Cancer Moon Sign Emotions
Cancer the Crab
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 Scorpio sun, Cancer moon, and Sagittarius rising. What does that say about me?
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.Helpful 28
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 29
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'm a Virgo Sun, Cancer Moon with a Libra Rising. Is this a good placement? What do you recommend I should work on?
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.
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.
I’m an Aries Sun, with a Cancer Moon and Capricorn Ascendant. Can you tell mor more about my personality?
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!
What are your thoughts on the combination of Virgo sun, Leo moon, Scorpio rising?
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.
I'm a Cancer sun, Cancer moon with Scorpio rising. What does this say about me?
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!
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 Leo Sun, Leo Rising and a Cancer moon, what does this say about me?
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.
I'm sure you get a lot of these. My signs are literally all over the place. I'm a Taurus Sun (also on a cusp with Aries), Cancer Moon, Gemini Venus and Libra Rising. Like I feel like I'm literally an oxymoron. What does this mean about me?
Ok, well first of all, are you sure you have a Taurus Sun? I've preached, but no Sun is on the Cusp, you were born on a specific day and time, and this "cusp" business is wrong. Most of us have a planet or two in the sign next to our Sun, usually Mercury or Venus, as they are the closest to the Sun. But we'll proceed as if you are Taurus. Taurus is ruled by gentle Venus, so you are kind and helpful to others. But it's a fixed, stubborn sign too, so you are kind, but not to the point of letting people use you. Most Taurus people are sensible and reliable, great and loyal friends. You would have a good head for business, and like the finer things in life, so will work somewhat hard to get them. You enjoy good food, wine, furniture.
The Cancer Moon rules your emotions, and this is one of the more emotional signs. Plus the Moon travels through each of the twelve zodiac signs every 28 days, so you change every 2 1/2 days. It's not so scary, certain moons in a sign are better for different activities. I am a Cancer Sun myself, and learned to get a Moon sign book and how to use the moon signs to my advantage. You are nurturing and being Taurus with a Cancer Sun, want to get married or love security in important areas of your life. You are a little old fashioned, but I think that's nice! Venus rules our social and love life, and Gemini livens you up a bit. I like this with the Taurus Sun, because a Gemini Venus will talk a lot about a relationship, write poetry about it, shout it from rooftops. Taurus will be good to a lover, but not as effusive in public. You also have writing and good communication ability. You change friends and interests, not because you stop caring, you change interests.
The Libra Rising is also ruled by Venus. Libra is THE marriage and partnership sign. This means you really do crave a partner, but with what you have revealed here, I think it should be easy to attract a good one. You are down to earth and won't get BS's by anyone. This puts Aries on the cusp of your marriage house (cusps are what divide the 12 houses), so you are drawn to someone more outgoing and spontaneous than you are. You can keep up, Cancer and Gemini are both signs that like change.
Also, Cancer and Libra are cardinal signs of leadership, so once you find what it is you want to achieve, you will do it and become a leader with ease.
I hope this helps your self understanding. If you are unsure about the Taurus/Aries Sun, write back with the complete birthday, and I need the year.
I’m a Cancer moon with Libra sun, Sagittarius rising and Venus in Sagittarius as well. What does this say about me?
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 Letterpile.com.

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?
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.Helpful 10
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?
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: https://hubpages.com/astrology/Best-Moon-Signs-For... 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.Helpful 9
I'm a Scorpio sun, Cancer moon, with a Pisces rising and Venus in Libra. Is this good?
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.Helpful 7
I am a twin, and I am curious on what makes us different by being born a few minutes a part?
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!Helpful 6
I'm an Aquarius sun, Cancer moon, and Sagittarius rising. Why is dating difficult for me?
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.Helpful 5
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?
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.Helpful 4
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?
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.
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?
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 Astrology.com. Hang in there and remember, if you can't take care of yourself, you can't take care of anybody!
I'm a Cancer moon with Taurus sun, and Gemini rising, how does this affect my future decisions and personality?
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.
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?
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.
I'm a Cancer moon with Libra sun, Capricorn rising and Venus in Virgo. What does this say about me?
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.
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?
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-https://jeanbakula.wordpress.com/2015/03/01/the-tr... 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!
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?
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.
I am a Cancer moon with Sagittarius Sun and Cancer rising. What does this tell about me?
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.
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.
My son has a Cancer moon, Gemini sun and Libra rising. What does that say about him?
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.
How long after a full moon does it effect a Cancer's emotions?
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.
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?
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?
Can you give me a basic reading? I am a Taurus Sun, Aries Rising/Ascendant, and Cancer Moon.
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.
