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 – 28th June- 11th July 2022

Mercury will move into Cancer 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.
