The Sun in Cancer is the “Mother” of the Zodiac and she longs to protect others. Cancer is Cardinal and the leader of the Water element. Cancer Sun is ruled by the Moon, and has a tendency to be moody, constantly changing emotions like the Moon.
Cancer rules the Fourth House of feelings, family, ancestry, memories, antiques and mother. Cancer is The Nurturer and rules the stomach and breasts. She lives to nourish and feed others. Her empathetic instincts allow her to know what others are feeling and she can mirror the moods of those around her.
Cancer Suns are security-conscious and highly honor home life. She loves nothing more than the safety and comfort of being home.
Cancer Sun tends to be passive and relies on her feelings to make decisions. Being more on the side subtle, Cancers are indirect when trying to convey their feelings toward others. Like a crab, Cancer Suns walk sideways or side-step issues that are difficult to talk about.
Cancer, the sign of nurturing, protecting and sustaining, is strongly tied to the past, and the principle of Karma. Ever watchful of how her actions affect others, Cancer Sun lives by the Golden Rule, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”
Antiquity is a Cancer’s favorite and she likes to collect things to remind herself of the past. Tied to ancestral roots and family, objects from her own family tree are treasured the most.
Cancer Sun’s moods can change with the lunar phases. Rather than allowing herself to be taken over, she can benefit most by adopting the light of reason on any habitual patterns. This will help her focus on her true goals and not get swept up in the tides of emotions of others.
