Since most everyone in the world has been forced to be home during Covid-19 Venus in Cancer is more of the same but in a really loving and enjoying home, family, finding emotional safety and security and nurturing oneself.

Love needs emotional security now like never before. Being in isolation helps us to appreciate what we used to take for granted not that many months ago. Being separated from family, especially mothers has been very hard.  Everyone has been on Zoom connecting but Cancer is sentimental and there must be tears of sadness, loss and regret. 

And the Goddess of love enters a traditional Mothering nurturing, nourishing caring for others, foodie time, eat comfort food, be with family and your mom and help others who are still struggling. I know we’ve all been home baking sourdough bread, making crafts with the kids or working from home but we still need to love where we live. 

The Goddess of LOVE  is Home in the waters of CANCER, the ocean, the origins of life, the protective womb, from whence Venus and we all are born. The way to anyone’s heart with Venus in Cancer is literally through their stomach’s, feed ’em fabulous nourishing food.   Cancer rules the tummy and FOOD and Venus highlights our need to protect our food from destructive GMOs and protecting our food supplies. This is the perfect time for a water birth or for a rebirthing session in the water with a  tranquillity tank session which takes you back to your mother’s womb, 

Venus in CANCER will let you cry yourself a river. 

Venus in CANCER wants to take care of others but also needs to learn to be taken care of. Cancer’s homes are their castles, like the Crab symbol. They need safe harbour.  How at home do you feel in your own skin?  Your home/ CANCER  is you. How safe, beautiful, artful is your home? How peaceful is it? Decorate your home, buy art and beautiful objects which Venus loves.

Investigate the quality of the water that you drink,

NEVER DRINK BOTTLED WATER its a sham, and Nestle’s robs countries worldwide and creates a pollution nightmare of plastic bottles. Invest in a really good water filtration system. You need at least something as solid as the types which come in modern  fridges or an under the sink one which removes fluoride and chlorine. We use a BURKEY it filters out everything but you need to keep filling it up unless you get one that is installed. 

Cancer’s show their feelings, they can’t help it. Vulnerability is a great strength.  Family is not just blood. It is your friends who can be more like a family to you. Let them know how much they mean to you.
