Cancer: The Crab
Cancer: The Crab
Thursday, April 11, 2013
Greetings, Cancer! I’ve got lots of good news for YOU! Are you feeling lucky? Do you sense that things are or will soon be going totally your way? Well, you’re right on the money! And money is something that’s been a great focus for you. You’ve had your wheels spinning and your money-making ideas going overtime. There is a lot to look forward to very soon and even today, right now! Let’s explore the money factor, the thing that’s been so on your mind for so long. (more…)
For the week of Monday, March 12, 2012
This is no time to let your guard down, Cancer, and no time to compromise. Positive Cancers will understand what I’m talking about and negative Cancers will not like what I have to say. We continue. By the way, I always add this admonition because not all signs are positive and some are very negative. I will say that when a water sign, especially a woman, especially a Cancer, are negative, they are the worst I’ve ever seen. Right now there are some very negative Cancers doing what they do and they know who they are. We continue, none the less, I write for the positive people and not for those who are negative at all. Namaste.
Cancer, you’ve been battling what seems to be the ultimate ugly sea creature. Sometimes you feel you just cannot go on and somewhere inside yourself you remind yourself that you are good, caring, fair, kind, and deserving of the good you’ve been denied so many years at the hand of person, likely female (Full Moon) who should be quite out of your life by now — and that is soon coming, dear Cancer. If this does not pertain to a woman in your life it pertains to a situation that you will recognize, anyway. Remember these horoscopes are written for all Cancers as I cannot possibly know when and where you were born. With that said, again, I continue. You’ve been quite under someone or something’s thumb whether it be a personal, familiar, or job type relationship and that is soon to be over, in fact, this should have been over and done with before the end of last year but that matter was quite out of your hands due to the next person bearing a grudge. Just remember to NEVER wish ill on another person, remember that vengeance is GOD’S and His alone, and so long as you never wish harm on another you are fine. There are some Cancer natives who are due a dose of their own medicine and I’ll be quite frank: what goes around, comes around — or vice versa — and in this case what we reap we will sow for decades to come. I wish you all blessings and to those negative types, I wish you God’s peace and mercy.
The aspects you’ve been dealing with are not as tough as the sea creature you’ve been battling. This is quite remarkable considering this is a time in your life when certain situations are going to come to quite an end and never to repeat. For the good little Cancers, it is a good thing and for the bad little Cancers, you see what I mean. This is a time, again, when we are going to reap what we have sown. Mercury is now Retrograde and it’s not going to be as bad for you as you think: it’s actually going to work for you, in your favor, on many levels. You’ve tried to sever a situation, whether home, familial, work, relationship related and it’s been like dragging a two ton bowling ball around for years — possibly decades — but the final arrangement and agreement seems to never reach fruition though its reached fruition many times in the past two to three years where even you saw the writing on the wall and were formulating a plan. At this time, again, it is not your fault that an agreement has not been reached: it’s the next person. No worries, this person’s energy and influence is waning right now with the waning of the Full Moon on March 8th: this was your personal culmination point and the writing on the wall for the next person, your personal tormentor. Cancer’s have been dealing with some health issues of late but nothing much to worry about, again, the stress of dealing with Two-Ton Tess have worn you down like Nessie riding atop your back! That’s soon over and you will find the end of April, mid to late, to be favorable for you to finalize agreement and you would do well to sign nothing until that time and my preference is for you to WAIT until the end of April, if at all possible, even if you must create the delays to effect this. Don’t get into any trouble doing this but you know how to be creative when you’re up against a wall. There’s no real wall for you now, consider it just a series of technical difficulties that have been haywire for a few years. In this case, these difficulties, again, will work in your favor.
My thoughts are that though Mercury Retrograde is present, the Grand Trine in earth signs will help your water sign in two ways: first of all, we know that water feeds earth and that earth grows from water. The Grand Trine planets, especially Uranus (surprises) will help you with some 11th hour surprises that WILL work in your favor — not in the favor of the very negative opposition you’ve been dealing with. You will find that the other person who has been causing you the headaches for so long and who has created this stupid spiral of negativity and grudge has very much cut off her (Full Moon) nose to spite her face and she will deal with the repercussions that seem to stem from decades ago. I won’t split hairs here but this is a long standing situation. The Grand Trine also will help you with Jupiter (planet of good luck) and Venus (love and finances, also, usually surprises in your favor), and also with Pluto in the Trine you will find that this old, long standing, somewhat historical situation will come to and end exactly with the same effect it would have had at the end of the year, again, with that next person losing quite a lot and you wiping your slate clean, per se.
