Gifts for Cancer
Have a Cancer in your life (or are one yourself?) Then you’re in luck: today we’re going to cover seasonal gifts for Cancer!
What is Cancer in Astrology?
The star sign Cancer is the fourth sign of the star signs, and makes its appearance when the sun moves into the summer solstice in the Northern Hemisphere on June 21st. People who are born on June 21st to July 22nd (this is year-dependent) have the Cancer sign as their zodiac.
Cancer, along with Scorpio and Pisces, is a water sign. These three star signs combined shape the water triangle. The other three elemental trigons are fire, earth, and air.
On June 21st, 2022, the Sun will enter the Cancer sign just in time for the summer solstice. The sun travels a full circle of 360 degrees for the 13 constellations of the zodiac for the duration of one year.
The beginning of summer solstice is the perfect time to shop for gifts for Cancer. So what should you buy? Well…
Gift #1: The Zodiac Candle
Cancers, or Cancerians as they are also known, understand the significance of self-love. As protective defenders of the vulnerable, Cancers possess a fiery passion which aids in connecting with the needs of those they protect. Cancers tend to not follow the expectations of others, but instead make their own decisions.
Their compassionate and encouraging nature gives them great insight into what others need, allowing them to care for others as much as they care for themselves.
The Cancerian candle has a blissful scent of peonies that have been grown at different stages. This candle was inspired by the Cancer sign’s affinity to flowery scents like peony… and embodies their empathetic and strong nature!
Gift #2: The Water-Scented Candle
We mentioned earlier that the Cancer sign is a water sign along with Pisces and Scorpio. Our elements collection features a water-scented candle that represents a Cancerian’s emotional flow, like the ocean’s waves. The dreams, visions, and awareness of Cancers are so deeply passionate that they are seen as telepathic abilities… which is a trait also linked to the moon!
The water-scented candle has a captivating, bloomy oceanic scent with hints of seaweed and green algae. Also present is a fresh coastal breeze, cool rock pools, and shades of cyclamen and water lily. The candle’s foundation features glittering salt-crusted driftwood that is accompanied by the scents of amber, patchouli, and musk.
Gift #3: The Self-Love Candle
We are taught from an early age to show love and compassion to others, but what about showing that love and compassion to ourselves? Sometimes we become so focused on being there for others and showing up for them that we ignore the importance of showing the same courtesy to ourselves.
Those who are born under Cancer understand the importance of self-love and self-care and how it enters into the love and kindness they show to others. Our meditation collection features a self-love candle. Light this candle for meditation or whenever you need to be transported to a different place where you can escape the stresses and pressures of daily life.
Breathe in and breathe out as you surround yourself with the floral scents of peony, rose and oud. Close your eyes and let yourself be taken into the wilderness as you experience the scents and sounds of nature.
