How To Root in Love in Cancer Season

We’re on the precipice of Cancer season and ready to turn our attention inward after the dizzying days of Gemini season. The truth we seek is not out there in the external buzz and infinite combinations of the outer world, but rather in the quiet, subjective reality of our hearts, homes, and feelings.

The instructions for navigating Cancer season are rooted in our instinctive, personal recipes for comfort and nourishment. Paramount to honoring this healing reset is feeling around in the places our minds can’t explain, defend, or contrive. This can look like a good cry, a hug that transcends time and space, or the sounds and smells of our past that bubble into awareness, reminding us of the psychic scaffolding that soothes our emotional DNA.

Our human need for familiarity, first and foremost with our inner self, calls us back to family, old friends, and places that sew an inimitable thread of easy recognition and belonging. Finding something or someone to nurture faces less resistance as the heart’s soundtrack is turned up, drowning out habituated distractions if only for a few precious moments. Listen to that! The Sun in Cancer will be in the good company of Mercury and Venus — so connection with others and heart-to-heart conversations are inseparable from enjoying the season.

5 Actionable Steps in Cancer Season:

  1. Do one thing that uplevels the cozy factor of your home
  2. Revisit and honor something beautiful from your past 
  3. Make time to hang out with your soul family 
  4. Nurture something 
  5. Give and get hugs!
