Cancers are sweet and sensitive water signs controlled by the Moon. This combination makes them one of the most emotional, moody, and misunderstood signs of the zodiac. When the Sun transits through the sign of the crab, the rest of the zodiac has a tendency to take on these Cancerian personality traits -- namely, intense and overwhelming feelings, which can prove to be quite difficult for some to handle. The best way to stay afloat in these tumultuous waters is by staying connected to our emotions, honoring our feelings, and remaining grounded. If you need a little extra assistance keeping yourself cool and collected this month, look into working with the following crystals that are perfect for Cancer season and tune into their calming energies.

CLEANSING & CHARGING YOUR CRYSTAL:
You can charge crystals by placing them in a spot where they will receive direct sunlight or moonlight. The light will penetrate your crystal and fill it with positive energy.
- To use light to purify a crystal, place the crystal in a spot where it will be directly exposed to the light. For example, you may want to set your crystal on a table or banister outside, or on an open windowsill facing the moon or sun.
- Allow your crystal to be exposed to light for about 24 hours. You may need to leave your crystal in place for a couple of days or nights to make sure that it receives adequate light.
- You can charge the crystals under the sun for action or passion, or under the moon for reflection and healing.
