Daily Planet Tracker: Venus in Cancer, Now Until June 5

Venus in Cancer

Now Until Jun 5, 2015

Venus is a planet of sensitivity and affection. Its entry into the sign of Cancer marks a period of potentially greater intimacy and relationship-building for those willing to feel their deepest needs and share them with others. Venus in Cancer reminds us that love is a great nurturing force, one that binds relationships by the care that we give to one another.

We’re all likely to be more aware of the level of approval and acceptance we’re receiving now. This can enrich our connections with others as subtle patterns of emotional give and take become more apparent. However, it’s also possible that objectivity may suffer as vulnerability and uncertainty surface.

Venus in Cancer has a purity of feeling that puts us in touch with primal needs. Patterns of early childhood may become more evident for those able to step back and see themselves clearly. Others, though, may descend into infantile habits of petulance, withdrawal and denial of self-responsibility. The trick is to reach back in time to see the stream of development that has brought you to this point in your relationships without staying in the past. Cancer, at its best, connects the past with the present.

Water signs, like Cancer, work more from instinct than intellect. Verbal communication, then, may not be sufficiently expressive to match feelings. Venus in Cancer is a time when love and relationships move far beyond words. This is a period in which subtle signals count a great deal. Be alert to what is not being said, if you want to deepen your understanding of those close to you.

Cancer can be a highly nationalistic sign, so it’s no surprise that leaders like Fidel Castro, Yasser Arafat, Menachem Begin and the elder George Bush were all born with Venus here.

Tipper Gore, another person in this category, reflects the protective maternal instincts of Venus in Cancer. Actors need to be able to share their feelings to effectively ply their craft. Ben Affleck, Dustin Hoffman and the incomparable Meryl Streep were all born with Venus in Cancer. Other members of this group include singers Stevie Nicks and Jerry Garcia, comic Steve Martin and Camilla Parker Bowles.

A Little About June Birth Symbols

June Babies

“The air is like a butterfly, With frail blue wings. The happy earth looks at the sky, And sings.” —Joyce Kilmer

Zodiac: Gemini until June 21 and Cancer from June 22

Gemstone: Pearl
The pearl has long been associated with purity. Pearls are the only gems that come from living sea creatures, and they’re also unique in that they require no faceting or polishing to reveal their beauty. Today, most pearls are cultured, grown under controlled conditions by farmers to ensure perfect shape.

Flower: Rose, Honeysuckle
A rose’s color signifies different meanings: red means “I love you,” pink means perfection and white is innocence. Honeysuckle, June’s other flower, stands for the strong bonds of love.

Tree: Ash, Hornbeam, Fig, Birch, Apple

June’s birth flower is the rose, which has more meanings than one can count! A pink rose means perfect happiness, while a red rose means “I love you.” A white rose signifies innocence and purity, while a yellow rose conveys jealousy or a decrease in love. A bouquet of roses means sincere gratitude, whereas a single rose amplifies the meaning of the color (a single red rose means “I REALLY love you”). The other June flower is honeysuckle, which is a strong symbol for the everlasting bonds of love.

June Birthstone – Pearl

The month of June is represented by the pearl. “Pearl” is derived from the Latin word “pirum”, meaning pear, which is the shape that many pearls take on naturally when they grow. Many ancient civilizations have told a variety of stories and the birth of the pearl. The Greeks believed that they were tears of joy that had been hardened when they were shaken from the eyes of the goddess of love when she was born in the sea. Arabs believe that they were formed when oysters were lured by the light of the moon from the depths of the seas. The moon would leave dewdrops of its light, which would be swallowed by the oysters and taken back with them to their deep oceanic homes. The Chinese in ancient times thought they came from the brain of a dragon.

Specific gemstones are utilized to symbolize our birth-month according to the Gregorian or Western Calendar. Each month of the year brings in a new cycle. For many of you reading this, there needs to be no mention of what one might feel from the energy emitted from each stone representing each month and season. The cycles of each season have their own meaning and energy. Aligning with the changing times, each gemstone can increase our spiritual and mental energies. Many of these yearly shifts compromise our bodies, our immunity, mental health. Many have believed for centuries specific gemstones can counter these affects, granting strength and even cure ailments that might come with each season.

