Cancer Sun and

Aries Moon Tribe

An Overview for those with Cancer Sun and Aries Moon.

Combination Theme

Cancer energy is an emotionally sensitive one. Cancer’s symbol is a Crab with a hard shell.  It’s an animal with outer protective armor that moves in sideways motion to handle its threats and enemies.

Aries, on the other hand, is the Ram.  It’s an animal that bursts forward, thrusting its horns and head into the heart of its adversaries. When the energies combine, it produces a Cancer Sun person who is more willing to take risks, to act quickly, to say things before thinking, and possibly, it gets you into trouble now and then. Unlike most Cancerians, your temper can surface often, but it comes in short bursts and quickly cools as fast as it comes.

There is a constant competition between being the caring, cautious, and often fearful energy of Cancer and the Ram-things-through fearless energy of Aries.


Quick, shrewd mind with an exceptional memory; ability to use both receptivity and self-assertion to good effect; individualistic approach to life; emotional commitment to personal values and relationships; sensitivity to people's needs; social flair; original, magnetic style.


Self-absorption and over-sensitivity to criticism; impatience and sharp tongue when you reach the end of your tether; tendency to hide behind a brisk, authoritative manner when at your most vulnerable; a sort of divine discontent that makes you stir up trouble when there is none.


You have a lot of love to give, but you can be demanding, temperamental and quite jealous if you suspect your loved one is not 100% devoted. You are afraid of getting hurt, but still, you thrive on risk - at least a little. Passionate and romantic, you instinctively adore the challenge and excitement of love, but you consciously need commitment and continuity.

This soft-tough dilemma within you may also cause you to swap roles at times: sometimes you feel masculine and assertive, other times feminine and submissive, sometimes you want peace and intimacy, and other times you want a fight - and even then, you are not sure if you want to win or lose! Your emotional life can be a bit of a roller coaster; just try to make sure that you are behind the steering wheel.

You are extremely passionate, and it is in your love life that your very high emotional level will be best expressed. However, while your Cancerian Sun makes you somewhat clinging, your Arien Moon dictates that you need an element of independence and freedom.


As a Cancer Sun Aries Moon, your approach to parenting combines the nurturing, sensitive energy of Cancer with the passionate, independent nature of Aries.

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.

Having an Aries Moon adds a passionate, independent, and confident touch to your parenting style. You encourage your children to embrace their individuality, express themselves freely, and pursue their passions with enthusiasm. Your Aries influence fosters their independence and self-confidence, empowering them to take the lead and make their own decisions. You teach them the importance of asserting themselves, setting boundaries, and standing up for what they believe in. Your energetic and active nature encourages them to embrace physical activities and develop a sense of adventure. Your Aries Moon also brings a sense of spontaneity and excitement to their lives.

However, be mindful of the tendency to be impatient or impulsive due to your Aries Moon. It's important to balance your fiery energy with patience and sensitivity, as well as teaching your children to consider the feelings of others and think before acting.

With your Cancer nurturing and Aries independence, you guide your children to be emotionally connected, confident individuals. You instill in them the spirit of emotional intelligence, coupled with a sense of individuality and a drive to pursue their dreams.
