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.

Friday Is Ruled By Venus

Friday Is Ruled By Venus

 

 

Friday belongs to Venus, both the planet and its namesake Roman goddess of love. This day is sacred to many other gods and goddesses of love such as Eros, Venus, Aphrodite, and the Norse goddess that gave the day its name, Freya. This day of the week is for magical topics such as love, birth, fertility, and romance. Colors for today include pink and aqua. Some suggestions for Friday enchantments would include:

◦Carrying a rose quartz with you today to send out some gentle and loving vibes to those crabby co-workers

◦Working a loving Tarot spell to charm a friend’s pregnancy with good health and safety

◦Working a little flower magic to enchant a single pink rose for friendship and inner beauty, and setting it on your desk. Or try empowering a red rose for passion and placing it in your bedroom.

◦ Burning rose-scented candles to encourage the same effect. Call on Eros to “bring a passion for life” to your days.

◦Sharing a romantic snack with your partner. Feed each other ripe, red strawberries. Those strawberries are love-inducing food, and are sacred to many love goddesses, including today’s patroness, Freya.

Venus in Gemini

Venus in Gemini

Variety is the spice of life and love with Venus in Gemini

Tarotcom StaffTarotcom Staff  on the topics of Venus, love, Gemini, astrology

Oooooh la la. Love planet Venus moves into airy Gemini on June 23, 2014, creating new perspectives on love.

The beauty of Venus entering Gemini is that the winds of attraction may blow in many directions. This is, ideally, a time to discuss relationships with the clarity and openness for which Gemini is known. This Air sign supports the objectivity needed to see complex issues of partnership without emotional distortion.

Venus in Gemini places value on words and communication of all kinds. Attraction to gadgets, books, classes and learning tools may be greater than usual now. Depth is not the strong point here. Both Venus and Gemini can be dilettantes, flitting from one thing to another with barely a moment’s rest. Lovely Venus in this butterfly sign may be a bit flirtatious. Understand that we all need diversions. Enjoy the playfulness possible now, just don’t take it seriously. It’s a time of tasting, rather than testing.

The great gift of this period is a willingness to set aside old rules about what you like and dislike. Life is a great cornucopia of flavors, meant to awaken as much as to comfort. You can use this time to drop some of your social and aesthetic rules. Beauty, pleasure and personal values, you may discover, come in an infinite variety of shapes, colors and sizes.

Unsurprisingly, Venus in Gemini shows up in the birth charts of a wide variety of individuals. There are beauties Naomi Campbell, Uma Thurman, Brooke Shields and Candace Bergen and funny folks Bill Cosby, Joan Rivers, Dudley Moore and Ringo Starr. There are singers ranging from the religious Cat Stevens and Roger McGuinn to socially conscious Bono and style conscious Cher.

Healers Benjamin Spock and Elisabeth Kubler-Ross were born with Venus in Gemini, as was “hurter” Mike Tyson. Artist Frida Kahlo, poet Gary Snyder and designer Georgio Armani add style to this group. Actors Harrison Ford, Al Pacino and Omar Sharif were also born with Venus in Gemini, as were newsman Edward R. Murrow, Virgin tycoon Richard Branson and both Jacqueline and John F. Kennedy.

Your Daily Cosmic Calendar for Tuesday, June 24th

If it seems hard to get your bearings this morning, join the club. Several of yesterday’s adversarial alignments — as well as the void lunar cycle in Taurus that continues until 4:07AM this morning — are probably trying your patience. Once the Moon enters airy, flexible, and multi-talented Gemini (4:07AM), it can be a good day for lighthearted discussions, and exploring arts, crafts and hobbies. However, an emotional shake-up could be in store if you are not fully alert due to Venus making a caustic, 45-degree tie with upheaval-oriented Uranus (5:51AM). Fortunately, the Moon is also giving you a great gift as it forms its monthly conjunction with Venus (6:27AM). The Moon-Venus merger should have enough pizazz to neutralize the shadow side of the Venus-Uranus aspect — enticing you to put a smile on your face, smell the roses, and enjoy the beauty of life all around you. Reinforcement arrives on the scene later on when the Moon forms its monthly union with Juno (12:13PM) while Mercury retrograde parallels Venus (12:55PM). The Moon with Juno highlights interests on the fashion, style, and design horizon while Mercury in league with Venus is always a boost for social and artistic activities. Some of today’s positive alignments can build up your self-confidence, but waiting in the wings early tomorrow to test your resolve is the third Mars-Uranus opposition since December 25, 2013. [Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Daylight Time. Be sure to adjust all times according to your own local time so the alignments noted above will be exact for your location.]

