No one will ever win the battle of the sexes; there’s too much fraternizing with the enemy. —Henry Kissinger
SUN IN CANCER – MOON IN LEO
Symbolon Card is Incompatibility – Keyword is Clarity in communication
You may feel like you are unable to cope with your masculine side if you are a woman (animus) or feminine side if you are a man (anima). You are unusually uncomfortable with the opposite gender for now. You wonder why communication has become so difficult. The Sun is in Cancer (ruled by the Moon) and the Moon is in Leo (ruled by the Sun). Both the Sun (masculine) and the Moon (feminine) are ruled by the other. This explains your own inner gender incompatibility. There is no more complex communication than between men and women. The same words don’t have the same meaning for both. Here is a quote from Marylin Monroe to illustrate the point “I told you I’ll be ready in 5 minutes, 30 minutes ago. Please stop asking me every 1/2 hour.” The answer to your dilemma is to put yourself in the opposite gender’s shoes and try to gain awareness of what you say and what the other perceives and vice-versa. Sometimes you cannot live with the other and not without. Better be “can” instead of “cannot”. Clarity in communication is very difficult to attain, but worth the effort for the sake of peace and harmony.
