This week is full of new beginnings for both the seasons and the zodiac world: Thursday, June 21st marks the summer solstice (the first official day of summer), as well as the first day of Cancer season. Cancers are known for being homebodies — they like to be surrounded by the people they love, like friends and family, more than other people they don’t know as well. They are passionate, emotional, and can be very creative. While Cancers will feel the affects of their birthday season the most, obviously, some other signs will also feel it more than others. Then there are the zodiac signs that Cancer season will affect the least, who won’t really notice much of a difference at all.
Even the signs who are hardly altered by Cancer season might notice some different energy, though. According to AstroStyle, “Under the influence of a Cancer planetary transit, we feel sentimental and nostalgic. These are times for nurturing ourselves and our loved ones.” Positive Cancer energy is sensitive, feminine, compassionate, and romantic. But it’s not all good: negative Cancer energy can be gossipy, cliquey, isolated, passive-aggressive, hypersensitive, and overly competitive. Everyone might feel a little bit more emotional and intuitive than usual. In fact, Cancers can be so emotional that it can kind of take over everything else, so everyone should watch their moods!
Cancer season is definitely going to affect four signs more than others: Cancer, Libra, Capricorn, and Aries. These four signs are all known as cardinal signs, meaning they each kick off a season (Cancer is summer, Libra is autumn, Capricorn is winter, Aries is spring). They have some similar qualities, so it makes sense that they’ll be affected by Cancer season.
Then there are the signs that won’t really be affected much, or that will be affected the least out of all the zodiac signs. Bustle spoke to NYC-based astrologer Lisa Stardust, who filled us in on what these signs are: Gemini, Leo, Scorpio, and Pisces. Stardust specifically points out Gemini and Leo, saying, “As the neighbors of Cancer, these signs will sandwich the Crab between them.” About Scorpio and Pisces, Stardust says, “As they are all in the watery element, they are all swimming in the ocean together, jumping tides, and having an easy month.” Not a bad deal! Check out what else these four signs can expect:
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
According to Stardust, the fact that Gemini season comes right before Cancer season adds “a sense of heightened self-worth and money to Gemini’s spirit and wallet.” She adds that Geminis will learn some lessons as well.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Stardust says that the fact that Leo comes right after Cancer, that “will allow the energetic Leos to get some much needed rest before they roar into Leo Season.” In other words, Leos will be “taking a much needed break” before they get into their own birthday season. Enjoy it!
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Scorpios, Cancers, and Pisces are all water signs, and they form a trine because they are 120 degrees apart. Stardust says, “A trine is a generally lazy but nice aspect. Meaning it’s like a butterfly kiss.” And if you’re a Scorpio, Cancer season will be easy. Stardust says, “For Scorpios, Cancer season will allow them to dream of escaping – having a summer fling and traveling to exotic places. ‘Anywhere but here,’ is the motto Scorpios will feel over the next month, as they drift off into la la land or become a perpetual beach bum (which does sound rather lovely).”
Pisces (February 20 – March 20)
Anyone who is a Pisces can also expect a dreamy Cancer season. Stardust says, “Cancer season will make Pisces feel ready to date, have fun, and create. Or, think about it… as trines don’t really take action. It would be like swiping left all day on Tinder just for fun, with no inclination to meet the other party. Or, going to a concert and the band not playing your favorite song – but all their other awesome hits. However, the gentle aspect creates harmony, peace, and fun – increased leisure activities that require the least amount of work as possible.”