Your Love Horoscopes for the Week of June 23rd

If you’re not feeling a mental connection with your partner this week it’ll be impossible to feel a love connection. That’s because Venus will slide into chatty, clever Gemini on Monday and will remain here until July 18. During this time romance becomes far more intellectual than physical. Additionally, you’ll crave variety and stimulation, so if your relationship has reached that stage where it feels like your favorite pair of worn-in jeans, you may have some work ahead. Mars will oppose Uranus on Wednesday, providing even more atmosphere for change, but the New Moon in Cancer on Friday reminds you that without an emotional link you have nothing at all.

 

Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You might have more than one love interest shaping up — an event that is sure to be interesting! If single, it’ll be a good idea to schedule dates with these two prospective suitors on different evenings so you can give getting to know each person a fair shake. If you’re in a relationship, it’s possible you’ll meet someone who intellectually fascinates you, which may pose some trouble. Don’t overthink an innocent attraction, but if you find yourself starting to think more about this stranger than your lover, there might be a problem.

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

You’ll begin to feel a greater sense of personal confidence this week — a belief in your own talents and abilities that’s impossible to erase. As a result, you’re likely to give off a more attractive vibe, which will surely help you magnetize someone special. Be careful, however, not to send mixed signals to a friend later in the week. He or she might interpret friendly banter as flirting and begin to wonder what’s happening. Don’t play that game.

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

You’re about to transform into the “fairest of them all” this week! On Monday, Venus will enter your sign where she’ll remain until July 18. This planetary shift will grace you with special magnetism, not to mention sensational confidence to help assure you that you can attract anyone your way. You may decide to use this cycle to boost your physical appearance, as well, if you’ve been considering a new wardrobe, hairstyle or even a cosmetic procedure. Either way, your splendor will shine from the inside out — a boost that will surely help your love life.

Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

Romance may become a more private matter to you. If you’re in a relationship or have recently begun to date someone special, it’s likely you’ll prefer to spend time alone with your sweetheart rather than enjoy social engagements or loud, entertainment together. In some cases, there will be a need for discretion in your love life, and if this is the case hopefully it won’t be due to a scandalous reason! Either way, a New Moon in your sign on Friday suggests extra dynamism to help you go after whatever you want.

Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Your social life is about to catch fire! You’re already the center of attention when you’re at a party or other event, but after Monday you’ll also be sought out for your incredibly charming ability to speak as beautifully as you look! Over the next few weeks you’ll also have a spectacular opportunity to find romantic connections through your social ones. A friend of a friend may prove to be your next soul mate — or maybe it’s even that friend! Keep your options open.

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Despite your intentions to hold back, it’s possible you’re developing a crush for your boss or another VIP authority figure connected to your profession. You’ll have a great deal of respect for this person. and you’ll also feel an extraordinary mental connection with him or her. The problem, obviously, is that it might not be a good idea to pursue your feelings for this person. Over the weekend you may feel especially torn. Try going out with your friends for a distraction. And advice.

Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

If single, it’s possible after Monday that you’ll find yourself magnetized by someone who has a background quite unique from yours. This person may be from another part of the world, and if so, the cultural differences will be something you find riveting. If you’re in a relationship, expect a major shake-up on Wednesday. Your partner may shock you with an unanticipated request. Or, it’s possible the two of you will decide to take a time out from one another. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Your erotic side will be aroused this week, thanks to love planet Venus moving through your sexy 8th House of Deep Transformation. Until July 18, you’ll have a stronger desire to merge with your partner physically, emotionally and psychologically. In fact, your capacity for intimacy will be enhanced exponentially. As a result, instead of running away from these deeper connections, you’re more likely to run towards them at warp speed. Your partner will be very happy.

