Let’s be sensitive!
Welcome to Cancer season, the time of year when we fully embrace the start of summer.
On the heels of the summer solstice, we turn inward to understand our inner needs, emotional strength, and reflect on what matters most to us as we experience the longest days of the year.
The powerful Sun will swim in the pools of Cancer from June 21 to August 22. Cancer is symbolized by the Crab and embodies our emotional center. This Water sign encourages us to build our stability and security, as well as to pay attention to our intuition.
We connect with our families, better understand our place in our heritage, and can improve our homes and domestic lives. Cancer is the fourth zodiac sign on the wheel, known as the cardinal sign. It helps us become pioneers in emotional growth and understand our most basic needs.
Ruled by the Moon, the luminary of emotions, Cancerians yearn to nurture those around them, develop sacred space, and nurture their souls. Dive deep into global trends and predictions for what’s hot and what’s not in fashion, music, fitness, hair and finance (cryptocurrency and NFT!) and beauty for the 2022 cancer season! Don’t miss it!

WHAT’S IN for women’s and men’s fashion: Cancer season kicks off summer and nothing brings the “summer feeling” quite like the Cannes Film Festival! Global film industry players and celebrities gather in the south of France in the seaside resort of Cannes to bring the watery Cancer vibes to celebrate the industry’s brightest! Although Cannes is known as an international film festival, it is also about the industry’s brightest celebrities gracing the red carpet.
Follow the famous music producer, Craig J Snider.
WHAT IS IT : Our pick for Cancer season is Kate Bush’s “Running Up That Hill,” the classic ’80s ode to love returns with a vengeance.
Simultaneously dominating TikTok and “Stranger Things”, Kate is back on all our virtual airwaves! The song is a classic ode to love with a twist. It’s about a couple that has a strong love, but creates problems and insecurities. “If only I could, I would make a pact with God, I would make him change our places”: she wants men to be able to experience what it is to be a woman and vice versa. The lyrics actually transcend genre and are as insightful now as they were over 30 years ago. Imagine if we could do that: what would that mean for all the misunderstandings we experience in our world today? The production holds up surprisingly well and could be something you might hear on a 2022 playlist. Kate inspired several generations that followed, a true trailblazer indeed.

Women’s hairstyle trends
Follow celebrity hairstylist Brandon Liberati.
WHAT IS IT : It’s Cancer season: my favorite zodiac sign! Being a Cancer myself, this hair trend gives me all the FEELINGS. The element that rules this zodiac sign is Water. So, naturally, “Liquid Hair” is the hottest trend this season! Unlike the predecessor of this trend, “Glass Hair”, which had a blunt, leaf-like stiffness, “Liquid Hair” is silky smooth, much softer, just like this sultry zodiac sign. Cancers prefer flowing movements like the tide (and their moods), so this hair trend moves like water with plenty of shine as it catches the sun like a calm summer day in July by the ocean. .

The dichotomy of Cancer’s hard shell lining and soft, sensitive, compassionate interior makes perfect sense for a bolder direction for male hair. From Justin Beiber’s longer cut to Jay Z’s thick twists, Korean boy band Min-Ho’s bleached blonde hair and JungKook’s strong middle part, all the styles are bold and prominent, matching your what we’ll see in the coming weeks in Cancer Season!
Serafino says a pro tip: Don’t forget to try THE BEST PASTE.™
Kristan Serafino has recently worked with Ryan Reynolds, Danny Devito, Sir Kenneth Branagh and Richard Gere!
Finance and cryptocurrency
Follow cryptocurrency investor, Amanda Maxwell.
WHAT IS IT : As almost anyone can tell you, the crypto/stock market has officially entered a bear market. This can obviously make you very emotional this Cancer season, and rightly so. Since the beginning of this year, crypto and equities have been hit hard as the Fed withdraws its stimulus programs, which of course leads to temporary price turbulence.
This month, as we channel our inner Cancer, we must remember to give ourselves compassion and understand our sensitivity to the subject. Ultimately, we must remember that the technological and economic issues that made Crypto such a viable option for solving the world’s problems are still in play. People around the world are sticking to the nature of Cancer’s loyalty and cling to what they know is an equalizing force in this world.
Special tip: Someone told me many years ago, when in doubt, zoom out! It is an incredibly powerful mental tool that allows you to follow the path of any stock/crypto and realize how much that asset has grown over the years, regardless of current price fluctuations. It helps you stay calm in turbulent times.

Mercury retrograde chewed us up and spat us out until cancer season! Cancer energy is filled with embracing all the depths of our emotions and what better emotion than love [is love]? This year’s theme for the NYC Pride March is “Unapologetically Us” which is so on-brand for cancer energy! The sun symbol of Cancers is the crab and likewise they have a tough protective exterior but inside they are compassionate creatures who also make others feel loved.
Come out of your shell, Cancer, and use that spirit to support the LGBTQ+ community and enjoy the festivities! Cancer is a sponge that absorbs the surrounding energy, so this season will make you feel deeper emotions than you ever dreamed of! Although Miss Carey did not official plans to join in the festivities this year, there will be appearances from many other laudable queens, including Grand Marshal and social media influencer Ts Madison and rap queen Lil Kim, who will headline NYC Pride Island music festival poster this afternoon.
The last NYC Pride March took place in 2019 before the pandemic, where nearly 40,000 people marched alongside around 5 million spectators. Don’t worry if big crowds aren’t your thing, because for the past five years ABC-TV has aired the iconic march. So dust off that margarita maker and invite your friends over for a watch party!

WHAT IS IT : Cancer season is here! What better way to kick off this nurturing and magical zodiac season than by engulfing yourself fully in the shades of ruby, which is also one of Cancer’s corresponding birthstones! Put on ruby lips and apply ruby tones of eyeshadow to give you that hard shell with a soft Cancer inside!
Special shoutout to Brandon Liberati and Lizzy Polanco for their anniversary season! Enjoy the sweetness of Cancer Season! You heard it here the first time.
