The Sun is in Cancer from the Summer Solstice on June 20th until July 22nd. The Moon, which rules the sign of Cancer, symbolizes your emotions, feelings and security needs. During the Cancer Cycle of Nurturing you seek comfort...that which is familiar within your family circle or your base of operations...your environment. During this part of the annual Solar Cycle you're examining the very foundation of your life. Before you can succeed in any other area of your life you must first recognize your own needs and honor them. Take time now to ask yourself how secure you feel about the path that you're currently on. You must be willing to consider your own comfort zone...really burrow into your deepest psychological core to discover your own needs. You will then feel more able to nurture others...those who contribute to your feeling of aliveness.
Love does not measure; it just gives. ~ Mother Teresa
To understand your parents' love you must raise children yourself. ~ Chinese Proverb
Happiness grows at our own firesides. ~ Douglas Jerrold
