• Today is International Women’s Day!!! We celebrate women’s achievements throughout history and across nations. Due to the Moon being in Cancer today + Mercury in Pisces with the Sun + Venus is in Retrograde I have selected 2 great writers from the past with a signature of Cancer in their Birth Chart (one Latin-American and one Australian to be fair to both sides of my heart) .

    1) Dorothea Mackellar, an Australian writer, who also studied Spanish, was born in Sydney on July 1, 1885, under a Stellium of planets (Sun, Mercury and Venus) in the sign of Cancer. Her sensitivity lead her to write, at age 19, a poem titled “My Country,” which became one of Australia’s unofficial hymns.

    Here is a paragraph from it:

    “I love a sunburnt country
    a land of sweeping plains
    of ragged mountain ranges
    of droughts and flooding rains
    I love her far horizons
    I love her jewel- sea
    her beauty & her terror –
    the wide brown land for me”…

    2) Gabriela Mistral (Lucila Godoy Alcayaga), a Chilean writer and the first Latin American to receive a Nobel Prize for Literature (1945), was born in Vicuña, on April 7, 1889 under the sensitive Moon in Cancer, in harmony with Venus and Mars in the sign of Taurus.

    Here is my favourite poem from her that connects with her Piscean Ascendant:

    The Sleep – Wave

    It is rising now, 
    the tide of sleep
    from the sacred south 
    and the final sea.
    It comes straight
    to whistle and call,
    climbing the world
     a white animal
    It’s passed Taitao, 
    Niebla, Chañaral,
    At your door, your cradle 
    it’s going to fall
    It rises from the ancient pole
    Mortal and eternal,
    From the Antartic sea
    It comes, and sinks again

    Note: The International Women’s Day logo is in purple and white and features the symbol of Venus, which is also the symbol of being female.
