Cancer Moon Sign People

The moon is in its rulership in the sign of Cancer, so this is where it can express itself to the best and fullest. Moon in Cancer natives are deeply emotional and very sensitive. They have psychic abilities and can read others very easily—they really do know what you are thinking before you say a word. Such strong emotions can make a person moody and oversensitive, so try to gauge the general frame of mind the moon in Cancer person is in when you approach them. They are interested in occult subjects and are often astrologers, tarot card readers, psychics, or mediums. They can also sometimes read auras and chakras.

These individuals are always well-versed in ancient knowledge that is being rediscovered. Since the moon travels through all twelve signs of the zodiac in about 28 days, you will see Cancer sun and moon natives in twelve different lights! You won’t ever be bored for sure. The moon stays in each sign for about 2 ½ days.

Close Relationships Are Important to Cancer Moon People

These are people with strong family ties, and don’t you dare say a word about their Sainted Mother! They speak with mom on the phone several times a day. They have a handful of close friends that they consider family as well, and tend to hang onto friends for a long time, often from childhood all through adulthood. This is all well and good, but if you are in a romantic relationship with any Cancer Moon sign people and their family and friends don’t like you, it could be a deal breaker for your affair. So if you love this person, be prepared to do your best to get along with the important figures in their lives. These people are old-fashioned and romantic, and normally looking for a stable, committed relationship, like marriage. They love children and normally want to have a big family. Actually, their health and well being can depend upon it. They like belonging to close-knit communities and social groups, it gives them a sense of security.

Since they have such a love for children you can also find them as midwifes, nurses, OBGYN doctors, or emotional counselors. They really shine there since they have such great intuition and good bedside manner. It sometimes surprises people that Cancer moon sign people are much stronger emotionally than they appear. After all, Cancer is a cardinal sign of leadership. They handle business matters very well, and are trusted members of whatever business they gravitate towards. They are very security minded and are good at handling money, so you will find them in the worlds of accounting, banking, and real estate. Cancer rules the home, so they like to buy and sell them, as well as take care of their own.

They also make good actors or writers. Just because they are a touch vulnerable, don’t make the mistake of thinking that they are weak. They may shed a tear as they argue with you, but as soon as you leave they will calmly clean a closet or balance the checkbook. Cancer moon types are much tougher and more resilient than you think. Remember the hard shell that surrounds a crab? It knows when to hide its head to protect itself. Many astrologers describe Cancer as a whiny, hypochondriac sign, but it is a cardinal sign of leadership, and you will find many respected business people and others as Cancers. They also tend to be in situations or lives where they get a lot of public attention for people so quiet!


Cancer Moon Sign People Are Emotional and Nurturing

Cancer moon sign people are the care-takers of the zodiac. They are loyal friends who will take you into their homes for weeks while you work out problems and get back on your feet. They usually have pets they dote upon. They are serious and responsible parents and siblings, often the ones who smooth over family spats and help solve problems. Cancer moon sign people are very sympathetic, and put that into action all the time. They love to putter around the house and garden, and are good cooks. You may find them as owners of a florist too. They can’t stand the thought of anyone going hungry or being alone and needing help. They are always willing to feed the hungry, or to crusade to help the down-trodden. These are peaceable people as well.

Some of them come off as needy and self-absorbed, but they worry too much, especially about health related matters. While young they feel like they don’t fit in anywhere. Later, they find out that practically everyone feels that way at times. Cancer moon sign people are imaginative, creative souls, who love poetry and music. They are tender and lovable, but are afraid to let others see how sensitive they really are, so may keep that hidden until they know you better. You will find they have a great sense of humor, and may use it to cheer you up as you tell them your problems. They are good listeners and will do their best to give you sound advice.

Cancer moon people tend to hold in their emotions for a long time. Then when you least expect it, they let loose a diatribe about all that bothered them about you for the last ten years! This can be very disconcerting to say the least. They need to learn to get their feelings and issues out into the open, as it’s not healthy to keep them in and to brood about them. So if you have an important Cancer moon sign in your life, try to talk about any issues that come up as soon as they do. It's best to air things out before they fester. Cancers don't mean to hold grudges, but are so afraid of hurting your feelings, they keep their own in, and this can cause trouble in any relationship.

Cancer Moon Sign People Are Restless and Businesslike

Cancer moon sign people also are restless and love to travel to exotic places, to meet new people. They like to socialize and are good hosts. But they also need “down” time to be alone with their thoughts. Do not take it personally when they want to be alone. They do actually have a rich inner life and will go out by themselves at times. People seem to think they are clingy, but in actuality a Cancer moon is a person who feels comfortable going out to dinner or a movie alone. It helps to recharge their energy level, which is a bit low, as it comes in spurts. They do a lot for a period, then sort of go into seclusion for a bit, until you think, “Gee, I haven’t heard from so and so for a while, I should call.” They tend to withdraw when they are upset and having problems. So you need to be able to judge when to offer help and try to cheer them up, and when it’s best to just leave them alone. It is hard for them to say “no” to those in need, as it is also difficult for them to put themselves first. This is the cause of their occasional burnout.

As you likely know by now, the moon passes through all 12 zodiac signs each month, staying in each for a little more than 2 days. So this will affect not only Cancer moon and sun people, but all the people in your life. When I began my serious study of astrology, I kept a moon journal. After a few months, it became obvious that specific things happened or just worked out better in certain moons. Capricorn moons are good times to pay bills and take care of policies, to work on the serious things in your life. Gemini moons are times to entertain. If you choose to follow such a journal, it can help you immensely. You will be able to see what is a good day to ask your boss for a raise, or a good day to work in your garden.

Cancer moon sign people are well respected people that you can trust. They are often the treasurers of clubs, or the ones who help their family and friends with financial planning. You are in good hands when they decide to help you. These are people who tell the truth when you ask for advice. It may not be the truth you want to hear. But it is never said just to hurt you. Cancer moon natives are very conscientious and normally very well liked. When in their homes, you feel cozy, welcome and will never go home hungry! You may not want to go home at all!

Questions & Answers

Question: I’m a Cancer moon with Libra sun, Sagittarius rising and Venus in Sagittarius as well. What does this say about me?

Answer: The Libra Sun and Cancer Moon are both leadership signs, so you have plans and are a person who knows what you want and where you are going. Cancers are kind, emotional, expressive people who are family oriented. They like to be the power behind the scenes, but somehow always find a way to get attention. You are friendly and well-liked, trusted, and people always ask for your advice, because it is sensible and you don't judge others.

The Libra Sun means you are ruled by gentle Venus. You also like nice things, but the Cancer and Libra ambition means you will work hard to get them. You are personable, and I can see you working in the public, in the hospitality industry, as the owner of your own business, and being creative and artistic. Libras want to be half of a couple; Libra rules the marriage house in astrology, so finding a partner is very important to you. You don't like crude behavior or coarse language and are sort of refined.

Sag rising is the way others see you. You can be tall with this ascendant. You are interested in religions and cultures, education and philosophy. You could fall in love with a person from a different country and culture, especially with your Venus in Sag, too. The Sag in you means you are blunt in speech and can hurt other's feelings, though the Cancer and Libra should mitigate that somewhat. You stand up for what you believe in.

I am a contributor to several niche sites and have written many instructional astrology articles. I wrote a whole series of Venus articles because it represents your love life and social life. I have covered what Venus means in each of the zodiac signs, and these articles are found on I will give you the URL to Venus in Sag; it has more info than I have room to write here and should answer your Venus questions:

Question: I'm a Cancer Moon, with Aries Sun and Leo Rising. I find it somewhat difficult to balance this watery emotional core with these fiery placements. What do you recommend?

Answer: Hello,

Well, all of your planets are in an astrology sign, all 10, if we include the Sun and Moon, or luminaries. So having the Sun and a Fire Rising sign isn't so bad with a water moon.

The Aries and Cancer are leadership signs, so you have a strong personality, and Leos can be a tad bossy, or come off that way, since the Rising sign is the way others see you.

Aries Sun people are the pioneers, always the trailblazers. This can be evident in your work, or just in your social group (I bet you make all the plans)! Aries are sunny and warm, optimistic and fun people. You can be the life of the party.

The Cancer Moon means you are emotional, but nurturing and kind. Cancers often change, as the Moon goes through all 12 zodiac signs in 28 days. So you make a little shift every two days or so. Cancers are also outgoing to a certain extent, although they do value some privacy. But they get bored easily and know how to throw a great party. Just because Cancer rules the home doesn't mean you walk around with a broom in one hand and a mop in the other. You love to go to restaurants, clubs, vacations by the sea, museums, and are a restless creature. You are also lovable and a little bit reserved, but since Aries shows their love passionately and wants everyone to know, and Leos all expect to be treated like kings and queens, these three signs should serve you well.

Sometimes if we look at the elements, water puts out fire. I have seen Water and Sun Sign couples where the water person worries so much about the fire person it hurts the fire person's development. Is that what you feel here? I don't think you need to worry about it. You could be overwhelming to people with the Aries Sun and Leo Rising, and I think your Cancer Moon is a calming influence on you. Llewellyn puts out a yearly Moon sign book and also an astrology calendar which shows what signs and when the moon moves into and out of them. This could help you plan what to do on the days the Moon is in certain signs. Here is an article I wrote that might help you:

Question: I’m a Scorpio sun, Cancer moon, and Sagittarius rising. What does that say about me?

Answer: The Scorpio Sun means you are independent, strong-willed, stubborn or persistent, and someone who likes to achieve their goals. Scorpios are sensual and have strong emotions. You wrote this from the article I wrote about Cancer Moon sign emotions, so that should have answered what your Cancer Moon means if you read it. But you have a love of family, are opinionated, change often, but also like people and are sociable, as long as you have some private time. Both the Scorpio and Cancer make you secretive and needing time alone. But both are also capable of being loyal friends and do have the ability to be sociable, just not all the time.

Sag rising is the way others see you. Most Sag rising people are tall. You are easy going and get along well with others when in a sociable mood. I think you like the outdoors and travel. Sag can bring an interest in foreign countries, philosophy, religion, and education. You think big. Since two-thirds of your trinity are water signs, the Sag in you gives you energy. I bet you like animals and sports. There are quiet Sag people and ones who talk constantly, I am guessing you are one of the more quiet ones.

Question: I'm a Capricorn sun sign and a Cancer moon sign female, what does that say about me? I find it difficult to date but the person I;m interested in is an Aquarius sun sign and a Libra moon sign. Is there any chance of having a serious relationship?

Answer: Being Capricorn/Cancer, you are a leader and have goals and plans. The Capricorn Sun is ambitious, so you want to succeed and want security in a relationship. The Cancer Moon means you are tender and romantic, but both signs are conservative, and you want a home and family. You don't want to waste time dating someone if you don't think it's going where you want it to go.

An Aquarius Sun changes often and unexpectedly, but Cancer changes every two and a half days, since the Moon changes signs that often, traveling the zodiac's 12 signs in 28 days. So both of you are quick to change, and can understand that about each other. Aquarius people aren't known for settling down, so this could be an issue. But the Libra Moon is in a square aspect to the Cancer/Capricorn, and Libra rules the marriage house, so it's a romantic person. Also, the square causes sexual tension, a plus in love relationship.

