At the exact minute of your birth, the astrological sign that is rising on the eastern horizon is designated the Ascendant or Rising Sign. The Ascendant is how you dawn on the world, how you present yourself to others. If someone were to guess your astrological sun sign, they would guess it based on what you show the world, which is your rising sign. Its the characteristics and personality traits that you put forth for all to see. Its the stained glass window that you project outward for the rest of your chart to flow through.
Those with their rising in the sign of Virgo are typically realistic, critical, systematic, detail-oriented, selective, analytical, timid, fussy, thoughtful, and particular. You have a clever, resourceful mind and acquiring new information and using it in a practical way are significant to you. At times you can be a bit of a perfectionist, making it difficult for others to live up to your high expectations. However, you are excellent at discovering the flaw in every circumstance and this can be a useful skill if you know how to utilise it correctly. Be mindful that you do not become fault-finding in your personal relationships, as this can turn a pleasant pairing ugly fast. These high standards are not only directed at outer situations but you can be rather critical of yourself as well; keep an eye on the negativity you produce. Over-analysing can lead to excessive worrying over minute details that are insignificant. This sort of tension can lead to physical illness if not tempered. It would be beneficial to you to find a way to absorb what happens while not becoming bitter or spiteful, regretting your past decisions or resenting others for their actions. There may be deeper issues at work in regards to feeling as though you are somehow not good enough which leads to negative thinking. You are likely to age very well. Anxiety and a nervous tension can cause you to stay slim. Decisive action and certainty may elude you at times. You must learn to aid and serve others as this is your life lesson. Virgo is ruled by Mercury and therefore its placement in your chart will be significant.
Shhh! Cancer regards sex as the finest way in which two persons devoted to one another can show their love. So, it’s almost a sacred thing. Read all about Cancer sexuality here.
If the planets symbolize the forces and energies that happen in different situations, then the aspects between the planets symbolize how these energies work together and integrate with each other. There are challenging and easy aspects between the planets and it is up to the individual to choose how they are going to utilize the aspect energies for a positive outcome. The aspects between planets are said to speak to each other. Depending on which planets are aspecting each other and the rest of the natal chart, will determine which planet is dominate and which is not in the aspect between them. But ultimately it is up to the individual to decide how they are going to use the aspects of planets in their chart with their free will, in a meaningful and productive way.
You are accepting and understanding, usually letting go of peoples foibles and letting them try once more, even if they have wronged you in the past. You believe that people should strive to be as good of a person as they can be and when people are around you, they tend to adopt this attitude for themselves. Your presence has a way of evoking joy and bringing people comfort. Your abundant social connections are largely due to an extremely giving nature, which people appreciate and gravitate towards. This placement is likely to bestow you with good luck in your finances. You enjoy making people laugh and will do so at your own expense, if necessary. Filled with positive thinking, you believe in humanity as a whole. You have a great deal of empathy for others and are gentle with, and receptive to, their emotions. It is natural for you to try to see things from another persons point of view and you truly listen when people are talking to you. You do not cast judgement upon others and people sense this about you and therefore take your to heart. However, sometimes you become so engrossed in having fun that you procrastinate in doing your duties. In addition you need to be mindful not to over exert yourself. If you cannot find equilibrium within yourself, you will tend to eat more than you should. Tasty snacks and rich meals make you feel emotionally secure when you cannot derive this another way; restrain from these cravings of they will only create larger challenges for you later on.
Those born in your generation have the ability to be of aid to humanity as a whole. Let your intuition guide you in assisting others.
You are highly responsive, both physically and mentally, to the environment that you find yourself in. Naturally you are full of energy and feel a need to be always active. Quickly disinterested, you require a good deal of mental stimulation to keep your mind busy, lending to your preference towards being a part of many endeavours all at once. You are self-sufficient, unique, inventive, and a revolutionary thinker who is always open to new ideas. In fact, finding fresh ways of doing things or progressive philosophies are a valuable part of life for you and you strive to inspire others to engage in these with you. Your gut intuition is unusually strong and accurate. However, you require complete freedom to be able to use this intuition in whatever way feels right to you, reacting to situations without being hindered by other obligations. Careers that entail the same, monotonous work day in and day out are not for you and you would do best with work that uses your superb ability to adapt to changing circumstances and allows you some room for creativity. You would never abide by others demanding that you do something and telling you in what way you must execute your task. It is important to you to discover things for yourself, in your own time. Your thinking does not follow the typical step-by-step process that most others adhere to. Instead, your thinking is more abstract and conclusions tend to just find their way into your mind seemingly from thin air, though this is just your intuition working its magic and providing you with unparalleled insight. Scientific and technological subject appeal to you and you are usually one of the first to try out new gadgets or concepts. Astrological topics and anything related to supernatural phenomena will also hold your attention. You are an articulate communicator, in both the written and spoken word, which readily exchanges fresh and unconventional information with other people.
