Your Guide to Cancer Season 2022
Tomorrow, June 21st, is both the Summer Solstice and the first day of this year's Cancer Season. While Cancer's predecessor, Gemini, invites fun and airy energy during its time of the year, this upcoming season focuses on our emotions and serves as a time of reflection. Lasting from June 21st to July 22nd, Cancer season will be a gentle reminder to slow things down, relax, and take time for yourself. Belonging to the 4th house, this time of the year is also useful to center others, by dedicating quality time with them or strengthening these relationships in general.
In order to balance the more tumultuous emotions that may come up this month, Amethyst can serve as an emotional stabilizer in your life. The high frequencies of this stone will soothe your nerves and help you remain calm.

While Moss Agate aids emotional blockages, Rose Quartz reminds you of the love you need to give to yourself and receive from others. Any emotional turmoil that you may be dealing with this season can be remedied by Rose Quartz providing you with strong, loving energy.