I would say give it a try, I think you two will have good chemistry and be able to communicate well. It's not a real lot for me to go on, but I like what I see! You both have planets in other signs and houses that I don't know, but these could possibly make it easier. It is certainly worth a try.

Question: Gemini Sun, Sagittarius rising and Cancer moon here. People believe I‘m a tough and funny person but when I‘m alone I‘m almost ALWAYS depressed and feeling down, crying mostly without a reason. What should I do?

Answer: I'm sorry to hear you are feeling depressed. I am hesitant to blame this on the trinity you have in astrology though. Do you feel so bad you think maybe you should see a therapist? If you are always depressed and feeling down and crying, I don't think your problem is your astrological trinity. You need to get help. Gemini Sun people are intelligent and interested in many topics. You are witty and fun. Sag rising means you come off as smart and don't judge people, you are easy to get along with most of the time. The Cancer Moon can make you emotional and the Moon changes signs every 2 1/2 days, so your moods would differ as the Moon sign changes every few days, even though your natal moon will always be in Cancer. There is no astrological reason for this level of depression. Why don't you reach out to a professional you can talk to, and see why you are really feeling so down all the time? I wish you all the best.

Question: I am a Libra Sun with Cancer Moon and Sag Rising. Currently, I am really struggling with how to deal with my overwhelming emotions and need for reassurance. What can I do to help?

Answer: I think the Cancer Moon is the part of the trinity that is causing the overwhelming emotions and insecurity. Also, the planets move all the time, creating what we call transits. Many of the major ones are in Capricorn right now, which opposes Cancer. So that means it may be rocky for you emotionally for a bit. But I like the Libra Sun here. Libra is an air sign, which allows you to look at issues in an objective manner. Both Cancer and Libra are what are called cardinal signs of leadership, and you like to be in control and to get your way. Libra is like the iron hand in the velvet glove, and Cancer doesn't go after what they want in a direct line. So is there an area of life important to you where you are particularly struggling? Since you have Sag rising, Sag is a happy go lucky fire sign which can give you positive energy to help pull you through a hard time. This puts Gemini on the 7th, or partnership house, so Cancer is in the 8th house. This rules the money of the partner, insurance, death. Did you recently lose someone close to you, or is there a problem with an inheritance? I wish I had the whole chart here.

Venus is entering Pisces now, January 13, 2020, and that's a trine aspect to Cancer. That should help to calm you down and will remain in Pisces for about 30 days. Libras are normally confident, so are Sag people. Try to get out of your own way and keep busy so you aren't dwelling on your feelings too much. You know how they say life is what's happening while we are doing other things. I hope it improves for you!

Question: I'm a Scorpio sun, with Cancer moon, and Gemini rising. How would this define me?

Answer: This is only your Trinity, all of your planets are in a zodiac sign, and they all are at a distance from each other, called aspects. So this only partially defines you. When I interpret a Natal Birth chart, I begin with the Trinity, but people seem to think they are getting a total astrological profile with one, and they aren't. Also, nobody's Trinity is "harder" or as "different" as everyone thinks. I don't want to be rude, but I get about 50 requests like this a day. I need people to understand it's just a SMALL part of who they are astrologically, that a lot more info is in a chart.

That said, let's interpret what you gave me to go on! Scorpios are strong-willed and independent. You are also very emotional and a master at reading others. You come off as a little intimidating. But that's probably good because the Cancer Moon means you have tender emotions and are very nurturing, and may get your feelings hurt easily. Scorpios are also very kind when helping people weaker or needing help. They just don't broadcast it. Your family and friends mean a lot to you. Gemini Rising is how others see you. Gemini is an intelligent vibe, so you come off a brainy person who knows a lot on a variety of issues. It's also flirty and fun, and since Cancer and Scorpio are both serious water signs, I like this little bit of lightness in you. Also, both Gemini and Cancers like change and get bored rather easily. So you love to travel, reading, and learning about new things. You are also a good communicator, which should lead to a good career.

Question: I'm pretty confident that my Moon is in Cancer from what I gathered through research. Although by the time of birth it says my moon is in Capricorn. It sounds nothing like me to the point of where not one single description matches. How can that be?

Answer: Something is seriously wrong, because the Moon could be in the next zodiac sign, but Cancer and Capricorn are opposite signs. I don't know how your astrology chart was done, but military time needs to be used (along with time zones), and I think maybe the person used the AM time instead of the PM time, or vice versa. If you send me your birthday, month, day and year, time of birth, and city and state or country where you were born, I can look it up. Also, most astrology sites have tables. Try, its a trustworthy site for the planetary tables.

Question: I was born on the 18th of June in 2004 at 12:14 PM. I am a Gemini with Virgo rising and a Cancer moon. I feel so alone in these times, and it’s killing me. What’s your advice?

Answer: I am sorry you are feeling so bad right now. A Cancer Moon makes a person very emotional, and since it goes into a new sign each 2-1/2 days, it does get hard to deal with it. Your Moon has to go through the whole Zodiac in ONE MONTH, every month, and that could leave anyone upset and confused. You are a very sensitive person and care so much about everyone. They may not understand the depths of the emotions you feel.

With Virgo Rising, you are very responsible, and I think others come to you for advice, or just blab on about their problems, and it overwhelms you. You really want to help everyone so much, in a practical way, and it's hard for your feelings not to get involved too.

I like that you have the Gemini Sun, it means you are intelligent and have many interests. Try to get more time to yourself and pamper yourself a little more. I am Cancer with planets in Gemini, and it relaxes me to read or write poetry. Writing could be a good outlet for you.

Why don't you begin a journal? I used to keep one and write in it every night. I'd write all about what I felt and what happened that day. I would read it at the end of every month. It showed me what I was complaining about or worrying about, but maybe not doing anything about. Or you could spend time with people that bring you down. Your Cancer Moon picks up on other people's emotions too.

Geminis have many interests; maybe you should start a new hobby. All three of these signs crave change, so maybe you need to add some new habits or friends or interests to your life.

Question: I am a Cancer moon with Sagittarius Sun and Cancer rising. What does this tell about me?

Answer: You mostly seem like a Sun sign Cancer, even though your Sun isn't there. The Cancer Moon is how you feel emotions, and you change all the time. You are sensitive, kind, family oriented, loving and nurturing. Your feelings get hurt easily, although you are capable of defending yourself. Cancer is a leadership sign, strong and emotional.

Cancer rising is the way others see you, or the mask you put on. You are reserved and wait to get to know others before you get too involved with them. But you are kind and approachable, and people normally trust and like you.

The Sag Sun means you are easy going and accept others as they are. You are optimistic and cheerful, so this counteracts the Cancer in you and makes you less moody. You love travel and are restless. You are blunt in speech and have big ideas. You love to study other cultures, religions, philosophies, and law.

Don't forget ALL of your planets are in a zodiac sign, one of 12 houses, and all the planets in your chart make aspects to each other.

Question: I’m a Taurus sun Taurus moon and Cancer rising, my husband is a Cancer sun Cancer moon and Virgo rising. We aren’t very good at communicating with each other and when it comes to sex we aren’t really on the same page either. Why could this be?

Answer: I don't really like to speculate on your private business. Taurus Sun and Moon means you are a person of few words, and only say what's necessary, speak when there is something important to say. But Taurus is a sensual sign, and Cancer is romantic. You need to communicate and talk about the issue more. A Cancer Sun and Moon is shy and Cancer men do seem to get divorced frequently and have problems communicating in marriage, I don't know why. Their opposites in sign and sex, Capricorn women, don't have these issues. You are both gentle people, and I will take a guess are shy about discussing your needs and what you like. You are both romantic, try to reconnect, have some candlelight dinners, find some time for yourselves, and take it from there. Good luck.

Question: I'm a Leo Sun, Cancer Moon, and Taurus Rising. Can you tell me a little more details about what this says about my personality?

Answer: The Leo Sun means you are a person who gets your way. You demand a lot of attention and want to be treated like royalty. You have a sunny and warm personality, so others want to please you. You want the good things in life and are well groomed and well dressed all the time. You are a great host and love to go out on the town.

The Cancer Moon is about your emotional makeup. You are creative and artistic, a good judge of people, though not judgmental. You know who you can trust. You are sensitive and moody, and your feelings get easily hurt. Try to discuss this and don't let it fester if someone says or does something hurtful. You want a family and someone special to love.

Taurus rising is the way others see you. Taurus means you seem mellow and kind. Venus rules Taurus, so you come off as sensual in a natural kind of way. People seek out your company because you are pleasant to be around. You have a good head for business and also love good food, wine, and nice houses. But you will work hard to acquire those. Leo also wants the good life, but is more likely just to think they deserve it, and someone else can provide it. So you have both influences working at cross purposes in yourself. Both Taurus and Leo are fixed signs, so you are stubborn or persistent. But this, along with Cancer resilience, can help achieve your dreams.

Question: I was born on September 22nd, 1992, 3:50 AM in Croatia. I was always very interested in astrology (and astronomy as well), and according to some online calculators, my Moon is in Cancer, and my ascendant is Leo. I was wondering if that's correct. I feel like these 3 things (Virgo, moon in Cancer and Leo) are kind of conflicting. What do you think?

Answer: I looked up your Sun, and it is in Virgo, 29 degrees of Virgo. Some people still believe that they can have birthdays "on a cusp" which is untrue. So you are a true Virgo! That means you are intelligent; you care about your health, you get bored easily, and are a strong communicator. Virgos often work in service fields to be of help to others, an admirable trait to have.

Your Cancer Moon also means you have nurturing qualities and care deeply about those you love. You are imaginative, charming, moody, also easily bored, but it's a leadership sign so you'll get out there to find something for you and your friends to do, or will take a course to learn about a new subject you have a sudden interest in. You want security in a relationship and are likely to settle into one marriage with one person you feel comfortable with and who you trust.

The Leo Ascendant is the mask or facade we wear with people we don't know well. Leo is the Queen or King, and expects attention from other people. You want to look your best and will spend to get the better items to wear, although, with Cancer and Virgo in you, it can wait until it's on sale! Leos are strong-willed and usually attract a following. You are a good host and love to go out and also entertain.

Nothing is conflicting about these signs; they are in zodiac order, Cancer, Leo, Virgo. The Cancer Moon is in what is called a sextile aspect to the Virgo sun (easy, creative). And Leo goes well with both of those zodiac signs. So if you are experiencing conflict, there is another reason in your chart regarding other planets, houses or aspects. This trinity is a nice one.

Question: I am a Cancer moon with a Leo sun and Libra rising. I find myself in conflict with who I am most of the time. Can you help shed some light on how my combination of signs might be causing this?

Answer: I really can't see anything in this trinity which would cause you a problem. Cancer and Libra are what we call a square aspect, but as a Sun sign and rising sign, it shouldn't be making you feel in conflict with who you are. Leos are outgoing, sunny people who are generally strong-willed and likable, as long as you don't cross them. You like to be right and can get testy when others don't agree with you. But you are friendly and sociable. The Cancer Moon rules your emotions, and the Moon changes signs every 2 and a half days, it goes through each zodiac sign in a 28-day cycle, give or take. Maybe this is the cause of changes in your mood and causing you confusion. Each time the Moon changes sign, it's a good time to do different things. You can use this to your advantage with a good astrology calendar, and this article can help: I have a Cancer Sun and use the moon sign changes to my advantage.

