Constellation Cancer,
you live simultaneously
in different times:
as a miserable being
crushed by Hercules,
on a side,
or as the House of the Moon,
the Sun of the South,
the Horoscope of the World,
or the Northern Gate of the Sun,
on the other side ...
or as a sacred being,
or as the place where Comet Halley
was seen for the first time.

You use to go back,
Perhaps we'll learn from you
to travel in time.