The things of the past, like Taurus is advised, need to be laid to rest once and for all. It’s okay to consider the past but only insofar as it pertains to the present, perhaps things you want to do with your life and things you wish to never repeat. So long as you are a positive little crab and not a an old nag, well, things will go well for you. Let the past go — it will never repeat — and you will soon see your detractor, opposition, and literal hater, go away, blow away like dust in the wind. Your job is to make peace with all things now while things settle themselves so that you are no longer tied or prisoner to that which has oppressed you for far too long.
Contemplate: Like the Phoenix rising from the ashes, Cancer, so will you. No matter what is lost in the transition, it doesn’t matter now. So long as you’ve been honest, fair, good, kind, and not vindictive or otherwise negative in your life — you will reap what you have sown — all things will work in your favor, your life will be restored to that which you envisioned decades ago, and your finances, dreams, goals, and even your love life will blossom like never before. Take the indications for what they are: if you are feeling good about the future, the future bodes well for you. God bless!

You’ve likely heard the song about the little ant who could move a rubber tree plant — right? The lyrics are, “Just what makes that little old ant think he’ll move that rubber tree plant — anyone knows an ant, can’t move a rubber tree plant”. Sounds negative, right? Well, if you know that song you know the refrain, “But he’s got high hopes, he’s got high hopes, he’s got high apple pie, in the sky hopes! So any time you’re gettin’ low, ‘stead of lettin’ go, just remember that ant — oops there goes another rubber tree plant!”
What does this mean, Cancer? Well, you’ve had enough and more than your share of negative people in your life telling you what you can and can’t do and what’s that all about? A bunch of negative people, that’s what! If you listen to negative people you’re going to doubt yourself and each time you do that you’re going to teach yourself to believe in others before yourself and give up. I’m not saying that’s you but I AM telling you that there are people who are so miserable they’d love to tell you that you are a failure, that you will amount to nothing, that you are bad, wrong, mean, whatever…and if you’re a positive ant you shouldn’t care what others say — you CAN move any rubber tree plant you WANT TO.
And advisory: if you are one of those negative people, and worse, if you are a Cancer and you’re negative — please keep that junk to yourself and tell yourself that you’re right or something and leave the rest of the good, positive, sweet Cancers alone because they CAN move any rubber tree plant any way they want and you are wasting your time pointing fingers. How about worry about your own rubber tree plants? Thank you.
With that said, Cancer, and with the necessary admonitions, see that I am teaching you how to say no to negativity. I just told your negative Cancers and everyone else negative to go plan in their own yard and mind their own rubber tree plants and THAT is what I want YOU to do!
Times are tough and there are good days and bad. Sometimes there are a few bad days and fewer good. But in the end, if you keep doing what you want to do and not listening to those who tell you what to do, you’re going to be better off in the long run. Sometimes we earn ourselves haters doing our own thing — so what? Who cares? Sometimes we feel a little down and remember negative words we heard as children or adults and they ring like the bomb in Hiroshima — put some ear plugs on! You need to remember that only YOU know what you want, only YOU know how to get it, and only YOU know what makes you happy. What does anything that a negative type person would say matter to you? I think you get the idea: it does not matter because they are not you. You are good, positive, and you know how to roll with the punches and keep fighting! Move along, now, where were we?
One of the next verses in that silly song that I love so much is this, “Once there was a silly old ram, thought he’d punch a hole in a dam, no one could make that ram, scram — he kept buttin’ that dam — but he’s got high hopes, he’s got high hopes, he’s got high apple pie, in the sky hopes!”
You get it? Sing it with me! “So any time you’re feelin’ bad, ‘stead of feelin’ sad, just remember that ram! Oops there goes a billion kilowatt dam.”
Contemplate: You’ve got high hopes, Cancer! You’ve got high apple pie in the SKY hopes so don’t forget those hopes when you’re feeling low and no matter what happens, just keep buttin’ that dam!
