The Western astrological sign Cancer of the tropical zodiac (June 21 – July 22) differs from the astronomical constellation of Cancer and the Hindu astrological sign of the sidereal zodiac (July 21 – August 9).
In the tropical zodiac it represents the balmy expansiveness of mid summer. In the sidereal zodiac it is associated with the myth of the Lernaean Hydra, one of The Twelve Labours of Herakles.
In some cosmologies, Cancer is associated with the classical element Water, and thus called a Water Sign, forming Watery Trigon with Scorpio and Pisces. It is also one of the four cardinal signs (along with Aries, Libra, and Capricorn).
It is the domicile of the Moon or “House of the Moon”, and this concept might originate from an ancient belief that Moon was located here at the creation of the world. Cancer is also the exaltation of Jupiter, and the traditional astrology claims it is the licity of Mars, one of the three lesser dignities which the modern astrology does not recognize.Â cancer astrology tattoo done in morbid tattoo parlor in cash and carry mall Makati Manila, Philippines.
