Moon in Cancer...
Caring and sensitive, the Cancer moon
is sensitive and delicate yet strong.
A self-protective nature describes the essence of the moon in Cancer, but it's an understatement. Cancer is the most cautious sign when it comes to emotions and the feelings involved in human interactions. It is also ruled by the moon which feeds a person's deepest emotional needs, especially security needs. Together, the moon in the sign of Cancer makes an extremely emotionally cautious combination. This caution is a type of strength in that it protects the chart holder.
However, it is also a delicate and sensitive combination, and no matter how hard a moon in Cancer person tries to protect themselves, there will be times when they do get hurt. When they do, it's a deeper and more intense pain than most other moon signs experience. For Cancer moons, the hurt usually stems from relationships.
When it does, the Cancer moon has a difficult time conceptualizing how the other person doesn't have to affect them personally. Their feelings can't be translated into intellectual reasoning or practical solutions. The feelings are inextricably part of them, and even though the cause of pain is often external because it's brought into their lives by other people, Cancer moon people often have difficulty separating the other people and the feelings from themselves. This can cause them to feel like others set out to hurt them on purpose rather than considering that other people often have their own internal issues which are driving their behavior. The moon in Cancer person is simply the unfortunate recipient of the fall out.
This happens because, in their quest for emotional self-satisfaction, Cancer moons follow the natural course of looking to other people for fulfillment. They go through relationship ups and downs, alternatively putting up their guard and letting it down. Emotional pain comes and goes as they allow people into their worlds. Real emotional fulfillment, however, is found when the moon in cancer enjoys their own, internal homeostasis by simply loving and feeding themselves emotionally. Cancer is a personal sign, so personal strengthening and development is the key to their peace. By not expecting to find emotional satisfaction through other people or anything else outside themselves, Cancer moons are free to explore and learn to appreciate their own emotions. A more peaceful and comfortable Cancer moon is experienced when emotions are owned as their own rather than allowing them to be imposed onto them by other people or situations.
The moon in Cancer who allows you into their emotional world is truly a joy to be around. They are caring, kind and mothering. Treat them the same way, and the relationship can be like floating on a lake of gentle, soothing water. Family is paramount in their lives, and that includes everyone. Frequent visits with extended family are meaningful for them. Parents, their own children, siblings and extended family are held close and always in their thoughts. Although their own mother always holds the most special place in their heart. Having an ailing mother in need of care who lives with them is common, and they will never lose their patience with them.
Although their love for their family is seemingly endless, they are still cautious with even the closest family members when it comes to expressing their most personal feelings. Cancer moons are always willing to listen to others express even the deepest feelings. They are accepting and offer caring advice. However, even though they are very in touch with their own feelings, Cancer moons know that expressing them is tricky business. Saying the wrong thing could hurt someone or could open themselves up to criticisms they would prefer not to hear. This leads them to brooding. They hold in feelings and let them fester. A little patience and sensitivity goes a long way to put them at ease. Regardless, they are sensitive friends and family members who always offer caring help to anyone in need.
