The Guide

The summer solstice marks the sun's entrance into the wise, nurturing, and emotive sign of Cancer. Though not as lively and carefree as a pool party, this water sign offers relief from Gemini's small talk and calendar invites in exchange for a fulfilling, rich inner world and romanticism of life.

Ruled by the moon, the symbolism of phases and tides can offer perspective on the constant evolution that Cancer experiences. As the crab navigates water and land, it skillfully survives whatever current or change—existing in both worlds with determination and wisdom. From various terrain to the shift of shells, the crab is constantly in touch with the inevitability of change.

Cancer season gifts us the opportunity to trust in our emotions and cycles of everything. This season can teach us all to recognize our feelings, examine what's caught in the sand and seaweed, discover what deserves sacred protection, and decide what's ready to be shared with the world. Over the next month, you can reconnect with your roots, your loved ones, and your emotions for deeper connections and a little romanticism.
