Moon in CANCER
Responses to emotional stimuli are likely to be very deep and oriented towards domestic issues. Moon in Cancer people attain emotional security by creating a strong family. Powerful intuitions guide their behaviour, giving them a self-assurance that is not easily understood by intimates. Moon in Cancer people have great emotional strength. They respond poorly to being uprooted.
These people are the Zodiac’s best listeners and will spring into action fast when you’re in distress. They are wonderful friends and parents … provided that you don’t mind being possessed body and soul. These people really are possessive.
They truly cannot bear to let go of people, possessions and (often) old attachments and behaviours that no longer serve them. The Moon in Cancer man is the one who is most likely to recreate his relationship with his mother with his wife. This is bad enough from a wife’s perspective if the relationship with his mother was a great one but if it wasn’t then…Hell on earth awaits the woman who marries this man as he’ll be needy, mean and clingy.
Moon in Cancer people find it very difficult to reign in their emotional side and sometimes feel ashamed of it (men are especially prone to this) which is a shame because this placement bestows the potential for expressing their feelings and avoiding some of the hurt and frustration that Moon in Cancer people inevitably seem to get more than their fair share of.
Part of the reason for this is that they hold onto to childhood fears and hurts, and have to make a conscious effort to overcome this. If they can do so they are the best equipped of all the Moon signs to sort out their problems.
They love deeply and intensely, and will remain loyal to a partner no matter how badly they are treated. Why? Are they martyrs are masochists? No, not at all, they just need to feel they belong.
Moon in Cancer man wants a woman who will nurture him, build his confidence and generally ‘mother’ him. Although he can be rather moody he prefers his women to be stable, relaxed, tolerant and non-confrontational. He needs the type of woman who will make him the centre of their universe and who does not want to have social interactions outside of the relationship. This man looks for a real homebody with the patience of a saint!
