It’s All Happening in Cancer! Not only is it the Summer Solstice today, 21st June, but Mercury enters Cancer today, the Sun enters Cancer tomorrow and there is a New Moon in Cancer on Saturday! It’s All Happening in Cancer!

Mercury Enters Cancer

With Mercury in Cancer, expect communications to reflect the caring, nurturing and hugely empathetic nature of the Cancerian energy. Aim to be as understanding as possible in your thought processes and your actions. Use your highly intuitive antennae to link your thinking with the words that you use to communicate the action you require and the results that you need in order for you to feel safe and secure.

With the Sun entering Cancer tomorrow, 22nd June, we meet the fourth sign of the zodiac and the first of the Water signs with its symbol the Crab. The Cancer energy has the vulnerable, instinctual and emotional influence of Water with a high degree of sensitivity, empathy and intuition. With a wonderful imagination and a deep level of understanding, this energy absorbs other peoples pain as if it were their own, taking things personally and reflecting a great deal on their experiences.

Cancer is ruled by the Moon which puts the Cancer energy in touch with basic survival instincts and is emotionally linked to the phases of the Moon – the New, Waxing, Full and Waning cycle. It is a nurturing, protective and nourishing energy, needing safety, security and a feeling of wellbeing in order to function properly. It is an energy linked to its ancestry with a great interest in history.

The Cancer energy needs to be needed. It is highly creative, mystical and vulnerable and is possessive of emotional experiences and people. This sign can be Crabby and will approach things sideways, being easily hurt and with a huge fear of rejection – so a bolt hole is absolutely essential.

New Moon in Cancer

It’s All Happening in Cancer! Following the Sun entering the zodiac sign of Cancer, there is a New Moon in Cancer on Saturday 24th June. With the New Moon comes fresh beginnings and a new start. It’s time to plan for the weeks ahead using the influence of this wonderful zodiac sign. In pragmatic astrology Cancer is known as the midwife of the zodiac – giving birth to highly creative and intuitive projects always in touch with the needs of others.

There are a few things to remember as you plan ahead: Learn to let go of emotional experiences – don’t wallow, allow yourself to move on; develop your independence and become more emotionally self-sufficient and protect yourself.
