Astrology Signs: Cancer With Moon Signs

Carol finds astrology fascinating and spends her free time researching and writing about it for her astrology blog.

As we wind our way through the zodiac, what is the Cancer person like? I have many friends born under this sign and treasure their friendship, as they are loyal and caring pals. The Cancer person is often thought to be a homebody, however, there are many Cancer men and women holding very high positions in large corporations, and are generally very successful in business.

A Cancer person's home is their castle, and they often retreat to this safe haven. They enjoy beautiful and comfortable surroundings. Though social by nature Cancer people mostly enjoy being with close friends who they love and trust. Sometimes the Cancer person is known to be moody and withdrawn, but when in difficult situations they opt for silence until the problem is resolved. When Cancer people are determined to be successful in a sport or endeavor they work at it 24/7. It is never about whether they can accomplish something, but when they will accomplish something. Cancer men and women are both very emotional about life in general. In love, they are honest, loyal, and caring.

As you find your particular moon sign you will observe how the moon has a direct influence on the sun sign personality. Look up the moon signs of those close to you—it may be enlightening.

Cancer With a Moon in Aries

Aries is ruled by the planet Mars. You are blessed with a quick mind with your moon in Aries. You are also the recipient of a good memory, and once told something you rarely forget. Filled with the need to succeed at whatever the project may be, you never quit until that success is reached. You are generally in tune with others and carefully weigh your words, so as not to hurt another's feelings. Fast to react to criticism, you rarely ignore unkind comments directed at you or someone you care about. Sometimes you just feel forced to react, and sometimes regret your words, but your intentions are always honorable. The people you care about in life and your own emotional well being are far more important than any monetary gains. You are attracted to outgoing people in your romantic relationships.

Cancer With a Moon in Taurus

In the astrology horoscope,Taurus is ruled by the planet Venus. You are a gracious and kind person with a likable demeanor. This combination of Cancer with a Taurus moon produces a charming and sensitive person. You have this core of determination that gets you through many challenges in life. Fortunately you do not take yourself too seriously which makes life easier. Honesty is one of your strong points and you are almost always very considerate. A general favorite in life, you are included in many parties and gatherings. Though you possess a great deal of honesty you have a tact that people never know how you may really feel. You have many friends but are very selective about choosing your close friends. With a natural organizational ability, you know how to stay focused at the job at hand. You are a natural born investor with almost psychic feelings on the best venues for making your money grow. You enjoy beautiful clothes and living in luxurious surroundings. In love you are attracted to someone who is honorable and has regard for family life.

Cancer With a Moon in Gemini

The combination of Cancer zodiac sign with Gemini moon sign makes you sensitive to others and have a natural intuition which surfaces in many situations in your life.There is almost never a time when you are not flexible and willing to change plans on a moment's notice. You have a kind way about you that people just gravitate, and are always careful never to hurt another's feelings. Your personality shines at parties and events; and you hate being left out of anything.

On the negative side, you often do not stick with projects if they don't seem to be working, and unfortunately you can give up too early. You need to develop a little tougher veneer, as your feelings get hurt easily. Digging deeply into your horoscope, confidence does not come easily to you Cancer people with Gemini moon signs. In love you are attracted to someone who is confident and self assured.

Cancer With a Moon in Cancer

When thezodiac and moon sign are the same it reinforces certain strengths and weaknesses to the personality. You are extremely emotional and tend to lack confidence in certain circumstances. It is often easier for you to retreat to your warm home than face up to unpleasant situations. Your personality tends towards being a loner at times, and you need to work at getting out more in social events. This combination of Cancer with a Cancer moon rarely marries early, but generally loves to be part of a big and loving family. You can feel insecure in certain circumstances. As a Cancer person, you are romantic and show a warm and caring side of your personality to someone you love. Poetry, flowers and romantic moonlit strolls are often on your agenda. You genuinely care about people and you have a good ear and offer caring advice. In love you look for someone to share a warm and loving home with children.

