Cancers are very in tune with their emotions. Some say they are sensitive. I don’t see it as a negative trait. I feel that in many ways, Cancers have the ability to showcase a humanistic approach when coping with situations. Needless to say, there are moments where they’ll feel something and there isn’t a well defined name on how to describe a particular feeling. 

Have you been feeling fuzzy as of late? Not sure what’s happening internally and need to have some closure? We will be using The High Priestess in hopes of invoking her magick on going beyond the veil. The High Priestess planetary association is The Moon (also the ruling planet for Cancer). 

This particular spell involves hydromancy (or water scrying). Similar to mirror scrying, it’s a good form on getting in touch with your unconscious. Also for receiving messages from beyond.

You will need:

  • The High Priestess (deck of your choice)
  • Clear quartz crystal
  • Dark bowl
  • Water
  • Two candles


  • Find a dark quiet place where you won’t be disturbed (can be indoors or outdoors). 
  • Fill the bowl with water. Add your clear quartz crystal inside the bowl. 
  • Light the two candles and place them on opposite ends of the bowl. Place The High Priestess card in front of you. 
  • Take the time to enter yourself in a trance-like state. It can be as simple as meditating. You can also listen to some music if it helps. As you’re doing so, recite the following:

    Like the tides of the waves
    My emotions go low and high
    Awaken my senses
    Help me see what’s inside
  • Stare into the water. Use the crystal in the water as a focal point. Your eyes will need to be relaxed. Hold in the intention on what you are feeling at the moment. Are you trying to make sense of your emotional well being? You may notice some ripples and images coming through the water. Keep in mind that your own interpretation should not be compared to what others may see when they perform water scrying. Remain calm and steady as you're in this state. Don't give yourself a time limit on the process. Allow the Universe to guide you when honing in on your emotional needs. 
  • Once you feel like you’re starting to lose focus, let it be. When you feel you are finished with scrying, be sure to make note of any visions, images, etc. that you may have encountered. Don’t forget to thank your spirit guides!
