Cancer Astrology Profile in Relationships With Self and Others


David Linda onabreak IMG 2816 15 150x150 The Ultimate Cancer Astrology ProfileGoing forward, I will refer to the described Cancer Astrology profile, for both men and women as he, his, or him. The reason for this is that all descriptions herein are of the Masculine Mind (astrology sun sign), which is the masculine aspect of each of us. When we refer to the Masculine Mind, we refer to the thinking mind, the part of us that thinks, talks, and reasons. Reading about a Cancer Astrology profile being described as he, his, or him can be confusing at times, especially when we are talking about the Cancer Astrology profile of a woman. It may feel as though we are talking only about male Cancer Astrology profiles. We aren’t. Man or woman, herein we are talking about you, the masculine (thinking) aspect of you.

We look at the Masculine Mind, as opposed to the Feminine Mind, Authoritarian Mind, or Spiritual Mind, because the Masculine Mind is easiest to access and work with in enhancing Cancer Astrology profile relationships with others. For practical purposes, the training required to work with the other Cancer profile parts of the mind precludes them from general usefulness. Fear not. Working with the Cancer Masculine Mind is a powerful tool for understanding others and proactively creating and deepening Cancer profile relationships with self and others. Working with the Masculine Mind naturally opens up space for other parts of the mind to heal and grow. When Cancer profile Masculine Mind evolves and heals, so do his/her Feminine, Authoritarian, and Spiritual Minds. As Cancer Astrology profile men or women grow and heal, their relationships, both opposite or same sex, deepen and mature.

Cancer Astrology Profile Principle:

It is very important to keep in mind that every Astrology profile gets in trouble in life when he or she does too much of his or her natural Astrology profile. Cancer Astrology profile creates problems for itself and in its relationships when he or she does too much Cancer. The solution to Cancer profile problems, and the way Cancer grows personally and professionally, is for Cancer to move toward its opposite, Capricorn Astrology profile. The move to its opposite is difficult for all Astrology profiles. However, it is the move toward our opposites that allows all human beings to grow and evolve holistically–mind, body and spirit. It is also the move to our opposite Astrology profiles that allows us to heal and enhance our relationships with the most important people in our lives. The move to one’s opposite Astrology profile becomes a life mastery that allows us to create the relationships of our dreams.

Let’s take a look at a snapshot of Cancer Masculine Mind Profile (Astrology sun sign).

Cancer — The Family One, Bi-directional Discrimination – June 21–July 22 (opposite Capricorn)

Cancer Astrology Profile Snapshot

Xl Cancer3 300x300 The Ultimate Cancer Astrology ProfileBi-directional Discrimination means that the Character looks out and focuses on something in the world. Then, he looks in at the Feminine Mind (her) to see if what he sees in the outside world is important. In the beginning, the Feminine Mind tends to reject the outside object as not important. However, if Cancer Masculine Mind stays in one place long enough and sees the same person or object over and over, he will begin to identify with that person or object and give it value.

As the repetitions continue, Cancer begins to bond with the person or object and to nurture it. Since there are many people or objects in his view, Cancer begins to nurture his whole environment. He makes everything family. He becomes attached to the people and things in his environment, mothering them and working very hard at keeping things the same. In this way, he is very resistant to change in his environment.

While people in his environment may enjoy being nurtured and protected for a while, it is not uncommon for Cancer’s nurturing or protective behavior to begin to feel like controlling behavior to the ones he is nurturing. Because Cancer doesn’t see his desire to nurture as a need to control, he feels rejected when people pull away from his control. He sees his efforts as attempts to help, guide, or protect, as he thinks he knows what is best for people. Because Cancer identifies with the people in his environment, he will tend to blame those people if he is feeling down. When rejected, Cancer says, “After all I’ve done for you, this is how I’m treated!”

If people in Cancer’s environment are growing, he may not see the changes. Instead, he will maintain a picture of the people in his life that is based on a concept from the past. Consequently, he will continue to see “his people” as having the same needs they have always had. By being unable to see changes or personal growth in others, he is protecting his old concept. Unless they are growing, men and women with Cancer CType thus tend to become, respectively, “little old men” and “little old ladies” – conservative, attached to the past, trying to nurture, protect, and control everyone and everything in their environment. Cancer will feel very stuck when he thinks that his nurturing/protecting/controlling behavior is being rejected. Cancer will also feels like the weight of the entire world is falling squarely on his shoulders, a very heavy load indeed.
