In every birth chart, there is a Venus Sign. You could compare the role of Venus with the role of Make-up. It makes you beautiful and is a crucial part of your courtship behavior since you rely on this part of your personality to seduce – not only your lover but also society. For example, you can have a boisterous and impulsive core personality (Sun and Moon) but at the same time a tender, shy and sensitive Venus like Cancer. Then you appear to be much softer than you feel you are on the inside.
Features of Venus in Cancer:
Venus in Cancer finds beauty in emotional intimacy; a cozy home where she can enjoy a quiet evening with woolen socks, a cup of hot chocolate in front of a small fireplace and her partner next to her. She values a traditional, peaceful life, that conveys a sense of security and that contains life that blossoms – meaning children as well as flowers. Also, Venus in Cancer has a particularly big passion for delicious and sun-ripened food. Those are the things that nurture all her senses. In reverse, she wants to nourish her fellow people with emotional security, good food, comfort, and welfare.
She has the talent to make everyone feel cared for, mothered, well-protected and accepted. The need to give other people a home roots deeply. That’s because Venus in Cancer is soulful, intuitive, tender and has a lot of empathy for everyone. She may be petulant when she is overstimulated or doesn’t have an opportunity to hide under her shell. Also, she tends to be shy in love because she prefers to be conquered rather than making the first step. All in all, Venus in Cancer is soft, passive, soulful, compassionate, maternal, loving, emotional, full of creativity and artistical talent.
