Another day, another planet working its magic! Astrology can be remarkably intriguing, but it’s important to pay attention to the significance and archetypal energies surrounding each celestial transit. For instance, you’re probably wondering how Venus in Cancer will affect each zodiac sign, as it is not only the planet of love and beauty, but also the cosmos’ beloved muse. The goddess of abundance and enchantment, Venus’ journey through the zodiac assists us in reconnecting with our sense of self-worth, and divine feminine energies. The “feminine” component has nothing to do with gender; it simply serves as a representation of creativity, fertility and intuition.

Lady Venus entered thought-provoking Gemini on April 11, where she diplomatically schmoozed her way into opportune situations, and partook in the riveting thrill of flirtatious encounters. While transiting this mutable air sign, the goddess of love graced our immediate surroundings with harmony, and dazzled our minds with curiosity. And though Venus in Gemini’s lighthearted approach can be more fickle than committed, this celestial transit brought light to the value of our exchanges, and the duality of our ever-changing perspective. Reflect on your experience, because the Venusian journey continues.

On May 7, the planet of love’s journey through Gemini will come to a close, as it will officially enter the nourishing and sentimental sign of Cancer. Moon-ruled and high on nostalgia, Venus wears her heart on her sleeve when swimming through these cardinal waters and relationship themes, too, are romanticized. In astrology, Venus governs everything from our love language to our seduction style; this includes our feminine aesthetic, relationship patterns and value systems. Remember, Cancer is the first water sign in the zodiac, which means that in addition to being emotionally driven, it is also incredibly in tune with the undercurrents of its surroundings.

What do you think happens when we merge the essence of sensually driven Venus with the psychic radar of intuitive Cancer? Secrets, daydreams and sweet seduction, oh my! Emotional validation? Yes, please! Although, when we’re not (collectively) fantasizing about the white-picket-fence relationship or the ultimate baby moon with our future spouse, Venus in Cancer’s cravings tend to fluctuate, similar to the way the moon changes signs every two days. On that note, it’s important to be discerning with our desires and longings at this time, as we are more prone to indulge in our emotions, whether romantically or in terms of spending.

Venus will begin swimming through intuitive, sensitive and compassionate Cancer on May 7.

On the plus side, this Venus transit presents us with an opportunity to strengthen our friendships, relationships and emotional bonds. And with the help of Cancer’s empathy and intuitive wisdom, all we have to do is go within for the answers we seek. Surrounding yourself with loved ones and those who genuinely have your best interest at heart can make this transit all the more rewarding, so don’t undermine receptivity. Self-care rituals are also a must for Venus in Cancer, so don’t hesitate to show yourself more love and compassion. Steer away from attachments that deplete your energy, and nurture the home within yourself.

Here’s how Venus in Gemini will affect you, based on your sun sign and/or rising sign :
