Crab People Stand By: Redressing The Balance

Filed in CANCER

Guys guess what???

Not A Leo was correct!  This is alarming.

But as you may know, there is a drop-down categories menu on the right hand side of the site. It is the one i always wish people would use (along with the search function) before they email to ask if i could write something on – say – Pluto. Anyway, there is a category for each Sun Sign so each post about each sign ends up in there. So i just did a count and Leo IS the most posted about sign.

There are 152 posts categorized Leo (they could also be about other signs but still) and then the next three most popular are Aries, Scorpio and Virgo.  And guess who came in bottom?  Crab Peeps!  Yes, our darling Cancerians…So obviously this is a situation that has to be corrected quick-smart.

Stand by for a series of posts on Crab Peeps.

For the next eight days Cancerians can get a 50% discount off anything in the Shop or any of the Subscriptions by entering “canceriansareepic” where it says ‘apply coupon’.   If you have a Cancerian friend, alert them to the fact that they are about to see more fabulous & radical information about them and their kind then has ever before been gathered in one place. You can also shout afore mentioned Crab friend a subscription or something else and get that same discount BUT you will need to email me.

Thoughts?  Crab Peeps, how do we love thee?

Kataka daughter, Natalie (as mentioned elsewhere), 26, called me the day after my birthday at 8:41 am and left message saying she guesses she must be a bad daughter for not having called me on said day altho I’d just seen family day before bday… As it was, was stuck in LA traffic on Easter Sunday..on the freeway…for three hours! Eh, got lost a bit..Yipes tho, talk about excercising Aries and Cap Moon patience…was almost in tears at one point. When got to Gem daughter’s house Kataka said “Mom, would you like a drink?” Said yes, howa bout a double… Read more »

Meant to say “glad to see Kataka getting attention from all” in terms of trans Pluto being opposite after all..

frieda. ’nuff said.

i’ve never met a crab whom i didn’t love instantly. male, female… they are the swooniest and most delicious of signs by a long mile. and you’re so right, all of you- it’s the dreamy eyes and gentle airs that draw you in, but the rock-solid core of strength and authenticity that keep you locked in their claws forever. looooove.

Had Leo tarot lady tell me years ago that Kataka men the best…I was married to one for 16 years…Know a bit or two..

Was just too independent for him and had karma with others elsewhere..

Besides Kataka daughter as well, Gem daughter Mercury and Venus in Katak..

All in my 1st house btw..

Kataka daughter asked on my bday “so Mom, how are you?”…Nice…

And her Gemini/Libran Moon husband still gives me flowers…Sweet

awwwww 🙂 yeah, 13 years with one crab, a year and some if you can call it that with this one, crabby dad, gem daughter has merc, moon, mars and saturn… i think we know a thing or two, for sure, sweetpea. 🙂 you have 5th house libra nn and toro venus too, right? they seem to get that hidden toro thing better than anyone, and need for partnership, and security… *wanders off mumbling about being alone to herself in crazy bad lady style*

True!

Cancer very much about appreciation for the feminine/womanhood and that goes so much further than baking and frumpy lace.

Don’t get me wrong I love to cook and bake but not for every and anyone and I like lace (silk, cashmere, and other soft/delicate fabrics) but it’s more along the lines of lingerie than granny’s Sunday best.

There’s a lot more to Cancer than meets the eye. We have a quiet kind of strength … When we’re not going on about ourselves 🙂

*Yawn* I’m over it. Didn’t think about it all day. What makes me chuckle is how rude people are in these blog comments including Mystic with the whole, bugger off toro’s I’m focussing on crabs thing.

Some people may interpret the crab trait of nuturing/caring as a sign of weakness. But my crab friends are total tough nuts. Emotional strength is real strength.

The ones I know are also – really great at saving money, fun + creative/magic. Yay for crabs!

Mmwah Crablings! You know I love you (how could I not with Mercury, Venus & Saturn there?). I love your moodiness, your intrinsic emotional intelligence and when you are mercurially inclined… can’t help but love your piercing emo wit. And this from a Leo whose balloon is easily popped.

And like FA said, MM, love your cool lack of ego, telling it like it is never looked so stylish.

It’s true.

You rarely do posts on the water signs. Seemingly endless posts on the fire signs but whatevs didn’t want to bitch. I figured Cancer would get their turn when Jupiter was in our sign, or at least I hoped so.

So glad you took notice.