Cancer With a Moon in Leo

Add a Leo moon sign to the serious and often quiet Cancer sun sign and you will be far more outgoing and fun-loving. You have a great sense of pride and possess a lot of confidence in yourself and your abilities. Making a good impression is very important and you want to look and act the part of whatever the occasion may be. Having a lot of close friends is not your thing, but it works well for you to have many acquaintances that you get together with for your social life. You love order and neatness, and sloppiness and carelessness is a sign of weakness. It is possible for you to take yourself a bit too seriously and can be a bit self-righteous at times. Getting your way often is important to you, and know just the right words to use to make that happen. In love, you like a well-groomed, intelligent and fun-loving person.

Cancer With a Moon in Virgo

The Virgo moon goes well with the Cancer sun sign as there are strong traits in common with both of these signs. Cancer people are sensitive and the Virgo moon creates a sense of practicality to the personality. Rarely do you make quick decisions and often can deliberate a lot before making a decision. Confidence has been hard to come by and you work at this with all your endeavors. You respect authority and like to follow the rules. Your quiet introspection and analysis work well for you. Some good advice is to follow your instincts and make careful choices and avoid impulsive actions. In love, you look for someone who understands how you feel and is generally supportive of your endeavors.

Cancer With a Moon in Libra

The evolved Cancer person is often very independent and the Libra tends to be more dependent on people. There is a dichotomy with the Cancer person dealing with emotional issues due to being non-communicative. The Libra moon adds a talkative and sharing quality. Sometimes it is difficult to give of yourself due to the fear of not feeling comfortable or even accepted. Put some trust in your Libra moon and go for it. You enjoy having people around you, and there is definitely a strong social side to your personality. You seem to know instinctively the weaknesses and flaws of other people. You have a strong self protective mechanism when it comes to all relationships. In love you look for a trusting and outgoing person.

Cancer With a Moon in Scorpio

Adding a Scorpio moon sign to the emotional Cancer person produces a strong and forceful personality. You are quick to react in most situations and many of your first instincts are right. People may know you as a dramatic person as you can show your emotional side quite readily. People like to include you for parties and events due to your fun nature and ability to converse You always take an interest in other people and are an excellent listener. You value and protect your family before anything else in life. You do not get obsessed with lofty dreams and tend to follow a path that will bring you success. In love, you look for someone with your passions and feelings. Sometimes you overreact to what is going on and need to step back and let some things just roll off your shoulders.

Cancer With a Moon in Sagittarius

The cancer personality is generally cautious and careful with most things in life. Add a Sagittarius moon sign and this could all go out the window. The outgoing Sagittarius is also far more independent than the Cancer person. However the good news here is that the Cancer person becomes more social and outgoing with this placement of the moon. You have the ability to inspire confidence in others which often makes you a great favorite with people. You are aware of people's faults and are sensitive to others who are insincere. Blessed with a strong sense of honor and loyalty you still play by many of your own rules. Though often contradictory with your sun sign you can be a free spirit with your own personal philosophy that works well for you. You are not shy about voicing your opinions. In love you look for someone who has a sense of adventure and passion for life.

Though opposite on the Astrology wheel these two signs have a lot in common. You are ambitious and have a strong sense of determination in life. The warmth of the Cancer personality can be chilled a bit by the coldness or distance of the Capricorn moon sign. You accept responsibility in life without complaint --in order to achieve your own ambitious and goals. You are generally unassuming and always willing to do your fair share of what needs to be accomplished. This combination of sun and moon sign is an excellent blend for business ventures, as you have that warm emotional side and yet the stability and drive to accomplish what you wish. You can drive a hard bargain with a big smile. In love you are attracted to an independent personality but you also want someone who will dote on you.

Cancer With a Moon in Aquarius

You are blessed with great emotional depth with this combination of signs. With the Cancer zodiac sign and Aquarius moon sign you are generally very perceptive to the point of being psychic You are known for your agreeable and flexible personality, and it is easy for you to give in on most things. It is not that you are weak, but you evaluate what is really important in the scheme of things in life. Basically you are not a fighter and can stay perched on the fence for a long time. You can express yourself displaying a lack of confidence at times, but a good kick in the pants once in a while puts you back on track. Known for your cautiousness you rarely take chances or risks. However, you can drive a hard bargain and can be a shrewd business person. Very careful and cautious in the realm of romance, you seek out people who build your confidence.

