2017 Venus visits Cancer- July 31- 10.54 am EDT to Aug 26- 12.30 am EDT
Whenever a planet changes signs we feel an energy shift. While Venus was in Gemini the focus was on new ideas and communication. It was also on healing issues of polarity and duality. She was in Gemini July 04 to 31. Gemini is her Soul Centered Home and she is considered to be the harmonizer of the Universe while visiting there. Was anyone listening?
Now that she is visiting Cancer the theme is mastering the emotions. The key phrase for Cancer is “I Feel” and I would add “I feel everything deeply”. Cancer is the sign associated with our roots, origins, ancestors, the home and family we grew up in, and the home and family we have created. Venus is the Goddess of Love and while she visits Cancer we have the opportunity to heal family of origins issues that keep us stuck in old patterns of woundedness. Her journey in Cancer is ruled by the Moon so expect your emotions to be stirred up by whatever sign the Moon is visiting every two and a half days. For example the Moon entered Scorpio July 29 (intense emotions) and her First Quarter Phase on July 30. The theme for First Quarter is make a decision, take action, and break free. This morning July 31 at 7.10 am EDT the Scorpio Moon was sextile Pluto in Capricorn (opportunity for healing and transformation). I see that as setting the theme for this Venus in Cancer journey. What is interesting is the Moon also entered a 24+ hour “Void of Course” period at that time. Void Moon is a looking within time and not a time to take action. The Moon will enter Sagittarius (spiritual consciousness) on Aug 01 at 8.01 am EDT ending the “Void” period. A Void Moon means she is not “talking to the other planets”. She is at one within.
Venus in Cancer activates the Tarot Constellation of The Chariot, Mastery through Change. I call it stepping onto our spiritual destiny path. If you are already on that path it is the opportunity for growth and expansion while Venus visits this Tarot Constellation. The other energy active on The Chariot is Mars. In the Tarot he is associated with The Tower (of destruction). That is not necessarily negative. Mars is the planet of motivation and action. He helps us break free from those structures and forms that no longer serve us so we can create new opportunities for growth. (Mars and Pluto are allies in this endeavor). Currently Mars is in Leo (being centered in the compassionate heart and being the courageous spiritual warrior). Venus and Mars are the relationship planets (committed partnerships) and they just entered their Balsamic Phase on July 15. (They began their current cycle on Nov 02, 2015 at 24 degrees Virgo, The Rainbow Bridge of Healing into Wholeness. That has been their relationship theme). Relationship now has the opportunity for healing, forgiveness, completion, and release. The release can lead to letting go or renewal. Mars and Venus will be in their Balsamic Phase until Oct 05. But the Universe always give us more chances for healing. On Oct 05 these relationship planets will meet and start a new relationship cycle. They will meet again in Virgo (at 18 degrees) offering us another opportunity to cross The Rainbow Bridge of Healing.
The Animal Totem who guides this Venus in Cancer journey is Flicker Woodpecker, transitions that lead to new rhythms of growth and Healing love (Northern Hemisphere). Also Snow Goose, following our dreams and visions (Southern Hemisphere). Wherever you are located geographically these Totems are guiding you astrologically. Work with them both for this Venus passage through Cancer. For all of us the Clan Mother who guides this Venus journey is Loves All Things. She is the Mother of Unconditional Love and teaches us to forgive ourselves and others. This is important because as we mentioned the relationship cycle (Mars/Venus) is in the Balsamic Phase, healing and forgiveness. You can find more of Loves All Things story in The 13 Original Clan Mothers or Earth Medicine both by Jamie Sams.
In The Ancient Wisdom Teachings (Alice Bailey) Venus is found on the 5th Ray of Knowledge and Healing with Archangels Raphael, the shinning one who heals, and Mary, Divine Unconditional Love. Those guides always walk with her but when she visits an astrological sign the Rays of that sign are active. For Cancer it is 7th Ray of Innovation, Ceremonial Order, and Magic, with Archangels Zadkiel and Amethyst guiding us. They are the Guardians of The Violet Flame of Transmutation supporting us on our spiritual destiny journey. Transmutation is the process of metamorphous. Cancer is also found on the 3rd Ray of Divine Mind and Active Intelligence. That is Heart Wisdom. Our Archangel guides are Chamuel, healing through Divine Love, and Charity, gratitude and thanks for gifts bestowed.
In closing Venus in Cancer wants to fix things that are broken. Cancer is the sign of the Mother and the need to take care of others. What is important to remember is the person we need to take care of first is ourselves. Make sure while Venus visits Cancer you take time to nurture and nourish your spirit. Call on the Great Universal Mother and she will support you. This is the Goddess linked to the sign of Cancer.
