The Moon rising in Cancer

I chosen to write about Selene due to the fact that the Moon is the Ruling planet of Cancer and today is the Full Moon.

Selene is the Titaness of the Moon, daughter of the Titan Hyperion and the Titaness Theia. She is the sister of Eos (Goddess of Dawn), Helios (Titan of the Sun) and Titan. She is represent the Mother aspect of the Moon. Selene drove a silver chariot and two white pegasi.
Selene is the Patron Goddess of the Feminine. She is have the power to ease childbirth and inspire love. Selene also is believed to have the power to mask reality and, conversely, to pierce illusion.
The mother aspect of the triple Goddess represents womanhood, she is represented by the full moon, were she is at the height of her reproductive potential. The Earth as Gaia, the mother, in whom life can be reborn, where seeds germinate and produce new crops, so the Mother Goddess was also able to bring forth new life. Selene, is the fruitful mother, the Star Goddess, the Sky Goddess, the keeper of the silver wheel of stars, is honored at the Full Moon and the days of the full and new moon were set aside for her worship. She is also a teacher of the magicians. As Luna, she had temples at Rome on the Aventine and Palatine hills.
She is beautiful and famous for her love affairs. She has been with Pan, the Greek Horned God, when he seduced her with a beautiful fleece, a herd of white oxen, or just with his dashing good look. Pan accomplished the seduction of Selene by disguising his hairy black goatishness with white fleece. Selene consented to ride on his back, unaware of who he was, and Pan proceeded to ravish her.
Some sources report that the Nemean lion, which fell to the earth from the moon, was the result of an affair of Zeus and Selene, and that she had given birth to the monster on Mount Tretus. Others say that the Moon Goddess created the lion out of sea foam enclosed in a large ark at the request of Hera, and that Iris enclosed it in her magic girdle and bore it with a fearful shudder, dropping it on earth. You see, as punishment for a promised sacrifice that was not fulfilled, Selene set it to prey upon the people who dared dishonor her, the story goes. They were called Bambinaeans, and they were terrorized by the beast until Heracles (Hercules) came along and subdued it. Also with Zeus she had Pandia, an exceedingly beautiful woman, and two other daughters.
Selene’s most famous love affair is with Endymion. Endymion was a handsome shepherd or hunter who became the first astronomer to observe the movements of the moon. Selene noticed this and fall in love. She came down from the heaven to be with him. She began to stray from her duty and night became more violent. Zeus cursed Endymion with eternal sleep but give him immortal and eternal youth. Selene visit him every three days out month creating New Moon. With Endymion she gave birth FIFTY daughters, whose became the lunar month and the handsome Narcissus, whose beauty led to a tragic end.
Cancer is the astrology sign that is packed full of contradictions so when it comes to independence; they possibly can or cannot be independent. On one side, they have the perseverance and drive to do what needs to be done, they are self-sufficient and do not need to depend on other people for the material and physical things in life. On the other hand, they depend on people for emotional support and encouragement. A Cancer that is not fully self-actualized will need the constant support of others and will not be very independent but the Cancer that is 'evolved' and has properly harnessed their emotional issues will be wildly successful as an independent human being. They crave attention and comfort from other people and they are happiest when they have a small, close knit group of friends or family.
The Cancer man will not be direct with you. He will approach you cautiously and slowly. He will be very romantic and flirty and attempt to court you and win your heart with lavish gifts and attention. The reason he will never be direct with you is that he has a strong underlying fear of rejection. Of you are interested in a Cancer man, you will probably have to make the first move and ask him on a date. He falls in love easily and will make you his whole world. Once you "belong to him", he will hold on to you and can become quite jealous and possessive. This is because he is worried he will lose you to another man and that would crush his spirit. He needs you to be loyal and faithful for he is the same, in a strong and close relationship, Cancer men are the most loyal of the astrology signs. They make excellent lovers for the tender person who loves romance and being swept off their feet. Cancer is very affectionate and thrives on holding hands all the time and constant physical contact as he absorbs the situation and experiences with his feelings. The cancer man is all about feeling. He might not show it however and might portray a calm and cool exterior but underneath, he feels deeply and intensely. Cancer men are easily offended so do not jokingly make fun of them for they will take offense and get hurt, but once again, this will not be known to you. He will simply sulk on his own while he tries to figure out and dissect what you said. Cancer men are excellent male protectors; they are like the knight in shining armor. If you are the kind of man or woman that likes being looked after and cared for, and loves affection and devotion, this romantic, sensual man is perfect for you.
Cancer is very physical. Expect sex with Cancer to be a fully encompassing sexual experience. Lots of tender foreplay, massages afterwards, candles lit by the bedside, soft music in the background, delicious scented potpourri, everything to appeal to all senses. It will be delicate and passionate and an experience you won't soon forget. To not expect too much novelty and experimentation because Cancer is a very conservative sign not my cup of tea. Some Cancer people might be willing to try something new but they will never be the ones to suggest it, you have to or it will never happen. They might go along with your idea because they do enjoy new experiences. Make them always feel safe and secure when trying anything new and they might love it and incorporate it into your regular sex life.

Do anybody notice that the Cancer sign look like a 69 position?
