TOM HANKS 9th of July 1956 Sun: Cancer Moon: Cancer Element: Water
Sun In Cancer You are a very sensitive person who can rely on feelings and ‘intuitive knowing’ to get around in life. With the Sun placed in Cancer, you are very good at creating the receptive atmosphere and nurturing climate necessary for desires to grow and flourish. And since this sign is about drawing on all that informs and supports life, you should also seek to put yourself in situations that ‘feed’ you as well. Cancer energy is strongly impressionable. Emotional comfort and environmental stimulation are very important if you are to avoid becoming too introspective. Your attachments to the past make you a natural historian. Cancer is the mother of the zodiac, always making a home, protecting and providing a foundation for others. A sensitive sign where feelings and real experience count more than cold logic, it doesn’t get any more physical and emotional than this. Cancer energy is always nurturing, sensitive, tender and moody. It feeds on emotional comforts, and often has a strong attachment to the past and ancestry.
Moon In Cancer Moon in Cancer is happiest when it has a secure, protective base from which to operate, for Cancer is the sign in which the Moon is most nurturing – good at creating the right conditions for things to grow and flourish. You are also very sensitive, sensing and understanding the moods and feelings of others. This makes you excellent at counselling and nursing. You are quite emotional, and have a natural sense of that which pleases, knowing the mood of the masses. You can be overly protective or protected, but this makes you good at parenting and creating a home – a sense of place and belonging. The pull of the past is strong, and you may take an interest in history, ancestry and genealogy. Stay open and receptive to the environment, for this will serve to help you develop the finely-tuned intuitive ‘knowing’ this Moon sign is noted for.
Chinese Astrology: MONKEY The spunky Monkey is the original party animal! Charming and energetic, Monkeys crave fun, activity and stimulation. They truly know how to have a good time and can often be seen swinging from one group of friends to another, attracting a motley crew in the process. Always upbeat, they are considered minor celebrities in their circle thanks to their sparkling wit and that rapier-sharp mind. Perhaps surprisingly, Monkeys are also good listeners and tackle complicated situations with ease. This Sign’s natural curiosity lends it the desire to become knowledgeable on a broad range of topics.
Mercury in Scorpio linked to Neptune, the planet of empathy is strengthening your intuition involving your lover or child. Staying aware of your inner world will enable you to pick up on what he or she is feeling. This influence is also awakening your depth and creativity with words, making this an ideal time to do some journaling, have a meaningful talk with someone you love or write an article about a topic that touches your heart. You’ll be able to get to the source of any issues that arise, which will come in handy during a confrontational Moon-Mars aspect later on, which may trigger your irritation with a family member.
