Vedic Astrology Birth Chart
When Rahu is placed in the sign of Cancer in the 7th house then here you get obsessed (as Rahu is your obsession in life) about nurturing other people by doing a type of work which will depend on the location of Saturn in your birth chart as the placement of Saturn shows what action we take or what work we do in our life.

When you nurture you do that by doing some work. For example, if you are a nurse and want to nurture a patient you do that by working for the patient like giving timely medicine and meeting his/her other requirements to recover him/her from the bad health. That is also the reason both the Capricorn and the Cancer signs are opposite to each other in the natural zodiac as both go hand-in-hand.

You cannot nurture unless you work and whenever you are working you are already nurturing > at that moment > as nurturing is nothing but using your soul (the sign of Cancer) to work as the soul has a complete strength. When you eat it gives more strength to your soul and then your soul (Cancer) works to accomplish a certain task and the task is nothing but Capricorn as Capricorn is a sign of action but it is a repetitive work at a fixed location. For example, when you are sewing clothes this work is repetitive as the sewing machine is just rotating at the same angle by your efforts.

Also, think of a rickshaw puller and you can see he is moving also, on the road, other than doing the repetitive work of paddling the rickshaw. The moving part is Mars (Aries) as Mars is energy which makes you move while the repetitive work is Saturn (or Capricorn).

Now when Rahu is placed in the sign of Cancer it gets you obsessed about using the strength of your soul (as the sign of Cancer represents our soul as said before) to nurture others or to work for yourself. Now it is important to look at the placement of Saturn (ascendant lord) and Moon (7th house lord) to guess what the type of work it will be.

Possibility 1: If Rahu is placed in the sign of Cancer in the 7th house but if Moon(lord of 7th house) is placed in the 8th house in the sign of Leo then here the 7th house lord is placed in the 8th house which is two places away (count 1 as 7th house). 8th house is of risks, emergencies, and sudden ups-and-downs and the sign of Leo represents fun and entertainment. There are many professions where there is a risk but also it is a way to entertain the public.

For example, just think of the circus people. There are many stunts in the circus which are risky (also involve sudden ups-and-downs) and it is also a way to entertain (Leo) the public. So people working in a circus are often seen from this placement of Rahu and Moon but Saturn (ascendant lord) must be placed in the sign of Scorpio in the 11th house and Mars (lord of 11th house) must be placed in the sign of Leo in the 8th house for that to happen. But still, nothing can be said with certainty unless the position of all the planets in the birth chart is known.

But there are also many reality shows related to fun and entertainment and kids perform stunts such as flipping their body etc and such kids may also have this kind of placement of Rahu and Moon. A stuntman, in general, is seen from this placement. If Saturn is debilitated (placed in the sign of Aries in 4th house) and if Mars (lord of 4th house) is placed in the sign of Leo in the 8th house then such debilitated Saturn even can cause an accident in a stunt. A magician who performs magic tricks can also be seen from this placement but Mercury needs to be placed in the 8th house as magic tricks are done by hands and Mercury represents our hands.

Possibility 2: If Rahu is placed in the sign of Cancer in the 7th house but if Moon(lord of 7th house) is placed in the 9th house in the sign of Virgo then here the 7th house lord is placed in the 9th house which is three places away. Here simply the mind (as Moon is mind) is into arguments as Virgo is a sign of arguments but suppose Mercury is also placed in the 9th house in the sign of Virgo then the native might actually be doing the arguments in his communication then such placement can give professions where you argue a lot such as a Lawyer, professor of philosophy or any other subject, teacher, Chartered Accountant, accountant, law and legal, religion, etc. Accountants don't speak but they write but Mercury is also writing so this profession is also possible.

Also, many people do detail-oriented work over the internet or on computers in general such as data entry, using the excel sheets, database management, web programming, web design, software development, app development etc. Such professions are also possible with this placement of Moon and Mercury in the 9th house. But drawing and painting are also possible as when you draw and paint it is a very detail-oriented work which the sign of Virgo represents and 9th house is also the house of publishing. Writing and publishing go hand-in-hand.

Possibility 3: If Rahu is placed in the sign of Cancer in the 7th house but if Moon(lord of 7th house) is placed in the 10th house in the sign of Libra then here the 7th house lord is placed in the 10th house which is 4 places away. Libra is a sign of being fare and also peace and harmony and it is also a sign of business. Just think of a boxing referee or any sports referee. If there is any problem in the game or competition (between the two parties) they act as the middleman and decides what is fair and which opponent deserves the point or win. These kinds of sports referees usually have their Moon in the sign of Libra in the 10th house as 10th house is also the house of competitions as this house is 6th from the 5th house of sports and anything 6th is competition. Even in cricket the empire or the third empire decides whether the player is out or not and he needs to be fair which is what the sign of Libra represents.

