Calling All Cancerians1 of 12
The sun enters Cancer on the Summer Solstice, June 21, and leaves July 22, so for the next 30 days, crabs will take center stage. Find out everything you need to know about this intuitive, caring and only sometimes reclusive sign.
Celeb Icon2 of 12
Don't let the the crab association mislead you: While a Cancer may be moody, she's also nurturing and compassionate—once she lets you in. Fellow Cancer Meryl Streep embodies the sign's maternal, yet determined nature.
Sidewalk Style3 of 12
A water sign ruled by the moon, Cancer is one of the most feminine signs of the zodiac. Make a flowing maxi-skirt your go-to summer staple. Another fashion necessity? A tough moto jacket—it'll provide a protective outer shell for sensitive crabs.
Trend to Try4 of 12
Delicate lace details, as seen at Valentino, will appeal to Cancer's romantic side.
Beauty Must5 of 12
Something pretty yet effortless will appeal to Cancerians, who gravitate towards demure, understated looks. Skip the messy bun—way too trendy for your taste—and instead try an ultra-low pony.
Decor Idea6 of 12
Blend your love of the past with your need for comfort to create a cozy space that's accented with antique pieces and personal touches, like family photos, heirlooms and mementos.
Creative Outlet7 of 12
Cancers also have an affinity for mementos of the meaningful variety, and are avid collectors. Create a scrapbook. You'll enjoy reliving good memories with loved ones, and letting your creative energy flow is another way to release emotional stress. When you're out and about, pick up little tokens—such as matchbooks and ticket stubs—to save alongside photos.
Fitness Fix8 of 12
Being a water sign would be enough to make you overly sensitive, but the extra influence of the moon makes you run a whole gamut of emotion. One of the best releases is physical activity, so try running or walking outside. Pay attention to your breath and what's going on around you to feel more grounded.
Vacation Inspiration9 of 12
A tendency to hold on to things makes saving money a Cancer strength—which means you can splurge on a luxe getaway. Indulge your adventurous side with an exotic trip (try Tulum, Mexico, for a reasonably priced, totally-worth-it paradise getaway). Taking the time away will rejuvenate you.
Mr. Right10 of 12
Cancers' natural insecurity requires a romantic partner who is protective and devoted. An ideal partner would be one that loves as unreservedly as you do, and who is strong and confident enough to support you when emotional turbulence hits, but soft enough to be sensitive to your feelings. Scorpios (like actor Luke Kirby) make for a good connection.
Mr. Wrong11 of 12
Your loyal (borderline possessive) and sensitive nature lends itself better to monogamous, committed relationships. Despite how tough you try to appear on the outside, you do not do well in ambiguous romantic situations, running the potential of you being deeply hurt. Beware of Geminis, like actor Chris Evans: Their non-committal attitude would wreak havoc on your self-esteem.
Best Friend12 of 12
Sensitive Cancers are infamous for mood swings. You'll need to surround yourself with people who are understanding and sympathetic. For support, turn to a fellow water sign; a Piscean (like actress Olivia Wilde) will understand what it's like to live in a constant state of feeling.
