Sun in Cancer — Moon in Capricorn
The combination of Cancer Sun and Capricorn Moon signs produces a good deal of ambition and determination in your personality. Yet this is well disguised in a mask of congeniality and understanding. The Cancer Sun is naturally understanding and affectionate, lessening the normal coldness of the Capricorn Moon. This lends good insight and a penetrating look at human nature. You are well equipped for a role in some type of public or official responsibility, and apt to gain recognition for your work in this regard.
Prestige and status are likely to flow your way if you make any effort to achieve before the public. You have a reassuring way as you always seem willing to assume responsibilities, and work hard to reach goals. You expect things of value to require a good deal of effort. Unassuming and unpretentious, you are ever willing to tow your share of the load. You appreciate the value of a dollar, but you’re not likely to spare cost when it comes to obtaining quality for your investment. A high degree of self-discipline allows you to save or even hoard money for that rainy day.
You have a shrewdness that produces a genial and warm manner, but your purpose remains steely and determined. This nice blend of the personal and the sincere, with the calculating business core, allows you to accomplish much without hurting anyone’s feelings. It permits you to muster and retain many friends along the way. You know how to drive a hard bargain with a smile on your face, and you have a keen sense for understanding people and instinctively sensing their motives.
Your insight into people is extraordinarily good because of your experience. This gives you prohibitions and conflicts even though it provides special perceptions for you. You do not feel fearful of a future that is not certain like most Cancers. Your goals are very high as the result of your ambitions and desire for recognition. Your Capricorn aspect is goal oriented, distant and rugged while the Cancer part is benevolent, unsure and emotional. This obviously puts the signs in some opposition. You have inner disputes trying to solve issues and you need to build yourself up because of this.
Inner firmness of purpose and determination have helped you over the early obstructions that in all likelihood you experienced in your childhood environment. This made you a self-examining and calculating person, especially for a Cancer individual. You are a quite serious person and learn things easily. Your strong Capricorn inner nature finds opposition from the gentler Cancer. You are in need of proving yourself for inner satisfaction as well as recognition from the world at large. You have a somewhat unique approach to life and you are never happy with external impressions.
You approach it with a view towards change and novelty no matter what you do. Galileo the astronomer and the writer Ernest Hemingway were both members of your combination, and their work shows the totally different nature of the Cancer-Capricorn perspective. Seclusion is something that you desire, but while that may be good in limited amounts, too much can bring about alienation from the world around you and feelings of not being good enough. Depression, disappointment and withdrawal can come about with your continual dissatisfaction to achieve this.
Even turning to drugs or alcohol are possible in severe cases. Try to recognize you have gifts and learn to appreciate yourself, while accepting you limitations. You have strengths that need to be acknowledged and it is OK to be sensitive in life sometimes. You need to work on accepting yourself and loving yourself. You can accomplish anything after you have learned to make peace with your inner nature. Capricorn’s realism, organization, and aspirations combined with Cancer’s vision and intuition can give you an excellent business sense.
