Venus enters Cancer this week and transits through the water sign a majority of August. Emotional intelligence, nourishing self and others, home, tribe, security, the feminine, family, parents and inner life are poignantly in focus this month. As was true for your conscious awareness and instincts (Sun and Mars), now your relationships and security needs are undergoing change and transformation when Venus squares Uranus (August 24th) and opposes Pluto (August 15th).
Relationships are approached during this transit with a desire for security, familiar patterns of relating and a desire for emotional protection. On the Soul level you perceive the reasons for sustaining nourishment of the various forms of love in your life. In Cancer, Venus vibrates with it's esoteric ruler Neptune expanding a greater compassion for the human journey and the solicitous care required to support and nurture human life.
Wisdom and love is focused on family (and family of choice), beautiful and creative living environments, housing developments, Mom, women, the feminine energy within all beings (to receive magnetically), food preparation, restaurants, catering, hospitality industries, finances, business and with the public.