I am a cancer sun sign and Libra moon sign, with Virgo ascendant. What does this say about my career and marriage life?
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.
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.
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.
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?
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.
Is it pathetic to be a Cancer sun and a Cancer moon as I am?
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.
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?
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, https://hubpages.com/paranormal/Karmic-Partners-an... I am really sorry you are hurting, you deserve better.
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.
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.
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?
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 Cafeastrology.com, its a trustworthy site for the planetary tables.
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?
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.
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?
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.
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?
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!
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?
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!
I'm a Cancer Sun, Cancer Moon with an Aquarius Rising. What does that say about me?
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.
I’m a Scorpio Sun and Cancer Moon and Aquarius Rising with a Stellium in Capricorn and Scorpio? Do you have any thoughts?
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.
I am a Gemini sun and rising with a Cancer moon. What does this say about me?
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.
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?
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.
I am a Cancer sun sign, Cancer ascendant and Cancer mercury and Cancer venus with Neptune in Scorpio. My Sun and Venus are in the twelfth house. Does this indicate any psychic or mediumship ability?
Yes, having so many Cancer placements can make you very intuitive. Do you ever have any psychic experiences, or know something will happen before it does? Do you have dreams which really happen in life? The twelfth house is the natural Pisces house, the other water sign. I have an article about developing psychic energies, maybe that can help you. It's https://hubpages.com/paranormal/How-To-Develop-Int...
Having the Sun in Cancer, family and home life is very important to you. The Cancer ascendant means you seem the way you are, or what others see is what they get! Mercury rules the way you think, so you let emotions rule your opinions and thoughts, so be careful there. Also, people with Venus in Cancer can be too sensitive and get their feelings hurt very easily. Cancer is a cardinal sign of leadership, so be assertive and talk to others about what bothers you before it festers. And also, be aware of how what you say affects others as well. The Sun and Venus in the twelfth could mean a few disappointments in love, but maybe not, as I don't have the whole chart and can't see the planetary aspects.
I'm a Cancer Moon, Virgo Sun, and Cancer Rising. I find it interesting that 2/3 of me responds to emotional situations with extreme empathy and sensitivity, while the other 1/3 is very rational and almost robot-like. With that comes with a lot of mood unpredictability. What would you recommend to keep those balanced and prevent moodiness?
Well, first of all, you did a great job answering part of your own question. Two-thirds of your trinity is in Cancer, a sign of extreme empathy and sensitivity. Your Virgo sun is very rational, Captain Spock in Star Trek was portrayed as a Virgo, as the planet Vulcan is believed to be out there somewhere, and to be the ruler of Virgo. But this is your rational and intelligent part. It's a good combination, and don't forget the other planets are all in a zodiac sign too--I just can't accommodate that length of time for interpretations here.
Being a Cancer sun myself, this is what I did when I began learning astrology. The ruler of Cancer is the Moon, and it moves fast, through all 12 zodiac signs in 28 days, give or take. So it changes moods and attitudes for periods of 2 and a half days. Llewellyn publishes a great Moon Sign book, and also a calendar, which tells you exactly when the Moon changes signs. It also tells you when to do what things, as in what works well when the Moon is in each zodiac sign. I recommend the Moon Book, it figures out all the time zones and has a plethora of info about the Moon which will help you. When the Moon is in Cancer it's probably your most emotional time, so visit family, help someone who needs it, cook a meal for a sick person. When the Moon is in Capricorn, balance your checkbook, do sensible things. I recommend this book often (no, I'm not on Llewellyn's payroll)! I also wrote an article regarding Moon signs, but I couldn't continue with info as to all the changes. Here's the URL:
I'm a Gemini Sun, Cancer Moon, I don't know my rising sign, and Taurus Venus. What does this mean?
Well, it means you need a whole Natal Birth chart for me to give you good interpretation of your personality. But let's see what we can do.
The Gemini Sun means you are a good communicator, intelligent, fun, witty, and have a somewhat nervous temperament. Since you also have a Cancer Moon, your nerves affect your stomach. Geminis think about many subjects at once, and its hard for you to turn that busy mind off. You get bored easily.
The Cancer Moon rules your emotions. Your feelings are intense and can get hurt easily. But you are kind and nurturing, and probably well liked. Cancers are friendly and artistic, and usually are leaders and nonconformists. You need some "alone time." You change your feelings often and care much about family and close friends.
Venus in Taurus is a sensual and romantic Venus. Venus rules love and social life. You may love nature or gardening, and like the good things in life, but security is important to you. You will want a good job to find money for those nice things! I have written full articles about all three of these positions which you can Google.