You full of get-up-and-go! This placement contributes to a healthy body and mind. You know how to assert yourself when needed and you confront your troubles head-on, in a clear manner. Rather than sulking about the difficulties you encounter, you concentrate on eradicating them. You are unsympathetic when you hear people complaining about their challenges without putting in the necessary effort to fix them. Through the obstacles in your life, you have discovered how to channel your emotional energy and cravings into productive endeavours instead of letting them tear you apart. You are rarely sick and when you do happen to catch something, you recover rapidly. People gravitate towards your enthusiastic nature and the vitality you exude. You are brave and capable, allowing you to feel confident participating in strategic risk-taking. You easily attract potential romantic partners because of your gregarious demeanour.
You are likely to be emotionally underdeveloped. Opening up to others is not easy for you due to your being unable to move past previous hurts, always fearful that the same will happen once more. You keep both your money and your feelings to yourself. Innately, you know that nothing comes for free and you would rather not pay the price unless it is truly worth having. Rather than expressing your emotions to another, you will tend to purchase tokens of affection, as it seems to be easier for you to handle them rejecting your present than for them to reject you emotionally. You deeply desire to be loved but you are unable to be intimately close to another. Inside, you are insecure and do not believe you are worthy of being loved. It is only when you transform this way of thinking that your life will turn around for the better. You deserve as much love as anyone does, though this needs to come to you on your own. Try to let go of what happened in the past and move forward with your life.
Your demeanour is usually stern and sombre and others may think you generally do not care about much. These observations are untrue as it is more so that you are being careful about who you reveal yourself to. You desire warmth and affection though it is very challenging for you. In order for you to receive affection, you will need to show it first. You cannot purchase other peoples feelings. Letting loose and having a good time without reservation is hard for you. Working diligently towards a practical result is something you can more readily comprehend, but emotions? They confuse you. It is uncommon that you engage in fun just for the sake of fun. Work tends to be fun for you which is baffling to others. Oddly enough, there is the occasional moment where you will distract yourself with something and leave the work to build up. You must find equilibrium between the serious side of life and enjoying yourself.
You may seek out romantic partners that do not treat you the way they should. If you find a way to appreciate the person you are, others will also. Safety and stability are valuable to you though you are unsure how to acquire them. You often worry about losing monetary assets or the people you care for. These feelings may become a self-fulfilling prophecy. Allow yourself to open up to others and forget past hurt. Look your problems right in the eye and deal with them; it is the one path to conquering them.
When faced with much difficulty you can become very pessimistic and down on your luck. Acting responsibly is important though life has put these challenges in place for you to grow in strength and wisdom. You are more likely than others to comprehend that there is more to life than being happy. However, this does not require that you must live in misery. Your loneliness stems from your unwillingness to accept that people do truly care for you. Again, it is likely your own insecurities colouring reality for you. If you want to draw love towards you, then you must first act in a caring fashion.
You are guarded about sharing your interests with others because you are fearful that they will reject you. In your relationships you may be mildly envious or try to possess your partner, as you tend to be so afraid of losing what is yours that you cling to it. However, this tendency only works to distance your partner from you as they feel trapped, creating the exact thing that you were worried about. No amount of force can keep someone that does not wish to be kept. Feelings of love should be allowed to be expressed freely, without control being placed on them. Try to keep in mind that the challenges you are facing in life are only there to aid in your growth.
You have a great deal of ambition and drive to succeed, but you often doubt yourself. You lack confidence in your abilities and are unsure whether others are going to respond to you positively. You have no faith in yourself to overcome lifes obstacles which is why you often work yourself to the bone trying to demonstrate that you are worthy. You are highly insecure and are scared that you will fail. Often you cling to the things you have because you feel that somehow they will be gone tomorrow. It is hard for you to bond with others as you tend to keep your emotions bottled up. Instead, you attempt to purchase peoples love and loyalty. However, that is not possible; you need to acquire this with a genuine connection. How can people see the wonderful things within you if you cannot see them yourself? Your insecurities are so pronounced that when you are close to someone, you require them to consistently reassure you that they care for you, leaving the relationship strained in the end. Perhaps re-think your idea of what it means to be emotionally secure. Deep down you believe that you need to be someone else so that people will accept you or care for you. Many times you feel as though you are the odd one out in a group situation and will act cold and reserved, when the truth is that it is actually very important to you that you are involved equally. Due to your sensitivity, you are likely to wall up and refuse to let anyone in instead of facing the possible hurts and vulnerability that may surface by opening up to someone deeply.
Being cautious and keeping yourself closed off emotionally makes it a challenge to form a bond with someone. Taking time for yourself to reflect and work on personal growth can help you become stronger emotionally as well as allow you to feel more secure, however you need to defeat the tendency to view isolation as rejection and the lonely feeling that comes along with that perspective. You are prone to feeling anxious, irritated, and depressed at times. It seems as though somehow life always throws a wrench in the works when you are trying to achieve something. You may feel like the universe is working in opposition to your best efforts and that you alone must do the heavy lifting for humanity. You are not living this life by yourself, there are others around willing to help you and care for you if only you would let them in. In a past life, you expressed your feelings in an open and loving manner and were cast off because of it. Now you are scared to try again, instinctively believing that somehow you will be disregarded and hurt once more. Your perspective on how to become emotionally secure is incorrect; it is not about others and what they do or dont do, but about how you see things. Despite your cool, reserved demeanour, inwardly you are very caring and crave to love and be loved. Of course there is a chance that your feelings may be harmed, but that is part of life and each painful experience can help you grow if you allow it to.
