The two of you are quite different. Whereas Sagittarius tends to be idealistic, and somewhat impersonal or philosophical about personal issues, Cancer is very emotional, sympathetic, and apt to get totally enmeshed in personal problems or concerns. Sagittarius is often humorous or blase and even seemingly indifferent to the things which matter so much to Cancer. This, along with Sagittarius's characteristic blunt honesty, can wound Cancer deeply.
Another difference between you is that Cancer cherishes the past, while Sagittarius often has little interest in reminiscing or dwelling on what went before. Sagittarius is more future-oriented, and also more of a gambler or risk-taker.
Although you may have a lot to offer one another, it is unlikely that spending a great deal of time together would work out well. You're best for each other in small doses.
Essentially, Cancer is a good person who needs to deal with family and emotional issues. Cancer's hugs are world class and Cancer's snuggles are second to none. Cancer is naturally inclined to be touchy about some, but not all relatives and needs to work on the family tree and make some sense of it all.
Cancer is a sexual zodiac sign to you, so there's hope for a hot affair. But it could be fleeting, because of the many basic differences between your temperaments. How much energy the two of you are prepared to give to this relationship will determine how long it lasts.
In the relationship between Cancer and Sagittarius adjustment is key. You both need to give more than you get. This association requires extra sensitivity. At first, you both may be somewhat irritated about each other. In time, with work, the very thing that caused the irritation may lead to personal fulfillment. You can't force growth in this alliance - go along with the changes. To beat the odds, change your routines.

While in the Western World the Rat is looked upon with disgust and revulsion, he is admired and honored in much of the East for his cleverness and aptitude for acquiring things of value. In China and Japan Rats are signs of good luck and prosperity.
The Rat is a charming creature capable of captivating almost anyone. Rats are connoisseurs who take pleasure in flaunting their style. They also possess a great sense of humor. Rats can be very protective and generous to those who are loyal to them.
Rats are also quite self-serving. They have their own goals and ambitions and will not hesitate to advance them. Those outside a Rat's social circle may find them easily riled and verbally abusive. Rats do not often pass up the opportunity to debate.
Rats are very curious about everything, and are always on the hunt for new information - anything that may be of use to them in the present or future.
The Rat's biggest problem is they find it difficult to see beyond themselves. If they can find room for others they will be well on the way to true happiness.
