Momstrology: Parenting with Astrology

Scorpio Mother-In-Law + Cancer Daughter-In-Law

Where You Click

Cancer and Scorpio are like two peas in a pod. You’re both primarily homebodies who prefer to keep your lives private and your social circles selectively small.  You’ll understand one another’s need for peace and quiet. It’s easy to relax around each other. With your shared appreciation for arts and culture, you’ll enjoy visiting galleries, attending symphony concerts, or strolling around a lake while discussing the latest article you read in a magazine. 

Your family values are similar here–you believe that loyalty and closeness are essential. Gossip about outsiders is one thing, but when it comes to your relatives, mum’s the word with you both. Getting close to either of you is a bit like being hazed into a secret society or a sorority. You don’t let just anybody pass go, but once they’re in, they’re in. 


Where You Clash

Neither of you is overt about your personal business, but the downfall is that your relationship may feel a bit superficial at times. Who will be the first to open up and share a more vulnerable piece of herself? This could take years, even decades which is sad since the two of you CAN become great confidantes for each other once the ice finally thaws.

Scorpio has a stinger that sometimes takes the form of verbal barbs. Your mother-in-law’s scathing commentary on the world can put sensitive Cancer on edge. Though she may be critiquing someone else, you’ll feel self-conscious nonetheless wondering, “Do I do that? And if I do, will she hate me too?” You could quickly become twisted up like a pretzel trying to please her. Your best bet: gently encouraging your Scorpio mother-in-law to be more compassionate of other people’s flaws.
