Our move, though, brought into my consciousness the question of why we fear change. I have talked before in these blogs about change for myself and how I personally fought it. Some star signs find it easier than others. I have lost count of the number of times those who have come to see me for a reading with a Cancer Mid-heaven have moved house, or have had many moves in this incarnation. It seems the more they want stability – like I did – the more the Universe either takes it away or will not allow it to manifest.
My first husband had Cancer rising in his birth chart and found it extremely hard to move house despite him telling me he wanted to. It actually was the cause of our marriage finally breaking apart. Of course, as an astrologer I do know how important having a home is to a Cancer person. They literally carry their home on their backs just like the crab – which is their birth sign creature (astrologically speaking). With Cancer also being in my Mid-heaven, it is literally where my ego consciousness is. To me, not only having a home is important, but also what that house looks like. I may have shopped in opportunity shops but nobody can say my houses looked bad! Everyone would comment on my homes over the years: the energy, the decor, the furnishings etc. It was always a positive comment each time. Of course, I had created this beautiful place and the Universe insisted on moving me on. The longest I stayed in a home at one time was four and a half years! The shortest time was 3 weeks, just after my first marriage. What the Universe was trying to show me was that I was not to settle down in blissful real estate, that my life was not going to be settled in any way. I needed to travel, and travel I would. And if I dared to settle down in a home, I could forget it!
