The Sun On Cancer 12: The Embodiment Of Great Possibilities
The Sabian Symbol for the Sun is Cancer 12 – it is a particular favourite of mine… A CHINESE WOMAN NURSING A BABY WHOSE AURA REVEALS HIM TO BE THE REINCARNATION OF A GREAT TEACHER
This Symbol shows someone who is young or inexperienced but is more possessed of greatness than might at first be apparent. Like the woman nursing this child, being able to recognize brilliance, truth and beauty in others, or in your own self, can bring many rewards. There is often the sense that someone’s an ‘old soul’, even though they’re young in their years or their experience; they are ahead of their time or have talents beyond the norm. Dane Rudhyar said this degree is: ‘The promise to all men that God may take birth within their souls.’ Good nourishment and care will nourish this great potential.
Nurturing innocence and the selfless rewards it can bring. Reincarnation. Unique and special talents recognized. Indigo children. Monks and the Dalai Lama. Knowledge.
The Caution: Being unable to see simple messages. Overcome with complexity. Demanding to be noticed. Precocious behavior. Being pushy and demanding.
This was the degree of the Sun just two days before the birth of the Dalai Lama – as he was preparing to be born. Totally apt!
