  • Mode: Cardinal
  • Archetypes: Mother, healer, and caregiver
  • Ruling Planet: The Moon, governing emotions, reactions, motherhood, security, and memories



The origin of the Cancer sign can be traced back to an ancient Greek myth involving the goddess Hera and her beloved pet crab. In the story, Hera, the goddess of marriage and family, became jealous when her husband Zeus started playing games with other goddesses. To please her and win her affection, Zeus created a beautiful crab and gifted it to her. This crab had a shimmering and colorful shell with powerful defensive abilities. Hera cherished the crab so much that she placed it in the sky, and it became the Cancer constellation.

The symbolism of the Cancer sign is closely tied to Hera and the concepts of family and home. Cancer is considered a symbol of family and homeland, carrying protective and nurturing traits. Thus, the origin of Cancer in Greek mythology, involving Hera and the crab, embodies these characteristics and represents their significance in the astrological meaning of Cancer.

As a Venus Taurus and a Moon Libra, both are zodiac signs with a love of beauty and a strong sense of aesthetics, so I studied design and found that my favourite subject was the universe and the stars, and I have an incredible sensitivity and love for divination and astrological patterns. With 78 decks of tarot cards and 12 horoscopes to learn about, I am now hoping to tell the stories of divination and astrology in the easiest way for the public.
