Moon in Cancer:

A Nurturing Moon

During each lunar month of 28 days, the Moon moves gradually through the whole zodiac. This means that the Moon spends approximately two and half days in each sign, each month.

Astrologically, this movement of the Moon is called a Moon transit, so we might say, for example, that the Moon is transiting Cancer or transiting Capricorn.

In astrology, the Moon represents our feelings, intuitions and subconscious responses, as well as our emotional moods and wellbeing. As the Moon transits each zodiac sign, the way these emotions and feelings are expressed in the general mood of the day will change. The way we might react to the Moon in Cancer will be different to how the Moon in Aries might make us feel.

Born With the Moon in Cancer?

Some people will have been born during a Cancer Moon transit, i.e. when the Moon was in Cancer. If that’s you, we say you have a natal Cancer Moon. A Moon in Cancer in your birth chart lends sympathy, kindness and a nurturing instinct to your personality. However, because Cancer is ruled by the Moon, this planetary influence does also greatly increase your moodiness, making you somewhat defensive and prickly at times.

The Transiting Moon in Cancer

Because Cancer as a zodiac sign is ruled by the Moon, the astrological Moon in Cancer transits are often felt more keenly than some other lunar transits. The full range of human emotion is on display when the Moon is in Cancer, and people often find that they are more easily moved, whether to laughter or to tears.
During a Cancer Moon, suppressed feelings also come to the surface, which can be traumatic at times. Long held resentments or grudges may need work, and there’s a sense with this lunar transit that the past sometimes rules the present.

During a Cancer Moon, astrology suggests that we should all try to be emotionally open and honest, since running or hiding from these deeply held emotions will be counterproductive. It’s a good time to seek therapy or to have those important heart to heart conversations.

It’s important to remember that although Cancer is an emotional water sign, it’s also a cardinal sign, designed to initiate action. One of the most positive uses of the Cancer Moon transit is when we can take our strong emotions and channel them into positive change. The key to managing a Cancer Moon transit is to put your emotions to work, instead of being overwhelmed by them.

The Cancer Moon is a nurturing Moon and it encourages kindness and empathy to all people and creatures. During this Moon transit, it’s a good time to extend sympathy or care to those who are vulnerable, both human and animal.

When the Moon is in Cancer, you might want to:

  • Snuggle down safe at home
  • Put up protective barriers if someone is being intrusive
  • Look through old photos and memory books
  • Write a journal
  • Express your emotions through art
  • Take in a rescue pet or nurture and mentor a child
  • Carry our random acts of kindness
  • Make decisions based purely on instinct

Your Moon in Cancer Horoscope

Aries Horoscope During a Cancer Moon (Aries dates: March 20 – April 19)

You’re used to direct, relatively simple feelings and emotions, but during the Cancer Moon transit, your feelings may be all over the place, especially when it comes to family matters. The water energy of Cancer can also dampen your fiery Aries enthusiasm, so this is not a very productive few days at work. It can however be greatly emotionally healing, if you simply allow your feelings to unfurl.

Taurus Horoscope During a Cancer Moon (Taurus dates: April 20 – May 20)

Because emotions can swing wildly during a Cancer Moon transit, you may struggle to keep up – and because of this, you may find that you cause offence to others without meaning to. This Moon transit affects your communication zone, so a good way to handle your changing feelings is to write a journal. You could also try writing a letter to someone, even if you never intend to actually send it.

Gemini Horoscope During a Cancer Moon (Gemini dates: May 21 – June 20)

The Cancer Moon transit forces you to confront feelings you’ve been hiding in the ‘too hard’ box in your mind. You may feel that your emotional security is being challenged, and this can be an uncomfortable few days. Fortunately, the energies shift quickly though, and that you are used to. Focus on the fun things in life in order to avoid being unsteadied by this unpredictable influence.

Cancer Horoscope During a Cancer Moon (Cancer dates: June 21 – July 21)

With the Moon transiting your own sign, these few days are your emotional base for the month. You’ll find it freeing and therapeutic to be able to express your feelings openly, and you won’t much care whether anyone else disapproves of what you say. It’s also a very artistic and spiritual time for you, ideal for creating meaningful and beautiful pieces of art, dance or prayer.

Leo Horoscope During a Cancer Moon (Leo dates: July 22 – August 22)

The watery influence of the Cancer Moon blends with your own fiery passion to produce a sizzling, steamy mix. This transit can be very passionate for your love life, but it can also make you second guess your plans, doubting your own abilities for a while. Use the Cancer Moon’s protective urges to safeguard your privacy, especially online and no social media.

Virgo Horoscope During a Cancer Moon (Virgo dates: August 23 – September 22)

When the Moon is in Cancer, worry is your biggest enemy. All kind of vague fears and what-ifs can hold you back during these few days, especially in your social life. Use the lunar Cancer energy to do something positive. Embrace one of those fears, move out of your comfort zone and do it anyway – it’s an excellent time for proving to yourself that you can do more than you think.

Libra Horoscope During a Cancer Moon (Libra dates: September 23 – October 22)

The Cancer Moon brings out your kindness and you may spend a lot of time helping others during these few days. Cancer energies are also surprisingly shrewd and business-like, however, so with this Moon transiting your career zone, this is also a good time for making a move at work. Show off your command of the bigger picture and let your soft skills get the appreciation they deserve.

