When Venus sails sweetly through Cancer, the fourth sign of the zodiac, what does it mean for the collective?

In Cancer the sign of the crab, we tend to gravitate towards all things cozy and secure – under this astrology, it really matters that your containers for love are feeling strong and safe. This means that doing the same old things with your love interest – whether it’s going out to a familiar restaurant, sitting at the same corner seat in the bar around the corner, or simply sharing your favorite take out in front of a romantic comedy you’ve already seen a dozen times – will feel like heaven. BUT.. don’t mistake this for inactivity. Like the other cardinal signs (Aries, Libra, and Capricorn) Cancer holds an initiating energy, which means that your love life needs to feel like it’s actually going somewhere. Progress, please!

Venus in Cancer can also bring out a desire to give affection, so if you’re S.O. starts getting a little more touchy-feely than usual, blame the celestial spheres! But those extra hugs and kisses are likely to be exactly what you need – physical care and nurturing, as well as sensuality, rises to a whole other level when this piece of the Zodiac is in play.

Ruled by the Moon, Cancer also brings a flowing, emotionally charged vibe to the energy of Venus. And just like other water signs (cousins Scorpio and Pisces) this astrological signature also amplifies the feeling body, so you’re likely to find yourself sensing into what people are saying, rather than listening explicitly to the words being spoken. So if your lover’s saying one thing but their body language is saying another, you’ll be tapping straight into their vibe and leaving the conversation for dust! And if you’re anything less than completely honest with your mate, don’t expect any untruths to fall through the gaps.

This sky can create an air of nostalgia, making us all more likely to hold onto the comfort of the past than look bravely into the future. So just be super-careful you’re not holding onto traumas and pains of old and using them as an excuse not to grow – especially in love and relationships. Though this astrology will likely make you feel you need a self-protective shell around you, the nest you’re so busy building could just as easily keep you small, as nurture you both into greatness.
