This post looks at the compatibility between the combination of Virgo Sun and Cancer Moon. Two selfless signs equal one nurturing relationship, where both love spending time with each other but in differenrt ways. Sun in Virgo covers the details and moon in Cancer handles the cuddles.
Although “she” is used for the Moon and “he” is used for the Sun sign, these pronouns are only used for convenience.
You can look at a man’s Moon and a woman’s Sun, or the Moon and Sun placements for the partners in a same-sex couple.
Sun in Virgo
A mutable sign ruled by the planet Mercury, Virgo has high standards and an analytical mind. Virgos are deep thinkers. They will take care of the practical details like providing financial stability.
Sun in Virgo’s to-do list is to keep things running efficiently. When he focuses his zest for perfection on his lover, it’s his way of showing that he cares. He’s not big on hearts and flowers. Though these are good intentions, they can come across as quite critical.
However, Sun in Virgo will go all out to help his partner with almost anything she asks. The downside to all this humble energy is his tendency to get wound up in a knot of self-criticism. His Shadow appears when he procrastinates, under the guise that he’s not “ready.” The truth is, as long as he’s paralyzed by his fears of getting it wrong, he’ll never be ready.
The moon in Cancer
The moon in Cancer sign provides a nurturing and comfortable home base. This is a relationship between two signs who love to look after people. There will be no shortage of fussing. These earth and water signs share similar values and could be a perfect match. As with all serious relationships, there are things to work on to ensure the innermost needs are met. However, this earth sign and water sign can make a stable and wonderful match.
Moon in Cancer needs to look after someone. Here is the Mother Hen. Ready to create a domestic oasis of comfort for her partner (once he earns her trust). Moon in Cancer is quite sensitive, so she needs a lover who treats her gently and recognizes her emotional energies. She wants a strong connection, someone with emotional intelligence. She requires just as much care as she gives out. Shadow Cancer emerges as the martyr who simmers with silent resentment (but eventually explodes) if she feels taken advantage of.
There’s no danger of either of these two taking advantage of the other’s selfless giving. Both are eager to give a helping hand. Sun in Virgo will hesitantly accept Cancer’s mothering. Although he may never totally relax, he’ll appreciate how she always creates a comfortable home and prepares his favorite foods.
Moon in Cancer will feel validated by Virgo as he thanks her profusely for everything. She will do so by constantly apologizing for all the nurturing she showers on him.
Potential trouble spots for Virgo sun Cancer moon sign couple
Both the zodiac sign of cancer and the sign of Virgo get stressed very easily. It’s important that they step back from each other on occasion, or risk eroding the relationship with toxic worries.
Virgo’s critical nature and own hard work will push his partner to be the best version of themselves. Both in her professional life, and as a partner. This can be very overwhelming for sensitive people.
One of the biggest challenges for a moon in Cancer is her deep need to connect emotionally. When she doesn’t feel heard or that her emotional needs aren’t met, she has a hard time. This can even mean she acts like a child and even throws emotional tantrums to get her partner’s attention. This will not be appreciated by the Sun in Virgo. They like to remain focused on the logical side of an argument and find a rational solution.
Sun in Virgo chooses to resolve stressful situations through diplomatic conversations. Lunar Cancer needs an outlet for feelings. For the relationship to flourish, the best way is to go through her intense emotional moments with her partner. If Sun in Virgo is willing to help Moon in Cancer through those internal turmoils, he could bring reason into them and help her rationalize at least some of her emotions.
