Venus begins its transit of your solar fourth house today, dear Cancer. Through the course of this transit that lasts until September 9th, you may be particularly attached to your home or familiar settings and your memories.

It’s a good cycle for decorating, hosting, entertaining, and family activities. Venus here can boost your relationships with loved ones, but also with your own heart, as you become more comfortable in your own skin and more aware of your needs.

Today, it can be a challenge to feel as settled as you’d like to be, however. The tendency again today is to indulge if you’re not in touch with what’s bothering you.

Instincts for financial matters may be out of step, making it a good idea to postpone big purchases. The temptation to borrow from the future is strong.

You might also be a little unsure of someone’s feelings for you. This is a day in which emotions are up and down, and it’s best not to become swept away by promises.

It is nice to have a private cave to retreat to when things get too hectic, and right now that is your haven. Journaling, reading, or planning for the future is time well spent.

As you take a step back, clarity emerges. External pressure or guilt can cause you some stress if you feel it is your responsibility to make sure others are happy.

Instead of reacting over-emotionally, you can center yourself in the knowledge that in order to have something to give, you need to give to yourself first.

Home is where the heart is when Venus returns to your home and family sector each year, taking something that is always close to the heart and making it more special.

With the Sun still nearly seven weeks away, as the planet of love and beauty Venus is able to get in before a need for reality checks and housekeeping. Venus is on a mission to see how she can make the things close to home more loving, fun and beautiful.
