The collective excitement about the summer season can be attributed to many reasons, including celebrating our beloved astrological sign, Cancers. Every year from June 21 to July 22, the world comes together to acknowledge these mystical beings. Known for their nurturing yet silly personas, these folks undoubtedly bring an unmatched level of joy to our lives. As we officially embark on their season, it’s time we acknowledge just how amazing they are.

We’ve known and loved La La for her entire career, and it makes sense that she possesses a bubbly and caring personality — she’s a Cancer! Born on June 25, the New York native’s birthday is coming up very soon.

Sure, you’re aware that Fantasia is a powerhouse singer, but did you know she’s a Cancer, too? We’ve got some time to get her a birthday gift as her birthday lands on June 30.

4. Missy Elliott

Missy Elliott is one of the most excellent musicians of all time, and she’s one of the most significant Cancers of all time, too. With her birthday being July 1, it makes sense that someone as iconic as her would kick off an entire month.

This talented multi-hyphenate, born on July 8, knows no bounds, and we think we’ve figured out why. He’s a Cancer! It only makes sense that someone as talented as him has that kind of spirit synonymous with the astrological sign to keep him grounded.

Since her debut, Lil’ Kim has been synonymous with the words legend, fashionista and now Cancer. Born on July 11, Lil’ Kim is one of the most influential Cancers we know, and we stan her even more.

7. Richard Roundtree

That’s right, Richard Roundtree, born on July 9, is also in the mix! Mr. Roundtree is one of the most revered performers of our time, and we’re jealous of his astrological siblings, who get to claim him as a fellow Cancer.
