ZODIAC: CANCER AND VIRGO COMPATIBILITY FOR LOVE

Cancer Virgo compatibility?

When people ask “As a Cancer – will I be compatible with a Virgo man” or “Or as a Virgo – will I be compatible with a Cancer woman” generally they are referring to their sun sign because that is all they know about.

In Western Astrology you are considered Cancer if you are born between (and including) June 21 – July 22. But in Vedic Astrology Cancer sun is from July 16 – August 17. So often you may be a Cancer in Western Astrology, but in Vedic Astrology (because it also considers the north and south nodes of the moon), you may not be a Cancer sun at all. It is pushed back three weeks, so you may actually be a Gemini sun. So if you were a Cancer in Western Astrology, you will only remain one if you were born between and including July 16 – July 22. But if you thought you were a Leo, you may now be a Cancer!

In Western Astrology you are considered Virgo if you are born between (and including) August 22nd to September 22nd. But in Vedic Astrology Virgo sun is from September 17th to October 17th. So often you may be a Virgo in Western Astrology, but in Vedic Astrology (because it also considers the north and south nodes of the moon), you may not be a Virgo sun at all. It is pushed back three weeks, so you may actually be a Leo sun. So if you were a Virgo in Western Astrology, you will only remain one if you were born between and including September 17th – September 22nd. But if you thought you were a Libra, you may now be a Virgo!

Dating and marriage compatibility depends more on the Lagna

In Vedic Astrology, your sun sign isn’t considered very important. It is more important what your ascendent (also called your “rising sign” or “Lagna”) is. This is calculated based on the day you were born, the year you were born and the time (in hours and minutes). Sometimes you can find your time of birth on your birth certificate. In other cases you may need to contact the hospital to find out. Of course, sometimes hospitals don’t record this information very accurately (generally they write it down after you were actually born), so a Vedic Astrology rectification is recommended. Contact us if you would like to be put in touch with a Vedic Astrologer who can do this.

What are the qualities of a Cancer rising?

Cancer zodiac sign

The main qualities of Cancer (called “Kataka” in Sanskrit) are:

  • Emotional
  • Intuitive
  • Doesn’t walk in a straight line
  • Sensitive on the heart level
  • Perceptive
  • Intelligent
  • Imaginative
  • Decisive
  • Kind
  • Frugal.

The Lord (controller) of the Cancer sign is the Moon (“Chandra” in Sanskrit). So this house is also affected by how happily the Moon is placed in your chart and the sign in which it is situated.

However, these qualities can be reduced by the effects of other areas of your chart. Please Contact Us if you would like to be put in touch with a Vedic Astrologer (also called a Jyotishi) who can tell you more about your chart and about Cancer Virgo compatibility.

The Lord (controller) of the Virgo sign is Mercury (called “Budha” in Sanskrit). So this house is also affected by how happily Mercury is placed in your chart and the sign in which it is situated.

However, these qualities can be reduced by the effects of other areas of your chart. If you want to know more about this, please contact me and ask me to put you in touch with a Vedic Astrologer (also called a Jyotishi) who can tell you more about your chart.

Like their symbol the crab, Cancer people tend to have a soft emotional side hidden beneath their exterior. Their home and family life is very important to them, although they do tend to keep it private.

Like the maiden that is their symbol, Virgo people tend to be a little shy. They also can tend to be fussy about their food, so be careful which restaurant you select for a first date!

If you are dating someone with a Virgo or Cancer sun sign (according to Western Astrology), find out if you are both compatible astrologically

Many aspects of a person’s chart affect who they are (e.g., their ascendent and the house and sign their moon is in). So to really know if you will be compatible with them, the best way to tell is to have a Vedic Astrology Compatibility Report based on both of your birth times. It look at all aspects of your life together such as:

  • how you both approach work
  • whether there will be power or dominance issues in your relationship
  • whether being together will help you both be healthier
  • whether you will grow in wealth together
  • your sexual attraction
  • whether you could produce happy children
  • how much love and harmony there will be between you both.
