The evolved CANCER nature is
thoughtful and considerate when it comes to matters of speech or action.
Sensitivity is inherent, as is some degree of psychic awareness.
Compassion and empathy may extend to CLAIRSENTIENCE in the more highly evolved,
the ability to feel what others are feeling; to know what is going
on inside the other person so a proper response is present in dealing
The CRAB of CANCER wears its
skeleton on the outside, protecting the vulnerable softness within. The
crab never approaches its prey directly, but rather sideways or backwards,
avoiding direct confrontation, a common political ploy. For this reason,
DIPLOMACY and STATESMANSHIP are assigned to Key 7, THE CHARIOT, as is
RIGHT SPEECH, something much needed in the political arena. If you have
an important meeting scheduled in business or with a family member, lover
or friend, MEDITATION on THE CHARIOT might be a good idea beforehand. It may help
you find the rights words at the right time, thoughtful words that

The CANCER individual (or rising
sign) is a highly PROTECTIVE and NURTURING. This sign rules the home
where we seek protection from threatening patterns in the outside world. The four
walls protect us from the elements and keep us from harm's way. Yet, it
is the PROTECTION of the HIGHER SELF that guides each of us all the days

acknowledgement of the ONE who is truly in charge, the great PROTECTOR
of all humanity.
JUPITER is exalted in the sign of
CANCER, the planetary ruler associated with the HIGHER SELF and higher
learning. JUPITER is the Great Protector as the largest planet in our
Solar System, drawing comets and asteroids toward it and protecting the
Earth from these impacts as was true in the case of the Shoemaker-Levy Comet that
hit JUPITER in 1994.
My spiritual teacher, Ann Davies,
used to keep a copy of KEY 7, THE CHARIOT, in her car to remind her to
drive right and to protect her from herself as well as other motorists on
the road. Not a bad idea!
