In progress of an interpretation of the horoscope Cancer

 

This is an oil painting in progress in my horoscope series. This is the beginning of the Cancer. The cancer is based on the crab. Crabs live in the inter-tidal zone of the oceans, where tides rise and fall twice every day. This is the most dynamic and changeful place on earth, but also the most nutrient rich. Because of the constant change, the Cancer have developed a hard outer shell for protection. Astrologically, the water element symbolizes emotion. Hence the Cancer is known to be sensitive and emotional on the inside, but protective about sharing that emotion with others.
