How to Treat your Cancer

.


Your Cancer man or maiden is an especially kind and nurturing soul. Cancers are observant and empathetic. Just as the Moon fills with light from the Sun, your oceanic Cancer absorbs energy from those around her, deeply feeling their needs and desires. Your Cancer, like a warm mama, loves to fulfill you and make you comfortable. Home, food, garden, nursery, work - all become the loving charge of Cancer's love and care.

Sometimes your Cancer becomes overwhelmed with concern for others, and needs to take refuge in a protective shell to be shielded from negative influences. You may find your Cancer either hiding out or complaining sadly. It's just that he is filled to the brim with external woes, and just can't please everyone. Such a frustration!

For Cancer, the Moon who rules over his heart waxes and wanes, grows full with wild lunatic ravings and joy, and shrinks into that dark place where brooding and sulking can set in. Emotions are inconstant, but so entertaining for the lucky one who has a Cancer for a friend or partner!

The Cancer needs to feel needed. Don't hesitate to ask your Cancer for help, even if she seems downhearted. It makes her feel alive. Be sure to confide your deepest feelings and desires to your Cancer. It gives him the opportunity to be more a part of you, and strive to fulfill your happiness.

Feed your Cancer with a well stocked kitchen, room for a garden, pets, cozy decor and children. Take your Cancer to the water or ocean often. Allow your Cancer opportunities to use the deep imagination and creativity within. Be kind and patient when the Moon wreaks havoc on his moods. Make sure your Cancer has privacy when needed, and feels safe and protected. Screen his calls! Make sure her locks are secure! You will be rewarded with joyful, shining moonbeam smiles, and loving comforts of home to rival the most doting of mothers!

How to Treat your Leo

.


Your Leo is independent - yet family oriented; highly organized and efficient - yet demanding of others. Leo is King or Queen of the castle, and wants everyone to know it! Shining brightly through that magnificent mane is a great joy for living... a completely self- contained world of fun and creativity. Leo wants the outer world to be just as shiny as she strives to be, and will go to any lengths to achieve it.

Your Leo needs to be happy with how the world perceives him. If enough praise is not forthcoming, you will have a sulky, growly lion! Make sure you take time to compliment, heavily. And please don't criticize overtly - make sly little helpful suggestions instead. Leo is very sensitive, but bounces back easily because he can't stand unhappiness. Life is too fun, and creative opportunities too tempting for Leo to be out of the action for long.

Remember that you are part of your Sun-God or Goddess' world. Your reputation is just as important to your Leo as her own. Do your best to look good, sound dignified and make your space organized and attractive. Sweep the dirt out of public view, and don't forget to comb your hair!

Feed your Leo with joyful, sunny surroundings, the laughter of children, organized spaces and free-time to roam. Keep competition far away from your very territorial animal. Shower her with cuddly affection, your undying love and devotion, and most of all PRAISE. You will be rewarded with a glowing soul whose heart radiates with blissful devotion to your needs. Your Leo is sure to passionately love, defend and protect you. It's his job!

The Moon in the Tarot

The Moon is associated with Cancer in the Tarot

~ Going Within ~
The Moon represents the emotional or astral body - the soul's memory of all earthly feeling. This is where the deepest human feelings reside, in the Moon's play of light and shadow, her dance with the Sun.

In many decks, the Moon is portrayed as two dogs baying at the Moon, one wild - representing our primal, uncontrolled emotional responses, and the other tame - to show the civilized restraint that we as social beings are capable of.

Imagine you are struck by a strong emotion... surprise, sadness, shock, fear, anger - whatever feels most familiar to you. Now feel the actual feeling - and think about your outer, visible response. While some of us react immediately, many people instinctively close up and hide. Often, we need time to withdraw from others - to go within and sort out the feelings welling up inside. Sometimes there is outright embarrasment.

