Cancer Season

Remembrance of things past is not necessarily the remembrance of things as they were.

Cancer season is here folks, the official start to summer! Let's get one thing clear, something about this one is going down in the memory banks. Memory is tied in deeply with the sign of Cancer. But memories are never really as crystal clear as they seem in the moment they surface into our mind's eye now are they? As one of if not the most psychic and intuitive sign of the zodiac, Cancer is all about what we dream deep down inside manifesting into our daily life. In what ways have you allowed you imagination to take your power from a situation in your current life? This June/July/August is going to have a HUGE focus on sorting out our feelings, letting go of what no longer serves, and voicing ourselves boldly and proudly. 

A huge theme of Cancer energy is nostalgia. When you think about the timing of Cancer season, it makes total sense. Summertime in the states is rife with activities to get nostalgic about. Sleepovers, fireworks, those movies that seem to always play on repeat during summer vacation (The Mummy!), summer romances, grass stains on knees, the list goes on.

It's human nature to glorify the good old days, even when they weren't really all that great to begin with. This Cancer season is going to be an invitation to dive into our feelings and sort out what it is about our pasts that is still haunting us to this day. Often times we let nostalgia color our current perception too much without even realizing what we're doing. 

I will be doing more timely blog posts about the busy time we're about to have this summer.  Below are some important dates for moon and planetary ingresses as well as some hot and happenin' aspects until Leo season.
