What is a Natal Chart?
Your 'Sun Sign' describes where the Sun was at the exact moment that you were born and describes how you will shine in Life.
KEYWORDS: Shine, strength, will, dominate, individuality, spirit, creative energy, children, power, masculine, paternal, authority, leadership, ambition, pride, self-expression, determine and confidence.
You were born during a particular calendar month, so the Sun was moving through a particular sign (constellation). This same constellation shows up at the same point in time every year, therefore it is your Sun Sign a.k.a. Zodiac Sign.
The Sun moves into Cancer on Wednesday, June 21, 2017 at 12:24 AM EDT, which is the day of the Sumer Solstice and the longest day of the year. Everybody has Cancer in their natal chart . . EVERYONE! Even if your sun sign is not Cancer, you still have Cancer somewhere in your natal chart. Depending on where Cancer lands in your chart, this would be the type of energy you would bring into that house.
Notice that the glyph for Cancer represents what appears to be a 69. Actually this represents the breasts with arms wrapped around the body. This is because Cancer is the most nurturing sign, represents the breasts, mother, home and family. Cancer's also dig in the sand; therefore Cancer's are natural-born gardeners. Because Cancer's represent the home, they are also patriotic in defending their home country. They are the natural rulers of the 4th house of home, family, domestic affairs, land, natural resources, ecology, gardening, landscaping, real estate, property, the biological and psychological foundation, the mother and childhood. They are excellent caretakers.
Cancer's are intuitive, patient, tenacious, conscientious, economical, domestic, maternal, kind, devoted, nurturing, versatile, sociable, sympathetic and patriotic. They are also protective, tenacious, moody, emotionally sensitive and watery with strong roots. They can also be overly protective, unwilling to let go, timid and reclusive.
This Cancer energy has the motto of, "I feel therefore I am." Folks, this is 'extremely sensitive' energy. All too often this energy is channeled inappropriately into emotional feelings and moods instead of intuitive feelings and gut instincts. Oh this is so juicy I can hardly stand how truly exciting it is for all of you once you get, the get. 'The get' is realizing the difference between the mischannel and the appropriate channel. When this energy is channeled inappropriately it is very easy to detect because this is the sign that takes everything very personal. Example -- this would be like telling a Cancer Sun Sign how something bothers you and then the Cancer Sun Sign says, "I don't do that." Well, you didn't say the person did do that (whatever it is) but yet they take your words personal as if you were talking about them. Oh that's so sensitive!
Cancer has a naturally defensive posture when you think about it. Symbolized by the crab, when it comes out of its shell, it will dance across the sand in a back and forth motion. One wrong move and up on its hind legs it will go and the pinchers will prepare to strike. It doesn't take much to get a crab to defend its home turf. This is the same way Cancer the Sun Sign is with their family. While Cancer may be the first person in the family to bad mouth a family member, no one else better say anything bad about that family member. Certainly this could be a true statement for any Sun Sign but the intensity of it is stronger with Cancer. In fact, Cancer will defend a family member so strongly that they would probably even take the rap and go to jail for another family member. Protecting their domestic security, home and family, mean everything to them. In fact, the home is so important to a Cancer that it would be hard to find a Cancer who isn't set on owning their own home. They need to own a home like a Gemini needs a phone, Taurus needs exquisite tasting food and a Capricorn needs a job.
Cancer energy also tends to over-share their emotional baggage. There are just some things that should be on a 'need to know' basis instead of telling everyone you know. Mercury is in Cancer during the entire time the Sun is in Cancer and solidifies the need to keep family secrets, SECRET! Cancer's are extremely attracted to 'kindness,' which could be their downfall because a seemingly kind person may not have Cancer's best interest at heart. This kindness can make Cancer spill the beans. Cancer is easily moved and manipulated by kindness. Remember this about yourself because somewhere in your Natal Chart or Solar Return you do have Cancer and this tendency will likely show up in the area of your chart where Cancer resides.
Cancer is most definitely a very materialistic sign, which is much different than the materialistic signs of Capricorn and Taurus. Cancer is attracted to materialism in a sentimental way. This could be attaching to gifts that were given to them or through family heirlooms, memoribilia, nostalgia, antiques and the like. Cancer is the hoarder and accumulator of the zodiac. This is also a form of security as they have all of their comforts around them at all times and typically on display. They are collectors of collectibles. Cancer's LOVE garage sales where they go to others homes and pick through their personal things. Those pinchers want to dig and grab, which is also why Cancer is the gardner and landscaper of the zodiac. It is also Cancer who will go through your medicine cabinet. They just can't help it because they were born to dig in the sand and root around.
Cancer does have a tough exterior, which can easily be seen by their exo-skeleton (skeleton on the outside of the body). Their exterior is hard but their interior is soft and mushy. Cancer can Love almost too much, to the point of putting up with bad behavior from their partner, to Loving dangerously like O.J. Simpson. Just remember, too much of a Good thing . . . isn't. There are probably more Cancer's who put up with bad partner behavior than any other sign.
Back to "I feel therefore I am." With so many planets in Cancer right now, including Jupiter in Cancer, this is the best time to work on channeling your feelings into intuition rather than channeled into an emotional freak show. That is a 'tough sell' for a Cancer who has a 'tough shell' and who is driven by their emotions wearing their heart on their sleeve, but it must be done. Everyone is going to have to work on their level of sensitivity and learn how 'not to' take everything so personal, especially where Cancer resides in your personal natal chart. Just remember when you are taking things personal, then you are missing the intuitive hit. Click your Sun Sign below to read your Daily, Monthly, Yearly and Generational Horoscope.
