Horoscope of Cancerians This is the glyph of the moon; the moon was called Luna by the Romans, Selene and Artemis by the Greeks, and many other names in other mythologies. The moon represents the basic nature of your instincts and feelings. It has a nurturing influence that gives a deep impression and unique sensitivity within your mind. Intuitive people often have a strong moon placement. The moon has a direct influence on the mind which can be seen and felt in varying ways during each unique phase of the moon. This is particularly hard for those who are slightly unstable as the pull that the moon exerts on the tides are also felt in the brain fluids, making the effects of mental illness more enhanced. This is how the asylums came to call their inmates 'lunatics' as they were worse, or more dangerous, during the full moon. The moon also brings out the negative side of the cancerian nature which he or she must continually battle in order to overcome what could easily become a major flaw in character causing themselves and others much grief and pain. Cancerians are very friendly, straightforard, extrovert, hardworking, earnest people in their endeavours.
