Cancer season means it's time to get cozy.
When the sun is in Cancer, it highlights our sense of safety and security. What makes us feel safe and taken care of? For many people, this can bring out family ties (or drama) and is an excellent time to work on deep-seated ancestral or childhood trauma. It's also a great time to strengthen the family bonds you have now, whether they are biological or chosen. Sometimes when the sun is in Cancer, it can feel like riding an emotional roller coaster, as sensitivities run high. If you find yourself feeling extra prickly or prone to passive aggression, indulging in "me time" or self-care is the best antidote to this placement.

Sun in Cancer Personality
If you lack a "mom friend," seek out a Cancer! Ruled by the moon, those born in the season of the Crab nurture by nature. Few things matter more for Cancers than their loved ones. However, they are a sensitive bunch who retreat into their protective shells when the world overwhelms them.
The past holds a big piece of Cancers' hearts. Therefore, they maintain a solid connection to their family and roots. Unlike their sister Capricorn, Cancers welcome emotional depth and closeness. Very few zodiac signs equal Cancer in their intuition and ability to give comfort.
Cancer Queen Ariana Grande best defined the Crab's shadow side when she sang, "I can be needy." Unsurprisingly, the zodiac's "mom friend" can (s)mother, drowning their loved ones in tidal waves of emotion—or worse, entirely emotionally withdrawing. Alas, Crabs can be very crabby creatures.
