This Thursday, June 21, marks the beginning of Cancer season (as well as the summer solstice, the longest day of the year and the first official day of summer). Cancers are known for being emotional homebodies who are ruled by the moon. They can be passionate and domestic, and they are super lovable towards the people they care about most. But Cancers can also be very moody, and they are also known to be a bit of a gossip. Cancer season means there is a different energy in the air, different from the vibe from Gemini season. Each sign can expect to notice something different, whether those effects are obvious or more subtle. So what does Cancer season mean for you, based on your zodiac sign? It could be a super emotional month for everyone.
According to Astrology.com, "Those born under this sign are 'roots' kinds of people, and take great pleasure in the comforts of home and family. Cancers are maternal, domestic and love to nurture others." It's not all easy-going, though — Cancers have another side as well: "These folks are tenacious and strong-willed and like to get their way. If their well-documented kindness and gentleness doesn’t do the trick, however, they’re not above using emotional manipulation to make things happen."
Cancer season means you're probably going to feel more moody than usual, which could be slightly different for everyone. Maybe you'll find that you're crying more often. Maybe you'll end up feeling more dreamy and intuitive. Maybe you'll feel more irritable. Whatever the case, it never hurts to know what you're about to get yourself into.
