Although water and air signs can be an odd mix, the planets soften the rough edges in this combo. The Moon (Cancer's ruler) and Venus (Libra's ruler) are so harmonious that these two make a peaceful, loving pair. In most cases, they bring out each other's best. Libra gives Cancer the security they crave; Cancer offers a stable relationship that balances lonely Libra.
Both signs are highly sensitive, and may try to cover it up with sarcastic jokes. While they're both the take-it-slow types, once they find each other, they may bend the rules. They are creative and verbal, and share an appreciation for words that are well-spoken and well-written. Both can be uncomfortable with affection until they really know somebody—expect a few awkward hugs in the beginning. In the end, they both value true love, and if they find the "real thing" in each other, they'll stay together 4ever. They both know how to get the best for less, and make an excellent shopping team. When upset, they can brood with the best of them.
