Crab


The first resident of the Aquarium!

Carl Jung writes-

In astrology, Cancer is a feminine and watery sign, and the summer solstice takes place in it. In Propertius it makes a sinister appearance.

'Fear thou the ill-omened back of the eight-footed crab'. De Grubernatis says: " the crab... causes now the death of the solar hero and now that of the monster". As De Grubernatis thinks, the crab stands now for the sun and now for the moon, according to whether it goes backwards or forwards.