This placement stands out amongst the others as it has a particularly strong influence. At your best, you gain wisdom by going through something yourself, as even when you do something wrong the information you have gained will carry you. During the most emotionally difficult times in your life, you find a way to rise back up; nothing can keep you down for long and you persevere through your challenges. You are greatly aided by the mental drive this placement bestows.
You are confident, driven, and enthusiastic. You are of the mindset that if you try hard enough to achieve a goal, you will eventually do so. There is an awareness of when things should be done and an intuition regarding what methods would be effective, and which ones would not be. Competition can be fun for you and you remain cheerful throughout the challenge. However, this competition is mostly done on your own, as you like to push yourself farther than you have before. Revenge is not something that you usually engage in as you prefer to let go of whatever wrongs others have done you. What you find truly interesting are things that broaden your mind, such as higher learning, spiritual matters, philosophical concepts, or travel. Being active and out in nature appeals to your adventurous spirit. If you could develop self-discipline, you are likely to do well in sporty activities. You exude positivity and greet the world with enthusiasm. Money comes easily to you and therefore you are likely to waste it too readily. You give of yourself and your possessions freely. What happens in the future is not troubling to you as you trust in the universe to provide you with your necessities. Others see you as honourable and honest in your dealings. It is rare that you allow anger to dwell within you for very long; usually you are apt to let things go easily as you believe that staying upset would only be wasteful. When times are tough, you are still able to maintain your optimism and continue to be kind and considerate towards others.
The routines you have adopted can frustrate other people. You may be rude, ill-mannered, or personally unhygienic and these traits often aggravate others. There is a tendency towards laziness and a dislike of hard work. You believe that this sort of labour is meant for someone else, and you will watch others work while you relax, with a clear conscience. You are able to tell what people desire and sweet-talk them into doing what you want; being truthful is no concern of yours. You feel like there are two different people at war within you and this wreaks havoc for you personally. Sometimes you will become so accommodating with those you love that you become someone else and wind up feeling miserable in the end. You are unsure what exactly it is that you want out of a romantic partnership, someone to take care of you or someone to be on an equal level with. When you feel emotionally unsatisfied, you can over-indulge in rich foods. You are prone to over-eating sweets and richer cuisine in general, as you can be rather insecure. You may question your self-worth or attractiveness, despite people expressing otherwise. Try to develop a backbone and fight for the things that matter to you, or for yourself when necessary. You crave genuine care and affection for emotional security, and if you believe that this may be removed from your life, you start to fall apart. Your warmth stands on its own, though you must curb your possessive habits. Love transcends many lifetimes and we never fully say goodbye. Instead, we are brought back together in the next life.
Keep an eye on your finances as they can run away from you more rapidly than you can acquire them. You have a habit of indulging yourself too much as well as expecting your surroundings to be luxurious. Rather than do the work necessary to fix something, you will often sweep problems under the rug. You may feel as though you are not good enough just as yourself and you are constantly monitoring how popular you are. It is important for you to learn how to be brave and express your concerns when you have them. Sometimes you care so much about what people will think of you that you steer clear of any confrontation. However, your road to happiness involves building integrity and fighting for the things you believe in, as this will allow you to be truly who you are deep down.
Your feelings towards love are passionate and all encompassing, perhaps to the point of abandoning reason, and you require intensity in a partnership. Extremely enamoured with your loved one, you can be rather envious and try to possess them. You insist that you experience every emotion down to your very core. This may create challenges as partnerships cannot exhibit the level of intensity that you insist upon on a regular basis. Often, it does not matter to you whether or not the emotions are positive, only that they stir up very strong reactions within you. You would rather cope with emotional torture than to feel nothing. The passionate partnerships that you crave usually do not stand the test of time, however you search for them because they teach you valuable lessons about yourself and alter you significantly, creating growth and wisdom.
You can become obsessed with the things that matter to you. Either you put in everything you have, or you prefer not to engage at all; you cannot do anything half-heartedly. You will likely find it difficult to control your emotions or desires, and might end up devoting yourself passionately to the wrong thing. These powerful urges and feelings will cause destruction if not tempered. Try to use the sensual energy that you possess in abundance, to create something meaningful; you can use art to release your inner tensions. Do not over-indulge or become pleasure-seeking. The only way a partnership will work is for you to stop holding on so tightly to your lovers, treating them like objects to be owned, but rather allow them the space to be an individual. You may have trouble feeling secure and should try to find your own inner confidence rather than taking out your perceived inadequacies on others. The challenges that you face in your life are there to teach you to rethink your beliefs and priorities.
