Cancer, Pisces and Scorpio

The Cancer sign is affected the strongest by the Cancer season, although the other water signs of Pisces and Scorpio might argue they are affected the most. The water signs already move through the life from their emotional centers, so anything Cancer experiences, the other two water signs will most likely feel just as powerfully.

Virgo, Taurus and Capricorn

Earth signs, Virgo, Taurus and Capricorn find the high emotional nature of the Cancer season uncomfortable since they usually find it difficult to express their inner emotions. In fact, these zodiac signs may spend much of the Cancer season trying to contain their emotions. It's best if they just let it all out. Let the emotions overflow their strict boundaries and walls. When the tide recedes, they'll have a better understanding of their inner selves.

Aries, Leo and Sagittarius

The fire signs, Aries, Leo and Sagittarius will be steaming or boiling most of the Cancer season. This isn't necessarily always negative since these passionate signs may find steamy evenings are a great way to explore those deep emotions. However, these fire signs should watch out for the boiling emotions that can signal deep-seated negative emotions that may erupt unexpectedly.

Gemini, Libra and Aquarius

The air signs, Gemini, Libra and Aquarius, aren't going to delve too deep into the emotional pool. They may dip a toe or two into the primordial emotional bog, but chances are they'll just lounge by the pool. The air signs know the winds have shifted and instead of being weighted down by all those feelings, they'll opt to take advantage of the laid-back season, mostly out of curiosity.
