Spirals of Progression
While Cancers can seem shy at first glance, they quickly emerge from their protective shells in the company of trusted companions. Cancer’s power comes from patient observation, holistic perspectives, and a deep sense of understanding.
Cancer souls move forward in the world after making sure the environment they’ll be entering will be receptive and supportive of their presence.
As a cardinal water sign, Cancers like to take the initiative on projects and ideas they feel comfortable with. Emotional responses play a major role in the Cancer decision-making process.
These cautious souls refuse to invest time, energy, or money in anything they don’t feel sure about. Once they’re committed to a business project or relationship, they have a great deal of staying power. It’s often a Cancer that remains by your side long after the other star-signs have wandered away.
Instead of moving directly towards a project or goal, the Cancer prefers to circle around and view the focal point from all angles before taking on a new obligation. This sideways approach becomes a spiraling form of progression, a labyrinth of sorts. Cancers can gain from caution and careful consideration, but they must also learn how to act in a timely fashion. Too much hesitancy can prevent the Cancer from claiming a prize he’s entitled to.
While some of us have Cancer as a sun sign, others find that their Cancer energy comes from other planets or asteroids under its influence. The sign where the sun sits at our time of birth is only a small part of a much larger picture.
Clusters of Cosmic Influences
At the exact moment we’re born, all the planets and asteroids are rotating in orbit at specific coordinates. A natal chart accesses that cosmic snapshot of the heavens through mathematics, astronomy, and computer calculations.
When a chart is cast, we discover where all the planets were located with respect to the time and place of our birth. It’s then, and only then, that we can carve out an accurate picture of the astrological elements that may affect our lives.
For those with strong Cancer influences, it’s important to manifest a reality that will offer security, room for growth, a trusted network of friends and associates, and access to natural waterways.
Cancers crave the rejuvenation that comes from time spent relaxing by an ocean, lake, or lavish pool. Expansive views of water seem to comfort and inspire these sensitive souls. They achieve their greatest success when these times and places of emotional renewal are factored into their environments.
Transcending the Past
In order to create productive lives and to manifest the realities they desire, those under the influence of Cancer must allow for the idea that mistakes are part of any creative process. They must be gentle with themselves and forgiving of others as they move toward their goals.
If Cancers are hurt by malicious behavior, it’s very difficult for them to let go of the painful memories and heal. Learning that these kinds of wounds occur in all our lives helps the Cancer put emotional set-backs in the proper perspective. Cancer loyalty is a beneficial gift to bestow only if it’s given to a worthy cause.
Cancers stay joyful and dynamic when they concentrate on their ability to manifest their ideal futures and avoid dwelling on the negativity in their pasts. Accepting that their choices and intentions are genuine reflections of their desire allows the Cancer soul to trust more fully in the creative process. If a Cancer wallows in depressing territories for too long, self-destructive behaviors can develop.