You may express yourself in an eloquent and clever manner, but you tend to keep to shallow waters, never venturing into the deeper emotions that some may be fond of. You are also not likely to stick with anything for very long, have trouble remembering things, and do not have a stable pattern of thought. You are indecisive, anxious, and prone to overthinking. Your high-strung nature can rub people the wrong way at times. You enjoy talking about people when they are not around and can spin a story to better suit your needs at the moment. You are interested in where others have been, how they feel, what they think, and why. You listen to them and people naturally divulge their private thoughts to you when they may not be so open with someone else. Previous experiences are particularly fascinating to you. Historical events in both your life and the lives of others are important to you and you readily share and listen to these tales. Archaeological or genealogical topics draw you in, as well as anything pertaining to myths. You feel almost as though you are reliving these experiences yourself.
You must find equilibrium between your mental state and your emotional state as you tend to swing wildly from one to the other. Your thinking is sharp but unfortunately so is your tongue, and this creates hurt where there did not need to be any. Try to think before you speak and form your words in a more diplomatic fashion. Use both your logical thinking with your sensitive emotions. Your nervousness and inner tension can create frustration for you internally that you often take out on others. You crave genuine care and understanding.
You have a tendency to make yourself miserable due to deeply rooted anxieties over being unable to support yourself and possibly losing whatever material possessions you have acquired. This concern distresses you to such a degree that you pinch your pennies, worrying that any moment now it can all come tumbling down. As the anxiety increases, you find yourself sacrificing your excitement, your giving nature, and your trust in the world. Try to relieve your apprehension by relaxing more and doing the opposite of your inclination; GIVE. Do not lose trust in the universe to look out for you and keep you safe. Have faith and you will find yourself surrounded with what you need.
There is a possibility of setting your goals higher than you can achieve. This sort of mentality sets you up for a fall and when you do inevitably fail, you are unable to hold onto your initiative and motivation to continue with your aspirations. Keep in mind that you can accomplish a lot by taking things one day at a time; slow and steady wins the race. Allow yourself a realistic timeframe to aspire to, as time is the one thing you have the most of; do not fight against it, but become in sync, flow with it. Dismissing your aspirations will result in endlessly jumping from on unfinished project to another; learn self-restraint and complete the things you begin. You may feel an internal tension for stimulation which can have you trying to do too many assignments at once. The most important thing for you to learn is to be satisfied with yourself despite your possible imperfections.
You are prone to idealism and romanticism, and often fall in love with an idea of a person rather than an actual person. There is a tendency towards thinking too fondly of another, expecting them to be your perfect soulmate and then feeling devastated when the object of your affections inevitably falls short. It would be most beneficial for you to keep your eyes fully open and your head out of the clouds, before venturing too far in.
In addition, this placement may cause you to create a partner in your mind that is unrealistic and then chasing this daydream your entire life, not realising that such a person could never exist. Ideals can be good if they can serve as a rough draft rather than the main plan.
You may need to be careful not to become wrapped up in a clingy, unhealthy sort of partnership where your independence suffers. It is possible that you or your significant other will position themselves in the relationship to be a hero that you or they must depend on, or perhaps some sort of victim. Partnerships must be on equal footing if they are to be healthy, otherwise a destructive pattern can emerge where one person always takes and the other gives or in which you lose you who are in order to continue the relationship.
You have delicate sensibilities and strive to create an aesthetically pleasing environment. You require harmonious, beautiful surroundings and probably feel yourself drawn to art in some form or creative pursuits. It is likely that you are fond of the creative type of person. You have an allure about you that others are intrinsically attracted to. Sensuality and intuition play a large role for you and you often seek out uncommon people, subjects, or situations. You lack confidence in your romantic endeavours. Try to keep in mind that all of us are flawed in one way or another, all you can do is follow the path before you and try your best.
The pathway towards achieving your goals may be obstructed and there is also issue with asserting power. It seems that something always stands in the way of what you are trying to accomplish. It would be wise to evaluate the reasoning behind your actions. Are these actions done for selfish reasons alone, or do they have a benefit for humanity as a whole? Competing with others allows you to learn how to better collaborate with people. Much wisdom can be attained with this placement, however it is imperative that you act selflessly.
Karma from a past life insists that you listen to the opposing views of others openly in this life, as you had acted in a controlling, commanding manner previously. If you insist on holding to your own opinions rigidly, your conditions will only worsen. Great power comes with great responsibilitythis responsibility is to ensure others well-being, not only your own. Those who need to learn this are often placed in powerful roles so that they may do so. Be humble, keep striving, and develop your patience.
You can be very innovative though you must develop a way to adapt. You prefer things to stay the same, with the same routine, and this desire prompts you to attempt controlling others in some way. This placement may create a great deal of tension for you emotionally, though you can use these challenges to better understand the meaning of life.
This placement allows for range of different outcomes. It is possible that you will have a partnership with a person that is interested in subjects that you either are disinterested in or have never experienced. Another option is that you are devoted to a project or foundation that irks those closest to you. It is also possible that you will waste your resources or appear pompous. A tendency to over-indulge in sensuous pleasures, especially fine food and drink, can create challenges in your health. Be mindful of your weight and of any issues with your circulatory system. Life will easily bestow you with the things you need and this causes you to be unappreciative of them, as well as lazy. This placement attempts to teach you to find equilibrium between the possessions you desire and spiritual idealism. The beliefs you hold will likely be challenged and you may need to rethink your values. Emotionally dramatic, you can be prone to leaping into love without looking carefully first. Your amorous emotions may be drawn in by material assets or prestige.