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

With love planet Venus moving into your relationship sector this week, expect a harmonizing influence in your love relationship. You’ll feel extra motivated to enjoy romance with your mate — a gesture he or she will surely appreciate. If you’re single and looking for love, it’s possible that an unexpected encounter with someone special will leave you hot and bothered on Wednesday. In a good way! If you’re the kind of person who has been looking for love in all the wrong places, however, a change of scenery might be long overdue.

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

An office romance may be brewing for you, and if so you’ll be ready to play a delicious game of love! Things may become quite interesting at work this week if you discover that not one, but two, colleagues have a crush on you. The biggest problem you seem to have in matters of the heart this week will be choosing between your many options. There are strong indications however, that someone special is about to become exclusively yours. You’ll feel the vibe this weekend!

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Your love life is about to become a juggling act — in a good way! Venus will move in to your romance sector on Monday, and it will remain in this part of your chart until July 18. Because Venus will be in the dual sign of Gemini, there is every indication that you’ll have multiple suitors crossing your path. You’ll delight in the intellectual connections that you’ll feel with these people, and you’ll certainly want to keep your dating options open. Being tied down isn’t your style anyway.

Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You might not need to travel very far to find love. In fact, your family might have the key to your heart. You and your partner might find exceptional joy this week just by hanging out with your clan. If you’re dating someone new, this will be an ideal week to introduce him or her to your family for the first time. Everyone will fall in love with your new sweetheart! If single, there are strong prospects for you to meet someone new after Friday. Make sure you’re out and about this weekend!

Your Daily Cosmic Calendar for Monday, June 23

Yesterday was one of those fairly rare 24-hour time-periods when the cosmos acts gently and sensitively — trying to assuage human wounds and pains — following several days of abrupt and discordant celestial mayhem. Now you have to deal with another cycle of stellar mischief-making — mainly today and Wednesday — as planetary turbulence outweighs hearty encouragement. You can find happiness, healing, and solace right now as Venus forms an inspirational, 72-degree rapport with Chiron (12:37AM). However, the monthly Moon opposition to Saturn — from Taurus to Scorpio — at 4:00AM is more of a struggle regarding key relationships than an asset. Venus entering Gemini (5:35AM) until July 18 can be a feather in your cap — especially as it helps to open communicant channels that may have been blocked during the current Mercury retrograde cycle. A trio of challenges comes from the Sun forming a frictional, 135-degree tie with Saturn (11:45AM), the Moon in Taurus beginning a void cycle at 6:50PM that lasts until 4:07AM tomorrow, and Mars provoking Venus via an abrasive, 135-degree link-up (10:02PM). Look to escape from the wrath of the heavenly titans as Ceres parallels Chiron (11:47PM). Be a nurturing force on the side of goodwill to bring estranged or disgruntled family members back to the bargaining table. Strive to put old animosities in mothballs. [Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Daylight Time. Be sure to adjust all times according to your own local time so the alignments noted above will be exact for your location.]

Get A Jump On Tomorrow, Your Horoscopes for June 18th

We may be swept up in a swirl of fantasies as our dreams seep into the daylight hours. The psychic Pisces Moon melts away the hard edges of reality, especially during her early morning hook-up with blurry Neptune. Although the mists of illusion might prevent us from seeing what’s next, a supportive alignment between sensual Venus and excessive Jupiter makes everything appear better than it actually is. Luckily, clarity returns later in the day.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You’re extremely confident about your life now, but someone might say something that tugs on your conscience. Although you may not have any reasons to feel guilty, you dislike being misunderstood. Naturally, you want to clarify your position before moving on, so don’t put off important communication for a later date. Attend to any unresolved issues as quickly as you can, so you are ready for the action-packed times ahead.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

