What Venus in Cancer Means For Your Love Life

What Venus in Cancer Means For Your Love Life

Venus in Cancer: June 17th-July 11th


Venus in Cancer opens us up to matters of the heart, as we shift from Geminis’ linguistic love language and soften, our empathy and compassion amplified by the first water sign. If Venus in Gemini wanted variety and stimulation, Venus in Cancer yearns for comfort and emotional reciprocity. We are over taking risks, and ready for retreat. Cancer, ruled by the Moon, is associated with our early childhoods, femininity, and the home. Just like a Crab carries home with it, we are encouraged to protect our sensitivity and gravitate to places that offer us nourishment. Cancer shows us how to reparent ourselves, and offers subtle clues about how to tend to our internal world. Our feelings become flags, guiding us toward the love built to last. The atmosphere is compassionate and careful, and we may find ourselves nostalgically revisiting past connections, retracing familiar ground. 


As the Moon is the fastest-moving celestial body, we may find ourselves prone to waning moods. Venus in Cancer can reveal our early childhood wounding, bringing up feelings of neglect or perceived lapses in reciprocal action. Watch out for regressing into old relationships: as during this transit, a proclivity to reconnect with old friends and lovers is heightened, as counterparts from our past reek back around. 


It’s the perfect time for stay-at-home dates, as no sign does domestication as well as the Cancer. Think of Nara Smith’s resourceful kitchen etiquette or Lana Del Rey’s nostalgic aesthetics. We recycle old fashion ensembles and throw on a familiar flick. Venus in Cancer is a slow love affair, as this sign knows that true connection requires both trust and patience. Affection is shown through heart-to-heart conversations, revealing one’s origin stories, and making memories. Throughout this transit, we are encouraged to care for others maternally, through lending an ear, cooking our favorite comfort food, and asking for cuddles. Secluded evenings and late morning lie-ins facilitate the feel-good energy Venus in Cancer requires.
