About our Summer Solstice & Cancer Season Tarot Spread:

Along with the summer, Cancer Season arrives, bringing affection to our sunshiny days, not only to Cancerians but to all of us.

June 20/21 marks summer solstice this year, the day when there's the most sunlight in the Northern Hemisphere —technically, the Sun enters Cancer at 11:32 p.m. ET on June 20.

Summer Solstice (or Litha in Wicca) represents the apogee of the Sun. In Litha, pagans and witches celebrate the abundance, light, fullness, joy, warmth, and radiance of life provided by the Sun. What's more, Summer Solstice is when the Sun transmutes destructive forces with the enlightenment of love and truth.

Therefore, Summer Solstice is ideal for celebrating life and growth and asking for courage, energy, and health.

Though Summer Solstice is the longest day of the year, from here onwards, the nights will be longer than the days, gradually bringing winter to Earth's northern latitudes. And it's at this pace that Cancer Season starts.

Motherly Cancer is a sign of the water element, ruled by the Moon, and, therefore, all about what makes us feel at home.

So, to make the most of this Cancer Season, which runs until July 21, we can improve our diet, bring the family together at home and warm up once cold relationships before it's a little too late.
