According to the Chinese zodiac, you are “Metal.”
In Western Astrology, you are a Cancer.
Your words have a sharp edge to them.
You have a keenness that allows you to discern a person’s true nature with just one glance. You can be intimidating at times. Especially when you were young, you were likely very sharp in many ways. This may have been evident through your mature fashion and hobbies, or your tendency to make fun of older people. This sharpness can sometimes get you into trouble.
You are most likely very well aware that you are a very smart, quick-witted person. You have a great deal of intuition which allows you to think very quickly.
You may express your sharpness either through words, music, ideas or plans. After grasping something with your intuition, you likely process it in one of these ways.
Even those who come across as quiet and not so sharp at first glance are likely very talented in music, writing, programming, or planning.
If you have done any astrology in the past, then you already know that you are classified as a Cancer in Western astrology (to be 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 as “metal” (or more accurately, by the Chinese character for “庚”). You are masculine, hard-working, and direct. You have a will that moves intelligently and powerfully toward your goal. You have a chivalrous spirit and don’t like to be crooked.
Western astrology and the Four Pillars of Destiny are two different types of divination. However, they are the same in that they both use your birthday to determine your destiny. The laws of the two worlds, East and West, each determine the fate 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 characteristics and your nature as a metal. When interpreted together, you can be described as a “Steel Crab”. Many people born on this day are hard and sharp, just as the image associated with this word suggests.
