Not only does Cancer season mark the beginning of official summer, it’s also an essential energetic downshift from high energy Gemini. Cancer’s low-key, just-wanna-stay-home vibes are a welcome slow-down after the intensity of spring.  Cancer energy makes you attentive to your most basic needs and of those close to you. Doing things like revamping your space with plants and flowers, or inviting your neighbors over for dinner make
your inner Cancer happy. 

Give yourself permission to slow down and nurture yourself.
The Zodiac cycle repeats itself with the same pattern of elements:
Fire, Earth, Air, Water.

When the sun lands in a water sign, it signals the end of a cycle within a cycle, meaning time to rest and reflect. Water energy is reflective, flowing, emotional and dreamy. It needs time to retreat and replenish. Water seasons are often a time when something is gestating under the surface, getting ready to reveal itself as a spark, when the cycle turns to fire.
