The Sun just entered the sign of Cancer on June 21, the Summer Solstice when we celebrate the sacred marriage of Heaven and Earth. The Sun brings the North long days of light and heat, and yet Cancer is a cardinal water sign, a water sign in motion, pulled in tides by its ruler, the Moon. Cancer brings us moisture, the nurturing rains to help the crops grow; the psychic waters that stir the soul.
A New Moon in Cancer is the time to plant some emotional seeds. Cancer symbolizes the Great Mother of Life, the Cosmic Womb. Out of this womb the whole world was born, both physically and psychically. Cancer symbolizes the movement of the oceans, the stirring of the waters that creates new Life. The symbol of Cancer can either represent the female and male seeds that create new life or a Mother’s breasts, which feed new life.
Cancer is all about creativity, which is a hallmark of our uniqueness. Our children are unique expressions of both Mom and Dad; our creative abilities express essential aspects of our soul—our feelings about life. Our watery, psychic depths can give birth to the Divine Child within us—there is no limit on our creativity. It all depends on the health of our emotional body. The more emotionally wounded we feel, the less likely we will allow ourselves to conceive and give birth to what’s within us.
Each year we are given the opportunity to re-birth our emotional body during the month when the Sun is in the sign of Cancer. The Sun symbolizes our identity, and in its yearly cycle, we pick up and/or shed parts of our personality that serve our life’s purpose. When the Sun is in Cancer, it provides us with the opportunity to re-birth our psychic awareness of our essential Self. We ask ourselves during Aries, “Who am I?”, during Taurus, “What do I have?” and during Gemini “What do I think?” Now in Cancer we get to ask ourselves, “What do I feel about my life? And what am I going to do about it?”

Feelings and intuitions, dreams and imagination are ways to connect with our Soul. The Soul’s language is symbolic, and if we want to life a soul-full life, we need to include It’s perceptions in our ego calculations. Therefore, it is up to each of us to learn our Mother tongue if we want to live happy and fulfilled lives. Our left-brain, patriarchal rationality has been high-jacked by ‘the economy’ and all the attendant wars, worries and wasted time discussing things that it so enjoys. We have forgotten the power of our Soul. It’s time to reclaim it.
