Secretive Scorpio and shy Cancer find an almost sisterly solace in each other’s intense need for privacy. There will be limited meddling here. Your mother-in-law intuitively understands why you prefer to stick to “safe” subjects as you warm up to one another. It may take a long time for you to truly get to know each other, but as long as you keep in contact (and encourage her son to call his mother!) this should be a fine relationship.

You have similar social styles, preferring to keep a tight-knit circle of friends and family around you. You’re both major homebodies who can easily occupy yourselves for a day with reading, knitting, cooking, and quiet meditation. Family vacations can be as easy as renting a semi-secluded beach house where everyone simply gets to chill and enjoy the peaceful sounds of the waves lapping up on the beach.


Where You Clash

She’s a bit of a busybody when it comes to her son’s life. She expects that you’ll report to her on his health, eating habits, and whereabouts at her request. This feels like tattletale terrain to Scorpio–so not your style! Cancer’s maternal instincts may send out SOS signals if you don’t play along with her spy games. (Hello, nagging mother). You’ll find her need to be so involved in her son’s life obnoxious and invasive. 

When slighted, Scorpio seeks revenge and Cancer starts a cold war. You’re both overly sensitive to each other’s comments and actions. There may be a tit-for-tat pettiness between you. Watch out! The scorekeeping could get ugly. When faced with conflict, you’re both more likely to vent to other people instead of talking to each other. This can spark ripples of family drama with relatives feeling forces to take sides. Unless you want to play an ongoing game of Family Feud, learn how to quickly and sensitively discuss disagreements with your Cancer mother-in-law.
