Sun in Cancer:

Nurturing the Nest

The Sun spends approximately one month each year in each of the zodiac signs, and as it travels across the zodiac, there are subtle shifts in our mood and focus, depending which Sun sign the Sun is traveling through at any one moment.

When the Sun leaves fun-loving Gemini and moves into protective Cancer, you’ll notice a more nurturing, inward-focused vibe, with heightened emotional sensitivity and an instinctive need to care for those we love.

In astrology, during the Sun in Cancer transit, traits associated with the Cancer zodiac sign obviously become more prominent and noticeable in and for many of us.

We can expect to see an upsurge in sympathy and compassion, and a strong desire to be with family and loved ones. Cancer rules the home, so there’s also likely to be a focus on decorating, home improvement, moving home, or otherwise setting down secure and at least semi-permanent roots.

Cancerian energy is cautious but surprisingly shrewd. In business, the Sun in Cancer transit can be very productive. Financial prudence is matched with a certain strategic understanding, and a willingness to learn from the past.

Cancer energy is intimately connected with the past in other ways too, and it’s during a Sun in Cancer transit that we may feel the urge to investigate our family history, or to delve into genealogical records.

Some of us will want to revisit childhood haunts or get back in touch with old friends.

Although Cancer as a zodiac sign often has a somewhat passive image, it’s important to remember that Cancerian energy is cardinal energy in astrology – it leads, initiates, and acts.

Cancer is a water sign, so in this case the cardinal water energy leads through emotions and feelings – which makes this transit potentially quite a manipulative period.

It’s typically easier to persuade others to follow your lead during a Sun in Cancer transit, especially if you appeal to their emotions. This particular energy can of course be used for both good and bad purposes.

Cancer energy is not risk-averse, but only calculated risks will be considered during this period. It’s a time for moving forwards carefully, with both eyes open, but for moving forwards, nonetheless.

Horoscopes: How Does the Sun in Cancer Transit Affect Each Zodiac Sign?

In astrology, each Sun sign will experience the energy of the Sun in Cancer slightly differently, and each individual will experience it differently too, depending on their own personal birth chart.

As a general rule, however, during the Sun in Cancer transit, all Sun signs will be looking to protect and to advance the people and things they love most.

Aries Zodiac Sign (Aries Dates: March 20 – April 19) During the Cancer Full Moon

It’s family first, last and all the way for you, Aries, during the Sun in Cancer transit. This energy underlines the importance of emotional security and a safe and nurturing home zone for you.

Although you’re an adventurous, bold sign, you can only operate at your best when your special ‘place of safety’ or your home sanctuary is calm and settled – so if you’re stuck in life, use the Sun in Cancer transit to work on that.

Taurus Zodiac Sign (Taurus Dates: April 20 – May 20) During the Cancer Full Moon

This Sun in Cancer transit brings out the best of your communication skills, Taurus. If you work in marketing, PR, politics or any other communications business, you can truly shine now.

In your personal life too, it should be easier to get your message across. However, beware of a tendency to manipulate others emotionally. Just because you can do something doesn’t necessarily mean that you should. Hold tight to your highest motives.

Gemini Zodiac Sign (Gemini Dates: May 21 – June 20) During the Cancer Full Moon

The Sun in Cancer transit activates your financial zone, Gemini, making this a good time for investments, budgets, new financial starts, and a fresh take on financial security.

You might usefully use this transit to set up a new side hustle, especially a creative one, or to showcases your talents as a freelancer. Be sure to take expert financial advice before you make any major commitments, however – don’t gloss over the details.

Cancer Zodiac Sign (Cancer Dates: June 21 – July 21) During the Cancer Full Moon

With the Sun now in your own sign, you can showcase the very best of your loving, nurturing, kind zodiac sign. Use this transit to focus on the change you want to see in the world.

Lead by example in areas of social justiceenvironment or humanitarian issues. It’s not enough to merely speak out on things which matter to you – use the power of the Sun to act, to inspire, and to drive change.

