Key qualities of a Cancer Baby

Born approximately between June 20th to July 22nd with variation depending on time, year and location.

The Cancer SUN Sign
The Cancer Sun child has come into the world with the developing personality of a nurturing, intuitive, caring, self-protective being. The sign of the Crab has a very soft and vulnerable inner with a hard outer shell to protect feelings and emotions which can be overwhelming. Born with the "mothering" instinct this child knows how to care for others and feels most secure with family and friends. Also they can be moody as their feelings fluctuate often, and they will need alone, private time to refuel. With a vivid imagination and strong intuition, your Cancer child will react to the emotional vibe of the environment. So, its important to keep a routine, and  provide safe and secure feelings through familiar habits, people, and surroundings. Nurture your child's caring nature and encourage and support the expression of feelings to help them grow and thrive.

What about The MOON sign in children?
The SUN sign represents "personality" which takes time to develop. A baby may not express these qualities during the first years of life. The MOON energy which describes our inner state of feelings, safety and security is more prevalent in babies and young children. These characteristics and others which help us nurture their growth can be understood through a natal or birth chart reading.

The magic of the new moon

The moon cycles through each of the 12 astrological signs
each month. The new moon brings a freshness and a particular
energy symbolized by its sign. Today, July 4th, the new moon is
in the sign of Cancer, a symbol of new birth, of nurture, of the great mother,
of caring, and intuition. On this occasion we can harness this energy
by focusing on what we want to give birth to,what we want to begin.
What do you want to create at this time in your life?

Fate vs. Conscious Action

“When an inner situation is not made conscious it appears as fate”. Jung

If we are not aware of our "inner situation " as can be seen in our chart, we will experience life as things that happen to us from the outside.

Summer Solstice

As Joseph Campbell stated; "the goal of life is to match your heartbeat to the heartbeat of the universe, to match your nature with Nature”. Today’s Summer Solstice is the first day of summer; the longest day and the shortest night. Its an auspicious time for opening up to the Creative within. Summertime when the Sun is at its peak; a time to nurture your uniqueness by matching the summer light and energy to our lives.

Changes

As you move through life, the inevitable changes that you
experience relate directly to your chart and the life cycle
you are in at any given moment.

Yoga & Astrology

It is interesting how yoga and astrology are connected. The
Sanskrit word, Hatha Yoga, can be interpreted as the
yoking or union of the Sun(HA) and the Moon(THA). The yoga
postures help us balance our masculine Sun energy,  and
our feminine Moon energy.  Our astrological
chart describes the nature of these archetypal symbols and
brings a new awareness that can move us toward a more
fulfilling and balanced life.
