The Cancer Woman: “The Listening Heart”


Cancer Circle

Modus Operandi: Earth Mother, The “listening ear”, The archetypal feminine, the womb of safety, Ms./Mrs. Tenacious, A soothing presence, the intuitive, the soulful one, the keeper of the nest, poetic sensitivity.

Where you can find her: HOME. Out at a HOME furnishing store in an attempt to make her domain more comfortable for her, and those who should be so fortunate to enter. Curled up securely under several blankets watching a sentimental, tearjerker of a movie. At her favorite restaurant. In an antique shop. At a used bookstore. Vinyl shopping. Obtaining a degree in anything having to do with his(her)story, roots and origins.

As we navigate through life in this “dog eat dog” world, it becomes more and more of a rarity to encounter those who sincerely care about OUR day, OUR feelings and what makes us tick.  If you’re reading this and you’re a Cancer Woman (or attempting to get close to one), know that all things concerning nurturing are hard wired in your circuitry.

The way that you “take care”, and “feed” others emotionally is directly reflective of the level of security that you feel within that space. If your relatively comfortable that you can trust those around you, you’re safe and you won’t be betrayed, the hard shell makes way for the soft and vulnerable interior to emerge. However, make no mistake: each has it’s purpose in your life and both have the potential to serve you in your interaction with the world.

Developmental Lessons For Cancer


Cancer Circle

“The struggle to learn to listen to and respect our own intuitive , inner promptings is the greatest challenge of all.”
-Herb Goldberg

For those born with the Sun in Cancer, one of your essential developmental tasks is striking a balance between your emotionally vivid inner life and your interactions with the larger world. Consciously using your shell as an introspective haven of rest and retreat until it’s time to spring into action and handle earthly affairs.

One of the challenges of this task is making sure that intellect is not compromised by overly subjective emotional reactions. Conversely, that the ability to feel and take heed to intuitive promptings is not muted in the name of pure logic.

Cancers must yield to the signals of the still small voice within . It cannot, nor should it be ignored. In fact, these”gut feelings” may serve as markers which can call attention to potential dangers when a course of action is being contemplated.

On the flip side, using your internal radar can possibly link you to opportunities which are extremely beneficial on a spiritual, physical and psychological level.

Cancer: Listen not only with your ears and your mind, but also with your heart.
