What’s the Sun Sign for the Hero nowadays?

Today, it’s the 18th of July 2013. We are in the middle of the Grand Water Trine. For me, this Trine meant me minus 1 tooth and a lot of pain. This is all I am going to tell you about me as this post is dedicated to something very dear to me, a hero and to my question: What’s the Sun Sign for the Hero nowadays?

Here’s how the story develops: on the 18th of July 1918, in the village of Mvezo in Umtatu, then a part of South Africa a new baby boy is born. With both parents illiterate, there were small chances of the little boy going to school. Being a devout Christian, his mother sent him to a local school. There he got his English name: Nelson. As a young boy he played sports, enjoyed friends and developed his lifelong love for gardening.

He started studying Law at the University of Witwatersrand being the only native African student, but devoting most of his time to politics. Whilst at university he became increasingly aware of the unjust nature of South African Society. He was exposed to liberal, radical and Africanist thought, racism and discrimination. He was able to finish his degree and qualify as a Lawyer. The young man fought against apartheid and for legal rights. He became a leader in the African National Congress and wanted to follow Gandhi’s non-violence approach. He was not able to do this as the political climate had changed. In 1960, in Sharpeville a massacre of 63 black South Africans took place.By 1962 he had been arrested and sentenced to life in prison. He spent 27 years in Robben Island prison. He was arrested for what he believed and not for what he did. The life in prison was tough and sometimes unbearable, but he tried to make the best out of it. He said the secret was to keep your emotions under control and he was becoming very good at it. In prison, it is said that he managed to keep a very good relation with all the guardians. He admitted their human side and talked to them.

In 1990 he became the country’s first black president. He later played a leading role in the drive for peace. He won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1993.

This is the short story of a super hero of our times – Nelson Mandela! He was born under the blessed Cancer Sun Sign. He was tolerant, devoted, intuitive, protective, home and country oriented, with a very powerful emotional intelligence, humane and patient.July 18th is Nelson Mandela day. People are asked that for 67 minutes on this day people will help people. This is the number of years that Nelson Mandela spent serving his country.

I believe that the hero nowadays must be a Cancer Sun Sign and the reason is simple: we need love, emotions, a lot of tolerance for one another and a great free forgiving and patient spirit.

Thank you for reading!

This post is entirely dedicated to my 2 long life best friends born with the Sun in Cancer. As I write this post, the Sun is in Cancer and will stay here until the 22nd of July. This is a period of rest, of vacation, of soul searching and of family gatherings. I hope I am able to write here all the happiness of having a caring and loving Cancer near you. Cancer people are kind, soft and always ready to help. They are the ones, who should teach others how to listen and how to be of any good in this world. Cancer is the fourth sign of the zodiac. The ruling planet is the Moon and that makes it a very feminine sign. The element is water and is by far the zodiac sign that is truly connected to the sea. The water element brings intuition and generosity. They are sensitive and moody, and easily hurt. Cancer people are extremely loyal to those who appreciate and support them. These guys will love you and take care of you. They are the perfect mother and father and the perfect friend.

Where do you find them? This is the sign that feels best at home, next to the parents, near all the family members. And if this place is near the sea…I think you just found your Cancer friend or lover. They will listen to all the problems in the family, try to help and be a supportive family member. I always say – if you want a real family – try to have a Cancer Sun Sign there and there will be magic. Cancer people will try to put all the members of the family in one big home where everybody is happy just being together. One Cancer woman I loved was Princess Diana. This is what she said: “Family is the most important thing in the world for me.

Cancer people are very intuitive and very good at finding out what others feel. They are extremely receptive to the environment and the people around them, and will often ‘pick up’ people’s energies, moods and thoughts. That is why they make great marketing/ media/ research people, good psychologists, doctors, lawyers or presidents. They are here to create harmony for the entire world. A great Cancer example is His Excellency Nelson Mandela, Cancer, born July 18 who served 27 years in prison and later on received international acclaim for his anti-colonial and anti-apartheid stance, having received the Nobel Peace Prize. He said: “It is better to lead from behind and to put others in front, especially when you celebrate victory when nice things occur. You take the front line when there is danger.”

Cancer people have a thing for history; they love ancient cities, ruins and collecting all kinds of things. They are in love with memories, smells, the color of the sky that day when… they have an incredible memory mainly because they always associates things. And one of my favorite traits – they absolutely love to travel! Even if they love the home environment, you will see them very excited going on a trip with friends and family, especially if this trip is going to be by the sea.

Now, do you happen to love a Cancer woman or man? You’re in for a love story! They are always searching for their soul mate! I am not sure if this is forever, but it’s sure going to worth the time of your life!

Love a Cancer Man? Hmm… you are in for a tricky one. First I have to warn you – what I am going to tell seems almost impossible to find! He is the most amazing kisser !He is adorable, loveable, sincere, creative, loves to travel and tells amazing stories. He is a very good friend to his small group of friends and he adores his family. This is the perfect father for your children: he will love to spend time with them and play and just have fun. He will flourish by the sea and he will make love to you as you never thought possible. Be careful, you will fall in love with this man! Big time! Take care as it is probably just a passing phase for him. Watch the Moon!

Love a Cancer Woman? Well, now we are talking! She can be peaceful and passionate, stubborn, compliant, furious, and docile, all in the same hour. But you will never find someone who takes care of you and the kinds, gets along perfectly well with everybody in your family, is incredibly hot and sexy and sweet… did I mention she can be a great cook? She is adorable and you will want to protect her in any way. You will fall in love in a blink of an eye and stay this way for a very long time! If you know her long enough, you will see that she is strong willed and very persistent. She usually gets it done her way in her sweet way. She has a great fashion style and is very flexible. Always remember: the Cancer woman is a child of the Moon – that’s what makes her special.
