The emotional, watery nature of Cancer combined with the growing warmth of summer is bound to be an emotionally explosive combination. When the Sun enters Cancer, nature is at its peak. Mother Earth is as plentiful and as nurturing as ever, overflowing with goodies. If you’re a Cancer Sun, subjective impressions and emotions are your lifeblood. Your instinctual understanding of sentiment makes you gravitate towards manifesting the archetype of the Mother- whether literally or in a symbolic way- and of the Healer.
Cancer is the Moon’s home sign, so the Sun here embraces feminine qualities, becoming receptive, intuitive and dreamy. While the Sun imposes boundaries, the Moon dissolves them, so you might feel like the world’s sorrow blends with your own in an indistinguishable, ever oscillating mess. That’s why the Crab has her tough shell: her strategy is to protect herself as well as she can from the inevitable pain of life, be it through a safe home or a reserve in fully opening up to others. This defense, in a moderate dose, is needed for survival, as any change threatens the already unstable inner world.
A cardinal sign, Cancer is always ready to defend her and her loved ones’ safety. Creating conditions for others to grow is the sign’s highest expression, yet it’s all too tempting to stay safe and invisible by always focusing on others. You’re able to grasp a situation in a holistic way and to sink into your own psyche with great depth of feeling- ideally, you bloom these traits into a wonderful garden in which you nurture others, but you also take care of your own needs, both for safety and for growth.
