Insight for Every Purpose under Heaven

Cancer

CancerDear Cancer,

If you haven’t read it yet, you should review my article on Sun Signs in general before you read the article below.

When you’re being typical, your Sun in the element of water makes you motivated by deeply felt yearnings and desires. Water signs operate on the psychic or soul level. Because Cancer is also a cardinal sign, you are dynamic and action-oriented.

You relate to life through a personal history of feeling responses. Intense emotional experience and intimate involvement energizes you. You seek to bond intimately with others. You are nurturing and protective influence on those you consider “family.”

Sympathy is the virtue that you are developing in this life. You are learning how to feel for someone or something else outside of your strong protective shell and bringing them/it into the fold. Potentially, the ultimate power to nurture others and your creative “children” is yours. No other sign can care to depths that you can.

In the northern hemisphere, where astrology was born, when the Sun travels through Cancer, the earth begins to flower into young fruit to be cared for as the season of summer begins. So it is with Cancer: you are bringing to birth the future, even if it begins in a nascent state. Take good care regarding what you feed!

Cancer archetypes include:

  • The Mother
  • The Infant
  • The Hoarder
  • The Clinging Vine

Proper care and feeding of your Sun sign means:

  • Opening the flow of his feelings to oneself and others
  • Seeking opportunities to create, protect, and bond
  • Learning how to take care of yourself and others.
  • Continually nurturing your creative projects

Love,

Michael