Scorpio Horoscope During a Cancer Moon (Scorpio dates: October 23 – November 21)

When the Moon is in Cancer, a fellow water sign, your emotions may be very intense indeed. The big questions in life preoccupy your thoughts and you may be forgetful or even neglectful of life’s everyday details. If you know this emotional onslaught is coming, you can better prepare for what may well be over-reactions on your part. Stay away of the lunar cycle and prepare for this tricky time.

Sagittarius Horoscope During a Cancer Moon (Sagittarius dates: November 22 – December 20)

The Cancer Moon transit demands honesty, which is a natural trait of Sagittarius. You’re likely to cope with this transit better than some other signs but make allowances for those around you who find the rawness of it difficult. This is a good time to work on issues of jealousy or intimacy, or to seek counseling in those areas. It’s also a very good time to head to a spiritual retreat.

Capricorn Horoscope During a Cancer Moon (Capricorn dates: December 21 – January 19)

The Cancer Moon transits your love zone, so you can tune into the loving, romantic energies of this Moon better than most. The moodiness of the Cancer Moon is alien to you, however, and you may wonder what on earth is wrong with you on some days. Focus on the positive and pour out your love for someone in heartfelt notes or poetry. It’s a very good time to make a romantic commitment.

Aquarius Horoscope During a Cancer Moon (Aquarius dates: January 20 – February 17)

When the Moon transits Cancer, the shifting emotional ground is awkward for you to navigate, since Aquarius is quite an emotionally aloof zodiac sign. Nevertheless, if you proceed with caution, this lunar transit can be good for getting plenty of work done, as your concentration and focus will be increased. This is also a good time to examine your health and wellbeing, and to create new habits.

Pisces Horoscope During a Cancer Moon (Pisces dates: February 18 – March 19)

When the Moon is in Cancer, your normally torrid emotions may actually calm down a little; the cardinal energies of Cancer help you to make more sense of what you feel. This is very creative energy for Pisces, and a sudden mood shift may make you more impulsive than normal too. Follow a hunch and start something imaginative and magical.

I highly recommend it to anyone, especially like me if you love astrology more as a hobby and just want to suck in as much information as you can. I loved all the extra pages of information you can go through that are linked up with Kelli's website when needing a greater understanding. I already can't wait to go back through the course again and finding out how much more I can learn. I hope there will be more courses in future with Kelli. She is the best!Cached

The only issue I have is occasionally on the site itself, some of the links don't seem to connect...like the birth/natal chart...whether through email or the search engine links, or even the ones here on the site. As far as the readings, reports, horoscopes, etc. go....A+ and then some!!!! Love you Kelli!Cached

From the daily and weekly horoscopes thru to the monthly reports she delivers a way of navigating thru even the most troublesome aspects. And the weekly Zoom meetings with her email subscribers midweek, seriously help to plot a course through the upcoming astrological currents.Cached

    Awesome Amazing Beautiful Fantastic! When I found Kelli Fox it was what I needed to know and read about that I am as a Libra. The positive words of Wisdom that was confirmed. I live in the mountains of Blue Ridge Georgia and God really helped me locate this beautiful home - one level with a very long driveway. I read the testimonial of a man called William K and i was not out looking at the stars which I should being alone with the deer turkeys and bears I am cautious about the night time. However this man had a person born November 14th that is my fathers birthday and so I thought i need to write to you. Thank you so much Kelli Fox for being there for me. I cried when I read all that your web site told me about myself. My home is way up in the mountains and it is amazingly God given wisdom that made me buy it for peace and tranquility. Now I am wondering if its time to go to a place closer to the town since it is a two lane road to get to town. I love the drive to town however when ive got to get to the airport it's 2 hours and then I'm late since I start to hesitate (as a Libra) and then I'm late by an hour at times! Thank you. I love all of your website. The time now 4.16 am early morning. I'm always an early riser! Thank you again Kelli Fox. Many blessings to you.Cached

    I live in Georgia I’ve attended yesterday’s zoom about Mars Retrograde, I opened the compass on my phone went outside around 8:45 -9:00 pm eastern time zone, walked down the driveway, it’s a beautiful driveway with and amazing view of the sky, So I walked down my driveway glancing, at my compass, got to the end of the driveway, I was already walking west, Look again at my compass, looked up and bam, there it was. Blinking I thought it was a plane at first, the sky was clear so I was able to see all the other stars very well, but Mars from where its located was by itself, there wasn’t any other stars around it, it had a bit reddish glow to it that’s how I knew it was Mars, one of the best days of my life, you want to know something cool, my son is a Scorpio Nov 14/2005 words can’t express the feeling I had knowing that I was looking at my sons ruler, I am a Taurus May 19/1986 special night for me.Cached

    Hi there! I am thoroughly enjoying receiving your horoscopes and informative information on how the planets are affecting our everyday lives. To say this year has been so unpredictable is an understatement, but when you explain how the planets are ‘behaving’, it makes much more sense to me. I have known about the spirit world from being a small child and am in fact a registered healer working in my local church helping and teaching as many people as I can. I feel very much the different energies in people who are unknown to me and can sum them up, usually with uncanny accuracy. A gift from God that I cherish and will never abuse.... if I do, I know it will be taken away from me. Thank you again for your insights and please keep them coming. Sending lots of hugs 🤗🤗🤗🤗 to you and yours. 💜💞💜Cached
