Are you ready to be in your feels, my friends?! Beginning on the Summer Solstice, the sun beams into Cancer, our deeply emotional, intuitive and healing sign. From June 21-July 22, we are traversing the season of house and home, and tuning into what it is we really need to feel safe, what sustains us, and how we can approach + embody these traits for our absolute growth.
Represented by the crab, Cancer reminds us that our home is in our body, and that it’s important to keep ourselves nourished wherever we may roam — whether in water or on dry land. Here are some ritual tools + practices to connect to our tender-hearted sign.
Herbs + Essence:
- Bay Leaf
- Leopard Jasper
- Create an altar or practice for the moon. Mantra, salutations, offering poppy or anise, adorning in moonstone or selenite.
- Work with The Chariot Major Arcana/Archetype to access all that you have experienced + gained wisdom from, to prepare for your personal journey of transformation.
- Tap into the sacred essence of water — as an offering on your altar, crafting a ritual bath or foot soak, even creating moon water — to deepen your connection with the intuitive healing power of this sign.
- Feel your feelings. Find nourishing ways to express your emotions through journaling, therapy, or even hosting a sacred sharing circle.
Our Cardinal Water sign is ruled by the Moon, offering deep wisdom into where we’ve been, profound awareness of where we are, and illuminating insight into where we’re going. There is much to discover when we access the cosmic knowledge that our bodies hold, when we allow ourselves to feel what arises, and let it move through without judgment. This is the season to shower ourselves with authentic expressions of self love + tending to our sensitive side with care, offering support + encouragement to take aligned action toward our intentions.
If you’d like to explore any of these rituals or deepen your own embodied practice, feel free to reach out!
Happy Cancer Season, sweet ones.
From my radiant heart,
