The Tarot card that connects to Cancer for me is the Chariot.
The Chariot is my favourite card and it shows victory over adversity. Although emotions may run high, as with most big moon phases, staying focused, this card reminds us we can still achieve our goals. this card is a travel card and brings a sense of coming’s home with good results. Feeling in control without having to crack the whip!
If you have an Alter, look at placing happy family photos on it, Moon stone for the moons emotional balance, Citrine crystal for happiness green aventurine for nurturing and you could write a few new ideas or hopes you want to see come to fruition. The tarot cards you could place could be the chariot, the sun as a happy family card or the 10 of cups, aces are great for new beginnings but remember they only show the potential – really though it should be your own intent and ideas for the highest magical power.
