Life takes a sentimental turn when the Sun is in Cancer, the zodiac sign associated with home, family, and feelings. Cancer coincides with the Summer Solstice, the official start of summer in the Northern Hemisphere. This is a time when we’ll all celebrate the joy, light, and blessings that summer brings.
Cancer is ruled by the Moon, the planet of emotions and inner self. This reminds us of the deeply sensitive nature of this sign. When the Sun moves through this sign, we’re encouraged to listen to our feelings and respond to them in a constructive matter.
When the Sun is in Cancer
Life gets a lot more sentimental when the Sun moves into cozy Cancer! Here’s how to make the most of life during this transit:
WHAT TO DO:
Nest. Cancer loves spending time with family and close friends. Cook dinner together, work on a craft project, or cuddle up on the couch with a good movie during this transit.
WHAT TO SAY:
“I love you.” These three little words sound sweetest while the Sun is shining in Cancer and tender emotions are felt universally. If you’ve been waiting to say it to someone, this is your golden opportunity!
WHERE TO GO:
Nowhere. Cancer craves security, so stick close to home and enjoy summertime in your own backyard. Even better, host a big barbecue to make your friends and family feel loved.
WHAT TO WEAR:
Jammies. Cancer loves getting comfy, but if you must get dressed, choose Cancerian colors like white or yellow, and decorate yourself with the Crab’s signature pearls or silver jewelry.
WHAT TO BUY:
A kitten. Not only does the Sun move into Cancer during June, National Cat Month, but Cancer is also the most nurturing sign. Adopt a sweet little kitty and feel the love of being a pet parent.
WHAT TO WATCH OUT FOR:
Mood swings. Cancer is an emotional sign, so while there are many highs during this time, the extra sensitivity you’re feeling may bring on a bad mood — fast. This is why you’d be wise to stay home and cuddle up with your loved ones while the Sun is in Cancer.
WHAT TO LOOK FORWARD TO:
Intimacy. Sun in Cancer is a beautiful, tender, and sentimental time to enjoy with all your heart. Feel the feelings and love the love — it only gets this sweet once a year.
If you were born with the Sun in Cancer
The Sun in Astrology influences the way we express ourselves and our overall personalities. Having your Sun in Cancer means that you have a need to connect with others on an emotional level. Your tenderness isn’t immediately obvious since your hard outer shell protects your soft internal world.
Your sign is closely connected to the mother and her role as nurturer and protector. A homebody at heart, family and tradition are incredibly important to you. Someone is much more likely to find you spending quiet nights in with your loved ones than out on the town.
As a Water sign, your intuition is off the charts! It’s nearly impossible to get anything past you since you have a special knack for reading people and situations. You often make decisions based on your instinct or gut feelings because they have almost never led you astray.
Emotions run deep with you, and you expect emotional depth and security in your relationships. This doesn’t mean you are one to give your heart away very easily. In fact, it’s only after someone has earned your trust that you allow yourself to fall in love. Your partners soon realize it was worth the wait — you are an intense and passionate lover who gives everything you have to your relationships.
As a Crab, your need for financial security is what drives your ambition. You aren’t one to crave the professional limelight, and yet you manage to be a standout star for your perseverance and ability to handle responsibility with ease. Your shrewd mind and powers of observation help you see the little things that others might miss. If you can avoid getting tangled up in emotion, you will easily climb the ladder of success.
You are all about quality, and not quantity, when it comes to those you surround yourself with. While you may limit the number of friends you have, there is no shortage of loyalty and support that you give to them. When people come to you with a problem, not only will you listen, but you’re the first person to offer help. You have a selfless approach to friendship, and a willingness to do anything for them. Your friends probably feel lucky to have someone like you in their life!
WHAT SETS YOU APART:
Nobody makes others feel loved quite like you do, Cancer! Your family and friends mean everything to you, and you’ll go above and beyond to make sure they know how much you care about them.
All that we are is the result of what we have thought. If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain follows him. If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought, happiness follows him, like a shadow that never leaves him.
A course of events that cannot be altered has been set in motion within this aspect. Accept whatever happens in the near future and do not waste your time fretting about it–you can do nothing.
This was a favorite charm in Egypt, worn in order to frustrate magicians, sorcerers and evil wishers from bewitching the wearer and stealing the soul from the heart; for it was the general belief that if the soul left the heart, the body would soon fade away and perish. The ancient Egyptians also believed that, after death, the heart was taken, in the underworld, and weighed against the symbols of the law; if found perfect, it was restored to the body, which at once came to life again and enjoyed everlasting felicity.
