Ode to Cancer is a 3.5×7.5 in. print
Cancer corresponds to the Chariot Tarot card, representative of how they seek out initiatory experiences, and carry their homes with them wherever they may go.
Being ruled by the Moon, they have a very fluid nature. If they are not feeling safely contained by the security and sturdiness of their home, they may feel as though they are flailing. Cancer is the sign of the sacred Mother, the protector, and embodying the soft waters beneath what may seem like a hard exterior.
The medicine of the Crab this motherly figure invokes on the shore, through her potion of jasmine, sage, and lemon balm, emits an essence of protection as she makes her way, babe on her back, through dark waters, to an oceanic cave of warmth and reflection. Cancer is the iron cauldron that contains the soft flower medicine. She is the goddess of divine intuition.
This visual talisman is intended to invoke the spirit of Cancer, promoting deep motherly love of Self and other, protection of what one holds dear, deeper connection to one’s emotional body, and the inspiration to move onward without fear of the unknown.
