Cancer Decan III


Wednesday, July 12, 2017, marks the movement of the Sun into the third Decan (10 day segment) of the Astrological Sign of Cancer. The image for this time period, taken from Austin Coppock’s “36 Faces”, is ‘The Overflowing Cup’ and the Tarot Card associated with it is the 4 of Cups/Water.

In my upcoming Tarot deck, the “9 Key Tarot”, the 4 of Water is an image of an Ibis and it’s reflection, in the murky twilight sky. This waterbird pauses before his last catch of the day, to observe the natural cycle of sun moving into evening. Traditionally, the symbol of an overflowing cup is ‘Luxury’ – as the saying, “My cup overfloweth.”

It’s a good time to stop and make declarations of your gratitude for your sense of abundance, especially around those things which fill the well of your soul. But it also can be a time of overwhelm, where so many things are calling out for your attention that you just want it to stop!

The 4 of Water/Cups is where we come to an impasse on our uphill climb to the peak, toward the 10 of each suit. Pausing to reflect on the dog days of Summer is what this week is about.

What are the goals you have set forth for this Summer season? Have you been to a reunion or spent time enjoying the water and the warmth of the sun with your family? Have you decided to take better care of your health and imbibe in organic greens and cold watermelon?

I’m in the midst of clearing out dross from my office…this includes purging myself of papers stored from long, long ago, sorting and reorganizing what is still useful and can be of immediate use. It’s the way my organizing specialist, Lisa Sulgit, of “isimplify”, has had me look at my possessions; “Either love it, use it, or pass it along so someone else can use it.”

Those things that have outworn their value, or are no longer necessary for me to refer to while writing or creating art will be donated, recycled or trashed. Doing this kind of physical purging really helps me clear my head and I find new ideas springing up already! I plan to have ‘stations’ in different parts of the room so that I can attend to the myriad of interests I have with more FOCUS on each one.

This kind of purging really helps! Try it, now that the Decan of Cancer 3 energy moves you to PAUSE & REFLECT. Namaste’
