About the Cancer Sign
June 21 - July 22
Ruling Planets: The Moon
Symbol: The Crab
Life pursuit: Intimacy and constant reassurance
Secret desire: feel safe (emotionally, spiritually, romantically, financially)
Born under the sign of Cancer, and ruled by the very mysterious Moon, makes these people a true Zodiac enigma. Constantly contradicting themselves, and seemingly all over the place. Compassionate and very caring with friends, loved ones, and family, but they can really hurt feelings with their jealous remarks, thanks to their moodiness. Keeping with the contradicting theme here, they can be eccentric, but also very insecure about how others view them.
Like their symbol The Crab, they can appear tough, and hard on the outside, but underneath the shell is a soft side, giving these moon children a very special gift.
The Moon goes through many changes, and phases, just like Cancer's. Even though they may remain in one place, life does not stand still for this sign. Living within their own internal ocean of emotion, their link with the moon makes it impossible to remain even keep from day to day. This proverbial yo-yo of sorts can feel totally different about certain things in life from one day to the next. Say one thing, do another, this is part of their irresistible charm.
Love and romance are very important to this sign, actually more than anything else. No sign romances better, and no sign takes a harder hit during breakups. Mysterious, alluring, fascinating.
History Of Astrology
The Babylonians are credited with the beginnings of Astrology. Their astrological charts helped them predict certain trends in the seasons as well as celestial events, and astronomical phenomenons. They could predict the cyclical phases of the the Moon, solar, and lunar eclipses, transits and occultations, planetary oppositions and conjunctions, and more. Back 2,000 years ago Astrology and Astronomy were the same science.
Babylonian Astrology was soon introduced to the Greeks early in the 4th century B.C. and, through the studies of great scholars such as Plato, Aristotle, and others, astrology came to be highly regarded as a science. It was eventually embraced by the Romans and Arabs. The Roman Zodiacal signs are still used today. Astrology soon spread throughout the entire world.
Astrology was later designed to bring a sense of order out of apparent chaos, it was utilized to predict weather patterns such as natural disasters and agricultural purposes. It was broadened to predict many human affairs such as war and even used to as a form of counsel for kings, emperors, and in time us.
Horoscopes Coming To Be
Using your horoscope chart the relative position of the Sun, Moon, Plants, and stars at a specific time and place of your birth (numerology). Astrologers measure it as “sidereal” time, meaning time reckoned from the motion of the earth (or a planet) relative to the distant stars (rather than with respect to the Sun).
Proper interpretation of the chart is both an art and a science. When done properly, it reveals personality insights, sign compatibility, current trends, and more. Horoscopes should only be entrusted to a highly trained and accredited Astrologer.
