Cancer – Saubhadra
Saubhadra represents samyama, which means holding together. Samyama groups together the three concepts of concentration, meditation and samadhi as expressed by Patanjali– it represents an intense state of absorption on the object of concentration.
Perhaps Cancer is not the first sign to come to an astrologer’s mind when thinking of concentration, but samyama does not so much indicate intellectual concentration, but a deeper kind of concentration, with one’s own being. In this sense, the similarities with Cancer become apparent, as Cancer has the capacity to become fully absorbed on what interests it. In fact, Cancer can be the most personal and attached sign of the zodiac, but also the most caring and attentive, like a mother.
Saubhadra represents the highest expression of Cancer, when it has learnt to see the whole universe as its own, just like in samadhi.
