Cancer decan 2 is ruled by Mercury and the Mars (Scorpio triplicity). The Sun scorches its way through the constellations of the Twins, the Greater Dog, the Great Ship, the Lynx and the Unicorn from July 1 – 12. I am not surprise that there are some huge names on the celebrity lists below, since this decan contains probably the most famous star in the sky, Sirius. Cancer is awarded the important luminary, the Moon as its ruler since it the first month of northern summer.
The Moon is the second brightest object in the sky, when it is not being mysteriously dark! So it is befitting that Sirius should find its home in such a hot section of the ecliptic. We tend to think of Cancereans as being rather soft and pliable due to it being a water sign, but these people are no pushovers. Yes, when they are young they are as cute as hell with their trademark puppy dog eyes. Then they grow up to be great hairy wolves…in attractive sheepskin that is. The mix of water with the heat of Sirius makes these people incredibly sultry.
Devoted Wolves & Hermit Crabs
Take this fluffy wolf, then throw in Mercury the trickster and dark twin Pollux and you get a very intriguing breed of Cancerean indeed. In myth Mercury conversed between the gods and the underworld, he is a bridge and mediator between the two. There is a feel of being a guide here, a light in the inky black night. Dogs can guide the blind just as the stars guided the ships. There can be a distrust of this decan, possibly because it takes these people a little time to shake off the coal dust from the underworld. They can seem a little scary in the bright sunlight, their “black looks” showing up the wisdom lines in their faces, like coal miners. They come across like old souls in a child’s body which can be a bit disconcerting These folk’s super success may come from a deep feeling of being unworthy or tarnished in some way. Nevertheless these people are bright sparks and because of this attract a lot of envy. Often Cancer decan 2 don’t understand themselves why people are so jealous of them, when in fact they themselves are feeling envious of others.
