The iconic crab of Cancer helps us shape our home life, and emotions.
Cancer normally rules the 4th house of stability, nurturing, parenting and TLC. Cancer is a Cardinal Water sign, meaning that this sign starts a season or a turning point of a temporal season.
When the Sun moves into the sign of Cancer, it marks the start of Summer with the celebration of Summer Solstice. Cancer can often be represented by a Turtle as well, symbolizing carrying your home wherever you go.
Your relationship with community is in a long process of being shaken up and freed up. It is challenging and remaking how you know and claim your place in the ecosystems around you.
The beginning of the year comes in with another round of work in the long healing of Pluto opposing Cancer, digging deep in your personal relationships since 2008.
It’s been a long road and you’re not at the end of it, but you will be coming out freer, lighter, more alive. It’s not easy to be remade in every way that you love.
The dark will whisper its truths loud enough to be heard. Be with those connections that your body signals an unreserved “yes” to, human or otherwise. Experiment with how you connect with all of life so that you can be fully at home in your own skin, making that the measure of how you are weathering these years of change.
It’s not about the deeply rooted, established home for you just now, though you may have it, though you may love to seek and make it. What frees you comes from outside your usual sphere; what heals you happens in collaboration; what opens your deep oceans of dreaming is found beyond your own door.
You can be tiny, defined by your shell—or you can be the whole ocean.

As Jupiter and Neptune conjunct in Pisces, exact in April, echoing throughout 2022, they challenge us to use our sensitivity, vision, and imagination to open a visionary portal, while at the same time staying grounded enough to not get lost, to stay present and use this vision wisely.
Cancer: 2022 beckons you out of your comfort zone to explore the larger world to travel, learn or investigate your sense of global citizenship. Manifest your spiritual beliefs within worldly action.
Be willing to learn by unusual means and help all of us envision a better life; this can create interesting work developments in 2023.

Come home. Cardinal Water Cancer calls us to our chosen family, tribe, and homeland. Like the burgeoning summer plants, it's time to nourish our roots, our temple, whatever feeds our soul and world.
The mood is sensitive, deep, security-seeking, warmhearted; let's bring objectivity.
You're an emotional leader; you can teach us to nourish ourselves and others, though you'll need to learn self-care and to believe in your own enduring strength.
Caring, creative, protective and self-protective, you swim best in the depths.

By Day: the Moon's sign sets the emotional tone. Those Born Under: Our natal Moon sign describes what makes us feel at home, how we process emotion, and how we handle our daily life.
Their sensitivity needs protection so they can keep their hearts well-guarded. They can be caring leaders once they learn to believe in themselves.
Our Natal Moon sign describes what makes us feel at home, how we process emotion, and how we handle our daily life.
The vibe is moody, protective, cranky and defensive if we feel pushed but cozy, nurturing, and empathic where we feel safe.
What is a rising sign you ask? The rising sign or ascendant is the sign that was present on the horizon at the time of your birth. It sits similarly on your birth chart on this horizon line, or equatorial line in your chart on the left or east side of your chart.
Do calculate your rising sign, you'll need to know the exact time of your birth, once you know along with your geographic location, you can visit many sites and receive a free birth chart, here is one of our staff favorites.
Your sun sign represents your core personality, and the qualities of our outward shining self. Your moon sign reflects qualities of your inner core self, or emotional self.
Rising sign is your outlook on the world and first impression you give to others.
Rising sign also dictates where the Astrological Houses lay within your chart.
The Houses (twelve pie shaped sections) of our personal birth chart attend to all areas of our life. Each house represents a basic facet of human experience from birth to death. The placement of each house in your natal chart is dependent on your rising sign
Cancer risings are sensitive and deep. You make sense of the world around you with your intuition and emotions. You tend to crawl back into your shell if attacked or provoked, yet you come out strong with deep insight into a situation if given time to process.
Cancers thrive in a home environment, this can be a physical place or a safety net they take with them. They have a strong sense for business and care for those who they work for and with.
This symbol also reflects the "yin-yang symbol and the ebb and flow of the tides. This watersy sign works with us to discover our our own emotions, needs and instincts. A very intrinsic and sensitive sign.
Welcome to Summer Solstice! Cancer marks the beginning of Summer and celebrations! It's a time of gathering, making food and basking in the sunshine.
The heat of the sun drives us toward the cool refreshing rivers, lakes and oceans of the land for reprieve. Plants start to bear fruit and our gardens need extra care during this time. Soil dries out quickly, our plants crave extra water to carry the weight of their lush fruits. Animals have already mated and are setting up the foundation for a safe homespace to give birth or raise their young.
In many parts of the world, the transition into Cancer season also marks the start of monsoons and heavy rains. We see the waves of cancer reflected in our own emotions and watch them ripple around the world.
Cancer rules "High Noon" or early afternoon in our daily cycle.
This is the time to take care of personal matters and perhaps take a break or “siesta” from work to nurture ourselves and replenish our energy with lunch and some water.
Cancer is all about TLC and nurturing. Take this time to check in with your body and emotions, are you feeling tired, annoyed or energized and ambitious? Note what your body is craving and listen to it!
The breasts and chest are only natural for the mothering sign of the zodiac to rule over! They give life source to our young, and provide valuable nutrients for growing bodies.
The pericardium wraps our heart in a protective fluid filled sack. Cancer also gives us that primal instinctive sense of protecting the things we care for and love, our bodies have created Cancerian spaces of protection and love for some of our most vital organs.
The bronchial tubes connects Gemini (lungs) to Cancer in the body. The bronchial tubes even seem to resemble the rivers and streams that Cancer so often reminds us of!
The planets within our solar system have a specific part to play in the complete knowledge of "The Self." Planets represent different aspects of our self-journey or even our personality.
They're characteristics range from our soul purpose (sun), how we think or love (Mercury, Venus) how we like to learn (Jupiter) our limitations (Saturn), and much more! Please visit our blog "Journey into Astrology" if you would like to know more about Planets and how to integrate them into your daily astrology practice.
They will be highly sensitive along with protective. For example if your Mercury falls under Cancer, the manners in how you communicate, language and thoughts will be connected to how you feel.
Maybe you'll notice small nuances better than others and can help create space in a conversation for the soft spoken.

“The Houses (twelve pie shaped sections) of our personal birth chart attend to all areas of our life. Each house represents a basic facet of human experience from birth to death.”
The placement of each house in your natal chart is dependent on your rising sign. A person with an Aries rising has what is called a “natural chart”. A rising sign is the sign ascending on the eastern horizon on the time of your birth, it can be calculated using a rising sign calculator here!
The fourth house is the first house in the bottom half of a new quadrant. This quadrant contains houses 4,5,6 of Home, Creative expression and Health. This quadrant represents the foundation of our home life, or personal space.
Cancer of course, rules the house of Home and Family. This house concerns developing centered rootedness. We create home as a personal base of operation, as well as the psycho-spiritual home we carry within. Nurture deeper emotional expression with attention to family of origin.
The archetype associated with the Moon is the great or divine mother, reflected in countless myths throughout the ages (examples: Phoebe, Selene, Artemis, Luna, Isis, Mama Quilla & Mawu)
The Moon represents our capacity to feel or empathize with those around us and within our own soul as well. It awakens our intuitive and emotional body.
