The Venus Attraction Report: Venus in Cancer

Wherever the planet of love is in the zodiac, this is where you can tune in to what will be attracting glances and seducing future spouses. Venus is the planet that roams the zodiac, shifting our attitudes about beauty and passion. Have you ever noticed that some outfits look dorky one week, and yet within a month they are a sizzling center of your wardrobe? Fast forward a year and you may have donated half the outfit to a charity thrift store and combined the other half with something new. The nature of appearances is quite subjective in every person, but Venus can quantify beauty in the moment depending on the zodiac sign it inhabits.

The reason for this is that Venus changes signs quite frequently. While Jupiter is in one zodiac sign for almost 12 months, Venus will be in a sign three or four weeks most of the time. This is not only why an ancient statue of a beautiful woman does not necessarily strike us as being a face that could launch a thousand ships, but it also explains why "vintage" and "retro" always look their best when yesterday's funkiest styles are updated into today's hemlines.

Venus will be moving into the zodiac sign of Cancer on May 19 and staying through June 14. The sign of the Crab is the astrological place where feelings of sentimentality pervade and where a longing for security is ever-present. The way you present yourself to the world will reel in a cute guy, and reflecting the pulse of the zodiac Crab will assist you in this goal. Emphasize a look that stokes sentimental feelings in a guy, or remind him that his role is to provide a pretty girl with security. When you get around to having your pick of the field, just remember to choose the guy who makes you feel the most secure and might even be a little sentimental about love.

Cancer is a zodiac sign that is ruled by the Moon. It is one of the most emotional signs in the entire zodiac. When you attract a man while Venus is in Cancer, one or both of you is following a "gut feeling" to satisfy a desire. Some zodiac signs are literal and cerebral and stoke the conversation of flirtation. Not Cancer. Attraction that occurs during the visit of Venus will be almost instinctual in its nonverbal nature. You two will "feel" each other before a word is spoken.

Read your sign below to see how the Venus visit to Cancer creates energy that causes specific colors and themes in your wardrobe to work better than others in the dating game.

Aries March 21 – April 19

Bringing a guy back to your place is unwise unless you have invested in a cleaning person. Doing it yourself would be too exhausting.
Recommended Look: Retro 1950s good girl will make you look great around the house.

Taurus April 20 – May 20

The old lady down the street has some good gossip about who the guy in your life could or should be.
Recommended Look: Try some light scarves with bright colors and busy patterns to balance your muted wardrobe.

Gemini May 21 – June 21

Your emphasis on getting the bills paid now will mean a fun summer ahead. The guy who ignores you does not realize he is just another fish in the sea.
Recommended Look: Do they love a woman in uniform? Take a few weeks and find out just how deeply they do.

Cancer June 22 – July 22

Venus in your sign is making you look radiant. You won't find the security of a long-term commitment on two dates in May, though.
Recommended Look: Keep it conservative so that shedding layers later this summer is still a novelty.

Leo July 23 – August 22

Silence is your friend for once. You can stand still in a crowded room and be the inspirational muse to half the men there.
Recommended Look: Something metallic and shimmering, synthetic and tempting, tight and irresistible.

Virgo August 23 – September 22

Is there a reason you have to shout to attract a man's attention? Oh, it's all the nightclubs, casinos and concerts you are going to; you know that Venus in Cancer helps you look your best in over-stimulating environments.
Recommended Look: Basic black with one oversized accessory – glasses, hat, earrings, broach, make it look artsy and you will be pursued.

Libra September 23 – October 22

There is a little tension as the guy at work who has a crush on you is not the guy who you were trying to arouse.
Recommended Look: The harder you try, the more you attract the wrong attention, so you just know he will ask you out when you are in gym clothes with no makeup on.

Scorpio October 23 – November 21

If you can get away for an early vacation, love awaits, if only a temporary fling with a gorgeous stranger.
Recommended Look: The more you appear to be a tourist, the more polite a love interest will be to you.

Sagittarius November 22 – December 21

If you are looking for mature passion, you will find it mush easier than an innocent rainbow-lollipops carefree type of love, the kind you truly long for.
Recommended Look: Dress like you know what to do and you will attract an experienced user. Dress innocent and you will attract innocence.

Capricorn December 22 – January 19

Looking for love? Blink your eyes and it will be there. You won't even know you have fallen in love, he will have caught you in his arms so quickly.
Recommended Look: You two will match up in the appearance department soon enough. Just go with your intuition.

Aquarius January 20 – February 18

The best looking men at work or school may be taken, so you can at least be focused on attracting guys from other places during your lunch hour.
Recommended Look: The right amount of leather in your outfit will create a sense of mystery, the wrong amount just produces fear.

Pisces February 19 – March 20

Getting inspired to write poetry might be difficult if all your new love interest does is play video games. Seek an enlightened lover.
Recommended Look: Boys don't make passes at girls who wear glasses. But men do.
