The moon not only determines the tides and our calendar but from an esoteric perspective it is also the ruler of our emotional world - and of the ascendant cancer. The cancer ascendant looks at the world from protective and at the same time fearful eyes. The profound cancer ascendant has both motherly and childlike traits. In Greek and Roman mythology, the sun is male and represents power and strength, while the moon (ruler of cancer) is female and represents femininity and feelings.
Aquarius doesn't like to follow the mainstream. He prefers to go his own way and appreciates everything that is unusual and also somewhat bizarre. That sometimes makes it difficult to assess him.

The Aquarius literally sprays with creative ideas and so he happily starts it all. He wants to try it out before deciding what suits him and what doesn't.
