Cancer Season 2019
Get ready for a deep dive into the water of our emotions, friends – Cancer Season arrives on June 21st.
Ruled by the Moon, the astrological archetype of Cancer is a cardinal water sign that asks us to get back in touch with the collective heart and cultivate our emotional awareness.
Our society has not given emotions a very good rep, nor has it encouraged us to utilize the wisdom of emotions as a powerful tool for personal and societal growth. Most people have been taught to either sweep all of their emotions under the rug and never acknowledge them, or to get so caught up in their emotions that they become a dangerous and reactionary aspect of their personal identities.
But emotions are a portal – a doorway into an immense depth of wisdom and insights about how we each uniquely perceive the world, and the way in which we relate to and experience life, community, and connectedness. If embraced with intention, compassion, and a healthy balance of non-attachment and observation, our emotions become the keys to unlocking our deepest desires, releasing our limiting beliefs, and deconditioning from our subconscious societal programmings.
Represented by the crab, the energy of Cancer teaches us how to embrace our vulnerable nature while also keeping ourselves safe and protected – a hard shell of boundaries guarding the soft magic of our hearts. And as the ruler of the family-oriented and nurturing 4th house, Cancer asks us to return Home to the love that unifies us all, and asks us to ride the wave of vulnerability that has the power to heal the world.
