Your planetary influence is split amongst two planets, the first being the moon, which rules your sign, and the second being Pluto, which is a result of you being born in the second Decan, or part, of the sign. The moon is directly connected to your emotional sensitivity and perceptiveness, while Pluto’s influenced in your need for control and power. This interesting combination explains for your tendency to be far less emotional than most Cancers, as you don’t allow your emotions to overcome your mind when dealing with most situations. The cure for your distant nature is close relationships, where you find satisfaction and security. In these relationships you are revealed to be quite the nurturing and loving spirit. Take care to avoid feelings of jealousy, which are one of the negative aspects of your planetary influence.
