Taurus Moon would prefer to be married when it thinks it has all its ducks in a row. Cancer Moon would prefer to be married the day it's born. They work well because they both want to provide for others and reap the benefits of being paired off for life. Earthy Taurus Moon is the fertile soil of the Earth, while Water Cancer is like the nourishing rain that falls from the sky. They can grow something together.
Both Taurus Moon and Cancer Moon want to be married. The pageantry of a wedding is not nearly important as a lifetime commitment. They may both idealize marriage, and they may both love the idea of settling down for life and building a home together. While Taurus Moon may be more interested in the house itself and Cancer Moon more interested in starting a family, this works.
Taurus Moon wants to provide for the family, and Cancer Moon wants to provide the family. The only hitch is that Taurus Moon wants to make sure they can afford the children and to give them all the good things in life, while Cancer Moon tends to believe that love is enough. They may quibble over money and how much to spend. While they may both think a high-end fridge is a good investment, Cancer Moon may faint at the idea of its babies leaving home and going to college far away, while Taurus Moon dreams of sending the kids to the Ivy League.
However, Taurus Moon can convince Cancer Moon that these sacrifices are what is best for the family, and it will hold Cancer as it cries the day it sends the little one onto the school bus to 1st grade. And 5th grade. And 12th grade. And college. And down the aisle at the child's own wedding.
Watery Cancer Moon is nostalgic. Earthy Taurus Moon never throws anything away. Together, they will hold onto the memories of the good times, and that will get them through the hard times.
Now, starting a family or home-based business may appeal to both of them. This keeps Cancer at home near the family, and it keeps Taurus master of all it can touch. Cancer is more wistful about struggles, and Taurus Moon is determined to make the future better. It really does think that hard work pays off in the end, and Cancer leans on the strong Taurus Moon to get them through.
Cancer Moon makes Taurus Moon feel strong, capable, and appreciated. It provides good food, a comfortable home, and harmony. This is not to say they cannot fight. Boy, can they fight. It is usually Cancer Moon who reacts with anger and defensiveness first, but if Taurus Moon is pushed to the edge, and if Cancer Moon feels threatened by an outsider, they will bring the house down. However, these fights are usually few and far between, which is good, because it's like Mount Vesuvius exploding: a fight between these two could destroy everything in its path.
And then they spend weeks and months trying to make it up to each other. If Cancer remembers to let go of past hurts and Taurus Moon learns to say its sorry more readily, they can overcome.
Cancer Moon likes sex because it strengthens the bond between it and its mate. It feels loved when held. Taurus Moon likes sex because it is heightened sensuality. Its predictable sexual nature makes Cancer Moon feel secure. Cancer Moon doesn't want to have to impress its lover over and over again, and it doesn't want its lover to attempt to impress it all the time. It wants the comfort of a familiar embrace.
Together, they don't need to get kinky; being together is enough for them. However, Cancer Moon is less interested in some of the sensual things that drive Taurus Moon wild. It won't wear frilly lingerie or buy satin sheets if cotton pajamas and flannel sheets keep it warmer at night. It is also hesitant to get away from the kids for a weekend away, send them off to Grandma's house for date night, or have sex if it thinks the kids are still awake. The good news is that Taurus Moon is patient enough to wait for Cancer Moon to feel that the coast is clear and sex is adequately hidden from the family.
The main problem with the two of them is that they value fundamentally different things. Cancer Moon values relationships, while Taurus Moon values wealth. Taurus Moon shows love through providing well, and Cancer Moon shows love through nurturing. Thus, it could treat Taurus Moon more like a child than a lover, and Taurus Moon thinks it can smooth any problems over by buying gifts or having sex.
Cancer Moon, as a parent, is primarily focused on the children, while Taurus Moon, is still primarily focused on the spouse. This is something they have to learn to accept in each other. Both are possessive, but Taurus Moon more so. There is also a danger that if the relationship isn't going well that both give up on their roles as spouses and focus entirely on their children. If they can remember that the family began when the two of them fell in love, they can remember how much they appreciate and need each other.
