Venus in Cancer: Home is Where the Heart Is

Venus in Cancer: Home is Where the Heart Is
With back-to-school preparations and the hectic energy of the fall season, it can be hard to remember to tend to the fires of hearth and home. But not to worry: Venus in Cancer is inspiring a renewed focus on family, food and nurturing of the inner self. The planet of love (Venus) is in the Water sign (Cancer) now through September 7, helping us keep the home fires burning -- both inside and out.

Planetary transits involving Cancer offer the opportunity to connect with our deepest emotions and discover exactly what nourishes us. This may mean a home-cooked meal or a night out with friends, but by exploring what “feeds” you and gives you more energy, you can keep your batteries charged and avoid feeling over-extended and resentful of others’ demands.

Air Signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius)
These signs will take comfort in home gatherings now. Hosting a game night, an interesting speaker or having friends over to enjoy other mentally stimulating activities will keep Air signs feeling alive and at their peak. Smaller gatherings with close friends are emphasized, as Venus in Cancer encourages intimacy and depth.

Fire Signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius)
Watery Venus in Cancer may feel a little challenging to Fire signs, but this transit actually offers the perfect antidote to burnout, which these action-oriented signs can experience. Use this Venus transit to re-connect with your passion, exploring what drives and motivates you. You may feel the need to amp up your exercise routines during this time, or take a trip that inspires you to try something new.

Water Signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces)
Like a drink of cool water, Venus in Cancer offers a time of refreshment and renewal for these signs. Drink deeply from the well of tranquility that this transit offers, making your home one of retreat and comfort, and connecting to your inner source by spending time alone in meditation or quiet contemplation.

Earth Signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn)
Venus in Cancer offers a balance to Earth signs, helping them to temper their hard-working practicality with a measure of comfort and sustenance. Spend time with family and loved ones, allowing your emotions to emerge in a safe and harmonious environment. You will also take comfort in decorating or enhancing your home in a way that leads to greater pleasure and enjoyment.
