Your path to higher knowledge has the potential to be realized via your genuine emotional connections with others.
Through exhibiting your capacity for warmth and nurturing, you’re able to serve as a sensitive teacher. An individual which creates avenues of intimate trust in order to disseminate wisdom gained through experience.
The natal placement of the Sun in Sagittarius suggests that the fuel which ignites your life force and sustains vitality is comprised of the freedom to explore and travel spiritually, intellectually and physically.
To shoot arrows of broad and free flying thought into the universe, asking the large scale questions which surround life’s meaning and illicit a panoramic search for truth.
You can span the globe by plane and or indulge yourself in “foreign” ways of thinking, philosophies and belief systems, with the hope of broadening one’s scope on life to form a more eclectic and comprehensive world view.
The Sagittarian fuel is used by the Cancerian Moon to reflect a personality form in which emotional security is a primary need.
In this case, emotional security is defined as :
a peaceful existence and a measure of stability in one’s feelings. The feeling safety which results from an environment which is supportive and non-threatening. Also, one which encourages open displays of love, affection and care.
With this Sun/Moon blend, not only is it important that you feelings be honored and respected, but also, your opinions and philosophical outlook. You must be supported in your quest to ask the large scale questions about the workings of the universe.
The placement of the Moon in Cancer suggests that fulfillment of your life potential resides in forging sincere, heartfelt alliances.
Forming bonds with a biological or ideological “family” which will allow you to display your potential gifts of emotional intelligence, acute intuition, and depth of feeling.
This blend has the potential to work well in that:
the gentle Cancer approach refines the strong thrust of Sagittarian intellect and also opens its channels to understand subtle undercurrents which can permeate one’s environment.
Conversely, the Sagittarian penchant for expansion provides a solid balance to the introverted energies of Cancer, which allows one to display what’s contained “in the shell” in a more outward fashion when necessary.
Astrologer Grant Lewi on the Sagittarius Sun, Cancer Moon Blend :
“This is a highly intuitive, poetic, and sensitive position with an adaptability that makes it possible for you to use your abilities in almost any field that you want to. Whether you select a business, professional or artistic career, you are likely to master and understand it.
You are capable of broad abstractions of thought- and of understanding details of philosophy- and hard business sense. When you are thinking clearly you can see through anyone or anything.”
“In all things -studies, business, love, ideas, philosophies- you should seek for depth rather than distance. In business, seek soundness rather than brilliance; in creation as in the arts, quality rather than quantity; in love, concentration rather than variety.
You will find the the reward of your great abilities and your high ideology directly in proportion as you concentrate and refuse to scatter your energies.”
Sagittarius, ruled by Jupiter, has the potential to elevate whatever it comes in contact with, and the lunar energies, as exhibited by Cancer, are no exception. One could say that the qualities associated with the Moon could be brought to the pinnacle of their potential, or exaggerated and distorted beyond belief.
With a sincere, straight shooting arrow, you can find the ultimate freedom in allowing your feelings to flow. This includes allowing yourself to be vulnerable in letting others know just how much they mean to you.
Through a wide ranging mind and rich faculties of imagination, painting a picture which motivates the spirit and stirs the fires of the heart is something you can do if you’re willing to aspire to understand the emotional framework of others as well as seek to reveal your sweet, tender interior underneath your solid covering.
It’s essential that you recognize and become well acquainted with the archetypal feminine (yin) energies which occupy your heart center, as they relate to the expression of the yang. This applies to both Women and Men alike, as the “masculine” and “feminine” are determined not by an absolute, but rather by a relative predominance of one set of characteristics over the other.
By way of the Cancer archetype, your Sagittarian energy can radiate throughout the grandeur of the cosmos.
