Vedic Astrology Birth Chart
The sign of Cancer is all about nurturing and when the sign of Cancer falls on the 1st house and if Rahu is also placed in the 1st house then Rahu gets obsessed (as Rahu is obsession) about nurturing and so you physically or mentally involve yourself in nurturing or giving your services to others but there will be different ways to nurture depending on the location of Moon (lord of Cancer) in the birth chart. So let's discuss that.

Possibility 1: If Rahu is placed in the sign of Cancer in the 1st house but if Moon, the lord of Cancer, is placed in the 2nd house then here 1st house lord is placed in the 2nd house(in Leo) which is a Raj Yoga and you can achieve a lot of wealth in your life with this placement if other planets in the birth chart are also favorable.

Moon in the sign of Leo in the 2nd house is extremely good for professions like acting, teaching, creativity, arts, designing, video editing, games development, flash animation, knowledge of Vedas and other ancient texts (even occult science such as astrology), sports, etc. as Leo is a sign of fun and entertainment along with education and ancient knowledge and sports and games are also fun. Here you want to nurture the public or provide services mostly related to creativity or education depending on the location of Sun, the lord of the 2nd house, and also the location of the lord of the sign where Sun is seated.

Since Leo is a sign of knowledge, the knowledge could also be about your business products and services and it may not just be the knowledge of education like science, mathematics, economics, etc. but it could also be the knowledge of ancient texts such as Ved, Puran, Bhagwat Gita, Ramayana, Mahabharata, etc.

Possibility 2: If Rahu is placed in the sign of Cancer in the 1st house but if Moon, the lord of Cancer, is placed in the 3rd house then here 1st house lord is placed in the 3rd house in the sign of Virgo which is 3 places away (starting counting from the 1st house). since Virgo is a sign of health and healing here the nurturing could be related to curing someone from their disease and those are mostly doctors whether ayurvedic or homeopathic or any other profession where the main motive is to cure the patient by adopting any of their specialist healing methods.

But Virgo is also a very complicated and difficult sign and since the 3rd house also represents traveling the people who are involved in providing travel services through their vehicles (such as trucks and buses and private taxis) can also be seen from this placement as they face a lot of difficulties in the travel which the sign of Virgo represents.

But 3rd house also represents our skills of hands and since the Virgo sign is falling on the 3rd house you could be involved in doing something with hands which may be a difficult and complicated task such as boxing, repairing a car or any other vehicle, working for the repairing of computer hardware and software or even data entry, creating and repairing of electronic items, engineering, etc. The main aim here is is to do something complicated with the mind.

Possibility 3: If Rahu is placed in the sign of Cancer in the 1st house but if Moon, the lord of Cancer, is placed in the 4th house then here 1st house lord is placed in the 4th house in the sign of Libra which is 4 places away. Libra is basically a sign of resolving problems and disputes of others like a teacher resolve the problem related to studies of their students.

Real estate brokers could also be seen from this placement of Moon as they make the deal happen between the two parties which are the main goal of Libra sign > peace and harmony and good relationships. In general, you could be a broker in any of the fields of life such as real estate or any business related to home-related products such as clothing, furniture, utensils, air conditioners, coolers, refrigerators, etc. Here is the main goal is to make the deal happen between the two parties. You could even be a sports referee as he is always involved to resolve the dispute between the opposite teams or opposite players.

Possibility 4: If Rahu is placed in the sign of Cancer in the 1st house but if Moon, the lord of Cancer, is placed in the 5th house then here 1st house lord is placed in the 5th house in the sign of Scorpio which is 5 places away. Here the native could be into gambling such as sports betting or stock market trading and for that reason, there could be a lot of turbulence in the mind. You could also work in the coal mines and petroleum industry with this placement of Moon. Also, people who supply LPG gas at homes may have this placement. Teachers of chemistry and people who are working in science laboratories may also have this kind of placement.

Crude oil is found under the earth and petrol and diesel are extracted from the crude oil. But there is a whole lot of process to transform crude oil into petrol and diesel and such transformation is nothing but the representation of the sign of Scorpio. People in the petroleum industry are mainly involved in such transformation and so mostly their mind is into the sign of Scorpio as per Vedic Astrology. But here the mind could also be in occult science with this placement.

Possibility 5: If Rahu is placed in the sign of Cancer in the 1st house but if Moon, the lord of Cancer, is placed in the 6th house then here 1st house lord is placed in the 6th house in the sign of Sagittarius which is 6 places away. This kind of Moon is usually found in those people who make use of DNA for an investigation related to some crime or even theft. This is more so possible if Moon is placed in the sign of Sagittarius but in the Nakshatra of Mula. In general, people involved in forensic science, pharmacy and medical testings have this kind of placement. In a nutshell, people who do the investigation and research in the health care industry mostly have this kind of placement.

But this is not always so. Many people who are in the business of food and agriculture also have this kind of Moon in the 6th house in the sign of Sagittarius especially if their Moon is placed in the Nakshatra of Purva Ashadha. Lawyers, CA and priests are also sometimes seen from this placement. In general, people involved in the legal and law field have this kind of placement of the Moon.

Possibility 6: If Rahu is placed in the sign of Cancer in the 1st house but if Moon, the lord of Cancer, is placed in the 7th house then here 1st house lord is placed in the 7th house in the sign of Capricorn which is 7 places away. This is a good placement to go into the field of music and dance. Musicians often have this placement especially if Moon is placed in the sign of Capricorn but in the Nakshatra of Dhanistha as the symbol of this Nakshatra is "drum" and so many musicians are born in this Nakshatra.

But the managers in different professions who manage their employees also have this kind of placement. Recruiters and marriage counselors are also possible. Here you can also dominate your spouse which may even give breakup in the marriage. But people who are physically working on some kind of machines (for example in manufacturing) and who are into the customer care could also have this placement of Moon.

Aquarius is a very scientific sign as it represents networking and through networking, only all communications are possible all around the world.

So, with this placement of Moon scientists and aerospace engineers are seen. But any type of engineer whether mechanical or software can also be seen as 8th house is all about engineering.

But Moon in Pisces is also sometimes found in singers as the sign of Pisces is a very spiritual sign and spirituality is expressed through music, singing and dance. But this kind of Moon can also make you move outside of this normal world such going to Himalayas and isolated places for the purpose of spiritual growth or just for an expedition or you may even be someone who is trying to conquer something such as reaching to the peak of any mountain. Those people also have their Moon in the sign of Pisces as the sign of Pisces represents isolated and peaceful places.

Here your soul (Moon) would like to do something where there is fire or aggression involved such as military, police, sports, cooking, firefighters, boilermaker, fire marshal, welder, fire swallower, etc.

Possibility 10: If Rahu is placed in the sign of Cancer in the 1st house but if Moon, the lord of Cancer, is placed in the 11th house then here 1st house lord is placed in the 11th house in the sign of Taurus which is 11 places away.
