The Sun represents our vital force and the way we present to the world and the way we desire to be perceived by people.
The Moon is our inner being and our subconscious side of personality and is a part of us we don’t like to share with the majority of people.
Instead, we keep it for ourselves or we share it with people we trust and love.
People with Sun in Cancer and Moon in Leo have a huge discrepancy between their outer and inner personality. On the outside, they appear shy, reserved, and not very confident.
That is usually how their true nature is. On the inside, these people have a very high opinion of themselves and believe that they deserve best and often feel that they have been deprived of the things they feel they are entitled to.
That is what creates the gap between what they feel that they deserve and what they can actually accomplish because of their lack of confidence and other limitations of their personality.
Their ego is often enormous, but they don’t have a true capacity to satisfy its needs.
These people often appear loud, demanding attention, full of themselves, etc. Their insecurity and their need to be accomplished and praised for their value are not a good match.
They might not be aware of that fact, but their sense of inadequacy is clearly visible to most observers.
On the other hand, many people who have a superficial outlook on others are fooled by their fake appearance of confidence and courage.
The main issue these people need to overcome so that they could balance their personality inconsistencies is to accept all their traits as an equal part of their being and learn to love them and be proud of them.
They don’t need to falsely pretend that they are not sensitive, or that they are brave or that they are not shy or able to achieve something that they are aware it is not possible (at least at that moment).
Almost everyone should see through the façade of false security and confidence they are trying to portray about themselves.
Through acceptance of their weaknesses, these people might slowly begin to strengthen their weak spots, build their confidence and try to embrace as much good qualities of their moon, sign, such as strong willpower, ambition, initiative, and many others, which in turn will help strengthen their confidence and belief in their abilities to become successful.
That way they won’t need to pretend to possess these traits, but they will actually be representing their true self.
People with this Sun/Moon combination usually desire to have substantial material possessions and to have enough money to support their desired lifestyle which includes a lot of luxury.
These people love to pamper themselves and can behave rather spoilt when it comes to fulfilling their desires.
They are usually capable of providing enough to be able to buy themselves the luxurious items they crave for, but some of them rely on their family, partners, spouses to provide them for them.
Some of these people don’t have a problem being dependent on the people who care for them and wait for them to fulfill their needs and desires. It is fair to say that usually women are the ones who have a tendency to behave in such a manner, lot more than men with this placement.
Although Cancer is a sign which is prone to accumulating money and material possessions, in combination with Leo, these people might have a changed perception on spending money, and being prone to spend more than they should.
When that happens and they jeopardize their financial stability because they were recklessly spending and buying luxurious items they don’t actually need except to show off to others, they feel miserable and often cannot enjoy these things.
Leo’s pressure on Cancer can be overbearing for these people if they don’t learn how to control its influence and use only the best this sign has to offer. They should learn how to defend themselves against the urges it provokes in them.
When they learn to balance their Sun/Moon energy, these people will be able to make the most of their traits. They can be very successful in their careers and are very reliable and dependable people who instill trust in others.
By learning to reverse their weaknesses into advantages, they will be able to use the full potential of their personality.
They are good friends, always ready to help. They love being in the presence of the people they love, and usually invite them to their home where they are excellent hosts to them.
They love preparing food and they are usually great cooks, and especially love preparing delicacies for their friends and close family members.
These people are very attached to their families (close and wide) and tend to spend a lot of time with them. Some even live in the same household with members of their wider family and enjoy it very much.
They love the feeling of warmth and love which people they love provide for them.
