The Sun enters Cancer on Wednesday, June 21, 2023, 7:58 a.m PDT. It's the first time the Sun will be in a water element since the start of the astrological new year. This new element of water brings healing and nourishment. Sensitivities during this time are dramatically heightened as well, as Cancer Season will be answering to the Moon, its ruler, which switches signs every 2-3 days.

It's also the Northern Hemisphere's Summer Solstice, which indicates the official change in seasons from spring to summer. Often in Nature, this is the time you'll see young animals leaving the nest, learning how to fend for themselves. As astrology is merely a reflection of Nature, Cancer Season is no different. This is a time to flee your comfort zones, and learn how to fly. It's the time after Graduation Season, when everyone else has gone back to their lives, and left you build up your own. It may feel isolating, but as the land is fertile, letting you go into the wild now gives you the best chance at survival. So you see, this cycle of Nature is always on your side, always working for your best interest.

As a Cardinal Sign, Cancer leads, and so this is a fruitful time, especially for those with Cancer in personal placements (Sun, Moon, Rising, Mercury, Venus, Mars) to launch something new, and take a risk on their creative ventures. As Cancer is very in touch with their feelings, you also have to have some kind of personal connection or stake in what it is you're putting out, otherwise, others will not connect with it.

If Gemini Season was for you to say your piece, Cancer Season is for asking to be represented, to be heard. You may spend time now looking to see whether the actions of the ones you hold close reflect those of one who has seen how things affect you emotionally, and has chosen to ensure that your peace goes undisturbed. Cancer asks to be still and observe the subtleties, to understand non-verbal cues, to listen with more than just one's ears, to rely on intuition. In what new ways can you allow your intuition to inform you in this brave new world you're building?

Resist the urge to waste any more time reminiscing and regretting the past. Connect with others in the here and now. Bare your soul and allow others to bare theirs without judgment. Create your own safe space and sanctuary where you can continue to bloom into your divinity. Give yourself love and grace so that you yourself can become a total expression of that love. Have fun getting in touch with your feminine side.
