Transiting Venus in Cancer
After several weeks of non-stop activity in Gemini, it was time for Venus to check out of the sign of perpetual motion and into the cozy, soothing and nurturing atmosphere that Cancer calls home.
Thanks to her rulership of Taurus, Venus has an earthy side that enjoys a comfortable home, hearty meals and well-stocked cupboards. Although she appreciates comfort foods, Venus in Cancer will never be a domestic goddess like the Moon because the she-crab’s aprons are a bit too rustic for her style.
Still, while she’s immersed in this domestic and family-oriented sign, she shares many of the Crab’s values. Consequently, she may find herself browsing the real estate section, reading home and garden magazines and daydreaming about the pitter-patter of little feet.
That’s why during this time many of you will feel more inclined to stay indoors, focus on home improvement projects or spend time with your families.
When it comes to love, Venus can be flirty and hard to pin down, but while she’s in Cancer she’s devoted, steadfast and in it for the long haul. She can also be possessive and more than a bit clingy, which is why despite her good intentions, she can make independent and self-sufficient types feel smothered. However, for those who can appreciate such attention, Venus in Cancer can be an ideal partner.
Like Venus, during this time many of you assess our relationships through the eyes of longevity, and if you like what you see, will make a deeper commitment to them.
As the planetary ruler of money, Venus has a strong interest in finances. Since Cancer is a frugal sign, Venus thinks twice before splurging and believes in saving for a home, emergencies, retirement and numerous rainy days. While here, she’s extremely security-minded and will review her savings plans, reconsider her investment strategies and shop in bulk.
And while Venus is here, you can expect to follow her lead.
Lastly, since Cancer has some rulership over the past, Venus tends to be nostalgic whenever she visits the Crab.
Likewise, during this time you may find yourself reminiscing about old friends and former flames.
Just remember that if the past starts tapping on your shoulder or tugging on your heart, it’s perfectly fine to go back for a visit as long as you remember that memory lane tends to be littered with selective memories.
