Cancer Sun, Gemini Moon


The combination of Cancer-Gemini in an individual birth chart suggests that flexibility and versatility in the intellectual realm is a pathway to obtaining emotional security. Immersing oneself in the realms of adaptability and youthful curiosity in regard to the everyday world assists in providing a foundation or “home base” of surety.

We’ve often heard that “the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.” Well…..the way to a Cancer Sun/Gemini Moon’s heart is through their brain.

As suggested by the Sun-Moon blend, the type of fuel this person needs is both nurturing and connective. What generates vitality is the experience of interacting on an intimate level via personal relationships and understanding emotional approaches; the participation in meeting the unspoken needs of others and the employment of one’s vital warmth and intuition.

This is reflected in a personality which needs variety, the sharing of ideas and fresh approaches to their immediate environment. To feel safe, one must know that life is in motion and they have an abundance of choices from which they can draw at virtually any time.

In regard to feelings, this combination presents a bit of a paradox. On one hand, one is nourished through the verbalization of one’s emotions. However, the devil is in the details.

The same dynamic of talking can be used as a cloak or protective device from the gateway of one’s deeper sentiments. in other words, when operating dysfunctionally, this person has the potential of going straight to their mind and running on “remote control” only talking about what they think, allowing their cerebral functions to dominate. This depletes one’s vigor and contributes to a split in the psyche.

A constructive use for this blend is to remain light enough to handle life’s inevitable shifts. To develop the versatility which can simultaneously entertain multiple approaches.

Meanwhile, honoring the ebbs and flows of your inner life. Knowing that one doesn’t have to operate exclusively in the world of intellect or intuition, but can in fact, become a skillful navigator of both. Thought function in no way negates your access the rich world of emotions, and allowing yourself to feel doesn’t have to obscure your ability to think, but can rather prove to be a formidable ally.

  1. Thanks Sag-Mind. I can really relate to ‘paradoxical’, as I also have a Mutual Reception of Moon and Mercury by Sign. i.e.Moon in Gemini, Mercury in Cancer. Which for me, plays out as a Left-Brain, Right-Brain tug of war in the extreme.

  2. Stranger still, I designed a T-Shirt, with a picture of a Light Switch as the main logo, in April ’99, that resembles the image heading the article. Strictly Active Productions. It’s faded, but I still have, and it still fits! I might even have the disc, with the original images I took back then, age 14.

  3. Thankyou …really helpful as I navigate new waters of life after a 32,year marriage and the pain of betrayal . To learn I am worthwhile and viable is gratifying