The formation of the pearl is as mystical as its history. For oysters to create a pearl, a small irritant, usually a small fish or parasite would lodged itself in the flesh of the oyster. The presence of the fish or parasite would then cause the oyster create what is called a “nacre”. This nacre grows over the intruder layer after layer and creates a luxurious pearl. As natural pearls are rare, man has created a process in which a small bead or piece of shell is placed inside the mollusk, stimulating the nacre production. This practice makes up about ninety percent of the pearl industry. They are harvested all over the world from the South Pacific, Gulf of California, Gulf of Mexico and its Pacific coast, Gulf of Manmar, the Persian Gulf, Europe, Japan and Australia.

At one time, Royalty were the only ones who were allowed to wear jewelry with pearls. Eventually, they were seen worn by all status’ of culture. Pearls have been obsessed over and been a passion for many. They are the symbol of purity, enhances ones integrity, and are often times given as a gift celebrating the birth of a child or marriage. Pearls are viewed as a sign of refinement and good taste. White pearls are usually given as gifts, however there are a wide variety of spectrum that the pearl grows: white, silver, cream-colored, gold, green, blue and black.

Other interesting facts about the June Birthstone Pearl:

-The pearl has been ground up into fine powders for use in cosmetics, and is effective for health problems of the intestine, stomach, and heals ulcers.

-In earlier times, pearls were seen as more valuable than the diamonds.

-They were sought after by powerful rulers and emperors around the world

-The pearls that have perfect symmetry, sometimes large are viewed as the best ones

Venus in Cancer

Romance turns sweet with the love planet in cozy Cancer

Our love lives have been light and carefree — but also fairly non-committal — since love planet Venus moved into Gemini, but finally romance is about to get sweeter.

That’s because Venus moves into caring Cancer on May 7, 2015, to touch hearts in a much more sentimental way. Get your personal Big Picture Love Forecast to see how this will affect your own love life!

Venus is the planet that rules beauty and affection, and Cancer is the most nurturing zodiac sign, so this transit is all about taking care of our closest romantic relationships and putting our partners first. Oh right, and lots of hugs.

While Venus was in Gemini until June 5, 2015, we were more likely to go out on the town and flirt, but with Venus in Cancer it’s much more intimate. We’ll want to stay at home and bond, cuddle and kiss and talk about our feelings. Yes, men, even you!

This is a great time for building up relationships, so if your love life has been stalled or if you’ve been dating a commitment-phobe, things may take a turn for the better now.

The only downside to Venus in Cancer is that sometimes we are so sensitive about matters of the heart that our feelings get hurt easily. Cancer’s self-protective nature is to withdraw, withhold, hide or pout when hurt, so you may need to watch for such behavior from your partner now.

But for the most part this is a sweet time that’s rich with feeling, to be spent gazing into someone’s eyes and saying “I love you” without using words.

Cancer and Cancer Love Compatibility

Cancer and Cancer Love Compatibility


By Molly Hall, Astrology Expert



When two Cancers hook up, they go all moony-eyed over each other, seeing the mirror of deep understanding reflected back.  They feel things out in the same way.

While dating, they may intuit the emotional interest of the other, and find the cautious approach endearing. And that brings a slow bonding love ritual that suits the pace of this emotionally sensitive sign.

With a love match, each will try to show the other that they’re homebase — a safe zone in a world of meanies and players. Once trust is established, they’ll enjoy going out, but also spend a lot of time at home, the start of lifelong nesting. Intimacy is sweet and sensual, and bonds their hearts like superglue.

Loony Tunes

Both ruled by the Moon, this relationship has intense ups and downs, with moods that linger over the atmosphere. Take it from someone brought up in a Cancer-Cancer household, when it’s good, it’s grand and when it’s bad, it’s horrid!  On the choppy emotional sea, it can seem like nobody is steering the ship.

One or both players in this duet suddenly retreats from real or imagined hurt, and the silence is deafening. Without the subjectivity of other signs to balance it out, this pair drowns in their own emotional swamps. And being Cancers, it’s not acted out in a direct way, but through complex passive actions meant to stir a reaction in the other.

Cancer is sometimes voted the Craziest Zodiac Sign for its erratic mood swings.  With two Cancers, you’ve two people liable get lost in their own personal atmospheres with its extreme highs and lows, and everything in between.

