Sweet Scopes is a Sweet July series in partnership with Amber the Conduit. Each horoscope season, we bring you tarot readings specific to your astrological sign, with beauty and wellness tips tailored to help you be your best self.
When the sun rests in Cancer from June 21 to July 22, consider it your opportunity to invest in some TLC—lean into your safe spaces, your friends and, most importantly, your heart and mental health. On days when you feel like doing absolutely nothing—don’t. Nestle yourself into a bed with a warm cup of tea and a binge-worthy show.
More than ever, you’ll value your own space, so no more avoiding the things in your home that need tending. Cleanse and clean, organize your closet, invest in new furniture, go grocery shopping. Cook soul food that satisfies your inner child, like the favorite meal your grandmother used to make. Cancer is the mother of the zodiac, so the desire to spend more time with your mom, grandma, aunties and mother figures will be strong. Sometimes we just need their warm embrace. Focus on your foundation and water your garden. This season is all about building patience and learning how to slow down.
Get your tarot readings below! (Read your sun, moon, rising, and Venus astrological signs for the most accurate guidance.)
Cancer | 2 of Swords
In comes the accountability and motivation you’ve been craving in order to make the changes that stand between you and growth. Have honest conversations with yourself and assess the areas where you’ve been playing it safe. Reflection and self-trust are essential to restoring the balance in your life. You are detaching yourself from identity traits, ideologies, relationships and contracts that are nearing their expiration dates. Alignment sometimes comes with a side order of redirection, so don’t fear the pivot. Get out of your head and let your heart guide you. To ease any built-up tension, add yoga, barre, pilates or even a dance class to your calendar as a commitment to honoring your body. Your mind will feel so much clearer! When you prioritize learning the language of your vessel, your decision-making will come naturally because your body will tell you what’s an absolute “yes” or absolute “no.” As far as your relationships go, keep your eyes open and avoid turning a blind eye to signs that point to a lack of honesty or reciprocity.
Leo | 4 of Wands
From the Universe comes just the right amount of magic needed to celebrate your progress. Your growing confidence is giving you the push you need to keep betting on yourself. Anything that’s been in limbo is either graduating to the next level or transitioning out of your life. You may even experience an unexpected end of a cycle, but it is actually a new door opening for you. Where and how do you envision yourself shining and thriving? Like a plant whose roots have overgrown its pot, you might need to repot yourself in a new city, job or even relationship. This month is confirming that expansion is on the horizon. Your dream of bicoastal living, moving your operations to another city or expanding your territory is closer! Surrender to your success because it may require you to distance yourself from your comfort zone. Keep your carry-on packed with necessities so you’re always ready. And if you didn’t think you were ready, think again.

Virgo | The Fool
Cancer season is amplifying your intuitive nature. Rather than overthinking each move, chase your curiosities and hold on to this spontaneous version of yourself that’s shining through. Satisfy your inner child and be more impulsive—live a little! Work on releasing your attachment to knowing or expecting what the outcome will always be. Channel Erykah Badu’s free-spiritedness and let her words “the man that knows something knows that he knows nothing at all” stick to you like honey. Leave room for the Universe to answer all of your questions and even pose new ones. It’s okay to sometimes deviate from your plans. Your mind may not be able to comprehend it, but your heart and intuition will spill all the tea. Remember, you’re never starting over; you’re starting anew. Consult your ancestors for an added layer of spiritual wisdom and support. The Fool card reminds you that faith is required at this time. What are you putting your faith into this season? If nothing else, let it be in yourself!
Libra | 9 of Cups
The opportunities presented to you this summer will spark joy and enticement. It’s your reminder that life is not one size fits all. Use your creativity, finesse and determination to tailor your life to your personal standards, needs and wants. As doors open, ask yourself: Does it properly represent my values, attitude, perspective, goals and desires? Will it bring me peace, comfort and honor the lifestyle I deserve to live? If it doesn’t seem to compliment your essence, it could be time to create your own opportunity. Perhaps you haven’t received what you want because you were meant to design it yourself. There’s so much power in being a co-architect of your reality. Keep a pyrite crystal or jewelry close to affirm you are your own source of abundance. Cancer season awakens the inner rebel in you that absolutely refuses to fit into a mold. Why fight so hard to keep the peace when you could live peacefully in alignment? You deserve to live a life you’re absolutely smitten with.
Scorpio | 2 of Cups
There is lightness surrounding you; the next few weeks will be a breath of fresh air. You could feel highly supported and guided at this time, which makes it a lot easier to trust the flow of how things are unfolding in your life. Every era is a chapter of your life story. Embrace this exploration phase you’re in—try a new hobby, visit a new city, create that side hustle. There’s value in being guided by your happiness and instincts. Run towards all of the things, people, places and experiences that make you feel warm and embraced. Cancer season shines its light on divine timing in your life. Your self-love journey is also leading you to a place where you’re at peace and loving yourself unconditionally. There’s something you’ve been yearning for that is making itself known to you soon. If you’ve been wondering whether or not you’re ready for a new relationship, the answers are coming your way and someone new could be entering your life as soon as this summer. Redefine your needs and snuff the flame out of anything that’s been compromising them. When you leave the house, dress up like you’re about to meet the love of your life or secure your dream job—and grab the chicest pair of sunglasses while you’re at it.
Sagittarius | The Hermit
Sometimes, forging a path that’s never been walked before can feel isolating. Embrace the home-bodied nature of Cancer season and spend time cultivating your relationship with yourself. Sage, you’re a wise one. Understanding your role within the Universe and how you can contribute to its evolution often entails looking inwards. This will be a highly spiritual few weeks during which you’re likely to unlock valuable information leading you closer to your soul purpose and personal development. Enjoy your own company as you’ll have more time for soul searching. Focus on your healing and welcome anything that has the potential to help you tap into embodying your higher self. Consider going on a retreat, privatizing your social media temporarily or planning content in advance to stay offline. This is the perfect time to get a spiritual reading for guidance or tap into the Hot Honey Line for daily wisdom. Otherwise, the mood is do not disturb.
Capricorn | King of Pentacles
It’s a good time to start making investments your future self will praise you about. What are you investing your time and energy into that will compliment your growth? With legacy talk in the air, you’re feeling extremely connected to your ancestors at this time. This might inspire you to take on new roles and responsibilities that will nurture and sustain your family, finances, businesses and overall well-being. If you’ve been deep in your caretaker bag, take some time for yourself; treat yourself to a nice massage or splurge on body care. Learn from your past financial decisions. Save, but don’t be afraid to spend either. Don’t let the fear of losing what you worked for scare you out of making boss moves that will keep your currency in flow. If you’re blessed with heightened financial flexibility this month, don’t hesitate to put that money towards something that will serve you in the weeks, months or years to come. This could look like investing in your business or starting one, getting insurance policies, making home improvements, pre-paying a bill or knocking off some debt. Be proud of what you’ve built thus far.
Aquarius | The Moon
The psychic energy of the season can blur the lines of intuition and illusion. Pay close attention to your inner world and especially how it may be affecting your mental health or affecting your healing in unexpected ways. It might require more effort and attention from you to quiet the noise of your own mind. Frequent your outer world safe spaces to process your emotions sans judgment. Rest is detrimental this season, so pause on late-night brainstorm sessions. The notes of eucalyptus and jasmine in this Sweet July Sweet Dreams candle will support your slumber and ease your mind as you doze off. If you’ve been keeping yourself distracted by way of delaying your own healing, it will come up sooner or later. Be vulnerable with yourself and acknowledge what you’ve been avoiding. The only way out is through—and it might be time to rip the band-aid off. But once you acknowledge it, don’t let the past hold you back.

