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.

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 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?
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: https://hubpages.com/astrology/Best-Moon-Signs-For...Helpful 24
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?
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.Helpful 2

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?Helpful 1
