Looking at it, the Cancer Moon is a sensitive, patient and devoted Moon. This Moon possesses literary and/or artistic abilities coupled with a sharp memory. The Cancer Moon learns and expresses everything through emotions and harbors a strong desire to be a nurturer.
This Moon is likely to have heightened psychic abilities, although life itself is lived within a series of mood swings. The Cancer Moon is prone to the expression of insecurities in a smothering, possessive and/or jealous manner.
An emotional character whose surroundings play a large role in his or her mood

These individuals are strongly attracted to water (although they are not always aware of this) and may live or vacation near large bodies of water. They are also likely to favor travel by ship as the preferred mode of transport.
Also, those governed by Cancer as their Moon sign are likely to keep mementos of their lives from the first four-leaf clover they found to the dog-eared photograph of their first love...probably all tied up with a pink ribbon.
