Gemini 9° (May 29)

A Bob Marley morning. The rain last night blew the basement door open. Now to work: Charity beginning at home, which is all the more central to the Cancer woman, that which the Crab is designed to give, foremost, to her family is a sense of safety and security without their ever being stifled. She inspires self-sufficiency in her children, especially, teaching by example, or she should do, that so long as one acts from a place of good intentions, one need never have regret. Think of Cinderella with her ashy name pointing to her humbled state of personal ruin, run ragged by mean girls, tormented, rejected, disenfranchised and alone. She may feel sad, but never bitter or revengeful. Her loneliness is what inspires longing. And it is in her solitude that she creates sacred space where that longing summons her higher power, prince and palace. She isn’t so codependent as to invite her stepfamily to live with her; she owes them nothing because she only ever gave to them. (She does forgive them, which is key.) In a world of dysfunctional families, the type from which the Cancer woman typically comes, the Crab is the most expert at taking strict inventory of such patterns that she is determined not to repeat in the home she creates for herself and her progeny. There is much from her history and home of origin that she is determined to leave in the past in building her future. Making no show of it, it should come as no surprise, given her Moon rulership, that she is most comfortable in her role as mother, which she tends to play, to some degree, to her partner as well. Though she is rarely not romantically linked dating back to earliest teenage, Cancer woman tends to marry relatively late in life, typically not until after sowing her fair share of wild oats; and she is inclined to marry, or otherwise commit long-term to someone some, often many, years her junior. Doing so isn’t necessarily a recipe for her being the more central and dominant figure in the household, but more times than not, this is exactly the case. Her partner tends to defer to her on most matters, while she plays the wise woman role to the hilt. Her partner might act like something of a big kid, a youthful spirit appealing to the Cancer, but any serious symptoms of arrested development will be treated with heavy doses of tough love and cleared up without delay. Everybody pulls their weight in the family run by the Crab, who will turn into a giant one if you cross her one to many times. 

To view the original Sabian Symbol themed 2015 Cosmic Blague corresponding to this day: Flashback! The degree point of the Sabian Symbol may at times be one degree higher than the one listed here. The Blague portrays the starting degree of for this day ( 0°,  for instance), as I typically post in the morning, while the Sabian number corresponds to the end point (1°) of that same 0°-1° period.
