Cancer season has arrived, friends! The beginnings of summer debuting with a water sign? Makes all the sense in the world.
While Cancer is often known as a sign overwhelmed with emotion, it is also known for its nurturing, dedication, and compassion for others. This season is shining a light on the spaces that may want to stir up some intense emotion within us—but also wants us to work through these feelings. The desire to connect with our friends, family, and patterns is also prevalent during this time. On June 28th, the New Moon in Cancer arrives to signal new beginnings calling for our attention. This is great for assessing our feelings and being intentional about our relationships. Mercury and Venus will also be joining the Sun in Cancer in July, which will only up those sentimental and sensitive vibes. July 13th will also give us the Full Moon in Capricorn—the other half of Cancer’s desire for security, loyalty, and dedication may have us view things a tad more practically, but still with some softness.
Check out your Sun and Rising signs below to see what you can expect for Cancer season!

Cancer rules your house of home, roots, and family, which means you’re going to find yourself likely tending to some important aspects on that front. After the considerable boost in your confidence levels over the last few months, it makes sense to turn some of that energy elsewhere, and the New Moon in Cancer will have some suggestions in that area.

Adventure is calling, so don’t be afraid to answer it. Your house of travel will be taking the spotlight, so this is the time to book the flights and visit some places you’ve been dying to go to.
