Cancer & Turning Imaginative Catastrophe into Reality
With the moon as their ruler and the depth of water filling the lining of their skin, Cancerians have inherited one of the zodiac’s most tremendous and vivid imaginations. They tend to think in imagery and everything that is ‘outside the box’ and are constantly distracted by their dreams and the levity of their magical internal world. Known to rely on their intuition and gut feelings over their logic, the scope of their imagination can never be underestimated. Cancerians, compounded by the intensity of their mood shifts also find their imaginations somewhat self destructive. With the gift of romantic and idealistic fantasy also comes the threat of catastrophized imaginations and a reality filled with worst case scenarios, horrific danger and endless worry.
As the cycles of the moon wax and wane, as does the moon child, Cancer who moods attune with Luna’s shifts. The Cancerian personality is changeable and their inner state fails to remain neutral for long. As a water element, the depth of emotions within Cancer are more intense, and sustained for longer. It is within these darker moments, where the scope of their imagination becomes their worst enemy. There is no limit to the catastrophe and disaster their imagination can conjure and they find these fears and worries filter through every aspect of their existence.
Cancerians can find themselves endlessly worried and anxious about scenarios that do not exist. They may ruinate, lose sleep and have stomach aches with a sense that everyone has turned against them. The Cancer personality is deeply complex, and the depth of their imaginations equally so. Many Cancerian writers - Ernest Hemingway, Herman Hesse, George M Cohen have proved the world within is full of wonder, blessing and gorgeous imagery, and many Cancerians find themselves writing creative fiction.
The intuitive powers and renowned creativity that a Cancer possesses work as a great guiding force for them. Many times they can fall into utopian worlds to escape from the harshness of reality, but sometimes, these worlds can turn very dangerous, and very dark.