For the week of Monday, February 6, 2012
You are still on the wings of change, dear Cancer, and the changes are good for you. Your chart is lit in the areas of relationship, intimacy, communication, and personal evolution. You are advised to think carefully about any decisions you make as they will be long lasting in effect. Everything is important now and nothing is chance and should be treated with great regard. Everything you are considering should be done so with reverence, respect, and thoughtfulness. Your closest partnership, significant other, spouse, etc., is highly involved in this process and this affects your entire relationship synergy and dynamic. You are learning to blend yourself with another for a higher purpose. What this person contributes should be treated as part of the incorporation of the synergy and not as a stand alone at all. If you are not in a close personal relationship, a romantic relationship, or a business partnership, this is a time when you incorporate the duality of yourself and integrate the new you that you are becoming: you are becoming yourself and the aforementioned still applies. Treat yourself with dignity, single Cancers, treat yourself the way you would like others to treat you. This is a time of even magical change in your life and it is deep, very intense. You would do well to acknowledge this change in prayer and give thanks to God and those on the physical plane that are have helped you come to this place in yourself. You are also advised to encourage this change understanding that you are no longer who you were: you are becoming who you ARE and the past and what you were, to whatever extent, must be released accordingly. This is a time when many things about your life and your closest relationships become crystal clear and you know where you stand, where you have erred, and what must needs be done to correct your mistakes. Now that Neptune and all its mystical qualities have entered your chart sector of the High Mind, the Higher State, all things will become clear as if a fog has been lifted away from your eyes. This profound and extreme enlightenment is not to be taken casually: eschew the bad, the wrong, those that do the same, all things that are no longer within your new and newborn state. You may find this new you to be somewhat vulnerable in the world but only to the past that was your old world. The past is no longer allowed to dwell in the present temple of you though it resurfaces in the form of irritating situations or people. If you feel some sense of dichotomy, discomfort, it is indication there is more to let go than previously thought. You want peace and harmony and you want balance now. You feel you know what you want and need, what you deserve, and are willing to raise your own bar to accomplish the same. You may become anxious and restless for the rewards of this change or for validation and result but much patience is required here as you continue to reconcile past with present and present with future. The future is not always a bed of roses and you are aware of this and must protect yourself from self defeating attitudes. Good things come to those who persevere and while there is still trial and room for error, so do not be dismayed by delays, obstacles, or anything of the usual flotsam and jetsam of every day life.
Contemplate: Be patient, Cancer, the changes are good, they should be carefully thought out, and thanks must be given to God and grace that has helped you on this path. Neptune will continue to emphasize this change: continue through the usual and sundry.
For the week of Monday, January 30, 2012
Cancer, there’s been such a theme in your life for months now of identifying who is friend and who is foe — something that’s not easy for gentle, caring, trusting Cancer. The trend continues for you and it’s not a bad thing, in fact, it’s going to work wonders for you in your new incarnation. The universe, per se, has a way of helping us make course corrections in our lives when we don’t correct on our own. Sometimes the lessons are painful — no one likes hurt feelings, no one likes the idea of rejection — and certainly sweet Cancer natives do not like feeling criticized though they know how to take constructive criticism very well. But there’s a difference between criticism and back stabbing, Cancer, and now you know the difference.
The lessons you are now learning are not given to you for free: you are given these lessons as gifts and are expected to use them wisely. The consequences of not implementing what you’ve learned are often sever and I mean to mince no words here: there’s a new life waiting for you and it is not out of your reach. Consider that if you stubbornly cling to outmoded thinking, if you tenaciously clutch with your strong claws that which no longer serves you, your hands are obviously tied to whatever it is that you already have so you need to learn to release, crab friend, release. Trust that the universe knows exactly what you want, need, and even what you wish for. If you continued to cling, you will get nothing. If you learn to relax and release the past and everything in it — including who you were which is likely who you never chose to be, an idea of you that was imposed upon you — the new life you wish for, prosperity, happiness, and the long sought peace and love you deserve won’t be something you’ll have to grab at: it will slip right into your deserving grasp.
Astrologically, you are emerging from a period of reflection, time to take stock of your relationships and interactions with others. Since the moon rules Cancer, there is always a level of emotion attached to your interactions with others. Take your new-found understanding with you and put it to good use because, after all, you labored it, the lessons were yours, the gift is the knowing you now have and your eyes are wide open. Nothing’s going to get by you now and that often means sharp or hurtful critique feels doubly so. You’re on a path of spiritual fulfillment and that is something to celebrate — not fear — as it’s going to continue to take place and shape you anyway. Don’t fight it because this is very good for you and you are coming into your own. The new moon of the 22nd gives you the chance now to set your goals in motion, to stop dreaming about them and make them happen so think big, Cancer: the moon is no small light in the sky. Watch your connections and interactions with others in the coming weeks and continue to clean house. Your friends will continue to be apparent, your support network will continue to strengthen, and your standing in your local community will see who you are: who you have always wanted to be — yourself!
