GEMSTONE PROPERTIES & LORE
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.
Moonstone :: Mother Moon
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. The pineal gland is light-sensitive, so working with Moonstone is said to help balance your internal hormonal cycles and attune you to the rhythms of nature. This crystal is believed to sharpen your emotional awareness and help you trust your feelings to reveal what they're really telling you.
Selenite :: Cleanse + Align
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.
