Venus in Cancer: Nurturing Love

VenusInCancer-Planet&SymbolNone of the transiting planets are in the sign of Cancer now, but I still want to finish the Cancer series by discussing Venus in Cancer (next week I’ll write about the sign of Leo).

The Venus in Cancer person is nurturing and motherly in their affections, and they love to take care of you and help you with your goals.

Being Moon-ruled, they love to nurture the people they care about to help them succeed at their dreams, and they will make a career of helping you to do that because they enjoy watching others grow. They usually love children because Jupiter, the planet that produces children, is exalted in the sign of Cancer.

They are by nature loyal, but if they feel their security is threatened, however, they will withdraw or choose to not get involved with you if you’re still just dating. Openly flirting with others in front of them, threatening to break-up with them every time you’re upset, or having a sexually promiscuous value system, telling them that their feelings aren’t “rational” will make them feel threatened emotionally.

They won’t usually openly confront you about it, but these behaviors won’t make them feel good being with you and they will simply slip away.

The Woman with Venus in Cancer

VenusInCancerThe woman with Venus in Cancer will be verbally encouraging, warm, and heart-centered. If you are sensitive to her feelings, she will make you a heavenly home. Women with Venus in Cancer are amazingly intuitive and will be dead-right about people and situations.

You won’t have any idea how she can know what she knows, but you will come to value it greatly, especially in your career or business.

If you are a man in a relationship with a woman who has Venus in Cancer, you will definitely be more successful in your career, not only because she will support you in it any way she can (she will have a career attitude about being your wife), but because she will create a sensual arena for you to come home to daily that will restore you body and soul.

The woman with Venus in Cancer is very feminine in the way she expresses herself and often in the way she dresses as well. Not always, of course, but she often wears her hair long and prefers clothes that flow over her figure, not too tight, as she likes to be comfortable, but she tends to enjoy being a woman.

FIND OUT all about your Venus, how you love, what you look for in love, and how you can have the best love life possible. Venus is the wife in a man’s chart and you can connect with him more deeply through his Venus when you know what his Venus says about you.

The Man with Venus in Cancer

The man with Venus in Cancer will be chivalrous and will court you in an old-fashioned way with dinner dates, cards, flowers, and other, unexpected, and often, sentimental, gifts. Some of his gifts will appeal to, and delight, the child within you (Jupiter, exalted in the sign of Cancer, represents children).

He is a homebody (the Moon is the natural ruler of the 4th house of the home) and enjoys ordinary daily activities with you; he truly sees it all as a “date.” He won’t mind cooking, doing the dishes, or other housework if it helps you to get further in your business or career. He will provide you with many creature comforts like a good mother would, rubbing your tired feet and bringing you a cup of tea to help you relax.

A Personal Example

My husband has Venus in Cancer in the 8th house. For the man, Venus describes his wife, and since my soul planet is the Moon, his Venus in the sign of Cancer, ruled by the Moon, describes me rather well.

The 8th house is the house of the occult sciences, such as astrology, and the ruler of the 8th house in his birth chart is the Moon, in the 9th with Jupiter. My Moon in Pisces, which is ruled by Jupiter, is aspected by Jupiter too. The 9th house is the house of higher knowledge and counselors, and since I’m a counseling astrologer who loves knowledge (in other words, a perpetual student), I fit that description too.

(I sometimes wonder if I would even be a full-time astrologer if I wasn’t married to him – just one of the many reasons why astrologers believe that who you marry is fated).

An example of one of the sweet things a man with Venus in Cancer will do if you are in a relationship with him, is hide little gifts around the house that you will find in the course of your day.

I was taking a shower one morning and rinsing the shampoo from my hair. I didn’t expect to see anything in the shower that hadn’t been there already since forever, so I was going through the motions by rote and daydreaming about the day ahead of me.

MyBathroomFriendsI glanced down to the little shelf in the shower and was startled to see four little pairs of eyes looking at me. My Venus in Cancer husband had lined up all in a row, a miniature rubber elephant, hippo, duck, and whale. I was so surprised and delighted I laughed out loud. I don’t take showers quite so much by rote anymore! (In our new house, they don’t have a shelf in the shower to sit on, so I put them on the window sill to keep me company when I put on my makeup).

Mars Debilitated in the Sign of Cancer

Both the men and women with Venus in Cancer may have a hard time being assertive or confrontational when needed, as Mars is debilitated in the sign of Cancer (this is not always true – Angelina Jolie has Venus in Cancer, but her Mars is in Aries, and as we all know, she is quite assertive).

To be as supportive of these natives as possible, you could encourage them to say “no” and honor them when they do. They so hate to make anyone feel bad!

Make it safe by not trying to push at the boundary that took so much courage for them to set, or punish them for standing up to you. If they always said “yes,” then after awhile you wouldn’t believe them, or trust them, and that would ruin your love.

Mars is the natural ruler of siblings, especially younger brothers or older sisters, and the person with Venus in Cancer may have problems with siblings even into adulthood. The man with Venus in Cancer will have wife who tends to have trouble or disappointments with siblings.

Men and women with Venus in Cancer are very feeling centered, at least in the relationship area of their lives, so listening to their feelings, not trying to impose your “logic” on them, is how you respect them. They will reward you with gratitude, incredible generosity (Jupiter, exalted in the sign of Cancer, is the planet of generosity and gratitude), and emotional happiness.

FIND OUT all about your Venus, how you love, what you look for in love, and how you can have the best love life possible. Venus is the wife in a man’s chart and you can connect with him more deeply through his Venus when you know what his Venus says about you.