However, despite the troubles you encounter, you are generally a warm, giving individual that will always be there to lend a helping a hand to those that require it. You withhold judgement when helping others and people are instinctively aware of this. A harmonious environment is important to you and therefore you would prefer to be accepting of the flaws found in others rather than create tension. Nonetheless, you must be careful not to skirt important issues just to evade conflict or keep from hurting others emotionally; some things need to be said. Work on your assertiveness in order to make sure you are taken care of and respected. Out-going and social, you strongly prefer the company of others to being alone, as spending too much time on your own makes you feel uneasy. You are able to be diplomatic while remaining popular. Developing self-discipline will be beneficial for you.
It is likely that you attempt to evade your duties and all that you are afraid of. This inclination may lead you towards escapism via substance abuse or other means that can provide an outlet. You may be afraid of what you do now know, an end to your existence, or of a higher power. It is imperative that you face the things you are afraid of directly, as this is the only way to surpass them. Do not disregard the issues in your life, expecting that they will somehow disappearthey wont. The more you suffer the more you will learn to submit to the course fate has put before you, the more you give in to this the more likely you will be to reach enlightenment and redemption.
There is a good chance that you place too much value on acquiring material or monetary assets which can blind you to the things that truly matter. Ponder the tale of the one who gained the world yet lost his soul and re-evaluate what you feel is significant. Money does not buy true happiness, though this lesson may not come easily to you.
You doubt other peoples intentions, unable to trust most. This innate distrust may have been due to previous life karma involving matters in which you were betrayed somehow, losing your material assets and social status due to having cared too deeply for others or believing in them too faithfully. These sorts of difficulties occur to show us how insignificant monetary assets are and that we should instead focus our attention on doing the right thing regardless of what we gain out of it. It would be beneficial for you to appreciate the things you have but be able to lose them when necessary. Let go!
This position may also prompt ambiguity, misconception, false pride intellectually, and deceitful scams. Your motivation may be lost without you knowing the cause. Your escapist tendencies may also influence you in this way. It is possible that in a previous life you had used power as a leader in a way that was cruel and selfish. If you act selflessly, karma will see to it that you are treated well.
You are controlled and patient, able to persevere through difficult times and put forth a great deal of effort to attain your goals. You endure where others would falter. Innately, you understand that nothing worth having is given without some sort of sacrifice and you are willing to invest your time and energy fully when you have committed to an endeavour. The things you strive for are firmly held in reality and you will usually approach them in a systematic, organised fashion. Highly ambitious, you would make an excellent leader and administrator. However, you are most comfortable working out of the lime-light and produce the best results when on your own. You have a good head on your shoulders though you may sometimes work at a slower pace than others. This slower work pace is likely due to you not wanting to miss any details in your work. Anything you start on, you intend to go the distance. Be careful not to become resentful from holding in your frustrations; find a way to express these upsets to those that have caused them and then let them go. You are a good mix of daring yet cautious. In your past life, you were able to find equilibrium between what you wanted in the moment and your duties. Socialising is difficult for you as you are usually a bit distant with others. Despite your ambitions, you are not power-hungry but rather just wish to do a good job.
You have a good head on your shoulders and keep your feet firmly planted on the ground, taking life seriously and applying self-control, patience, and hard effort to achieve your goals. You are aware that anything worth having may require some sacrifice and time. Effective, detail-oriented, and organised, your word is your bond as you have a realistic view on what can and cannot be achieved. Your ability to focus allows you to work diligently until you have completed your task and when you do something, you make sure to do it right. Highly capable, you succeed at whatever you decide to fully take on. You are dutiful and never skirt your responsibilities. However, many times you take certain actions only because you feel as though you are obligated to. You have a timid or quiet sort of demeanour, though this does not make others feel uneasy when in your presence. Being the centre of attention is not something you seek, as you are not interested in displaying yourself for others. At either home or your work environment, you prefer to have things be neat and orderly. There is a likelihood that you may prosper by those more advanced in their age. People in respectable positions tend to want to see you succeed as they are intuitively aware of your dedication to all that you undertake. Leadership comes naturally to you and you understand just what needs to be done to further your goals. Mentally you are realistic, thoughtful, and demanding. You do not take well to others telling you how to do something as you prefer to think through it yourself thoroughly, analyse it, and come to your own conclusions as to what needs doing and how.
The Planets in astrology symbolize what is being addressed. They behave as actors in a production. What is happening on stage? The signs in astrology are the way that the actors behave on stage. They ask the question how? How is the planet motivated? How are they living their life, in their highest good or in their shadow? The signs describe in detail how the actor might react, behave or conduct themselves.
Cancers do not enjoy approaching situations in a straight line, but rather prefer moving indirectly (learn about compatibility with Cancer here). They feel more comfortable when they can come towards something from a hidden angle and may take their time expressing themselves. However, their emotionality is anything but slow and steady. They are prone to dramatically intense emotional reactions as their mood seems to blow with the wind. The people closest to them are likely to feel confused by the speed at which they change from cheerful to melancholic to angry.
