    A little more about Cancer Season

    Keywords: Mothering, Emotional, Sensitive, Intuitive, Nostalgic  

      • Planetary/Luminary ruler: The Moon

    We celebrate the Summer Solstice every year on June 21st, and astrologically, we celebrate the first day of Cancer Season. Cancer is the FIRST water sign. While its energy is known for being a bit passive-aggressive (Cancer people hate to hurt anyone’s feelings), never doubt that as a Cardinal sign, they’re some of the hardest working people out there. 

    Cancer is the great cosmic Mother. These are our pack leaders who intuitively know what everyone needs and can take care of others in profoundly psychic ways.

    Cancer energy represents the home and ancestral roots. Rather than the attention being directed outward, it’s a deep, cathartic flow into the subterranean foundations of the soul.

    Cancer is ruled by the Moon, which is all about sensitive emotions and hidden realms. Like the Moon, Cancer people tend to shy away from the bright lights, preferring the protective comfort of their private home life. 

    Journal prompts to connect with Cancer energy:

    1. What structures help you feel most held?
    2. How do you tap into your intuition on a regular basis, and if you don’t, how might you try?
    3. Who in your life makes you feel like the most comfortable version of yourself? Why?
    4. What does the word “family” mean to you?
