Caring, emotional, sensitive and intuitive. Likes to spend time with family, hates new unfamiliar surroundings.
If you see a strong courageous-looking person, but you know that his or her Moon is in Cancer, take into account that the chances are that this person is vulnerable and touchy, even tender, and has a subtle understanding of other people's emotions. Whether this is a man or a woman, they probably worship their mother and have exceptionally strong emotional bonds with her.
Moon in Cancer individuals need to have their own home, or at least a room, or at least a corner in a room, but only their own and not someone else's. They can be strongly (and irrationally) attached to certain items which they have important emotional associations with.
There are very few people in the world who are really, really important for the Moon in Cancer, whom he or she considers as their own. Mother is number one, of course, and the kids, no doubt, but perhaps nobody else. Even a spouse can often be considered to represent more or less hostile outer world who cannot be completely trusted. Moon in Cancer people appreciate stable family life but often cannot create that stability and may even put their relationships under stress by constantly comparing the partner to their mother, and demanding from the partner mother-like care and concern.
Emotional problems of the Moon in Cancer are easily reflected on the physical level, hence problems with digestion, breasts or stomach disorders. To restore his or her energy after a stressfull period, the Moon in Cancer needs to hide from the outer world in his or her home and to see only the most trusted and closest people.
Moon in Cancer individuals can be superb parents, and a father with this Moon can be more solicitous than a mother, if she has her Moon in a different sign. But there is a negative side to this: this parent can easily spoil children with excessive care and concern, especially if the children are not naturally self-reliant anyway.

What is the Moon Sign
It would be difficult to find someone who doesn't know his or her Sun Sign (a.k.a. Star Sign). But there are very few non-astrologers who know that each of us also has his or her Moon Sign - the Sign of the Zodiac where the Moon was at the moment of his or her birth.
As there is no day without night, the astrological portrait of a person drawn just by the means of his or her Sun Sign will be incomplete and partial. This is especially true for women, since the Moon in astrology is the patroness of women, and in personality it rules the qualities which are especially important for women.
All right, you might say, but if our Moon Sign is so important, why do only a few of us know their Moon Sign? The problem is that you cannot determine your Moon Sign from just your birth day, as you do with your Sun Sign. The laws of the Moon's motion are quite complicated, and to find out your Moon Sign special tables are needed - or a special program.
I have created such a program and made it available for everyone. Just enter your date and time of birth, select the time zone of the place where you were born and then press the 'Calculate Moon Sign' button. You will see the Sign of the Zodiac in which the Moon was at your birth, as also our description of such a placement. You will also see the precise degree of the Sign where the Moon was located at your birth, as well as some other interesting details.
I hope that the knowledge of the Moon Sign will help you to become happier, healthier and to better understand other people.