Libra rising is the way others see you. Libras are the peacemakers. You like to work in partnerships, although when your Leo gets too strong, may insist on your own way. Otherwise, I can't see anything wrong. But all your planets are in a sign and house, so there is a lot of information here I can't see.

Question: I'm a Scorpio sun, Cancer moon, with a Pisces rising and Venus in Libra. Is this good?

Answer: That's a lot of water signs. You are very emotional and most likely psychic or have great intuition. The Scorpio sun is a fixed sign. You are independent, serious, need privacy, strong, capable, sensual, and a born leader. Scorpios are strong-willed and don't see shades of grey, so your opinions are very fixed. But the other positions soften that a bit.

The Cancer moon rules your emotions, and you need security in your life, especially in your love life. Cancers are moody and changeable, but generally likeable social butterflies. This is a leadership sign, so you are a hard worker and usually take the lead. You are very imaginative and creative, and use that to your advantage. You get bored easily, and like to travel, especially by water. You are ambitious and plan for the future.

Pisces rising is the way others see you. Pisces is a gentle, retiring sign. You are easily approachable and are very understanding of others. You are very spiritual and not materialistic. You would give a stranger the shirt off your back. You are psychic or have telepathy with those you are close to.

Venus in Libra rules love and social life. You were born to be half of a couple, even half of a business partnership. You will want to spend most of your time with a lover, and hate to be away from them. You want to be pampered and to go out often to nice places. If you don't get a lot of attention, the Cancer and Pisces in you will have hurt feelings. But the Scorpio makes you tough and you won't take any nonsense from a lover.

I like this combination, and would love to see you studying a metaphysical subject or getting into meditation. It would be good for you, as Cancer also needs alone time. This contradicts the Venus Libra a little. You want to see a partner constantly, but do have that side that needs private time.

Question: I am a twin, and I am curious on what makes us different by being born a few minutes a part?

Answer: I have never had the pleasure of casting horoscopes for twins. But the rule of astrology is first to know the birth time, to establish the beginning or ascendant on the chart. This changes every two hours. So depending on whether the Ascendant changed or the house, or planets on the cusps of the houses changed, it can alter how the whole astrology wheel is cast. There are 29 degrees in each astrology sign, so even though the second twin was born a few minutes later, some factors could have changed in that brief period. The Sun and Moon move fast, as does the sign ascending. So if they were in that late 29-degree point, the signs on the ascendant and on the houses could change in that short period.

We call the critical part of the horoscope a Trinity. If the second twin is born a few minutes later, or the moon or Sun changes zodiac signs during that period, this would account for differences between the twins. So one could have Aries rising, or the next would have Taurus rising. This will change what signs rule each of the 12 houses. But the 12 planets will be in the same signs, just at different parts or houses, and that would show up as different traits. But since the planets will be in the same signs, the twins will still have pretty similar charts. As I said, I've never been able to test this out!

Question: I'm an Aquarius sun, Cancer moon, and Sagittarius rising. Why is dating difficult for me?

Answer: It's really hard for me to answer questions like this without casting and interpreting a complete birth chart. I can't see what signs your other planets are in, or what houses, or what aspects your planets make to each other. You had to go on a site to get your ascendant, didn't they offer an explanation of your chart there? Unless you did the work and cast the chart yourself.

Aquarius is a freedom loving sign, and you don't like conventional relationships, so that could be one reason. Aquarius is ruled by Uranus, and you make sudden and erratic changes. This can confuse others.

Cancer rules your emotions. Cancer is a loving and nurturing sign. But Cancer's ruler is the Moon, and it travels through all 12 zodiac signs in a month, so you also go through little changes every 2 days or so. So that Cancer/Aquarius dynamic can try the patience of say, an Earth sign person, or someone who isn't up to a lot of change. Plus an Earth sign would bore you to death, I'd say no to that.

Sag people seem really friendly and outgoing, and usually don't judge others. They accept everyone and make others feel at ease. So that's not causing the dating issue.

Even though Cancer and Aquarius are changeable signs, there are many Cancer/Aquarius couples. I think it's the fact you need some space in a relationship and although Cancer loves security, Cancers need alone time, so also need space. You need someone who honors that and accepts you are a nonconformist. I hope that helps a little. Try an Air sign or Fire signs. Hang in there. Sometimes we meet someone great when we aren't looking.

Question: I have a Taurus sun, Cancer moon, and a Libra rising. I’m very intuitive. The more I read about my natal chart, the more fascinating it gets. I’ve always been drawn to learning more about tarot readings, mediums, and astrology. I’m very emotional, and in all of the jobs I’ve had I’ve always been a leader. When I was 21, I was made a manager over the course of four months. How do my other signs play roles in this?

Answer: I don't know what you mean by other signs since you know some astrology, you know all of your planets are in a zodiac sign. But you are doing well! The Cancer moon and Libra rising are what makes you a leader; they are called cardinal signs of leadership. It's also the Cancer moon that makes you emotional and drawn to psychic work. I'm really happy you are taking an interest in astrology, you are learning fast and have a gift for it if you choose to develop it! The signs your Sun, Moon, and Ascendant (or Rising sign) are in are called The Trinity.

Being a Taurus, you are a gentle person as Venus rules Taurus, so is Libra, but wait for that, it's a different dynamic. Taurus people are sensible and what you see is what you get. Your friends know they can count on you. You are sensual in a natural kind of way, although your other two trinity signs don't hurt here. Taurus takes their time and thinks things through. You want security and are a faithful person looking for a long-term relationship when you are ready. You can be stubborn but do it so sweetly people don't notice.

The Cancer moon represents your emotions. Since the Moon travels through all 12 zodiac signs in 28 days, your moods change every 2+ days. If you get a moon sign book or calendar, you will get to know which days are good for what purposes. Cancers like to be the power behind the scenes, yet always end up in the public eye anyway. They are charming, kind, nurturing, get bored easily, and love to travel. You are sensitive, but with the Taurus and Libra, I don't think you dwell on slights or get your feelings hurt too easily. Venus in Cancer is terrible with that.

Libra rising is the other cardinal sign, ruled by Venus, the iron hand in the velvet glove approach to leadership! You charm others and have an outgoing and pleasant personality. You really like other people and going out, except on those few Cancer moody days, full moons, and when the transiting moon is in Cancer, its conjunct the Natal Moon in your Trinity. Libras have trouble making up their minds, you want to be fair (the symbol is the balance of justice), so you look at all things from all sides. You sometimes would keep an opinion to yourself rather than hurt someone's feelings or cause a scene. Libras are attractive, and you work hard to look good. It rules the marriage house, so I see you with a partner someday.

You will always be an achiever with goals having both Cancer and Libra in your chart. It sounds like you are doing great at 21. Best wishes and if you have other questions, I'd be happy to work with you.

Question: I am a Libra sun, Capricorn moon, Libra Venus. How will my married life be?

Answer: Libra is the sign which rules partnerships and marriage, so since your Sun and Venus are there, you will put a lot of effort into finding the right partner, and I would be shocked if you didn't find a good marriage partner. Also, both Libra and Capricorn are cardinal and leadership signs, so you are an ambitious person who intends to achieve your goals and will be attracted to someone who is a go-getter like yourself. Your partner can't be lazy and has to have aspirations because you want nice things and are willing to work for them.

Libra people are charming and want to be liked. Even if you have a different opinion than those around you, you may keep it to yourself rather than make others, not like you. Balance is very important to you. You want a lovely home and love clothes, but realize this requires a good source of income. You could even be in a business of your own with your partner. You love people and entertaining. The Venus in Libra means you are a hopeless romantic, and can't imagine a life by yourself. You are a social creature and most likely able to attract attention because of your good looks and charm.

The Capricorn Moon adds to your desire to achieve. You hold in your emotions and need to learn to express them more, but the Libra in you helps with that. Capricorns are serious and symbolized by the mountain goat standing at the pinnacle of the mountain, or success, so it's important for you to find someone who shares your dreams of achievement. You are sensual and somewhat reserved in love until you are sure, but once you decide, I think your chances for a good married life will be fine. Just make sure you know the person and want many of the same things out of life.

Question: I'm a Cancer moon with Taurus sun, and Gemini rising, how does this affect my future decisions and personality?

Answer: Taurus Sun people are down to earth and want to settle down into a life of comfort, but are willing to work hard to get that. A Cancer Moon rules your emotional makeup, so you are romantic, as is Taurus. You are close with family, want financial security, and probably want to be in a monogamous relationship. You will make sensible decisions and consider them carefully. The Gemini Rising is the way others see you, and that's more outgoing and fun. The Taurus and Cancer can be fun as well, but as far as decisions, you aren't going to keep changing your mind, you are a serious person, who will enjoy a nice social life. Take care.

Question: I have my sun in Pisces, moon in Cancer and my rising in Sagittarius. How can I deal best with the overload of feelings and emotions and be more balanced?

Answer: Since what you tell me here is only water signs found in two out of three parts of your trinity, I can't really see why you have an overload of feelings and emotions. Besides these three positions, there are seven more planets in signs and in Twelve houses. Plus all the distances the planets are from each other form aspects, and I don't know that.

I'll guess that the Cancer Moon is what MAY be causing the overload of feelings. It probably gets worse during time when the Moon is in Cancer each month and also during the full moon. Cancers are very emotional and sensitive, that's why they are represented by the crab. They gave to toughen up a bit. Also, Pisces people are very tender-hearted, and empathetic, and maybe you are getting too involved in other people's problems. It's OK to say no to people sometimes, I think you let others drain you. Even people we love will take advantage of our energies if we let them, and because we love them, we often allow it. Try to make boundaries and get time to recharge your emotional batteries more often! I let people do that to me too! A good site to check where your other planets are is Cafe Hang in there and remember, if you can't take care of yourself, you can't take care of anybody!

Question: I'm a Virgo Sun, Cancer Moon with a Libra Rising. Is this a good placement? What do you recommend I should work on?

Answer: The Virgo sun means you are intelligent and hardworking. You are reliable and sensible. Virgos can be critical. They take good care of their health, but can become hypochondriacs. So be careful about that.

Cancer Moon represents your emotional outlook, and you are strongly emotional and express yourself well. You do change a lot, and that can confuse others. But you are nurturing, kind, charming, ambitious, and also romantic, and sensitive.

The Libra rising is the way others see you. Libras are fair, smart, usually lively and popular. You love to go out and like the better things in life. You are willing to work for them though. You like to do things in partnerships and want to be in a romantic partnership much of the time. You take time to consider decisions, because you want to look at the issue from all sides. It's a good Trinity; I don't see any really big issues with it.

Question: My boyfriend's DOB is 15/09/1990. His birth time is somewhere between 10.30 AM and 11.30 AM. His birth location is India. I want to know his moon sign. I'm a typical Libra and I'm worried if he's a Cancer. What's his moon sign?

Answer: I believe his Moon is in Leo, and describe that in an article called Leo Moon Sign Emotions if you type it in your browser.

Even if you are Cancer and he is Libra, those signs form a square aspect, but that's not bad. It can add a lot of excitement and challenge to a relationship. Be positive.

Question: What are your thoughts on the combination of Virgo sun, Leo moon, Scorpio rising?

Answer: Sure, as long as you understand this is a far cry from the interpretation of a whole Natal Astrological Birth chart. This is called The Trinity.

