Cancer Specialty: Quick Tears

The Quotable Cancer includes "Easy Tears" among the Cancer zodiac sign's specialties.  "Cancer's feelings run deep yet surprisingly close to the surface. Of all the astrological signs, sensitie Cancer cries the most easily."  People magazine's section on country music includes a partial list of simple things that bring tears from Cancer singer Luke Bryan (born 7/17/1976).

Libra-Gemini Pairs

Mary Valby's Astrological Creed

Real vs. Imaginary. Astrology works. After cataloguing thousands of celebrities and reading hundreds of charts, Mary fully accepts that astrological placements and movements impact each individual. The celestial sphere proves one of Nature's many guiding cycles.

Sun Sign vs. Full Birth-Chart. The most comprehensive celestial snapshot of your potential comes from a full astrological birth-chart based on time of birth and referencing all solar system planets. Your Sun sign describes your core energy, the driving life-force that underlies the rest of your personality.

Self-Knowledge vs. Prediction. The better use of astrology is as a tool for self-knowledge. You are not the same as other people; how can you build upon your personal talents while minimizing your weaknesses? Astrology's prediction of favorable and unfavorable periods is most accurate when calculated from a full astrological birth-chart.

Free Will vs. Determinism. Astrology suggests rather than dictates. As if playing a hand of cards, you remain free to choose your responses and actions.

"Sir, I have studied it. You have not."
Capricorn scientist Isaac Newton, born 1/4/1643, to a colleague who scoffed at Newton's belief in astrology.
