Let’s take a look at those things which matter here –
Moon - It represents Mind, Emotions, Mother, Local Government, Peace of Mind, Home Environment, Water, Milk etc.
For Cancer Ascendant people, Moon rules the 1st house of chart with its sign Cancer. So, let’s look at 1st house and Cancer too.
1st house/Ascendant - It is your self, personality, overall health, life path and head in human body etc.
Cancer - It is 4th sign of Zodiac Belt, hence it represents the things represented by 4th house like Mother, Mother's care, Emotions and Nourishment etc. Cancer's lord is Moon.
What will Moon do in Aspect? – Now, Moon can be sitting in any house of chart for Cancer Ascendant person.1st of all, Moon will take the energy of house of chart, it rules with Cancer sign, and take it to the house where it sits. Then from the house it sits, it will throw its aspect on the 7th house from its place. As Moon represents Emotions, Mind, Care and Motherhood, Moon's aspect on a house will show where person wants to feel emotionally connected to the things which it rules with its sign Cancer.
Things which I still can’t cover – Although, I am trying to make it a detailed analysis of planetary aspects but I still can’t cover few things like Moon conjunct with other planets, if there are planets in 7th house from Moon where it aspects in which case those planets will aspect back at Moon and impact it, and planets aspecting Moon from other houses. That’s why, no matter how detailed analysis you do in Astrology, there are still few things uncovered and that just shows the limits of Human Efforts.
Now, let’s see the meaning and impact of Moon's aspect through different houses for Cancer Ascendant people.
Moon in 1st house – Here, Moon is in own sign.This shows a very emotional attachment towards Self and Mother. This person is always concerned about self, mother & home. They are concerned to the extent of being selfish. They are highly emotional but emotions are limited to self, mother & home.

If they are in jobs then Moon's aspect shows inclination towards serving in Foreign Lands/Foreign Companies.
Moon in 7th house – Moon is in Capricorn here. As Moon is in enemy sign ruled by Saturn, it shows a mind which is totally inclined towards relationships. But as Moon is in enemy sign, person won't get into fruitful relations in early life. Things will improve from 30s.

Moon in 12th house – Moon is in Gemini here. This shows a person who is highly imaginative, lives in his own world, creative, business minded and one who will get success only after moving away from birth place. They can be great authors. Moon's aspect on 6th house shows that they want to use their imagination, creativity and business of 12th house to heal/help people in removing their obstacles in life. As 6th house/12th house are involved, and Moon naturally represents Medical Career, it also indicates a Doctor/Nurse.
So, this is a basic idea of how Moon's aspect will work in different houses for Cancer Ascendant people. Emotions and Care will remain factors with Moon, no matter it is exalted or debilitated. Exalted Moon means a nurturing & caring emotions whereas Debilitated Moon means Controlling Emotions.
