Leo + Cancer
What it really comes down to for a Leo and Cancer is that despite their natural chemistry, their relationship doesn’t work practically. This is frustrating to the Leo, who wants to feel secure in relationships, and upsetting to the Cancer, who wants to feel a deep and other-worldly connection to their partner. This inherent discord sets the ground for their relationship to be tumultuous at best and downright brutal at worst. Leos can be very off-the-cuff with their commentary, often flip-flopping between being super kind and open-hearted and unnecessarily critical. Cancers take all of this to heart, even if they don’t express how much they are hurting. Over time, they develop aggression as a defense mechanism, and the relationship starts to blow up from there.
Capricorn + Aquarius
What a Capricorn and Aquarius have in common is that they are two of the most driven and determined signs in the zodiac. What they do not have in common is how they approach their ambition, and that’s really what makes this relationship a no-go. Capricorns crave certainty and clarity, whereas Aquariuses can be more about the “performance,” their relationship exists in great part because they think it makes them look good in some way, not because they are as emotionally invested as the Capricorn is. Ultimately, the Aquarius becomes domineering while the Capricorn – desperate to feel secure and very easily influenced by those they love – takes it for a while. However, their inherently independent and self-respecting nature will reveal itself after a while, and they will start to fight back or leave the situation altogether.
