Cancer + Eclipse Season + a Mercury Retrograde!
Cancer, known as the crab, gained its place in the stars for its efforts in trying to defeat Hercules. A giant crab–guardian to the underworld, viewed by early Egyptians as a gatekeeper or animal of the spirit realm. As a water element, Cancer is known as the mother or maternal figure to the Earth–caring for its animal and plant kingdoms, giving sustenance and eternal love to all that it cares for. The Sign Cancer marks the Summer Solstice, the beginning of summer in the northern hemisphere–tilted towards the Sun. Ruled by the Moon–Cancer’s affections and moods ebb and flows with the current of life. They reflect the mood of those around them. Cancer season signifies a period when we need to make more time to care for ourselves, to digest and process our own feelings so that we can be clearer about what’s our vs. others. The Eclipses in signs Cancer, and it’s opposite sign Capricorn, denote a major re-haul in the areas of our life having to do with how we our upbringing has impacted our stability in the world as well as our emotional and material needs i.e. family and home. We are clearing old patterns that have felt obligatory, in exchange for new experiences that are in alignment with our feelings.
