When you think of summertime, doesn't your heart swell up? There's always an emotional line running through the warmest and sunniest season and it all has to do with the vivid memories you make with the people you love. It has always made so much sense to me that the beginning of summer is often when Venus — planet of beauty, love, and friendship — enters sensitive, empathetic, nostalgic, and romantic Cancer. This year, this gorgeous transit begins on July 3 and ends on July 27, and your Venus in Cancer 2019 love horoscope will describe just how beautiful it will be for you.
Now, if you've heard about the upcoming eclipses and the Mercury retrograde slated to take place in July, you may be wondering how this could possibly be a wonderful time for love. Well, the cosmos works in mysterious ways, and even though Mercury retrograde is rife with communication issues, reconnections with the past, and an overall sense of confusion, it doesn't mean there won't be beauty in the midst of it all. Even though eclipse season is when your relationships tend to take unexpectedly sharp turns, remember that the heavenly and destiny-oriented North node is in Cancer. This essentially means that whatever happens in your relationships is meant to be, and that you're moving forward in the journey that is your life.
As dramatic as that sounds, let's not forget just how fun Venus in Cancer can be. When I think of Venus in Cancer, I think of holding hands and watching the sunset. I think of cuddling on the couch all night with a Netflix marathon. I think of finding someone who makes you feel like you're at home. Read on to find out how this transit will affect your zodiac sign:
