As we head into the summer season, we're also heading into a softer, more sensitive time, which is brought to us by the cosmos. Cancer season begins on June 21 and lasts until July 23, and it always brings about a lot of emotions for everyone, which can very easily be a good thing or a bad thing. As the first of the water signs, Cancers are ones who follow their hearts no matter what and are deeply intuitive. So what does this mean for you for the next month? Cancer season will affect many parts of your life, including your love life — and you're probably going to want to know what to expect.
This is a time when we're going to want to slow down a bit and just enjoy our lives, which is really a much-needed type of vibe after busy Gemini season.

Of course, the way Cancer season affects your love life depends on who you are and the traits that come along with your own sign. Here's a look at what Cancer season means for your love life, based on your zodiac sign:
