Get ready to be in your feels, because it’s Cancer season! Through memes, get a better understanding of these sensitive moon children and the general energy of this season

For those who are born between 21 June to 22 July, it’s finally your season—Cancer season. To those who aren’t familiar with astrology, Cancer season is a period of emotion. Cancer is the fourth astrology sign out of the twelve and falls under the group of water signs (Scorpio, Pisces, Cancer). On top of that, it's also a cardinal sign, also known as the “instigators”. This means Cancerians demonstrate the qualities of proactive leaders and tend to be highly motivated. Much like the serene oceans and rivers that hide what’s below the surface, water signs are quite complex characters often associated with being very emotional and reserved, which explains the theme and energy of Cancer season.

There are different alignments of the planets and stars, and all of these highlight different aspects of your personality, purpose in life, and links to your past lives. However, most people focus on your “top three”, which are your sun, moon, and rising (or ascendant) signs. Lana Del Rey, Chris Pratt, Meryl Streep, Solange Knowles, Tom Cruise, Tom Hanks, and Selena Gomez are some of the many famous Cancerians you may not have known were born under this sign.

The literal Latin translation of “crab” is “cancer”, which explains the symbol for this zodiac sign. Cancerians are also represented by the crab because of the hard exterior that keeps them safe, as they're soft and vulnerable on the inside. Cancerians are known as empaths; they feel everything deeply and are easily wounded as a result. They enjoy decorating their home, making it comfy and cosy since that’s where they prefer to spend most of their time. Most of them tend to be more traditional and crave stability over misguided adventure.

We’ve compiled a bunch of memes for you to better understand our soft and emotional Cancer friends. Even if you're not a Cancerian, you'll be feeling the general mood of this season and relating to some of these:
