And what you should snack on while listening…
Cozy up and get ready to nest, Cancer season is here! Here is your specially curated playlist to get in touch with the nurturing, loving, emotional, and sensitive season! Cancer, a water sign ruled by the moon and represented by the Crab, is the fourth of the 12 zodiac signs. Cancers are known for their devotion to loved ones, powers of perception, nurturing abilities, creativity, and occasional emotional volatility. When you’re in the care of this sign, you know you’ll feel safe and all warm and fuzzy; but don’t forget, they still have those lethal claws! To really get you into the Cancer mindset, we have some suggestions for when to listen, where to listen, and what snacks to enjoy so you can get the full Cancerian experience.
Set the Scene
When: Give this a listen during a cozy night in with some of your fav friends! May we suggest some of the best friendship compatibility for Cancerians? The other water signs and earth signs may just seem to “get it”: Pisces, Scorpio, Virgo, Taurus, and Capricorn.
Where: Cancer is a homebody if there ever was one; they love to create a safe and loving environment for themselves and for their loved ones. Try listening in our favorite room of the house or wherever you feel most at home.
What (to eat): What’s more comforting than some nice tea?? We suggest one of our Organic Rishi Teas (hot or iced!), followed up with a slice of Cancer Cake; an Earl Grey Cake with Lemon Curd, Vanilla Cream, and Earl Grey Buttercream reminiscent of a soothing cuppa tea!
No Tears Left To Cry by Ariana Grande: We’ve referenced her many times, the Cancerian Pop Princess, Ariana Grande. With a large catalog of deeply emotional, heart-on-her-sleeve-with-an-edge-songs, it was hard to choose the best option but we think we nailed it. “No Tears Left To Cry” is the perfect opener for a Cancer-centric playlist because it gives classic “I’ll deck you while I’m crying” energy.
Somebody Loves You by Betty Who: This song represents that softer, nurturing side of Cancer. “Somebody Loves You” is all about reminding you how special and important you are! There is somebody out there who loves you, misses you, and cares that you get home safe, and that person probably has a Cancer placement on their chart.
Hold Up by Beyoncé: The music video that launched a thousand yellow-dress-wearing, baseball-bat-swinging memes! Though Beyoncé is famously a Virgo, this song has major Cancerian vibes. Declaring one’s love and devotion for another while also expressing a desire for vengeance…need we say more?
Rain On Me by Lady Gaga feat. Ariana Grande: Of course Ari’s on the list twice, but this time she teamed up with Lady Gaga to create the ultimate club pop song about depression. “Rain on Me” is sad, yet hopeful; emotional, yet grateful…quintessential Cancerian energy.
Too Much by Carly Rae Jepsen: Though Carly herself is not a Cancer, she has very important placements in Scorpio (sun) and Pisces (moon), the other two water signs. So, safe to say, she knows her way around an emotional lyric or two. The core of this love song can be boiled down to one line, “When I feel it, then I feel it too much”, and we think feel that’s the perfect Cancerian note to leave on.
Get ready to cuddle up, dive in, and don’t forget to watch out for those claws! Want more Cancer the Crab content? Be sure to check out our full 24 song Cancer Playlist on Spotify!
