When we think Cancer, we think of nurturing, bubbling with feeling, and maybe a bit of self sacrifice (that probably no one asked for). In the case of a Cancer Venus placement, these typical attributes begin to melt into Venus’ luxurious, already emotional energy, squeezing out a warm, sentimental, loyal partner who will truly do anything for you, per Cafe Astrology. They are attracted to whoever has the power to pull them out of their shell. Cancer is the crab, after all, and if your Cancer Venus partner retreats, it’s likely because they keep putting you first and you either haven’t noticed, or haven’t returned the favor.
If your Venus placement is Cancer, you might often find yourself skipping over pleasantries and going straight for the juicy stuff. Big questions and emotions only, none of that casual chat (via Them). Loyalty is high on your list of priorities, and you likely require a bit more affirmation than others in your life. This goes for everyone, and the people who love you should know this. You love deeply and desire dedication from both your partners and your friends.
