After the frenzy of Gemini Season--with its eclipses, Mercury retrograde, Saturn retrograde, and the second Saturn-Uranus square of the year--let's slow down and slip into the healing waters of Cancer Season.
Cancer is the sign of caring, caregiving, family (however you've constructed it), and community. With its strong shell and claws, the crab protects itself and those it loves from the onslaught of life's incessant, ever-changing tides. Being an incarnated being is hard--financially, emotionally, relationally, and otherwise. Sometimes a retreat into our shells and into the calm waters of a protected tide pool are just what we need to recharge before launching back into the melee of life.
Creatively, Cancer Season encourages us to tap into what we care about most, to interrogate where we've suffered, to see creativity as a way to connect, as well as to remember. Follow me on Instagram this season to dig into these themes and tap into the energy of Cancer for your creative projects.
Astrologically, with Mars in Leo already and Venus soon to join it, the global energy will be supportive of creativity, self-expression, and a general sense of vitality. Mercury stations direct in a couple days, shifting us from a time of reflection and review to one where productive, incisive thought is possible.
Even with this supportive, action-oriented astrology, there is still a global and personal transformation taking place. This Cancer Season is helping us to process what we learned during the Cancer-Capricorn-heavy period of 2019-2020. Coming off the Uranus-Taurus square last week, the Venus/Mars transits in Leo are helping us to actualize the revolution this major astrology is bringing to our lives. Read your Cancer Season Horoscope below to see what all this means for you specifically.
