As of today, it's officially summertime, and with the summer season comes Cancer season, stargazers. You may feel the tides of your emotions a little more intensely for the next 30 days, but don't worry — we're right there with you.
Cancers tend to get painted with the same brush: They're emotional, cagey, and way too cautious. As rude as this characterization may be, it's grounded in the fact that Cancers are ruled by the moon and the element of water — two astrological forces long associated with our inner selves. It's natural for some Cancers to be a little withdrawn, defensive, or sensitive. But that's not where this sign's personality begins and ends.
