The sun is officially in Cancer, from June 21 to July 22. The previous season, Gemini, tends to be chaotic, fun and social, which is the opposite of Cancer season. This month is emotional, calm and unpredictable. It is the Lana Del Ray to Gemini’s JoJo Siwa. But this doesn’t mean you have to cancel all your fun plans in preference of watching The Notebook. Here are some fun activities to do during Cancer season for any sign!
Hang out with your loved ones
Cancer season will bring out the homebody in people, especially Cancers. Many find themselves chilling in their room all day, catching up on Netflix shows. But after a week, it can get lonely and isolating. The best cure is to hang out with some family and friends who you feel comfortable with. Doing this too often will drain your social battery, but once a week is perfect to get out of the house. It doesn’t have to be too crazy or adventurous; the hangouts can be a picnic or a movie night. But the company of others will make this period so much more enjoyable.
Crushing on a person that will never acknowledge your existence
This is the perfect time to have a crush on someone. Not just any person; the crush has to be someone unattainable and emotionally unavailable. It can be your co-worker, a neighbor in a relationship or the hot person at the gym that once shared a glance with you. Your emotions will eventually find the perfect person to catch feelings for. Some ways to entertain this crush are creating a playlist about them, telling your friends all about this person and daydreaming about your life together if anything were to ever happen. Get some rose quartz and manifest this person into your life because the emotions during Cancer season are going to be high. It’ll feel like you’re in a romantic comedy, except that you can write your ending: Act on these feelings or let them fade into oblivion.
Listening to sad songs at night
Late summer nights consist of the heat making you sweat in your bed, the singular fan in your room trying to cool you and staring at the ceiling thinking about life. Pairing these actions with the crazy emotions of Cancer season makes it the best time to have a sad song session. This type of music is perfect to wind down from a hot, sunny day. The calmness of these songs will lull you to sleep, but also have you in your feelings. You’ll find yourself relating to the lyrics more than usual and looking back into your past. My recommended songs are “August” and “All Too Well” by Taylor Swift, “Liability” by Lorde, “Nobody” by Mitski, “Angels Like You” by Miley Cyrus and “All I Ask” by Adele. These songs may make you cry, but they are perfect for this month.
Take some time to self-reflect
What usually happens during Cancer season is the past will come back to you. It comes in various ways, from running into an old flame to watching your Snapchat memories. But it usually has people looking back, if perhaps a little too much. Instead of wallowing in memories, use this to your advantage and set some goals for yourself. Where do I see myself in a few months? How will I get there? Am I happy with where I am right now? What can I learn from my past to help my future? These questions are great starting points to set some goals for yourself and for self-reflection. The past might come back to bite you, but you’ll be ready to dive into the future.
Cancer season can be a calm and emotional period, but it’s also what you make of it. These activities are perfect for the month and will help you immerse yourself in the vibes of the season. But if you find yourself bored with its calmness, there’s always the energizing Leo season, starting July 23rd.
