Venus enters Cancer (the sign of the mother and child) on June 17th. Feelings and vulnerability (around relationships, money and values) will bubble to the surface.
Does what you want meet your needs? Are you attracting people/situations that enhance your safety? Nourishment is a Cancer theme, so this transit can emphasize literal and metaphorical feeding. What makes you happy and brings you pleasure must nourish you - is it quality sustenance or empty calories? The intimate relationship between love, food and your body can be hi-lighted.
This can be a lovey-dovey transit. Venus in Cancer expresses herself with hugs, kisses and care. Provided the safety requirements are met, of course. All Venus themes become very emotional, which is not a bad thing. But when you're dealing with money, or situations where some detachment is required, this incredibly subjective transit can make it difficult to step back. Habits from the past can hijack you. Watch out for the projection of childhood issues, or the unspoken expectation that others know what you want. Venus in Cancer can turn into a big baby- demands are not articulated, and pouting resentment (or tears) follows.
The Saturn/Neptune square is also exact on June 17th. The shift between structure and dissolution, occurring on the same day as Venus changes signs, suggests a layer of defences will be taken away. Whether a fantasy ends or new layers (new potentials) are revealed in an existing reality, the result will expose fundamental security issues.
Here's a chance to give/receive more of what you really want. Even if something is taken away, you'll be immediately aware of your emotional priorities. The excuses, the superficial chatter, the distractions - all gone. This can be a time to curl up and nurture yourself, or be with someone who loves you and your vulnerabilities. At her best, Venus in Cancer is sweet, calming, and familiar. No words are needed...just a warm, quiet embrace.
It's time to come home.
