Venus in Cancer, Gourmet Astrology

May 7- June 5

VENUS enters Cancer:  Home is where the heart is and the heart IS  home. 

This energy turns our hearts and our stomachs homeward bound. 

This is very feminine energy, highly sensitive, emotional, mothering- great for Mother’s Day. 

Do beautify your nest, put in a water feature, renovate a kitchen or bathroom or find a place you will love to call home.

This is the nurturing, plentiful, bountiful, beautiful Mother Goddess. The way to anyone’s heart with Venus in Cancer is literally through their stomachs.  Eat, eat like a stereotypical  Jewish Mother. Children will express more emotions and will need to be especially nurtured and cared for during this time.  

Venus, was born from the ocean,  the source of all Life,  as in the famous Botticelli painting. CANCER, is the ocean, the protective womb, the ocean. 

Venus in Cancer symbolizes strong FERTILITY. Cancer is the womb, the unconscious, the dream world, sensation, receptivity. She is a mermaid. 

FOOD + LOVE

Cancer is nourishment, Venus is quality. Venus in Cancer loves to eat, loves gorgeous presented food that is highly comforting and nutritious.  There will be lots of cooking going on. Do take a cooking class to learn how to prepare and cook food and as a social means too. Cancer can be crabby and defensive and this also point out to eating disorders, eating for your emotions. 

Venus in Cancer will highlight our need to protect our food from destructive GMO’s and MONSANTO’s hell-bent on destroying the food supply. Venus on the half-shell. The value of all creatures in the ocean is important, Whales, dolphins, sharks, narwhals, seals, fish,  crustaceans, these all need to be protected. 

WATER

Spend time near water, swim if you can, meditate and reflect on water. Do stay hydrated. Drink plenty of water. Do a water puja everyday. A water puja is a ritual where you offer water to a Goddess as a thank you. Water symbolizes consciousness as well as emotions. It can be done every time you wash your hands.  

WATER is also our most precious commodity. Water shortages in California, in Brazil and in many parts of the world highlights our need to save, protect and value Water. Nestle’s CEO says humans DO NOT Have the right to water!!!! Such arrogance, such demonic energy. If we don’t have water there is no food, and no nothing else. The fashion excesses of our modern cultural show how values {Venus} are totally askew. There is technology that can make water out of thin air literally. These technologies need to be funded and brought into public usage.

PSYCHOLOGICALLY

It will be easier to express and be receptive to emotions during this month. Water dissolves all hardness so both men and women will benefit from this. Tears will flow way more easily, so use these cleansing tears as a release. It will build upon that powerful Scorpio Full Moon of May 3  see my article  http://www.cosmicintelligenceagency.com/2015/05/scorpio-full-moon-meditation/

HOME

Do beautify your nest, put in a water feature, renovate a kitchen or bathroom or find a place you will love to call home. Go visit your Mom, sisters. Appreciate your “sisterhood.”  Volunteer to help a women’s shelter, raise money for homeless people, volunteer at a food bank, or become a big sister.

A good time for artists to work with water themes, watercolors, a fluid evocative subtle beauty, maybe even do still life paintings. Also makes me think of Turner’s magnificent paintings. Impressionists.

International Water Day, Go with the flow

March 22 has been officially made International Water day since 1993 by the UN.

Water is our most precious resources.  And it will be running out, SOON. Reports of looming shortages world-wide our scary and real. We must conserve water now. Brazil is on high alert for only one year of water left.Three years of drought in California have taken a huge toll.

We waste too much. Most of that hidden water usage comes from eating meat. We waste water in our homes in the west, in our lifestyles while other die of sickness and disease from lack of fresh water. We think that water, like life will be in an endless supply. But it isn’t. The recent 30 degree Pisces solar eclipse points to an end of the water cycle.

We can’t GO WITH THE FLOW if there is no flow.

There is modern technology which can clean up water, the oceans and renew land. But changing weather patterns weather due to the Sun, pollution, global warming or whatever is what is in our faces now. The world is not “a wish fulfilling gem”- John Greene. We need to act. We need to be more conscious. Consciousness is what water symbolizes.

Do you dream of water? It is one of the common symbols. Water is the collective unconscious. We come into the world in the salty water of our mother’s wombs. 

Yes we could wring out all those water signs, Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces.  Just kidding.

Especially water and earth signs, you are naturally more in touch with the physical plane. Air and Fire signs need to learn to pay attention to the natural world.

Look at what you can do to save water. Even going meatless one day a week makes a difference. Use natural local plants and trees that grow in your surroundings and habitat rather than important exotic ones which require more watering. Forget lawns. Golf courses always give me a pain. Unless they recycle their water they are a huge gluttons. Get rain barrels. Don’t let taps run. Shorten showers or take one every other day.  Fix leaking taps. Use dish water on your garden. YOU can think of many clever ways to conserve water.

We cannot live without fresh water. Plants cannot grow, all of nature needs water to survive and thrive. Think of the dolphins and whales. Think of the mermaids…
