Sun Enters Cancer

The Sun 'is in' Cancer

The Sun ‘is in’ Cancer

   At 1 pm CDT today, 20 July, the Sun in its apparent eastward motion crosses the boundary between the zodiacal constellations of the Gemini Twins and Cancer the Crab.
   The Sun is said to be ‘in’ Cancer – a reference to the Sun being somewhere within the boundaries, or borders of a constellation.
   This also marks the Astronomical or true position of the Sun’s position along the ecliptic relative to the thirteen constellations of the Astronomical zodiac in the background.