Typically a Cancer is diligent, friendly, empathetic, determined, protecting, and frugal, as well as quarrelsome, emotionally delicate, moody, instinctive, possibly even psychic, with a tendency to sacrifice themselves for others.
A Cancer will tend to react emotionally rather than mentally. They need to be in harmonious environments as they will easily soak up the energies of those around them. Due to their sensitive emotional natures, it is likely that they consistently try to elicit responses of kindness, caring, and empathy from others; they crave regular emotional reassurance. They can be a bit of a homebody as the home, and those in it, are a sanctuary for them. Their ties to those closest to them are so important that they often become co-dependent on their loved ones, needing to spend as much time with them as possible and the loved ones may begin to feel suffocated, requiring their own space.
Cancers are naturally inconsistent in their emotions and therefore can easily alter their views, thoughts, decisions, and the like. However, they have less energy than the average person and will tend towards doing things a bit more slowly in general. Exercise is usually something they must force themselves to do as they do not usually enjoy it for its own merit. Unfortunately, this adds to a problem with weight gain as they age. A Cancer may increase their physical activity by utilising their strong emotional nature; channelling their intensity correctly can indeed create much needed get up and go for these personalities.
Cancers remember a great deal more than most and this tied with their emotional sentimentality causes them to often sit around daydreaming about the past and what once was. However, this also manifests as hording and clinging to their belongings, unable to throw anything out as if this would somehow mean they are throwing away a piece of their past.
Family is extremely important to a Cancer and they will work very hard to provide comfort and security for those they love. They may travel at times but will always return to their home base and those closest to them. Home is home, and they will not go too long without checking in.
Traditional and often conventional, though they find themselves over-thinking and focusing too much on possible difficulties in the future. Often they deal with these worries internally and may develop problems with the lining of their stomach from the stress. They instinctively feel that they are always one step away from danger and may be extra cautious because of it, paying attention to the situation around them in a suspicious manner. It would be most beneficial for them to develop a way to curb their emotional reactions.
You convey your feelings in a considerate and supportive way. You are caring, compassionate, sympathetic, tender, creative, and unobtrusive, with a fascinating way of perceiving how others are feeling or may respond to circumstances. You have a large amount of empathy, feeling the pain others are experiencing. Those who are suffering instinctively seek you out as they are aware on some level that you will not judge them for their woes. Often times, people are unable to imagine that you are suffering just as greatly as they are themselves; regardless of your personal feelings you will always do your best to aid those in need. Deep down you believe that the suffering you have experienced happened for a reason, even if the sole motive was to teach you a lesson. Your kind-heart may be misused by others which forces you to retreat from the world to replenish your inner balance. Your spirit craves music and there is a pull towards it. Music becomes a major part of your life or expression, as you discover that only through music are you able to find a home for the often indefinable emotional chaos present within you. You have an idealistic view of love; be mindful that the romantic in you falls in love with the person you are seeing rather an idea you have constructed in your mind. Your daydreams and emotions can be quite real to you and you can become completely engrossed in them, perhaps too much. Your moods may fluctuate wildly, leaving those close to you baffled, unknowing what to do. Challenging projects do not deter you and you are likely to enjoy working for people who are not as affluent as yourself. You absorb the energy around you whether you want to or not and this drains you; you do best when you can work on your own, away from the stressful energies of others. There is likely to be some sort of creative or artistic talent, though you may need to discipline your mind before your fantasies run away with you.
Your mind is very flexible, lively, dynamic, alert, inquisitive, and multi-talented. You absorb information from anything you come across, especially by way of written or spoken communication or through experiencing new cultures, exploring distant lands, or meeting new people. Unfortunately, you are likely to suffer from great internal tension and anxiousness that must be expended; establishing an exercise routine will help you to counter this energy. You are quick-witted and effortlessly respond with clever retort or humorous jest. You prefer doing more than one thing at a time and may try to swallow more than you can chew. Boredom can be a problem for you as you are able to comprehend even complex matters at lightning speed; once you have understood something, it is difficult to hold your attention further. A jack-of-all-trades, you possess titbits of information on a variety of different subjects, yet cannot hold your focus long enough to master any of them. You enjoy working with your hands and may not have a dominant hand preference; perhaps try playing the drums, you may find it comes easily to you. Engaging in verbal competitions of all sorts interests you. You need to watch out for a tendency towards being trivial, shallow, and insincere with others. In order to achieve success, you must learn to steady your mind and discipline your actions. Make sure to stick through with the endeavours you begin. Careers that deal with communication, articulation, persuasion, or the written or spoken word would be well suited for you, as would working in a field where you are able to change your scenery on a regular basis, perhaps traveling. Without constant variety, you are likely to quickly grow bored of the situation and therefore have a tendency to switching careers or living quarters regularly. Try to develop tolerance for those that are unable to comprehend intricate matters as easily as you do.
