1. She has a sweet & innocent aura
The Venus in Cancer woman embodies the sweetness and innocence of the Maiden archetype, which will usually be reflected in how she flirts. Her energy is soft and sweet, which may translate into how she dresses (think pretty, ditsy floral dresses, soft to the touch knitwear, bows, braids, and flowers in her hair).
She is likely to be approached by people attracted to this quiet, almost shy vibe and pure spring-like energy. Being with her feels safe and warm; she feels like home.
2. She is attracted to anything that makes her feel
Venus in Cancer women feel all the feels on what seems like an hourly basis. This is why they tend to be drawn to anything emotional, whether a sad breakup song, a beautiful piece of art, an inspiring movie, or a moving quote.
She doesn’t mind too much if it’s happily ever after romance or heartbreaking sorrow, just as long as it invokes emotions in her.
3. She needs to feel safe
A Venus in Cancer woman needs to feel safe around people before she fully opens up and lets them in. Once she does feel safe, the full breadth and depth of her heart and emotions will pour over you like a waterfall.
One of the reasons she channels so much energy into making her home a cozy sanctuary is to create this safe space for her loved ones when they visit.
4. The venus in cancer woman is cautious in love
If you plan to love a Venus in Cancer woman, know that you are signing up for a slow (but forever) kind of love affair. She isn’t the type to bare her heart and soul on a first date or go out of her way to dazzle and charm you. She has a vulnerable heart and knows she must protect her feelings because they are easily hurt. She will take her time getting to know and trust you and gradually come out of her shell. But the endless shower of love and affection is worth the wait.
5. She remembers everything
The Venus in Cancer woman is the woman who will remember every last little morsel that you tell her because this is how she cares.
She will remember your favorite book, that embarrassing story from your childhood, and the deep, dark secret you told her in confidence in tenth grade. She will remember how you like your eggs, the cat stretch you mimic every morning before you rise, and your biggest dream.
Likewise, she will remember the unkind words you threw at her during a fight and how they made her feel.
And she will carry it all with her to her grave.
6. She loves to nurture the people she adores
The Venus in Cancer woman forms lifelong bonds and deep emotional attachments with friends, family, and romantic lovers. She doesn’t know how to not care. She is the woman who holds on to her childhood friendships from 5, 10, and 20 years ago. She is the one you can always count on at the other end of the phone. The one who will invite you to her home, brew a pot of chamomile tea, and serve you a slice of homemade lemon drizzle cake while you cry in her arms.
The Venus in Cancer woman has strong mamma bear energy and instincts that urge her to take care of her entire circle.
7. The venus in cancer woman is a homebody
The Venus in Cancer woman is a true nester in every sense and gifted at making a house a home. Her creativity is usually channeled into homey things like decorating, DIY, gardening, cooking, entertaining, and mothering. She is the domestic Goddess of all Venus signs.
Her home is her sanctuary, her safe space, both physically and emotionally. It’s not just about the objects she fills it with, but also the people and the energy they bring with them.
And you’re much more likely to find this woman cozying up on the sofa having a low-key pizza and vino night in rather than at a wild rave.
8. She has a big heart
Although she is often a little shy and reserved with people she doesn’t know well, this woman has a big heart, and it’s easy to see. There’s a warmth to her aura; people can feel it anytime she’s in the room. She is the cozy fire, the steaming mug of cocoa, and the snuggly, warm towels fresh from the dryer.
She knows exactly what to say and do to make you feel seen and heard on a deep soul level.
9. She is a sensitive soul
Cancer placements are always deep, emotional, and sensitive, no matter which planet they fall in, and Venus is no different. For a Venus in Cancer woman, emotions are a core part of how she loves. Her heightened intuition allows her to sense what people need before even they do, then figure out how to provide that care, support, and nourishment. She is deeply empathetic and compassionate, especially toward the ones she loves the most. But she needs to be careful not to give from an empty cup and ensure she prioritizes her needs too.
10. The venus in cancer woman is looking for deep sincerity and care
If you want to love a Venus in Cancer woman, show her that you care by pouring your love into something special for her.
Maybe a candlelit meal at home, a surprise spa day, a sensual massage, or a heartfelt love letter. Just make sure it’s genuine and given without any expectations.
11. She is looking for someone to build a family with
A Venus in Cancer woman is unlikely to fall into flings or casual situationships simply because she takes love far too seriously for that. Physical intimacy means nothing without the emotional connection she longs for. She wants to fall in love deeply and make a home and a family with someone.
So if you’re not sure you can commit for the long haul or be the rock she needs you to be, better not to get involved at all.
12. She craves a lot of contact and connection
She has an innate desire to nurture, hug, bond, and engage in heartfelt conversations. She needs to be close to the ones she loves often. For this reason, she wouldn’t do well in a long-distance relationship or with someone who needs a lot of independence and alone time.
In her shadow side, she can become clingy and fall into a codependent relationship.
13. If she feels rejected she will retreat
The Venus in Cancer woman gives so much care and love and is like a hawk when it comes to noticing her partner’s feelings and tending to them. But if her affection is not reciprocated, she can grow resentful and rejected. From here, she will retreat back into her shell and take her love with her, and it’ll be a while before she feels ready to emerge.
What’s even more challenging is she usually won’t speak up if she feels hurt. You will have to sense into what she’s feeling, so emotional intelligence is essential.
14. She’ll take a messy history over a blank slate every time
A Venus in Cancer woman loves what she knows over what she doesn’t. Once she commits to someone in her heart, it’s forever. The thought of breaking up is not even on her radar. She would much rather deal with the raw messiness of an imperfect relationship than move on and start dating new people.
This, coupled with her disdain for breakups, can often lead her to stay in relationships that aren’t a good match. If she does find the strength to walk away, she will feel extremely hurt and take a long time to heal.
