Famous People with Moon in Cancer:
The Moon is at home in Cancer, which gives those with this sign a striking depth of feeling and imagination. Those lucky to have them in their lives can enjoy warm affection and a sense of intimacy, whether as a friend or a romantic partner. For them every encounter is meaningful, and it gives weight to all their relationships.
Each life experience is remembered as an emotional impression, and held onto forever. Their powerful memories can be woven into story, music and art in a way that pulls at the heartstrings of their audiences or loved ones. The dark side is that they’ll nurture a wound for a long time, sometimes keeping one foot firmly rooted in the past.
The Cancer Moon has a delicate sensitivity that may be kept well hidden out of protection. But they demand a lot from those they love, and might test others loyalty without revealing their own feelings. This behavior comes from a fear of being rejected or left alone that has its roots deep in the psyche.
Those with the Moon in Cancer refill the well at home, and need a solid base of unflagging support. They also need lots of solitude to calm those turbulent emotional moods they experience, as well as what they pick up like a psychic sponge from others. When all this is in place, they’ll be emboldened to show their true strength.
Life with such a complex soul as the Cancer Moon is bound to be both challenging and exquisitely rewarding. The ideal mate understands that they’re both strong and sensitive, with wild fluctuations between the two extremes. You’ll win their trust if you provide shelter when they’re vulnerable and encouragement when they’re ready to take on the world.
