Venus in Cancer

Jul 18, 2014 to Aug 11, 2014

 

 

 

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.

What Do The Planets Have In Store for You for July 20 – 26

Weekly Astrology: July 20-26, 2014

Damn that planetary traffic jam!

Maria DeSimoneMaria DeSimone on the topics of new moon, leo, astrology
Planets are colliding every which way this week! Retrograde, direct, ingresses and lunations — oh my!

Sunday, July 20: Saturn Direct in Scorpio

On Sunday, Saturn turns direct in Scorpio after having been retrograde for several months. You can expect forward movement in professional matters now, as Saturn is naturally connected to business and career.

Monday, July 21: Uranus Retrograde 

Then, on Monday, Uranus turns retrograde and will remain in this phase for several months. During this time you may notice your urge for freedom and individuation pressing you to make a change. Ready or not, here it comes!

Tuesday, July 22: Mercury in Cancer opposite Pluto in Capricorn; Sun in Leo

On Tuesday, Mercury in Cancer will oppose Pluto, reinforcing the mantra “knowledge is power.” Indeed, you may discover potent information on this day that has deep ramifications in a domestic or career matter. Also on Tuesday, the Sun will enter Leo, allowing all of us to shine a bright light on the pursuit of pleasure. 

Thursday, July 24: Venus in Cancer trine Neptune; Sun conjunct Jupiter; Mercury in Cancer square Uranus; Mercury trine Saturn

On Thursday, it might feel like there’s a planetary traffic jam. First, Venus in Cancer will trine Neptune, allowing unconditional love to flow. The Sun will also conjunct Jupiter, opening the door for a lucky break in a creative endeavor, your love life or relationship with a child.

On this day, Mercury in Cancer will also go from squaring Uranus to trining Saturn. If you put your foot in your mouth, you’ll definitely be able to “save” yourself from any communication fail. 

Friday, July 25: Mars enters Scorpio (Until 9/13)

On Friday, Mars will enter Scorpio, where he remains until September 13. This once-in-two-year transit will set the stage for you to connect with the depths of your personal power. Will and determination will be strong, and once you decide to do something, nothing — and no one — will steer you off course. 

Saturday, July 26: New Moon in Leo

Last but not least, on Saturday there will be a delightful New Moon in Leo that is doubly-blessed, thanks to Jupiter also being in the same sign. Expect a fresh start in romance or your creative drive. Cultivate a new hobby and live life through the eyes of a child. Carefree is where you’re meant to be!

Your Planet Tracker for July 14th: Mercury In Cancer, July 12 to July 31

Planet Tracker

Mercury in Cancer

Jul 12, 2014 to Jul 31, 2014

 

 

Mercury is associated with intellect and Cancer with feelings. This combination offers us an opportunity to perceive and communicate our emotions more directly at this time. Conversation is likely to be more personal than usual, with a greater capacity for intimacy. However, objectivity may suffer as awareness is filtered through the powerful issues of security, family and safety.

Every astrological pattern offers its challenges and opportunities. In fact, they are really two faces of the same thing. In this case, the challenge is to articulate emotions without being overcome by them. The opportunity is to soften the separating aspects of the logical mind to connect with others in a more personal fashion.

Cancer is a water sign. The mysteries of water can not be spoken, only felt. Mercury’s passage here does not erase the rational aspects of perception, but it broadens them to include information that can not be put into words. Know that silence can be full of meaning. This time is a reminder that real listening is done with the heart, as well as with the ears.

Mercury in Cancer shows up in the charts of conservatives like Nancy Reagan, Bob Dole and Pat Boone. Prince Charles, a watery Scorpio, has met this placement with both Princess Diana and Camilla Parker Bowles.

David Duchovny and Isabella Rossellini speak with Mercury in Cancer soulfulness, as do storytellers Bill Cosby and Arlo Guthrie. Cat Stevens’ Mercury in Cancer helped lead him to Islam, while Salman Rushdie’s has led him away.

Cancer adores tradition, the home and the garden. So, it’s not surprising that food, style and do-it-yourself goddess Martha Stewart was also born with Mercury in this sign.

What Do The Planets Have In Store for You for July 13 – 19

Weekly Astrology: July 13-19, 2014

Get ready for a roaring good time…

Maria DeSimoneMaria DeSimone on the topics of venus, jupiter, cancer, astrology
This will be a grand week, with both of the benefic planets (Jupiter and Venus) moving into new signs.

Sunday, July 13: Mercury in Cancer and Venus in Gemini trine Mars in Libra

On Sunday, Mercury will change signs first, moving into receptive Cancer until July 31. Communication becomes personal with Mercury in Cancer, and your memory will be razor sharp. Don’t be afraid to make decisions with your heart and your mind. Venus in Gemini and Mars in Libra will also be at a perfect trine on this day, allowing love to flow.

Wednesday, July 16: Jupiter in Leo

On Wednesday, Jupiter, the planet of expansion and abundance, will move into Leo, where he’ll remain until August of 2015! This will be an incredible year to shine your most creative self. Love, pleasure and children will bring you extra joy and blessings with Jupiter in Leo. Open your heart!

Friday, July 18: Venus in Cancer

On Friday, Venus enters tender Cancer and remains here until August 12. Matters of the heart become deeply personal and security driven with Venus in Cancer. If someone feels like family, you’re more likely to be willing to nourish a relationship. If your security buttons are triggered, however, you’ll retreat into your shell.

Saturday, July 19: Mercury in Cancer trine Neptune and Sun in Cancer square Mars

On Saturday, Mercury will trine Neptune, allowing imagination to flow. Work on a creative writing, music, art or a film project now. Intuition will also be heightened. Use it! The Sun in Cancer will also rub elbows with Mars so be careful not to act against your own interests.

Planet Tracker for June 28th – Moon in Cancer

Planet Tracker

Moon in Cancer

Jun 26, 2014 to Jun 29, 2014

You might be a little sensitive during this Moon. Unfortunately, everyone else is too. If you find yourself in deep water now, look to your intuition to get you out. The real issues are often hidden on Cancer Moon days, or dealt with sideways. People tend to circle the emotional wagons, reach for their antacids, and privately nurse their wounds. The collective unconscious is four years old and wants its mommy. Go ahead, seek nurture today. It’s like that children’s story where the baby bird, tumbled from its nest, quizzes all comers, “Are you my mother?” Only you’re looking for the World Mother. You’ll find her in a cozy place where you feel safe and loved; in a cup of tea, a mid-day retreat to your bed or a smile from a friend. Whether or not you have issues, it’s a good Moontime for sharpening your emotional intelligence. Distinguish foods that nourish (both real and symbolic) from those that bring heartburn.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Saturday, June 28th

The world seems like a kinder and gentler place now that the Moon is visiting super sensitive Cancer. We can use this time to prepare for the next phase of our lives, but even this relatively quiet day may be emotionally intense because the moody Moon dynamically squares warrior Mars. Although we’re eager to defend our opinions, our choices aren’t necessarily right for anyone else, especially when the Moon joins judgmental Jupiter tonight.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Although you have plenty of errands to run, you still may feel like staying home and hiding out today. The self-protective Cancer Moon asks you to soften your aggressive stance and show more sensitivity to those around you. However, displaying your vulnerability isn’t necessarily comfortable for you warrior Rams. Going on the offense might just be your clever way to avoid feeling fear. Thankfully, there’s no need to act like a superhero; it’s really okay to be human after all.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

Hanging out with friends and family sounds like such a good idea today that you might want to invite even more people to join in the fun. You may think socializing with others can help you stabilize your own shifting feelings. This tactic could work as long as you don’t get distracted by endless gossip and meaningless chatter. Remember to pay attention to your emotions, even if they are making you anxious. Your heart is trying to send you a message; being with those you love allows you to be your authentic self.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

