How to Understand a Cancer Moon Sign

Cancer is ruled by the moon, so a Cancer Moon Sign is doubly influential.

Cancer is ruled by the moon, so a Cancer Moon Sign is doubly influential.

What Does the Moon in Cancer Reveal?

Your Moon sign is the constellation that the Moon was in as seen from the exact time and place of your birth. There are 12 Zodiac signs, or constellations, in which the Moon can be placed. Your Moon sign is different from your Sun sign in that this placement controls your emotions, sentiment, and how you handle situations that are sensitive in nature. Other astrological aspects can influence your Moon sign, as well.

If you were to look up at the sky at the exact time and place you were born, you would be looking at a map in the sky. This map is called your birth chart or natal chart. There are 12 houses of the Zodiac, more than 10 astrological planets, and the relationships between them that determine a person’s personality, emotions, and priorities.

Those born when the Moon was in Cancer are deeply emotional but won’t show it. Cancer the crab will use their hard shell to cover up their exceptionally deep running feelings. They have the best poker face in the Zodiac. A Cancer Moon sign is also very moody. A Cancer Moon sign is extremely intuitive. The Crab is easily able to hide their own emotions, but can see yours as though you wear them on your sleeve. Because they are so sensitive, life can be quite exhausting for the Crab sometimes.

Cancer Moon Sign


Once you get a Cancer Moon sign to fall in love, he or she will love you forever. Even when the relationship doesn’t work out, a Cancer Moon sign will always carry a sentimental memory. Most of those who have a Moon in Cancer in their birth charts tend to be shy at the onset of a new relationship.

The Crab needs a home and family to feel secure. Of all the signs in the Zodiac, they make the greatest parents since nurturing comes so naturally. Their homes are the hard shells that protect their feelings. Their homes are their comfort. They enjoy a large, close knit family.
