Posting a day early, because this aspect is such a doozy.
Venus in Cancer opposes Pluto Rx, at 16 degrees Capricorn. Venus can be ultra- needy and smothering in this sign...Pluto penetrates her shell, going straight to her heart and intensifying the "must have." Even if you think you're giving selflessly, this aspect is about giving to get what you want. There's some manipulation, based on primal security needs. Venus in Cancer is hungry. With this aspect, consider what's at the root of your hunger.
The opposition is about projected desires, and assigning value to something outside yourself. Will you get what you desperately want? Maybe, maybe not. The real issue is how your wants align with what others can give you. How much value are you giving away? Pluto can yank the rug out if you don't actually need what you want. Now there's food for thought - do you need it/him/her? It may feel like you do, but do you really? If you're projecting tremendous value onto someone else, chances are what you need is an adjustment to your value system. If you're starving for love and you think someone else is the only source of nourishment, you're wrong.
It all begins with you. Feed yourself.
Sometimes, you need the wake-up call, not the person/goal. Pluto can bring the necessary transformation by taking away what you crave the most. Intensity is the teacher. It feels cruel. But the lesson is unforgettable.
For others, this aspect may be a turning point that delivers the goods - here's what you've magnetized. Here's what your power has attracted. The intensity comes in the form of an all-encompassing passion (for a person or goal - Venus isn't just about romance). You're transformed by the power (Pluto) of opening up (Cancer) to what you love (Venus).
No matter what happens, Venus' trine/sextile to the Pisces South Node/Virgo North Node (15 degrees) are positive. You bring something from the past (South Node) to completion, and you progress (North Node). Pluto is the trigger. Intensity is the delivery system. Venus/South Node can be nostalgic, but the trine suggests easy release, or effortless progress. Even if Pluto makes it heavy, letting go should be like water through your fingers. The next step unfolds naturally.
Note that Venus is applying to Jupiter in Virgo (17 degrees) with a sextile (exact on July 1st). This means more good stuff ahead. It's a quiet influence - no glitter dust. But there's an opening for you to make intelligent (Virgo) decisions/improvements that enhance your value and security. Expand on the nurturing love you have, or set yourself up so you can attract it.
