King of Hearts – Cancer
The sun goes for a swim in Cancer from June 22nd August 23rd. Cancer’s main characteristic is, ”I feel,” while it’s best quality is Tenacity and it’s worst quality is touchiness. As the sun is in the crab constellation it acts a bit like a crab itself. As the sun approaches the solstice it appears to slow down and then afterwards as the days start becoming shorter the sun starts moving backwards, back down the sky.
This constellation is so dim, it is at time refered to as the “dark sign.” Interestingly this animal assigned to this by various cultures (tortoise, crab, and beetle) are all insignificant hard shelled creatures that have a slow distinct manners of walking.
