What is Cancer Energy?
Cancers are a Water sign, which is deeply emotional, spiritual, creative, and intuitive. This sign is ruled by the Moon, the planet that connects to our emotional center. Cancers, therefore, are moved by their emotions rather than logic – they follow their heart in nearly all matters of life.
This emotional energy can sometimes become imbalanced, causing moodiness or sensitivity that may lead to conflict. That’s why it’s so important to try to maintain emotional, mental, and physical balance during Cancer season – if we let these emotions take over, we may become overwhelmed.
Some positive Cancer traits include:
- Protection of those they love
However, like any sign in the zodiac, there are also negative traits associated with this sign, including being overly sensitive, moody, and even vindictive.
Working with positive affirmations that specifically connect to Cancer’s healing energy will help you make the most of this season, whether you are a Cancer or not.
10 Healing Affirmations for Cancer Season
1. “The World Benefits When I Am Part of It.”
Cancer energy can encourage us to stay at home and retreat into our own world.
Think about Cancer’s symbol, the crab, and the safety of its shell. When you remind yourself that the world needs you and your energy, it becomes easier to put yourself out there and share your ideas with others.
Repeat this affirmation on days when it feels hard to leave the safety of your nest.
2. ”My Emotions Make Me Stronger.”
Cancer season can feel overwhelming with emotions, especially if you happen to be an Earth sign or an Air sign – two elements that prefer logic and rational thought over intuition and feelings. By using this affirmation, you’ll begin to realize that your emotions are here to guide you, not hold you back.
Repeat this phrase to yourself when you feel sensitive or thrown off by overwhelming emotions.
3. “I Follow My Intuition & Trust Where It Leads Me.”
One of the most beneficial aspects of Cancer season is the increase in intuition. However, many people are disconnected from their intuition, unsure of when to follow it.
If you begin using this affirmation each day, you will develop a deep sense of trust in yourself and your instincts.
4. “My Loving Nature Makes Me Who I Am.”
Feeling emotional or sensitive can cause discomfort, but being a compassionate individual is the key to opening many of life’s doors.
While it’s not always easy to share or express your love for others, this phrase will help you realize that being a loving individual is part of your core, your spirit – it’s what makes you who you are.
5. “Compassion & Understanding Benefit Myself & Others.”
An overwhelming sense of compassion is likely while we’re in Cancer season, and for some, this may feel unsettling. But compassion makes the world go round, and it fills our world with love and wonder.
Cultivating your compassion and understanding is one of the easiest ways to feel more aligned with the Universe and those you care for.
6. “My Loyalty Towards Others Spreads Love.”
Cancer season brings out our loyal side and makes us feel more dedicated to our loved ones. Repeating this affirmation will remind you that this loyalty spreads love and compassion throughout the world.
This affirmation will also make you feel more loyal and honest towards your loved ones.
7. “I Am Patient, Kind, & Empathetic.”
Let’s face it. Cancer season can cause emotions that lead to impatience or moodiness.
It’s important to remind yourself that you are a patient, empathetic person. When you repeat this affirmation throughout the day, you’ll begin to actually feel more patient and understanding.
This affirmation can remind you to stay calm and collected, even in the face of frustration.
8. “I Am Strong, Courageous, & Brave.”
Another aspect of Cancer season is that it opens our hearts and makes us feel more vulnerable with our loved ones. This vulnerability can be uncomfortable, especially if you aren’t used to sharing yourself deeply with others.
Repeating this affirmation will help you feel strong and confident, even in the face of emotional vulnerability.
9. “Taking Care of My Body Keeps Me Healthy & Energized.”
When Cancer season rolls around, we feel more inclined to stay in our pajamas and enjoy the comfort of our own home, complete with television and a tub of ice cream. It’s important to move and stretch the body, get some sunlight, and nourish yourself with healthy foods and beverages.
Repeating this affirmation will remind you to take care of your body and nourish yourself.
10. “My Creativity Guides Me & Allows Me to Express Myself.”
Cancer is a very creative sign, and digging into this artistic energy will help you find a new release for your emotions. Grab your paints, markers, colored pencils, notebooks, glitter, glue, and any other medium that you enjoy.
Repeat this phrase to yourself to remind you to indulge your creative side and express your emotions.