Positive feedback from your friends and colleagues strengthens your feelings and lifts your spirits today. Luckily, your key planet Venus receives an emotional boost from generous Jupiter, encouraging you to feel even better about yourself and those you love. However, this is no time to stand on ceremony or harbor false pride; willingly accept recognition and support from others when it’s offered, even if you didn’t ask for it. Don’t resist the inevitable; it’s your turn to shine.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

It seems as if you’re on an energetic roll now. Or, maybe, you think you should be preparing for something really big that’s just around the next corner. You can sense change is in the air, even if worries or fears linger at the edge of your awareness. Today’s thoughts shape tomorrow’s destiny, so visualize the most amazing possibilities in front of you. Tying up loose ends from your past helps to prevent anything from standing in the way of your future.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

Even if your life seems to be unfolding as planned, you still aren’t sure that you should trust any good news you hear today. Unfortunately, you might also learn something that raises your concern. You may overcompensate by gathering all the information you can find to justify your positive perspective. However, you really don’t need any more data; just make a choice and then take a few healthy steps in the direction you want to go. Follow your heart and don’t look back.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Your friends and associates ride to your rescue just in the nick of time, even if you committed to more than you can possibly deliver now. Fortunately, they bring you more than good cheer and emotional support; your allies are also willing to volunteer a fair amount of hard work. Don’t be greedy about personal profit or recognition since it’s karmically crucial to share the rewards with those who contribute to your success. In the meantime, showing your appreciation makes everyone feel like part of the team.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Working extra hard to put everything in order might be a lost cause today, especially if other people seem to be preoccupied with their own dreams. It sounds like a practical idea to prioritize your goals and then make a list of the steps needed to reach them. Unfortunately, concrete plans aren’t all that useful because so much seems to be occurring at once, leaving little time for detailed analysis. Let go and trust your intuition; acting on your feelings will bring you as much success now as any other strategy.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You can see the positive in almost every situation today, even on the job, as aesthetically pleasing Venus harmonizes with propitious Jupiter in your 10th House of Career. You might be considered for a promotion or, at least, acknowledged for your hard work. Your optimism is on the rise now, along with your income potential. Just don’t be presumptuous and expect too much too soon. Nevertheless, set sail with your ambitions; rest assured that the winds of positive change are blowing in your direction.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You could miss an unexpected opportunity to share an amazing experience with a close friend today if you overreact to what is said. There is little doubt that this is a strange day, but your morning apprehension need not detract from the beauty that you perceive around you. Instead of seeking depth and intensity now, keep the mood light and easy so you can relax and enjoy yourself. Ultimately, the potential for pleasure abounds if you release your fears and open your heart.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Instead of escaping from your daily routine, you prefer exploring alternatives to make your job more fun — and that could include other people. Although everyone around you seems to be submerged in their own worlds, you wish they had more time for you. Thankfully, beneficent Jupiter is supporting resourceful Venus in your 6th House of Work, enabling you to enjoy meeting your obligations rather than avoiding them. Don’t worry about anyone else; honoring your commitments ultimately brings its own kind of quiet satisfaction.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You may be up for a raise or, perhaps, you simply receive an appreciative thanks from someone at work as lucky Jupiter harmonizes with lovely Venus in your 2nd House of Money today. Naturally, a boost in your salary is wonderful, but a heartfelt acknowledgment from your boss is validating, too. However, you need to come to terms with the simple fact that your contribution is of considerable value. Don’t be shy about accepting praise now; displaying too much doubt can cause you to miss a chance to bask in the limelight and take pride in your work.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You believe your aim is true today and you’re right on target; nevertheless, your unflagging optimism may seem overwhelming to everyone else. Although you are the epitome of the power of positive thinking now, someone might try to rain on your parade. There’s no need to give away your authority. Being strong and sensitive in your approach enables you to make room for others who are struggling to hold their position, too.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You could be lost in a hazy dream world, so it’s wise to pinch yourself a few times during the day just to remind yourself that you’re actually awake. Although you probably have good cause for your rosy outlook, it’s important to maintain a clear sense of reality now or you might set yourself up for disappointment later on. Avoiding extremes is a challenging task today unless you have someone in your life that you trust enough to use as a sounding board. Asking for advice is one thing, but following it is another.
