Cancer is arguably the most domestic sign of the zodiac, so whenever a planet energizes the sign of the Crab, home themes are bound to be highlighted. With Venus, the planet of love and beauty, residing in Cancer between August 7 - September 6, the cosmos offers you a chance to not only make your living space more beautiful, but to sweeten relationships at home!
The energy that comes from this once-annual transit encourages redecoration and cosmetic renovation. Venus craves balance and comfort, so now is a terrific time to create a list of changes you'd like to make to your living space. Categorize your best ideas according to needs and wants -- and then start fulfilling your domestic wish list!
Even the smallest changes, such as splurging on fresh flowers or hanging a new art piece, can help refresh the energy in your living space. Consider your preferred colors versus those you already use, then make any necessary adjustments to ensure that you're surrounded by pleasant images and comfortable furnishings.
With Cancer's family-first attitude, you'll also find it easier to prioritize quality time with relatives. Showing your appreciation for family and those you live with is particularly important now, so why not host a dinner party for people you've lost touch with? Even something as quick and easy as sending an "I'm thinking about you" email to a dear friend will help brighten your emotional space.
Venus-in-Cancer presents a wonderful opportunity to get to the heart of what family and home mean to you. Now is the best possible time to experience all the enjoyment and happiness you can in these precious areas of your life!
