Welcome back to #BeautybytheStars—b-glowing’s monthly horoscope. As we enter the season of the Crab, we’re saying HBD to all the kindhearted Cancer folks, and looking to the skies for some astrology-specific beauty tips.
Happy Birthday, Cancer!
Known for their gentle spirits, boundless compassion, and mystical natures, Cancers are the guardians and caregivers of the zodiac. Crabs are ruled by the Moon—the “Great Mother” of the heavens in ancient times, and the celestial body that represents comfort, self-care, and maternal instincts. Cancers are ‘roots’ people, and take great pleasure in the comforts of home and family. Those born under this sign are extremely empathetic, intuitive, and practically psychic. For example, crabs are experts at “reading a room,” and can pick up on things that fly right over the heads of others. They’re highly attuned to their surroundings, and—like their celestial spirit—are self-protective and private. Cancers fixate on their personal environment, and love to create safe spaces that serve as their personal “shells.”
Since you love to spend time luxuriating in your comfy shell, this month, invest in items that enhance your downtime. A warm, comforting candle or diffuser, perhaps? You’re a marathon nester, so go ahead and make your precious alone time as cozy as possible. Much like a crab, you feel most at ease in water, so get in touch with your aqueous emotions through a fragrant, candlelit soak in the tub. Throw in a bath bomb or oil to take your relaxation to the next level, too. With its nutty-sweet notes of salted caramel and pistachio, Sol de Janeiro’s Bath Bomba offers an intoxicating bouquet that’s warm, sexy and inviting—just like you, Cancer!
As for beauty tips, try accentuating your dreamy features through light and shine. A metallic nail polish or a high-shine luminzer, perhaps? Choose colors and textures that shimmer and remind you of moonlight—silvers, whites, pale blues, and grays. And since you’ve been known to cry at anything and everything (pictures of puppies, Adele songs, reruns of Gilmore Girls—you name it), opt for a really, really good waterproof mascara.
