Your Monthly Horoscope

Cancer season is the perfect time to embrace your emotional side. Find out what more this month has in store.

A new astrological season is upon us, and to celebrate, we're releasing Cosmic Cancer. The limited-edition collection includes five new tattoos inspired by the zodiac's most sensitive and sentimental sign.

Designed by Brooklyn-based tattoo artist Mira Mariah (aka @girlknewyork), these pieces are part of our ongoing Astrology Series. We release new tattoos each zodiac season and pair them with a horoscope written by our resident astrologer, Rasheem.

Shop the series for a limited time, and keep scrolling to check out your horoscope for the month ahead.

Welcome back, my friends! And congrats on surviving two eclipses and a Mercury Retrograde over the last few weeks. I hope you made it through without feeling too clouded (unlike me). Now, it's time to shift our focus from the thinking mind to matters of the heart. 

Cancer season is our annual opportunity to prioritize our emotional needs. 

Just as Mercury stations direct, giving us new energy to put the past few weeks of reflection into action, Jupiter goes retrograde and asks us to consider the future. We all have visions of our future selves — goals we've set, things we want. Jupiter Retrograde gives us a chance to reassess. Are those goals still aligned with what's best for us? This month is also a great time to remind ourselves that personal truths and absolute truths are not the same.

We experience a Full Super Moon in Capricorn on June 24. Eclipse season may be over, but the universe has many surprises in store for us, and this Full Moon could be one of them. It may mark a turning point in our relationships. Whether or not changes in your relationships come true, though, you should consider this a sign to pursue and invest in the relationships that best align with your future goals. 

Later, on July 9, there will be a New Moon in Cancer. It will inspire us to reconnect with our roots, embrace our inner child, and prioritize our families (blood-related or chosen). We may also feel more introspective during this time, and that's for the best. Reflecting on your life and relationships is always a good thing.

When Mercury enters Cancer this season, we'll be inspired to think more and talk less. When we do speak, it will be from a more emotional perspective than usual, but we'll also have greater empathy and understanding towards other people's points of view. 

It's an easy-going time of year, so lean into that slower pace and act with pure intentions.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

This season is all about you, Cancer, so enjoy it! You're always thinking about the people you care about most — use this time to be around them. Whether it's a full-on getaway or just an intimate dinner, chase what makes you feel good at full speed.

Leo (July 23 - Aug 22)

You may be feeling more playful with Venus entering your sign, but Cancer season is also lighting up your 12th house, which governs isolation. If you feel like staying in and spending more time with yourself than usual, do it! The rest will be good for you (especially following all the reflecting you did during the Mercury Retrograde). It will also allow you to tie up loose ends before your astrological season arrives.

Virgo (Aug 23 - Sept 22)

We know how important your community is to you, Virgo. You're always fighting to make life easier for your people (it's how you show them you care). However, this season the roles will reverse. You'll see your community rally to support you. Open yourself up to new connections during this time while also solidifying bonds with those you love most. Enjoy it, but also try to remember that losing friends isn't the worst thing in the world (especially when it helps you make room for better ones).

Libra (Sept 23 - Oct 22)

As the sun dips into Cancer, your 10th house of career and professional life is on fire, Libra. Work may be a top priority for you right now — rightfully so since you're doing important work that makes you proud. All eyes are on you, so whether you slack off or give your all, it's going to get noticed. Don't waste the opportunity.

Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 21)

Cancer season may be the time of the year you typically take flight (it's summer, after all — the ideal time to vacation, travel somewhere new, and expand your horizons). While this may not be possible for you yet (thanks to the pandemic), there are other ways you can open your mind this month. Get lost in a good book or start practicing the hobby you've been considering. Make connections with people who have different experiences and perspectives. Don't be afraid to learn something new about the world you live in; it may teach you something new about yourself, too. 

Sagittarius (Nov 22 - Dec 21)

Although we're out of retrograde, Cancer season may not feel as light for you as it does for everyone else, Sagittarius. Your 8th house of life, death, and transformation is activated this season, so you could be contemplating what's next for you. It's okay to focus on the past and put other things on hold. It will be worth it once you decide who you want to be going forward.

Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 19)

Is it Cancer season or cuffing season, Capricorn? This month, your partnerships sector is lighting up, which means your one-on-one relationships are front and center. It will be easy for your existing relationships to level up during this time, so if there's a special someone you've got your eye on, this is the time to pursue them. You may also have new business partners reach out to you. Remember, collaboration is crucial. You don't have to do things on your own.

Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 18)

Even if you feel like you're thriving, this month is an ideal time to reflect on your daily habits. How can you improve your day-to-day routine to make your life even better? Consider making a list of potential changes and putting them to action. The earlier you get started, the better.

Pisces (Feb 19 - March 20)

You're getting a burst of energy from your fellow water sign this month, Pisces. Use it to pursue things that bring you joy. Romance, creative endeavors, and just good times, generally speaking, are in store for you. Enjoy yourself! And allow yourself to freely receive the affection you constantly give to those around you.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

Cancer season brings those emotional vibes and could leave you reflecting on your roots and upbringing. You may find yourself taking long strolls down memory lane and reconnecting with family. Just be sure to take it easy — you don't want to exhaust yourself emotionally. When Leo season arrives next month, it will bring back that fire energy you crave so you can let the good times roll.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

Your practicality doesn't always vibe with the emotional currents that run through Cancer season, but this month, they combine and call you to focus on your communication skills. A lot of communication happens non-verbally. Now is the time to reflect on how your emotions impact the non-verbal ways you communicate with those around you. It's also an opportunity to share your feelings and better understand the feelings of others.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

This month, you're focusing on your self-worth. You were able to reconnect with your true self last season, despite all the powerful transits that occurred. As a result, you may be feeling more confident and self-assured. Things are good for you, Gemini. Keep doing what you're doing.

That's it for our astrological insights this month. If you want to rock one of our new Cancer-inspired designs, hurry! Because once this zodiac season is over, you won't be able to purchase these pieces again.
