Hi, everytime I see your name I wonder if you do shimmy?
Being a retired belly dancer, I've put in thousands of miles shimmying!
How was that
for a random thought?
You're a Cancer/Chiron Sun
I'm a Capricorn/Chiron Sun
The Cancer/Capriorn polarity is IMO, a tuff one to deal with. I mean look at what this combo is trying to integrate.......Cancer/Moon the
most sensitive and intuitive sign of all 12, The Mother or Goddess energies, profoundly deep feeling nature (which is so important IMO), Home both physically, psychologically, emotionally, spiritually, and nurturing self/all etc.
AND opposite all that is Capricorn/Saturn and vise versa. Capricorn/Saturn the
most physical, earthy, compressed, dense, heavy of all the 12 signs, The Father or 'Gods' energies, profound sense of responsibility, manifestating physically, responsibilities, and what 'Power' is all about in 3D.
It's sort of like night and day with these 2. I'd guess that when you do your Cancer thing and go within or retreat, that to keep functioning you slide into your opposite polarity, Capricorn, and that's
what might feel so hardened and cold. As you said though, Aquarius isn't all warm and fuzzy
naturally either unless they draw upon their opposite Leo heart. I'm just suggesting a deeper look/feel into the Cancer/Capricorn polarity too.
In a Barbara Hand Clow book she uses the keywords "Feeling Deeply" for Cancer and "Taking Power" for Capricorn. The big trick for all Cancers and Capricorns is to figure out how to do both! How to handle power (in different ways) AND at the same time always feel deeply! And vise versa. There's some deep clues with just these keywords she's used.
Now......add Shamanic Chiron conjuncting our Cancer/Capricorn Suns and we've got some deep issues to deal with I feel. Ancient very archetypal Light/Dark, God/Goddess, Mother/Father, Male/Female, Physical Power/Emotional Feelings, Solid/Liquid, etc.
I've been learning all my life about this deep split between these 2 powerful archetypes right down deep inside myself. For me this goes all the way back to ancient Lemuria and later Atlantis where this split originated on this planet I feel, at least within this last phase or cycle. Healing and integrating the split right/left brain and the male/female right inside each of us no matter what our astrological sign or physical sex in this life.
We've all heard the now common term....."The Mind/Body Connection". It's very true that thought (mind) creates what we experience in physicality and our bodies. But, the other half of this 4-some is this Cancer/Capricorn sort of archetypal energies......or The Emotional Feeling/Spiritual Connection
! With the rediscovery of Chiron back in 1977 the whole "Body Mind Connection" awareness started for humanity. I'm suggesting that we're having to now take this to the next level and incorporate the archetypal Goddess (Cancer)/Gods (Capricorn) or Emotional Feeling with the Spiritual to complete this 4 way split.
I'm not a religious person but this 4-some this + reminds me of people who cross (+) themselves. They touch their forehead or 3rd Eye chakra drawing upon their abilities to SEE the unseen, and then they touch their heart or Heart chakra drawing upon their abilites to FEEL deeply, and then they touch their right shoulder or side drawing upon their Inner Male Self, and lastly they touch their left shoulder or left side drawing upon their Inner Female Self in a beautiful symbol of +. Equal integration of Higher Vision/Mind/Heart and Male/Female within the physical body.
Who better than Chiron to help reteach us how to do this for ourselves now?
