The Emotional Compatibility
Their emotions differ on a vast level. Cancer is emotional & has a strong need to express and feel it all. On the contrary, Capricorn is restricted & stays bottled up most of the time. Initially, this very difference can be one of the reasons for their attraction. As the cold Capricorn awkwardly enjoys the loving attention of pampering Cancer. While the forever emotional Cancer learns a practical thing or two about the ways of life.

The Issues in Paradise
Cancer relies on love and the endless need for the same to be expressed. Capricorn relies on hard work & weighs everything on the scale of reality or even materialism.