I have an Aries stellium, Mercury, Sun, and Mars. I have a Cancer moon, Libra rising, and Taurus Venus. I feel conflicted sometimes and misunderstood, but balanced at the same time. Why do you think that is?
The Aries Stellium, Cancer moon, and Libra rising are three out of the four cardinal and leadership signs, so they form a T square to each other. This means that this combo causes challenges, although it also makes life more exciting. Depending on what planets are in these signs or Capricorn, this can activate your conflicts even more.
If Libra is rising, the Aries Stellium should be in your seventh or partnership house. You want to be in a partnership, think about it often, and with Mars there, put a lot of energy in your personal or serious relationships. Aries can make you too bossy and can make you want your way in a partnership, so that's something you want to watch out for. This all opposes the Libra rising. You seem or have a facade with this Libra ascendant of someone who is gentle and will even be quiet about your feelings to avoid an argument, so that's part of the conflict you feel in your partnerships. Throw in the Cancer moon, and you are very emotional and care deeply about those in your life, so it's confusing for sure. You want the relationship, but want to call the shots. But if the person argues or tells you this, your Cancer feelings get hurt! This is all complicated.
Yet oppositions can also be balancing since Aries and Libra are directly across from each other in the zodiac. Depending on the planets in Leo or Sag, you will feel more balanced at certain times. This is what's going on.
The Venus in Taurus is a nice, calming port in a storm in this complicated Aries, Cancer, Libra combo. It means you are romantic and sensitive in love and helps tone down some of that Aries "My way or the highway" vibe. Even Cancers can be manipulative. With a Taurus Venus, in love and social life, what you see is what you get. So you aren't going crazy, it makes astrological sense. I hope that's some small comfort. Probably the Cancer moon makes you feel misunderstood because your emotions are so deep and sincere. You may not show that to others so much, but it's nice with the Taurus in you.
Planets like Mercury and Venus tend to be in Aries in early Spring, so that would activate the Aries stellium and in early Fall, the Libra influences will kick in. Watch out for the Winter Solstice, when the Sun goes into Capricorn, adding yet another cardinal sign to this. But you are also very ambitious and goal oriented and will accomplish what you set out to do. Just watch it when planets are in those cardinal signs, this is what activates the conflict in you or the oppositions that can calm you.
I have a Taurus sun, Cancer moon, and a Taurus rising. Life is very hard because I feel so deeply. Do you have any suggestions on how to cope with feeling so deeply because of my astrological signs?
The Cancer moon is the most emotional part of you. It's a very sensitive and nurturing vibe, often causing you to take on other people's pain. But you are also very artistic and psychic and know you can trust your intuition. Cancer is a strong sign, so although you are strong, you feel strong emotions.
I think the Taurus sun and rising signs should help ground you, as Taurus is an Earth sign. But it is ruled by gentle Venus, so once again, you are sensitive and caring. Pragmatism and reliability come with being a Taurus, so you won't show your emotions so outwardly. Taurus is more action-oriented. When you feel overwhelmed, think of what you can actually do to help. Get out of the house or run an errand that maybe can make you feel better. Although Taurus people are tender, they like to do practical things to aid a situation, so I believe this is your saving grace. In love, you are very fragile. I was married to a Taurus man who used to cry when I was in pain. That was worse for me than feeling the pain. But he would think of sensible things to do to help the situation and make it better. Also, Taurus people have a good sense of humor, and often that helps to lighten the mood.
The Taurus rising is how others see you, so being Taurus, it's sort of what you see is what you get. Just keep doing practical things when you are experiencing these deep feelings, it's the best way to cope. Act, don't sit around and worry so much.
I have been feeling off today and I am really moody and sad. This started yesterday. I was born on the 3rd of July 2000. How and why does the zodiac symbol affect me?
I can't really answer this without casting a chart and this is a public forum. You are a Sun sign Cancer person, so you are moody and changeable, also very sensitive. You could also have other planets in Cancer. Since you only have been feeling this sad for a day or two, it probably has to do with the Moon's movement.
The Moon moves through all 12 zodiac signs in 28 days, being in each sign for around 2 or 2 1/2 days. The good part of this is that the moods can quickly pass as they move in more favorable signs than Cancer. Earth signs probably make you feel grounded. Most Cancers are strong people who bounce back fast, and I think you will too. There are good Moon Sign Books and calendars by Llewellyn which chart the Moon signs for you, and tell you what is best to do on certain days of the month. It could benefit you to learn about that. I am also a Sun Cancer and live pretty much by the Moon cycles. It really helps. I hope you feel better soon. I wrote an article about this, maybe it will help:
I am a Leo sun (8th house), Libra moon in Pisces house, Venus in Cancer. I'm very quiet and rely on heavy amounts of seclusion or time away. I feel the urge to defend myself, but also the massive urge to be incredibly passive. I find it hard to let others in and find it easier to cut people out. I would like to change my ways and know I have processes to go through, but I feel a major disconnect from my head and heart. What can I do?
