Cancer 5 ~ “What’s the ‘motto’? Be the change.”


“What’s the ‘motto’? Be the change.”

The Span of Expansion

Phase 95

Water Element

Dr. Marc Edmund Jones provides the official meaning of this Sabian symbol in his work, The Sabian Symbols in Astrology:

Cancer 5° An automobile wrecked by a train

This is a symbol of the irresistible power of completion inherent in the very make-up of man’s world whenever a sequence of events once is set in motion, as is evident continually on the objective side of things. Implicit in the reversed symbolism is the concept of control, or the assurance that it is not necessary to continue any given action to the point of self-cancellation. The ultimate obligation of the individual is to himself, and not to the narrow and momentary direction of circumstances.

The keyword is DISPERSION

When positive, the degree is a special genius for a creative reorganization of all experience, and when negative, an insensitive recklessness.

The formula is: sustaining-critical-universal-specializing-physical-inspired.

“Our principles are the springs of our actions. Our actions, the springs of our happiness or misery. Too much care, therefore, cannot be taken in forming our principles.” — Red Skelton

Interesting : This degree symbol is the opposite of the degree on Christmas Day, and therefore also included in the cross of the degree of Capricorn 5. Think about that. Hold that thought. Are you with me? Today is the upside-down cross of Christmas, the archetypal and symbolic birth of Christ.

This degree falls in the month of Ramadan

Interesting: The word Ramadan comes from the Arabic root ramiḍa or ar-ramaḍ, which means scorching heat or dryness. Ramadan … is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, and is observed by Muslims worldwide as a month of fasting (Sawm) to commemorate the first revelation of the Quran to Muhammad according to Islamic belief. This annual observance is regarded as one of the Five Pillars of Islam. The month lasts 29–30 days based on the visual sightings of the crescent moon, according to numerous biographical accounts compiled in the hadiths.” Wikipedia: Ramadan

“So whoever of you lives to see (this month of Ramadan) should fast through it…” Surah Baqarah 2:184

Interesting: This degree and the two preceding, Cancer 3, 4 and 5, are also associated with the Feast Day of St. John the Baptist, on June 24th. One might also call to mind in this mix the Shakespearean play A Midsummer’s Night Dream, as was suggested to me. Riveting! The all-night fires lit to bring in the Feast of St. John, on St. John’s Eve, June 23rd, are protective in nature….

“When the sun sets on 23 June, Saint John’s Eve, is the eve of celebration before the Feast Day of Saint John the Baptist. The Gospel of Luke (Luke 1:36, 56–57) states that John was born about six months before Jesus; therefore, the feast of John the Baptist was fixed on 24 June, six months before Christmas Eve. This feast day is one of the very few saints’ days which commemorates the anniversary of the birth, rather than the death, of the saint being honored. The Feast of Saint John closely coincides with the June solstice, also referred to as Midsummer in the Northern hemisphere. The Christian holy day is fixed at 24 June; but in most countries festivities are mostly held the night before, on Saint John’s Eve.” Wikipedia: St John’s Eve

A Collision – A transference of energy – Change of the Highest Degree

So there is quite a puzzle here. Sensitive ones will understand the intensity of such energy in collision. Yang Mills Theory is suggested for a mathematical study in the scientific understanding of the quantum nature of such collisions—a train and an auto—of rotation and collision—of transference—of the mysteries and the yet-unanswered questions…

May I suggest these five as a great starting point,

That’s what I poured into myself on Cancer 5–if collision can’t be avoided, then get wrecked by the greater power of understanding. Where angels fear to tread….
