The Sun entered the sign of Cancer on June 20, 2016 at 5:34 PM CT. Scroll below to see what this means for you.
The Cancer Sun (June 20 - July 22, 2016), ruled by the Moon, starts with the Summer Solstice north of the equator.
It is the birth sign of the United States of America. Cancer is the first water sign of the Zodiac.
Cancers form their identity around home, family, food, plants, and personal experiences.
They are very empathetic and enjoy nurturing others - and being cardinal, they have no problem taking the initiative to do so even though they are generally shy.
Being ruled by the Moon, they can feel and reflect every fluctuation of mood, whether the source is internal or external. Cancer's empathy and nurturing character is a gateway for lunar intuitiveness and a Moon-struck merriment.
What does Sun in Cancer mean for the rest of us?
Regardless of your sign, all of us are likely to move into a period where our emotional life takes center stage - just think of all the summer romances you hear of or experienced.
When the Sun is in Cancer, tend to your gardens to find serenity, and make good memories during the hottest month of the year. Take plenty of photos so you could continue to reminisce. Cancer is one of 4 signs that love photography. Oh yes, don't forget to be near the water - the ultimate source of serenity for Cancerians, Cancer Rising Signs, and those with Cancer Moons.
