Cancer is a cardinal water sign, whose dates fall between June 21 and July 22 of most calendar years. The zodiac sign is depicted by the Crab glyph, and is ruler of the astrological 4th House of home, family, and foundations.
Like the other water signs, Cancer is a master of the smokescreen. Rather than addressing things directly, they circumvent, side-step, and keep desires close to their chest. Yet despite this tendency to keep secrets, Cancer is usually much loved by the outside world. My Dad is a Cancer, and everyone who has never lived with him, loves him. He’s chatty and charming and chuckling. But that’s only when he’s in a good mood. The rest of the time, he’s as irritable as a hungry newborn. Or surly as a bear just woken out of hibernation.

This is a mere morsel of the 30-page ebook, Cancer: The Genesis, which is part of my 360-page astrology book, The Zodiac Abstract. What else is in Cancer: The Genesis? Information pertaining to every aspect of Cancer, from the way they look and think, to the way they act and interact with others. What’s more, I dive deep into the mythology of the cardinal water sign, including its planetary ruler (the Moon) and its native astrological 4th House.
Within this ebook are 30 pages of enlightening and invaluable astrology information about Cancer’s element, modality, House and planetary associations, and more, written in a lucid, humorous, and undoubtedly Cosmic Cannibal way.
Cancer: The Genesis is broken up into four sections. In the first section I describe the physical characteristics and aesthetic preferences and themes of the cardinal water sign.
Following that is THE GUTS, where I define how Cancer reasons, feels, and conducts themselves, as well as what their character strengths are, and also what diversions and occupations they are drawn to.
Next, in THE GLYPH, I explain the meaning of the Crab glyph and Moon rulership by way of myths, constellations, and other fun seemingly unrelated material.
The third and final section, THE GRIEF, is written as a guidebook for spotting and solving the most common, yet commonly overlooked Cancer behavioral predicaments.
