Mercury On Cancer 24: The Relationship Triangle Degree
The Sabian Symbol for Mercury is Cancer 24: A WOMAN AND TWO MEN (OR A MAN AND TWO WOMEN) CAST AWAY ON A SMALL ISLAND
Is there an imbalance in relationships where you might be the third wheel? Where your needs and wishes aren’t really considered? Too many people to have to think about? Are people playing off one against the other? Perhaps it’s time for you to put yourself at the top of your priorities?
This Symbol implies that people seem to be locked into some situation, environment or relationship that defies the ordinary definitions of relationships. There could be too many people, as in relationship triangles, or there could just be too many people to take into consideration as sometimes happens when a child intrudes too much into a relationship between adults. You may find that it is difficult to choose what you want as others may have something different to say. Your wants seem to vacillate from one extreme to the other. Perhaps there is a need to get away from those trying to confuse you with conflicting views, although this may sometimes be impossible.
Feelings of being fenced in, too little room to move. Lack of privacy. Affairs. Isolation. Rivalry. Polygamy. Claustrophobia. The struggle to be noticed. Love affairs.
The Caution: Not seeing the whole picture. Fighting over ‘territory’. Having too many people to consider. The specter of ‘someone else’. Jealousy. Infidelity. Unacceptable relationships.
