Welcome to Cancer season.
Moving deeper into our astrological journey through the signs, after Aries is born, Taurus grounds us to this world, & Gemini fires up our minds, Cancer comes in & welcomes us to the abstract world of our emotions.
In a world where we are conditioned to repress our feelings, Cancer encourages us to feel every single emotion that passes through us. For the next few weeks, you may find the collective atmosphere, as well as your own personal world, feeling a bit moodier than usual. That’s because Cancer energy is all about exploring your emotions.
Cancer’s superficial reputation is crabby, moody, & sensitive. However, Cancer just wants you to feel. Emotion is energy in motion, & Cancer reminds us that in order to process our emotions we must avoid holding them in & instead feel them so they can move on.
When we don’t allow ourselves to be in-tune with our emotions, our souls become prisoners of them. Cancer reclaims its emotional independence & autonomy by granting itself the freedom of feeling every. Single. Thing.
Even if you are not born during Cancer season, you will likely still feel Cancer influence. Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) may feel more emotionally turbulent or intuitive than usual, and fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) may exhibit bigger displays of passion. Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn) will be pushed outside of their stoic comfort zone & forced to feel everything, which might make them feel a bit unstable. Air signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius) will be challenged to step out of their minds & into their hearts when they meet watery Cancer.
Unspoken words will be exchanged. Feelings will be felt. Traumas will be processed. Cancer season will be healing to new wounds & old, both on an individual & collective level. This is exactly what the world needs right now.
Buckle up, because we’ll be on an emotional ride for the next few weeks. Remember, emotions are energy in motion. Let it move.
