Like the luminary by which it's ruled (the Moon), Cancer's moods wax and wane, making for a very changeable nature. From bright with an infectious laugh to dark and brooding, the Moonchild has many faces. 

What about the Moonchild's Moon? The Moon sign, its quality, and element, as well as house position -- all are a cumulative giveaway to the emotional underpinnings driving the sometimes enigmatic and sensitive nature of the Cancer.

The homebody sign has to come home often to refill the well, and the Moon shows the way.

For help finding where your Moon rests, try looking for the symbol on your birth chart.

Aries Moon

Sun and Moon square for forceful outbursts of emotion. With a tendency to take slights personally, you have a habit of coming out swinging. Confrontational by nature, you may struggle with the ability to see outside your own subjective take.

A unique courage in expressing your sensitivity is admirable but can at times be overwhelming for those around you. Physicality, for you, is a catharsis, typically making the 'best you' quite fit and a fun and energetic lover.

Taurus Moon

Moon is content here. A sensualist, happy to tend your own garden, you're often perfectly content with your own company. A nurturer moon assures that you love to nourish friends and family mentally, emotionally and through good food. As such, you strive to create and maintain a cozy, welcoming atmosphere as much for yourself as those closest you to.

However, it's important to guard against a penchant for holding onto grudges and resentment -- such sentiments do far more damage to you than to others.

Gemini Moon

Prone to a potentially anxious nature, especially when overstimulated, environments with a minimal influx of frequencies allow you to better express the more curious, caring aspects of yourself. Personal space and time are central to your existence, and your best recharged by reading or enjoying music -- whatever has an atmosphere, a home for the imagination.  

Cancer Moon

Double Cancer! A central purpose (Sun) backed by instincts, emotions (Moon) which move you toward a set goal can make you a force to reckon with in all of the best ways. Rest, to you, is done at home with cozy comforts.

A nurturer with a heartfelt way of engaging, friends and family who know you best are never left wondering where they stand with you. Intimately prescient of the lineage of the past, family, you possess an acute sense of who you are and what has made you that way. Your path of self-expression is one best-traversed sharing the personal and universal.

A strong imagination may lead to dreams or nightmares.

Leo Moon

A loyal friend and Moonchild with a streak of sunny optimism, you're innate of a sense of being special, with a strong focus on personal origins. With a penchant for the dramatic, you're fully capable of banishing friends and even family if you feel you've been disrespected or slighted in some way. 

Celebrations and holidays provide your favorite opportunities to surround yourself -- and shine -- with close friends and family. Recharges with play, adventures, creating with color and being with special friends.

Virgo Moon

You thrive in the stability and order of a daily routine. Too much chaos, noise, or rapid change can put your nerves on edge. Rituals of purification and self-care are critical to well-being as fluctuating health may be an issue.

Set aside time each morning to tune in to needs of the day -- what's today's prescription for the mind, spirit, and body?

Libra Moon

Sun and Moon angle in a tense square. The instinct for harmonious give-and-take is at times eclipsed by total submersion into your own emotional atmosphere. Emotional independence is hard-won but worth the challenge.

A thoughtful sounding board and natural friend who feels like family, you have little trouble attracting and keeping friends. Your greatest peace is found in aesthetically pleasing places and relaxing at home.

Scorpio Moon

Oftentimes well-defended, with real trust earned over time; once betrayed, nigh impossible to open to the betrayer again. Very private, mysterious with veiled emotional intensity. Love is all or nothing and, as a partner you have a formidable sex drive.

Your Scorpio Moon forces extreme transformations again and again. You recharge psychic energy with space and time to tune into deeper soul demands.

Sagittarius Moon

A rare Cancer with a heart for traveling, you see the world as home, and your home where you lay your head. Your path is resolution of contradictions between freedom-loving, and desire to be part of a close-knit tribe. A warm adviser, educator or parent, you leave an indelible mark on all who encounter you.

You bring a personal touch to adventure and knowledge-seeking -- it's a story carried close to the chest. Your relaxation is mind-expanding studies, a physical challenge or on the pilgrim trail.

Capricorn Moon

Sun and Moon are opposite -- born at the Full Moon.

You're highly conscious of your place in the world. The instinct to be reserved with emotion on one side, with a natural empathy for reaching out on the other makes you selective in the longterm alliances you choose. 

Prone to bouts of deep melancholy, solitude, being wholly undisturbed, is your greatest tonic. 

Aquarius Moon

A natural visionary for inclusive efforts -- a rising tide lifts all boats -- your observer's soul, for more clarity and less emotional dependence makes you a great candidate for leadership positions. Your propensity for being remote at times, and in your own world, belies a sparkle in the eyes which telepaths acceptance. Inspired social contacts inspire you to be your best. 

Pisces Moon

Bearing a mystic's heart, your personal memories and impressions are a river that opens to the all-consuming sea. Time alone is restorative, but too much leads to isolation. 

A deeply empathic soul who strives to make a difference to the downtrodden you feel what others feel, giving them much gold for artistic expression. 

Yours is a journey to self-definition out of lostness.
