Decans of the Minor Arcana Part 4
What every good magician needs to know.
This month we enter the 4th sign of the Zodiac – the Cardinal Water sign of Cancer, ruled by the Moon.
As initiators of each season, Cardinal signs also correspond to the first triad of each minor suit. So we know that the sign of Cancer will relate to the 2, 3, 4’s, and the Suit is Cups because Cancer = Water and Cups = Water

Not every opportunity is one to take. Know when the offer is too good to be true, or is simply tempting because it is familiar. This is a good time to practice emotional boundaries, and not be too easily swayed.