Your Libra Moon is in the sign of the balance. Libra doesn't like to make waves, so even if you have a big disagreement with someone, you may not say anything about it. This is intensified by the fact it's in the 12th house, ruled by Pisces. You are secretive too, and kind, you don't want to really hurt anyone's feelings. This is what gives you the urge to protect yourself and distance yourself from others. The Moon rules your emotions, but in Libra, you are ruled more by your head than your heart. This doesn't have to be a disadvantage though, so try not to make it one.
Venus in Cancer goes two ways, normally they are very sensitive about what others say about or to them, but aren't so careful about how much they insult others. So they can dish it out, but can't take it. An example of this would be Donald Trump, a classic Venus in Cancer, who says what he wants, but holds a grudge over what others say regarding him. For you, maybe you are passive and don't speak out when your feelings are hurt, but you will stew about it.
I think the Leo Sun is the best avenue to express the outgoing part of you, it is there. The 8th house rules finances of the partner, but also death and sex. It's a house of research, being the natural Scorpio house, so if you have expertise or know a lot about certain topics, this can be your saving grace. Talk about what you know the best. Or read what's trending, so you have topics of conversation ready when you go out. Leos are friendly and generous. You are a good host, throw a party! Even the Venus in Cancer can make you a good listener, and people love that, if you like to stay in the background more. But there are factors here you can bring out more.
I’m a Cancer Moon, Aries Sun, and Rising Aquarius. Can you kind of put that into perspective?
Aries sun people are assertive and leaders in the group. You have a lot of good ideas and probably are the most fun one. You get bored fast, but like to keep busy, so it doesn't hurt you. The Cancer Moon is also assertive, though people think it's not. You are emotionally sensitive and nurturing, which may not be apparent to those who just see the Aries part of you. Your feelings get hurt easily, but you don't carry a grudge as Cancers sometimes do, because of the Aries in you. You are a lot stronger emotionally than people think and are very resilient.
Aquarius Rising is the mask or facade you show to the world. You are a caring and humanitarian person who gets involved in causes you care about. Since Uranus rules Aquarius, you are apt to make sudden changes that nobody expects. Also, Cancer is changeable too, so you won't ever be boring! Appearing Aquarius means you seem to run hot and cold and may not seem approachable to others until they get to know you better. And with the Cancer Moon, you do need solitude sometimes.
So you are a hard to read and a hard to get to know kind of person. Once you let others in, you are caring and do a lot for other people. You change all the time, but are the life of the party, and it's not a bad trinity.
I’m a Libra sun cancer moon and Gemini rising what does this say about me?
Both Cancer and Libra are cardinal signs. This means although you are ruled by loving Venus and the security loving, emotional Moon, you are assertive and strong, and prefer to get your own way. You are ambitious and have plans about where you want to go. Now, Libra people change their minds often, and Cancer Moon people their emotions, so what those plans are can be flexible and you may try many careers and life plans, not just one. Libras have trouble making decisions because you look at each issue from every side, in an effort to be fair. The Gemini in you also cares a lot about fairness.
Libra is an air sign, and you like people, can charm them, and are intelligent. You want to be in a marriage or partnership, and even to work in one. You can act like a team player, but you really are the "power behind the scenes" type! Or even in front, Cancer influences tend to bring people in the public eye. The Cancer Moon rules your tender emotions, and they do get hurt more easily than you let on. But you are kind and nurturing. People trust you and probably confide in you. Cancer is so changeable because the Moon travels through all twelve zodiac signs each 28 days or so. Security is important to you, also more than you show.
Gemini rising is the way others see you. It's also an intellectual sign of air, and you like to learn a little bit about everything. You are outgoing and fun. I think you have a good sense of humor, and also of responsibility. Gemini rising puts Sag on your marriage or relationship house, and so you may be attracted to people who are independent, love travel, and are intellects or involved in the law or education. I hope you find this mini interpretation helpful.
I'm a Cancer moon and my spouse is a Gemini in Mercury, what's that mean for us?
This is hard to interpret in any meaningful way because you are cherry-picking your Moon sign and his Mercury sign. He has Mercury in Gemini, not Gemini in Mercury. Every planet is in a zodiac sign in every person's chart.
