Cancer: cardinal Water ruled by the Moon

Cardinal Water Moon "I feel"




The Sun in Cancer



Cancer is Cardinal Water, and its keyword is "I feel". Symbolized by the Crab, it rules the breast, stomach and solar plexus. This is the mothering and nurturing Sign of the Zodiac, depicted by the crab that carries its house upon its back and retreats into it when threatened. Cancer is the Sign of the home, the womb, the interior of all things and the most subconscious Sign of all. Like the crab, you sidestep issues, and things are rarely clear or direct. Your energy flow tends to be slow and lethargic, and you're often physically lazy. Your dislike of exercise, however, can lead to poor circulation later in life. Extremely emotional and moody, you have a great attachment to your home and the past, and your hold on your loved ones is tenacious as well. In fact, you live so much in your moods and emotions that you may not realize how self-centered this can be. And you probably find it difficult to separate your feelings from your thoughts. It's best not to reason with you when you're upset, but to wait until you've calmed down for you to digest words. You can be a psychic sponge, absorbing the emotional atmosphere around you. That's why happy people can make you feel good, and depressed people have the opposite effect.