You might not be able to shake off your nervous energy today and your lack of self-control is quite bothersome. You want to make your point, but wonder if you can stand up for your beliefs in the face of opposition. Although your inner voice is telling you to let it go, think again before going silent. Actually, you’re more tenacious than usual and won’t give up without a good fight. You may be better off now if you take a chance and share your feelings. What you don’t say today, you could regret tomorrow.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

Your feelings tend to run quite a bit deeper than others might realize. Nevertheless, you’re at home in your own depths, even if you’re having difficulty communicating your emotions to anyone else. Don’t worry about other people’s expectations. Start slowly and share something easy; then work up to more challenging material later in the day. Be gentle with yourself; getting the ball rolling is enough for now.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Be careful about pushing your beliefs on others today or you may end up provoking an unnecessary argument. However, if you choose to keep your desires to yourself, it certainly doesn’t mean you are lacking in emotions. Nevertheless, it’s a smart idea to take time out of your busy day so you can get in touch with the hidden issues that are waiting in the shadows. A little self-reflection will do you a world of good.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You could feel a bit detached from everyone else today, as if your emotional connections are not very strong. At first, maybe you thought that your intentions were understood, yet you suddenly retreat when you realize that your message was misinterpreted. Keep in mind that it’s common for misunderstandings to occur when you talk about ideas that are beyond the description of language. Don’t take things too personally; your key planet Mercury is playing the role of the trickster now, and it’s best to laugh your way through it. Your sense of humor is your secret weapon.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Your feelings are unusually intense today, yet you may choose not to say a word about your internal drama. You might want to show someone special that you care, but prefer to express it through actions instead of words. However, this doesn’t mean you can’t keep all channels of communication wide open. Just continue to follow your heart, even if it seems awkward at first. Let your passion fuel your momentum to create a memorable moment.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You’re in a contemplative mood today as you reflect on your current conditions and re-evaluate your future plans. However, the watery Cancer Moon can overload you with whirlpools of powerful emotions, intensified now by your key planet Mars. Nevertheless, even if you try to be practical, your heart isn’t listening to your logic. Don’t try to force your feelings into a box; just let them play out on their own accord and allow the cards to fall where they may.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You Archers aren’t typically interested in directing your aim at the inner worlds of emotions. Your intent may be fiery, but your bowstring is currently heavy with the worries of the Cancer Moon. Although you like to point your arrows toward lofty ideas and engage in philosophical debate, you won’t be able to think your way out of this one. Give up the struggle; for once, your feelings just need to be felt.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Your current circumstances grow more complex as the day progresses. You could be lured into a heated interaction with a friend or family member whose feelings are at odds with yours. This irresolvable difference of opinions is frustrating, for the most sensible solution seems so clear to you. Why can’t others set aside their emotional baggage so you can move on with your day? This dilemma might not have an immediate solution. Thankfully, you have another option: you can simply smile and walk away.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You could be feeling so uncharacteristically moody today that your irrational emotions blur the clarity of your perceptions. But fate lurks in the shadows and might spring upon an unsuspecting moment to suddenly transform everything. Don’t sweat what you can’t change; this cosmic surprise can work to your advantage if you roll with the waves and stop thinking that you need to be in control. Set logic aside and let your imagination soar.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Your emotional desires are strong today, motivating you to engage in playful romance in order to get what you want. You often realize that rational thinking doesn’t make sense out of everything, but it’s particularly challenging now to leap into the unknown. Nevertheless, you cannot talk your way to satisfaction. You just have to trust the universe and jump in with your heart wide open. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

New Moon in Cancer Horoscopes

New Moon in Cancer Horoscopes

We’re born again at July’s refreshing New Moon

Jeff JawerJeff Jawer on the topics of new moon, horoscopes, cancer, astrology
The New Moon in the nurturing sign of Cancer on June 27, 2014, presents a fresh emotional start. Clearing out-moded ideas, beliefs and habits, though, is needed to make room for a more fulfilling future.