Cancer is an emotional sign but is ruled by the Moon, so you do have positive feelings. They change often. But you are also nurturing, kind, a good listener, romantic, and generally like being in a partnership. Mercury rules the way people think. His in Gemini means he thinks fast, about a lot of topics at one time. It's hard to keep up with him mentally, and he may view romance through an intellectual lens. I don't know where your Mercury is, but writing articles about Mercury in all the zodiac signs on Exemplore.com, and there is a link on all of them where you can find out. It's the same link on all of them, so it's doesn't matter if you get to the right article the first time.
Cancer planets do cause a person to hold things in, and maybe let out so much at once when it all gets overwhelming, it can leave the other person stunned (I have 3 planets in Cancer, and my husband used to beg me to not hold things in and then discuss years worth of issues at once)! So I do get it. I am going to guess you have more than the Moon in Cancer. If you can speak up more often about how you feel, and he can be a bit more understanding, that would help. But this really isn't much for me to compare, and it's like apples to oranges. Try looking up your Mercury sign and his Moon sign, so you can compare the same planets you each have to each other. All my Moon Sign Emotions articles have the same kind of Moon link. Find his Moon, your Mercury, and read the articles. You will find out a lot.
I am an Aries Sun, Cancer Moon, with Libra rising. What does my astrological chart mean about me?
This is called your Trinity. All of these three signs are cardinal, outgoing, and leadership signs, so you like to be in control. Aries people are impulsive and fun, usually have original ideas, and like to get their way. You can be a little immature at times, and get bored fast. The Cancer Moon rules your feelings, and you are emotional, nurturing, and good at reading other people. Libra Rising is the way others see you, so you are sort of like the iron hand in the velvet glove. You want to be in charge, but act like a team player. You are not a team player, you want to tell the team what to do. Libra rising puts the Sun in your 7th house, the marriage or partnership house, so you are attracted to outgoing, fearless leader types like yourself. You are someone who could work with a love partner as well. I don't think you will have any trouble achieving your goals!
I have a Sag Sun, Cancer Moon, Scorpio rising is my Trinity. I have such a hard time emotionally in relationships. As much as I want love, I am as well, I’m such a feeler it’s all too much and I seem to wake up with multiple thoughts. I’m getting skeptical as I feel information uploads and downloads in my psyche every second. How can my astrological makeup help me to control my emotions?
The Cancer Sun and Scorpio Rising are both emotional water signs. So the passion and intensity of Scorpio, coupled with the need for security and romantic and nurturing attitude of the Cancer Moon do cause you to feel very deeply. There is some relief with having a Sag Sun, as it's a fire sign and independent, like Scorpio, but you should have varied interests which allow you to escape worry about relationships at least part of the time. Also, seven other planets are in zodiac signs, so you could have other Cancer planets or Scorpio ones, contributing more to emotional drama. Information downloads sound more Gemini to me, I wonder if your Mercury or Venus could be there. Planets in Gemini do cause info overload. Either way, I do think there is hope.
Scorpio Rising is the way people view you, at first when they are just forming an opinion of you, but later, it's still a big part of who you are. Scorpios don't waste time on people who aren't worth it, so this ascendant can also be a way to screen out people who make you feel over-emotional in relationships and aren't worth the drama.
I am a Sagittarius sun, Capricorn rising, and an Aquarius moon. My 7th house is in Cancer, and I also have Scorpio in Venus. What does my astrological chart say about me when looked at as a combination?
As a Sagittarius Sun person, you are sunny, optimistic, and fun loving. You are independent and don't judge others. You probably like the outdoors and have pets. Ruled by Jupiter, you are lucky. You have a big heart and are popular. Capricorn Rising is the way others see you, so you seem a little reserved at first, and take time deciding how involved you want to be with certain people.
The Aquarius Moon rules your emotions, and it's an intellectual sign. So you will be attracted and feel secure around people who share your views. You will be attracted to people by their intellect. You are a nonconformist and require some freedom in a relationship, you don't want to be tied down too tightly. But then the Venus in Scorpio means you are a tad jealous and intense in love, so want to keep tabs on a lover. This can still work, as Sag and Aquarius are both signs that allow you to discuss matters over because you want communication to be good. Also, having Cancer in the 7th house of marriage means you do want security and to find the right person, so does that Capricorn Rising. So it's a balance, but not one that seems all that hard to work out. You need someone who doesn't smother you and need to allow them the same. I think you will be fine and can do it.
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?
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.
I'm a Cancer moon, Capricorn ascendant & Libra sun. I've found difficulty balancing my emotions & boundaries since a lot of my planets are in Scorpio so I obsess over emotions. How can balance or release all of this energy?
Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn are all cardinal signs of leadership. If you don't have a good career or job, that's the outlet you need, it's not the Scorpio planets causing you to have difficulty, although it is causing you to obsess about it all. You need to set goals once you figure out what you want to achieve. You have the ability to do that with three leadership signs. Scorpios are great at getting their own way too. I really think work or another way to find a leadership position of some sort is the answer to balancing all these energies. You need to act more, obsess less. Scorpios are great leaders too, and trusted friends. You just haven't found your area of interest or focus yet. Once you do, it will all fall in place.
I am a sun in sagittarius, moon in cancer and venus in libra. How is the personality with these combinations?
Sun in Sag people are chatty or very quiet, so with the Cancer Moon I will go with chatty. You are generally easy going and accept people as they are. Cancer and Libra are leadership signs, so you are ambitious and have goals in life. The Moon in Cancer rules emotions, and yours are gentle, your feelings get hurt easily. But you are kind and intuitive, sensible and a good and trusted friend. Family and close friends mean a lot to you.
Venus in Libra is right at home, Libra rules the marriage and relationship house, and so you want that. You probably like to work in partnerships as well. You don't like to argue, but do like to get your way. Make sure you don't hold it all in until you explode on people, try to talk out what bothers you as it happens. In general you are peaceful and sociable, but when life is serious, you want to get your way. I hope that helps.
I'm a Cancer moon with Leo sun, Aries rising and venüs in Virgo. What does this say about me?
It says quite a bit about you. Leos are warm and generous, but also tend to be bossy. You expect to be treated like royalty, although being kind and having the nurturing Cancer Moon, that softens your Leo traits when they get overbearing. You love people and like to entertain, and your home is likely lovely, Leos decorate well and the Cancer Moon means the home is your refuge.
The Cancer Moon rules your emotional side, so you change often, because the Moon changes zodiac signs every two and a half days. They are small changes though, not dramatic, though your Leo Sun is dramatic. If you follow a Moon Sign calendar it could help you see what happens in your life when the Moon travels through each sign. Family and close friends matter a lot to you. You are caring and do go out of your way to see that others in your life are happy.
Aries Rising is the way others see you. Aries is the first zodiac sign, and you can be a bit immature at times. But Aries is fun and likes attention, also has a lot of original ideas and is generally the leader of the group. You are sunny and warm. Both Aries and Cancer are cardinal signs of leadership, so you have goals and dreams and do work on plans to achieve them. You are ambitious. Having Aries rising means you have Libra on the cusp of your marriage house, so you do want to be half of a couple. You also would do well in a business begun with a partner, you are capable of running your own business.
Virgo is a hard placement for Venus, as it's the sign of the Virgin. Not literally, but you can be picky about partners and critical when you do decide to see more of someone. You may not enjoy your sensual side as much as you could, but Virgo is an Earth sign and you may have good aspects to it, so I would need more info. You worry about the health and well being of your friends and family. I hope this helps you understand your trinity a little better.
I'm a Cancer Moon, with a Sagittarius Sun, and Virgo rising. I oftentimes get chided for 'overthinking' is this normal. What are normal things I have to learn to overcome in my sign placements?
OK, these are not "your sign placements." It's a very small part of an astrology chart you found on another site which gave you the Sun, Moon and Rising sign, or Trinity of your Chart. You are probably accused of overthinking because of the Virgo ascendant, as this is the way others see you. Virgo seems brainy and often is intelligent. You are ruled by your head and do tend to overthink things. This is not necessarily a bad thing; it's good to look at issues from all sides. But you can think about things so long that it keeps you from doing them, and then it hurts you. You tend to be critical. You are careful about your health and take good care of yourself.
The Cancer Moon represents the emotional side of you. It's very kind and nurturing. You are stronger than others think, and care a lot about family and friends. This is a leadership sign, but you like to do that work behind the scenes. Cancers are sensitive and creative. The change often because they are ruled by the Moon.
The Sagittarius Sun can work two ways. There are very talkative Sag people, and very quiet ones. Since you have some Cancer and Virgo in you, I think you are the "chatty" type. But you like a lot of freedom and have strong opinions. You get along well with others and don't judge them. Most Sag people are very easy going and are smart; they love to travel and to learn.
So I would advice against being over emotional or sensitive with the Cancer Moon. And try not to be so critical with the Virgo rising, don't dawdle over those decisions, get working on the actual issues. Also, every planet of the 10 is in a zodiac sign and one of 12 houses. Also, all your planets in the chart make important aspects. So this is a very small part of your astrological profile.
Why would the Cancer traits outshine the Virgo since it applies to 2 signs?
