In the Zodiac, the Moon is associated with signs that are elements. When the Moon is in Aries it is air (fire) according to the element of Aries. When it is in Taurus it is earth (water) according to the element of Taurus. And so on. The following table shows how each zodiacal sign relates to each of the elements:
Signs and Elements: Aries - Fire, Gemini - Air, Bacchus - Earth, Venus - Fire, Mercury - Air, Jupiter - Fire, Saturn - Earth
In terms of cancer's relationship to these elements, it is a water sign which means it can be interpreted as both earth and fire. This would make sense because many people who develop cancer are diagnosed with something already existent such as a tumor or malignancy. Such things are usually the result of excessive heat or energy which could be considered fiery.
However, there are other factors that need to be taken into account before one can say with certainty what role, if any, cancer plays in predicting future events.
Summer (hot and dry): Aries, Leo, Sagittarius. Autumn (dry and cold)-Earth-Taurus, Virgo, Libra, and others Seasonal complexities.
|Qualities||Cold & Wet|
|Season: North||Hot & Dry (Summer/Fire)|
|Season: South||Cold & Wet (Winter/Water)|
The following are the seasonal components of ancient astrology:
Fire: 1 Aries, 5 Leo, and 9 Sagittarius; fiery, dry, and ardent. Earth—-2 Taurus, 6 Virgo, and 10 Capricorn—heavy, chilly, and dry. Air—3-Gemini, 7-Libra, and 11-Aquarius-light, heated, and damp. Water is symbolized by the numbers 4, 8, and 12 (Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces), and it is cool, wet, and soft.
Each person's chart will have one of these elements in each sign that it occupies. The element expresses itself through physical qualities such as heat or cold, hardness or softness, and so on. Your body type is based on which element dominates for you. For example, if you are fire-earth, then you have a strong will and you like to stand up for yourself but you also need to be close to others because you cannot live alone. You are hardworking and passionate about many things at once, and you prefer action to talking about action. Finally, you are cheerful and optimistic most of the time.
People tend to think of themselves in terms of their element, too. If you know your sign and its element, you can understand more about who you are as a person.
For example, if you're Aries, you are spirited and courageous. You like to take risks and go after what you want. You're aggressive and don't like to be controlled by anyone, including government officials. You love freedom and would never want to be enslaved, even for a little while.
