Cancer Decan 3 ~ July 12 to 22 2022. The weekly horoscope runs as an Egyptian week, ie 10 days. It will start as the Sun moves into a new decan and looks at what fixed stars it hits during the decanate week. The star interpretations are written for those born with their Sun on that degree, but the general mood of the day will carry that flavour too.
Cancer decan 3 tends to be the moodiest of all the crabs. One never knows if they will be sunny or shadowy. Colourful emotions are great for creativity however. As artists they throw themselves right into their work with no holding back. Feelings flood out onto the canvas and touch the public profoundly. In love they are utterly, utterly devoted to a fault. This can be quite overwhelming for their beloved. Therefore it is essential to find an artistic or musical outlet in order to process their deep dark passions and euphoric highs.
Giddy Artists & Mood Swings
The Tarot card associated with this decan is the 4 of Cups. The ambivalence shown in this card fits well with the polarisation of this decan. A card of boredom and apathy on the one hand and daydreaming and fantasizing about the other. Maybe this card longs for the dramatic mood swings that govern this decan.
“The Four of Cups generally brings with it the blues and moodiness. (Cancer decan 3 is the moodiest, moon ruled decan) In some cases it can highlight depression…you may have lost touch with reality and are totally ungrounded. You may have allowed yourself to indulge in daydreams and fantasies and have become too idealistic imaging life to be a certain way.”
Karmically this card can mean too many lives have been spent procrastinating, and waiting for the 100% perfect person or opportunity to come along. It “can sometimes simply highlight the fact that you are too tied up in your own little world, too self-absorbed and too self-centred. You may feel that the whole universe revolves around you and have no time for other people’s problems or feelings. You may seem negative to others and see the ‘glass as half empty’ in this negative state of mind.”~ Teachmetarot.
Cancer 20º 14’ ~ Castor in the head of the mortal twin in Gemini 1.5 *
Cancer 20º 40’ ~ Adara in the back leg of the Canis Major the Greater Dog 1.5
Castor is the ‘good’ mortal twin and was a horse trainer, he holds a harp in his hand representing musical talent and artistry. Castor was refined and civilised, but still got into scrapes with his wilder brother Pollux however. The influence of the darkside is never far away. Robson say Castor “ gives distinction, a keen intellect, success in law and many travels, fondness for horses, sudden fame and honor”…. However this great success can often be followed by “loss of fortune and disgrace, sickness, trouble and great affliction. Its natives are said to be mischievous and prone to violence.”
Eric Morse says “Castor is also noted in natal astrology for proneness to mental breakdowns and neurotic distress. People with this star prominent and well aspected are exceptionally gifted intellectually. Where these geniuses often need help is in not letting their concern for others go ‘over the top’.”  Adara in Canis Major has no interpretations, but in Hebrew it means “adorned, dear, darling, adulation, and adored” This fits well with this decan’s devoted and faithful nature combined with the dogs reputation for fidelity and faith in its master.

Cancer 22º 12’ ~ Gomeisa in the neck of the Canis Minor the Lesser Dog 3.1
Gomeisa is a white star found in the neck of the Lesser Dog, the Beta star of Canis Minor. “Gomeisa or Al-Ghumaisa’ is translated as “The bleary-eyed one”, “The Weeping One”, or “The Wateried Eyed” It is interesting the connection with water, tears and grieving as Canis Minor represents “Maera, the hound of Icarius, who drowned himself on account of his grief at the death of his master.”
On the more positive side this star was often combined by the Arabs with star Mirzam (In Canis Minor in Cancer Decan 1) “these two beta stars together were titled “The Announcers”, heralding the coming of Sirius, the biggest star in the sky, because they rose before Sirius in the night sky. In Arabia they were imagined as two dogs. One can imagine barking dogs announcing the arrival of visitors, or barking dogs bringing something to people’s attention: Many radio and TV announcers are influenced by either of these two stars.”
Cancer 23º 00’ ~ Musida on the muzzle of Ursa Major the Great Bear 3.5
Nothing specifically is written for Musida but it is found in Ursa Major which “According to Ptolemy, Ursa Major is like Mars. It is said to give a quiet, prudent, suspicious, mistrustful, self-controlled, patient nature, but an uneasy spirit and great anger and revengefulness when roused.” These folk make great lion tamers, but can equally apply to disciplining wild children also.
Manilus says “to those born at such a time wild creatures will show no hostile face, and in their dealings with animals these men will find them submissive to their rule. Such a one will be able to control huge lions with a gesture, to fondle wolves, and to play with captive panthers; … he will dispel the fury of the tiger, training it to become a peaceful animal.”

Cancer 23º 13’ ~ Pollux in the head of the Immortal Twin in Gemini 1.1
Cancer 23º 24’ ~ Wezen in the heart of Canis Major the Greater Dog 2.0
Pollux, the immortal twin was a boxer, he holds a club in his hand. Not surprisingly he has a bad reputation “It gives a subtle, crafty, spirited, brave, audacious, cruel and rash nature, a love of boxing, dignified malevolence, and is connected with poisons.”. It is considered extremely Martian. “Just as Mars has it’s good sides if the energy it creates is channelled constructively, so Pollux should not always be considered as unhelpful. The star badly placed could manifest that way, not by the native misusing his energy but by others deceiving him and fate playing him some cruel tricks.” .
Cancer 25º 47’ ~ Procyon in the body of Canis Minor the Little Dog 0.3
Procyon, like the Gemini Twins, has mixed reviews. On the one hand it’s regarded as highly fortunate and then it is seen as crafty and violent. Nevertheless Procyon seems to be lucky despite its hot temper. Described as “petulant, saucy, giddy,” Procyon can be brave and extremely impulsive, rushing into calamity without thinking. These little dogs are real, dare-devils and think that they are indestructible. Maybe they are, since this star is supposed to give “Wealth, fame, and good fortune.”  So Procyon is like that annoying, yappy dog with an attitude. It will skip around the legs of a much taller, superior dog and confuse the hell out of it. A high-risk strategy perhaps, but you can’t help admire the little smart arse. Procyon is geek power at its very best.
The lesser dog actually rides the constellation of the Unicorn and looks pretty grand in the sky. This helps Cancer Decan 3 gain position by making all the right connections in the right places. “Procyon gives drive and a good sharp mind. Linked with positive stellar bodies, success is made greater, but the native, in order to avoid a fiasco, has always to take care not to be imprudent.”  Procyon is a very bright star so I’m giving it a wide orb. This means the Sun will align with it for a few more days than most stars.
Cancer 29º 04’ ~ Alpha Monoceros in the Monoceros the Unicorn 4.0
Alpha Monoceros is one of the brightest stars in the mysterious constellation of the Unicorn.“The unicorn’s horn was said to have the property of being able to neutralize poisons. The picture of a Unicorn was the apothecaries’ symbol. The powdered root of the ‘unicorn horn’ was believed to be a panacea for just about all illnesses.” It makes these people mysterious, but also natural healers. Most people can’t make how how these folk do heal and will often call the ability miraculous. Sometimes of course this ability to cure will be called witchcraft.
Cancer 29º 18’ ~ Aludra in the tail of Canis Major the Greater Dog 2.4
Aludra is from Al Adhra, the singular of Al Adhara, and one of that group. “The maidenhead”, or “the Virgins”, These terms are also “applied to this star along with delta (Wezen), epsilon (Adara),” The other two stars mentioned also reside in this decan. Manilus says of Canis Major in general “it will fashion unbridled spirits and impetuous hearts; it will bestow on its sons billows of anger, and draw upon them the hatred and fear of the whole populace.” Not the most restrained of Virgins then…
