Western Star Signs
You share some similarities: both of you need security and are disinclined to take unnecessary, wild, or foolish risks. Departure from the safety of the well-known and familiar makes you both very uncomfortable. Radical changes or big gambles are not your style.
The major difference between you is that Capricorn is much more emotionally detached, somewhat dry or inexpressive of feelings and emotional needs, while Cancer is the very opposite.
Cancer requires (and gives) emotional support, tenderness, and sympathy much more than Capricorn does. Capricorn may seem hard, unfeeling or indifferent to Cancer at times, and Capricorn may well benefit from Cancer's softness and nurturing qualities.
Capricorn is also more ambitious and concerned with career, accomplishments, and the world at large, than Cancer is.
Cancer is not necessarily the most direct individual. Security is something Cancer is always aware of. Usually it's a top priority. Cancer is definitely strong and protective of turf.
Sexually and emotionally, your Sun signs are at odds: the sensitive and emotional Cancer requires more than your restrained kind of affection knows how to give. It's not that you won't; you just don't know how to. Cancer will need to show you their needs, patiently.
You both like to start things and to take the initiative. You're each restless, energetic, outgoing, opportunistic and ambitious. Probably, you're both more busy than bored.

Chinese Star Signs
While these two seem totally mismatched, there is the potential for a great relationship. As lovers they may help each other blossom in ways that neither could do alone. Their overall compatibility rating is 50%.
The Chinese Astrological Ox is neither slow witted nor clumsy. These powerful, dependable beings were meant to lead. While their approach to fulfilling a task may be slow and methodical, they are capable of great things and never lose sight of their goals. Their stamina is endless and they are detail conscious. They believe in getting things right the first time.
To outsiders Oxen may seem to be too serious and unable to "let their hair down." Being introverts, these are easy assumptions to make about Oxen. Also they are very independent and appear to have no regard for what others think of them. However, hidden behind that distant air shown to the world, is a being that feels pain, loneliness and regret that they do not connect well with others.
The Oxen's comforts and delights are derived from friends and family and work well done. As a friend, lover or family member the Ox makes a reliable and protective ally who is always tender and affectionate.
When away from the family and out in the world the Ox can be stubborn and dogmatic. They are not ones to back down or take much guff from anyone.
The Ox is a good source of honest advice.
The Ox needs to try to be less quick to judge others. When they see the value of those who have qualities different than their own they are well on their way to a warmer social life.
Note that Chinese star signs are determined by your exact date of birth, and not just your birth year. For more information, read about the Chinese Zodiac »
