Venus enters into Cancer on June 17th until July 12th, and it’s going to feel like it’s all about securing what is valuable and eliminating what isn’t! Saturn is also making it’s second square to Neptune this day; further bringing that feeling of needing structure and security to be long lasting, but wanting to meet starry-eyed expectations and actually being able to deliver on them might bring a hinderance. If you’ve felt you were pouring water into a bucket with holes, you’ll be able to see how that way of doing things isn’t serving any purpose or bringing the changes needed and how to better dive into your pool of resources.
While Venus thrived on the energy of others while in Gemini, now in Cancer she’s wants to build some self-reliance to become Queen of the castle! The Sun however, is still holding onto the Gemini energy for a couple more days until it enters Cancer on the 20th. Memories may come rushing in at this time and the emotional range will be vastly DEEP; churning like the tides from love/hate, pleasure/pain, logic/emotion, etc.. Subconsciously and instinctively reacting to situations leads to the trust in your ability to make decisions and how you’re needing to deal with others. The persistent and tenacious energy can lend to wholehearted nurturing, but if not safeguarded can lead to overpowering demands that feel like water eroding rock.
Venus also has phases, like the Moon and she recently reached her Full cycle on June 6th at 16º Gemini 36’. So while she may have been further from the Earth, she was closer to the Sun and receiving the light to shine on what is truly important to the beauty of life. The Sabian Symbol at this time is; 17º Gemini: The head of a robust youth changes into that of a mature thinker.
This natural progression from charming Mercurial participation in outer superficial associations gives way to an intense realization of deeper encouragement of self nurturing. Growth will come in crabwise waves, bringing with it ways to cultivate the inborn wisdom into seasoned, experienced realities for one and all.
Venus trine Neptune: Fantasies and daydreams can easily lead to indulging in comfort. Be careful putting too much significance in things of little substance. Impermanence is heightened and activities feel done more with compassion, but may lead to little results.
Venus opposition Pluto: Intense emotions come through from concealed conflicts. Time to get the crab out of the shell and deal with the real issues under the surface before they get more out of hand. Consequences will be long lasting whether dealt with now or later.
Venus sextile Jupiter: Life feels blissful and abundant. Hope and faith bring about positive attitudes of manifesting the next steps easily. Social events feel more welcoming and time spent with others leads to more understanding and connectedness.
Venus trine Mars: Balancing wants and needs seems like a piece of cake! Your passions lead the way as you look to help and be of assistance. Action comes about fluidly in making things more appealing in tasks for yourself and others.
Venus square Uranus: Patience and flexibility in dealing with others is tested. Look for new experiences and ways of doing things, but be careful not to lose sight or under appreciate what you already have as emotions are unstable and arguments are easy to come by today!
