On the same day that we celebrate the Summer Solstice, 20th June, the Sun enters the sign of the Moon – the beautiful, compassionate sign of Cancer. Here we meet the fourth sign of the zodiac and the first of the Water signs with its symbol ~ the Crab.
The Cancer energy has the vulnerable, instinctual and emotional influence of Water with a high degree of sensitivity, empathy and intuition. With a wonderful imagination and a deep level of understanding, this energy absorbs other people’s pain as if it were their own, taking things personally and reflecting a great deal on their experiences.
The Sun enters the sign of the Moon. Cancer is ruled by the Moon which puts the Cancer energy in touch with basic survival instincts and is emotionally linked to the phases of the Moon – the New, Waxing, Full and Waning cycle. It is a nurturing, protective and nourishing energy, needing safety, security and a feeling of well-being in order to function properly. It is an energy linked to its ancestry with a great interest in history.
The Cancer energy needs to be needed. It is highly creative, mystical and vulnerable and is possessive of emotional experiences and people. This sign can be “crabby” and will approach things sideways, being easily hurt and having a huge fear of rejection – so a bolt hole is absolutely essential for this energy, as depicted by the Hermit crab in its shell as featured in our Cancer artwork.
In pragmatic astrology Cancer is known as the midwife of the zodiac – giving birth to highly creative and intuitive projects and always in touch with the needs of others.
There are a few things to remember as you plan ahead if you have Cancer strong in your astrological DNA: Learn to let go of emotional experiences – don’t wallow, allow yourself to move on; develop your independence, and become more emotionally self-sufficient so that you are able to protect yourself without being so deeply concerned about what others might think of you. Enjoy your natural creativity Cancer and celebrate the new season as we also welcome in the Summer Solstice.
