Cancer Mala – Receptive


The Cancer Mala was created especially for those born between June 21st and July 22nd, the Cancer represents home and family and is all about nurturing, caring and empathy. It’s also about hugs and feeling that someone cares. Cancer’s motto, “I Feel”, sums up the emotional qualities associated with this sign and its ruling planet, the Moon.

Emotions fluctuate with daily experiences, events, situations, and the people they encounter; feeling different about each, up, down, and in between. They are known to be a moody sign, but also intuitive and receptive, easily picking up on current vibrations, a trait of this signs water element.

Cancer in essence is the symbol of the crab, a crab moves sideways, steering clear of any potential difficulties, and when it feels threatened, it retreats into its hard, protective shell. Because of their receptive and impressionable nature, they easily pick up vibrations from other people and their immediate environment. They are imaginative and creative in every facet of their lives, and particularly enjoy using their talents to create a warm, comfortable home.

Symbol: The Crab

Motto: “I Feel”

Cancer Traits: protective, nurturing, family-oriented, moody, psychic, sympathetic, tenacious, loving, shy, caring, sensitive

The Cancer Mala – Gemstone Properties

If you have a Cancer Sun, Moon, or Ascendant sign in your astrological birth chart you may find the gemstones in this mala to be of interest.

Moonstone teaches Cancers that one makes progress only by striving for the highest ideals. 

Pearls are the natural symbols of beauty and perfection. They confer wisdom and sincerity on Cancer, helping to guard against negativity. 

Quartz crystal is the ideal meditation stone and is used in this mala as the guru/end bead above the tassel. Quartz crystal has an “enlightening” and relaxing effect on all the chakras.

Robles wood comes from the Cassia tree, a medium sized evergreen with yellow flowers. The wood beads are a warm medium brown color with a smooth texture.

Not a Cancer?

Since antiquity Moonstone has been known as the stone of love and lovers. It is said to be a "stone of new beginnings" and as it's name suggests a strong connection to the moon and intuition. The stone is reflective like the moon which reminds us that, as the moon waxes and wanes, so everything is part of a cycle of change. Pearls promote wisdom and contentment, they are a symbol of women's perfect beauty.
