21st June - 23rd July
When the sun enters the sign of Cancer the year has reached its peak - summer solstice, the longest day of the year. It is a time to celebrate the nurturing aspects of Mother Nature, her fertility and abundance from which all life springs. Cancer is the sign of the nurturer, who thrives on the tender loving care she lavishes on those she loves. Love goes through the stomach and Cancerian love frequently takes on the shape of food. It is the sign of the crab, a creature that lives both, in the ocean and on land. Likewise, Cancer draws his inspiration from an oceanic source. Occasionally the subconscious mind washes treasures from the depth onto the shores of conscious awareness. Cancer is guided by intuition - the mind of the gut -and may even have psychic abilities. Like the crab, Cancer is very sensitive, but has learnt to hide the true depth of his feelings behind the thick amour of his shell. He often put up a cheery front that belies what goes on inside. Past hurts are bottled and stored for later use and reuse ad infinitum. Cancer does not forget - neither the good nor the bad. Cancer's weakness is his tendency to live in the past and hang on to old feelings long past their 'due' date. They can be emotionally manipulative and sometimes harbour a secret ambition to live their own dreams through their off spring or whoever else may be the recipient of their mothering. Too much of a good thing can be just too much and sometimes all their loving may be experienced as smothering - especially when there are strings attached. Cancer benefits from Jupiter who brightens their moody nature and gives charismatic vision to their caring activities.

Energies can be very clingy and instead of flowing freely, clog up the spiritual pathways. Spiritual cleansing and purification rituals are needed to unblock and get rid of unwanted energies, whether it’s a bad vibe polluting the atmosphere or stagnant emotions that we can’t let go of and thus prevent us from moving on. Space Aromas can be added to the cleansing water used in such purification rituals.
Anointing oils are used to prepare the practitioner and tools for ritual work. The scented oil acts as a layer of protection, purifies the heart and focuses the mind on the task in hand. To create a scented anointing oil dilute about 5 drops of Space Aroma in a tablespoon of base oil.
Space Aromas are highly concentrated Essential Oil blends that should always be treated with due respect. Star Child creations are based on tradition and magic with intent.