When choosing a romantic partner, you are more moved by intelligence than mere looks. You prefer someone who is an intellectual, inquisitive, clever, witty, and communicates well. Because you can lose interest quickly, you require a partner that will stimulate your mind and possibly even provide some sort of obstacle for you to untangle. You enjoy always having something exciting going on in your relationships; the more you can learn and experience, the better. Communicating, exchanging ideas, going on random adventures, and socialising with your companion are essential to your happiness in a partnership. However, you have a charming personality and are naturally flirtatious with others which can create problems if you are with a partner that tends to be more possessive and envious; these sorts of behaviours usually do not bode well with you. It is best if you are allowed freedom to interact with new people in your naturally out-going, charismatic, lively fashion. Be mindful not to break too many hearts on your way to finding the right partner, as you can tend to easily change your mind about a person quite suddenly or date multiple people at once. Commitment is difficult for you to invest in and you often enjoy the thrilling excitement of the early stages of romance more than the later stages. You are gifted in articulating yourself in all forms; writing, speaking, singing, and the like. You tend to remove yourself from your emotions and objectively analyse your feelings. If Venus is negatively aspected, you may have trouble with your lungs or the oxygen in your system.
Conflicts are difficult for you to handle and you may even sweep things under the rug just to keep the atmosphere harmonious. You feel uneasy with overt confrontation or perceived hostility. You do not typically strive to climb the corporate ladder as the competition deters you. It is more valuable to you to be content internally. You may feel lost when you are thrust into circumstances that require assertive behaviour. However, you will fight to the death, if need be, to protect those closest to you. You become very defensive of the ones you love if you feel they are being mistreated somehow. Though naturally you would hide from conflict, you readily come to the aid of those you care for and can muster up a great deal of protective energy if the situation calls for it. Your ambitions are often largely connected to the desires of your family. You would put a lot on the line to secure their happiness. Stressful circumstances unravel you and it would be best if you avoided environments where you needed to contend with others. If you are forced to deal with these sorts of situations, you will become grumpy and ill-tempered, brooding or sulking from the pressure. Your physical stamina is unsteady and directly correlates to the way you are feeling emotionally in the moment. Any sort of negativity will dampen your spirit and it will be physically apparent as you will become rather sluggish. Although you have a tendency to use food as a way to deal with emotional upsets, it would be wise if you abstained from this as it does you more harm than good. You are dedicated, emotional, instinctive, protective, empathetic, sincere, determined, and industrious. It would be best for your health if you were able to find a positive outlet for the large amount of emotional energy that you possess.
The best way for you to grow is through benefiting humanity or enlightening others. You believe that everyone is connected and that what harms one of us, harms the rest. You are compassionate, giving, amiable, modest, unobtrusive, and prophetic with a quiet humour and excellent intuition. Spiritual matters are of particular significance to you though you must carve your own road to truth. Occasional seclusion from the world is healthy for you as you may need to sooth the tensions you feel internally. You feel a strong urge to aid those that are less fortunate than yourself and may be involved in humanitarian efforts; your presence allows others to have faith that somehow things will work out for the best. You can become effective in the healing arts, if interested. Being out in nature is a favourite pastime, and you have an affinity for animals, especially those of a larger breed. When afflicted, you can be too emotionally sensitive, embellish facts or stories, over-indulge, prone to excess in general, and become wrapped up with the long-gone joyful moments of the past.
Your nature is best described as diligent, hard-working, precise, effective, methodical, orderly, timid, frugal, prompt, and academically inclined. Your reasonable mind and administrative talents allow you to become a leader, however you are often too exacting and demanding of others. You are able to do routine, monotonous projects without complaint as you enjoy details and have no trouble focusing on your tasks. You enjoy investigating and probing for answers as to why things work the way they do; you may also be suited to mathematics. You have a tendency to worry about your health to an extreme and may easily fall into gloominess and despair. Cleanliness and organisation are paramount to you and this extends to your work environment. You may find that you isolate yourself from others as you often prefer to be on your own. Mentally alert, you require a good deal of mental stimulation so as to keep you from becoming disinterested in life; boredom may cause anxiety for you. Try to be more accepting of others rather than expecting that they display your perfectionistic standards.
The Planets in astrology symbolize what is being addressed. They behave as actors in a production. What is happening on stage? The Houses in astrology are the stage. They ask the question where? Where is the action? In the home, in health, in the career or in the marriage, to name a few. The Houses tell the story of where the action is happening, what type of people are involved and what sort of environment it is.
It is likely that your aspirations are quite high, though you either prefer for these aims to somehow be of use in a group setting or you swing to the other end and are unconcerned with what a group would desire, instead looking out for only your own wishes. It is easy for you to acquire friends in high stations. You tend to be dutiful, open-minded, and a bit of a philanthropist, preferring to achieve social acceptance than power. You have an affinity for working with groups and often take the position as leader for group events as you are an excellent coordinator.
You are drawn to romantic partners that are nurturing or want to be nurtured by you, those who are often more delicate with their feelings. Relationships may come and go until you find a partner that will provide you with the deep sense of security you crave; however, you are unlikely to find this perfect mate as you need to develop a sense of security within yourself instead. You feel lonely when you are not in a relationship, therefore you will continue to jump in and out of partnerships.
