Venus in Cancer may have you questioning what home and family mean to you. You’ll want to take a deeper look at the people who you depend on for emotional nourishment and if you’re truly getting your needs met in your relationships.

The role of emotions also seems to take precedence over the course of this month. It is simply impossible to hide how you are feeling, and you’ll want to express your deepest emotions to those around you.

This month can feel particularly vulnerable, especially if you’re not used to being so emotional, but this is also an opportunity for you to learn to live more openly and see that there is strength in vulnerability.

You want to nurture and take care of the people you love during this time, so don’t be too surprised when you get extra sentimental and search for comfort from those closest to you. After all the flirting this past month when Venus was in Gemini, it’s now time to go deeper and build a strong connection with one particular person.

Leo, you’re so used to being center stage and drawing all the attention to you, but you just don’t feel up for that when Venus is in Cancer. You feel a great need for rest and recuperation after a long while of being social and on the go. No wonder your social batteries are feeling a little low.

You’re feeling really private and secretive about your love life. Perhaps you have met someone you have powerful feelings for, but it just feels a little more exciting keeping him a secret, especially as you figure out where things are going in the relationship.

It could very well be that you like him so much that you feel you want to protect the relationship a bit from the outside world. Whatever the reason is, it is right for you! But knowing what you’re really like, Leo, he’ll be appearing on your social media in no time.

Sometimes it’s good to keep the people you care most about a little protected because relationships change once other people and their opinions get involved. So, enjoy these quiet moments together, because I suspect when Venus enters your sign, things are going to be pretty full on.

This month you’ll likely realize that the feeling of friendship is important for you in your romantic life. You want the trust, fun, and companionship you experience with a friend with the man you are romantically involved with.

Libra, you love status and hardworking men who you know can spoil you with luxury. This is no secret, but for some reason, your boss seems to be getting hotter and hotter by the day. It’s safe to say you have a crush.

So, it makes sense that you’re feeling more attracted to men who have their life together. This might not be your usual type, but who knows, you might be pleasantly surprised when you go on a date with an older gentleman.

It’s good to explore your tastes and evolve your opinions of what you think you find attractive. But let’s be honest, what isn’t to like about a man who is ambitious, hardworking, and successful? You might just meet your match over this transit, Libra.

Why is Venus in Cancer So Sensitive, Sentimental, and Overwhelming?

Keep in mind that the planet Venus rules over our values and relationships. The sign of Cancer is related to those ideas through the signs of Taurus and Libra as the main Venus areas.

In the case of Taurus, values are seen, from the perspective of Venus in Cancer, as something supportive that should come from the social circles. Therefore, social justice, help, and understanding are truly important for Venus in Cancer.

On the other hand, the sign of Libra, from where the ideas of relationships come for Cancerian Venus will be placed in the field of home, motherly figure, and properties.

This means that Venus in Cancer will grow up surrounded and with a powerful idea that partnerships are everything and that a person can’t achieve happiness and even existence without the help of their closest ones, meaning parents, at an early age, and a marital partner later on in life.

When it comes to enjoyment or pleasure, this Venus in Cancer will always feel uplifted by the emotional or patriotic music, they will love to paint, and romantic atmosphere and sensual touch will have a way greater importance than the actual sexual act.

These women often seek calm, strong, and successful men, desiring protection and stability for their future family. In relationships, they are faithful and attached, but may struggle to heal from emotional pain. They are open to new experiences in marriage but may have fears about extramarital affairs.

Their strengths lie in their kindness and nurturing nature, while their weaknesses include being overly emotional and insecure, often living through emotional drama.

What is a Venus in Cancer Man Like?

The Venus in Cancer man is attracted to gentle, feminine women and prefers a homely atmosphere. He may struggle with commitment and past relationships. He seeks a strong partner who can provide leadership and handle external challenges.

FAQs About Venus in Cancer: Getting to Know Venus in Cancer Better

Is Venus in Cancer emotional?

In Astrology, Venus in Cancer is ruled by the Moon which can be anywhere in the horoscope chart. Therefore, the position of the Moon will determine the attitude and behavior of this planet, although, in the majority of cases, Venus will tend to be overly emotional, and in many cases, to resolve all her emotional issues through overindulging in foods, and some rarer cases, in alcohol.

The fluctuation of emotions and thoughts is ever-present even if nothing stressful is going on, but this Cancerian Venus will have the inner need to create little dramas to be able to feel alive.

Is Venus in Cancer bad?