I’ve always felt like an under-estimated lot (Cancer Sun) – and it’s always presumed that Kakata is simpering. Perhaps my Aries Rising has more influence than I realise. But yes, yes, yes to baking – always something sweet! My sister is Kakata, as are 2 of my closest friends. Only dated a Kakata man once and it was just tooooo intense! I can be sooky but look out if someone crosses me or any of the special people in my life – and don’t start me on caring for my Scorpio son! Easy for me to forgive, but I never… Read more »

The best crabs are humble and use their powers of emotional insight for good rather than evil. They know how to self care and thus teach others how to do it by example. They are both loyal and able to give others emotional space when required. The worst crabs are whiney and use their powers of emotional insight for evil rather than good – manipulating others and carrying on like neurotic basket cases. They are clingy, harbouring deep abondonment fears that have the effect of driving people away Being emotional and cyclical, intuitive more than rational … it’s not easy… Read more »

However, to the question, How Does One Love A Crab Peep? 1) Pay attention to subtle cues, we’re sideways folk apt to leave little hints here and there. We don’t go around casually telling people what we like because in our mind, that’s an imposition rather than a request as such. Plus the sweetness of the gift is the independent and completely voluntary attention you put into it. Sister Libra knows this and understands the delicacy required. 2) We’re Private & Private Eyes. Accosting your favorite Crab with artillery style questioning is a no-go, we shell up pronto when that… Read more »

Yes! I relate to all of this in myself, and I’m just Crab ascendant, not even sun. (Aqua sun, btw, which is like a non-sequitor in this context).
My ascendant is well aspected by my Pisces moon, Pisces Mars, etc. and my Sun has very few aspects, so I think my Crab attributes come through more than my sun.

Thanks for spelling all of this out! Absolutely genius description!

Yes well … we crabilicious types don’t require constant affirmation to validate ourselves. We already secretly know we’re awesome and prefer to hang out backstage where the real action is … deep revolutionary convo over food, encouraging our friends and loved ones to achieve maximum awesome themselves. When we decide to step out of the shadows and turn our awesome powers up to high voltage peeps are just gobsmacked/amazed/stunned/converted …. but we only like to do that occasionally to remind peeps that no we are not simpering history obsessed antiquarians whose sole aim in life is to have a bun… Read more »

oh, you know, me too – a tall, dark, scruffy cancerian guy I once knew. it was a music thing. creative types…they get me every time. bam: love (or Massive Crush, anyway..he was taken at the time from memory) . I mean, creativity itself is sexy. the fact that an attractive man is also creative AND (very important) not a tosser is double, nay, triple sexy. mind you Scorpio rules my 5th house, so..yeah.

something else to ponder is other ways in which abundance and wealth manifest in your life, other than straight-up money. I feel like I am allowed to say this as I live on student benefits right now and spending $50 in one hit means half of my weekly income is gone. I also have the sting of comparing this to my once-comfortably-salaried lifestyle. If I can manage to get in the right frame of mind, I do a ‘counting-blessings’ kind of thought process / meditation where I think of all the ways in which I DO have abundance – friends,… Read more »

My Mom is a Cancer. I don’t get how they are both emo and in a shell. How do they do both at once? My Mom’s emotional reactions never made sense to me. Then again, she’s had some serious Mars challenges to overcome. Now, in her 70s, she’s single, working, and likes to travel and do adventure sports. I’ve got no idea if that’s typical for the sign. She’s a fantastic baker. Are home cooked deserts Cancerian?

Yes, I was just wondering about the statistical significance of those numbers… is there any? Because if there isn’t, there isn’t. Significance, I mean.

Oh, Mystic, you’ve historically confessed your sooky goo goo preferences for Leo men, so I don’t know why anyone would wonder or question a greater occurence of Leo posts. Is it significant, though? I really really doubt it.

Hmm.. by my unscientific count, Taurus shows fewer hits than Cancer. Oh well, Taurus is mostly the strong and silent type.

However, I really REALLY often find the Crab posts boring. Velvet fashion, carb loaded food, vintagey old shit. “Canny crab”…. YAWN. We’re not all freaking fat old nannas making doshy out of eclectic art.

We all play favourites, it’s to be expected. We all have pet peeves and minor obsessions LOL

But I have to say thatI’m not surprised that Kataka came out the least mentioned. In my {limited} experience, Cancer seems almost the opposite of Leos. Leos fast outward projecting, Cancers slow inward processing. This is a terrible generalisation of course. Nothing wrong with deep internal processing. Just so different to be almost opposites.

I love me some Crab!! The best. Me, a Virgo with a darling Crab husband. Ha, gotta love the irony of (egotistic) Leos getting all the attention, at least in quantity of posts about them! (not necessarily all non stop praise and glory as MM is all fairness). Had my fair share of karmic lessons & immense maddening Leonic behaviours. But as Fi said in earlier posts re NOt a Leo: they may take decades, but age brings humility one hopes!…