Contemplate: Now that you recognize the true Spirit and mind the universal laws of integrity, much good comes to Cancer! Stay the course!

Negative people aren’t always easy to avoid but it is possible. What’s required to do this is developing a level of discernment greater than have at this time. We’re all works in progress but so is your ability to judge people and situations correctly. You have such a good, kind nature that you tend to see people in the best possible light as well as situations. But the problem is, Cancer, that good and kind people tend to get sucked into the worst possible situations because they didn’t want to really believe one person or another to be an opportunist or anything less than genuine. I don’t mean to say that all people are bad but I do have to say that not all people are good and you’ve met more than your share in recent years. In business and work related matters you are called upon to think more objectively thanks to Mars’ influence. Mars is asking you to take a look behind you, as in retrograde, and see where your actions, choices, and judgment has led you. It is said hindsight is 20/20 and for what it’s worth, this time you’re advised to look back into the past to see where you’ve been so you don’t go there again in future.
Contemplate: Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

Not all things are easy, Cancer, and not all people are reasonable. Right now, you may still feel the slight sting of someone who was less than sensitive toward you. Perhaps you feel that you had no voice, no say so in the matter, but here’s what I want you to consider, little crab: how much does what anyone else thinks of you matter when you know you’ve done your very best and you do your best, every day? Sometimes we are shocked, even when we expect a certain response from someone anyway, as if we can’t believe our ears. What happens is we’re left with the feeling we didn’t get to say our piece and feel further violated. But what matters here and always is that whatever others think of you isn’t what you think of yourself, right? The only time when what other people say and think of us matters is when we let it affect us too long. We’re not robots. We can’t deny our emotional response to unfair treatment. Consider whatever is going on in your life that seems unfair to be a springboard, a launching pad, to change what you don’t like about the reality of whatever is going on! Maybe someone you thought was a friend — even a good friend — did or said something to you that hurt you personally or professionally. There’s much going on that you don’t know about but would you rather be in the dark and seemingly unharmed? Even if you don’t know what someone’s saying about you, if and when you find out, consider it a blessing. To know yourself is a given — a necessity — to further improve yourself and to make changes about your life that you don’t like, that don’t suit you. To know others…though hard at times it seems to do…is a BLESSING. Just when you think you know someone, because you are so trusting, people often disappoint you and cause you some kind of hurt. Now, take what you’ve learned about a person, persons, or situation, and use it to say, “Now I know better.” And further, use this information to increase the chances things like these that you are or soon will discover, will never happen again. It’s not to say you won’t have your share of haters: it just means you’ll sooner recognize them and avoid them in future.
Contemplate: Lesson learned.

When we find ourselves facing the reality of a situation, it’s not always comfortable. Facing reality may feel like fingernails on a chalkboard but despite the spine-chilling screeching, we know we don’t have to drag our nails across it — that’s not what it’s for. Whatever is already written on your personal chalkboard, if you notice something you don’t like, you realize at any time you can change it by simply erasing it and starting over! Cancer, you don’t like starting over and you’d rather, inherently, just stick with it and not deal with it. But there is great wisdom in understanding you are master of your own destiny and what you think is written is only permanent if you let it be. You may be working hard on yourself to become who you want to be and to do that, you must erase the past completely. Nothing written on that board has to stay there including anything written about you by anyone else. Someone may be able to tell you who they think you are based on who they know you were. Only you know who you want to be. Change is good, changing on your own is even better. Don’t just erase what’s on the board, wash the slate completely clean because the past is, including who you were, of no value now. No matter what anyone says about you, you be who you want to be. Let others help you find your way when you feel a little tired of the changes because we all need a little help, sometimes. Even in your current situation, there’s nothing to fear except repeating past mistakes. And who likes to take a test they’ve already taken? Don’t consider these changes as the effects of failure: consider these changes you are making and the ones you want to make right now, as evidence of your SUCCESS! Facing reality may be hard but accepting a fate you didn’t create is not only hard, it’s self-defeating of your higher purpose. As you change, be happy about it! If others aren’t happy about your changes, erase them, too! The only people who matter in life are the people who support and love you no matter who you were, who you are becoming, but they will also love you no matter who you choose to be. Change, little Cancer, good crab that you are! Let go the past and open your tenacious little claws to the future: the one YOU are writing.
Contemplate: The past is history