Venus in Cancer is not bad by any means, they simply express the symbolism of their ruler Moon. The individual will deeply love or hate anything, or radically change feelings all of a sudden.

And in this sense, they could easily become destructive or self-destructive when things are not going according to, not to their plans, but their feelings. They are not as vengeful as Venus in Scorpio, but nevertheless, they have the ability to create a true mess, or in some cases, a true hell out of anyone’s life.

The destructive style of Venus in Cancer is to exhaust the “enemy” through passive-aggressive expressions or prolonged periods of silence. They won’t yell, but their calm voice or not communicating at all will be equally threatening.

Is Venus in Cancer jealous?

Venus in Cancer is territorial, and in this sense, yes, they can be very jealous if something is endangering their “possessions.”. Venus in Cancer will rely heavily on their intuition, and through the “certain feeling” they will know that things are wrong, or just starting to develop in the wrong direction.

From that point on, the Venus in Cancer will use their emotional turmoil to show their partner that they are dissatisfied and demand some serious answers. And this will consequently produce more drama, more misunderstandings, or deepen the crack between the two of them.

So, yes, this Venus in Cancer is jealous, but not able to clearly communicate their concerns.

How does Venus in Cancer flirt?

Venus in Cancer flirts by showing its affective side. And in their case, this is always related to comfort and nutrition. They will care deeply if the person they are interested in is warm enough, cold enough, healthy enough, rested enough, and especially, this person mustn’t be hungry or thirsty at any moment of their existence.

This will make some odd situations where they will make cookies, or even complete dinner for someone that they don’t know so well, and many men will use this emotional weakness. They will eat for free or sleepover, and then leave because they were the first ones to show strong affection through their “services” and without making that particular man work hard to pursue them.

Is Venus in Cancer good?

Venus in Cancer surely possesses a positive attitude and a caring nature. Above all other Zodiac signs, this placement will truly care for other people, in general, and especially for the elderly, children, and all those in need. This Venus will never let a hungry person just pass by without offering any food they have handy at that moment.

Venus in Cancer also values kindness and a simple approach to life, and except something or someone is openly attacking them, their family and loved ones, or their nation. They will be open and polite, and always ready to give a helping hand.

Does Venus in Cancer cheat?

Generally speaking, Venus in Cancer is not the cheating type. Their lover, family, or anything else that can be seen as their emotional or psychological territory will be highly valued and respected in their eyes and hearts. And they will do anything to keep the purity of those feelings, for sure.

On the other hand, if this Venus in Cancer is negatively affected by the positions of Uranus or Neptune, then they could easily slip and make a mistake, thinking that someone new is their true soul mate, that this is now or never situation, and that their angel or knight in shining armor finally appeared. And usually, those illusions will backfire, leaving them broken and hard to pull from emotional trauma for a long time.

  4. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I have been using your method and my Sagitarius guy is so turned around and so turned on!!

  5. Thank you, I am a Scorpio who has been struggling in relationships. Men I meet are just childish and talk about sex every second they open their damn mouths. That just awaken my fierce scorpio sting as love is more than letting my panties down. Believe me am talking about 50+ age group.

    Yesterday I hooked with some 45yrs old guy and I am 52 in October who just immediately gave me butterflies in my tummy. His maturity level and conversation simply turned the fire in me. Ironically he is a Pisces born 12 April and me 26 October.

    I am so excited and we both can’t wait for our second date which he proposes a weekend away for us.

    Am I drawn to this younger version of men as my 2 previous relationship were with a 44 and 46 year old. They were the best by far since my divorce, now am hitting a 45 yrs which sounds exciting and he wants a long term relationship and to settle down.

  6. I am a 65 year Sag woman in a situation ship with a 65 year Cancer man. Neither of us ever intend to remarry and it can be a lot of fun. But he is most cautious when it comes to public displays of affection, which is hard only ego. Can this work much longer?

  7. Last month was a disaster before I got your predictions and your guidance. I had already messed up my relationship with my boyfriend and we are no longer together, however I wished we were. I love him but I don’t know what to do. Do you have any advice for me because there is other female involved I do believe at this time. I feel emotionally Torn to Pieces. His sign is “cancer”! And there might be another female “Taurus” involved, but not sure!

    1. Dear Margaret,

      That is a good Venus placement! Security matters here as well as care and understanding.
      You are tender and kind and need to be treated that way and you will return with understanding and protection. 

      Sending Love to you!
