Cancer is one of the twelve constellations of the zodiac. Its name is Latin for crab and it is commonly represented as one. Its astrological symbol is ♋.
The Tropic of Cancer, also referred to as the Northern Tropic, is currently 23°26′13.3″ (or 23.43702°) north of the Equator. It is the most northerly circle of latitude on Earth at which the Sun can be directly overhead. This occurs on the June solstice, when the Northern Hemisphere is tilted toward the Sun to its maximum extent.
Cancer( ♋ Latin: Cancer) is the fourth astrological sign in the Zodiac, originating from the constellation of Cancer. Under the tropical zodiac, the Sun transits this area on average between June 22 and July 22, and under the sidereal zodiac, the Sun transits this area between approximately July 16 and August 15.
Cancer is the Cardinal sign of the Water Trigon, which is made up of Cancer, Pisces, and Scorpio. It is considered a negative (female) sign, whose domicile, or ruling planet, is the Moon. Though some depictions of Cancer feature a lobster, the sign is most often represented by the crab, based on the Karkinos, a giant crab that harassed Heracles during his fight with the Hydra.
Hippocrates used the terms carcinos and carcinoma to describe non-ulcer forming and ulcer-forming tumors of the disease, cancer. In Greek, these words refer to a crab, most likely applied to the disease because the finger-like spreading projections from a cancer called to mind the shape of a crab.
The law of attraction is the attractive, magnetic power of the Universe that draws similar energies together. It manifests through the power of creation, everywhere and in many ways. This law attracts thoughts, ideas, people, situations and circumstances.
The law of attraction manifests through your thoughts, by drawing to you thoughts and ideas of a similar kind, people who think like you, and also corresponding situations and circumstances.
Thinking along the lines of the above quotes I was wondering why I chanced upon the documentary about Billy Connolly and then decided to watch it. I have taken to reading my life experiences like a book, or narrative to extract meaning.
This morning the first thing that happened was that the sun went into the sign of Cancer at 5.30 BST.
Next, looking at the charts of both Robin Williams and Billy Connolly I note they both have ‘malefics’ in the 8th house also Cancer represented in a positive and dominant way. Both men succumbed to Parkinson’s – and Billy battled and won a round with cancer. These chart patterns kick in at birth – we know that Billy suffered early trauma and abuse at a young age – I have not looked at Williams’ biography, but I am guessing there was some negative experience in his childhood of intense trauma for a person especially tuned into a vibration of personal security with sun in Cancer. Billy’s Jupiter (in Cancer) is his sun-ruler so it is especially strong, elevated in the 10th house and a dominant vibration in his system of beliefs. Both are/were family men.
I checked Louise Hay for the meaning of both Parkinson’s and Cancer:
Parkinson’s Disease: ‘Fear and an intense desire to control everything and everyone.’
Cancer: ‘Deep hurt. Longstanding resentment. Deep secret or grief eating away at the self. Carrying hatreds. “What’s the use?”’
I must have attracted these people dead and alive, into my vibration as I have Mars, Uranus and Saturn as part of a T-square with the point on the IC (Cancer) which is now receiving a new activation from the progressed new moon in Capricorn. I want to prepare myself for next spring when Mars, Saturn and Pluto all wind up in Capricorn in my 6th house of daily life and health.
Something has to give.
Then I stumbled straight into this segment from an A-H workshop in San Antonio recently which addresses this topic and here it is:
