Tender Moon in Cancer

There is something unique about someone born under the Cancer Moon. You often display a sense of inner connectedness and a willingness to get to the bottom of a situation. The Moon is Cancer's planetary ruler- simply put, the Moon is the planet that controls the sign. Your Cancer Moon is giving you a double dose of this energy and can provide you increased amounts of compassion. Feelings are significant to them, and they take them very seriously.


Cancer Moon people are very intuitive and let their feelings guide them spontaneously. You are very empathic towards others and are always open to help with emotional problems. However, sensitivity can make you highly vulnerable, easy to influence, and unsettled. The ease with which you get out of balance is high, so removing yourself and finding time to be alone allows you to assess how you feel and at your own pace. Withdrawal and moodiness is a cue that self-care is needed, especially under stressful situations.

Finding yourself in comfortable situations always involves a close and loving connection with loved ones nearby. You take pride and find joy in taking care of them and can be very happy to receive love because family and children are essential to happiness and an overall state of safety and well-being. A robust support system is vital for self-growth.

In love, Cancer Moon opens slowly. Earning the trust of a Cancer Moon is a slow and steady process. They can be very closed and resistant in the beginning. But once trust establishes, you show your genuine feelings without reservation. You are very romantic, tender, and highly loyal.

Knowing the exact time of birth is crucial for proper calculation as the Moon changes signs around every 2.5 days. The Moon naturally rules the Zodiac sign of Cancer, a water element that connects us to our sense of who we are.