Leo Zodiac Sign (Leo Dates: July 22 – August 21) During the Cancer Full Moon

The Sun is now transiting your spiritual zone, Leo, where you hold most of your secrets and fears. Use the light of the Sun to seek help for any phobias or past traumas.

You could also use this transit to deliberately break free from any secrets which are holding you back, by coming clean about the truth. The key is to act from the heart, channeling your highest purpose. Even if the truth is scary, revealing it for the right reasons is never a mistake.

Virgo Zodiac Sign (Virgo Dates: August 22 – September 21) During Sun in Cancer

The Cancer Sun transits your friendship zone, Virgo, bringing out strong protective feelings towards those whose company you enjoy. This is a good time to meet new friends or to get back in touch with old ones.

Don’t be surprised if some issues from the past surface now – seek and offer forgiveness where necessary in order to get a friendship back on track. The overall theme here, Virgo, is togethernesssolidarity, and companionship.

Libra Zodiac Sign (Libra Dates: September 22 – October 22) During Sun in Cancer

During the Sun in Cancer transit, your career zone is activated, Libra. This is an excellent time of year to get ahead by showcasing your skills and by pointing out to those in charge just how much more you could achieve, given the chance.

As a Libra, you don’t find it easy to push yourself forwards but use the cardinal energy of the Cancer Sun to bite that bullet. Just give it a go – you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how well you are received.

Scorpio Zodiac Sign (Scorpio Dates: October 23 – November 21) During Sun in Cancer

The Sun in Cancer transit is all about pushing your personal boundaries, Scorpio. If you feel stuck in a rut, you’ll be powerfully motivated now to do something about it.

Travel of any kind is well-starred, as are other cultures, other lands and other traditions. By opening your mind to the way other people do things, you may just find the answers that you seek for your own situation. There’s always something new to learn for you, Scorpio.

Sagittarius Zodiac Sign (Sagittarius Dates: November 22 – December 20) During the Cancer Full Moon

When the Sun transits Cancer, it shines a light onto the most complex psychological area of your natal chart, Sagittarius. You can expect issues of past trauma to come flooding back now, and it’s important to take good care of your mental health.

This is a very good time for counseling or therapy; it’s also a great time for self-improvement and improving your self-esteem. Focus on habits you know you should change and make every effort to be your best you.

Capricorn Zodiac Sign (Capricorn Dates: December 21 – January 18) During Sun in Cancer

The Sun in Cancer transit activates your love zone, Capricorn, and this indeed a good time to make a love commitment or to find a new partner if you are currently single and wish you weren’t.

Keep an open mind about the type of person you’re looking for, however, as this transit always brings surprises in that direction. If your relationship is currently struggling, this transit gives you an opportunity to heal and re-inspire it – or to end it, if that’s what you want.

Aquarius Zodiac Sign (Aquarius Dates: January 19 – February 17) During Sun in Cancer

The focus is on your health and well-being when the Sun transits Cancer, Aquarius. Look after yourself much better. Get a health check-up. Get enough sleep. Get the right nutrients into your body, and get yourself moving through sustainable, enjoyable exercise.

It’s an excellent time of year for an overall fitness and health review; take a holistic approach towards ensuring that you stay healthy.

Pisces Zodiac Sign (Pisces Dates: February 18 – March 19) During Sun in Cancer

When the Sun transits Cancer, it brings out your creative streak, Pisces. You can lead through emotions, here, as befits the cardinal water energy of Cancer – show others how art and creative activities can be a cathartic outlet for strong feelings.

Explore how you can heal yourself and others through creativity at this time; if you can figure this out, it will be a gift to you from the Sun in Cancer.

