whenever i meet someone i resonate strongly with, they usually end up being a cancer. yes, the crab has mood swings, and are ridiculously sensitive, and can be… ahem, frugal. but, they also happen to ROCK. why? because this crustacean is just so… caring. and usually 100% genuine too. they are the sign of FEELING. if every human could experience the feelings of other beings on this planet… gosh our world would be a very different place. cancer though, is well on their way to doing just that. they are so intuitive. they pretty much all ready know what others are feeling… all the time. they may be in denial about it, but they are feeling it none the less.
maybe it’s the watery nature of their sign that mixes so well with the H2O in alcohol… but it’s a rare thing to catch a crab who doesn’t enjoy drinking. reallllly enjoy.
jasmine is ruled by the moon because it is a night flowering blossom. also, it climbs. like a cute little crab crawling its way into your heart. those two qualities make for a lunar plant, according to the principles of medieval herbal astrology. but hey here’s the good news: we can all enjoy this lovely warm tipple on a cold winter night. it’s not just for those crabby ones. and seeing as cancer is the sign of home, this would be a particularly nice toddy to sip in front of the fire. we all have one of those right? ha! the good old days… actually, i kind of LOVE my geo-thermal heating system. i’ll take that over chopping wood any day.