The reason it’s tough to “reason” with a crabby Cancer, is that they’re deep in their world of subjectivity and submerged feelings.  Easily overwhelmed is one way to look at it.  But check the rest of the birth chart for more keys to understanding — especially the Moon sign.
Serious Moonlight
Two Cancers make for a loyal pair, definitely marriage material, since security is at the top of the list. When they’ve started on the domestic path together, the defenses start to come down, and all energy goes into creating a cozy home.
They’re ambitious cardinal signs, and this also is channeled back into the family empire. They share a love of history, family ties, especially Mother, affection, food and having an intimate, private, soulful romance. Two Cancers are over the Moon to raise a family, for the sense of intimate belonging it brings.
Unless their emotional tsunamis destroy what they’ve created, this is a sure thing.
Upside: A slow build to emotional trust; share a need to retreat; family-oriented; lovers of history and the past; able to build support networks; some wisdom with finances.
Downside: Two drowning people clinging to one another; erratic moods; no boundaries; challenges seeing relationship issues objectively.

Cancer and Cancer Love Story
“The article is true. I met him 3 years ago and it felt like we knew each other before. We went on our seperate ways and met again randomly, ever since the natural connection bounded us like glue. we are not boyfriend and girlfriend yet, but I would not change anything about it right now. He just knows how to pull me back from my moodiness and his presence completes me. we are alike yet slightly different and I know that we both like each other dearly. we will take it day by day and be simply happy and loved by one another. The best feeling ever.”

Get A Jump On Tomorrow, Your Horoscopes for Sunday, January 25th


March 21 – April 19
There’s no feeling quite like that which we experience when we get our head or hand stuck in something. In theory, what went ‘in’ must therefore come ‘out’. We experience a similar feeling when we paint ourselves into a corner. We become aware of restriction that we have inadvertently created for ourselves that usually involves difficult backtracking in some way. In an area of your world now, you aren’t stuck or in a self-created restrictive situation. It just appears that way. Soon, you will see how you are able to free yourself.
April 20 – May 20
We are all captains of our own destinies. Where we are at this moment in time in each of our lives is the result of a series of decisions we made in the past. Does that mean we are in the ‘wrong’ place or ought to consider seriously why we are where we are? You have recently set in motion a process that is daunting and causes you to wonder if you truly possess abilities needed to see it through. Then, there are implications and concerns to address when you do see it through. You are where you are meant to be and can therefore relax in the knowledge you will succeed

