Combination Theme

All planets rule a sign, and the Moon rules Cancer (the Crab). (In Astrology, we call the Moon a planet for shorthand speak- yes, we know it’s not a planet). Moon people (Crab people)maintain a hard outer shell for the general public as if they have an exaggerated inherent distrust and a general fear of being hurt or betrayed by others.  However, they, like crabs, have a sensitive and gooey inner core beneath their shell; it's the tender and loving core that only close loved ones get to experience. Cancers enjoy nurturing and being nurtured by those they care about - close friends and family are their life's dedication.

Leo, on the other hand, is ruled by the Sun.  Leo’s are sunny, warm, proud, take-charge types. When combined with Cancer energy, we have a generally more loving but definitely more prideful Cancerian. We have a Cancerian that isn’t so affected by the daily deluge of emotions that most Cancers constantly experience. Instead, Cancer/Leo people are less fearful of dealing with others because they have the Leonine tools of confidence and ability to control others even if their style of control is to let the other think they’re winning the game.


Grace and aristocratic charm; warmth and devotion to family and friends; artistic sensitivity and love of excellence; fine intuition; open-hearted; business sense and organizational abilities; a personal commitment to your aspirations and faith in yourself.


(All Leo Moons) are the absolute worst at being on the receiving end of criticism. The quickest way to end any relationship with a Leo Moon (or Sun) person is to insult their sensibilities. Leo Moons are a proud and confident bunch, it takes some extra effort for them to understand how they can be wrong about something.


You love to open your home to friends, but you do not always like waiting on them. If you sense you are being taken advantage of, your hospitality goes sour. You need to express your creativity, but you need to be protected too.

Romantically, you are both passionate and compassionate, extremely loving, generous, and vulnerable as well. Sometimes you want to nurture, protect and fuss over your loved one; other times you want the same in return; and still, other times you want to dazzle and impress and simply be adored. You are a bit demanding in love because, at all times, you want to know you are held in high esteem, but you need romantic surprises, too; it is as though you want to be continually wooed in new and wonderful ways, while feeling fundamentally secure.

Your emotionally enthusiastic and colorful personality is both open and hidden. Your natural instinct is to test the water before jumping in, but your heart will always want to play. This may also apply in your business life, where your intuition and ingenuity make you a shrewd customer - approachable and personable but sophisticated in the ways of the world. You have a keen eye for value and may be an avid collector of art and artifacts.  Your strongly individualistic and traditional values will be expressed in whatever it is you buy, do or love.

Your Leo Moon gives you very warm and passionate emotions that will be beautifully expressed toward your loved ones. Sexually, you are probably quite assertive and perhaps more willing to take the lead than many other Sun sign Cancerians.


As a Cancer Sun Leo Moon, your approach to parenting combines the nurturing, sensitive energy of Cancer with the confident, expressive nature of Leo.

With your Cancer Sun, you possess a nurturing, empathetic, and family-oriented outlook on life. As a parent, you prioritize creating a loving and secure environment for your children. You have a deep emotional connection with them, and you provide a safe space for them to express their feelings. Your natural instinct is to protect and care for them, and you offer unconditional love and support. Your nurturing nature ensures their physical and emotional well-being, and you create a sense of belonging and emotional security in the family. You teach them the importance of family values, traditions, and the power of emotional connection. However, be mindful of your Cancer inclination to be overly protective or possessive. It's equally important to allow your children space to explore their own identities and make their own choices.

Your Leo Moon adds a confident, expressive, and creative touch to your parenting style. You encourage your children to express themselves authentically and embrace their unique talents and abilities. You inspire them to be confident in their own skin and encourage them to shine in their own way. Your vibrant energy creates a joyful and dynamic atmosphere in the family. You teach them the value of self-expression, leadership, and the importance of embracing their passions. Your creative nature nurtures their artistic development and encourages them to think outside the box. However, watch out for your Leo inclination to be overly dominant or attention-seeking. It's equally important to foster their individuality, teach them humility, and encourage collaboration with others.

With your Cancer nurturing and Leo confidence, you guide your children to be emotionally connected, self-assured individuals. You instill in them the spirit of emotional intelligence, coupled with a sense of self-expression and the ability to embrace their unique qualities.
