When you enter into a romantic relationship, you’re (hopefully) engaging with your partner on an adult playing field. The idea is that you have moved beyond your childhood. But for some, parent/child dynamics remain a major part of their love life. If you have Cancer/Capricorn on the 1st/7th House axis (or vice versa) you probably end up playing the role of the child and/or parent in your intimate relationships. This is who you are; it’s neither positive nor negative. But it can cause difficulties if you’re not conscious of how these energies are operating.
Cancer and Capricorn represent family. More specifically, Cancer represents the archetypes of mother/child, and Capricorn represents the paternal archetype. Cancer is about nurturing, and Capricorn is about authority. Together, they create the security that enables you to survive. These zodiac signs can be embodied in men or women, even though the Moon (Cancer’s ruler) is associated with feminine energy and Saturn (Capricorn’s ruler) is associated with male energy.
