begins on the Summer Solstice this year on June 20th. The Moon
rules this sensitive sign and expresses herself in all her glory.
As the Moon moves through the signs these hardy souls express
themselves differently. This is also the longest day of the
year. The Solstice points in the year mark the move from the
reaching male energy, Gemini to the feminine energy, Cancer
... Or, as some people call it, moving from outside to indoors.
Cancer pulls all of us into the womb and therefore
we can all get some needed nurturing. Cancer’s
are all moms and all children. This sign, more than
the others, pulls us back into our awareness of our
mothers and our heritage. The Moon rules our ancestors
and as such we can easily tap into that energy as
the Moon changes signs.
thing about Cancer is that they are quite moody and
needy at times. Sometimes they just can’t get
enough of food, their children, or friends. They have
an insatiable appetite for certain things. They really
want to be of service to those special people that
they consider their responsibility. They love to nurture
and care for the needs of others.
identifies with the need for home and family, and a safe environment.
This Moon-ruled sign whose symbol is the crab that lives in
the sea and creeps out at times to walk on the beach. Cancer
is in charge of the menstrual cycle in women, the ties of
the ocean, and the growing cycle in nature.
loving souls have great memories as far as their own personal
lives are concerned. They never forget a hurt to anyone in
their lives that they love, or to themselves. They love little
boxes as well. Don’t know where that fits, but it is
true. Their hard shell protects their soft belly. They need
to let go of things or their homes look like a garage sale.
intuition is profound as they feel what is going on outside
their control. They rebel against anything they feel as a
threat to their safety. This sign also rules the breasts as
well as the stomach. The stomach is where they feel their
gut feelings and they readily respond to them. Cancer loves
to do for others but really expect a return on their investment,
and if no one shows up then they feel taken advantage of.
There is a secret accounting taking place with all Cancer's
and they in turn get huffy and moody if the reciprocation
is not shown.
This sign is quite magical in their qualities and can manifest
wonders in their lives if they just step out of themselves
and enjoy the magic.

June 26th brings us to a Uranus retrograde
jumping out of windows … just kidding. Uranus allows us
to join with our reckless self and during the retrograde cycle
we can see where we foolishly jumped into situations or relationships
with reckless abandon. Uranus retrograde also brings us to see
what we didn’t accomplish since last December. It also
brings us many unexpected changes.
