It’s safe to say Cancers are the best zodiac sign based on their squad alone. Cancer season spans from June 21 to July 22. As a water sign Cancers float through life based on their emotions, and by float through life we actually mean they charge through it like a powerboat. They’re known for their loyalty, ability to read people yet be unreadable, their flair for persuasion, and being homebodies. On the other hand, they’re also notoriously moody, suspicious, and closed off. Basically, everyone within a one mile radius will know if a Cancer is unhappy.
While we’re counting down the days to Wendy’s birthday this month, we’re celebrating some of our favorite celebrity Cancers!
Friend to the show Jussie Smollett was born on June 21. We learned in Jussie’s cookbook “The Family Table” that he and his siblings moved around a lot when they were young.

Twenty-four was a hell of a year for Ariana Grande, but it was clear her 25th birthday on June 26th was the best yet. Aside from her latest music releases, Ariana has been making headlines for her relationship with SNL’s Pete Davidson. Pete publicly wished his “favorite person that ever existed” a happy birthday on Instagram and celebrated later with Ariana at her karaoke themed party.
The month of July is blessed because Missy Elliott was born on the first day. Missy changed the game for rappers when she released her first album “Supa Dupa Fly” in 1997. The album went platinum and Rolling Stone made Missy rap artist of the year. She’s a five time Grammy winner and a female powerhouse. Missy turned 47 this year, and all we can say is the moisturization is real.

Selena is on the end of the cancer zodiac spectrum being born on July 22, but she definitely takes on those cancer qualities.

We couldn’t think of a more Cancer-like way to get a kidney transplant than how Selena did it. Her best friend Francia Raísa was able to donate her kidney to Selena, and it’s one of our favorite feel-good stories. Selena will celebrate her 26th birthday this year.
