Zodiac Line: Cancer Necklace


Cancer

June 21 - July 22


Cancer is the 4th sign of the Zodiac, ruled by the Moon, the Great Mother of the heavenly bodies, water is their element. The Moon is also the ruler of moods, and Cancers can be overly sensitive, easily hurt and prone to brooding.  At the same time, they're very nurturing, empathetic and are quick to show their affection. 


When we were looking for a Cancer model, my friend Jill McKeever immediately came to mind. Not only is she beautiful, she's also the most Cancerian person I know.  She is the "mother" of my friend group, always looking for ways to help us when we need anything.  She runs her own online business, For Strange Women, and creates natural perfume and other products using Mother Earth's finest ingredients.   I was thrilled when she agreed to be our model and I designed the necklace with her as my muse. Just like Jill, the crab is tiny, mysterious and delicate however, in reality, it's made of steel, stronger than meets the eye.  The Zodiac Stone for Cancer is emerald, the stone of true love and loyalty, amongst other things.  This necklace has 3 faceted emerald beads, two hung asymmetrically on the sides of the pendant and one on the 2 inch extender chain.  The chain is black and brass shimmer chain and the extender chain and findings are antique brass in finish.  The Cancer Zodiac Necklace is available for sale on our website, scarlettgarnet.com.




The tough, sand blasted stainless steel pendant is reminiscent of the Cancer's rough outer shell, it's home, where it hides safely from all harm. Home is one of the most important things in a Cancer's world, they are domestic, maternal, dependable and caring by nature. Their home must be perfect to suit their needs and reflect their personalities as they spend most of their time in the comforts of their home and family. A Cancer's shell is a metaphorical second home, they are quick to retreat based upon their moods. Cancers are known to be crabby and it's best to let them be and not disturb them in these moments of hermit retreat. After all, they will always resurface, refreshed and ready to socialize and play again.


Cancers love to nurture others, they're loyal, dependable and caring.  If you form a friendship with a Cancer, it's prone to last for life.  Cancers take a long time to trust others and would rather maintain the relationships they've already formed rather than let anyone new in.  Cancers wear their hearts on their sleeves and look for quality people to surround themselves with, preferring to have fewer friendships rather than spread themselves thin with acquaintances.


Due to their watery nature, Cancers have keenly intuitive minds.  They can read people very well, often reading between the lines of what others say and how they say it along with studying their mannerisms.  Cancer is known to 'test' others before committing to friendship, as they are deeply sensitive and easily hurt, they choose to protect themselves by keeping their distance at first.  With their powers of observation, intelligence and intuition, Cancers have tremendous success in anything they set out to do.


Cancers need to be needed by the special people they allow in to their lives. They also need constant support and encouragement. When cancer gets the support it needs, it has a tremendous amount to offer in return. Cancer is also very possessive, not just with material items but also with people. They offer unconditional love and loyal, lasting friendship.




Cancers are amongst the most mysterious of the Zodiac signs.  You are a lucky person to have one on your side as you will have a friend for life, one who will protect you and comfort you as long as you are a good, trusting friend in return.  They make the most romantic lovers and are sure to give everything they can in relationships.  As a Gemini, I have found that it's best to listen to Cancers as they will bestow you with wisdom as long as you a receptive.  I am a lucky person to call Jill my friend and I look forward to a lasting friendship no water what dirrection life pulls us in.
