On the summer solstice (June 21st), the sun moved from Gemini into protective, sensitive Cancer, where it will journey to July 22nd. During this time, we look for quality and safety in what we create and surround ourselves with. Interest may shift from the universal to more personal themes – we are emotionally sensitive, and family/home are a focus during this month.
“With sun in Cancer, there is an emphasis on family values and on memory; the traditions of the past. Even though nature beckons, we are family rather than individually oriented at this time. The ritual of summer barbecue brings everyone together. There is softness and a nurturing quality to our approach now that cements the ties of kinship and of individual security within the family circle.”
Cancer sun provides a prime time for hanging out and connecting with family and friends over Father’s Day, the Fourth of July, or during summer vacation. It’s time to refuel and rejuvenate with this water sign before the intensity of the harvest cycle gets into full swing.
Tune into places in your life and business where you can create more comfort. Nurture yourself, your projects, your business, and those around you. Create an emotional safe space for what is tender, young, and growing in your life.
Apply liberal doses of love to every creation you are magnetizing into your life. Pouring love into your creation mix means also filling yourself with the pure sweet essence of water’s primary power. Only when your inner water is fully nourished by love and appreciation can you magnetize your dreams from the most grace-filled place. This window is the perfect opportunity to fill yourself to overflowing.
While you are at it, reflect on your creations and see if they need any other element for an abundant ripening. As you align your dreams and desires with the unified field of all the elements (Earth, Water, Air, Fire, with Spirit flowing through all) sometimes an element needs to be strengthened. Perhaps an aspect of your mental beliefs or your old emotional program needs to be cleared for your creations to flourish. Just like growing a garden in your yard, sometimes rocks and roots need to be removed, or fertilizer, water, or more sun need to be added so that your flowers and veggies may thrive.
Choose the one or two ideas you need most to work with, then focus on those. Intentions function best when there are only one or two to concentrate on in any cycle.