    Awesome Amazing Beautiful Fantastic! When I found Kelli Fox it was what I needed to know and read about that I am as a Libra. The positive words of Wisdom that was confirmed. I live in the mountains of Blue Ridge Georgia and God really helped me locate this beautiful home - one level with a very long driveway. I read the testimonial of a man called William K and i was not out looking at the stars which I should being alone with the deer turkeys and bears I am cautious about the night time. However this man had a person born November 14th that is my fathers birthday and so I thought i need to write to you. Thank you so much Kelli Fox for being there for me. I cried when I read all that your web site told me about myself. My home is way up in the mountains and it is amazingly God given wisdom that made me buy it for peace and tranquility. Now I am wondering if its time to go to a place closer to the town since it is a two lane road to get to town. I love the drive to town however when ive got to get to the airport it's 2 hours and then I'm late since I start to hesitate (as a Libra) and then I'm late by an hour at times! Thank you. I love all of your website. The time now 4.16 am early morning. I'm always an early riser! Thank you again Kelli Fox. Many blessings to you.Cached

    I live in Georgia I’ve attended yesterday’s zoom about Mars Retrograde, I opened the compass on my phone went outside around 8:45 -9:00 pm eastern time zone, walked down the driveway, it’s a beautiful driveway with and amazing view of the sky, So I walked down my driveway glancing, at my compass, got to the end of the driveway, I was already walking west, Look again at my compass, looked up and bam, there it was. Blinking I thought it was a plane at first, the sky was clear so I was able to see all the other stars very well, but Mars from where its located was by itself, there wasn’t any other stars around it, it had a bit reddish glow to it that’s how I knew it was Mars, one of the best days of my life, you want to know something cool, my son is a Scorpio Nov 14/2005 words can’t express the feeling I had knowing that I was looking at my sons ruler, I am a Taurus May 19/1986 special night for me.Cached

    Hi there! I am thoroughly enjoying receiving your horoscopes and informative information on how the planets are affecting our everyday lives. To say this year has been so unpredictable is an understatement, but when you explain how the planets are ‘behaving’, it makes much more sense to me. I have known about the spirit world from being a small child and am in fact a registered healer working in my local church helping and teaching as many people as I can. I feel very much the different energies in people who are unknown to me and can sum them up, usually with uncanny accuracy. A gift from God that I cherish and will never abuse.... if I do, I know it will be taken away from me. Thank you again for your insights and please keep them coming. Sending lots of hugs 🤗🤗🤗🤗 to you and yours. 💜💞💜Cached

    I am so incredibly grateful. I have known, and been applying, the incredible insights that astrology offers to my own life, for some time now, but my husband was still doubtful. I don't know that he truly was believing me about the insight offered from Astrology readings. Until last night. I played his and my videos for us, and not only did it validate insight and information I'd been telling him, there were far more tidbits that went even further in depth. That short introduction into the preciseness of legitimate Astrological insight was seriously the last bit of validation that he needed to realize that his lovely wife wasn't raving on about some cockamamy nonsense that 'is so broad and general in nature that it can apply to anyone at any time. Plus, we have been going through an incredible healing period and transformation of selves and his enabled him to begin to understand why he has felt for, protected, loved, and held so tightly onto those who haven't done the same, and he absolutely was not required to accept abuse from anyone because they're blood related. Thank You!!! The professionalism, insight, accuracy, and clarity thus gained from the peeks into our personality types, further cemented our bond with one another, and our understanding that everything that had been occurring was for our, our little family, and ultimately the Collective All In Oneness' highest, greatest good. So again, thank you for sharing your journey and your incredible contribution to the highest good of the Collective All. You, your work, and the insight/direction it helps provide are not only interesting and informative, but very much needed and incredibly appreciated! Thank You!Cached

    I have been listening to Kelli Fox's astrology videos for a few years now (even before astrology.tv started). I was drawn by both her personality and her voice (love Aussie accents), but especially by her astrological insights that always seemed to be spot on. I now watch her daily, weekly and monthly videos on astrology.tv with great anticipation, and have been joining her weekly astrology.tv weekly sessions for the past month, which are very fun and informant. I like the fact that she will go over personal charts of her viewers during these sessions (still waiting for mine, though) and being able to interact with other viewers in a chat room (Kelli loves being distracted by us!). Anyway, I highly recommend signing up for her newsletters and joining her groups. Kelli is the best!Cached
