CancerJune 21 - July 21
Cancer, dive into the depths. The moon is in the final sign of the zodiac, Pisces – inviting us collectively into a more intuitive and sensitive way of existing. As a water sign, you’re here for it. We’ll collectively shift out of the mental spheres, and more deeply into realms of creativity and connection. Cancer, ruled by the moon – you may notice your emotions rising to the surface in a more intense or heightened way. If so, slow it down, make space and pay attention to them. The last months of the year always tend to be quite accelerated in terms of wrapping up admin plus increased social activities! In an ideal world, hanging out with loved ones wouldn’t be energetically exhausting – but sometimes it is. Don’t feel guilty about creating space for yourself and drawing boundaries where necessary.

Key Themes: Finding support, self-appreciation, noticing the beauty around you
Cancer, for you the month of November will carry a particular flavor of emotional depth and beauty. We’re between eclipses, which do affect you profoundly (dued to your planetary ruler being the moon). Still, with some awareness and grace, these weeks can catalyze some profound healing and self-growth.
On and around November 5th you might be feeling a conflict between your heart and the more practical elements of life, with an opposition between Venus and Uranus. Uranus has been in Taurus for the year, teaching us all about getting outside the box with how we approach the basics: food, work, our homes and resources. The world is definitely shifting, and it’s imperative that you flow alongside (rather than against it). Be mindful of becoming too rigid in regarding your circumstances or accepting discomfort. Anything is possible Cancer, decide to make it happen – and you will.
We have another eclipse with the Full Moon in Taurus on November 8th. As this moon activates your sector of community and social networking, it could be a good time to connect with your tribe (family, friends or community). With tense connections to Saturn, this Full Moon isn’t going to feel all rainbows and sunshine, but there is a message here of allowing yourself to be supported. You don’t have to carry the weight of the world on your own Cancer.
On November 16th Venus enters Sagittarius, and is joined the very next day by Mercury. Cancer, Sagittarian energy works well with your temperament. There’s no denying it has been a long (loooong) year, and this burst of fiery momentum will give you a bit of a boost. This is furthered as we leave the watery scorpionic depths and enter Sag season on November 22. We’re approaching the very last month of the year, why not go out with a bang?
November 23 presents us with a powerful New Moon in Sagittarius, giving us one of the last major seed-sowing energies of the year. Cancer, why not use this night (and days surrounding) to start reflecting on 2022, plus all that you’d like to call in for 2023? December tends to be a bit of a blur, so some conscious visualization and manifestation efforts here could go a long way. As well as focusing on what you’d like to invite in, take a moment to honor your journey so far. Look at where and how you’ve grown, what’s changed for you – and what you’re most proud of. Celebrate yourself dear Cancer, you deserve that and more.
Plus, with Jupiter ending its retrograde and going direct in Pisces (November 23rd), it will feel like there’s something to celebrate. This kind of planetary vibe evokes magic, clarity and connection to the bigger picture. If you have been feeling a little ‘off,’ or disconnected, this will change right about now. Take time for yourself and slow life down where possible. It’s finding beauty in those little candid moments that will be most healing here.

Ruler: The Moon
Where You’ll Find Them: Walking down the beach, cooking soul food, snuggling in bed
What They Avoid: Confrontation, deadlines, and overly aggressive situations
Cancer, the fourth sign of the zodiac, is quite possibly the most sensitive — but you wouldn’t outwardly know it. Cancer’s symbol is The Crab, and this explains their tendency to hide in their shell whenever the outward world gets too tough to handle. As a Water sign ruled by the Moon, Cancer is deeply emotional, and easily absorbs the vibes in their environment. Cancer is full of compassion for the world, particularly the underprivileged, the needy, children, animals, and the oppressed. There is a nostalgic element to Cancer that can lead to them living in the past and having trouble letting go.
Professionally, Cancer is a great collaborator and team-player. However, sometimes they remain in the background for far too long, out of fear of stepping into the spotlight. Cancers make incredible artists, but they can be overly protective of their work rather than sharing their art with the world. If Cancer is able to overcome such shyness, their art and transparency can heal the world. Cancer’s nurturing spirit also makes them great therapists, teachers, interior designers, cooks, and spiritual healers. There’s something about Cancer that is full of wisdom, making them old souls. That’s why people may joke around and call them the grandparents of the zodiac, even in their youth.
Cancer loves to take care of those they love, so having a Cancer as a friend is a true blessing. What Cancer must learn, however, is to establish healthy boundaries and not let their generosity or kindness be taken advantage of. Sometimes Cancer gives away too much of their energy, and if it’s not reciprocated it can feel very painful. Instead of directly letting the person know about that pain, Cancer may resort to passive-aggressive behavior, and that only exacerbates the problem. Cancer therefore will benefit from being more honest and assertive in friendships and relationships.
As a lover, while Cancer may be very slow to trust and open up to you, they are definitely some of the biggest believers in love. Many Cancers dream of having a family and being married to their soulmate, and this can lead to them becoming deeply invested in the relationships they pursue, to the point of sometimes being clingy or possessive of their lover(s). This can sometimes scare their lover(s) away, but at other times it reassures their lover(s) of Cancer’s loyalty. Whatever the case may be, Cancer would benefit from directing all of that love and attention they offer others back to themselves first and foremost. Cancer’s greatest lesson is to put their own self first and cater to their own needs consistently. In doing so, they’re able to extend the purest type of love into the lives of those around them.
