Moon in Cancer

One’s thinking and emotions, sensitivity to sensory events,  imagination, stability to care for and support others, nurturing qualities and empathy are all represented by the Moon (Chandra). Moon in Cancer represents maternal qualities such as loving, nurturing, emotional, sensitive, sympathetic, imaginative, social, thoughtful, gentle, and childlike charm. Cancer is related to emotional dealings and softness. It is a sign that knows only one instinct – the motherly instinct. They would probably cook and take care of someone who’s going for a fight rather than fighting themselves. 

Characteristics of Moon in Cancer

  • They guard their surroundings, their home, and their feelings. With the moon and cancer, these natives may appear arrogant, they don’t talk much, and they only talk to a few people, so they appear snobby.
  • In reality, these natives are protecting their feelings because they are nothing more than a molten core inside, with a rocky shell on the outside. 
  • Once they’re confident that someone won’t hurt them physically or verbally, they’ll let them into their domain, which is guarded by these tall walls, and once people are inside, they’ll see the true domesticated side of this native, whether he’s a man or a woman, their entire internal mindset and emotional response. 
  • These natives want to give a lot. They always want to give to society and take care because their mental stability of mind comes when they’re providing a service whether it’s a mother cooking for their child unconditionally or a person giving service to their company unconditionally.
  • They’re getting paid but they’re not thinking about money when they are providing the services. Their mental stability comes in providing nourishment to things, which could be anything, but they are calm when they are out there being hospitable to other people or when they’re able to nourish other people, and this is why being a nurse or a social worker is one of the best jobs out there for these natives.
  • If the moon is in Cancer in the sixth house, it provides nourishment to those who are socially disadvantaged. This is one of the most powerful positions, therefore just though the moon is in the ‘dushtana’ house doesn’t imply it will be negative. 
  • They’re just offering emotional support for those things, but once they feel safe with individuals, they let their emotions out and really exhibit their emotional side to them.

What does Moon signifies in Astrology?

  • The Moon in the chart has an impact on one’s thinking and emotional processes, mental skills and attitudes, and overall responses to the world.
  • Because the Moon is the mind, it represents mother, or motherly figures, emotional response to your environment, and creativity in Astrology. The Moon represents the native’s style of thinking and reacting to situations.
  • A native with a well-placed Moon will perceive the world as brilliant in any situation, will be able to experience the world as nourishing and supportive, and therefore will be the same as the world. 
  • When the Moon is challenged in an astrology chart, the mind will have shadows and dark corners and fear that there isn’t enough support to get us through; this prevents our eyes from seeing the divine mother shine for us and through us.
  • In astrology, the Moon represents the mind and emotions and the complex psychological faculty that interprets sensory data and instructs the body on how to respond.
  • The Moon’s light is a reflection of the Sun that is most noticeable when the Sun is not there. As a result, Chandra represents indigenous who, in a helpful and kind manner, pass on the inspiration and spirit of the leaders. 
  • The Moon is in charge of state or local government, such as the State Government, Municipal Corporation, City Council, and so on, while the Sun is in charge of the central or federal government.
