Last Degrees of the Crab

Monday, July 19th, 2010

As the Sun heads into the last few degrees of Cancer, I thought it might be helpful to get a little more insight into how to work with planets with this placement (in any sign). The placement is called “anaretic,” and when a planet is about to change signs it can be a bit like if it were “void of course” (not making any meaningful aspects to other planets).

In this brief Q & A from Astrology Secrets Revealed, Eric writes, “The words ‘late in the game’ or ‘advanced process’ come to mind. Yet for some reason, I know that these planets often prove difficult or demanding, like if you don’t deal with them, it’s like nothing happens. So look at these things carefully, and search your life for examples of how you deal or don’t deal with the situations that the chart is pointing to.” He goes on to give a four-step method to working with planets in an anaretic placement, as well as an illustrative example from his own chart.
