The sign of Cancer doesn’t coincide with the Cancer constellation. Within the zodiac, it takes the fourth 30 degrees of the circle and begins with the primary day of summer. Cancer may be a cardinal sign, which implies it marks the beginning of a season in the same way as Aries marks the start of spring. Within the times of yore, the constellation of Cancer was positioned at an identical place because of the most northerly location of the Sun, representing the solstice.

Its name is Latin for crab, but we will hardly recognize the looks of a constellation with an unadorned eye. It’s more like an upside-down letter “Y.” It’s the dimmest of all zodiacal constellations, located between Gemini and Leo. It had been often considered the “Dark Sign,” described as black and without eyes thanks to its dim appearance. Cancer (the crayfish or crab) is alleged to have been an area for the Mesopotamian Sun of the South and was afterward related to the fourth month Duzu that falls in June-July of the fashionable western calendar. It was also referred to as the Northern Gate of the Sun.


The myth of Cancer is maybe the shortest myth of all. It speaks of a couple of family messes as a consequence of 1 of Zeus’ infidelities that resulted in the birth of Heracles, one of the best Greek heroes. Hera, the wife of Zeus, hated Heracles out of envy and wanted him off. While he was fighting the good Hydra, out of fondness for Hera, a crab creeped in and pinched Heracles’ foot. As a result, he smashed the crab with one step, which is generally the tip of it.

There is mention of otherwise to interpret Cancer, through the role of the large crab that Poseidon, the god of the ocean, but guilty to stay his nymphs safe. He was mostly successful in his endeavors but got tricked by the “vampire squid” that he sent to avoid wasting a pair of nymphs who got away. As a consequence of the fight with the squid, he was crippled and, owing to his immortality, in pain forever.


A myth of Cancer shows someone who isn’t conscious of their true strength. Those that are about the sign or the constellation of Cancer need to handle a family mess and sometimes have a prejudice against those hated by their mother, their ruler, or their wife. They will even be true patriots, loyal to their “queen,” still as overly protective. They’re easily convinced to travel into battle, whether or not they’re only to pose as a casualty. This myth points to those that are overly sensitive but able to charge on a far bigger enemy because their emotions prevail over logic. If they tackle quietly, they’ll handle it; they might find themselves getting hurt and even be crippled at all times.
