Voice of Astrology Horoscope for Cancer, 2013
Welcome fellow travelers to the Summer Solstice. The longest day and the shortest night. The half way point when at the winter Solstice it was the longest night and the shortest day. The Sun moving from the lightest of Air signs to the deep watery sign of Cancer can get us in touch with our roots.
Cancer is ruled by the Moon and as such can bring us into where we belong in our family structure, as well as how we fit into our familial life's purpose. Family and home can become our foremost thoughts and needs. It is also the first quarter sign in our Zodiac. It is an action point and can be looked upon as a starting area from where we have traveled since the Sun entered into Aries.
This deeply feminine sign needs as much nurturing as they give to others. The ultimate in sensitivity, this watery sign can make you want to go home in spite of your desires to move elsewhere. Come to mama baby is the cry of the Cancer mother to her offspring. Cancer is representative of the tides in the ocean, moving and restless, moving in and out daily. All of our relationships are found in the relationship we had with our mother, in some way or another. It is a testing of our love of mom and child, or child and mother. Noted for their moodiness they can be a bit overpowering for the rest of us that don't know which mom is going to show up. They really need for the rest of us is to give unconditionally at all times. This is a tall order for most of us. However, on the other hand, they can be our rock holding true for all our needs. They are a safe haven during storms that can befall us all at times
Cancers are the containers of all life. They are the reproductive aspect in our lives. The eternal womb that has to create and feed the world. These loving souls have to save and protect their loved ones and also by the way, the world. Their motto is chicken soup for all. They are signified by the crab. Hard shell with a soft inside. The inside is only seen by family and deep friends. Cancer records the history of the family and never forgets anything. Any slight or hurt is forever in their memory banks. The file cabinet is always open to this memory. Forgive maybe, maybe not. Dwelling upon hurts can become overwhelming to these people, and getting out from under this can become a life long struggle. This is the sign of the home, the house, the interior of all things, for it has to protect all things.
Cancer rules the stomach in the physical body. So they can feel when something is off kilter. This is their gut feeling in action. Can I eat this? Can I stay here? Is it safe for me to work here? Their receptor is always on red alert, and usually very accurate in whatever direction they are investigating.
The Cancer sign also rules the breasts. A truly maternal site on our bodies. They are the most subconscious of all the signs. They often have a difficult time being direct. This is because they are in direct contact with their emotions. Emotions are difficult to express with any degree of certainty.
Cancerians need to become quiet so then you can talk to them as they reach a state of calmness. Often their natural psychic abilities can get in the way of their free expression. Often called the psychic sponges.
Cancer also rules the mass consciousness, and as such, this is ruled by feeling, rather than reason. The Arab spring, which happens to be taking place in Turkey now shows us the nature of mass consciousness and emotion. We are a Cancer country. Is it any wonder that we feel the need to care for the world?
