Vesta enters Cancer on July 25th. Home is the temple. Family ties, security, mother and the past will be the focus. If it doesn't feel safe or familiar, there will be no devotion.
Cancer's extreme sensitivity and self-protection can activate Vesta's limits. Vesta is all about limits, by the way. She's like a fervent Saturn. Her focus is triggered by something that inspires. But Vesta's flip side is limits that exclude everything. So the danger (in Cancer) is hurt feelings or insecurity that lock the temple doors. Complete shutdown.
This transit will hi-light areas where you feel vulnerable, or where you need to take care of someone. That someone could be yourself, but Cancer's energy is usually extended to someone who needs you: a child, partner, friend or pet. Mothering will have an extreme quality - Vesta isn't casual. Empathy will be sharpened to a fine point. This will make it stronger, and more intrusive. Too, this transit can remind you of obligations/restrictions involving family, past or present.
Vesta will revisit Cancer from Jan 10th, 2017 to May 2nd, 2017 (due to her Rx). This means you'll be looking even more closely at those family and parental issues. Vesta's ultimate goal in this sign is to help you devote your energy to what's safe. To create safety, to make your home sacred, to enhance the power of your nurturing.
