What Does the Zodiac Sign Cancer Represent?

HOME. Cancer rules over the comforts of home.  This includes anything super cozy, snug, pleasant, delightful, and comfortable.  For example, soft blankets, a cup of hot chocolate, a welcoming jacuzzi tub, flowers, candles, the art on your wall, warm smells from the kitchen, and a good book by the fire are all assigned to the Cancer zodiac sign.  The delicious food in your fridge, cupboards, and the cuisine that is served for dinner is also found here.  All of your domestic surroundings are supported by the Cancer sign.

The actual place where you live is determined by the Cancer sign.  It’s all about nurture, comfort, and motherhood.  Cancer is responsible for nourishment and the provision of care in order to support life.  A person’s growth and development are heavily attributed to this sign.  All these things often take place in the home.  The property around your home is also included here.
YOUR CAR.  All vehicles are ruled by the Cancer zodiac sign.  They become part of your home once you park them on your property.  A car also has a hard shell around it, much like the hard protective shell around Cancer the crab.  The hard shell is designed to protect the life inside.  A car’s hard exterior protects the driver inside.  You will notice that a car has 4 wheels, just like the 4th sign position in the zodiac.  Patterns of 4 appear over and over in the Cancer sign.
HAPPINESS.  Some people ask, “What zodiac sign is mental illness?”.  Unlike Gemini, which rules over the stability of one’s mind (up and down), Cancer is responsible for a person’s overall happiness and general outlook on life.  It determines whether or not you are a “happy person”.  Some people are naturally pessimistic.  Some people are naturally optimistic.  Whichever one you are, or colors in between, this is ruled by the Cancer zodiac sign (important:  also check the 4th house).  It will be up to the planets to determine the specific outcome in this sign.  Because the Moon rules over your emotions, you can see how this will influence a person’s disposition and mood (the Moon rules Cancer).
SOCIALIZING.  Making connections with other people is a Cancer sign thing.  This is especially so when it is done inside of a house or a building, in particular.  For example, the coming together and mingling of students in a classroom is assigned to the Cancer zodiac sign.  The school building is a hard barrier shell to protect the life of the students within, just as the crab’s shell protects the flesh inside.  A house party can be seen from this sign for the same reason.  Your very close friends can be found here.  Socializing promotes happiness and general comfort, especially in the home environment.
WATER.  Anything you see that contains water is ruled by the Cancer zodiac sign.  Wells, reservoirs, tanks, milk, rivers, lakes, perfume, blood, swimming pools, the ocean, and ponds are all found in this sign.  For the same reason, Cancer is in charge of rain.
YOUR PETS.  Quadrupeds (animals with 4 legs) are ruled by the Cancer zodiac sign.  This includes all of your 4-legged pets (e.g., cats and dogs), not only because they have 4 legs like the 4th zodiac sign energy, but because they are also a part of your home.  Pets at home are a Cancer thing.  Some astrologers assign pets to Virgo (or the 6th house), yet ancient scriptures reveal that the animals in Virgo are meant to be large service animals, intended for work, not to be part of the home environment.  Cancer is about the animals you consider part of your home.  Virgo is about the large animals you use for work and service (e.g., to plow a field). 
What planet rules pets? 
The Moon in the Cancer zodiac sign (for pets at home with 4 legs).  Mercury in Virgo rules the large animals used for work and service.
YOUR MOTHER.  If you want to learn more about your mother, just look to the sign of Cancer (or the 4th house) in your chart.  You will be amazed at how remarkably true the findings are!  Look at the planets here as well as the planet that rules your 4th house.  This is where you will see how astrology paints a perfect picture of your mother.  The Sun is the male planet (king) and the Moon is the female planet (queen).  The Sun is the father and the Moon is the mother. Since the Moon rules Cancer, it is in charge of all maternal qualities. Please consider using the sidereal zodiac.

The level of your mother’s happiness is determined by Cancer.  If happy planets are in the sign, you will have a happy mother.  If wicked planets are in the sign, you may have a difficult mother.  You must also look at aspects to determine other influences on her level of happiness.
YOUR RELATIVES.  Your mother’s side of the family, maternal uncle, and family relatives can be seen from the Cancer zodiac sign.
BUILDINGS.  Buildings are assigned to the Cancer zodiac sign because of the hard protective barrier they provide to sustain the life inside.  This can include buildings of any kind:  schools, colleges, hospitals, banks, government offices, hotels, stores, a palace, etc.  Remember to keep in mind that most rooms and buildings have 4 walls.  We continue to see patterns of 4 in this sign. 

