Cancer Season Wants You to Relax in Your Shell

Cancer Season Wants You to Relax in Your Shell

Gemini season rushed in, and now it’s rushing out! If the über social, high-energy vibe of Gemini season was a little much for you, you’re finally getting the chance to chill when the Sun enters Cancer on June 21. This next month cools you down and helps you become better at tapping into your emotional side. Water signs Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces are thriving, while the cardinal signs Aries, Libra, and Capricorn are having a more hectic Cancer season.

The zodiac’s archetypal “mother” figure is Cancer. If you have a “mom friend” in your crew (no matter their gender), odds are they’re a Cancer. They’re natural caretakers. And no matter your own zodiac sign, this month is your chance to take on this nurturing energy and use it to show love to others. By doing this and adding an extra level of care and sensitivity to what you say and do this month, you can substantially deepen your relationships. Not just with your friends, but with your partner, your family, and even your peers.

Cancer, the most emotional sign, is ruled by the Moon. Just like the Moon’s shape is ever-changing, Cancers’ emotions are constantly shifting. It’s easy to take on this moody attitude during Cancer season, so if you feel yourself getting crabby, just scoot into your shell and side-step away from the drama. Cool off and go back to it later—knee-jerk emotional reactions can be especially bombastic right now.

Don’t expect much newness this month—Cancer season is all about going back to your roots, connecting with family, bonding with people you have history with, and finding security and stability in these things. Take it easy and give yourself a chance to recharge your batteries, because the party that is Leo season starts on July 22! Happy summer!

Read your Sun/Rising sign horoscope for Cancer season 2023:


You’re a mega couch potato this month, Aries. You’re not very extroverted, you rarely want to leave the house, and you know what? I support it! Get some much needed R&R. Stay at home, bond with your roommates/family members, and try to relax.


You have a lot of thoughts in your head, but you don’t always speak up about them. That’s changing this month. Cancer season is urging you to open your mouth. If you see something, think something, or feel some type of way, speak on it! You’re meant to become a better communicator now—but remember that communication involves listening, not just talking.


It seems people are pushing your buttons more lately. Or at least, that’s how it feels. You have strong opinions fueled by your passionate emotions, and sometimes, your beliefs don’t line up with others’. The sensitivity you’re feeling from Cancer season may make it seem like someone not agreeing with you is the same as them attacking you—but that’s not necessarily the case! Be flexible. Compromise a little. If you can’t, you might just want to stay in your own lane this month.


Happy birthday! You’re stepping into the spotlight now, and what you say goes. It feels easier to be yourself. People are paying more attention to you, too. Let your freak flag fly! Be yourself and be genuine. The relationships, projects, and jobs you start now will have serious significance in the future. Have fun!


Take a step (or several) back. This next month is all about stopping, reflecting, and assessing your “journey thus far.” There are a lot of leftovers from the past—friends, exes, jobs—that you haven’t fully dealt with, and they’re all coming back around now. It’s an emotional month, but you have to use this time to clear your slate so you can get a fresh start when Leo season begins!


Odds are you’ve been called your squad’s “mom friend” more than once, and this month is all about owning that title! Not only are you turning your buddies into your besties this month, but you’re also meeting tons of new friendly faces. Be extroverted! Flex your social skills! And most importantly, have fun!


What drives you? What motivates you? What makes you feel the need to succeed? If you can find that and let it fuel you this month, you’ll find nothing but success. This is a critical moment for you, Libra, especially in regards to career, and your performance is being evaluated. Do your best, and a promotion, raise, or bonus is certainly in your future. But if you flop, it’s all eyes on you.


With the Sun finally in like-minded water sign Cancer, you’re feeling better than you have in ages! This next month is all about broadening your horizons, however you can. Read a book, watch a docu-series, meet new people, or even go on a trip! By the end of the month, you’ll be surprised at how much more aware and well-rounded you’ve become.


You’re diving deep this month, Sagittarius. You’re always in motion, flying from one place to the next, but right now you need to let your feet touch the ground. Stop running from your feelings—honor, acknowledge, and accept them. This is a great time to open up to a trusted confidante—a therapist, close friend, or family member—and just “purge” all of those feelings you’ve been bottling up. Talk about these problems, listen to their advice, and find a resolution. You’ll feel so much lighter afterwards.


Cooperating and compromising is key when it comes to business efforts right now, because Cancer season is activating your chart’s relationships zone. That’s also why Cancer season is cuffing season for your sign! Relationships of all kinds are being improved right now, and if you’re looking for new connections, you’re meeting tons of new potential partners.


You focus so much on your friends, your job, etc. that you can forget to take care of yourself. Take a step back for a bit and take a look at yourself. You have three weeks of laundry on the floor, you haven’t swept in months, and you’re not getting up and active nearly as much as you should. Tiny changes make a BIG difference, Aquarius, and the healthy, productive habits you set now promise to last a long time.


This is one of the best months of the whole year for your sign, especially when it comes to love! First of all, Cancer season makes you more creative, confident, and self-expressive. The Sun is activating your chart’s zone of romance, sex, and fun, so you’re getting tons of action, too. Let loose and have a good time, Pisces. You deserve to start your summer off with a bang!
