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-agressive.

Best things to focus on during Cancer Season:

Taking 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 – 6th – 29th July 2022

Mercury will move into Cancer in mid-July and will bring a sentimental, sensitive and intuitive approach to communications.

The best way to harness the Mercury in Cancer energy 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 and nurturing communication style.

Venus – 18th July-11th August 2022

Venus has already moved into Cancer. Venus in Cancer brings an empathic and protective approach to relationships and going after what you want.

It is a great time to focus on nurturing those relationships that are important to you and showing your most important people that you care.

In business, your clients will love it when you go the extra mile to take care of them and nurture them as well as your intuitive or psychic hits of insight.
