Cancer Season features the summer solstice, which must be the most welcomed astronomical high-point of the year. The Sun is at its zenith in the sky on this longest day of the year. Every year at around June 21, the Sun hits the astrological point of 0º Cancer, signalling the first official day of Summer.
So Cancerians should carry this ‘shiny happy people’ energy around with them. Or do they…? After all, the moody Moon rules Cancer, not the Sun! Cancer has a full moon type of energy where the Sun illuminates the Moon to its brightest and whitest. Cancer is also a cardinal sign, so it is a natural leader and surprising bossy. Cardinal Cancer is the Queen Bee and matriarch. A full moon on steroids if you like. The bright Sun is cheerful, but it can also burn.