All three parts of your trinity--Sun, Moon, and rising sign are equal. But maybe you have other planets in Virgo. Houses 1, 4, 7, and 10 are more important houses, so planets in there are more powerful. Virgo is on the ascendant, the first house cusp. It could also be the other way around, and you have one or more planets in Cancer too. Those are the two main reasons. Then the aspects are the distances between planets, and you might have many aspects to the Cancer Moon. These would be the main reasons. Look on a site called Cafeastrology, or some sites will draw out a chart for you if you know your time of birth within two hours, the Month, Day, and Year, and the City and State or Country you were born. You need the latitude and longitude of your birthplace to cast a chart. Best Wishes.
I’m Capricorn Sun, Leo Moon, dating and falling for an Aquarius Sun and Cancer Moon. We are strongly attracted to each other. Why?
The law of attraction of opposites is working on both of you. Capricorn Sun/Cancer Moon are opposites, and Leo Moon/Aquarius Sun are opposites, even though it's taking both Sun and Moon into consideration. It's a powerful magnetism and sexual attraction.
You have the Capricorn Sun, so are a leader, very organized, somewhat conservative. You like to plan for the future, and need security. The Leo Moon is how you feel, and you want a lot of attention, being a bit high maintenance. But you are warm hearted and generous, also outgoing and fun.
The Aquarius Sun changes on a whim, and is a nonconformist. But it's a good communication sign, and a person who feels strongly about the cause of the moment. Capricorn can respect that. The Cancer Moon means they also crave security in a relationship. Cancers are strong willed, but also are artistic and creative. They can add a lot to your dreams of the future and help to make them more exciting. Cancer is changeable too, but not so much as Aquarius, so this person will never be boring. I think there's enough there to keep a relationship going, or at least to have one that teaches you both a lot about each other and life. Best Wishes.
I'm a cancer sun, Sagittarius moon, and Aries rising. Can you interpret what all these are supposed to entail for me?
Cancer Sun people are fun when they want to be, and quiet when they want to be. Since Cancer is ruled by the Moon, you change often, but this can be charming and you aren't ever boring. You are strong and have goals you want to achieve, are artistic, and generally well-liked. You are a romantic. The Sag Moon rules your emotional makeup, so you are independent and need a little freedom, but this is necessary for your Cancer Sun anyway, sometimes you want to be alone. The Aries rising is a cardinal leadership sign as Cancer is, so you are ambitious and won't fall for anyone who is shiftless or has no plans. But Aries rising means people see you as original and the life of the party when you are in the mood. Aries and Sag are both Fire signs, so I think you are more outgoing than people think you are. Aries are always the ones who are competitive and the first to try the new restaurant, or club, anything different.
I don't consider astrology fortune telling, that's an old-fashioned idea and is only believed in India in our times. Astrology is at best a personality profile (when you have a whole Natal Chart done) and a psychological profile. It can predict the challenges in your life and how you may react to them.
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?
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.
I'm a Cancer Moon with a Gemini Sun, Taurus rising, and Gemini Venus. Everyone seems to believe I am tougher than most, so I do not need reassuring or security in relationships, even if I explain that is the #1 thing I need. Also, people tend to assume I don't need a shoulder or a hug when I'm down or having issues or even if I've had a tragic life experience of some sort. So, I end up going through it all alone but there for everyone else. Is there an astrological explanation for why people think I need no support?
I'm sorry to hear that you could use some more support and aren't getting it. The Taurus Rising is one reason why you seem very self-sufficient, and very capable. I also have Gemini Venus, and lately, I have been going through a lot of difficult issues. I have one friend who always says, "You say things are going so badly, but you always look great!" I mean, just because I put on some makeup and make a few jokes doesn't mean life is a piece of cake. But I suspect you are doing the same with your Venus in Gemini. It's a lighthearted kind of energy and makes people seem both younger, and not always as if life is so hard. Plus Cancer Moon people often hide their feelings, being very reserved. The Gemini Sun also makes you come off as less serious than you are.
But all 10 planets (we count Sun and Moon in that) are in zodiac signs, and the planetary aspects, plus the houses they are all that matter in a person's astrology chart too. Because of this Q&A feature, most people give me their trinity (Sun, Moon, Ascendant), and that's such a small part of a whole astrology chart. So there can be many other factors, probably in stronger astrology signs and planetary aspects which make you appear more self-sufficient and under control, but I can't tell from this much information. To do that I would need to interpret a whole chart.
I'm a Sagittarius Sun, Cancer Moon, Aquarius Ascendant and Venus in Capricorn. What does this all say about me?
