Taurus 21° (May 11)

Today a BOH representative will show up on the property expecting a major environmental issue which of course there wasn’t. The people across the road are back adding to the stresses. I’m not going to get anything done today I’m afraid other than a little writing: The fourth astrological house under Cancer’s rule kicks off the second quadrant of the zodiac, the threshold being at the very bottom, the nadir, of the cosmic wheel. This sweet spot in an astrological chart points to our most inner nature, and the fourth house is thus that of our home, domesticity and private life, something in particular Cancer man has a natural and enviable ability to cultivate. He carefully picks and chooses interests, hobbies, sports that involve little to no interaction with others, except perhaps a single coach, trainer or instructor whose undivided attention he can command. He is covetous of time spent as such for the likely reason that he will be otherwise largely dedicated to responsibilities and care of others on the domestic front, which falls under his sign’s astrological fourth-house rule. Family is arguably more important to this man than any other. And he possesses the perfect temperament for playing house husband, should his partner be more professionally engaged, and as rearer of children. Still he will plot out a path for creative or intellectual fulfillment and bide his time until it becomes his turn to prioritize career, which he will do with tunnel vision and the power of a newly freed, heretofore coiled spring. Though, Cancer man is the least likely to be among them, the first thing we tell clients who come to see us for the first time is that the Sun placement in their charts really signifies the hero’s journey, that it to say the you whom you are becoming. The Sun signifies completion, a full circle surrounding a central dot, which symbolizes the individual in a perfectly centered sphere of their own making, their sense of fulfillment and wholeness. Such that, whether you believe people incarnate as particular signs to experience and work through the energies and influences and endemic life-lessons inherent in certain signs for the purposes of a more soul-level evolution, or not, you might more readily accept our simpler notion that, if you’re born with Sun in Cancer then your ideas surrounding what constitutes wholeness, fulfillment, completion, success, even, would be described in Cancerian terms. For Cancer man, the hero’s journey is that much more real as he specifically draws on the archetype, the word, hero, like the name Heracles (Roman: Hercules), meaning the “beloved of Hera,” the queen-goddess of women and marriage. Cancer man, is more accurately, the embodiment of hero-prince. For the male Moonchild, it is a journey toward an ever-increasing sense of security and protection for himself, his partner, as well as his family. A life well lived is one where he can document, in brass tacks, a steep climb from the quality of life he was born into, to that which he cultivated for himself and his loved ones. Rarely conspicuously consumptive, material trappings are nonetheless essential to the Cancer, who counts his successes in rings of the cash register, More than most, Cancer man goes from (what he considers) rags to riches. Fulfillment entails achieving a certain nobility of spirit, giving off a particularly subtle aristocratic air of insouciance. Happiness for him is to live worry free, which he will come to learn is unrelated to the breadth of his financial portfolio. Progeny is typically paramount to Cancer man, and a sense of completion will come from leaving behind a legacy, meanwhile living surrounded by souvenirs, steeped in memory, nostalgia being yet another aspect of the astrological fourth house. A sense of togetherness is of prime importance, even if it means sacrificing autonomy. Cancer man seeks the providence of pride in himself and his loved ones whom he’s cosmically designed to regard as extensions of himself. His biggest challenge tends to be coming clean about his feelings, especially those which might threaten to sick him. He can be extremely hard on himself and also expect much from family and children in whom he sees himself glaringly reflected.
