CANCER

18 Oct

June 21 – July 22

Cancer is Latin for crab and it is commonly represented as such. The creation of the constellation is explained in Greek mythology by the short-lived association of Karkinos with one of the Twelve Labors of Hercules, in which Hercules battled the multi-headed Lernaean Hydra. Hera had sent Karkinos to distract Hercules and put him at a disadvantage during the battle, but Hercules quickly dispatched the creature by kicking it with such force that it was propelled into the sky. Other accounts had Karkinos grabbing onto Hercules’ toe with its claws, but Hercules simply crushed the crab underfoot. Hera, grateful for Karkinos’ heroic effort, gave it a place in the sky.

Family matters will always play an important part in your life. You are classified as the “caretaker” of the Zodiac. Much of your success depends on the awareness and ability to use both the moon and your powerful intuition. You are distinctively gifted with real estate and food (cooking or eating). Lunar children have a solid sense of organization and have inherited strong managerial gifts. You are a perfectionist and are quite critical at times. Plants and green appeals to you, and you tend to worry too much about health to the point of becoming a vegetarian.
