On Sunday June 20th we celebrate the Summer Solstice and transition from Gemini to Cancer Season. Cancer is the first Water sign of the Zodiac Wheel ruled by the Moon. The Moon reigns over emotions, intuition, mystery, Divine perception and the inner self. Cancers are known to be receptive, sensitive, sympathetic, empathetic, intuitive and quite imaginative. Cancer is represented by the crab, symbolizing a hard exterior but a soft and delicate interior. Crabs can be threatening with their snapping claws but will retreat inside their shell or scurry back to the safety of the ocean if they feel that danger is afoot. Cancers can be a little contradictory in that they love adventures but value safety and security above all else. Princess Diana, Ernest Hemingway, Tom Hanks, Frida Kahlo, Nelson Mandela, Linda Ronstadt, Meryl Streep and Robin Williams are just a few notable Cancerians!

Most people will associate Cancer Season with emotions and lots of tears. While watery Cancer will definitely bring up a multitude of emotions, Cancer Season also encourages us to use those emotions for good and to empathize with our fellow humans. When we reach down deep and evaluate our feelings and emotions, we are actually able to be our most authentic and empathetic selves. With these deep and often intense emotions, comes clarity and figuring out what is really important. These times can be tough but they also bring revelations and resolutions. If you find your emotions or feelings changing rapidly, do not dismiss this as being moody or fickle. Rather take these changes as signs and indications of where your attention or focus should turn to. This is a great practice of self-awareness which in turn allows us to expand our compassion and understanding. Pick up some books, attend workshops, listen to podcasts, watch documentaries and meditate on these things. No matter what, remember that intense emotions and feelings will pass.
Cancer Season is also an opportune time to get your home or space in order. It’s integral that you cultivate a safe space for you to live, learn, grow and create. This could mean your home space but it also means your energy, the company you keep and the community around you.
Take special care of yourself this Cancer Season. Cancer favors self care and encourages us to do all the small things that make big differences; cook, clean, sleep, engage in intimacy and gather with family and friends. Building these bonds with ourselves and others creates the safety and security we need in order to live healthy and vibrant lives.
