What Venus In Cancer Means For Each Zodiac Sign

Venus entered the sign of Cancer on August 7 and will remain there until September 6. Venus in Gemini has been with us since April 3, and it will finally make its exit. Our focus will go from expressing love through communicating to feeling the grounding passion associated with the sign of Cancer. In Gemini, we experienced the playfulness of Venus. The issues here revolve around the opposition that Venus will create with Saturn and Pluto. There is also the dreaded square that Venus will make with Mars in Aries, creating more tension and frustration and adding onto the loneliness and isolation we may experience.

We will feel the tension with people we know. Friendships and romantic relationships might be strained. The ups and downs that accompany this transit will make us all feel the stress and pressure. Nevertheless, that will begin to manifest towards the end of the transit as the degrees begin to close in. Venus will still create some joyous moments for us. We have felt the impact of the Saturn, Jupiter, and Pluto transit since the beginning of the year. We are somewhat used to this new normal. This transit will be a moment of reflection.

Venus in Gemini wants to explore, to learn and experience passions through mental stimulation, while Venus in Cancer seeks stability, nurturing, and expressing love through endless devotion. Emotions will be strong this transit because Venus in water likes to feel and are bound by a deep connection. Get ready for the emotional journey to self-discovery.


You are connecting with your roots this transit as Venus in Cancer as it provides a grounding force in your life. With Mars in your sign, it is best to check the ego when you cannot get your way or when things appear to keep slowing during these Capricorn transits with Saturn, Pluto, and Jupiter. Venus reminds you that your foundation is imperative before reaching your next phase. During this transit, you can try to exercise more diplomacy and bring that peaceful energy to your home and surroundings. If there are any conflicts with partners or family members at this time, remember to breathe in and out.


Venus in Cancer will make your words flourish during this transit. You will be more willing to step out of your comfort zone when you are expressing yourself because you will have a confidence boost, which is necessary, since Mars is currently hidden for you, so tapping into that energy will be more frustrating compared to Venus. When the Venus opposition with the Capricorn stellium happens, you will be more inclined to be forceful with getting your point across. This can take an emotional toll, especially if you aren’t getting your way. Remember to relax during this transit and enjoy the magic you can conjure with words.


Venus, which has been in your sign since April, will finally exit and make its way to the sign of Cancer. Your karmic wounds will begin to heal as you consider new methods of exerting your Venusian energies through self-care and splurging.

You might feel the hurt, but it will be a time where you will feel comfortable in yourself, and the confidence will allow you to keep pushing forward. Channel the energy to create successes that will contribute to your stability.


Mercury has exited your sign and now Venus enters.

During this transit, you will be fine with feeling the pleasures and comforts in a way that brings you peace and emotional security. Venus in Cancer will be a different energy from the Gemini one, where you might have felt more focused on socializing and connecting with friends and family. Things will begin to shift during this upcoming transit as you bring the attention back to your needs but from a more private setting. With the Sun and Mercury still in your sign, you will still feel radiant and vibrant, but Venus has you emotionally content even when you are away from the spotlight and alone.


One of those transits that will force you to come out of your shell (briefly). You might be shying away from the limelight now, but Venus makes you more comfortable in your expression. This can be a good time for single Virgos to meet someone through their social circles (if they want to). Venus in Cancer can make you nostalgic for the past, and those new connections might have you reminiscing about exes. Nevertheless, it will be a transit that will have you experiencing both the positives and negatives. You will still feel the pressures and wanting to isolate due to the Capricorn stellium, but you will feel empowered to still take your chances by having fun and trying to find love.
