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 from June 21st through July 22nd, 2023, 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.

Sun in Cancer for an Aries (Aries dates: March 20 – April 19)

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.


Sun in Cancer for a Taurus (Taurus dates: April 20 – May 20)

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.


Sun in Cancer for a Gemini (Gemini dates: May 21 – June 20)

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.


Sun in Cancer for a Cancer (Cancer dates: June 21 – July 21)

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.


Sun in Cancer for a Leo (Leo dates: July 22 – August 21)

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.


Sun in Cancer for a Virgo (Virgo dates: August 22 – September 21)

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 togetherness, solidarity,and companionship.


Sun in Cancer for a Libra (Libra dates: September 22 – October 22)

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.


Sun in Cancer for a Scorpio (Scorpio dates: October 23 – November 21)

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.


Sun in Cancer for a Sagittarius (Sagittarius dates: November 22 – December 20)

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.


Sun in Cancer for a Capricorn (Capricorn dates: December 21 – January 18)

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.


Sun in Cancer for an Aquarius (Aquarius dates: January 19 – February 17)

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.


Sun in Cancer for a Pisces (Pisces dates: February 18 – March 19)

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.

    Hello, I'm donalding in California. I was elated to get your text message and your challenge to make a video testimonial. I'm at a huge crossroads and starting over and I am the oldest person in the dorms at West Hills College and California. I'm going to study and get smarter and figure a way out of this little mess. I didn't know about Pisces or any of these things coming into my life and I definitely need to avoid bullying. There are and things are going to be just fine. We are interconnected, we are, we are loving, we are not competitive, and we are not.

    Hi, guys. Me and the cat here say hello, Kitty. I think anytime you got a real person that you can see talking to you is better. I think just video in general makes everything better. It's more entertaining, it's easier than reading. So if you do your own fair share of reading, it's good to just be able to listen for a change. So I think it's a good thing. I don't know if I'm answering, really what you wanted me to address, but keep up the good work. I'm enjoying it anyways. Bye, guys. Bye.

    Hello. How you doing? Good morning. I just like to appreciate all the encouraging things and basically, like, being. Hitting everything on in the head, what goes on through my life and everything, you know, I'm a firm believer, and it's just a real blessing to have someone like you all to, you know, with the heads up, with the presence, just everything. And I just wanted to let you know, greatly appreciate of you, you all. And, um, like, I know I have a special calling in life. Just through various things just went on in my life. I could tell. It's like, you know, I haven't been through a lot. I've been through a lot, but I always let my good outweigh my bad, always keep me a positive head. And, you know, I do my best to speak life into my situations instead of doubt and complain most of the time because I know God's got my back regardless, through anything. But I just like to thank you for all you have done. And at times, I may even forget to look on, look on here. But when I do go back and look, I catch what need to be caught, you know, it's just that, you know, it's a busy point in my life right now. Like, it's real busy and. But I still make time through it all. I just like to say I thank you and I appreciate you all for each and everything. And when I do be able to receive the funds and start investing in this and help out, I will. Until then, thank you. I love you. Thank you. Bye.

So what has become of your daily "extras"? Are you taking a break and someone is subbing for you lately? I certainly hope that is the case and that you are well! Praying for you, love you! - Lou

    I just want you to know I absolutely love you. I rely on you. If I get rich, I'm taking you with me. I'm going to have you with me every day of my life just because it's kind of weird. It's kind of scary how dead on you are all the time. But you want to know what? I love you. Thank you for finding your way in my life. I love all your emails and everything. And sometimes it scares me and I just try to be like, okay, let me just steer away because I always feel like I'm missing out on something, being occupied by stuff I'd rather not be occupied by, entertaining people and stuff that shouldn't be, getting people blocking my blessings, I guess you'd say. But besides that, I just need to take a leap of faith and just go all in it because I know who I am, what I want and I can't get it when I'm sitting in the house not doing anything because I'm all depressed because of the people that I have, people that suck my energy away. I don't know how to explain it. Just people that front row cheer me on to fail. But seriously, I love you. Thank you. I appreciate you. Bye.

    Hey, Kelly. I am ready. If I had known I was going to be recording this, I would have worn some makeup. So anyway. Oh, that's my vanity speaking. Sorry about that. But anyway, I do love listening to you and I always acquire a lot of knowledge. I've been studying astrology since I was about eleven years old. I love it and I can't get enough of it. But I just wanted to let you know that I loved that quote from Eleanor Roosevelt that you put on there. It's so true. We need to live life while we have it and make the best of it. And astrology will help us lead the way. I'm assured of that. Anything we can learn when it comes to astrology will only help us to live a better life. And by your volunteering all your information, I thank you a million times over. You are such an asset. And I know the stars and the planets are shining down upon you and I listen to you all the time on YouTube and your Zoom channel and have a wonderful Thanksgiving and I hope your throat feels better. Kelli keeps drinking some hot. Thank you for everything you do. My name is Judith and I'm from Greensboro, North Carolina, and I'm a cancer and I love all of what you have to say. Thank you. Bye.
