It’s hard to believe that Gemini season is almost over, but the Sun officially moves into the sign of Cancer on June 21st this month. In addition to being the official start of summer, Cancer season calls us all to reflect on the things in our lives we want to nurture and protect. The heat of the summer is a super fertile and highly energetic time of year, so it’s time to follow through on all the seeds and intentions we planted in the springtime, and to gather with those we love to celebrate.

On June 21 — the same day as the summer solstice and the longest day of the year — the sun will leave its spot in Gemini and make its way over to the sign of the crab, meaning that Cancer season has finally arrived. For the next month, we’ll feel more connected to our roots, more sentimental, and ready to connect deeper with our homes and ourselves. Cancer season is often an emotional time, yes — but who ever said crying was a bad thing?
This a very important point in our astrological year, calling it a reset of the overall energy for the collective. Cancer is the first cardinal sign as well as the first water sign of the zodiac, so it holds a very initiatory energy. While 1st June is typically thought to be the beginning of the second half of the year, in reality, 21st June is the real kick-off of the second part of 2022. If our New Year’s resolutions didn’t work out (or most likely shifted), this day lends us a second chance.
We’ll be feeling a bit more emotional and perceptive of other people’s energy. Cancer is very intuitive, so whenever the sun falls into this sign, we all get to feel our intuition and senses getting stronger. It is safe to say that we should lean on and guide ourselves more based on what our gut tells us.
Following your intuition is key for the next month. While it’s always a good idea to look within, now our gut feelings will be even more spot on. Make sure to listen. Being this in tune with your emotions means that it’s also time to embrace the homebody-ness of Cancer — most of us have been go, go, going since the start of 2022, and now that we’re finally halfway done with the year, it’s time to actually sit back and relax. Rest is always important — especially with burnout being such a collective experience — so prioritize that this month.
Chilling out can also help clear your mind and foster both physical and emotional connections. Cancer season is a time to understand yourself and your home environment on a deeper, more emotional level. This time of year is truly meant for you to understand that you have three homes in this lifetime: our planet, the space that you live in, and your physical vessel. When we connect with all three of these home spaces during Cancer season, we feel at ease.
It bears repeating that this is a very emotional month ahead, but it’s still a month with tremendous potential. Dig deep, reconnect with your inner self, and embrace those who matter most to you. In the meantime, make sure to get plenty of R&R—you’ll want to have your batteries fully charged for Leo season!! TIP: remember to read your sun and rising sign.

Settle down, Aries! This month is all about chilling out—you’re spending lots of time staying in solo, and you’re not in the mood to overextend yourself at work. Stay at home, embrace your introverted side, and relax. You deserve some rest!
You’re learning how to express your feelings! As an earth sign, emotions can be difficult for you to manage, but right now, opening up doesn’t feel strange at all. Tell your friends how much they mean to you, tell your partner that you love them more, and make sure to open yourself up to receiving the feelings of others, too.
It’s time to commit. Not commit to a person or a relationship, but to your values. Who or what means the most to you? What are your beliefs? The morals that you absolutely stand by, one hundred percent? Focus, Gemini! This isn’t the time to fool around—you need to get serious.
Happy birthday! Everyone’s vibing on the same level, and right now, it’s all about you. Focus on whichever relationships, projects, or jobs that you deem the most important, because you can make some serious magic happen. Anything that you initiate right now will have serious longevity!
You’re feeling a little crabby (yes, I’m making another crab pun), and my advice is to just retreat into your shell. You need alone time! You’re dealing with dreams and memories from the past—both good and bad—you need to take some time to sit with your feelings and sort through everything. You need a clean plate so when your birthday comes around you can live life to the fullest, baggage free!
Hey, social butterfly! This month’s astrology is encouraging you to fine-tune your crew—you’re figuring out who you fit in with the best, making new friends, and ditching frenemies. It might feel like your pals are playing musical chairs, moving in and out of your squad, but by the end of the month, you and your besties will be thriving.
The pressure is on this month, Libra, especially when it comes to life at the office. You’re focusing a lot on your job—not just the busy work you have to deal with, but with your career goals in general—and it’s important that you work as hard as you can. Good work will be rewarded, maybe with a raise or even a promotion, but bad work will be equally recognized, and can lead to some serious consequences.
Despite Cancer season’s introverted vibes, you’re actually feeling a little more adventurous. This month is encouraging you to broaden your horizons and expand your perspective on life. This can happen by learning to listen more, connecting with people with a variety of different backgrounds or beliefs, or just binging as many Netflix docs as you can—whatever you do, you’re becoming a more well-rounded person.
People often say you’re a flaky, non-committal sign, but this month, you’re defying the stereotypes! Cancer season is all about forming deep, meaningful relationships, and you’re really embodying these vibes and taking your most important relationships to the next level. It’s a very emotional time, but the potential for experiencing true intimacy is sky-high.
This month is all about cooperating, collaborating, and working with others—whenever you’re with your boo, a business colleague, or your bestie, you’re getting a ton done. Cancer season is also cuffing season for your sign, so if you’re looking for love, you’re totally in luck!
You need to work on emotional regulation, Aquarius. If you feel like you’re getting absolutely crushed by stress, take a deeper look at things—maybe your job is kicking your ass, or your place is a total mess, or you’re in a toxic relationship. Be practical, focus on getting rid of the root of the problem, and try to tidy up and set healthier habits. You’ll feel better than ever by the end of the month.
The Sun is activating your chart’s zone of romance, sex, and fun for the next month, so you’re getting tons of action, experiencing loads of romance, and just having a plain ol’ good time! No, you’re not having a ~perfect~ Cancer season, but you are running into tons of opportunities to express love, receive love, and live life to the fullest. Enjoy!