Pisces | 8 of Pentacles
Water seasons can be turbulent for some, but this is where you tend to thrive. Your connection to self is your gift. That’s why when something deeply resonates with you, you jump at the opportunity to capitalize. In the past, you might have taken on a new interest for the sake of monetization, but Cancer season is presenting a new hobby that, at this moment, is just for you. This strips away the unnecessary pressure of doing things “right” and gives you room to learn about yourself and how you operate. Your plate may be fuller than usual, but if this thing is making you feel fulfilled, and if it’s sharpening your tools, enhancing your gifts or helping you master your craft, it’s worth the time invested. It’s a step towards improving the quality of your life. The slightest lifestyle change could help you free up your time to do more things that you enjoy. If you haven’t already made a schedule for yourself that prioritizes free time, get to it!

Aries | Page of Swords
Chiron is the wounded healer, and it is currently positioned in the sign of Aries. Paired with the emotional weight of Cancer season, this is a recipe for radical transformation and growth. There is astrological support to make adjustments to your communication style. Your archetype is represented by the bull whose horns serve as their defense. There may be a conversation you have this season that divulges your defensive tendencies. Speak with intention and speak to others the way you’d appreciate being spoken to. Don’t let your tone cloud the validity or importance of your message. Work on finding the right words to describe how you’re feeling and what you’d like to address. Try journaling or recording voice notes to yourself to get your thoughts out. With your throat chakra demanding your attention, you could experience blockages that can manifest as physical ailments, such as having a sore throat or losing your voice. Keep honey stocked up to throw in your teas and even your baths.
Taurus | Queen of Pentacles
Your magnetic presence will certainly be requested often throughout the season. Family members, co-workers, besties and even social media peers want a dose of your loving energy. The Queen of Pentacles is the embodiment of the working mother. Honor the wisdom of this energy by prioritizing time for your own needs as you invest more time into showing up for others. The generous and caregiving spirit in the air may inspire you to pour into the ones that you love. Food is definitely one of your love languages, so maybe you’ll find yourself baking a sweet treat for your faves or hosting a fancy dinner party at home. Find that sweet spot between self-preservation and community building. Think about the ways you can contribute to your tribe without compromising your time and energy. You can expect this to be a busier summer, so start thinking of ways that you can free up your time. It could be as simple as getting a protective style to free up your mornings.
Gemini | 5 of Knives
With family and community being the driving force of Cancer season, you’ll inevitably have to face the past. There could be built-up emotional baggage that’s blocking your heart chakra and making it increasingly difficult to heal, forgive and move on. Despite the discomfort, face your triggers and reflect upon your strained relationships. If the connection is valuable to you and worth mending, put your ego to the side and address the elephant in the room. In the words of Jay-Z, “Nobody wins when the family feuds”—chosen family included. Turn down the petty and confront the uncomfortable. Create a safe space to have authentic and respectful conversations. Conflict resolution is detrimental, so tap into different ways to work through your issues with family, friends and even co-workers. This is your chance to flex your growth and maturity. Give yourself a pat on the back each time someone tries you and you practice calmness and discipline in response. When these important conversations need to be had, jot down your talking points first in order to stay on topic.
