CancerJune 21 - July 21
Cancer, you’re deepening your connection to spirit. The moon (your ruler) is about to enter your fellow water-sign, Pisces. This transit tends to bring us all collectively into a more spiritual, empathic and flowy way of being. It’s particularly potent for you. Because a number of planetary connections (both harmonious and less so) between the Moon and Mercury are going to highlight some of your Mercury retrograde themes – the next few days will be a good time to lean into this healing journey. You might notice a particular theme of spirituality coming through. It’s as though the universe is inviting you into a space of connecting with it in a more profound way. It might be worth reflecting on what steps you can take to find a sense of sacredness into each and every moment of your life. How can everyday feel like your own personal paradise?
Cancer, the month begins with the New Moon in Pisces receiving hopeful and expansive blessings from Jupiter. Take this time to acknowledge how much you’ve improved personally. What you put out into the world these days will be very resonant. Speak and act from all of the love you have in your heart to give. On the 6th, Mars and Venus enter Aquarius, bringing a whole lot of passion and drive into your bonds and collaborations. Things are going to get really intimate. Mercury enters Pisces in your area of spirituality on the 9th, and your focus will go towards the bigger picture rather than the mundane details of your life. If there’s something new you want to learn, this is a good time for it. On the 18th, we have the Full Moon in Virgo. Gifts want to come through you. You are a well of generosity. Tune into how you can give of yourself and never be lacking. On the 20th, the spring equinox brings the Aries Season and the beginning of the zodiacal year. Then Mercury enters Aries as well on the 27th. It’s time to bring all of your courage into your work and into your long term goals.

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.
