The pairing of Venus with Cancer on August 7 is a satisfying one, although it might be a bit on the tame side for you. When Venus was in Gemini you felt excitement and anticipation, and now you might be missing all of that. The good news is that Venus in Cancer is a very understanding, compassionate, and nurturing energy, and when you pay attention to these, you won’t miss those thrilling moments quite as much.
The sun leaves outgoing fire sign Leo and enters steady earth sign Virgo on the twenty-second, putting you in the mood to get your things in order. You normally don’t like to spend a lot of free time on non-adventures, but when you see a dirty dish, you want to wash it! Tending to some of the more mundane chores like laundry and vacuuming makes you feel productive.
Venus in Cancer opposes your home planet Jupiter in Capricorn on August 25, calling into question your ability to be optimistic regarding love and/or money. You deserve to be happy, so why have these negative things been happening to you? You can blame it on fate, but it also might have something to do with your lack of commitment or discipline.
