Sometimes you gotta dig down deep within yourself and pull out that Self that knows that you can and will get it done. Sometimes you are encouragement to others around you to remind yourself that you are not here alone; that we all go thru it; and that sometimes, we are stronger than we ever thought we could be.
Tenacious is the key word to describe the Cancer Sun native. I could be biased, but if you read my other posts, I think you will see that I give light to all the other signs equally. Cancer being my Sun sign, I know this energy very well, so I can speak best on that which I know best.
I have a lot of things that I would like to do in this lifetime. I would like to teach learners of all ages and abilities/disabilities; write language arts/reading curricula and activities; perform conscious-and-dope hip hop and gogo and genreless music throughout the world; birth babies, etc… (trust me, the list goes on, and on, and on….). I wanted “save the world” and “start the revolution” as they say. At first, I thought that I was trying to do too much- I recall the poem Revolutionary Dreams" by "Revolutionary Dreams" by Nikki Giovanni I used to recite to myself that ended saying “if I dreamed natural dreams of being a natural woman doing what a woman does when she’s natural I would have a revolution”. So I fell back and limited myself to one dream. To teach. To start a school for Moorish children. I threw myself into that work until I began to hate it. And I got distressed because I felt my natural self was not good enough for the revolution. What was I to do?
The Cancer in me said “keep working and striving; keep pushing- your closer to that mountain top than you expected”. No, that’s not an MLK reference; that is from a personal experience of me climbing Mt. Gemi, second tallest mountain in Ghana. Right before I reach the peak and took in the beauty of the Volta region, I told myself that I wasn’t going to make it and that I’d be turning around. Honors to the encouraging words around me- their cheers were like angels lifting me the rest of the way.
The Scorpio in me won’t let me fail. We are too stubborn for that. We will create the situation and scenarios that we want- we won’t take no for an answer, we’ll just find another way.
That was a vocabulary word in the textbook during yesterday's lecture. I wanted to tell them to look at me and my life, and they would understand the word’s meaning.
Why do I mention any of this?
Because knowing your chart helps you to know why you have certain dreams. I am tenacious, shrewd, and steadfast. No wonder the universe blissed me to have many dreams doing many important things- it’s because the Angels know I will get it done.
