Cancer Moon Sign Emotions
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, often astrologers, tarot card readers, psychics, mediums, or they can read auras and chakras.
They 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.
The Crab Symbolizes Cancer
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
I’m a Sagittarius sun, Cancer moon, Capricorn rising, and Capricorn Venus. Can you explain what this says about me?
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.
I was born on 29th may, 1998 at 6:46 p.m. I have Gemini sun, Cancer moon and ascendant Scorpio. I feel like I am going through a roller coaster of emotions and nobody truly understands me. I feel most comfortable at home but can do great in social settings too even if I don't like socializing. I feel I am here for a specific reason. Is it true or just my imagination?
I believe we are all here for a specific reason, so that rings true to me. Your Scorpio ascendant makes you seem more reserved and serious than you really are, and some may find that intimidating. Plus you are very emotional and probably to the extent you can't even figure out what's going on with your changing emotions. The Cancer Moon is also very emotional, but again, you are reserved unless with people you know well, so this can be off-putting or confusing to some. Both Cancer and Scorpio are signs which need privacy, so that's why you sometimes feel better at home than when you are out. You need to be in the mood to socialize. The Gemini Sun is your saving grace here, you are intelligent, and this is a more outgoing influence.
It can be hard for others to understand your intense emotions, but Geminis are great communicators. Friends must learn to accept you have periods when you are "on" and ones where you are "off." I am Cancer Sun/Scorpio Ascendant and feel the same way about social obligations. As I write this, I have an appointment tomorrow, and I am considering canceling because I am unsure if I feel sociable enough to go. So I get it (and have planets in Gemini too, so can be very sociable, people think I am a lot more sociable than I really am)!
So it's not your imagination. You are a good listener. You just have distinct public and private sides to your personality. People close to you can learn to live with that. Being a Scorpio Ascendant, you will eventually walk away from those who don't understand you. Why bother with them? Socialize when you feel like it.
You could be a good counselor or life coach since you listen. When you need periods of quiet time, take them and stop being guilty about it. This is just who you are; there isn't anything wrong with you. Embrace yourself for who you are--and you are creative, find outlets for that talent in your quiet times. Take care.
I am a Libra sun, Capricorn moon, Libra Venus. How will my married life be?
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.
