Crystals for Cancer Season


Cancer season arrives at the start of summer, hot and demanding your full attention. As the most caring and nurturing of all the signs, this season wants you to check in — mind, body, and spirit — to make sure you’re receiving as much care as you’re giving. It’s far too easy to fall into a pattern of martyrdom which can lead to irritability when your pitcher is empty, when everyone is still holding their cup out for something to drink! Cancer season invites you to find strength in your vulnerability, set healthy boundaries, and look for that full body “Yes!” in all areas of your life.