A Virgo Sun person is fun to be with, witty and knowledgeable about many topics. This is someone up on the topics of the day, and a friendly, kindhearted companion. This is a person with an agile mind, who also cares much about their health and is conscious of living a healthy lifestyle.

The Moon represents your emotions, so in Leo, you are a romantic, but expect to be shown a boatload of attention. You want to be treated like royalty all the time. And it could be hard to find someone who worships you enough. But you are warm and generous, a great host, and love to enjoy life. You are happy to go out to try new places and meet new people. Leos want the best in clothes and furnishings. You won't leave a burning building unless you are sure you look good. But in love you are loyal and once you decide, nobody will talk you out of it.

Scorpio rising is the mask you show the world. Scorpio rising people come off as very reserved and a little like they may not care. But you are sizing people up and deciding if you really do want to get to know them better. You give off a strong vibe, and some will be intimidated by it. You are able to read people very well, and they know it. But you are also hardworking and driven. You research anything which interests you. You are also sensual and this comes way through. Both Leo and Scorpio are fixed signs, so you are a tad stubborn. The Scorpio is the more serious of the signs in your trinity. Virgo and Leo are more outgoing, Scorpio needs privacy a little more and you are hard to read for other people. It's a good combination, I don't see anything hard or to worry about.

Question: My son has a Cancer moon, Gemini sun and Libra rising. What does that say about him?

Answer: Gemini Sun people are intelligent and curious, so want to learn a little bit about everything. They can be social butterflies, but tend to do too much, causing nervousness or stomach ailments. They need to learn to relax. The Cancer Moon means he is very emotional, caring, creative, and strong willed. His feelings can be hurt easily, but it's a leadership sign, so he can do what he wants to do. Libra Rising is another leadership or Cardinal sign, so he will find a way to be successful and be a leader. Libra is like the iron hand in the velvet glove. He can charm everyone, being Gemini and Libra Rising. Cancers can be very outgoing too, but need periods to recharge.

Question: I was born on May 5th, 1995 at 1:23 am in the Bronx, NY. I’ve found out that I’m a cancer moon with an Aquarius rising. I just feel like the Taurus/Cancer is very conflicting with the Aquarius rising, wondering if you can help me understand myself better?

Answer: I'll try. It's very hard without casting a whole chart or having a Natal Birth Chart in front of me. Usually, I spend around 10 hrs interpreting. I have no clue what houses any of these planets are in, and you aren't even giving me planets for some of the zodiac signs. So next time, please give me something with the correct info to interpret. There are a plethora of astrology sites, mine is even listed on my profile page.

If you do have Aquarius rising, that puts Taurus on the cusp of your 7th house, an important one, it rules marriage and war (I always wondered about that one)! Taurus and Cancer do not conflict at all. They are earth and water, always compatible with each other. Both are kind and gentle signs, nurturing, who want to get married or at least feel secure in a relationship.

Cancer Moon rules your emotions, so they are intense and changeable in this sign. The Moon travels through the whole 12 zodiac signs in a month, so you go thru little emo changes every 2+ days. You are nurturing and loving, creative and ambitious. Cancer is a leadership sign, and people forget about that. So you do like to get your own way and others look to you for advice.

Aquarius Rising is the facade you show the world, so they see a nonconformist who is stubborn and intends to do everything their own way. You are original and intelligent. Uranus is the planet ruling Aquarius, so that's erratic and sudden change. So you change a real lot, with the Cancer and Aquarius. Taurus is the least of your worries.

Actually, Cancer and Aquarius couples are common. Since both are nonconformists, or just can't understand other people's rules, you can reconcile these parts of yourself. You have to do it your way, so life makes sense to you. It's not a big conflict, though you may surprise people with sudden changes or ideas.

But whatever planet is in Taurus is a stabilizing influence. Taurus is sensible, sensual, reliable, and can be fun. They like the good things in life, and with Cancer, will be ambitious enough to work for those things, even if they are not what others think are the "good things." The Taurus and Aquarius are called an opposition, and most of us have at least one in our charts. It's old astrology books that make them sound dire. They are no big deal. Your approach to relationships seems different than you appear to be. You just have to give yourself permission to be yourself, and I think you will be OK.

Question: I’m a Sagittarius sun, Cancer moon, Capricorn rising, and Capricorn Venus. Can you explain what this says about me?

Answer: Having a Sag Sun means you accept people for who they are, and are pretty easygoing. It's a fire sign, so you are friendly, fun, and intelligent. I know really quiet Sag people and really talkative ones. Since you have a Cancer moon, I think you would be a talkative one! Sag rules law, philosophy, and higher education, so you may be interested in any of these subjects. It also rules foreign cultures, so you may fall in love with someone from a different country, or fall in love with something about a different culture. My son has three planets in Sag and runs a school in traditional Okinawan karate; it keeps to the old ways. Also, you are very independent.

Cancer moon explains your emotional makeup. You are gentle and nurturing. You are emotional and get bored easily. You are changeable and like to travel. You care deeply about family and friends, and this is a leadership sign, so friends often seek your wise and caring counsel.

Capricorn rising is the way you appear to others. You seem reserved before you get to know people better, and the same for the Capricorn Moon. Once you are sure you want someone in your life, then you are warm and kind. But Capricorn doesn't like to waste time on people they feel aren't worth it. You are reliable and a take-charge person. I see ambition here and think you would do well beginning your own business in whatever you are good at.

Venus rules your love and social nature. Capricorn has trouble here, it's hard to break your reserve, and you don't like surprises. You are capable of love and being sensual, but in private, you don't like to show feelings in public, though your Cancer Moon can help you there. I think you will settle down with someone when you are ready, but it will be with someone who shares your goals and ambition in life.

Question: Is it pathetic to be a Cancer sun and a Cancer moon as I am?

Answer: Oh my, why would you think that's pathetic? Cancer is a cardinal sign of leadership. Cancers love people and are very independent. They are hard workers and usually think ahead and have goals. You need time alone, but also enjoy an active social life, although you do withdraw when you are upset. The Cancer Moon means your feelings get hurt easily, but you get over it. You are practical and reliable, and care a lot about your family and friends. Many people have Sun and Moon in the same sign, it's not unusual and certainly isn't pathetic.

Question: I'm a Cancer moon with Libra sun, Capricorn rising and Venus in Virgo. What does this say about me?

Answer: Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn are cardinal signs of leadership. So you know what you want and where you are going. You will stay with your plans until you achieve your desires.

The Libra Sun is like the iron hand in the velvet glove. You are ruled by Venus, but like to get your way. But you are good at getting support for your ideas and for keeping the peace with those around you. Libra is the marriage house ruler, so you want to be in a serious relationship. Libras are intelligent and fair-minded. It is the sign of justice, and you like to right the wrongs you see.

The Cancer moon is your emotional side. You are moody, but artistic and creative. Your kind nature and vivid imagination make you popular with others. Cancers are stronger than people think, though your feelings can be easily hurt. You are down to earth even though you do take flights of fancy now and then. You get bored fast and like to travel, or to get out a lot.

Capricorn rising is the way others see you. So you come off as reserved until people get to know you better. You don't let them in until you feel you can trust them. This is a sign that is good for business endeavors, and you can be a bit of a social climber, as you do have high ideals and goals you want to reach. So why not meet people who can help that? You are mature and trustworthy.

Venus is hard in Virgo; it's not the most romantic placement for Venus. You tend to be critical and are ruled by your head when it comes to love. Depend on your Cancer sense of romance more! Having a Capricorn rising puts Cancer on your 7th house cusp, so you want to be married and have kids. Plus Libras hate to be single. You will have some conflicts because while working hard to achieve all you want, you also have to take time to be a good partner, and take time for romance. This is something you will have to juggle, but I think you can do it.

Question: I am a Sagittarius Sun, with Cancer in Moon and Rising. What does this say about me, since it’s a strange combination as Sagittarius is a fire sign and Cancer is a water sign?

Answer: I don't know why you think this is a "strange combination." If you read any of the hundreds of answers I gave for astrology questions, you would have seen that EVERY ONE OF THE TEN PLANETS IN EVERY HOROSCOPE OR NATAL CHART IS IN A ZODIAC SIGN. That can be Fire, Air, Water, or Earth. I'm going to give you a link to an article that explains what real astrology is, and it has very little to do with only a Sun Sign- I say this not to insult you, but I've answered this question and ones like it every day, and people never learn. I've written hundreds of articles about astrology. Even this question was written from the bottom of Cancer Moon Sign Emotions, and did you even read it? It explained what a Cancer Moon means in total. You just skipped to the bottom, without even trying to understand THAT article, and expected me to waste 20 minutes of my time interpreting this so you didn't have to when the information was in the article.. So you probably won't read the one I am trying to get you to to so you actually learn.

The Sag Sun means you are an outgoing and easygoing sort of person. You are independent and like to go out with friends. Even if you are in a relationship, you still need freedom to pursue your interests. Sag rules education, philosophy, religion and law, so one of those may play an important part in your life. It also rules foreign travel, so you may travel often. You may fall for a person from a different country.

The Cancer Moon that was described thoroughly in the article means you are kind and gentle. You are a dreamy person and also very creative. You are the one friends come to for sympathy and when they need someone to depend on. Cancers are ambitious though, so you have goals and dreams and will go on to work towards them. You have a strong love of family and friends.

The Cancer Rising is the way you appear. In this case, it's kind and approachable, and others probably like you. They sense that you are trustworthy and that they can depend on you. So basically, you seem more Cancer, but have the Sag Sun. With Cancer rising, you have Capricorn on the 7th house, which rules marriage. So you will be drawn to a person who has goals and ambitions like you. You want to be made to feel secure in this relationship, and want a sensible partner. But they have to fun too and like social life, or the Sag in you won't like that!

Question: This Cancer woman I'm seeing broke up with me, a Scorpio. From what I have read, the Cancer woman will brood for days before opening up to talk again. I really want her back again. Should I not message her and leave her to brood? Or should I contact her and let me know how I feel?

Answer: Why don't you just message her and tell her the truth? That seems like the easiest and most simple way to solve this, especially since you care, why play games?

I don't know where you got your information. Both of you are water signs, so both are emotional, and you probably hurt each other's feelings. She is sensitive, and apparently, you hurt her. But Scorpios like revenge, and by waiting, you are being immature and hurting her more by playing head games. Is that what you want?

Astrology is a hell of a lot more than knowing sun signs. It takes me around 12 hours to cast and interpret a "real" astrology chart. People think astrology is irrelevant or stupid, but always run to astrologers when they have problems, and think revealing one sun sign means a lot. It doesn't. Billions of people are either Cancer or Scorpio.

Cancer and Scorpio is a good combination. If you want this relationship to go somewhere, message her, talk about your issues, and I think you can work it out. I am sure just telling her that you miss her will help her open up again. Flowers or another romantic gesture would help too.

Question: Can you help me with my distant Libra Virgo partner? He is Virgo Sun, Cancer Moon, Venus in Libra. Once again I am Leo sun, Aqua Moon, Venus in Virgo. I really need help to understand how I can do better to keep things stable.

