The brutal architecture and atmosphere are not uncommon for water sign Cancer, regardless of what superficial judgement of the imagined reflexes of this sign may say. On the contrary: Cancer fills the building with its emotional potential of pain, fear, dullness, melancholy, digestion, fertility and the focus on the “practical needs” of individual emotionality. It is this reflex from which the fertility of Cancer arises and children grow inside their mothers belly even during the hardest of times. Cancer applies its inner emotional needs onto buildings making it much more independent from outward judgement of form and design than other signs. That accounts especially for Sagittarius the dependent addict of luxurious design and ornament, Libra the sign of prettyness, harmony and naive painting or Capricorn which is so cold all by itself that it might start to freeze from within when exposed to such architecture. It is this aspect of authenticity in Cancer that makes the sign the condition and true significator of modernity in art and architecture.
