Astro Tip of the Month: What’s in Store for Us?

Vedic and Western astrology interpret the placement of Zodiac signs a bit differently. You might be surprised to find your sign is actually the one before it. Knowing your Vedic Sun sign can really change your perspective and potentially make a world of difference in your life.

Sun in Cancer: Using our Emotions for the Well-Being of Others

July 14th to August 15th


The Sun moved from the light-hearted, effervescent, fun loving and talkative air sign of Gemini to the sensitive, nurturing and deeply emotional water sign of Cancer, symbolized by the Crab and ruled by the sensitive, dreamy Moon. The Sun will be in Cancer between July 14th and August 15th.

Emotions can be easily stirred up for all of us in the coming weeks whether we are born under the Sign of the Crab or not. Why? Because no matter when we were born, we all have the 12 signs of the zodiac in our astrological chart. And because the energy of the Moon and its relation to maternal instincts are so powerful, the placement of the sign Cancer in a chart is extremely important. So, wherever Cancer is located in our chart, that house will be impacted by the Sun over the next 30 days as it travels through Cancer.

Cancer is the fourth sign of the zodiac, reflecting our innermost nature. Think of the vulnerable crab that symbolizes the sign Cancer. This feminine sign is sensitive and perceptive. Its key phrase is “I feel”. The Moon, the planet of perception and feeling, rules Cancer.

While Cancerian energy relates to our heart and happiness as it pertains to a love of—and devotion to—our mother, home and homeland, this month it is important not only to take care of those near and dear to us, but to expand and dedicate our love and devotion to anyone and everyone in need of our care and nurturing. By turning emotion into devotion, we calm our emotional turbulence and improve our own well-being while improving the well-being of all those around us.

Cancer is a sensitive, nurturing and caring sign, giving expression to the house where it is located. The sign Cancer is highlighted when it is found in one of the following three positions: when Cancer is the ascendant and when the Sun or the Moon is in Cancer.

Here are a few luminaries who have benefited from their connection to Cancer:

CANCER ASCENDANT: Canadian singers Céline Dion (photo), Michael Bublé, Robert Charlebois, The Weeknd, Alanis Morrisette, Kevin Parent and Guylaine Tanguay all have a Cancer ascendant just like actor Matthew Perry.

SUN IN CANCER: Canadian actors Sandra Oh (photo), recently departed Donald Sutherland, Dan Levy, Bruce Greenwood and Evangeline Lilly, and singer-songwriter, poet and writer Félix Leclerc all have the Sun in Cancer just like Hockey Hall of Fame inductees Maurice Richard and Hayley Wickenheiser.

MOON IN CANCER: Actors Tom Hanks, Charlize Theron, Harrison Ford, Patrick Swayze, Clint Eastwood, Tom Cruise, Catherine Deneuve and Marie Trintignant, as well as award-winning performers Barbara Streisand, Shakira, Patrick Bruel, Ringo Starr, Paul McCartney, David Bowie (photo) and Jimmy Hendrix all have the Moon in Cancer, just like Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

Because the energy of the Moon and its relation to maternal instincts are so powerful, the placement of the sign Cancer in a chart is considered to be extremely important. This transit provides us an opportunity to find a quiet, inner space to explore our sensitivity, recharge our energies and offer the very best of who we are to others.
