Cancer, Leo and Virgo are the 3 signs governing the Summer quadrant of the Year’s circle.

 Summer begins as the Sun touches the Tropic of Cancer the northernmost latitude it reaches is 23.5 degrees

At Summer Solstice we state what it is we are pregnant with,nourishing, nurturing feeding, watching over, our literal children or all of our creations, ideas, desires, feelings. We carry this and give birth, and the fields, flowers, produce grows, soaks up the sun’s most intense rays in Leo and is finally ready to be Harvested under the sign of Virgo the Virgin Goddess of the Grain. In agricultural societies all life depended on the food grown, the produce that would be stored, dried, preserved,for life to continue safely and securely.

The sign of Cancer rules the Mother and the mothering prinicle.It is ruled by the Moon herself. The Moon is the Goddess aspect always. The earliest calendars discovered showed 28 dots on them and were created by menstruating women or men following the moon’s cycle and women’s menstrual cycles which work in tandem.

In Ancient Egypt the Summer Sign was symbolized by the Scarab beetle before it was associated with the Crab. The scarab or dung beetle rolled its ball of dung and was seen to be like a God rolling the golden orb of the Sun across the skies. The dung beetle was the shepherd or charioteer assisting the Sun’s passage in the sky. The scarab is a symbol of immortality.  The sign of Cancer symbolized alchemy because the insect was a lowly creature, ordinary, lowly turning with its’ labours dung into worth = gold.

The esoteric meaning of Cancer is that the CHARIOT is the VEHICLE, the means of travel.

The Chariot symbolizes the Body as Vehicle for the Soul.  

Chariot cancer Astrology Tara Greene

this is the Chariot from the Visconti Tarot deck Italy, 1500’s.

Our Mother’s bodies were our personal chariot’s. They nurtured and carried us, gave birth to us through their VAGINA’s,  the VAGINA can also be seen as a road, a passageway, a tunnel to the outside world from inner earth.

The Hopi Indian‘s s say they emerged from inside of the earth.

 We inCARnate from the ethers,  spirit always speaks in puns= chariot = car

Here’s a very modern take on The Chariot fashion designer Vivienne Westwood’s Chariot with Pamela Anderson

from spirit, from fractals, quantum bits of energy, carbon, star-dust, gold to become forged and formed within our mother’s wombs. Mother is the Universal  source for all life, She is our safety, our security,in the dark with only her heartbeat to beat the rhythm of our journey. When we gaze at the moon we instinctively remember her womb.

So during the month of Cancer, feel your body. Be near water, drink lots of water, feel pregnant,  swelling, expanding, bonded, needing to nest, eating well, resting, listening to your tummy.

Cancer’s gemstone although not actually a stone  is the PEARL

The Pearl of great price and great Wisdom

Like the lotus which grows from mud, and the lowly dung beetle which rolls its ball of dung, the beautiful iridescent moon like pearl  is formed from a single grain of sand.

You won’t be lacklustre curing Cancer month. You can turn every irritating or single grain of sand into a beautiful pearl.

 In the usual strange synchronicity two of the chariot images I found were all related to MEDEA, I found a Georges Braque sculptur of Medea’s chariot, and the other dragon pulled Medea’s chariot which I thought was more appropriate in a DRAGON year.  Medea is  the dark mother, which is related more to the 2nd water sign SCORPIO, We will get deeply into SCorpio water’s soon enough when Lord of KArma SATURN DR. D. enters Scorpio on  Oct, 5 Sexy scorpio coming up. more later…
