On June 2 Venus leaves witty Gemini for the waters of Cancer. Here she softens and becomes far more sensitive to other people’s feelings. No more edgy humor to attract attention now, this Venus prefers gentle gestures and warm smiles.
Venus in Cancer is the most domestic of the water sign Venuses. She is kinder and far less intense than Scorpio, and less given to fantasy than Pisces. Her style tends to be on the traditional side in both appearance and relationships. This can cause internal dissonance if the Venus in Cancer person has Sun, Moon or Rising in say quirky Aquarius or adventurous Aries.
Men with Venus in Cancer are often good about voluntarily doing housework or taking care of the children. They prefer women who are comfortable in the kitchen as well as the boardroom. If you need help, it will bring out their protective side . . . something most Cancers have. Even the bachelors usually turn their living quarters into something that feels homey.
If you are interested in someone with this Venus keep in mind they enjoy feeling wanted and needed more than most. Be sure to remember your manners and say “please” and “thank you” . . . especially if they offer to feed you!
Venus in Cancer aspected by Neptune can have a Pisces feel whilst Pluto aspects bring out a Scorpio vibe. If you have Saturn aspecting your Venus in Cancer there might Capricorn overtones whilst Mars brings out her inner Aries. Uranus aspects are jarring to this conventional Venus, pushing her to be more independent than she may like. Jupiter aspects might encourage enjoying good food a little too much.
Venus will be in Cancer from June 2 until June 27. During that time she will be part of a Grand Trine with Saturn in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces, exact on June 7. If you need to make amends with family this is a great influence for smoothing the way.
