While Cancer overall is a sign that brings a lot of sensitivity it could put us all on a path that is quite rocky. Until recently Venus was in the sign Gemini and while it held powerful energies, it doesn’t have anything on what we’re currently facing.
Venus is the planet that rules over love and relationships which with the energies of Cancer make things quite interesting. These energies will be powerful in how they influence our lives and well, the more we are looking for the more complicated things might become. Sure, we are all going to be gaining a bit of insight, but we’re also going to be facing some confusion within.
Tarot.com wrote as follows about the energies we face when Venus is in Cancer:
Venus is the planet of sensitivity and affection, while Cancer is the most nurturing zodiac sign. When these two get together it creates the potential for greater intimacy, and the chance to build up our romantic relationships. We’ll want to stay at home and bond, cuddle, and talk about our feelings. If your love life has been stalled, or if you’ve been dating a commitment-phobe, things may start looking up during this time.
The urge to care for others — even mother them — will be stronger while Venus is in Cancer. Family and feeling connected to your roots will become more important and more fulfilling during this time. Nesting will provide a great deal of pleasure now, and you may decide to decorate a room in your house or purchase new furniture or decor. Your home will be your sanctuary, and you’ll want to do what you can to ensure that it is a safe space for you. If you’re in the market to buy or sell, Venus (the planet of money) in Cancer (related to real estate) may be a good time to act.
Don’t be surprised if you feel a bit moody and emotionally delicate when Venus is in Cancer, especially when it comes to your friendships and romantic relationships. This transit can leave us feeling more sensitive than usual, opening us up to the possibility of being wounded emotionally. Cancer’s self-protective nature is to withdraw and hide when this happens, so be mindful of that possibility. The upside to this level of vulnerability is that your heart will be wide open, allowing you to attract and give love more easily.
As you can see, things are not always what they seem. While you will be more vulnerable, you’ll also be more willing to open up which could be a good new thing for you. I know, things might feel hectic but overall these energies will be full of growth for us all.
When Venus is in Cancer we usually end up doing a lot of soul-searching which is fine. The more you do this the more you get to know yourself which is never a bad thing. Sure, times can be hard and 2020 has been a serious rough patch so far but things are beginning to look up. While progress is slow, it is present.
Don’t be afraid to let your sensitive or sentimental side show right now, let these energies push you towards the people you need to be around. That being said, do keep in mind that sometimes people are brought before us so that we can see something in them and that something isn’t always as positive as we would like for it to be. Toxic people right now will be making themselves known more and more.
While this transit might not be too intense or overwhelming, it is one to be aware of. There is a lot going on in the celestial world and this just adds to the mixture. I for one am excited but also a bit on edge.
