On July 3, 2019, Venus enters Cancer at 11:18am PST.
“Venus is the planet of love, beauty and pleasure, governing everything from your spending habits and values to your relationships and overall seduction style. But what happens when the planet of sugar, spice, and everything nice travels through a hypersensitive sign like Cancer? Well, Venus thrives when in the sign of Cancer, as this cardinal sign is both warm-hearted, empathic, and nurturing with others. Needless to say, this is an excellent time to express your affections and indulge in your feels. Spending time with your loved ones and/or catching up with your closest friends is also a must. Oh, and family heirlooms, homemade meals, and all things nostalgic are some of Venus in Cancer's favorite things. However, don't be fooled by Venus' irresistibly sweet demeanor, as the planet of love will be making contact with Pluto in Capricorn on 7/20. Plus, with the nodes of fate in the mix, the cosmos will be asking us to dig deep and look inward in order to uncover the emotional wounds existing within our current relationships. And in the midst of this, we're also releasing and restructuring previously-set structures and false hierarchies, such as toxic patriarchy. So this smoldering aspect might very well spark jealousy, power thrills, suspicion, and manipulation within your relationships. It's important to recognize where these insecurities are coming from. Are they wounds you've been carrying on behalf of your ancestors since your mother's womb? Are your current desires coming from a place of love? Or are you selfishly going out of your way to control your surroundings? The eclipse saga continues...”
