When I think of the sign Cancer, it’s the crab that moves around in a sidewinding way and its so into its home and security that it lives in a big hard shell. I know I’ve seen crabs bury themselves with little effort into sand. Crabs are more at home in water than outside of it and they will bite if you get too close.

The red arrow shows where Cancer is in my natal chart. If you’d like to find your own, try astro.com. I looked a bit into my chart around 10 years ago searching for answers why circumstances are persistently difficult for me despite all of my ceaseless efforts to push through. This placement of Saturn in Cancer with all of these highly tense connections to other planets screamed out at me that this may have something to do with it.

I have a cardinal grand cross with Saturn in Cancer all alone down there. This might reflect my immense efforts and total frustration regarding results.
I have a finger of God AKA, a yod pointing at my Saturn in Cancer. This demonstrates a blockage and Saturn somehow is supposed to show the way out. To compound a WTF astrological situation, the yod also contains Venus, my chart ruler, near my midheaven making a tense oppositional aspect to that afflicted Saturn in Cancer. Not only that but this big Pluto Saturn conjunction that has been happening and will align 1/12/2020 is opposite my Saturn in Cancer. On top of all that, this Saturn Pluto alignment also squares my natal Pluto placed in the house of daily work (6th). That means death and rebirth transformation, big time. All of these placements are saying big change. If astrology is real, this has been impacting me and it will impact me further.
The arrows show where Saturn and Pluto are aligning around my natal midheaven and Venus in Capricorn opposing my natal Saturn in Cancer. My moment of destiny could be at hand based on what this information is telling me. We’ll see.
