German-American’s Guide to Cancer Season: June 21-July 22

We’re into cozy Cancer season! A cardinal water sign, it kicks off summer with the solstice on June 21! Cancer season is a nice time to care for your home space–spruce up your bedroom or house, give your outdoor areas some love, do some gardening, tend to projects that have been on hold. Gemini season makes us curious about what’s out there, and Cancer season invites us to dive into what’s at home, what we return to after being curious.

German American’s Guide to Gemini Season: May 21-June 20

German American’s Guide to Gemini Season: May 21-June 20

Happy Gemini season! After the lazy days of Taurus, we head into another quick sign–mutable Gemini, a curious air sign. Tis the season to make reading, learning, dabbling, planning a priority! Gemini’s planet Mercury is retrograde through June 3, so it’s a great time to think back on what projects you’ve already started, what conversations or ideas you’re interested in picking up again, where you have already planted some seeds around learning, thinking, travel, and where you can follow it to the next steps. Gemini season is when we want to be out and about, running into people, expanding our experience, overplanning and overbooking, and being excited to be mixing it up with the world again, after a long winter and spring.

German-American’s Guide to Taurus Season: April 19-May 20

As we move out of the fiery energy of Aries, we get to our most rooted sign, Taurus. This is kind of a funny time of year, as the Aries energy of spring has been screaming “We’re ready to go out in the world!” And then Taurus season comes along and wants to get cozy and stay home, not quite ready to get out and about. When do you leave the comfort of your home, Taurus season is the perfect time to be out in nature, breathe in the smells, quiet down and listen, and remember that you are in a human body (probably, if you’re reading this).
