Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
After a 'Special' break we are continuing our journey along the Zodiac. Today we enter the sign of Cancer (The Crab). With this sign I have double feelings, because my brother died of Cancer in 1995 and I am an oncology-nurse. In my work I have to deal with this illness so this sign is a strong and deeply sign filled with a lot of emotions.
|Cancer (The Crab) June 22th - July 22th
These people are remarkably good at accumulating things; indeed, they can be unwilling to throw anything out, even relationships that have passed their use-by date. They are generally over-anxious in financial matters, and make great efforts to gather in money; as a rule, they have unusual ups and downs in their early life and so they are compelled to work to keep ahead, but once they get on their feet they keep there. If channeled in the right direction, their enormous sensitivity can become a great source of strength. Once they overcome their touchiness and master their turbulent emotions, their intellect and imagination enable them to become a success in almost anything they undertake.
The main problem for them is to remember not to let the powerful, turbulent emotions of the moment crowd out their normally rational judgment. Their intuitions are reliable and should be trusted.
They are generally gifted with strong imaginations, and it is very easy for them to become excellent artists, writers, composers, or musicians. At heart they are romantic and of a very loving and affectionate disposition.
On the other hand these people are perhaps the most sensitive natures from any other class of people and if aren’t recognized they quickly give up or get depressed and melancholy. Above all, they require encouragement and appreciation. Their deep sensitivity presents them with valuable and illuminating intuitions, especially regarding those they care for.
They often make excellent psychics, and usually have a yearning after the mysterious.
They should never marry young, for their nature seems to change at different stages of life.
People born in this part of the year often reach very high exalted positions. In their home lives, however, they usually go through a great deal of trouble, and are seldom surrounded by happiness, no matter how successful they may appear in the eye of the world.
Such people have deep love for what they call "their own people," for family customs and for tradition.
In this sign the Moon is the ruler. Cancer is a Water sign.
