The Venus in Cancer Transit Is Definitely A Mood

If you needed the incentive to serve breakfast in bed on that adorable vintage silver tray you thrifted, hello, Venus in Cancer transit! While you’re at it, break out the letterpress cards and your favorite set of pens and get to work on a non-digital love letter. Romantic gestures should skew sentimental if you want to hit the mark for the coming weeks.

Coupled? Ready to give each other a spare set of keys, meet the families or talk babies? With Venus in this cozy sign, it’s the perfect window to get closer. Just be aware of how your fluctuating moods may impact others now.

Single? You might feel especially shy or sensitive when meeting new people during the Venus in Cancer transit. A workaround? Let your inner circle make introductions. This doesn’t have to be obvious. Just start showing up at all the places they invite you to. The intimate vibes could help you make a genuine, heartfelt connection. Watch for neediness, which can make you act too clingy too quickly.

One important note! Venus’s copilot, lusty Mars, rides through Taurus for the duration of the Venus in Cancer transit, making homewhere the heart AND the heat can be found! Keep in mind: slow and sensual wins the race in your love life, too. Taurus is the sign of traditional courtship gestures, but with impatient Mars hitting the gas, relationships may quickly accelerate into serious status. Combative Mars in headstrong Taurus can lead to formidable fights where nobody backs down willingly. Of course, the sparks you set off with marathon makeup-sex could be (almost) worth the trouble.