Answer: I can't really tell from this Trinity what would make him distant or unstable. Virgo Sun people are witty and fun. He is serious, but also intelligent. He is talkative, a good trait for talking about your problems. Virgos do tend to be critical, like down to the position of a paper clip, so I can see where that could be annoying! The Cancer moon represents his emotions, which makes him very changeable. The Moon changes zodiac signs and goes through all 12 every 28 days (like a menstrual cycle) so is it his changes in attitude and Moon that are causing issues? He changes every 2 1/2 days. You have the Aquarius moon, and go through sudden and erratic emotional changes yourself (not that that's a bad thing), so normally Cancer/Aquarian combos get this about each other. He's emotional, kind, nurturing and family oriented. He may need time to himself, but so do you, you need a bit of freedom in a relationship. Venus rules our love nature, and in Libra, he needs to be in a partnership. He will be quiet when he wants to complain because he doesn't like to argue. He needs tranquility.

One thing I notice is Cancer and Libra are both cardinal signs of leadership. He has specific goals and ambitions, so may put work first. Or you may not agree with his decisions, though that Virgo sun will keep him from doing anything rash. But he can act like he's the one in charge, the captain of the ship, which can also be annoying.

I like that he has a Virgo Sun and you have Venus in Virgo. Having Venus there is one of the harder positions for Venus. When you look through the lens of a love life, you feel like you don't really need anyone. But it means that when you think of who or what kind of person will attract you, it's a Virgo! Now, the Virgin symbolizes Virgo. You don't really feel like you need a partner to be complete. Also, Virgos are finicky about sex, and you both have some of that sign in you. I think you can be fine; you just have to communicate more. I really think you can keep this alive.

Question: I am a Leo sun, Sag rising, Aqua moon, and Venus Virgo. I am in love with Virgo sun, Libra moon, Libra Virgo. He was the one to come and express his feelings and said he feels we are soulmates (i felt the same way since I met him). We had some very beautiful moments until he pulled back and now pretends he doesn’t even know me. Can you help me with my distant Libra Virgo partner?

Answer: Well, common sense is more important in life than astrology, so if you thought he was your soulmate and now he pretends he never knew you, I can't really help. I'm sorry, but it sounds like it's over. In my experience, once a person leaves a relationship once over a problem, it sets a precedent, and that's how it will always be. Now, soulmates often come into our lives to teach us hard lessons. Soulmates aren't always the ones who will fulfill your every need, or as Bob Dylan put it, "Be a lover for your life and nothing more."

You aren't even giving me the same planets in signs for me to compare here, so I can't interpret all this without casting a chart. What on earth is a Libra Virgo? That's two zodiac signs, but no planet or house, so there's nothing for me to interpret. But this isn't about astrology. If he's acting like this, dump him. It seems he already left you. Astrology can't be used as a scapegoat for what you want to tell yourself was a '"soulmate" experience, when it seems like it was pretty easy for him to leave. I also don't know how long you were together.

I would suggest trying to move on, hard though it may be. Leo and Virgo aren't bad, signs next to each other are often compatible. The Aquarius and Libra moons are good for communication, but apparently not in this case. Venus in Virgo is a hard placement, you are self-sufficient and critical, and may put people off without realizing it. He sounds unstable to me. There are other fish in the sea. Get your head out of the clouds and stop with the soulmate stuff, and try to be sure somebody is compatible with you and take more time to get to know them next time. I have written an article about soulmates if you are interested, it may help, I am really sorry you are hurting, you deserve better.

Question: I am always on a whim with my Moon in Cancer; I don’t love it because of the over-sensitive part, and those looking in saying it’s a weakness. Then again without it I could sense the vibrations and read others as easily as I do. I have a Leo sun, the moon in cancer, and rising in Libra! How can I get tougher in character and get a hold of my emotions?

Answer: You did a good job interpreting what you did here. I think the most strength can be found in your Leo Sun. It's a fixed sign so that you will be strong in your opinions, and not swayed to change them to keep the peace, as Libra or even sometimes Cancer would do. Leos have a presence, and though it's not intimidating like Scorpio, it does grab other people's attention! They respect you and your regal air. Also, although the Cancer Moon in your Natal Birth Chart is forever, the Moon transits through all 12 zodiac signs every 28 days or so. As it passes through stronger willed signs, you feel stronger and more opinionated. You will stand up for what you believe. Cancer is also a cardinal sign of leadership, and not a "sissy" sign. Cancers are strong, so you have hidden strengths in your emotional makeup that others may not see. Whims are not a bad thing, that's probably just the changing Cancer Moon. Also, Libra is another cardinal leadership sign. It is the sign of the balance, so when life doesn't feel right, you feel you need to put it back in balance. This is also a strong sign; it just comes off gentle because its ruled by Venus. Think of the iron hand in the velvet glove. I think you will be fine, stop worrying so much (Cancer Moon trait). You are stronger than you believe.

Question: I’m a Cancer moon, I was born on June 22, and I’m dating an Aquarius man. We are long distance, and I’m going through a lot of emotions. How do I make the best of my life other than thinking of my man?

Answer: First of all, there are many successful Cancer/Aquarius couples. But what you gave me here is a mish-mash. I have your Moon sign and his Sun Sign, but it's not really something easy to compare, it's like apples to oranges. But both of you are changeable and a little bit eccentric, hearing the beat of a different drummer. Cancer moon people like time to themselves, and Aquarius Suns like freedom in a relationship. But his ruling planet is Uranus; his changes are bigger and more erratic, so a long distance relationship can work for both of you in a way.

Cancer Moon people are independent and goal oriented, so you could concentrate on your job or career and save for the future, or perhaps take some courses towards either furthering your job goals or just for the fun of learning. Cancers get bored easily. Also, you are creative. Do you like to paint, write, or have other artistic talents? That would be a useful way to spend time between being able to see each other.

Question: I am a Moon Cancer, Sun Pisces, with a Gemini Rising. I think I was born under the Constellation of Aquarius (March 5, 1971). How do I reconcile these signs? Having two signs with duality seems difficult to do. I also have Sagittarius in my Venus and Mars planets.

Answer: Being a Sun sign Pisces does have some duality, but it's not too hard to overcome. You are a dreamer, so may have ideas which seem great at the time, but really aren't so good. Make sure you think carefully before you make expensive financial plans or get involved in dubious partnerships. You are sympathetic and could be an easy mark for unscrupulous people. On the other hand, you have psychic ability, aided by the Cancer Moon, and can read other people very well. You understand what others are going through and are a colorful storyteller. You are also very artistic and creative, so try to make use of those talents.

The Cancer Moon rules your feelings, and you want security in relationships. Not to a stifling degree though, because Gemini, Pisces, and Sagittarius are all that we call mutable signs. So what you want changes often and you get bored easily in relationships. But you love family and most likely will make friends who will be your family of choice. Cancers are loyal and kind. They have a good head for business, something you need, so use the Cancer intuition when making choices. This also gives you caution and care.

Gemini Rising is the way you appear. It is the sign of the Twins, and you could have two great loves in your life, or be in love with two people at the same time. You seem witty and are fun to be with. You are talkative and friendly, like to go out, and to try new things. This rising sign puts Sag on your marriage house. So you may meet a partner from a different culture, or from a different country. You and the partner could travel much together. Sag also rules education, law, and philosophy, so if you study those or teach these subjects, you could meet partners there. Depending on the degrees of Sag the Venus and Mars are in, they can be in the 7th or marriage house so that you will get married. I think you will marry more than once.

The duality is hard to deal with; it seems you do move on fast in life and get bored easily. We all have Free Will in Astrology though, nothing is fated or predetermined, so no matter what the circumstances, you make your own choices. Just go slow and don't rush into things without doing the research. I can't tell more without casting a whole Natal Birth chart. I can't see exactly where Venus (love and social life) or Mars (actions likely to take)are without drawing it out. You will experience much change due to having three mutable signs. Based on what I have here, all I can do is warn you to be careful, read all contracts. Don't try to have a love relationship with someone who bores you. You would do well to find someone who could ground you more. Capricorn would be a good choice. Taurus would be good as well.

Question: I am a cancer sun sign and Libra moon sign, with Virgo ascendant. What does this say about my career and marriage life?

Answer: Cancer and Libra are leadership signs, and both are ambitious, so I think as far as a career, once you know your direction, the sky's the limit. Both are good with people, and so you can do well in most endeavors. Cancer is sensible and would run a business behind the scenes, and Libra would charm all the clients! The Virgo Ascendant is also reliable and business oriented, likes details, and so you will do very well in whatever it is you decide to do. I like this combination.

It looks good for marriage as well. Cancers are kind and romantic, can read others well, and are family oriented. They accept people for who they are. They get bored easily, but change often as the Moon is their ruler. But that makes them interesting. Cancer is the sign of Motherhood, so if you don't have your own family, you will find a family of choice. The Libra Moon rules your emotions. You want to be half of a partnership, can't imagine life without it. And since Libra rules the marriage house, you don't have to worry about it. You care about fairness in life and tend to be ruled by your head when it comes to emotions.

The Virgo Ascendant is how others see you. Virgos can be too critical in a relationship. Also, its a very health oriented sign, so your partner better stay in shape or that will bug you. But I think you will have a good married life based on your trinity. There is a lot of astrology info I can't know without a chart. Also, since you have a Virgo Ascendant, you will be attracted to someone with those traits. So a sensible, reliable, intelligent and witty person will fill the bill.

Question: I’m a Scorpio Sun and Cancer Moon and Aquarius Rising with a Stellium in Capricorn and Scorpio? Do you have any thoughts?

Answer: Being a Scorpio, you are willful and strong, charming and used to getting your own way. You follow through with your plans and usually achieve your goals. You will change and transform yourself many times in your life and probably have psychic experiences.

The Cancer Moon represents your emotions, and you are sensitive and nurturing towards others. This softens the bluntness of Scorpio. You are loyal to those you care about and are popular with other people. They trust you. You are changeable because Cancer is ruled by the Moon, but it is a leading sign. Plus since Scorpio and Aquarius are fixed signs, the Cancer is helpful in making you less rigid and stubborn.

Aquarius rising means you are a nonconformist who has a humanitarian bent, and you want to make a difference in areas which are important to you. You don't judge others and are at home with all kinds of people. You work well in tech fields and have very original ideas.

I can't take time here to interpret two stelliums, I don't have a horoscope cast, so two intense concentrations of planets in houses I am not sure of wouldn't be a good interpretation anyway. If you don't have interceptions in your chart, the Capricorn planets would be in the 12 house of secrets, and would point to work in large institutions, hospitals, schools, jails, rehabs, that sort of thing. Scorpio would rule your 10th house of career, meaning you would be deadly serious about it and would be very good at what you do.

Question: I am an Aries, with Cancer Moon and Aquarius Ascendant. I am feeling a little lost at the moment. Can you offer me some clarity?

Answer: Saturn is in Scorpio right now, and that's a square aspect to your Aquarius Ascendant. It means karmic challenges are coming your way. Since both fixed signs, the natural order of your routine is going to be disturbed, so that can be why you are feeling lost. It's a transit that will be around for a while, so try to go with the flow as much as you can. If you don't meditate or exercise a lot, try to start, it will help with the stress levels that are going to rise as your day to day life as you know it is challenged. I can't tell what areas of life this will affect without a birth chart, but you'll feel it soon enough. Remember, it's karmic, and you will learn from it. You don't have to be afraid; it is likely a lot of small, annoying changes you can't control. Also, the Cancer moon may help it all happen more easily.

