Your 2022 Venus in Cancer horoscope

Tighten those purse strings and give someone a big hug: on July 17, Venus, the planet of love and money, glides into the security-loving water sign Cancer, where it stays until Aug. 11.

Lots of horoscopes will tell you that 2022 Venus in Cancer makes you a little moodier in your relationships, a little more affectionate, and maybe even more intuitive, but that’s just half of it.

2022 Venus in Cancer also sends your sentimentality and stinginess surging. So, get ready to rhapsodize your past as if it’s the best thing that ever was, because this transit is all about nostalgia. Also, if you’ve been throwing away money during Venus in Gemini, Venus’s transit through Cancer may see you clinging to your cash like Mr. Burns.

And speaking of clinginess…

Venus in Cancer will also have you clinging to your loved ones like a vine. During this time, it’s totally natural to ache for snuggles, cuddles and ~quality~ time. That means less talking and more hugging, kissing, and cuddling for you and your boo. With friends, you’ll forgo going out and instead hole away at home to cook dinners together like some sitcom family. (Booze will still be there, though, because water signs love to drink.)

And why are at-home gatherings more appealing during this transit? Because a) it’s cheaper, and b) it’s cheaper. Did I mention that Venus in Cancer hates to spend money? Because Venus in Cancer really hates to spend money.

Of course, how 2022 Venus in Cancer will have you curling up and counting your cash depends entirely on your Sun / Rising sign, so without further ado:

Your 2022 Venus in Cancer Horoscope

Aries / Aries Rising ♈

Affection for your family swells like the tides. Ugh, there’s so much love you have for parents and kids (should you have them), it would make an air sign puke. You’re also feeling hella heroic in your love relationships and may aim to save someone. Another totally legitimate possibility: you decide to beautify your abode but end up skimping on furniture that’s too flashy or pricey. Ikea here you come…

Taurus / Taurus Rising ♉

Time for some serious tête-à-têtes with your nearest-and-dearest peeps. Venus in Cancer wants you to connect with siblings or neighbors on a mental and emotional level. Before you snort at that, consider this: conversations are often accompanied by food, and we both know how much you love food. So, don’t ignore the invites for afternoon tea and crumpets. Also know that you don;t have to do all the talking…

Gemini / Gemini Rising ♊

Grappling with your budget? Money seems to slip through your fingers, but your insight into deals is sharp thanks to Venus in Cancer. Really, you’re only spending on the absolute necessities: groceries, gas, glass dildos, reiki-charged yoni eggs, etc. Good thing too, you have to pay for June’s VISA bill. But just as quickly as you electronically sign the statement, you may get an opportunity to earn that money back…

Cancer / Cancer Rising♋

Creative, romantic, and prosperous, Venus in Cancer has you feeling like Cleopatra or Queen Bey. Everyone, even strangers, will be intrigued by you because you’re lit-from-within, but also mysteriously distant. Just like the moon. This is a good time to get to work on your album, get cooking and make some brownies, or get out there and charm the socks off of a sugar daddy and live the high-life 4 lyfe…

Leo / Leo Rising♌

Love runs smooth as a silk teddy from Shein (it’s also just as cheap and short-lived). Venus in Cancer heightens your romanticism and may bring back a lover from the past. If you’re single and mingling, any relationship that starts during this time will be kept hush-hush. Really, you’re more inclined to hide away at home. Cuddling on the couch, making art or masturbating at midnight puts you at ease…

Virgo / Virgo Rising ♍

Venus in Cancer brings friends from yesteryear back into your life and you all binge-watch the new “Obi-Wan Kenobi” series on Disney+. These friends, who are basically your soulmates, might even bring another friend along and… WAM, you and said person hit it off like Anakin and Padme on Tatooine. Things really heat up when you both realize neither can stomach “Star Wars: Episode One” (because that movie SUCKED)…

Libra / Libra Rising ♎

Looking for love? Thanks to Venus in Cancer, you could click with someone at the office. But if you’re already in a committed partnership–which you probably ARE–then you and your boo make love a business affair. Of course, if relationships aren’t your priority–which, tbh, they always ARE–money will be. Good thing you’ve got extra charm to employ when convincing your boss, partner, bank and/or parents to lend you $5k…

Scorpio / Scorpio Rising ♏

Self-confidence and idealism will spill over thanks to Venus in Cancer. It’s been a while since you felt so… lovey-dovey (and it’s kinda weird). One way to deal with these feelings is to escape them and travel somewhere exotic, where you’ll maybe meet someone exotic, or eat something exotic. Um, the fajitas at Chili’s are pretty good. And their bartenders aren’t too shabby either (if you catch my drift)…

Sagittarius / Sagittarius Rising ♐

Say sayonara to your trusting nature and embrace your suspicious side. Venus in Cancer heightens your intuition, making you a mite more paranoid about the intentions of potential dates, hook-ups and/or bank managers. You’ll be all like, Are they lying to me about their job? What did they mean when they said they “liked” me? My bitcoin stock is doing WHAT? Etc. Don’t drive yourself crazy over imagined insults…

Capricorn / Capricorn Rising ♑

Commitments to your partner(s) deepen thanks to Venus in Cancer. Strange though it may be for you, you’re actually thinking of other people and wanting to do things with them. Say what? (Until they get under your skin, and believe me, they will). If single, you could start dating one of your close friends or even–gasp–an adversary. Which you’re totally into, because there’s nothing hotter than an enemies-to-lovers romance…

Aquarius / Aquarius Rising ♒

Animals need love too, you know. So, show those fur babies– be they dog, cat, badger, parrot –some extra love during this Venus in Cancer transit, and watch how the love magically reciprocates (cuz animals are awesome for this). Another highlight of this transit: your day-to-day life runs smoother, but this might be because your mom comes over and decides to do all that day-to-day-adult stuff– cleaning, laundry — for you…

Pisces / Pisces Rising ♓

People are gonna be falling at your feet in adoration thanks to Venus in Cancer. Charming, witty and flirtatious, you feel like the most popular person on the planet. This confidence prompts you to go out more, but only if someone else is buying you drinks. Otherwise, you’re perfectly content staying home, taking a long bath and pouting over the fact that no one wants to buy you drinks. Yet


In addition to myself, there are a number of other celebrities with Venus in Cancer, including, but not limited to: Grace Jones, ME, La Toya Jackson, ME, Meryl Streep, ME, Mae West, Ginger Spice– OMG GINGER SPICE AND I BOTH HAVE VENUS IN CANCER?? THAT’S AMAZING. Um, also Sebastian Stan and Bob Saget have Venus in Cancer. Talk about being in good company, amirit?
