Have you ever heard people refer to “Cancer Season” but not been sure what it means?

Well, Cancer season starts when the sun moves into Cancer and a number of other personal planets join it during the month-long transit of the sun through Cancer.

Cancer is a water sign and brings a nurturing and sensitive energy but it can also be over-protective, defensive, and passive-aggressive.

Best things to focus on during Cancer Season:

Take a little time out to tune into your intuition, fill up your cup, and make sure you are aligned to the goals you set, earthed, and communicated over the last 3 months.

Personal Planets in Cancer:

Mercury -18th June- 2nd July 2024

Mercury has moved into Cancer and brings a sentimental, sensitive, and intuitive approach to communications.

The best way to harness Mercury’s energy in Cancer is to tune into your feelings but allow them to settle before communicating them; otherwise, you may find yourself being overly emotional in the moment.

It’s a great time to connect with clients, especially if you are a coach or other nurturing professional, as you can harness an intuitive, sincere and nurturing communication style.
