Sun in Taurus — Moon in Cancer
The combination of Taurus Sun and Cancer Moon signs is somewhat contradictory and confusing. The Moon placement suggests you are sensitive, easily hurt, and sometimes very resentful. The Sun, conversely, shows that you are not one to be pushed around easily, and at times you can be down right stubborn. Usually you hide your dislikes very well and rely on diplomacy, making it a little unclear to others exactly where you stand or what you are thinking. You have a way of changing your tactics to suit your purposes, and to avoid conflict.
In business you are a shrewd tactical planner who can come up with the right strategy, often influenced more by feelings than reason. Yours is a rather sensitive nature, endowed with an emotional side that can easily be aroused. Your foundation and the stabilizing factor in your life is in the home and with the family. Self-assurance, that may seem strong in your nature, is really only skin deep. Your capacity for conciliating different views is noteworthy, but it can seem that you have no real conviction of your own sometimes.
This is not usually the case however. There is a tendency for you to hide your light under the lamp shade when you need to be making decisions and taking firm actions. You need not be such a pushover because your ideas are very sound and well constructed. Your ambitions are strong and you never give up on a job. Yet there is a tendency to be a little negative and pessimistic when things don’t go the way you think they should.
There is an insecurity and restraint about you too. This results in a person who shows an exterior that is stable, while internally there is insecurity. There is a gentle kindness in you that attracts others. You also have a charming and tactful nature to go with it. You realize that aggression does not work nearly as well as diplomacy. Handling people well is an inborn trait, as is your almost instant adaptability to situations. You seem to be on everyone’s side at the same time. You carry yourself with an air of confidence. You are controlled in your approach to life and this makes you seem secure.
This combination has a Taurus side that is dedicated, motivated and sensual. The Cancer aspect shows sensitivity along with imagination. Caution is necessary if you do not want to lose your own identity in this process of trying to please everyone. As you move on in age, do not allow yourself to become self-satisfied and smug because a big part of you is easily satisfied with your life. Push yourself beyond what you see as your limitations and this will surely help round out your life. It would be a shame to waste your numerous strong points and talents.
Creativity in design or architecture are places you can showcase your wonderful imagination and artistic talents. However, professions that provide more financial security because of your Moon in Cancer attract you. Undertaking a career that is a gamble is unlikely because it goes against your basic nature. The Taurus powers of concentration and the Cancer Moon provide an ability to understand and remember what you have learned. However, you also keep a ledger grounded in emotions such that you remember every insult, rejection, threat or other circumstance for a very long time.
You prefer to pout instead of discussing your feelings of hurt or anger. You can become a cynical and sluggish person if you experience a serious emotional setback in the form of rejection. Obviously, releasing negative feelings like anger is best for you and this means expressing them openly. Aggression is almost unknown to you because you are a peaceful person. Luckily, the vast majority of people respond to you kindly because you will probably not come to your own defense. Occasionally though, it is imperative to state your views.
