The Month
of The Domesticator

Sign Cancer
Mode Feeling
Motto I Feel

The Month of the Domesticator is the fourth month in the Personology year, representing deep feeling, protectiveness and the home. It symbolically relates to the period when the human being typically matures, settles into a home base and acquires the use of introspection as a means to understand life. Specifically, it can be compared to the evolution and refinement of emotional experience in the young adult. Having children of one’s own for the first time brings out strongly protective instincts.

This month is associated with highly personal emotions and also with the life of the subconscious. Dreams are integral to their world. If the ocean may be said to represent the universe of diffuse feeling, then this month can symbolize the crystallization of those emotions in a single being. These people hide their extremely sensitive interior from view.

People born during the Month of the Domesticator transmute airy, verbal and changeable energies into fixed, steadfast and straightforward ones.

Their personality can be likened to the young adult seeking to establish their own home, career and perhaps family for the first time. Although they are protective and they know how to wait, it is a mistake to assume these are passive individuals. They can be quite aggressive in getting what they want, but often prefer to avoid making demands—expecting others to understand their needs, sensitivities and diverse moods.

A strong bond of empathy with another person is far more important to a person born this month than reason or logic. As with the young adult, deep emotional friendship is of the utmost importance to them, and with it the corresponding need to trust and share. Indeed, they find it hard to work with those with whom they do not share a personal bond of mutual understanding.

These are often unusual people who are well aware of what sets them apart from others. Their talent for non-verbal expression is reflected in the arrangement of their home, with special emphasis on the kitchen and bedroom. Activities such as eating, sleeping, sexual expression and the sharing of affection or sympathy must be private, regular and satisfying in order to offer the unusual amount of psychological support so necessary to them. Without these, they grow nervous and irritable.

A quiet evening alone with friends can be an ecstatic experience for those born during the Month of the Domesticator. Yet, many have strange aspects to their personalities which must be periodically revealed in public. Generally speaking, appreciation is not as important to these people as is expression and release. Of course, they are particularly persuasive in the private sphere, where they best work their special brand of magic.

Their Pattern of Development

The Way of Compassion holds considerable promise for those born during the Week of the Empath, providing they can work to keep their emotions in hand. Highly sensitive and caring, Week of the Empath people nonetheless have a tendency to believe that they alone are responsible for the world’s ills and they alone are capable of solving the world’s problems. The danger here is of developing a hypervigilant and overly responsible attitude. Week of the Empath people should take care to establish some boundaries between themselves and others, for it is only by releasing control that they will be able to discover the joy of giving and working for the larger, less personal goals of life. Nevertheless, Week of the Empath people are deeply attracted to spirituality and have a natural affinity for the kind of moral code found in many world religions. Thus, they do wonderfully well as ambassadors and spokespeople for the higher good and a better way of life for all humankind.
