Venus in Cancer will make you cuddly and romantic

Let’s get intimate!

Venus, the planet of relationships and attraction, will dive into the tide pools of Cancer from July 17 until August 11, 2022. Every single zodiac sign will receive a cosmic bounty of blessings.

Venus, the planet of beauty, dances in each zodiac sign for just under a month every single year. As she cozies up in Cancer, she will put us in touch with our emotions and need for affection. This may bring out a more sensual, nurturing and domestic vibration within us collectively.

It’s time to be devoted! During Venus’s transit of Cancer, we will crave stability and security in our lives—especially in regards to our emotions. Showing our loyalty and love through gifts and acts of service will be important to us during this time. Being dedicated, warm and kind will allow our personal connections to flourish and grow.

Listening to others, being in touch with our spirits and listening to our intuition will be important to us, as well. This is an excellent time to have a heart-to-heart with someone, as there is a higher likelihood of finding a rapport. Treating others with sensitivity and empathy will allow us to feel greater trust and communication with others. Tapping into the full extent of emotions during Venus’s sail through this Water sign can help us to be more reflective and insightful.

However, a shadow side to this period may be vast turbulence triggered by overwhelming emotions, insecurity or hypersensitivity. We may also feel victimized, defensive or overprotective. Obsessing over the past and nostalgia may also take effect. It is best to balance logic with emotion during this period.
