What does the glyph for the sign of Cancer mean? Look more closely it is not the number 69!

Long before the Zodiac signs were related to animals they were represented by numbers and explained through sutras—poetic phrase. The sign we call Cancer is sign number four.
This is an area which represents contentment and deeper rooting. The heart and emotional capacity as well as a sense of home and security are established here. It is where an individual begins to thrive through understanding and is given the opportunity to gain autonomy. The Lunar Goddess rules all of this and her phases lead us through monthly patterns associated with this ebb and flow of evolutionary progress.

The symbol of the sign number IV Cancer, is easily mistaken for numeral sixty nine, but it is not!
Look more closely and you can see the two circles which represent the new and full moon and two crescents which represent the 1st quarter and the last quarter phases.

The crab was chosen as the animal to represent the sign due to habitual behavior like considering home and collecting of great importance as well as nocturnal preference. Perhaps also due to the claws resembling the path of the Lunar orb!
Engage me for a session and open up a whole new world of greatness and happiness!

Summer Solstice and a Full Moon in Cancer June 20, 2016©Ambika Devi

A Solstice is a powerful energetic gateway whose energy covers an arc of three days. This is due to a reduction in the magnetic field of our Earth which allows a greater influx of cosmic radiation to penetrate the atmosphere. This profoundly affects our psyche, the body, and our DNA.
The Moon peaks to Full tomorrow morning East Coast time just twelve hours before the Cancer Ingression of the Summer Solstice here in the Northern hemisphere and the Winter Solstice in the Southern Hemisphere.
Having a Full Moon crown so closely to this seasonal event is a rare occurrence. This greatly magnifies the transformative potential. The last time there was a full moon on the same day as the Cancer Solstice was in 1967 and the next time is to be 2062 utilizing UT or Universal Time to measure. The last time we had a Full Moon of grace a solstice was December 21, 2010.
Here is the chart:
Think back to those dates. What was going on in your life? Take time to journal and draw about it. What were you dreaming of changing? Now ask yourself what you really want for your personal happiness and the wellbeing of the greater. 

The energy of the sign of Cancer provides and environment of contentment and deeper rooting. The heart and our emotional capacity as well as a sense of home and security are established here within this sign. When we experience the moon in her home sign of the number four, our emotions intensify as well as the potential for clear Psychic vision. When we are under the influence of the sign of Cancer we thrive through understanding and are given the opportunity to gain autonomy.