Being Aries with Cancer means you are ambitious and have specific goals to achieve. They are both leadership signs. Aries means you are assertive and outgoing, usually fun and well liked. The Cancer Moon rules your emotions, which are strong and intuitive. You are a changeable person. Cancer makes you intuitive and nurturing, sort of like to go your own way. The Aquarius ascendant also means you are a nonconformist and like to do things your way. But that's fine; you don't care what others think of you. You are apt to make sudden and erratic changes now and then. But why be boring when you can be original?

Question: Can you give me a basic reading? I am a Taurus Sun, Aries Rising/Ascendant, and Cancer Moon.

Answer: Taurus people are strong-willed and gentle, as the sign is ruled by Venus. You are sensible and reliable, sensual and romantic. Taurus people have a great calming effect on other people. You are understanding and well liked.

The Aries rising is the way you present yourself to other people. Aries is an outgoing, fun-loving sign. It's also a leadership sign, so you don't have any trouble telling others what to do and often are the one in control. You like to be spontaneous and always can think of things to do. You have original ideas, and are ambitious, but may not finish what you start.

The Cancer Moon rules your emotions, so you are nurturing and sensitive. You probably are very artistic and can read other people very well. This is another leadership sign, and Cancers are a lot stronger and sensible than people realize. They love home and family, but that doesn't mean you walk around with a broom in one hand and a mop in the other, or want dozens of family members hanging on you all the time. It's a misunderstood sign. You are a bit of a dreamer, but strong enough to make those dreams come true. You have a good head for business.

So all in all, the Taurus and Cancer in you mean you are gentle, kind, and well liked, changeable, but careful to take only calculated risks. The Aries is your fun side and also the one that gives you that shove to make those dreams real.

Question: I am a Gemini sun and rising with a Cancer moon. What does this say about me?

Answer: I think you are a fun and lighthearted person, with a little more seriousness coming from the Cancer Moon.

Gemini Sun means you are chatty, intelligent, and your mind is always going a mile a minute. You are interesting and know much about many topics. Communication is your thing, and a career in it would be great for you. Gemini rising is much the same, but the rising sign is how others see you, or the mask you wear in public. You are talkative and friendly. People see you as brainy. You like to be in the middle of a large group of people and know what's happening with everyone.

The Cancer moon represents your emotions. So you are sensitive, emotional, nurturing, and kind. You have a serious side you don't appear to have, so that's surprising to others. You do sort of decide who to trust and let in, as the Gemini vibe is more shallow. Cancer and Gemini means you change often, so it's hard to keep up with you.

The Cancer means family matters much to you, and you are conservative in love matters, you want security. Cancers are also outgoing, but need a break from it at times. Family and friends will feel the vibe when you want to be alone or just don't want to be bothered.

Gemini people often have nervous stomachs or are anxious in general because they never stop going, and Cancer rules the stomach. So take care of yourself and take time for yourself now and then. I see you in the hospitality industry or some kind of communications work.

Question: I'm Taurus rising, Leo sun, Cancer Moon and Venus in Virgo. I can't find on search engines a particular reading of the integration of these. Can you help me?

Answer: Let's begin with the Leo Sun. You are a warm and hospitable person. You are generous and well liked. You love to go out and party, and are fun to be around. You have a regal bearing and always try to look good.

The Cancer Moon represents your emotions. You are sweet and have a kind nature. You take care of others and change often because you get bored. But you are a romantic and can charm people quite well. I think you want to settle down and have a family some day.

Taurus rising is the way others see you. Taurus is ruled by Venus, so it's another kind and gentle sign, very sensual. You come off as very sensible and practical, which you are, but then your Leo flash and Cancer charm take over! Taurus people are honest and what you see is what you get. They don't play games and if they act interested, they are.

Venus is your love and social nature, and it's in Virgo. This is a harder placement for Venus, as Virgos are ruled by their heads, not their hearts. But the Cancer and Taurus in you has enough heart, so don't despair! You tend to be critical of lovers and expect every little thing to go your way. You are attracted to intelligent people who are good conversationalists. Put it all together, and it's a good mix, two Earth signs, a Fire sign, and a Water sign. Since all your planets are in a zodiac sign, I bet there's one in an Air sign somewhere!

Question: I am a Cancer Moon with Aquarius rising, Sagittarius Capricorn Cusp (sun), with Venus in Scorpio. My love is Scorpio sign (sun), with moon in Cancer, Venus in Capricorn, Mercury in Scorpio and Mars in Virgo. I hurt my love interest, but due to his miscommunication, which in turn hurt me. We are "friends", I still love him, but not sure if we are compatible?

Answer: Well, to begin, nobody is born on a cusp. You have to have either a Sag or Capricorn Sun. Cusps are the divisions between the twelve houses of astrology. I don't know where this fallacy began, but there is no truth to it. If you write back with your complete birthday, don't forget the year, I can see what Sun sign you are, and we can take it from there, OK. A Scorpio Sun can get along with either Sag or Capricorn, we get along with the zodiac sign next to us. Both of you have Cancer Moons, so your feelings get hurt easily. This could be a big part of the problem. You are both too touchy and won't let any slight go. Venus in Scorpio and Venus in Capricorn is good. Water and Earth are compatible. He is more passionate, and you are very emotional, but having the Venus in Capricorn, don't show it as much. You are giving me different planets for both of you too, so it's hard to compare. If you already went from being in love to being friends, I think you need to ask yourself if you are both truly interested. I find that once a couple distances themselves from each other, that's the first step towards not getting back together. If you were truly compatible, you would have found a way to work through your issues. You say you still love him. How is he acting towards you? If he's Scorpio I bet he's going to move on. I think you should do the same. It's really for the best.

Question: How long after a full moon does it effect a Cancer's emotions?

Answer: I can't say that a Full Moon affects Cancers all the time. It really depends on what zodiac sign the Full Moon is in. You may feel it a little more when the Moon is in Cancer, but generally, that's not really true. As a Cancer Sun, your moods change as the Moon changes zodiac signs every two and a half days. You should buy a Moon Sign Book or calendar so you can keep track! You are more likely to feel the Full Moon when it is in your Moon sign. I have a Cancer Sun, and when the Moon is in Cancer it doesn't affect me any more than any other sign.

Question: I have always had challenges with tapping more into my Sag nature. I feel like I am mostly a Cancer due to my Cancer moon. I am super sensitive and empathic and often wish I wasn't so easily made feel guilty and sad by others. Easily influenced by them. My Sun is in Sag and my Venus as well; I recognize that when I flirt - I am indeed witty and funny. But my inner world is rich and sensitive. How do I bring some kind of harmony between my Sun's expression and my Moon?

Answer: One thing I believe is that both Sag and Cancer are signs that don't really judge people, they accept everyone as they are, so you have that going for you. Venus also rules your social nature, not only your love nature, so again, in public interactions and out with friends, having a fire sign Venus should make it easy for you to click with others, and find topics to discuss. There are quiet Sag people and super chatty ones, so I don't know which you are.

You are correct about the Cancer Moon ruling your inner world. You are sensitive and really listen when others confide in you. But you have to find it within yourself to not let others bring you down. It isn't the Venus in Sag, that should be helpful to you. All of your planets are in a zodiac sign, so I don't know where they are, so I can tell you other sources of help that are in your natal birth chart. It's possible you have more than the Moon in Cancer. Also, being a Sag sun, most of us have a planet or two in the zodiac sign next to ours, in your case Capricorn. Being ruled by Saturn, having a major planet there would make you too serious, or more prone to sadness. I really think that is more the problem. The Cancer Moon you will always have, but planets are always moving. The Moon moves through all twelve zodiac signs in a 28 day cycle, so your Cancer Moon is changeable, and should be a little different feeling every 2 1/2 days. If you go on a site that will draw up a chart for you for free, I'm betting you have planets in Capricorn. It's not the Moon, and Venus is about a lot more than your love nature. Cheer up!

Question: I'm a Cancer Sun, Cancer Moon with an Aquarius Rising. What does that say about me?

Answer: You are a kind and gentle person who often changes, out of boredom, and because the Moon is your ruler. Cancers are strong-willed and good leaders; many think they are chained to the house and kids. That's not true. You have a good business sense and care a lot about others. You do want to settle down some day. The Aquarius rising means you appear to be a nonconformist, and also are inclined to like to shock others. Aquarius is ruled by Uranus, so you make sudden and maybe erratic changes. But the two signs have a way of going well together, and don't forget, all of your planets are in a sign and house, so that can provide some grounding energy.

Question: I’m an Aries Sun, with a Cancer Moon and Capricorn Ascendant. Can you tell mor more about my personality?

Answer: The first thing which stands out is that Aries, Cancer, and Capricorn are all leadership signs. So you have the ability to set your goals and rise to the top. You are the leader others come to for answers. You are an achiever who knows what direction you want life to go in. Having an Aries Sun means you are a glass half full kind of person. You are competitive and outgoing. You are the leader of your social group too. Aries people don't have a lot of forethought, but the Cancer and Capricorn make up for that. Aries lovers are ardent and they love to show off the person they are involved with in a relationship. You will be proud of them.

The Cancer Moon represents your emotional side. You are tender and sensitive, can read other people well, and your moods change often. You are personable and well liked, and although you prefer to lead from behind the scenes at times, tend to end up in the public eye. That's OK, as the Aries in you can handle that. You are artistic and a creative person. Family and close friends mean a great deal to you.

The Ascendant is the way others see us, sort of the mask or facade we wear. Capricorn Rising people come off as reserved, so although you are an Aries Sun, both Cancer and Capricorn are more reserved. You don't give a lot away about yourself until you feel sure you can trust others. But you are very trustworthy, and friends count on your advice. You are conservative and want to marry and have a family someday. You want your parents to approve of this match.

I see a great future for you, put all that leadership ability where it counts!

Question: My sun sign is Taurus, my moon sign is Cancer, and my rising sign is Scorpio. How does my love life look, and how do I love in romantic relationships?

Answer: Taurus sun people are very sensual and romantic. They are earthy and kind-hearted. Persistence, calmness, and security-mindedness are all Taurus traits. Your Cancer Moon means you are romantic, too, and want to find a permanent partner, like Taurus. You are nurturing, kind, charming, a bit flirty, and want to get married and have a family. Scorpio rising means you seem intimidating at first and don't like to get too involved with people until you get to know them better. Scorpios are sexy, serious, driven, intense and loyal to loved ones. So that's what I can tell from your trinity. I can't do much without a whole chart, which is what I do, but can't write disclaimers on all my writing, so have been interpreting Trinities. It leaves out so much info, so that's the best I can do. The Scorpio rising puts Taurus on your 7th house of marriage or partnerships, but I usually don't think two people of the same Sun sign can do well; I've seen very few couples make it. An Earth sign would be nice for you; it can be a Virgo or Capricorn. A Sun sign Cancer would be good, too.

Question: I am a Leo Sun, Leo Rising and a Cancer moon, what does this say about me?