Porcupine has appeared in your reading today to bring a message of innocence and trust. Although Porcupine can throw quills when cornered, he is gentle, loving, and non-aggressive. Is there an area of your life that need Porcupine energy? Have you lost the ability to trust??

New ventures may prove unfruitful. Adversity may be experienced in all or any arena of life.

The Judgment card indicates that you’ve had some sexual hang-ups in the past, but you’re working toward getting over them. This is a period of transition, and although you’re doing the work, you may not be getting the exact results you desire. Forgive yourself for past missteps in order to take a sexual step forward today. Being afraid to express your true erotic self can even effect other areas of your life, so getting beyond your sexual inhibitions translates into a happier overall existence.
You deserve a partnership that deepens as you get to know each other. Wait for the person who has risen above commitment immaturity if commitment is your desire. The Fool reminds us that dating someone is not a mistake. It is falling in love and marrying them if it is not right. If your long-term relationship is encountering a difficult patch, now is the time to work together to rebuild.
Does the Tarot seems intimidating? Have you had a fear of getting readings? Unsure of what the Tarot does? Brigit Esselmont, founder of BiddyTarot.com, will help you demystify Tarot, busting some of the biggest myths about reading Tarot cards…
Myth 1: You have to be psychic to read Tarot
Many people will have you believe that you have to be psychic to read Tarot. That is, to be a good Tarot reader, you have to have some sort of supernatural power that allows you to see into the future, know what people are thinking, or receive messages from the spirit world.
The truth is: You don’t have to be psychic to be a good Tarot reader. In fact, anyone can learn to read Tarot — including you. All you need to do is say yes to your intuition.
We are all intuitive beings. Every one of us. But many people have shut down their intuition, refusing to listen to their inner voice. They downplay the intuitive flashes they get and pass them off as a silly feeling that means nothing. Instead, say “yes” to those random, unexplainable messages you might receive that help you to navigate your life’s path. Say “yes” to going with your heart, not just your head.
Myth 2: Tarot will tell you your future
This one isn’t completely a myth, but it isn’t exactly the whole truth either… Many people see the Tarot as a fortunetelling tool. And, not only that, they believe that whatever the Tarot says will happen in the future, will happen, no matter what. Some people are so afraid of having their cards read because they worry that if they do, something bad will happen as a result.
The truth is: Tarot can tell you about not just your future, but also your past and your present. Understanding the past helps you discover the key lessons you’ve learned along your path so that you can make better decisions in the future. And understanding the present helps you discover what’s happening for you right now.
The future is not set in stone. Yes, the Tarot can predict the future — but “predict” is the key word here. It means that the Tarot can show you where you are headed based on where you are now. Don’t like where you’re headed? Then you can make changes right now to reshape your future! It all comes down to your free will and your ability to make choices.
Long story short: Tarot helps you understand your past and present to enable you to make good, positive choices that will shape your future. The future is in your hands and it’s yours to create.
Myth 3: Tarot is mysterious and complex
Look up “Tarot reader” on the internet and you’ll be met with images of mysterious-looking women in bohemian clothes, peering into a crystal ball, foretelling the future. This is not an accurate representation of what a Tarot reader is really like!
The truth is: People from ALL walks of life read Tarot — office workers, teachers, coaches, therapists, lawyers, executives, nurses — you name it. Just ordinary, normal people who have learned how to use the Tarot cards to connect with their intuition and navigate life’s challenges.
Tarot doesn’t have to be mysterious and complex. Tarot can be simple, fun and easy to learn. Anyone can do it, including you!
So you want to explore Tarot, but you don’t know where to begin? You’re not alone. Many Tarot newbies find they are confused and intimidated when first learning the art of Tarot cards. With so many cards featuring such complex illustrations and mysterious interpretations, it’s not uncommon for beginners to feel a little frustrated. How does it work, and what the heck does it all mean? We’re here to help.
What is Tarot?
Like many forms of divination, Tarot cards are a tool to help you tap into your own intuition and the wisdom of the universal energy that guides your life. Tarot, which has origins in 14th century Europe, is not a form of fortune telling. It’s more like a mirror that reflects what is happening in your life at the moment. Tarot is able to tap into hidden thoughts, feelings and truths and bring them to the surface so you can use that information to make decisions about life, love, emotions, health, career and more.