What is the significance of number 4 in astrology?

Pay close attention to patterns of 4 in nature:  a 4-leaf clover, 4 legs on a dog, 4 walls in a room, 4 corners on a square.  You will start to discover that the number 4 is often linked to the Cancer zodiac sign, which is the 4th sign going in order.  The number 4 holds a frequency-specific energy that matches the Cancer zodiac sign.  This energy corresponds to very specific things like home, the mother, nurture, the comforts of home, and your car (read the rest of this article to fully understand Cancer energy).  The number 4 makes certain things manifest in the real world (we are living in a matrix ruled by numbers and mathematical codes).  The 4th house in astrology is also ruled by the Cancer sign.  You will discover that many things occurring in 4’s are often tied to this sign.    

When is the Cancer sign stronger?

According to Kalyana Varma Saravali astrology, the Cancer zodiac sign is strongest between 15-30 degrees at dawn and dusk.  It is important to use the sidereal zodiac for this calculation in order for the effects to actually manifest.  Experiment for yourself to determine which zodiac is true in your life (tropical or sidereal).

What location does the Cancer sign rule over?

The Cancer zodiac sign rules over land, especially lands that frequently receive a lot of water.  This includes agricultural lands like orchards, farms, pastures, fields, lawns, and wetlands where rice is grown.  The garden at your house is ruled by the Cancer sign.

What body part is Cancer ruled by?

The 12 zodiac signs each represent a very specific part of your body.  Cancer represents your heart.  It also rules over a woman’s chest, considering this is the area where milk is produced and babies are nourished (milk, mother, and nurture are all Cancer energy).  Your body is composed of all 12 zodiac signs, yet, they will be expressed differently in each person depending on the various positions of the planets, houses, and signs in each chart. 

It is extremely important to know and understand that you are not defined exclusively by your general zodiac sun sign.  If you define yourself as a Cancer, that means you are only putting your attention on a small part of your actual existence.  The human body is composed of all 12 zodiac signs.  If we limit the definition of our personality to only one of the 12 signs, we may be seriously shortchanging ourselves.  The point in astrology is to know how you relate to all 12 of the zodiac signs and how you are affected when the planets move in and out of each one of the signs.  Your body holds and understands all of the energetic and magnetic qualities of the 12 zodiac signs, not just the one you identify with in your horoscope.  Perhaps your Sun was in the Cancer sign when you were born (sidereal zodiac is recommended).  There, the Sun will shine a strong and soulful light into the sign of Cancer, thus showing those qualities in your behavior, feelings, and relationship with yourself.  But what happens when Jupiter moves into the sign of Cancer, will that change how you relate to your own sign?  Yes!!!  The sign of Cancer will show up in different ways depending on what planets are sitting in it and moving through it.

With that in mind, the above description is not intended to identify and limit you to one sign only.  If your Sun is in Cancer, you will most definitely exhibit many strong and beautiful qualities of that sign in your life, probably stronger than those who do not have their Sun there.  However, it is good to be aware of where your other planets are sitting and in what signs.  This can help you understand the way you feel about and function in the world.

The sign of Cancer is like a magnet.  It attracts very specific qualities, objects, and events into your life.  Think of Cancer as a segment of energy that the planets travel through in the sky. When a planet enters the segment of Cancer, the energy will “spray out” from that sign into the world as we see it, causing us to experience the energy in super obvious ways.  These “ways” are described above.

Astrology by 33 supports the view that astrology should be used only as a guideline, not as something that rules your life.  All people have free will and hold the power to overcome the magnetism of the planets and signs.  The practice of Kriya Yoga is a highly effective way to reduce your negative karma (you can learn it from a Master of Kriya Yoga, who preferably still alive).  If we know what the planets and signs are doing, we can navigate our path with greater ease and awareness.  With God, all things are possible.  We have the strength and ability to rule over our own actions instead of giving that power to the cosmos.  The kingdom is within You.
