• Cancer season starts on June 21 and ends July 22, 2023.
  • This astrological season is all about craving comfort and feeling loved.
  • Cancer season impacts all zodiac signs, but Cancer and Leo will feel it the most.

It’s easy think of comfort as something you only crave when you're cozied up in front of the fireplace on dark winter nights but, truthfully, it’s a year-round need. Even though your days are filled with cold seltzer, warm sun, and good vibes only RN, you’ll savor quality time with your personal comfort blankets over the next few weeks.

It’s all thanks to Cancer season, which runs from June 21 through July 22, 2022. As one of the 12 astrological seasons that happen each year, Cancer season brings its own special ~vibe~ that impacts pretty much every area of your life.

During this season, you’ll make it a top priority to spend time with the people who just get you, according to Donna Page, a certified astrologer in Atlanta. Aaand there’s a lot of other stuff happening, too.

Here’s exactly what your zodiac sign can expect from Cancer season:

What does Cancer season mean for your sign?

For starters, the desire for comfort is, in the words of Vivian Ward, "Big. Big. Huge." You want to spend as much time as possible enjoying the good things in life—like delicious food in beautiful places, preferably while lounging around with friends who feel like family. (Group trip to the Amalfi Coast, anyone?)

Speaking of which... take a beat to mull over who should and shouldn’t be on the VIP list. That old high school pal who always makes passive-aggressive comments about your outfit choices? A friendship breakup may be necessary. After all, your time is better spent having some truly amazing, life-affirming conversations with your BFFs that leave you with a rosy, loved-up glow.

Also worth noting: Venus starts to go retrograde in Leo around this time, which will make you feel like you just want to follow your heart. That can span a huge range, from grabbing an ice cream cone on the way home from work just ‘cause to finally deciding to move to Hawaii because you know, deep down, you were always meant to live the beach life.

On the relationship front, set aside some time to think about how your love life could improve. Maybe you’ll decide that you’re finally ready to get into a serious relationship, or that you’d rather just date around for now. Or maybe you need a little more affection from your partner. Whatever conclusion you come to, taking a moment to reflect on the state of things is crucial to having you feel the most fulfilled in your relationships moving forward.

Cancer season impacts every zodiac sign, but Page says that Cancer and Leo will feel it the most.

How will Cancer season affect the rest of your year?

Going forward, don’t be surprised if you find yourself doing more gut checks to make sure you’re taking care of No.1. Whether it’s prioritizing "me" time to recharge after a long work day or planning fun events with your inner circle, you’ll feel the love from Cancer season well into the future.

Also, tapping into what you want in any given moment is always a positive personal development. Once you see how good it feels to just do you, you’ll end up following your bliss more often.

Finally—let’s get real here—knowing what you want and stopping at nothing to get it is a great vibe that’ll serve you well, now and in the future. You can’t get what you don’t ask for, after all…

What’s the next zodiac season?

Make way for Leo season (as if you had a choice!), which runs from July 23, 2023 through August 22, 2023. During this time, you’ll step out of your shell a little more than usual, especially when friends are involved. Until then, enjoy the lived-in comfort of those classic summer vibes.