About Tarot card decks
Most Tarot card decks consist of 78 Tarot cards broken into a Major Arcana (22 cards) and a Minor Arcana (56 cards). The Major Arcana cards typically represent significant life events on a large scale, while the Minor Arcana cards deal with day-to-day life. The Minor Arcana includes four “suits” that each has a theme. Each suit is numbered one through 10, with four additional Court cards (Page, Knight, Queen and King).
Pentacles — Also referred to as “Disks” or “Coins,” cards in the Pentacles suitpertain to things in the material and physical world. Pentacles cards often indicate money matters, career and success, but they also can indicate levels of emotional and spiritual prosperity, too.
Wands — Sometimes called “Staffs,” the suit of Wands is more spiritual and is used to illustrate the energy of movement, growth and new beginnings. Wands represent ideas and innovation. They are often related to your career or your sense of purpose in the world, but they can deliver strong love messages, too.
Cups — The suit of Cups is connected to our emotions and to our relationships, and to matters of the soul. Cups cards can reveal how we truly feel — and how others truly feel about us. They also speak of our emotional well-being.
Swords — The Swords cards are most associated with conflict and strife, which can refer to internal conflict, as well. Swords cut to the heart of a matter, revealing our greatest challenges. They can tell of illness, heartbreak, war, loss and death, but they can also reveal truths we need to face in order to move forward, which ultimately is a positive thing.
About Tarot spreads
Tarot cards are shuffled and laid out in any number of Tarot spreads. The best known spread is the Celtic Cross, but there are countless other Tarot spreads you can choose depending on what type of question you want to ask and how many cards you wish to draw. If you want to start out very simply, you can draw just one card about a specific person or situation. In fact, your question doesn’t even need to be a question! It’s called an “open reading” when you simply think about a person or situation instead of asking a direct question — the cards will still provide insight.
Each position in a Tarot spread has its own significant meaning, just as every card has its own meaning. For example, your spread may feature positions for “past,” “present” and “future,” or for “possible outcome,” so it’s important to pay attention to the position in which each card turns up. A card speaking of heartbreak would surely mean something different if it turned up in the past instead of the future, right?
Laying out your Tarot cards
Once you’ve determined your Tarot spread, it’s customary to shuffle all 78 cards in the Tarot deck and cut the cards as many times as you like while thinking about your question. This allows your energy to interact with the energy of the cards to achieve the best results. It also helps if you do your reading in a peaceful and relaxed environment.
When you are done shuffling and feel the moment is right, speak your question out loud, then pull your first card from anywhere in the deck and lay it on the first position of your spread in the upright position. Do the same for the remaining cards until every card is in place. Now comes the hardest (and most fun!) part — figuring out how to interpret your Tarot reading.
How to read Tarot cards
Tarot beginners will likely need to refer to Tarot.com or to a Tarot reference book to find the meaning of each card in their spread. The illustrations on each card depict archetypes of the human experience, but they can also take on personal meaning for you.
Let’s take The Fool card, for example. This card features a happy young man gazing into the distance. He’s about to step off a cliff into the unknown as the Sun rises behind him, and he has a small knapsack of supplies. Now think about how this literal description of The Fool might be translated into an insightful message. The classic interpretation is that of a person at the beginning of something new — perhaps a new relationship or a life-changing adventure — and they should be feeling positive about it because they have everything they need to succeed.
See, doesn’t that make sense? Now you try. Begin by studying each card and the position it is in, write down notes about how the card makes you think and feel based on its imagery and symbolism, then look up the classic meaning and make a note about that, too. Once you have done this for all the cards in your spread, you’ll start to see a story developing — a story that’s all about you!
At the birth of Tarot, even a gifted healer who was not an ordained clergyman was considered to be in league with The Devil! For obvious reasons, the line between fooling the eye with sleight of hand and charging the world with magical will, was not clearly differentiated in the early Tarot cards.
Waite’s image of The Magician as the solitary ritualist communing with the spirits of the elements — with its formal arrangement of symbols — is a token of the freedom we have in modern times to declare our spiritual politics without fear of reprisal. The older cards were never so explicit about what The Magician was doing. It’s best to keep your imagination open with this card. Visualize yourself manifesting something unique, guided by evolutionary forces that emerge spontaneously from within your soul.