May 21 – June 21
No journey is ever straightforward. Even Romans renowned for building straight roads had to take much into consideration in terms of how best to arrive at their destination safely. You probably wish the process you have put in place was more straightforward and the destination was clearer than it is but that doesn’t mean the inevitable twists and turns will prove problematic. What you’re experiencing now is an essential part of an essential journey and is nothing you need fear or be concerned about.
June 22 – July 22
It appears a certain person is confused and might have drawn very much the wrong conclusion about something that concerns of involves you. For some time, your instincts have probably told you something wasn’t right and you might need to put someone in the picture properly but you understandably chose to leave someone to their own devices in the hope clarity on their part would arrive like sunlight through a window. It hasn’t. Not yet, anyway. You-know-who needs some steering or guidance. Find it within you to provide both and you’ll bring an end to a drama.
July 23 – August 22
It’s amazing what theatre and film set creators can do with paper, plasterboard and wood. They create what looks from a distance very realistic heavy stone or solid steel walls. But, they know their creations will be viewed from a distance and not up close, so there are limits to how realistic they need to be. That still doesn’t stop us from believing them to be as solid as they appear. In your world now, a situation is giving the impression of being stone or steel-like, and immovable. Take a closer look. With less effort than you believe is needed, you can push your way through it.
August 21 – September 22
Much in life relies on appearance. None of us would consider entering a restaurant that hadn’t had some effort made to reassure us of its cleanliness. Neither would we consider willingly allowing ourselves to be part of a dangerous or tense situation if we weren’t reassured of our safety. In a similar way, you need to look now at a level of magic you’re keeping at bay through not making it attractive enough to enter. You’re giving it reason to remain detached, as much as it wants to make its way to you now. All it’s looking for is a sign of reassurance that you want it.
September 23 – October 23
Smile, and the world smiles back. Laugh, and the world laughs with us. How easy is it for you to summon a smile now, let alone laughter? Might you be doing something that contradicts in the minds of certain others how you ought to be feeling? What some might see as a dramatic or no laughing matter, there is much you can do to improve an unfunny situation. This simply involves you smiling. If the smile can become laughter, then even better. You are able now to break tension in ways it needs doing.
October 24 – November 21
You can’t do that. Don’t do that. Stop doing that. Such words are those we grew up with said to us mainly by parents or teachers. We clearly believed what we were doing was fine but it soon became obvious it wasn’t. Does such restriction leave us when we’re older? Unfortunately, it doesn’t. We still find ourselves being told what we’re doing is wrong or inappropriate by those who believe they can say such things. One or two people might make it clear they disapprove of something you’re doing now but are you harming anyone? No, you’re not. Enjoy it.
November 22 – December 21
Might it be easier to simply hold your hand up and admit you were wrong? Would this do much to placate someone who clearly believes you have missed a crucial point and ought to be taking more notice of what they’ve been trying to tell you? Something felt right or justified to you but it appears a certain person has a bee in their bonnet about how you have wronged in some way. So, hold your hand up and admit they have a point. Once you do that, you will be able to hold your head up in a way that suits you.
December 22 – January 19
Before we make one decision, we need to have made another, somewhere along the line. We assess one situation before we can make an assessment of another. It’s fascinating how much our assessment of one situation influences another, especially if we drew an inaccurate conclusion previously. You need to do some backtracking now. You need to return to a point in the past where you formed a particular opinion or arrived at a certain conclusion because where you go from here – and into the future – depends on you changing a set-in-stone attitude.
January 20 – February 18
Walking away from an issue is a possible option but you know the issue will not go away as easily. It will not fade into obscurity or be forgotten quickly. It intends to follow you because it demands your attention and, once you give your attention, it will progress in some way. What has largely been a stalemate scenario for some time is now shifting but for it to do so, it needs you to take it a bit more seriously than you have of late. Face what needs facing. Rise to a certain challenge that involves putting an aspect of your past behind you.
February 19 – March 20
Release what needs releasing. Abandon what needs abandoning. Forget what deserves to be forgotten, but be willing to learn from it. That’s the message from the sky now and as 2015 gets underway properly, you appear to be carrying much in the way of emotional baggage from 2014 and understandably believe yourself obliged to carry it. Soon, you will see how what has preoccupied your mind throughout much of last year is becoming increasingly irrelevant. It is time to move on and a very clear, positive and encouraging reason to do so is presenting itself.

Full Moon in Cancer: Love is Home/Home is Love

Full Moon in Cancer: Love is Home/Home is Love


As the first full Moon of 2015 arrives on January 4, we’re still just getting over our holiday hangovers — and some of us have had enough family dysfunction to last until next Christmas. But this lunation will pull us directly back into the metaphorical womb.

Cancer is the most sensitive of the zodiac. As a feminine, cardinal, Water sign, its signature skill is nurturing. Hungry? Go find your Cancer friend and you’ll be fed, and fed well. They can instantly intuit your every need, and are so empathetic that they too will feel hungry — but they’ll wait for you to finish before they take a bite. The perennial mothers of the zodiac, they want to take care of you, and they want to do it well.

As soon as New Year’s Day, you’re likely to feel your own sensitivity start to crest. As good as Cancer energy is at taking care of people, its instincts are sometimes too sharp. Like the “Princess and the Pea,” you’ll feel everything this week — sometimes things that aren’t even there. Your moods could swing sharply, especially in the 24-hours before the lunation is exact (at 11:53 pm EST).

Nostalgia is Cancer’s domain — so you might begin to long for the comforts of home and early childhood. You could miss the house you grew up in, childhood friends, or even the pets or toys you had when you were a carefree kid. Just as we hold onto what we perceive to be the “good times” of our pasts, we also hold onto our old hurts. As this intense full Moon approaches, you might find yourself again licking wounds from long, long ago.

Let yourself tend to these old wounds, real or perceived. Just for now, it’s okay to revisit the scene of an early family loss or sense of abandonment because it will instill deep healing and help you to repair your current relationships with your loved ones. This full Moon is opposite powerful Pluto, so you’ll be healing old karma before, during and after the weekend.

The key is to take any old loss and replace it with love. It is indeed possible to go home again — as a healthy, loving, well-adjusted adult. You don’t have to let your feelings infantilize you. There’s no reason to punish yourself for wanting affection and reassurance because, after all, nothing is more human. This full Moon can show you that it’s okay to be vulnerable and ask for what you need — especially when you’re hungry for love.
