Saturday, May 6th: Venus moves into the sign of Cancer @10:25am(ET) @7:25am(PT).

  • Venus rules, Libra and Taurus and is connected to the 2nd house and 7th houses.
  • Cancer is ruled by the Moon and is connected to the 4th house.
  • Venus is focused on relationships, co-operation, money, spending it and making it. She likes pretty things, comfort and security. 
  • Cancer is water, water is sensitive. Cancer can be moody, she can take things to heart, both good and bad. She needs to be able to nurture and at times be nurtured. She will take care of you if let her, but don’t take her for granted. 
  • Venus in the sign of Cancer, will bring thoughts of family, siblings, mothers and fathers.. We may crave family connections and going down “memory lane” with them. We might enjoy trying out new recipes, shopping for the ingredients… and sprucing up our home.
  • In our relationships, we must take heed not to take things too much to heart when our loved ones appear to be irritated, impatient or upset with us… take time to talk it out when the dust settles… it’s probably just a misunderstanding anyway. 

In astrology, the moon is connected to our emotions and reactions… how we are feeling on a given day may well be influenced by the sign that is visiting the moon… Each sign stays with the moon for up to 2.5 days…. 🙂 

The Moon Void-of-Course: 

There are times throughout the month when the moon isn’t fully immersed in any sign… this is when we say the moon is Void of Course…  when this occurs, we may feel “foggy/unfocused” … We may not be sure how we are really feeling about a situation or a person…. Therefore it is not recommended that we make long-term commitments or important decision’s while the moon is Void of Course….

However, all is not lost 😎as there are 4 signs in the zodiac which may prove positive during the Void-of-Course moon… 

  • Cancer: Taurus: Sagittarius: Pisces

Opportunity Periods  

There are other periods throughout the month that are known as opportunity periods, when it can prove to be a positive time for most people, however if you have challenging aspects happening within your own chart you may not be able to make use of opportunity periods. Thanks to Paula Bellumoni and Llewellyn’s daily planetary guide for opportunity periods and dates.