I can tell you what these four planets in these signs mean, but I have no clue what houses they are in or what aspects they make to other planets. People have to understand that questions like this are not astrology charts, they are a few small cherry-picked things I am asked. I am an astrologer used to working with complete Natal Birth charts for a fee for my time, and this what is called the Trinity, with an extra planet thrown in, I don't know why. I tell everyone over and over, but I don't know if they think they are getting a free chart, or don't bother to read the articles I wrote for all of these positions you are asking about. You wrote this from the bottom of the Cancer Moon Sign Emotions article, so if you read it, you should know what it means. The same for the Sag sun, and I have a Venus in Capricorn article too, on Letterpile.com. I also have one on Ascendants on Exemplore.com. Read them all and put that info together in your head, and that's the answer to your question. But it doesn't tell me anything about what areas of your life any of it affects, the timing, or much of anything else.
A Sag Sun means you are easy going and optimistic. You probably like the outdoors and are friendly. The Cancer Moon means you are moody and is about what makes you feel secure or insecure, but I can't tell about what, I don't have data for the chart. You are sensitive and caring towards others, and have friends from when you were young. The Aquarius Ascendant means you seem like a nonconformist, and like to act different or at least have a set of your own rules about life. Venus in Capricorn along with the Cancer Moon means you are more conservative than you appear, and probably want to get married and have kids one day. You are reserved and don't give away your feelings too easily.
I don't like to lecture. It's just that people are deluging me with these questions about their Trinity, so many a day, and without a chart, I can't see a picture to tell me what areas of your life any of this effect or how I can advise you. I believe people think they are getting more than they are, and it takes me away from my own business. It's a group writer's site, and this is a requirement of it, but only as far as the questions are regarding the article itself, it's not for free astrology readings.
My Sun is in Aries, my moon and rising sign is in Cancer when reading my horoscope which sign should I read or should I be reading both?
If you are asking about your horoscope in a magazine, read the Sun sign and Rising Sign. Combine the two and you may get something a little bit accurate. But what you have here, the Trinity, is a small part of the story. Nobody wants to get a whole Natal Birth Chart done, and there's only a little I can tell with this. Astrology is a lot more than a person's Trinity.
Aries and Cancer are both cardinal signs of leadership. So you know who you are and what you want. You are ambitious and have goals. Aries people are the pioneers, you love to try new things and go to new places. You like to be first and are competitive. You are ardent in love and demand a lot of attention, and being part Cancer too, are probably high maintenance.
The Moon in Cancer rules your emotions, so you are kind and gentle. You are sensitive and take what other people say seriously. You want security in love and want a family. But Cancers are strong willed and like to get their own way. They are dreamy and artistic, also very loving and romantic. You want a lover who makes you feel safe, who you feel comfortable with and can count on. But you will give the same. Since Cancer is ruled by the Moon, you change a lot, but that's part of the Cancer charm. You are sensual.
The rising sign is the way you seem. So it's similar to the Moon sign. You seem approachable and are well liked. People feel safe with you and you are reserved with people unless you know them well. You have a good sense of humor and see life in your own way. You have a few quirks that others like about you. You have an expressive face and also can express yourself well. You like to be in charge.
I am an Aries sun, Cancer rising, Leo moon. What does this say about me?
Aries Sun people are very original, and like to be the leaders in the group. It's an ambitious sign, and you may not want to carry your ideas through, but the Cancer and Leo in you will aid that. Cancer is also a leadership sign, and so I think you have goals and ambitions you want to achieve, and have a great chance of doing so. Cancer rising is the way others see you. You are kind, nurturing, changeable, and seem reserved until you get to know people better. But once you do, you are fun and can surprise people. You are good at reading people. The Leo Moon rules your emotions. You are a loyal, romantic partner and want to be treated with lots of attention. You want a partner who looks good who you can be proud to be seen with. But you are generous and gracious, a good host, and love to go out and to entertain. I can see you owning or running your own business. You have the drive, and that Leo charm too! You can be bossy and are very independent. Woe to the person who tries to tie you down or tell you what to do! I think you are romantic and will find a partner, as long as they fit in with your life plans.
Do I provide astrology charts for people who cut and paste all the astrology signs from each of their planets from another site?
No. That isn't even the correct information necessary to cast a horoscope. It's one component of many. It takes about 10 hours of work to cast and interpret an astrology chart, and I have to charge for that. My work is not computerized; the interpretation comes from me. I have a home business specializing in Astrology charts and Tarot readings, and there wouldn't be enough hours in the day. I also do a lot of freelance writing. I don't mind answering simple questions, such as comparing Sun, Moon and Ascendant positions, or a few planets. But it's insulting when people persist in cutting and pasting the wrong info and expect me to do all that work for them out of the kindness of my heart. I doubt they would do that for anyone. I can be found on Google for paying customers.
