A thing to remember here is that these posts are strictly meant for the particular planet position. Like, today we are looking at Venus in Cancer, so the description given here may change for you if your Venus is although in the sign of Cancer but with conjunction with or aspected by other planets.
So, lets see what Venus can do in Cancer without any conjunction or aspect from any other planet. 1st lets see what these 2 things represent --
Venus is beauty, desire and love, liquid money, Venus is beauty, desire and love. Venus is the main significator of marriage. Venus represents girlfriend or wife for a man. Venus is the significator of all relations, may it be husband-wife or mother-daughter. Philosophically speaking, Venus is also the cause of all the sufferings in our life. How? Because Venus represents our desires and we get pain and suffering in our life only when our desires are not fulfilled.
Cancer is 4th sign of Zodiac Belt, hence it represents the things represented by 4th house like Mother, Mother's care, Emotions and Nourishment etc. Cancer is consisted of 2 and half Nakshatras namely Punarvasu, Pushyami and Ashlesha. Cancer's lord is Moon.
So now planet of love is coming inside the precincts of home environment. It shows that they find their love in a person who can take care of them like their mother. Here, bond with mother is very strong. Mother is almost like a friend with whom they can share anything. They love to be at home and decorate it. They have this sense of decorating home in the best way and also of dressing themselves and others. They know how to look elegant. In matters of love and marriage, these people get a spouse who is like a mother, who takes care of them like a mother does. But here is one difference. Mother's love for the child is always without any selfish motives but as Cancer is the sign of Convenience, spouse of these people seek for convenience in order to provide love. If they can't get convenience and security, it is hard for them to provide love and care to partner, which is quite common concept. As Venus also represents creativity, their creativity prospers within the four walls of home. Meaning that they can be excellent interior designers and home decorators. As Venus also represents wealth, these people can gain wealth from works like taking care of people and nursing. They want to keep their homes beautiful.
Now, the question comes about the level at which Venus is going to give good results. So, it again would depend on the Nakshatra Venus is sitting in. If Venus is in Punarvasu Nakshatra, then we have to look for Jupiter's position as Jupiter is Punarvasu's lord. If Venus is in Pushyami Nakshatra, then it will be directed by the condition of Saturn in horoscope as Pushyami's lord is Saturn. Again, If Venus is in Ashlesha Nakshatra, then it is impacted by Mercury as Nakshatra lord.
Also, as Cancer is ruled by Moon, we need to look at Moon's position. Moon's position will actually determine that how Venus is going to behave in Cancer. Again, horoscope should be judged in its totality.
Tomorrow, Venus in Leo.
