With Venus’s move into Cancer July 4, the cosmos is nudging us to face our financial insecurities. Though the Crab is compassionate, they have a reputation for being tightfisted. Now is the time to learn how to hold on to money without being stingy. Saving rather than spending is the trend now, as we explore values related to home, family, nurturing and creativity.
When money changes hands during this Venus-Cancer transit, it’s likely to either related to food or based on feelings rather than logic. Try to curb any random shopping impulses and instead use Cancer’s drive to gather resources for the future.
Cancer is a Water sign with deep attachments to the past and history in general, so antiques, old homes and family heirlooms are all good areas to invest in now. Because Cancer is family-oriented, we may also find ourselves drawn to splurge a bit on our families.
This can be a great time to launch a restaurant, food truck or other business related to cooking and eating. If you’ve ever had any interest in the culinary arts, explore further now!
Cancer is also associated with children and the home, so real estate, interior decorating, teaching and midwifery could lend new career opportunities. If you’re already practicing in one of these fields, you may reach new heights in the workplace.
Dreams are another realm where Cancer inspires. Put your nightly visions to work by writing down a question and placing it under your pillow. Then, set an intention to have a dream about the answer. Though you might not get a straight answer, you’ll probably find some light will be shed on the problem.
Mysterious and wise, Cancer reveals secrets in the form of symbols. As Venus moves through this intuitive sign, we can tap into our own intuition and allow it to guide us into the future. The more we rely on our own inner wisdom, the greater our chance of success. This is the time to cultivate our inner world, preparing and paving the way for the external structure we hope to create.
