Cancer 2021 Horoscope (June 21 - July 22)

It’s time to slow down and think. Gemini stirred up plenty of exciting new experiences but the time for outer exploration is over. 

Treat this time as a reflective experience and look inwards. Examine your relationships, how they affect you and the way people in your life influence you. You might find that something needs to be changed so you can move forward. 


Two of Pentacles | Five of Pentacles | King of Wands

You’ve started this season off unbalanced. A lot of energy was spent trying to set yourself right in Gemini. Now you’re struggling to keep up with the balancing act that is life. 

Try to get your feet underneath you because, unfortunately, your troubles aren’t over yet. It may be a sudden death in the family or loss of fortune coming to knock you down while you’re distracted. 

Take charge before disaster strikes. Remove people who bring you down and get rid of bad habits that hold you back. Most importantly, put yourself first. All of this will help you get in a position to weather the coming storm.

Judgement | Six of Wands | King of Pentacles

It’s time to reflect on what you want out of life. Look to yourself and the people around you to determine who and what needs to stay and needs to go. 

Take this time off to re-evaluate the positives and negatives within yourself. A positive outlook is the first step to success. If you can keep your head up, you’ll see the path laid out before you. 


Queen of Pentacles | Judgement | Queen of Cups

It’s time to slow your roll. The success of last season has kept you busy with the fruits of your labor. It’s the right time for a mental health day. 

While you decompress and step away from the busy world of work, ask yourself a few questions. Are you where you want to be in life? Are you happy with yourself? Are you prepared for the future? 

When you’ve sorted out the answer to these questions, take a much needed break. You can only reach your goals well rested, physically and mentally.  


High Priestess | Death | Two of Pentacles 

Your inner voice has been calling to you and it’s time to pay attention. After your triumph last season, it’s time to take it easy. There are aspects of your life you’ve been ignoring in favor of the hustle. Things need to change, and fast, if you want to remain successful and happy. 

There are bad habits and bad people you need to drop from your life. Although it might be hard, letting them control your life will put you in a bad place. It might feel like a juggling act but a life revaluation needs to be done.  This is your time to shine. Let nothing and no one hold you back.

Five of Wands | Page of Swords | Four of Wands 

It’s been smooth sailing since Gemini. The atmosphere at home and work is cooperative and friendly. Your relationships are fulfilling on both sides of the equation. 

It’s time to take advantage of the calm. Now that you aren’t focused on keeping your life together, go for what you want. Take risks and put your best foot forward! Enjoy what life has to offer. 


Six of Pentacles | Eight of Pentacles | Queen of Cups 

You worked your way out of a tough situation. Although it might’ve felt like the world was against you, you found a way to get back on top. As you make your way up from baseline, be aware of who is helping you and who’s holding you back. There’s a big difference between people helping you out and people looking for favors. 

Watch out for those looking to take advantage of your vulnerability. There should be no strings attached on your journey to normal.

 It’s your turn to be selfish. Do what you want and prioritize your health, physical and emotional, over all else. Make this season about you and focus on what makes you smile! 


Ace of Swords | King of Wands | Prince of Cups 

The new day has brought you new ideas and a better focus. It’s time to get back to the projects you put on the back burner a while ago. Do the things you want to do.

Gemini had you taking it slow so you could get back into the groove of working for you. Now it’s time to throw caution to the wind. Be daring and learn from the mistakes you make on the way. 

Don’t let minor delays get you down. Bad things happen whether we like it or not. Don’t let anything stand in the way of you reaching your goals.

Ace of Wands | Hermit | The Fool

After a rough time in Gemini, you’ve come out safely on the other side. With trouble no longer dogging your every step, you’ve had the time and energy to pick up new passion projects. 

Don’t bottle up your enthusiasm. Share your hobbies and the things you love with the people you love! Your sign is one of change and reflection. 

Locking yourself away from the world won’t help you move forward. Use this time as a new beginning. Get back into the world. Reinvent yourself and enjoy life! 


The Sun | Eight of Swords | The Moon

Whether your problems were big or small last season, you’ve come out on top. After what feels like a long time, you feel excited for what’s next. 

Keep a tight hold on that positivity as you wade out of your problems. Remember that there is always a way out of trouble and there’s always a helping hand if you need it. 

Although your path may not be clear right now, stay positive and focused on your goals. 


Seven of Wands | Seven of Pentacles | Four of Pentacles

It’s time to take a break. There may have been people or projects you were excited to complete and meet. But long term success might not be in your cards.

Your intense focus has let other important projects go uncompleted or ignored. It’s time to finish what you already started and get some results.

Free yourself from a mountain of unfinished work or being left on read and focus on your future.

Two of Cups | Eight of Wands | The Magician

In Gemini, you felt like you were walking near the edge of order. Now, you feel completely unbalanced by the curveballs life keeps chucking your way. It doesn’t help that your projects and personal life are moving slowly. 

Important projects aren’t getting completed on time or your personal relationships aren’t turning out the way you thought they would. Don’t worry. This is just a slow period in your life.

Don’t let it get you down. You still have a chance to make your dreams a reality. You’ll just have to wait a little longer for them to be completed. Believe in yourself and your ability to see things through to the end. 


Queen of Wands | Three of Swords | Seven of Pentacles 

Even though we try to leave our past behind, we can’t always leave everything behind. You struggled a lot last season but came out stronger because of it. You’ve left behind the people, habits and places that held you back. But be wary. Even though you’ve left your troubles behind, they’re not done with you.  

Be prepared for the remnants of your past popping up to complicate your future. Getting rid of them a second time might bring you more trouble and heartbreak than Gemini. Leaving the familiar is hard, even if it’s bad for you. 

While you deal with the difficulties of starting over, don’t feel too bad about feeling stuck or like you’re not putting forth your all. Moving forward isn’t the priority right now. Making sure you’re alright is. Put yourself first this season.