The Moon is internal, thoughtful - busy getting in touch with the swirl and tumble of feelings within her. In astrological terms, she is Zodiacal Cancer, the crab (another key image in this card) - whose moods change with the lunar phases and who often hides in her shell. She cares deeply for others, and in caring can become entangled in their needs - losing track of her own. Or, she can drown piteously in her own problems - tangled in a sea of emotion.

However she may react, there is a withdrawal from the world on some level. Even in anger one tends to close up and shut everyone else out. The emotions take hold, seen or unseen, and we are essentially all alone. With the Moon, we go within, and dare not let anyone - outside our most intimate circle - into our innermost souls, and even they may feel left out for a time. Fear can creep in if we have difficulty coming to terms with the feelings that hold us in their grip.

But while we are immersed in her ocean, we may also see things more clearly through the reflective forces of the Moon as she reaches in and touches us in our solitude. Relationships come into focus, and those things we've kept hidden even to ourselves are illuminated in a dreamy misty light - and beg for attention. This is the time to take action - when the lunar forces are at their peak, and we are sure, through and through, about what needs must be met. The Moon is an essential part of you. She is the concern that wakes you up at night, the nagging desire that fuels your imagination, and the primal, natural forces of emotion that keep you alive. You may hide from her, howl at her or hail her with joy, but you cannot deny her her power!

The Outer Planets - Chiron, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto and the Lunar Nodes
~^. .^~

.


Uranus in Pisces! ... Uranus will stay in the Sign of the Fish 'til 2011! Spiritual Revolution you say?? Yes, that would describe it well. What can we expect with Uranus in Pisces? Perhaps our ideas about death, sacrifice, the fantastic and impossible, transcendence and service to humanity will take some dramatic and innovative turns. We can hope that humanitarianism will take on new meaning and purpose, and that service to others may become a more integral part of our social order. With this placement, Uranus can become quite reclusive or fanatical. Scientists who may have been hiding out for years in research can bring new and surprising inventions and discoveries into our midst, and Political Messiahs may come out of the woodwork. With Uranus and Neptune in mutual reception - they will rely upon each other more than usual, and herald perhaps a renewed and revolutionary (Uranus) vision for humanity (Neptune) The cost may be a certain amount of turmoil and confusion regarding just where we are going for humanity, and will probably not be without conflict.

Neptune in Aquarius (til 2012) is helping to set our expressions of love and creativity into positive, innovative motion. A change in the prevailing style in movies, fashion and art will be seen in the months and years to come - probably bringing much more in the realm of the unusual, shocking, rebellious, and inter-cultural.

Pluto in Sagittarius speaks of honesty. While Pluto remains here (till 2008), we are all challenged to be true to ourselves and others, and to accept and nurture the rich diversity of humanity and our animal companions on this earth. The world is our family, and those who are not willing to find, or at least look for the wisdom of the ages - reflected in many ways through many religions, traditions and philosophies - will surely suffer a crisis of faith.

The powerful Neptune/Pluto septile, exact on Dec 1, 2006 and Feb. 21, 2007 will last (going in and out of close orb) into 2011! For those of us who are very creative, tremendous inspiration can bring influential, explosive, mind-blowing creations. In love - the potential for making inspired changes is heightened - yet there also exists the possibility of getting lost in confusion. Avoid falling into a pit of despair, or indulging in self-destructive activities. Getting nowhere fast? Look for Creative and Healthy, Inspired, Loving outlets to save your skin! Get involved in helping others.... this is especially important now! Neptune/Pluto can bring a fanaticism wthat has not been seen since the last such aspect at the beginning of WWII. Yet - this aspect is also very positive for creating lasting, humanitarian changes throughout the world.

The North and South Nodes are now on the Pisces/Virgo axis ('til 12/19/07). This node placement brings a greater sense of right and wrong with the world and humanity on a grand scale, with issues of escape, sacrifice, anhilation, and merging spiritually with others coming to the fore karmically and within our relationships. Christianity and religion in general may be at issue perhaps even more than usual.

