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.

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.
