CANCER 6/21-7/22

Friday, January 20, 2012

Feeling negative, Cancer, or overly optimistic about your love life and relationships? Single Cancer would undoubtedly be feeling the former. Perhaps you feel your loneliness will never end, that the issues you are dealing with in your personal life are so heavy a burden that you just feel depressed, negative, or even pessimistic about relationships in general. Now, though you are a moody little crab, seemingly tough on the exterior, your soft little crab center is apparently mushier than usual! This isn’t going to attract anyone toward you and thinking the lovely person you’re talking to can’t tell you’ve just had a bought of your infamous tears and melancholy is way off base. Cancer natives are not the best at hiding their emotions though their crab mascot would think their hard little shells cover it all up: not so. Cancer is as easy to read a  human as a crab is. It’s obvious a crab is going to walk sideways, avoiding confrontation and often reality. We know a crab is going to grab something in its claws and never let go until it’s claws are snapped off. We know the crab looks like a hard shell but what’s on the inside is gelatinous! So what’s the sense in faking it? A better bet would be to figure out what’s really wrong and working on it so you can present yourself as who you are and less of what you feel. Committed Cancer natives may find the going is a little rough on the sea these days, but contrarily feeling optimistic, perhaps even overly so. Why the disparity? When we have what we think we want or what we thought we did, we often fall into a routine that no longer serves the interest of the two parties: only the first, Cancer, that’s you.  The routine may run the gamut of a kind of manic state where the highs are…a little too high, followed by a low that’s a little too low and a little…too…obvious. Not that your emotions and moods should affect anyone but yourself, it’s that you project them onto others either wittingly or unwittingly. That is the high high followed by the low low of classic manic disorder.  While you’re feeling high you’re on top of the world! Suddenly, a reality that for others would be no blip on the screen is like Hiroshima: a big up alright, and a very big down. Feeling your feelings are one thing but not expressing them is quite another and therein may lie your problem at this time. Consider striking a balance and temet nosce–know thyself even if you have to crack your own shell to see who you are and using a mirror to see what others see.

Contemplate: Things will get better when you realize your attitude shows like a plumber on a bad day. Rather than deny that your emotions are showing, tuck those shorts in or accept the next person is going to tell you that your sensitivities are showing — too much.
