Sun in Cancer — Moon in Cancer
The combination of Cancer Sun and Cancer Moon signs, a double dose of Cancer, intensifies the natural traits of the sign and produces an added depth of feelings. You are an extremely emotional and timid person. There is an aloofness about your nature, as though you were waiting in the background for someone to make the first move to establish a relationship. Since most people are caught up in their own problems and often fail to understand this nature, you may feel that you are being ignored and snubbed. It’s hard for you to come out of yourself and meet people halfway.
It’s not that you are self-centered, but you may give the impression that you are by not coming across positively. You are so self-protective and seem to have a shell that you crawl into periodically, or even permanently, as a defense against the intrusions of the world. You are touchy with a keen sense of injury and hurt at real or imagined offenses. You can be very suspicious of people and their motives that can make you unapproachable to many. It takes a long time for someone to win your confidence.
Though you are extremely domestic and a very protective parent, you’re not likely to marry early and your basic nature can make it hard to achieve a stable and concrete relationship. But when you finally put aside this self-protective shell, you are exceptionally warm and genial, a true old-fashioned romantic. You have a deep sense and sympathy and a need for the same. A clever diplomat, your style is to work around an issue, rarely becoming confrontational and direct.
The emotional sensitivity and depth of the Cancer, however, along with your astuteness and ability to erect stronger barriers between you and your environment at the same time as you become more sensitive, combines with your resourcefulness, intelligence and refinement. You either withdraw deep inside your fortress or utilize your natural ability in the face of the aggressive and hostile world. You saw and dealt with the uncongenial world around you in your youth, which was probably a test. Through careful examination, you ascertained the most dependable and certain way to move through a very irregular world at that time.
You held onto this habit once it was set in motion. The double Cancer wants protection from the time of childhood until their old age. Nearly everything for them is self-protection. Building metaphorical castles to protect you and preparing your defenses occupies a lot of time for you. In kind of dual points, this gives you huge weaknesses and terrific strengths. Your Cancer Sun is magnified along with the Cancer Moon. You keep a low profile and are humble in your lifestyle and interaction with others. You can have big swings of depression and high spirits, with ebbing and flowing feelings and responses.
You can, on one hand, have a deep understanding of the mood of people close to you or, on the other hand, your over extended sensitivity may cause you to stave off people altogether. Phobias and fears of assorted varieties are also possible psychological results, but once dealt with you can be creative. You are astute at finance and have an excellent vision when it comes to business. A spiritual path may call you because many Cancer-Cancer people are quite religious. You move through life adapting your strategy and personality to handle the moment, even though you are active all the time.
Instinctively, you are aware of what others expect of you and this makes you an excellent tactician and diplomat. There is nothing more fearful to you than vulnerability, so in a battle you never go at an opponent straight on, but rather circuitously. Total withdrawal is possible if your environment is truly hostile or threatening, favoring complete closing off with others. That others do not care much about what you are hiding would probably surprise you. Your ego is actually the cause of your serious paranoia.