Answer: Leo Sun sign people are strong and willful. You like to do things your way, an admirable trait, as long as you don't get too bossy! You are warm and outgoing, very protective of loved ones. You are artistic and creative. The Rising Sign is the way others see you or the facade you wear; we all do it. So you come off like a Leo person as well. You love a good social life, are luck, and love children, sports, and gambling on occasion. The Cancer Moon rules your feelings, and in gentle Cancer, they get hurt easily. But you are also very nurturing, emotional, can read other people very well, and are a lot more ambitious than others think you are. Cancers are very capable, although they seem and can be very gentle, they are also very strong and leaders. So you are a strong and likable person, capable of achieving your goals. I'd like to see you expand your creative abilities. Best Wishes.

Question: I'm a Cancer sun, Cancer moon with Scorpio rising. What does this say about me?

Answer: This is a water trinity, so you are emotional, nurturing, and intuitive. You are creative and psychic. Cancer people are reserved at first, but usually, are fun once you get to know them. Family and friends are really important to them, and you always make time for people. Sometimes too much time, at the expense of your own self. The Cancer Moon rules your emotions, so you want security and to find someone who you can count on in a relationship. You are serious and don't date unless you are truly interested in someone. The Scorpio rising is the way others see you at first. You come off as intimidating, or ultra-serious, and that can be off-putting to people. But once they get past that, they find you are a loyal friend and good person. Cancer is an ambitious and leadership sign, so you do have plans and goals and want to achieve them. Don't forget 7 other planets are in your chart, and I don't know anything about them!

Hi there, first of all thank you for posting such great articles on the web.

I am a Gemini sun with a leo moon and gemini venus with Taurus rising.

I really really like this guy, who is Capricorn sun with cancer moon Scorpio venus and Virgo rising. We have been real good friends for more than an year now and we have had great conversations and discussions with each other yet on many occasions we end up having heated arguments on various subjects even though we are back to normal after that. I really like him a lot and would want our relationship to take a romantic turn. Could you advise me on how i can develop better communication with him and try n make him open up more and communicate more and trust more and develop a more romantic relationship where he feels safe also what can i do within my nature to make him feel more welcomed and not make him wanna run away in the mention of love!

Hello Laura,

There really is no bad combo in astrology. You always get other aspects to even it out. Having a Pisces Sun, you accept people for who they are, and maybe they take advantage of you? You are kind and sensitive, also very creative. The Cancer Moon also means you are a leader, in your own way, and that can be different that other people's way. Cancer is symbolized by the crab, and they walk sideways. You want security in relationships, and are romantic. Cancer Moon people care about family. The Leo rising is good, it's the way others see you. Leo means you seem more outgoing and assertive than you really are. You do care about people and are a great host. I think you will get it all sorted out. The planets are always moving, even though your chart stays the same, the movement of the planets affects it. Best Wishes.

I don't know why, but Cancer men always have trouble in love relationships. It's the sign of Motherhood, but there's nothing wrong with being nurturing, women complain men aren't nurturing all the time. Capricorn rules Fatherhood, and Capricorn woman don't seem to have the same problem, although they do spend a lot of time on careers.

Hello Calista,

A Virgo Sun person is intelligent and ruled by their head. You like to read and stay up on what's happening in the world. Health is important to you and you watch your diet and exercise. The Cancer Moon rules your emotions, and you are very nurturing and kind. You are very family oriented and devoted to them. You are artistic and creative. Cancer rising is the way others see you. You are approachable and friendly, liked by others.

Hello Marija,

Having both Cancer and Capricorn, you are a little reserved and shy; it takes you a while to warm up to people. But you have good instincts and know who you can trust. You are hard working and have good business ability. The Moon in Cancer means you are loving, kind, and family oriented. The Gemini rising is the way you seem to others you just meet. So it's more light hearted than you really are, but that's good, it gives you that little push you need to get out there more. You also come across as smart and trustworthy.

Marija Talevska on January 30, 2019:

Hello, I'm a Gemini rising, sun in Capricorn and moon in Cancer. What does that say about me? :))

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on November 27, 2018:

Hello Kerrie,

It's the Capricorn reserved part of you that makes it take time for you to trust people. You don't express your emotions, you hold them in, and that hurts you. Also, Cancer Moon people are very emotional and get their feelings hurt fast. But you are loving, giving, and kind, so don't let others take advantage of you. Use that Capricorn you have and decide if you really want to spend time on people who hurt you. Capricorn Rising can cause depression, because you take things too seriously. Try to lighten up a little and watch who you spend your time with. The Sag Sun is good here, you are easy going and people who are outgoing and fun should be attracted to you. Try to find more people like that, join a club, and try to avoid people who drain you or make you depressed. Take a course, go for a walk, or join a gym. Start writing in a journal. You have Free Will in astrology, and can do whatever you want. Don't waste time on people you can't trust who try to use you. Take care of yourself. Jean

Kerrie on November 27, 2018:

Hi, I’m Capricorn rising, sun in sagg moon cancer.

This expect make me very suffer, at home, r/s and friendship.

Sometimes I dealing with trust issue. Time and time I feel very drained and depressed.

Feel like no one will understand and feel us.

Only when they have problem they come find us. But is hard for us to reject.

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on November 02, 2018:

You are correct that the Capricorn rising is what makes you appear and feel this way, as it's ruled by Saturn, the karmic planet. You are emotional, but have trouble expressing it, and people misinterpret that.

The Taurus Sun should help here. It's a warm, loving, sexy sign, and the Sun is the way you really are, the Rising sign is only the way you appear. So don't be too quick to blame all this on a rising sign, unless you possibly have a group of planets in Capricorn (entirely possible). I can't possibly cast a whole horoscope here, try a site like, or you can Google me if you want to take that step. Take care.

T.R. on November 01, 2018:

I was born May 5th 1995 around midnight in Dallas, Texas. Taurus Sun/ Cap Rising. Due to my Cap rising I believe I have a heavy influence of Saturn in my chart. I feel it affects my relationships and I tend to feel misunderstood all too often. I is difficult for me to love and be detached at the same time. I’m am extremely sensitive, yet very practical so often times I feel the need to shut down due to an overload of emotions and thoughts. I don’t see myself as cynical, only real. I would love to make meaningful connections with everyone that I meet, but it is not always easy to make connections with people because of my placement. I feel as though I should be a more open, but it is completely against my nature so I am not sure if I should.

I'm a Gemini sun, Libra moon, with a Gemini rising and Venus in Cancer. Is this good? Or what can I make out from this?

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on October 23, 2018:

Dear Angel'

A person with Aries Rising and a Cancer Moon has two what we call cardinal signs of leadership. This is a person who wants to achieve their goals, and has a lot of ambition. Aries is more aggressive about it, where Cancer likes to stay behind the scenes. But by just knowing this I can't see what of the 12 houses these planets are in, so I can't tell what areas of life are affected.

A Taurus Sun person is ruled by Venus. They are easy going and reliable, normally kind and well liked by others. They will help anyone and don't judge others. They are romantics and love things of beauty, and are also very sensual. It is a stubborn sign, but the other side of that is persistence. Taurus is a hard worker, so will work for the good things in life.

The Aries rising is the mask or facade we show to others who don't know us well. Aries comes off as assertive, but also fun and outgoing. They seem very confident, but since Aries is the 1st sign of the zodiac, they really are insecure and it's an act. They are trailblazers and often have great, new ideas.

The Cancer Moon represents emotions. This is a sensitive and nurturing person. Being a Cancer Moon with a Taurus Sun, this is a person who wants security and wants marriage and all it's benefits someday. Cancers are intuitive and a little bit moody. They need some time to themselves. But all in all it's a good combination. I see an achiever who is well liked and also can find a good balance between work and play. Best Regards.

Angel on October 23, 2018:

Thank you ma'am Jean Bakula,

Your articles help us a lot, I would like to ask what is the impact to a person if he/she has a cancer moon, Taurus sun, Aries rising in her/his birth chart? Hope you help us understand more about our situation.. Thank you a lot.. Your very inspiring person

I have also Taurus sun, Aries rising, cancer moon.. How does it affect me as a person?

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on October 16, 2018:

I can't provide a free astrology Natal Birth Chart. If you want that much info, Google me and find what real info I need and my fees. I only answer small questions here on what is a group writer's forum. I realize you don't know how much work you are asking for.

Angel on October 16, 2018:

Born May 5,1987 time of birth 4am..I'm a Taurus sun, Aries rising/ascendant,cancer moon I would like to ask what is my personality, what people sees me and why I am moody and sometimes people don't understand me. Thanks.. Hope for your answer.. Thank You..

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on September 11, 2018:

Taurus people are very faithful and conservative, and usually are lovable people who like to settle down into a stable love life. The same goes for Cancer Moon sign. You are sensitive and charming, and also independent and ambitious. But you want someone to share that with, and probably want a family of your own. Scorpio rising means you come across as independent, sexy, likable, and maybe a bit mysterious. Since you have mostly water and earth signs here, you probably have others in signs I don't know. All 10 of our planets are in a Zodiac sign. But I suspect you could do well with a Capricorn, Pisces, Virgo, or even a Cancer will understand your emotional makeup. Take care.

Shane bettes on September 10, 2018:

My sun sign is Taurus, my moon sign is Cancer and my rising sign is Scorpio. My questions are how is my love life look and how do I love in romantic relationsip?

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on September 02, 2018:

Dear October,

I can't interpret a whole horoscope here, this is a group writer's site, and my favorite topics are the metaphysical, the world where I spend most of my time! But when I first read your question, it was 108 minutes ago, and my only sibling was born on 10/8, so I feel like we were supposed to "meet." If you are interested in getting an astrological birth chart, Google my name and you will find my site and fees.

Taurus Sun people love nature and the earth. I was married to one for 34 years, and he was quite the nature boy. The first time I hiked to a lake with him, we sat on a huge rock, and he whipped off his clothes and proceeded to swim across the whole lake. I had only been seeing him for a few weeks, and wasn't quite ready for that! Being Cancer myself, I am very artistic, I write, garden, knit, read at least 3 books a week, and love to make things look beautiful, often using nature. So both of those signs contribute to the things you love to do.

Venus in Gemini is about your social and love life, although it's what drives the way you communicate, and that, obviously, is through your art to a certain extent. Mars is at home in Aries, and that means you have the drive to all these things you love, you would not be complete without doing so. All that Cancer is what makes you so emotional, but you seem to channel these emotions in a very positive way.

It's said, and in the metaphysical world I travel through, that the past, present and future are all happening at the same time. I get that "caught in weird places" kind of feeling too. Your Cancer planets very likely give you some psychic ability or at least heightened intuition.

Actually my next article is going to be about how to develop intuition and clairvoyance, so be on the lookout. Do you meditate? That's a great way to "see" how it's all put together, and makes it easier to understand what's in the future, where you are now, and what to let go. It sounds to me like you are doing a good job integrating all these different aspects of yourself. The Gemini in you makes me think writing more would be useful for you too, even if you just kept a journal. I did that when I learned to read the tarot, but when I read all the journals years later, learned a lot about my life. They were very detailed.

Cancers love so deeply, and I know how bad it hurts when our love is not returned or worse, the person betrays or doesn't return our feelings. Let your Aries anger and Gemini Venus get you out to find other fish in the sea!

I think a Scorpio person would totally understand you. It's a fixed water sign, so would get your passion, share it, and also ground you a little more. Working off intuition and emotions is not a bad thing, just be careful. Also, a person with other planets in Taurus would be good for you. I hope that helps. Take care.

Lovely Jean, hello!

I was born April 24th,1996 at 11:56 p.m. in the US.