Let us hope that, regardless of one's religious allegiance, all who feel true love in their hearts will continue to spread this light of love, pray for our planet, and find a way to peace - however that may be.

Chiron in Aquarius... This archetype of human compassion will be passing nonstop through Aquarius from January 06 til Feb. 2011, bringing a period of higher inspiration in the realm of healing. We may look forward to greater cooperation worldwide in the healing sciences, and perhaps going back to tradition - those time honored ways that our ancestors enjoyed and practiced in harmony with nature. Perhaps we may find more and more "health" foods (ie unaltered and unprocessed) on our grocery shelves, greater acceptance of mind-body healing approaches, and some brave new ideas to surface, too.

Mewsings from Venus & Mars... July 2007
plus the Future Forecast for LOVE!

Venus in Leo - 'til July 14 is a tigress in love... she is loyal, fun loving, and will fight for her loved ones. Her creativity and organizational skills will shine brighter while Venus is in Leo, and she will strive to make herself and her surroundings look their very best.

Mars in Taurus until August 7 is after comfort and security. Males may seem more stubborn and self-serving, but highly sensual. There could be some clashes with Venus in Leo, so it would be wise to focus on commonalities and not let differences bog you down.

Venus in Virgo on July 15th is fastidious and choosy. You might find her tearing the house apart and redoing it - not to mention cleaning furiously. She will show her knack for identifying imperfections, and will get along just fine with earthy Mars in Taurus. Sensuality will rule with Mars and Venus in earth signs!

 
FUTURE FORECAST FOR LOVE
The first week of July, Mars bi-quintile Jupiter with Venus conjunct Saturn brings optimistism and energy to committed relationships. Saturn opposing Neptune can bring clashes between reality and fantasy, or conversely - opportunities to turn fantasies into reality!

during the second week of July, Venus trine Pluto with Mars octile the power planet can bring irritably powerful desires. Females may be more receptive if things are going well. If not - be careful!

During the third week of July, when Mars squares Chiron and sextiles Uranus... look for an increase in healing energy - karma can bring clashes and breakthroughs

During the last week of July, with Mars biquintile Pluto and square Neptune/Saturn, power struggles can turn serious. It will be very important to ignore gossip and get to the heart of the matter. Those who are artistic/creative may find that greater effort sees their ideas taking shape.

~ The Big Guys ~
Jupiter in Sagittarius til 12/18/07 is in his glory, bringing tremendous energy for truth, liberty, justice, expansion, increase, humor, intelligence and broad-mindedness. Jupiter conjuncts Pluto at 28 deg. Sag. early to mid Dec. '07 (exact 12/12/07), which I believe will trigger great spiritual/moral outspokenness and fiery debate, as well as increased activity in research and discovery. I see this as a sort of "last chance" to speak your truth - then make your peace. As long as finding common moral ground is the goal, all will be well. Pompous self-righteousness won't further any goals, but there may be some of that. Venus will follow (conjuncting Pluto) in Jan. 08 with Mars opposite - another opportunity for mending broken relationships. It won't be much longer til Pluto is in Capricorn and honesty and flexibility give way to political models that are harsh and/or set in stone. While Jupiter is in Sag, we have time to communicate profusely and broaden our perceptions before they become the status quo.

Saturn in Leo from July 17 '05 til Sept. 2, '07 is likely to bring forth leaders and institutions that shine with dignity, pride, love, admiration, and if we're not careful - vanity and power-tripping. We may feel more comfortable witnessing public displays of wealth, bravado, power and drama. Saturn in Leo can whip us into shape... the right leaders under this Saturn can be spiritually inspiring, highly moral and great lovers of their people. The benevolent leader with Leo qualities puts his people above all, and loves them as his own family. Let us visualize these kinds of leaders coming forward, into the light. and making a real difference in our world!
