The Sun represents the essential energy that illuminates the rest of existence. The Sun represents light, consciousness, will, power, desire, and experience.
When the Sun moves into Cancer, our emotional intelligence is illuminated. Cancer, the second cardinal sign of the zodiac, connects us with our roots and our source of being. Because Cancer represents our emotional awareness, it is also closely attuned with the past, particularly our childhoods, family histories, and our homelands. With an emphasis on the past and the home, Cancer symbolizes the need for emotional safety and security. In turn, Cancer expresses this outwardly through its naturally generous and nurturing nature, particularly as a reflection of what it has already experienced from others. Cancer genuinely wants you to be a part of its community because its nature is to be concerned with the family and inclusion—Cancer also takes its “framily” very seriously. Ever notice that Cancers have great memories? This is because Cancer is ruled by the Moon, which represents the emotional mind. When events or circumstances leave lasting impressions on us, it is usually through the Moon, and therefore Cancer, that we recall these experiences.
Cancer’s motto is, “I feel.”
For those fortunate to be born with the Sun in Cancer, you are likely to be caring, protective, patriotic, sensitive, and deeply attached to your family and personal interests.
The house in which you have Cancer in your chart shows the areas of your life in which you seek emotional security, protection, familial service, and support.
