While Venus is in Cancer, the love nature tends to become more sensitive and protective. Love without emotional involvement and connection isn't fulfilling. If that's the kind of relationship you're involved in, then you're more likely than usual to feel a heavy hole in your heart over the next several weeks.
Same goes for any relationship where you aren't receiving a deep, heartfelt connection. That's because while Venus is in Cancer your emotional IQ will be heightened and the need for responsive security in a relationship will be magnified as well.
The urge to nurture others -- even mother them -- will be stronger while Venus is in Cancer. Family and feeling connected to your roots and heritage will become more important -- and more of a joy now. You'll likely have several positive interactions with your clan and might even decide to throw a dinner party for those closest to you at your place.
It's time to build your nest
Nesting in the comfort of home will provide a great deal of pleasure now, and you may decide to decorate a room in your house or purchase new furniture or other accessories. Home becomes a sanctuary and you'll want to do what you can to ensure that it is your "safe place to fall." If you're in the market to buy or sell, Venus (money) in Cancer (real estate) may be a good time to act.
You may occasionally feel moody and hypersensitive -- particularly when it comes to your close social and romantic relationships. At the same time, however, your heart will open up and you'll want to nourish the soul of anyone you feel connected to. How another person feels will truly be important to you. Making sure they feel good and helping to wipe away their tears will be a priority.
Venus will tour Cancer approximately once every year. This time around, however, Venus will make a few noteworthy links that will add an interesting dimension. Your security needs in love will have an opportunity for fulfillment, but they'll also be tested and there may be a time or two where you'll want to retreat altogether.
A beautiful day for love ...
On June 7, Venus will be at a trine to both Saturn and Neptune. This might be the most beautiful day for a romantic connection -- even a wedding. With Venus in Cancer trine Saturn in Scorpio love will be emotionally satisfying and secure over the long haul. With Venus in Cancer trine Neptune in Pisces you'll feel as if you've found a truly blissful soul mate union.
When it comes to finances, a purchase made while Venus and Saturn are trine can be considered a good, long term investment.
However, love might not be as easy on June 11-12. Intensity will be the key phrase for June 11, as Venus will oppose Pluto. There may be power struggles in love or with a financial situation. If you meet someone around this time there might be an undeniable pull -- a fated attraction that you can't help but feel drawn into and need to explore. It very well could lead to a rich, satisfying romance, but this type of aspect is also famous for bringing on issues of control and even obsessiveness in love. Be aware!
... and a tricky day for finances
In finances, you'll have an urge to make big financial decisions. There might be domestic power struggle over finances. Do your best not to take any risks with your money because the very next day, June 12, brings Venus into a tense square with Uranus.
That spells sudden ups and downs in money. You might make an investment in haste because the promise of reward is great, only to be sorely disappointed soon after. You might also make a move where you tie up your money into a positive investment only to incur a dramatic expense that leaves you feeling stuck and worried.
In love, Venus square Uranus might bring about the potential for an electrifying but fleeting affair. This type of energy doesn't fly well with Venus in Cancer. Cancer is far too emotionally involved for a one night stand. Avoid risky, tasty encounters. You'll only be hurt in the end.
