All About Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Element: Water – emotions and feelings
Quality: Cardinal – instigation of new emotional activity
Cancer is the fourth sign in the zodiac and the first sign that is dealing with the element of water. Water is emotions, feelings, and intuition. It is everyone that isn’t said, it is what is felt. Cancer is the mother, the parent of nurturing and caretaking. Whether or not a female or male, Cancer is definitely very protective of itself, as well as children and family members.
The moon rules Cancer. Because the moon has a direct influence over our emotional state at any given time, we can say that Cancer is known for its mood shifts. Cancer is also very sentimental and compassionate.
Associated body part. Each sign has an associated body part. Cancer is the breasts and the stomach. The breasts are associated with feeding and nurturing – from mother to child. And the stomach is where the comfort is, when fed.
The issues of challenge: Since the exploration of feelings is the objective here, blocking emotions could be detrimental to a Cancer. When feelings are blocked, there can be a lack of emotional maturity, overprotectiveness.
The issues of joy: Bringing home and family to wherever you are. Feeding people compassionately, with kindness and sweetness. Remembering the past with bittersweetness and joy.
