Happy Solstice!! The Sun in Cancer from June 20 to July 22
The Summer Solstice, longest day of the year, the kickoff to summer.
As the Sun moves into Cancer, sign of emotion, family, and self-love. It’s time to follow our hearts, solidify our center, and live fully from a place of nourishment. The shadow is hiding, over-emotionalizing situations, regression, and neediness. It’s the season to get back in touch with who we really are on the inside.
The Sun in Cancer natives have a strong survival instinct. They are protective of those they care about, as well as of themselves. They are often hesitant about airing their laundry with the rest of the world, and are often caught up in sentiment.
Cancers have a reputation for being moody, and overly sensitive, although this aspect is most evident when the Moon is in Cancer. Cancer needs a foundation. They resist change to an extent, and concern themselves about being secure and safe in most everything they do.

“It’s all about the mind set”
