Crab on a Rock

According to the Chinese zodiac, you are a “Mountain.”

In Western astrology, you are a Cancer.

There is a combination of paternal strictness and maternal receptiveness found simultaneously in you.

Ideally, you would be able to live in harmony, but in some cases you may have a dual personality.

The paternalistic side within you causes you to stand tall and look down on things from a high place. You are confident in yourself and have a sense of stability and depth that can even be described as stubborn. You also seem to deal with people with sternness rather than kindness.

On the other hand, the maternal side of you gives you your ability to embrace others. It gives you a love of family, community, company, and humanity. It gives you a strong instinct to protect the people who you love.

However, paternal and maternal characteristics are not opposites. In fact, where paternity and maternity overlap, new life can be born. They both have their roots in love.

However, while they can coexist and even overlap, it is also true that they are polar opposites.  It is important for you to be aware of the fact that these two personalities live together within you.

If you have done any astrology in the past, then you already know you are classified as a Cancer in Western astrology (or to be more precise, your Sun sign is Cancer). Cancers are characterised as highly sensitive and loving people. They don’t like things to change too much, and they deeply cherish their memories.

On the other hand, in the Oriental divination system (the Four Pillars of Destiny) you are represented by the Chinese character for “mountain/rock” (or more accurately, by the Chinese character for “戊”). This means that you are like a mountain, standing firm and not taking things lightly. It is a destiny that allows you to see the big picture and endure both the good and the bad.

Western astrology and the Four Pillars of Destiny are two different types of divination. However, they are the same in that they both determine your destiny based on your birthday. The laws of the two worlds, East and West, each determine the destiny that presides at the moment of your birth.

In other words, you, a human being with a complex destiny, are interpreted from the standpoint of both the East and the West. This does not mean that one of these interpretations is correct and the other incorrect. Rather, this means that both should be interpreted in a three-dimensional, complementary way.

Here we will analyze your Cancer traits and your nature as a mountain or rock. When we interpret these two signs together, your destiny can be represented by the symbol of “Crab on a Rock”.
