Sweet Cancer needs more things to celebrate them! Get a gift for your favorite crab and for your SELF too!

Cancer is the fourth sign of the Zodiac. This is why it's the mother of the world. It is the nurturing water that feeds the Spring seeds so they bloom as Summer arrives. Notice how whiteness has made us focus on motherhood as an unpaid, thankless duty born by those socialized as female rather than allowing everyone to have a nurturing, sensitive Cancer side. Yes, it can be overprotective & nativist but that's because it's trying to support the family NOT because it's inherently othering. As you study Cancer make sure you don't allow the steady stream of emotional keywords to distract you from its strong, intuitive nature. We must allow the Cancer part of us (and of others) to be able to express both sides to be complete. The mother who holds on so tight the offspring is crushed hasn't done their ShadowWeRK. A mother who knows when to let go & when to push a little is a balanced Cancer. *Please stop seeing mother as a gendered word, thanks.
