Although Aries is technically the first sign of the Zodiac, Cancer rules home, early childhood environment and to many the womb and birth place. So therefore Cancer and the 4th house IC can be conceived as the true beginning.
Cancer and the Moon are about comfort, safety and the instinctual way we deal with life. It reveals what we naturally do to survive and how we handle the world of emotion.
The Moon also represents Mother and Motherhood. Our Moon sign can tell us a lot about our own mothers, how we will mother, as well as what we need and do to feel safe in our own lives. Our children's moon sign not only tells us what they need most to feel safe and secure, it also reveals how they perceive us as their most trusted caregiver.
So whether you are a mother yourself or not, nurturing your inner child is paramount in cultivating confidence and emotional stability in your own life. And if you are a parent understanding your child from this perspective is priceless for teaching them self-love.
Dr. Shefali speaks directly to this concept of growing yourself up first in her book, The Conscious Parent. We must transform ourselves before we can even hope to give our children a chance at any kind of conscious living in their own lives.

And for me Astrology provides valuable tools to support both my personal growth process as well as my ability to parent more effectively.
I truly believe communication is key to any solid relationship. So by understanding this placement for yourself and your children, you can feel safer to share yourself more authentically and confidently as well as teach your children to do the same. This can naturally enrich all of our connections and most importantly the one with our Self.
