June 21st 2024 – July 22nd 2024
The start of Cancer season aligns with the Summer Solstice-Summer is officially here! With the hard shell of the crab, Cancer natives find their roots in home, memory, and emotions. As a water sign, Cancer natives have an affinity for nurturance, protection, and leadership; melding people into family units just as water represents the moistening and cohering principle that binds and connects all forms of nature. Always ready to host, and set a table, they are good at reading the emotional tone in a room because of their protective instinct to side-step and observe situations before opening up completely.

Give the Cancer in your life gifts to suit their intuitive, nurturing, and protective energy!

Cancer is ruled by the moon, giving them a sensitive, wear their heart on their sleeve kind of love.

The moon was thought to be the protector of the earth, reflecting the strong and divine rays of the Sun and blocking asteroids! Scott is also able to custom cut other planetary surfaces as well.