The people closest to you have a great effect on your emotional state. It is important to you that you are well-liked by others. You will likely pursue those that inspire you to be more compassionate and who stimulate your feelings.
If you are male, you may search for a partner that will care for and shelter you as a mother might and you tend to inspire others to express these characteristics. You will entice a partner who is caring and enjoys creating a home environment.
Be mindful of a tendency towards inconsistent emotions and mood swings. You may entire into a marriage union for the sole purpose of building a home life with the partner, and it is probable that you will marry more than once.
You feel a strong emotional pull to obtain a partner and establish a marriage. However, your fickle moods will need to be tempered if you are to succeed in any union; your emotions are over-sensitive and over-exposed. Do not create change in a relationship only for the sake of change itself; if it isnt broken, do not fix it. Let it be. Emotional stimulation needs to come from within, not from pressuring an outside source to provide this for you.
Public relations or partnerships are likely to be involved in your career preference; you are considered a good public figurehead. It is possible that your marriage union will allow you clarity of thought when dealing with workplace safety, and you tend to rely on others to satisfy your necessities in the work environment. Partnerships are crucial to your career.
Written or spoken communication may be part of your career path as you have an excellent talent for articulating your thoughts, and others are likely to take notice of it. You are very mentally active and physically agile, often being thrown into situations where you must make use of these skills. There is a tendency to be a Jack-of-all-trades and it would be difficult for you to choose only one type of career. Traveling or teaching may be part of your career path.
Good-natured and easy going, you find popularity bestowed upon you in both your professional life as well as your personal life; people are generally attracted to your pleasant personality. You have a welcoming and affectionate way of interacting with the world, tending to promote positive energy. You inspire others to want to help you, though you must be mindful not to take advantage of this and become idle when you should be putting in your fair share of the work. You are likely talented with your voice somehow, and may use this talent for singing, speaking in public, or perhaps being involved in a career where the quality of your voice is important. This placement suggests a favourable financial situation for you.
You have many acquaintances as well as a large group of enthusiastic friends, and you are often a leader in social gatherings. There is a tendency to give a lot of yourself to your companions; therefore it is imperative that the people you form strong bonds with do not have a bad influence on you. This placement denotes a probability that either you will try to use your friends, or they will try to use you. Either way, you are quite involved in group events. In addition, you possess strong wants, hopes, and aspirations.
Marriage or romantic partnerships are likely to bring you prosperity or help you in some way. You seek a partner who will open your mind to possibilities and inspire personal growth. They may be rather philosophical and broaden your knowledge in this subject, or possibly in religion or spiritual matters. It is likely that you have an inherent need to expand your mind or become a more moral, conscientious individual and you are drawn to a partner that will help you on your journey to do so.
The person you choose is likely to be successful professionally. If Jupiter is negatively aspected in your chart, this partner may not be morally sound and can be careless, selfish, unmotivated, narrow-minded, excessive, and deceitful.
You have a talent for inspiring others to be giving and helpful to you, though in order to succeed in your partnerships, you must curb any inclinations towards dishonestly prideful behaviour and over-indulgence.
Others see you as controlled with a good deal of discipline. You have a more serious nature and tend to be a bit reserved with others, preferring a cool demeanour. This may be due to a harsh or difficult childhood, possibly even an illness that held you back. You are plagued with insecurity and feelings of inadequacy, often believing you were never truly loved. Frequently things seem like a struggle to you and this gives way to a pessimistic view leading you to sometimes struggle with depression. Fortunately, you are very dutiful and a hard worker which allows you to power through whatever obstacle that comes your way. There is a tendency to greater luck in the later stages of life versus the earlier ones, therefore keep moving forward as your hard work will eventually pay off.
You may have a unique career or way of acquiring an income. What matters most to you in this area is the ability to pursue your creative and innovative ideas at will. Often your material possessions, including finances, are unstable. There is an erratic and unpredictable energy regarding resources, which fluctuates continuously; you can never be sure what sort of situation you will find yourself in financially. Fortunately, you are usually able to escape being dragged down by these obstacles.
Your career does not tend to follow the usual path; instead you will encounter odd shifts and circumstances revolving your journey towards success. Be careful to stay practical in your endeavours as you are easily swayed into an unrealistic mind-set, daydreaming with rose-coloured glasses on, instead of seeing things for what they truly are. Creativity in one form or another is likely to be part of your profession and you may find yourself involved with art, photography, pharmaceuticals, entertainment, advertising, humanitarian or charitable efforts, or metaphysics. Publicly, your reputation may swing from one end to another, often without a foreseeable cause. It is possible that you felt unwanted or excluded by either of your parents.
Your professional life or public image is often affected by unanticipated events, especially situations related to world affairs. You may come across as aggressive in your dealings; allow yourself to develop tolerance, subtlety, and acceptance for others that may not always follow your fast pace. This is particularly important when dealing with the general public or society as a whole. This placement may elicit a need to either benefit society somehow or retreat from it altogether. There is also a possibility towards becoming power-hungry, though using a heavy-handed approach will often lead to failure. Use your many talents and abilities to improve humanity instead. You have a knack for understanding peoples true motivations and intentions and working in the background may appeal to you.
