Cancer Zodiac Gemstone Mala
Cancer Zodiac Information
Date Duration: June 21 - July 22
Sign Quality: Cardinal
Ruling Planet: The Moon
As we feel into Cancer season between June 21st and July 22nd, we dive into our watery, emotional depths, our intuition, and our vulnerability. As the emotional heart of the zodiac, most Cancers have been called psychic at some point; she can often intuit relationships, ideas, and motivations before anyone has actually spoken them.
Ruled by the Sea Crab, ocean tides, and Mother Moon, Cancer expands into her full potential when she emerges from the comfort of her shell. This leaves her feeling raw and vulnerable, but as her trust + resilience develops, her greatest traits are revealed. Key themes for Cancer season include nurturance, loyalty, vulnerability, resilience, and recognizing the connectedness with the Moon and nature.
Gemstone Properties + Lore
There is no better crystal for the Moon-ruled crab than Moonstone. As one of the most emotionally sensitive signs in the Zodiac, Cancer’s process information with their heart first. Moonstone’s light-bending properties help to stimulate the pineal gland, which is the “seat of the soul,” or our inner knowing. This crystal is believed to sharpen your emotional awareness and help you trust your feelings to reveal what they're really telling you.
Selenite gets its name from the Greek Goddess of the Moon, Selene. It's powerful in clearing negative energy and leaves you feeling calm, centered + aligned with your higher self. Just like the cycles of the moon, Cancer’s emotional state waxes and wanes. It is said that Cancers are “moody,” but a more effective way to perceive it is as an ebb and flow. Maneuvering between being open and bright (such as at the full moon) and introspective and quiet (such as at the new moon) is necessary for Cancer energy to protect herself.
Rose Quartz matches the caring side of Cancer. It puts out a gentle, nurturing energy that promotes compassion, self-acceptance, and love on all levels, including self-love and unconditional love of others. This crystal reduces feelings of self-pity, indecisiveness, and possessiveness, and it eliminates negative thoughts and fears.
