    Cancer Season! Re-Integrating from COVID and Black Lives Matter–an overdue Revolution, waking us up to heal the past–as we ease into this much needed and nourishing Cancer season. Cancer, the zodiac sign attributed to our roots, family, and the divine feminine sign that aims to protect and nurture.

    Cancer season is marked by the first day of Summer, Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year when we move from glittery Gemini to sultry and alluring Cancer. In Gemini season, there was an aliveness, a chaotic buzz that meant the world around us could no longer go unnoticed. Now, during Cancer season, when the amount of light changes gradually, and we bask in the reflective light of our emotions, we’ll begin to digest and slowly heal the past three months. As the first water sign of the zodiac, Cancer is where we experience the soul through the emotional body. Ruled by the Moon, Cancer is the light of consciousness, the feeling of all that is familiar, and the precursor for soulful expression. This season, although moody and introspective, does allow for deeper bonds to be made, family ties to be strengthened, and for you to get lost in the watery abyss of emotional sustenance. We all want to feel more secure, to know that our relationships are nourishing and meaningful, and to protect what we love and value (what we consider home–with whom, in our country, and the world). The Climate is Ripe for nourishing equality, taking care of one another, and healing our past as a nation, globe, and as a human race. When we neglect and demean a particular group(s) of people, we are going against the very grain of what it means to be human.

    June 21–New Moon Solar Eclipse in Cancer: changes to home and family + work balance. The United States Sun Sign is Cancer, which means that we can expect to see more unexpected changes unfolding over the next six months (the time that an Eclipse has an effect).

    June 23–Neptune Retrograde: intuition, forms of escapism, i.e., being delusional and unrealistic, boundaries, creative, and psychic downloads, are all part of the process. While Neptune is retrograde, you’ll be refining this process, and more aware of where the above mentioned is out of balance. Be particularly mindful of victim/martyr roleplaying, more confusion, misplaced motives, and for our immune system to be more susceptible. Stay safe, extend compassion to everyone you come into contact with, and strive to develop a stronger connection to your intuition during this Neptune Retrograde transit.

    June 25–Venus direct in Gemini. Hopefully more mindful about how you’re using social media, your voice, and listening to others.

    July 12–Mercury direct in Cancer. More aware of how the past affects the present, and why feelings matter.

    July 20–second New Moon in Cancer this month! Building on the Solar Eclipse from June 21 opposite Pluto and Jupiter–even in the face of opposition, we can succeed. Challenged to honor our “Feel” our feelings, we realize how meaningful they actually are.
