Cancer…The Archetype

“ I Seek Myself Through What I Feel”
Cancer is the Universal Mother that sustains and nurtures life. Represented by the Crab, Cancer is a creature of both land and sea. Feeling life sensually and physically it is the sign that represents home, our roots, relationships to the tribe and our karmic past.
It is the purpose of Cancer to establish an anchor on the earth plane to ground Spirit in physical form. This forage makes Cancer tenacious in its search for home. Through this search a deeper truth is revealed; the discovery of a spiritual home and inner light within. This true home is the anchor that grounds Spirit, affording Cancer to serve and nourish the whole of humanity.
The early stages of the less developed Cancerian will be bound to the emotional influences of their environment. Unaware of self as an individual and completely identified with tribal (familial) living Cancer will replay karmic patterns keeping itself in the cycle of homeostasis. At this level home is represented by a physical dwelling.
As awakening occurs and the inner journey begins, a new path is forged.  A clearer sense of boundaries and separateness from instinctual co-dependency evolves. This maturity moves Cancer from tribal home to finding home wherever it may go.  Self-expression and an urge to find its own place in life are applied while continuing to maintain selfless and nurturing aspirations.
At its highest vibration there is a depth and fulfillment when the integrated Cancer connects to its true home; the soul. At this level of evolution the “Cancer Soul” expresses its devotion to humanity.  What was once separation to break free and find its place in life is now an illumination of universal love and universality of life.  From this place Cancer’s path is to serve and nourish the whole of humanity.
We all have the influence of Cancer energy running through us. For some it will be more compelling than others. And that search for inner peace, is in our “real home” and that conscious journey home is inward.
