My Moon Sign
Moon in Cancer
Having the Moon in Cancer gives you a softness that permeates your entire soul. Your deepest desire is to protect and nurture the people, possessions, causes, and beliefs that hold the utmost importance to you. Surprisingly, it also means having a thick skin. Recognising your inner vulnerability drives you to be determined not to fall for every sob story. However, every now and then, the vast ocean of emotions within you unleashes a tidal wave that washes over the uncertain shores of your being. In those moments, your no-nonsense, tough exterior cracks, revealing a quivering bundle of genuine concern. In such a state, you are willing to do almost anything for anyone, regardless of how counterproductive it may be. There might be extreme resentment or intense adoration when it comes to the parental figures in your life, but there is always an incredibly powerful emotional connection. Consequently, you often find yourself battling against feelings of guilt, an incessant need to earn approval, or an inappropriate desire to mother those around you. Sensitivity is an inherent part of your identity. No matter how much you try to shorten it to “sense” or exclude it from your signature entirely, it persistently returns to haunt you. The opinions and emotions of others hold great significance in your life, to the extent that it feels like you spend a substantial portion of your existence constructing and maintaining intricate self-defense mechanisms.