Family matters and personal history may kick up memories of the past, but the point is to let them go instead of holding on to ancient wounds. Spiritual Neptune’s favorable trine to this Sun-Moon conjunction offers forgiveness for our loved ones and us.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Old family issues may resurface with the sensitive Cancer New Moon in your domestic 4th House of Security. Although you usually don’t like to look back, this is an opportunity to clean up some old personal business that keeps you from reaching your potential. Making cosmetic changes at home is interesting, but the real work is to examine your habitual patterns of thinking and acting to make some key changes there.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

This caring and cautious Cancer New Moon lands in your 3rd House of Communication where it can lead to some delicate conversations. You may be more sensitive about what others say so don’t jump to negative conclusions until you’ve verified your feelings with facts. But it’s also important that you’re emotionally connected with whatever you say to give your message the power and impact you desire.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Money matters could take a turn with this security-conscious New Moon in your 2nd House of Assets. Investing in your abilities through additional education, training, equipment and self-promotion is appropriate now. If you have an entrepreneurial side, this lunation can spur you to find fresh ways to augment your income. It may be best, though, to avoid making any major moves until Mercury turns direct on July 1.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

This New Moon in your sign is an excellent time for a makeover. It lands in your 1st House of Appearance, signaling the need to update your look or your attitude. Dreamy Neptune’s favorable alignment with this Sun-Moon conjunction sparks your imagination, enabling you to visualize the impact you have on others and then making it happen. This planet also brings inspiration through travel and faraway places.

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)

Looking back into your past is an excellent way to prepare yourself for the future. This sensitive Cancer New Moon occurs in your ultra-private 12th House of Spirituality where you’re rewarded for spending more time alone. You need the time and space to review recent events from a fresh perspective. Expanding your understanding and interpretation of them helps you let go of what you don’t need while planting seeds for new dreams.

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)

Relationships with friends and colleagues can push you in a new direction with this lunation in your 11th House of Groups. The conjunction of the energizing Sun and emotional Moon in sensitive Cancer could provoke strong feelings within a team or organization. Taking on a greater role for supporting others or working for a cause in which you believe is a healthy as long as you don’t sacrifice too much of yourself.

Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)

Career issues take the spotlight with this security-conscious Cancer New Moon in your 10th House of Careers. You might be feeling more pressure to perform, which is fine if you’re choosing the tasks that you’re expected to manage. But if you’re just pulling the load for others, take a step back to consider whether this is the best use of your time and energy. Perhaps taking your work life in a new direction is appropriate.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)

This cuddly Cancer New Moon could find you hungry for fresh experiences. It lands in your 9th House of Faraway Places and Higher Learning to stir your mind and spur an itch for adventure. You may discover your true self by looking beyond your culture and personal history, recognizing ideas and values that may seem strange at first but touch your soul. Travel and education help you find your spiritual home.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)

Relationships require tenderness with this watery Cancer New Moon in your 8th House of Deep Sharing. You could attract vulnerable partners who are best handled with compassion and sensitivity. But this is also your opportunity to show your soft side. Uncertainty can, at times, make you more appealing to others, so don’t be shy about expressing your concerns to individuals in whom you have a great deal of trust.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)

Relationships are due for some changes with this emotional Cancer New Moon in your 7th House of Partners. It’s a chance to get closer with the one you’re with or to connection with someone new. Tenderness is the key to bringing harmony and happiness into your personal and professional alliances. Setting aside rigid plans and expectations to address feelings in the here and now is your key to closeness.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)

Paying more attention to your daily routine is called for with this caring Cancer New Moon in your 6th House of Work and Habits. You may be more sensitive on the job, but its purpose is to help you recognize how to fulfill personal needs while being of service to others. This lunation also signals the need to look at your health and, if necessary, to initiate some beneficial new patterns regarding diet and exercise.

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)

This could be a delicious New Moon because it brings fresh energy to your 5th House of Romance and Self-Expression. It occurs in the cautious sign of Cancer so you’re not likely to come on too strong in your desire to present an idea, gain attention or attract a lover. This event is about taking risks; prepare to initiate contact even if you’re nervous about it. An honest, warm and personal approach overcomes any mistakes.
