Just So You Know, There's More To Love Than Finding Your Soulmate

Here’s Exactly Where To Focus This Cancer Season, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

Aries (March 21-April 19)

With your ruling planet of Mars in retrograde and the prevalence of Cancer’s water to cool your fire, this isn’t the best time to be doing anything bold or life-altering. Focus your attention at home, where emotions may be running high and constantly in flux through this season.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You may be feeling a bit off from your norm thanks to the moon’s impact on emotions. Focus your energy into ensuring there’s positive people surrounding you during this time. Check in with friends and family, make time for those who lift you up.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This is a time for you to slow your roll, relax, indulge yourself mindfully. Your mind may be running full speed, but it is okay to allow your thoughts to move into the slow lane for a bit. You’ll be glad that you did as your ruling planet of Mercury moves into retrograde later this month.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

This season is all about you…literally. Take time to focus on yourself: work on becoming self-aware, your personal growth, and your emotional needs. Do not allow aspects of yourself that you feel are “broken” to stay that way. Allow yourself to focus on healing and the positive within.

How You’ll Do Everything Based On Your Zodiac Sign includes an exhaustive analysis of each sign’s personality. You’ll learn which high school clique represents them (Pisces are the cool art kids), who would get eaten first in a scary movie (Gemini, obviously) to how each sign prefers to say ‘I love you’ (for Taurus, it’s with good food). Alternating between silly, sweet, and serious, this book is filled with deep dives into the mind of everyone whose birth chart you can get your hands on.

Leo (July 23-August 22)

You may be putting off career goals or changes, but this is the time to go all-in. Although emotions might be high during this time of Cancer, they will quickly change or subside, meaning it is the perfect time to do something big in your life. Don’t let your anxiety about the future stop you from being satisfied with your job in the now.

Virgo (August 23-September 22)

You’ll find it easy to know what to focus on during this time because it’s probably ending up right in your face: former relationships and old friends. Take time to reconnect with those you want in your life, but don’t allow the negative relationships a chance to move back into your life.

Libra (September 23-October 22)

Libras seem to be having unimaginable luck during this time of Cancer, so focus your energy wherever that luck is happening in your life. Don’t shy away from opportunities that will positively benefit you. Don’t downplay the amazing things happening right now. Embrace the wonderful and focus on making it even better.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)

It’s time to focus on forgiveness, Scorpio. There’s something you’ve been holding onto for too long: now is your time to let go. Mend bonds where possible, or at least be willing to move forward without resentment or regret. Life is too short to hold grudges.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)

Be careful: with the emotional rollercoaster of Cancer season, you are feeling the desire to travel or impulsively spend money. Keep a focus on your finances, trying to be creative where you can with what you spend. You might not be able to take an exotic vacation or buy a brand new car, but you may be able to find a thriftier way to indulge if you take the time to think it through.

Capricorn (December 22-January 19)

Use this time of emotional energy to focus on the most emotional relationships of all: your love life. Really allow yourself to connect with your partner or love interest during this time. Explore your feelings surrounding them, and maybe even make time to explore their body, too.

Aquarius (January 20-February 18)

They say that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, and you may be feeling that during this time. Try to focus on your actions and choices before they occur, thinking through all the possible outcomes. Don’t allow yourself to get bogged down by the moon and its torment on your feelings: stay reasonable and wise in your decisions.

Pisces (February 19-March 20)

You may find yourself feeling extra creative with the influx of emotions during this watery time, so put your focus there. Do whatever allows you to get those creative juices flowing and let those emotions out. You’ll be glad you did later in the month when we shift out of Cancer. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
