by Anna Kovach, relationship astrologer
If you’re a Virgo man and Cancer woman combo, here’s all you need to know about how your signs are compatible and how you can bring him closer.

The combination of a Virgo man and Cancer woman can be incredibly stimulating and comforting to both partners, as you both get underneath each other’s skin in the best way possible.

Sensitive water sign Cancer is subtle and not too forceful, and you are perceptive when it comes to the details that matter to Virgo, which suits a Virgo man perfectly.

If you are looking at how Virgo man and Cancer woman are compatible, here are some tips for you:

Virgo Man and Cancer Woman chemistry

Cancer is an affectionate and sentimental sign, and that makes Virgo feel secure. You share a similar approach to money and domestic comfort, and Cancer’s dependency works very well with Virgo’s protectiveness. On the downside, you both tend to be more critical than necessary.

But on the upside, you draw each other out, and you can enjoy beautiful, mutually satisfying sex.

In astrological terms, this is an ideal combination. Earthbound, detail-obsessed, self-sufficient Virgo offers a safe and healing space for containing the emotional warmth that affectionate, needy Cancer longs for.

Virgo man and Cancer woman can grow and thrive in a relationship where effort is made to understand each other, even when there is conflict.

Given your shared sensitivities, and a similar approach to the material world, the outlook is good for a long and stable relationship as long as mutual respect, and emotional maturity is maintained as the highest priority.

This is about as good as it gets, so don’t let fear ruin it, go for it.

Cancer Woman


Watery Cancer natives are known for their sensitive and compassionate skills with other people. Under that hard crabby shell is the softest sweetest soul imaginable and since you would never harm anyone intentionally, you put a lot of energy into protecting yourself as well.

The danger here is that you miss many opportunities for love because of your need to protect yourself from pain.

If you meet a Virgo man know that he is a healer who may appear not to need you, but deep down he appreciates your more exceptional points, and he will benefit from your affection and love. Curb your tendency to use emotional manipulation as a Virgo man does not read the subtle signals very well.

Master your fear and tell him what you need and want, and you could be very pleasantly surprised.

Your need for emotional and material security, sometimes makes you cling to unhealthy attachments.

Your great challenge with a Virgo man will be respecting his need to be alone. He is a thoroughly independent soul who is quite happy on his own, and the fact that he will be much more comfortable with you is something you will need to demonstrate patiently and logically.

Be patient as this is one relationship that bears fruit over time.

Virgo Man

Virgo men live a life of the mind, and they can be complete martyrs to their work. They sometimes need to be coaxed away from their computers where they tend to indulge in action for its own sake and be reminded of the sensual and simple pleasures of life. If anyone can do that, a Cancer woman can.

Virgo men are loyal lovers who only open up completely when they feel safe and appreciated. The trick with them is to keep your mystery intact and practice being detached, as they cannot stand emotional manipulation or signs that someone else is deeply insecure and needy.

Both trust and honest communication are vital for an earthy, practical Virgo man to feel at peace with the world. As a Cancer woman you can appreciate their anxieties and need to take care of small details, and you will love the fact that when you want the same things.

When you both let go of fear, a beautiful, emotional and sensual space opens up in which a sublime sense of comfort and deep love can grow.

What Works


There is much capacity for love and tenderness in this relationship and you are a good match because both of you avoid material and emotional risks.

You will both be able to take care of others with sensitivity, even when you are both following productive careers of your own.

A Virgo man can inject a bit of rational detachment to a Cancer woman and Cancer can teach Virgo to be a little more forgiving of others’ faults.

Virgo man and Cancer woman can become a formidable team of healers that those around you turn to when in crisis.

As long as Cancer doesn’t try to push Virgo into a commitment too early, this could be a happy long term bond.

What to Watch out for


Cancer’s use of subtle emotional signals to show what she wants could fly right over Virgo’s head, making the Virgo man appear cold and selfish. Clear communication is vital for Cancer to get what she wants and needs.

You will also have to work at keeping intimacy alive, as there is potential for you both to curl up with a good book instead of with each other.

Cancer needs to watch out for being too needy, a Virgo man wants to feel useful and will protect you to the ends of the earth, but not if he is asked to give up too much of his independence too soon.

If you ask a Virgo man how he feels, he will tell you honestly, so be prepared to hear the truth. While Cancer tends to feel and Virgo prefers to think things through, this should be a strength in a combination if you approach your differences with sensitivity and respect.

The Score

This is a solid and sensible relationship combination with fewer fireworks than other matches but more potential for long term bonding and enduring happiness.

Mutual care and loving nurture is the theme of your life together and without trying too hard, you could find a great deal of comfort and security in each other’s company.
