Venus in Cancer

By

What You're Like...:

You come across as caring, emotionally perceptive and a good listener. You've got a sentimental heart, and like to nurture your friends and partner. You're at your best when you feel safe, because that's when your personality unfolds into its full expression. At home, you like to create a cozy, intimate atmosphere where all your loved ones feel welcome.

Quality and Element:

In Love and Romance:

Your vulnerable heart makes you cautious in love, and you're not one to rush into romance. That sensitivity is your strength, but it needs protection, since you suffer big time when you're hurt. You're tuned into what's unspoken, and can be thrown by the psychic turbulence of others. You need time to get to know someone, and develop a sense of trust. It's easy for you to take offense, and the slightest hint of rejection makes you retreat into your shell. The right person makes you feel safe and secure.

Friendship Style:

You're able to create a family feeling among your friends. You might come up with traditions to look forward to every year. You enjoy coming up with thoughtful gifts for birthdays and holidays. You're a loyal friend that likes to stay in touch, even if you move away. You know how to make friends feel nurtured and cared for, and like others to do the same for you. Sometimes you hold onto hurt feelings, and can find it hard to trust someone again, after they've transgressed. You are impressionable, and can pick up the mood of the person you're with.

Creative Expression:

Your vivid imagination could lead you into any of the Arts. Your work can have an emotionally healing aspect, or celebrate relationship bonds. Your creativity comes through nurturing, such as being a parent, entertaining, gardening, decorating your home, etc.

The Big Attraction:

You come across as someone with a big heart. You're wise in an unspoken way, and cast an enveloping warmth. You know when to say and do things to make people feel understood at a deep level. You're sensual, once there is trust, and very affectionate.

Winning Your Heart:

You'll warm up to someone that doesn't approach you too directly. You may seem aloof at the outset of a relationship, but you're taking everything in, observing. You'll appreciate those that put love and care into something, like preparing a candlelight dinner. You want to know where you stand with someone, and need a high level of sincerity. A well-timed show of vulnerability signals to you that it's okay to let down your guard, too. You want to feel deeply cared about, and considered worthy of commitment. You'll shy away from those with a lot of inner demons, especially if they're below the person's own radar.