Possibility 4: If Rahu is placed in the sign of Cancer in the 7th house but if Moon(lord of 7th house) is placed in the 11th house in the sign of Scorpio then here the 7th house lord is placed in the 11th house which is 5 places away. This kind of placement is often found in the people who are involved in recycling because recycling is nothing but transformation which the sign of Scorpio represents. Those people who are collecting all the debris in public places (11th house) and selling to the recycling companies also have this kind of placement of Moon (in the sign of Scorpio in the 11th house).

11th house is 6th from the 6th house and so it is the higher self of 6th house. If 6th house is cleaning then the 11th house is the cleaning of societies at large which also means cleaning of the public places. But 6th house lord Mercury and 8th house lord Sun must also be placed in the sign of Scorpio in the 11th house for this to happen and Saturn (ascendant lord) must be placed in the sign of Virgo in the 9th house.

But people who do trading (not investing) in share market may also have their Moon in the 11th house and if Venus (5th house and 10th house lord) is also seated along with Moon in the 11th house then it can give a lot of gains in the share market. But Mars (11th house lord) must also be placed in the 2nd house for that to happen. But if Mars is debilitated (placed in the 7th house) then it may even give loss.

Possibility 5: If Rahu is placed in the sign of Cancer in the 7th house but if Moon(lord of 7th house) is placed in the 12th house in the sign of Sagittarius then here the 7th house lord is placed in the 12th house which is 6 places away. This placement of Moon is often found in those people who are mostly busy in acquiring knowledge or information through internet from behind the scenes as 12th house is "behind the scenes" or doing research in isolation. This is more so possible if Moon is placed in the Mula Nakshatra in the sign of Sagittarius.

Otherwise, if Moon is placed in the Purva Ashadha Nakshatra in the sign of Sagittarius then there will be more interest in traveling to distant locations and explore the world in a physical way and thus acquiring knowledge that way such as traveling to forests to study animals and plants or nature in general. Also, the native might be interested in wildlife photography.

Possibility 6: If Rahu is placed in the sign of Cancer in the 7th house but if Moon(lord of 7th house) is placed in the 1st house in the sign of Capricorn then here the 7th house lord is placed in the 1st house which is 7 places away. This placement of moon could make you a musician (musical instruments player) especially if Mercury and Venus are also placed in the 1st house along with Moon and ascendant lord Saturn is placed in the 11th house in the sign of Scorpio and Mars is placed in the 5th house in the sign of Taurus. But you could also be a politician or a social worker or in sports with this kind of placement or someone could be involved into some kind of physical work such as working on machines to produce or manufacture something as the sign of Capricorn represents machines.

Possibility 7: If Rahu is placed in the sign of Cancer in the 7th house but if Moon(lord of 7th house) is placed in the 2nd house in the sign of Aquarius then here the 7th house lord is placed in the 2nd house which is 8 places away. You might have seen those people selling pani puri (or some other eating stuff) on the streets such people are often seen from this placement of Moon in the 2nd house as the 2nd house is of food and finances and the sign of Aquarius represents the public. When they are selling on the streets their mind is always into serving the public which the sign of Aquarius represents and the 2nd house is the house of providing sensual pleasures through food. Also, many people who are into business their mind is all the time into the finances or the products they are selling which the 2nd house also represents. So this placement could also be found in the birth chart of a businessman.

Possibility 8: If Rahu is placed in the sign of Cancer in the 7th house but if Moon(lord of 7th house) is placed in the 3rd house in the sign of Pisces then here the 7th house lord is placed in the 3rd house which is 9 places away. This placement can make you a great writer as the mind becomes very intuitive in the sign of Pisces and since it is happening in the 3rd house of writing it becomes quite obvious. Such writers usually have their own original work and they never copy others or even take ideas as it all comes from their intuition power. With this placement, it also makes them eligible to complete very detail-oriented work such as accounting and programming especially if Mercury is placed in the sign of Virgo in the 9th house. If 5th house lord Venus is also placed in the sign of Pisces in the 3rd house it can make you very creative in arts, painting and all kinds of designing.

Possibility 9: If Rahu is placed in the sign of Cancer in the 7th house but if Moon(lord of 7th house) is placed in the 4th house in the sign of Aries then here the 7th house lord is placed in the 4th house which is 10 places away. Here the mind could be very active in cooking and even in sports and also trekking and hiking.

Possibility 10: If Rahu is placed in the sign of Cancer in the 7th house but if Moon(lord of 7th house) is placed in the 5th house in the sign of Taurus then here the mind is definitely into creativity and you could even be someone who performs on the stage or into designing and arts and crafts.
