At the high noon of the year, Summer Arrives
The Seasonal Dance of Summer lights up our homes--and our hearts!
When Spring comes to an end and the Sun reaches its’ highest point in the sky, the seasonal dance of Summer begins.
It was Spring’s burst of dominant light, that awakened the spirit of Aries. This inspired many to pursue a new path of personal discovery. The energies were then turned inward, to sense the manifesting delights of the green Earth of Taurus. The season concluded as the mutable forces of Gemini assembled the sensual data into the conceptual arrangements, that would allow all creatures to begin a new dimension of creation.
Now, as the Cancer Sun dances in a new direction—it is time to begin the task of understanding how to interact with our environment–and find a place of comfort to call our home!
Ride the Waves & Currents with a Cancer Friend
At the Summer Solstice, the Cancer Sun begins its’ descent in the sky, as it starts a new quadrant in the chart. With this shift into waning light, the previous expansive urges of Gemini are countered by the internally directed forces of Cancer’s cardinal water. In this universal solvent, the array of ideas and thoughts merge together—to form the emotional affinities of one’s feelings. These sensitivities enable each individual to relate to all things in his or her personal surroundings.
At the high noon of the year, it is time to find a base, to protect one’s self from the shifting currents. There, one can seek the cool shade of a neighboring tree grove, or take a dip in the nearby beach or lake— to escape the heat of the Summer Sun. From this base, many of us will find the confidence to express the visions of Leo—and then create the dramatic enhancements of Virgo—that will make our environment a delightful place to play.
Since your Cancer friends are born in this key month of polar redirection, they often have an extraordinary to feel the movements and rhythms in Nature’s changing seasons—as well as the shifts in the daily tides and the monthly phases of the Moon. (These are the three key light cycles that regulate the biorhythms of life).
So, if you are feeling out of sync, you need to spend more time with one of these sensitive souls. These caring friends can help you ride each wave to its crest, and then return with the receding currents. It is this lesson in the Seasonal Dance of Cancer that will help you to define the base of comfort, that will inspire you to catch another ascending wave, express your newfound desires and create create the tasks that will make this a better place to live.
Sadly, there are some crabs who lose this dear sense of belonging. As they become paranoid and insecure, their hands will transform into the pinching craws of a terrified crab. To help these individuals heal their fearful emotions, just remind them that they have loving friends and family, who appreciate the nurturing service they have given to others. This comforting feeling is what they need, to move happily with the currents of Nature, once again.
Rulerships Associated with Cancer
Cancer rules the breasts and the upper torso of the human body. Appropriately, these are the nurturing souls who mother and feed the world. This rulership of this part of the body also affects Cancer’s body language. Watch how the large torso tilts forward and then wobbles backwards, as their tiny feet shuffle back and forth to keep their top heavy shells in balance.
As early observers of human nature watched the liquid expressions of their Cancer friends, they discovered that their daily emotional ups and downs tended to follow the daily lunar tidal changes. They also saw how their emotional makeup changed its’ character every 2 1/2 days—when the Moon transited into another Zodiac sign! That is why the Moon was assigned to be the ruler of the Zodiac sign Cancer.
Appropriately, these Children of the Moon (who play in this seasonal dance) have a gift for understanding how these lunar patterns affect the spiritual, mental, physical and emotional states of their friends and family. Furthermore, this Moon cycle affects all of us.

Celebrities with Cancer Sun Signs
Similar features and gestures can be seen in most Cancer Sun Signs, however, they are more obvious in those who share a Cancer Sun and a Cancer Moon. Thusly, other Sun Signs with a Cancer Moon will often display the features of the Crab.
Such people tend to display the rhythm and cadence of water when they project the expressive rays of their Suns and/or reflect the reactive beams of their Moons. Their Sun projections often bring “an outward surge”, while the lunar responses tend to suggest the energies of a receding tide. With the currents of their turbulent roller coaster rides, we see why some Crabs become so emotional.
