Although Cancer is commonly associated with our emotional side, Cancer is also the sign of the mother, unconditional love, fertility, & the divine feminine.
Ruled by the moon, Cancer is embodied by the divine feminine, which is the part of all of us that is associated with intuition, creativity, sensuality, & all felt senses outside of logic.
Whether you’re straight, gay, transgender, or any other sexual orientation & identity that doesn’t fit under the cisgender or heterosexual umbrella, we all possess our own divine feminine in the same way that we all possess our own divine masculine. Feminine energy is not synonymous with the cisgender female archetype, but actually defines receptive energy in contrast to masculine energy, which represents expressive energy. Femininity represents the inner aspect of ourselves & our ability to absorb external things & transmute it, which is better known as manifesting.
Cancer represents fertility associated with maternal parenting: it is the ability to birth new life as well as offer unconditional love to people, places or things we cherish. When you are feeling tapped out of resources, connecting with your divine feminine will unlock the ability to manifest new energies out of love & care for your most treasured with pure devotion. When you want to create something new, your divine feminine energy can help you unlock the intuitive side of your creativity & learn how to create from the abstract rather than logic.
Where some people view the vagina & the womb as objects of sexual desire, they can better be seen as the human’s ability to manifest something into the physical realm. Creating something out of love & then nurturing its growth until it becomes its own beautiful & tangible thing. If you tend to be repulsed by female sexual organs, take a step back and ask yourself: is this response a result of denying my divine feminine energy? In what aspects of my life could I channel my divine feminine so that I can foster growth? Am I refusing to embrace my feminine side and welcome it with unconditional love? How has society conditioned me to reject femininity & the idea of softness, vulnerability & love?