I am/have a taurus sun, a cancer moon, and a cancer ascendant.

Two other placements I feel inclined to add, is my gemini venus, and my aries mars.

I am tremendously emotional and completely work off of my emotions.

Which is why I think I am able to connect so deeply with the earth. I have a great bond with all things nature...spending my time outside gardening, reading, or painting a canvas with the perfect cup of tea.

I also spend a lot of time daydreaming....about the past, the future, or a fantasy realm I have created in my mind. A realm I wish to live in the 3D someday.

I have many dreams...some seem so far fetched, yet right on my skin all at the same time.

I feel as though I am stretching myself between 3 different worlds all at once....stretching so much that it is hard to get anything done in any of the realms.

My question or advice I am looking for you, is how can I balance my dream/fantasy realm, with my actual physical form, and my deeply fertile emotional tendencies all at once. How can I harmonize myself into one super woman to really become something special in this body I am in now.

Oh.,... and did I mention how hard I love?? so hard that it hurts.

Another question I have..maybe an easier one to answer.

is how do my planetary placements play into all of this?

What placements really speak for me, in your opinion of course.

Sending much love to you, Jean

Please try to write these questions more clearly, I already answered you and thought your Ascendant was Scorpio because of the odd punctuation. Say "I have a Pisces Sun, Scorpio Moon, and Leo Rising." What you wrote didn't make sense and I have to correct them in order to display them on the site.

Pisces Sun people are spiritual, creative, kindhearted souls who don't judge others. You are the first one to offer help when it's needed and like to be with other people.

The Moon in Scorpio represents your emotions, and you are strong willed, passionate, courageous, and can see right through others. You can trust your feelings all the time, they won't fail you. I am glad to see the Scorpio in you, as Pisces people can be so nice they neglect themselves because they are so busy caring for everyone else.

Leo rising means you have a strong presence when people just meet you. The Leo helps brighten up your personality, since both Pisces and Scorpio are serious. You are hospitable and like to get out a lot. You spend time on your appearance and are attractive.

I'd like to see you with a person with a few planets in Earth signs. You could do well with someone who has a water sign moon, they could understand you because of your two water sign positions. Also, either a fire sign moon or air sign one would have emotions that would spark up a romance nicely. Best Regards.

Sun sign:Pisces, moon: scorpio and rising: leo. can you please tell me a bit about myself and what signs would be a good match for me (for relationship)

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on July 06, 2018:

Hello Rashmi,

Cancer and Scorpio are both intensely emotional signs. Scorpio is more stubborn and passionate, and Cancer is a more nurturing and loving kind of feeling. The Scorpio Ascendant means you are strong and those emotions can be so intense that even you have problems understanding them. You are strong and probably intimidate people less strong than you are. The Moon moves through the whole 12 zodiac signs in one month, so it goes into each sun sign for around two and half days. So there's no way for you not to be emotional. You change often. You have to learn to channel those feelings. Do you like art, music or have another artistic or creative interest? That's the best thing to do with all those emotions.

The Libra Sun is more even tempered, you like to be comfortable and to do things in partnerships, either in business or romance. Also, both Cancer and Libra are cardinal signs of leadership, so you can be successful and have a strong drive to achieve. Try to channel some of those emotions into your work, or find a new kind of job. I hope that helps. Take care.

Sun Sign: Libra, Moon : Cancer & Ascendant: Scorpio, Why I feel too much?

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on July 01, 2018:

Hello Max,

Aquarius people are intelligent and somewhat rebellious, they see the world in a way others do not. It's a fixed sign and so they are quite stubborn. They are likely to make quick or erratic changes, but are very inventive and philosophically minded.

The Cancer Moon rules his emotions, so he is kind and generous, nurturing and cares much for family. This is also a changeable sign, but the Moon passes thru all 12 zodiac signs each month, so you can probably get to a point where you pick up on his passing emotional states. He's sort of sweet natured. Capricorn Rising is the facade he puts on, we all do it. He comes off as reserved and it may seem like he doesn't want to be bothered at first. He sizes people up and decides if he wants them in his life. Both Cancer and Capricorn are leadership signs too, so he is ambitious and has plans for a financial future (dreams too with the Cancer Moon). Mercury in Aquarius rules how he thinks, and he is unique with his ideas. I have a whole article called Mercury in Aquarius Thinkers on either and (this is a group site and editors often split up my series pieces. They think you are looking for a fortune teller, but my goal was always to teach astrology and create personality profiles.) I also have a whole series on Venus with a piece on Venus in Aries Love Lives on

The Aquarius Venus needs some space in friendships and love lives, but other positions here indicate that he would be more happy in a relationship than most. He feels smothered fast. Mars in Aries is the physical things people like to do. I think he's a bit of a dare devil, loving to try new things. However, the Cancer and Capricorn will be a restraining influence because both are careful signs. I hope that helps and the Venus and Mercury articles are long and explain in detail how each sign thinks and loves, check them out. Good luck and take care.

Hi Daniel,

Cancer Moon people are very sensitive and emotional. While it's true they are usually kind and loving, your brother has a Moon, Ascendant, and seven other planets in his birth chart, and that can affect the meaning of his Cancer Moon in big ways. So can your relationship, as a sibling, your being his brother is a 3rd house matter, and I don't have a whole birth chart here. I need a birthday, time, latitude and longitude of where a person was born, and I don't do it for free or here.

To your point though, it can be that sometimes although people with Cancer planets are sensitive about the way others treat them, sometimes they get oversensitive in the way they treat others, and can be self defensive. Is that what's happening? He needs to talk things through and not hold in what's bothering him, and Cancer Moon people are notorious for that. Also, since the Moon changes signs every 2 days, he's moody. Approach with caution! But he does care about family deep down. Take care.

Max on June 29, 2018:

Hi Jean, many thanks for your articles and all insights and words of wisdom. And for all your hard work and efforts with writing all the answers. I have to say is nice to read yours stuff because they are dead on. Jean I’d like to ask you if you would be able to give me more information about personality of someone I’ve met He is Aquarius Sun, Cancer Moon, Capricorn Rising, mercury Aquarius and Venus and mars Aries. I’d be grateful if you could write what you think. Thank you very much

Daniel on June 29, 2018:

My brother is a cancer moon but I’m wondering if cancer moons are kind and loving

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on June 26, 2018:

Dear Elly,

This is hard, since he already left you I can't say he will come back by interpreting astrology. I would have to do a tarot reading or a whole birth chart.

Libras usually crave being in a partnership, and Cancer Moon people need a secure and steady relationship. The Mercury in Libra means he is intelligent and witty, and the Venus in Libra person normally is always in a partnership, it's a natural state for them. The Mars in Virgo means he is hard working and maybe works in the health industry or something to do with natural or nature things.

Both Libra and Cancer are what are called cardinal signs, so he is a leader and inclined to make sudden decisions. It's hard to say why someone would be with you for 4 years and just leave so suddenly. Libras with Cancer Moons aren't players.

He will remember you, but without knowing what caused this seemingly sudden accusation of lying and not letting you explain is tough. Was he seeming more distant and just picked a fight with you so he wouldn't feel guilty about leaving you? It's a common thing people do when they haven't been as happy in a relationship as they seem and want out. I am so sorry you were hurt. I wouldn't be able to trust someone who did that to me, so be careful about letting him back into your life. It's weird for someone to be close for 4 years and just walk away like that. Were there signs he was unhappy you didn't want to see or didn't discuss? See what happens, but my experience has taught me that someone who leaves once will always do so. Try to move on if you can. I hope you feel better. Jean

Elly on June 24, 2018:


My ex is cancer moon \ libra sun,

Mercury:Libra, Venus:Libra Mars:Virgo

We made a lot of good memories during our 4 years together, He broke up with me SUDDENLY one day and just 2 days before he told me I love you now more than before " he said I lied to him about something and he didn't let me explain, he made his mind to erase me from his life " and left me heart broken,

I don't know if he was the Player ( Libra ) or he was really in love with me and faithful as cancer moon ?

And as cancerians love the past, will he remember all our happy moments and think of getting back to me ?

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on June 19, 2018:

I looked it up, and your Moon is in Cancer.

Esmeralda Miguel on June 17, 2018:

I'm not sure if I have moon in cancer because on some birth chart calculators its says I have moon in Gemini. I try to see which best fits me but I still get confuse. I am a sagittarius born on 11/26/99 at 1:47pm

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on June 15, 2018:

You just asked this question at the bottom of the Cancer Moon Sign Emotions article I wrote. Read it. There is a link in the first paragraph you can click that will tell you your Moon sign. Then I have articles like this one to interpret every Moon sign in the Zodiac on Best wishes.

Please read the article, the answers to the questions are usually in it, unless you want further study.

Cgcita on June 15, 2018:

I was born July 17 1973. I’m almost everything you described as a Cancer woman. What is my moon sign? Never heard of that.

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on June 07, 2018:

Yes, I can look it up. Your Moon is in Cancer. Mercury rules the way you think. Yours is in Aquarius. Venus is how you act or are in social and love affairs, and that is also in Aquarius.

So you are practical and reliable with a head for business, since you are a Capricorn Sun person. But the Aquarius thinking means you are an independent thinker. You may make erratic or just sudden changes of friends or partners, as you are inclined to get bored or just restless pretty quickly. Also, a Cancer Moon person is changeable, but in 2 1/2 day cycles, every time the Moon goes into a new zodiac sign. It travels faster than any other planet, going through all 12 zodiac signs in one month. But this Moon is also nurturing and likes security, traits in common with Capricorn. Cancer Moons are nurturing and kind, and need some time alone, even though you are sociable. So I think the Aquarius in you is good, it allows you to get out of a slump or rut when it happens. Your Mercury allows you to think logically, but the Venus means you are deep emotionally, also very imaginative.

I was born on January 6 1996,at 6.05 am. I really don't know my moonsign, can you help me out?

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on May 22, 2018:

He is definitely a Scorpio sun sign. His Mercury is in Scorpio, that's how he thinks. This will explain all that: His Venus is in Libra, he's an article I wrote about that (he's romantic)

Your Mercury is in Taurus, read this, Your Venus is in Aries, check this out:

These are all articles I wrote, so it's my interpretation. Since the hurtful thing is a divorce, that is serious, a death of sorts, so cut him some slack. I think it has potential. Take care.

LaKisha Bolton on May 22, 2018:

Hi Jean! His birth year is 1975 and mine is 1977. He's divorced and so am I and although he doesn't talk about it much, I know his divorce hurt him.

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on May 21, 2018:

Hi LaKisha,

I really need his birthday year, because there really is no "cusp" birthday, everyone's Sun is in a specific sign. They take on traits that are from the sign next to them because Mercury and Venus are often in the sign before or after the Sun sign.

If he is Scorpio, I like that with your Cancer. I like the honesty of Scorpios, and the fact at least he told the truth that he was not ready for a relationship. His Moon in Cancer represents his emotional makeup, and Cancer means he is very sensitive and normally I would say someone who wants to be in a relationship. Has someone hurt him recently? Scorpios are sweet. They can be ruthless if you hurt them, but if they like you, they are loyal and will move mountains for friends, family and loved ones. I don't know why everyone thinks they are evil and sex addicts.

Taurus means you are down to earth and sensual, and he appreciates that. You are also a very kind person, gentle in your interactions with others
