Cancer and Cancer Co-Worker Compatibility
When two Cancerians work together, a nurturing work relationship ruled by emotions is the result. A Cancer-Cancer partnership forms a deeply devoted team that will remain loyal to one another's interest. Both will learn how to best heed and cool the flames of their partner's outbursts, and both will feel comfort in their underlying commitment to getting the job done. This team is devoted, nurturing, helpful and sympathetic, that is, when they're not brooding, emotionally manipulating, or self-pitying. If they learn to keep their emotions in check, the partnership will nurture both workers.
Cancer's place is in the home. The moody Crab is not as concerned with the opinions of the world as they are with the condition and activities of the household. With fierceness, Cancer will not hesitate to attack when a loved one or their domestic security is being threatened. These devotional qualities are the Crab's greatest contribution to the alliance: working and fighting for the success of their ventures. The Crab (often known for being a touch 'Crabby') must not give in to their ungrounded emotional flare-ups and ability to injure the other's feelings. Beware of Cancer's fine art of emotional manipulation.
Cancer is ruled by the Moon, and this Sign is most sensitive to the moods that ebb and flow with the Moon's monthly cycle. Historically, the Moon is thought to be the Great Mother, thus the instigator of Cancer's great maternal and caregiving nature. Cancer's instinct and energy geared toward comfort and domesticity provide a cozy work environment, perfect for a growing partnership between two Crabs.
Cancer is a Water Sign. Their emotional response and instinct is the backbone of their business team. Since Cancer's emotions are trampled so easily, it is not unusual for them to hide within their Crabby shells. This tendency to draw within one's self makes Cancer a difficult business partner at times, but two Crabs together should be able to recognize this need for personal space and respect temporary time-outs. Their Element of Water acts as a safe buffer zone separating themselves and their close associates and loved ones from the outside world.
Cancer is a Cardinal Sign. The Crab is not shy about getting exactly what they want from their colleague. The protecting feral beast within is the first emotional element to leap forward under stress or a threat to the pack. However, this emotional call to arms is exactly the kind of toe-trampling that will crush Cancer's tender feelings. Fierce loyalty binds the Cancer-Cancer relationship, but can also threaten its very existence. These allies must constantly try to perceive their emotions from the other's perspective.
The best aspect of the Cancer-Cancer work partnership is their utter devotion to enriching the success of their efforts and the strong emotional bond that develops through their endeavors. Together they will keep themselves safe from the cruel work world and nurture a successful team spirit.
