Late in June when the Sun moves into Cancer, families will join with friends and relax at the beach or the lake. Some early relationships now progress beyond friends and tiptoe into the warm waters of a deeper emotional intimacy. In the season of Cancer, snuggles, giggles and kisses are shared under the fireworks of the 4th of July. Trust and sensitivity dance the fox trot of romance. Ladies touched by the traditions of Cancer cook for their new loves and the men bring summer flowers for their girls. The sweet courtship is now official.
In late July, however, when the sun is high in the sky, we move into the fire-hot royal season of Leo. Then the real drama begins. There are three lanky, tan young men at the beach squinting through their sunglasses. They sit up quickly, dumbfounded, saying... “No it couldn’t be… could it? Could it be the bookish, pale, mousy brown-haired girl from math class?”
Anticipation grips them as this golden goddess walks in their direction, deeply tanned with waves of sun kissed hair. They are stunned into silence.
Now, the Geminis can’t understand how they didn’t figure this out first. The Cancer ladies are not amused and consider offering her a very special blend of ice tea and arsenic. Suddenly, life returns to the three young men as they scramble to stand up. They fall over themselves to make a smooth impression but in the end, they play the fool. She nods and smiles but keeps on walking past them (after all, it’s the Leo season). One night stands sizzle with romance where passion over rides reason. And it’s all like a big summer movie.
But alas, almost as if the summer winds know, the air slightly cools in late August. The Sun moves into Virgo and the pace slows. People start to rethink their personal choices as very few summer flings survive the scrutiny of the fussy and particular Virgo season.
