This is about the natal Moon in Cancer, not about the transit. Everybody knows his sun sign (or star sign). Indeed, the position of the Sun at one’s birth is very important, offering us a lot of information about our personality and daily activity. But the night follows the day and the subconscious mind is deep there, conditioning and influencing our thoughts, feelings and actions.
The position of the Moon, in a birth chart, permits us to better understand our depths.
Moon in Cancer Chief Feature
With Moon in Cancer, your chief feature is whining. Lord Francis Jeffrey, the literary critic and Scottish judge, had no excuses for this attitude and he said that „the tendency to whining and complaining may be taken as the surest sign symptom of little souls and inferior intellects“. This is a harsh judgment and not always true, but it reflects the feelings and reactions that one could have when he has to listen permanent complaints.
One of their common habits is to whine about the past. They have a good memory and strong attachments, so you cannot just tell them to get over it, as everybody else did. Mentally, they understand there’s nothing you can do to bring it back, but their strong emotions make these guys hanging on to resentment and clinging to the pain.
In a relationship, the Moon in Cancer is compassionate and caring. To be honest, extremely compassionate and caring, with a desire to parent the partner. In a relation with a Moon in Cancer person, one can feel like being with his parents, not with a lover.
