Tomorrow, June 21st at approximately 10:58am EDT, we kick off the Summer Solstice with Cancer season, a cardinal water sign. When the Sun, which rules our core essence, vitality, and ego, transits the sign of Cancer, the qualities of emotions, intuition, home, and family come to the forefront.

Ruled by the Moon, Cancer energy encourages us to trust our emotions to carry us to the destination most aligned with our values and assists us in creating environments that support our needs.

This year, Cancer season starts on the same day Lilith and Mars conjunct in the sign of Leo. When the planet of action and energy combines with the archetype of the wild feminine, it encourages you to embrace your authenticity and pursue your passions without fear or inhibition. However, this conjunction also has the potential to manifest as  the desire to break free from societal norms.

Over the first week of Cancer season, we’ll experience a trine to the South Node in Scorpio as well as Saturn retrograde in Pisces, both tying into the themes of embracing your emotional wounds and using it as a source of wisdom to allow for a balanced and stable approach to personal development and achieving your goals.

In a nutshell, this is a season of diving into what you require to feel safe and secure in order to gain clarity on how to construct the world of your dreams around your needs.
