The Moon in Cancer
In Astrology, Moon Sign Placement
Describes Your Inner Emotional Personality
What does it mean to have the Moon in Cancer?
In Astrology, to have the Moon in Cancer means the Moon was moving through the sign of Cancer when the event described in the chart occurred. Having the Moon in Cancer colors the basic character of the person (or event) involved, and sets the tone for the inner emotional self. The Moon Sign describes one of the three major core qualities of the personality -- and influences character in addition to the person's Sun Sign qualities.
If you have the Moon in Cancer, this astrology placement describes your inner, private character, for the Moon in Astrology symbolizes your emotions, your feelings, your inner world ... and the Astrology sign containing the Moon describes the traits you will use in your private life and with family members.
In Astrology, the qualities of the Moon in Cancer will describe your private attitudes and feelings -- the ones you may not readily show "for public viewing," your background and heritage, the influence of your childhood family ... and the kind of family you will establish for yourself as an adult. It describes the way you conduct yourself at home, the kind of qualities and surroundings you need in order to feel "at home," and the way you handle your home situation ... including the way you feel (or not!) about your physical dwelling.
The Moon in Cancer will describe the reactions, habits, and emotions that influence the conduct of your private life and family relationships. It will describe your relationship with your mother ... and give information about her influence in shaping the person you have become.
Thus, in Astrology, the Moon in Cancer is an important component in describing who you are ... and who you were meant to be.

More about The Moon in Cancer
The Moon represents the emotional self, the inner self, your instincts, habits, automatic reactions and your sense of personal heritage and history. Most people feel their Moon Sign energy very strongly -- some even to the point of identifying with their Moon Sign (once they know what it is) more than with their Sun Sign.
This is a very valid feeling, in fact, for the Moon represents who a person is on the inside ... and this is where most people feel they are most strongly their real selves. Because the Moon changes signs about every two and a half days, there is no way to know for sure what your Moon sign is without having your horoscope chart done.
Cancer is a Water sign. Water signs are considered feminine, passive, reactive, receptive, introverted, and enduring. They attract experiences and "take advantage of opportunities" rather than creating circumstances independently. Though capable of acting forcefully, they often prefer to "wait and see what happens" before making any moves. In addition to Cancer, the other two water signs are Scorpio and Pisces.
Cancer is also a Cardinal Sign. The Cardinal Signs are Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn. These personalities tend to be very direct and to the point in their presentation. They are energetic, personally ambitious, impulsive and impatient.

The Moon in Cancer brings wonderful support for some astrology signs ... but represents frustration and annoyance for others. A subscription to our Premium Membership can help you learn how to work with the energy of the Moon in Cancer, whether it is a natural help or a problem for your astrology sign.
If you have the Moon in Cancer, there are certain connections with other signs that fulfill you, that make you feel complete, that help you define yourself and your life as positive and worthwhile. By expressing your Moon in Cancer qualities productively, you will create a life worth living. Living the qualities of your Moon in Cancer personality "makes you come alive emotionally."
As a "rule of thumb," Cancer is compatible with the other water signs ... Scorpio and Pisces. Cancer is compatible also with the earth signs of Taurus and Virgo. If you have your Sun in one of these signs, you have natural help and support available between two of the essential elements of your character.
Cancer is compatible with the earth sign Capricorn only if the two partners are mature enough to respect each other's differences and work to create a relationship of balance and constant mutual adjustment. If you have the Sun in this sign, there is an innate division in your character that must constantly be accommodated and rebalanced.
Cancer is less compatible with the signs of Aries and Libra, because these signs clash with one another's natural style. If you have the Sun in one of these signs, you have built in frustrations ... and conflicting priorities between your emotions and your self-identity.

What about the Moon in Cancer ... and the other signs?
Cancer and Gemini ... and Cancer and Leo ... don't have much in common and tend to get on each other's nerves. There certainly are ways they can form successful relationships, but it helps a lot if they understand each other's motives and respect each other's style.
If you have the Sun in Leo, your Moon in Cancer provides important background support for your ambitions. If you have the Sun in Gemini, your Moon in Cancer helps provide important financial support for your life's direction.
As for Cancer and Sagittarius ... and Cancer and Aquarius ... these signs also have no natural "common ground" and relationships between them require a fair bit of adjustment. But again, they can be successful associates if they let each emphasize his or her natural strengths ... and work together to compensate for the inevitable "problem areas" they will find.
If you have the Sun in Aquarius, your Moon in Cancer will provide important support for the work you do in the world. If you have the Sun in Sagittarius, your Moon in Cancer will help you work through the crises you meet in the course of your life.
