Sun Enters Cancer: Homecoming

Every year on the Summer Solstice, the Sun enters the deep and nurturing waters of Cancer, inviting us all to come home to ourselves once again. In the Northern Hemisphere, we welcome the longest day of the year and also the warmest season -- when we can go barefoot, take time off of work and be with our families. If we're close enough, we head straight for the beach -- the domain of Cancer's symbol, the Crab. On Saturday, June 21, the summer of 2014 officially begins.

Cancer is perhaps the most emotionally sensitive sign of them all -- even more than the other Water signs, Scorpio and Pisces. Cancer is ruled by the Moon and, by virtue of the lunar cycles, its energy constantly vacillates.

Cancer's shell is there for protection -- it doesn't have a stinger like the Scorpion, nor the ability to swim in two directions at once, like the double fish of Pisces. Unlike the other Water signs, Cancer rarely traffics in emotional blackmail.

Instead, Cancer’s modus operandi is walking sideways or hiding out inside its shell for protection. Think of Cancer's infamous moodiness like waves on the beach, rising and falling with the tide, sometimes breaking high and fierce, and sometimes landing with a faint whimper.

When the Summer Solstice arrives on June 21 and invites us into Cancer's home for the next 30 days, we must embrace this inner terrain, the part of us that we generally keep on lockdown, hidden within our shell. We're coming home to our real selves, the part of us shaped by early childhood experiences and parental ties.

Relationships with family can be tricky now, especially if you repress your feelings. Allow yourself to truly feel what’s coming up from deep within your psyche -- observe and embrace all your moods: the ups, downs and everything in-between.

In terms of your relationships, it’s vital to find a way to communicate without being hysterical. If something really deep and transformational comes up for you during Cancer season, take a moment to find some clarity and emotional stability before you charge ahead with accusations or confrontations.

So cry, laugh, get angry, act like a lunatic if you must, but only share your feelings once you’ve done some analysis. And don’t forget to gaze at the Moon, preferably with your bare feet on the beach, surrounded by the people you love. Make this a month of major growth and healing -- and have some fun in the Sun!
