Cancer Independence Days

It occurred to me that several countries have their independence days in July/Cancer month. Off the top of my head, the U.S., Canada, and France. The Cancer theme of homeland, our people, seems to fit very well with a patriotic holiday. That got me wondering if sun in Cancer month is a particularly big one for independence days globally.

So, I looked it up. There are indeed quite a few national independence days in July, and in late June. But there are about as many in Leo month, and the most in Virgo month.

I wonder if there is any particular correlation between Cancer and the official formation of a new country. Do the countries that don't celebrate their birthdays under a Cancer sun perhaps have other significant Cancer in their natal charts? Has that been studied anywhere?

Seems like they would be more matriarchal, under the Signs & . Russia used the "Mother Russia" theme, at least before the Bolshevik revolution. Germany used "Fatherland", which links to the word "patriotic". Of course, we have the Statue of Liberty, which is feminine. "Lady Liberty".

I'm thinking of Cancer in a more general sense. Yes, it's the matriarch sign, but it's also about family, roots, and your people, in general.

I also find it significant that LGBTQ Pride comes during Cancer month. Identity and people in another sense.

Speaking of countries with Cancer independence days, France's national anthem refers to "la patrie," also fatherland. "Allons enfants de la patrie...."

Yes, and banding together for group security.

Re: Cancer Independence Days

The twin culture nations USA and Canada are different countries, but as cancerian, they strongly value unity and community. American liberty patriotism and Canadian multicultural unity are cancerian in having every person as an equal member in society. And may I add the republic of France founded after the Bastille uprising to started the French revolution on July 14, 1789, a new regime values liberty, equality and fraternity. The city of Paris named for the Parisii, a Celtic or Gallic tribe is thought to named themselves after a female deity represented either by Venus or the moon which is ruled by Cancer.

Re: Cancer Independence Days

Don't forget the fact Cancer is cardinal water. There's a facet of independence inherent in cardinality mixed with water, independence of self and desire to express one's ideals and in a way, bring them into tangible reality forming a poetic crosspoint to the opposing Earth element. Cardinal water = very spiritually charged action and creation which could include destruction of what came before for the sake of bringing in something new


Also, Cancer isn't geared toward group security. It's more likely to steer away from the group entirely to find security in the self. So if security has anything to do with independence of nations, it's about creating an environment that's more liberating and free as Cancer(ruled by the moon) is a highly spiritual and intuitive sign so the state of things may not suit it. Cardinality and that emotionally charged water gears it more toward either causing mass change in the external, or retreating into the internal. Not group security


Picture it like a bomb building up internally until it must destroy its shell, march boldly into the external world, and spur that massive change


You really have to go down to the bare essential facets of signs rather than looking at stereotypes. Cancer= cardinal water. So what is the energy of cardinal water beyond all stereotypes? Cardinal is actually leadership energy, desire to DO something, change something, start something new, create. Water is soulful, emotional, mostly inclined to be calm. But mixed with cardinality? It's about spiritually charged creation and seeking liberation of the soul so it can breathe


And... Cancer isn't about physical home, it's about spiritual home. It's not about security, it's about liberation of spirit. People often speak of Cancer as if it's an Earth sign. It's a water sign. So if it seeks security, what is that security? It's about the spirit. So this plays into seeking of independence on a grand level as often the external world can feel constricting to Cancerian energy which eventually spurs it into action to change something so that it can breathe

Re: Cancer Independence Days

Cardinality changes tides, brings in something new, changes the chapter, changes the season, changes the book entirely. That relates directly to national independence. It's different from Air, Earth, and Fire in that Water and Cardinal seem to be at odds with each other, but because of that, they create intense change, that conflict, as conflicts do, is the fuse for the bomb and then comes massive change

The grand majority of people really do not understand Cancer, imo. Highly misunderstood sign


Always got to remember that the moon symbolizes the soul and that Cancer is a water sign, not an Earth sign. So its concerns aren't material, but internal. And thus its association with security is because the external/material world doesn't align with the internal spiritual self. So the Cancer has two choices: Retreat and become a hermit, or go into the external and shake things up. Cardinality eventually leads it to the latter

I identify with all the things that you talk about c@ncer. Yet it is hard for me to express it. I wish I didnít have a body and I could just be. This material world is hideous. I get so hung up on how things planned out for us. Thankfully we have people like you that is able to out this into words.

Hi Osamenor,

No, there is no correlation. When looking at your list, the first thing you should have noticed is the correlation between southern hemisphere and northern hemisphere.

Why do you suppose states in the southern hemisphere have independence days in November, December, January?

Because that's their Summer.

Weather has a lot to do with it. Ever try riding a horse in the snow?

They didn't exactly have snow-plows in the 1700s or 1800s.

And for the record, USA Sun is Gemini, not Cancer.

Re: Cancer Independence Days

The alignments are stars not signs, we can go to the Southern Hemisphere to "The Inauguration of the Commonwealth of Australia" in Sydney on 1st January 1901, please scroll down link to #190 to #196, the day is marked twice by Sirius and once by Alnilam.
This includes actual time of start at noon:-

Re: Cancer Independence Days

For Paris, France named after the planet Venus (ruler of Taurus and Libra) it is one of fame, vanity, beauty, fashion and lively urban settings...a strong feminine energy is felt and Paris has a large LGBT population, this city has a Gemini and Virgo vibe ruled by Mercury.

Paris was a Trojan prince who caused the Trojan War by abducting Helen, queen of Sparta to be his wife, with the help of Aphrodite. Troy was destroyed--Paris should have known better than to mess with the Spartans! Paris also ambushed the hero Achilles and killed him with an arrow to his one vulnerable spot, his heel.

The entire episode as well as which souls were alive today when Cayce read for them proved to be quite a fascinating "tale?"...What is considered myth - i.e. Paris, the trojan horse, etc. better known then as Morton Blumenthal,or was he Achilles? (can't recall now) (Edgar was the soldier however who mistakenly let the Trojan horse in the gate, as a military young gatekeeper)...He committed suicide in that lifetime, hence needed to return with a natal chart that shows this i.e. Uranus at the ASC.


We photographed the Trojan horse and the Wall where Cayce supposedly had been the gatekeeper. There are some ruins here in Turkey, near the Mediterranean still, but this was in 2006 and I think not long thereafter, UniversalStudios or some Hollywood people finished erecting the huge Horse that stands there today! (it wasn't yet finished when we were there) Lots to see in Turkey. This was just one little archeological site visited in 19 days.

This link mentioned the Dardanelles was the waterway on the southern coast of Turkey.

That was during the tropical Age of Sagittarius, astrologically ruled by Zeus/Jupiter. Filled with visions, wide-open skies, and high-energy adventures, it's when astrology as we know it developed. Nothing like the fearful Age we're in now, under Saturn's rulership.

It was easy for people to believe that the gods interacted personally with mortals. For example, Alexander the Great was considered to be the son of a god. He believed it was Zeus, his mother claimed it was Apollo, the Egyptians identified the god as Ra, or Amon, and some said it was the demigod Achilles. Point being, different Age, different prevailing mentality. Philosophy appropriately got it's greatest thinkers during the Age of Sagittarius.

Re: Cancer Independence Days

thats because Cancer indeed is about Liberty, Nation feeling, The country people, ordinary people you know. It's also about working class, Opposition parties and perhaps libertarian and left leaning politics too where Capricorn and Leo naturally symbolizes the government concept, conservative politics and monarchies afaik in the traditional and mundane astrology. So Cancer is like Aquarius for some reason.