Cancer With a Moon in Pisces

With this combination of Cancer zodiac sign with Pisces, your reputation for being kind and caring about people is well known. You generally think before you speak, as you are extremely sensitive and aware of other people's feelings. You enjoy being around large groups of people and are more comfortable in this situation than you are on a one to one basis. Sometimes your critical nature comes out towards people, but you keep your opinion to yourself. You have pride and rarely express personal feelings to anyone but your very closest friends. Fortunately for you, it is easy for you to make and keep a wide range of friends. Sometimes you take this quality you have for granted. People generally reach out and are attracted to that winning smile. In a love relationship, you look for someone with great intelligence and good social skills.

Jean Bakula from New Jersey on January 26, 2013:

Hi Carol,

Nice job. I have a Cancer Sun and Capricorn Moon, and that's me. I just wrote a piece about Archetypes, and my adult son said I had to choose one as a Queen/Executive. He says I'm warmer than an Executive, but cooler than a Queen! Only words away from your Astrology words. It 's always fun to find another Astrologer, and you seem to have lots of experience.

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on December 10, 2012:

You wrote this with the quality of a book, Carol! I'm a Cancer and always get negative assessments by people who just met me? How dare they? Who do they think they are, ha ha! Vote up and awesome.

By Lori from USA on November 08, 2012:

Your remarked that you "paint and copy others a lot" ,seemed odd so if I upset you again, didn't mean to--I thought you had probably heard of Lewi since you did similar astrology research.

Anyway, {!}. Best wishes-

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on November 08, 2012:

I would never do that.. I think you are great And it went just fine.. Really, really...Please come back again.

By Lori from USA on November 08, 2012:

Oh no ! Why do you copy ?

I do think I did ruffle your feathers - it's ok to remove all my comments if you like I don't think it very went well,


carol stanley (author) from Arizona on November 08, 2012:

Never took it that way at all. I never heard of him...Hope I didn't sound that way. Sometimes when we write it doesn't come out perfect. I am really sorry.. Thanks so much for coming by and commenting...And I paint and copy others a lot.

By Lori from USA on November 08, 2012:

Carol, Sorry I didn't mean they were not your ideas - I really loved Grant Lewi's book and so I liked your article as well because the idea was in common. The concept does not belong to any particular astrologer ,of course, it does not "belong" to Lewi. Sorry if I said anything awkward. I'm an artist and have been influenced by certain other artists, I guess that's why I asked. Astrologers I think often do the same, they interconnect or build on similar things.

I hope you write more- I love astrology. I almost became an astrologer myself. And I have Venus and Mars in Cancer. I tend to make friends primarily with Cancers ! Usually they are very nice people, they make great friends.

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on November 08, 2012:

thanks for checking out your moon sign. It is all very interesting and I appreciate your stopping by.

Robie Benve from Ohio on November 08, 2012:

Hi Carol, this is extremely nice, I never new my moon sign and now I'm proud to be an Aquarius moon sign with Cancer sun sign. What a delightful description you have for me, spot on. :)

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on November 08, 2012:

Thank you for stopping by and voting. It is amazing how much really works.

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on November 08, 2012:

Actually not. I did charts for people and studied for years. These are kind of my own ideas that have built during the time. And I so believe in the moon sign concept. Thanks for visiting.

Salini from India on November 08, 2012:

I am a huge fa of astrology and palmistry. I loved this article but more so the link given below, as I could find out my moon sign and nature ( yeah I am human and selfish too...)

Nice work. voted/useful.

By Lori from USA on November 07, 2012:

I liked this hub. Were you influenced by Grant Lewi's book that deals with the same subject ? It's called "Heaven Knows What" and it's about the same thing, understanding people through a combination the the Sun and Moon signs. It covers Cancer Sun with all the various Moon signs too, of course. The idea of combining the two seems to be a good one.

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on November 06, 2012:

Thanks so much. Yes I am glad they lifted the band as I have many hubs to write. Thanks for dropping by and votes of course. Always good to see you at my humble hub.

Rajan Singh Jolly from From Mumbai, presently in Jalandhar, INDIA. on November 05, 2012:

Christy Birmingham from British Columbia, Canada on November 05, 2012:

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on November 02, 2012:
