Loving Venus just moved into caring Cancer, so you’re probably bending over backward to make sure everyone around you feels safe and comfortable. This is all fine as long as you’re taking some much-needed time out for yourself. Putting yourself first during this compassionate transit is an often overlooked but necessary task to avoid emotional burnout.
Communicative Mercury is also paired with sensitive Cancer during its moody opposition to dark Pluto today, stirring up all kinds of suspicion and manipulative tendencies. It’s so easy to get your feelings hurt (and hurt other people’s feelings) now, so be very careful about how you respond and what you say. When you sense any type of betrayal, your first instinct is to get revenge, but fighting negativity with more negativity during this touchy aspect usually backfires.
