|Cancer is 'I feel'
Cancer is the awareness of feeling.
The Cancer objective is to maintain emotional security. This feeling of safety is primarily experienced through caring and nurturing particularly within the family and the home environment.
Its strategy is giving and receiving from the heart. Cancer obtains this by being a 'mother' and protector, often with children, animals and in situations where there is a need for care.
Cancer lives through its feelings. Its emotions are extremely personalized and run very deep. Because of this, Cancers fear of being hurt is ever present, building up a strong defence mechanism in order to survive. Cancer needs to be aware of not remaining shelled emotionally, cutting off from feeling altogether and impeding the flow of sensitivity through their life.
Cancer needs to embrace its feelings and use them well as the vehicle toward a fuller experience of life.
Cancer needs to belong; this connects it with the home, the mother image and the past. This makes Cancer highly vulnerable to early childhood experiences and the memory of the past can stay in effect well into adult life.
Cancer energy is sensitive, instinctive, moody and sentimental.
