What To Expect This Cancer Season – Hugs, Tears, and Healing

As The Sun Enters Into Cancer, This Is Your Clear-Cut Guide To Reconnecting With The Feminine Energy.

Symbol: The Crab
Ruling Planet and House: The Moon, 4th House of Home and Family

Element: Water
Mode: Cardinal
Associated Word: “Feeling”

Wipe that smirk off your face cause it’s all tears from now on. Just kidding, but really, because as of June 21 through July 22, 2022, we officially are in the heat of Cancer season. With all the off-the-wall chaos, glib of tongues, and often “butterfly” like approach to life you may have experienced within the past month, the Sun entering Cancer may arrive as a relief. 

Note: With Mercury and Jupiter making a sextile, this will highly benefit our capacity for abundant and clear communication. Expect heartfelt communication this month. June 20 through the 23rd will be a very prominent time for negotiating or kick-start any brand partnerships that have been on your radar.

Given that the Moon rules over Cancer in the 4th House of Home and Family, this season is a perfect time to lean more on your feminine energy and reach out to whoever makes you feel loved, protected, and cherished being yourself. Revitalizing contact with your femininity may manifest as feeding your senses or simply allowing yourself the space to feel your feelings; stretching, dancing, and honoring your body internally and externally.

In Western (Tropical) Astrology, the Moon is representative of the personal self, the feelings, and the unconscious. In Vedic, it can be understood as “The Mother.” It stands for security, instinctual patterns, and the ability to relate to or nurture others. Depending on the location of Cancer in your natal chart, this can also symbolize an attunement from the past, which may have been operating at an instinctive level in your present life. 

With Cancer associated with the element of water, this is not the time to be neglecting your emotions. The water element is the “yin” energy of emotion, which means that it flows through everything and connects at a deeper and more unconscious level than that provided by logical thought, which you may find in an air sign. The capacity for emotions to run the show is often associated with the water element. This may provide insight into why you may be feeling a bit more moody than usual.

Cancerians, people with their Sun in the sign of Cancer, can be regarded as moody, with ever-evolving emotions. Though often, they are incredibly loving and highly value their home life. Cancerians may benefit from shedding the light of conscious reason on their habitual patterns and focusing on their true goals. For other water-dominant signs, such as Scorpio or Pisces, this month may feel like home to you. Though for signs like Libra, Aquarius, or Gemini, this is an excellent time to hit play on Lana Del Rey’s, a Cancer sun, “Summertime Sadness,” locate your journal and let the tears run freely. Remember that to feel it to heal!
