what love looks like for a cancer person: intense, natural, stirring, but intimidating.
“Darling when we’re old, we’ll close the gates and lock the door, our love will never fade away. ” - Lenny Kravitz, Cancer (thanks devilmood.blogspot.com for inspiration)
and now we take a look at how the tenderhearted crab cancer views love.
for cancer, the ideal of “love” feels exceedingly natural. on cancer’s inside, their first instinct is to care and nurture others… love intertwine with those ideals naturally, and cancer feels love so deep to their core as a result. but the intensity of that feeling for them is at times terrifying. to love means to give themselves entirely and suddenly and for them to open up their shell, revealing their soft insides. cancer is so protective of their tender inner nature that they often live in love but also in fear that it will disappear. the concept is so intense that they want to give themselves to it wholly, but must overcome an intense fear of being hurt first.
MARS in CANCER
together with Mars in Taurus, Mars in Cancer people are the guardians of the zodiac. they fiercely guard all they love and take no prisoners - people do not trifle lightly with the ones they’ve grown to care for and wanted to protect. like Mars in Taurus also, getting their loyalty means reassuring their sense of security - allow them to clamp onto you and you clamp back just as tightly (twice as tightly, if possible) physical aspects of love, specifically sex, are intertwined with the severity of love to them. as such, they’re often not willing to engage in sex until they have some sense of security with you (and preferrably if they love you). mars in cancer people are prone to powerful emotional outbursts and are swayed very much by the raging river which can be their emotions. making them feel appreciated and loved equally will help subdue this. the thing with mars in cancer people is that their fear of love and betrayal is extremely real and often causes them to react instinctually with fear. continue to be supportive and reciprocate affection actively with them and they will become a very loving, loyal companion.
VENUS in CANCER
cancer venus, like mars in cancer, rules a life dominated by emotion. in love, this is especially true. like i said, there’s a lot of fear surrounding the prospect of love and they often throw up facades and masks to protect themselves from its prospects. they want someone who will work their way into their shell, cause them to open up and have them forever. love for them is no trifling matter - if they love someone it’s something rarely discarded or forgotten easily. like i said before, venus in cancer people have a lot of fear in love. when people have worked their way into their heart through effort and constant displays of affection and devotion, those fears will begin to subside. don’t get me wrong, for venus in cancer, those fears rarely go away all at once. they need constant reassurance that what they’re feeling is real, that their heart won’t be betrayed. like for mars in cancer, when you give this to them they will be your loyal and devoted guardians, nurturers, and lovers. with friends and other relationships, the same could be said - they are very protective of themselves. interpersonal connections are intense ordeals for them. making them feel secure will allow them to open up. make them feel emotionally significant in your life and you will get their hearts fluttering.

the key to gemini is catching their eye. with something intriguing, spectacular and easily visible from the surface. if you’ve got an inner magnetism and gemini can see it, they’ll likely have no trouble fluttering over and striking up a conversation.
and they’re intrigued by a lot of things - the cool ring on your finger, the tattoo halfway visible from your sleeve. the thing is that gemini likes to explore a lot.. so delving too deep in a relationship sometimes feels emburdening or heavy for them. as a result they’re not always known to be the most faithful sign in love. when they’re in it for the long haul, they need space and freedom to explore. clinginess and gemini people don’t mix well together. gemini says goodbye without a second look. but they’re very interesting, titillating and enchanting people and brings a lot of spontaneity and excitement to relationships and friendships.
MARS in GEMINI
these people like exploring the playing field. experimentation, seeing what’s new, and meeting new people. these people likely have a large social circle and enjoy texts popping up from members of all of their social circles. when seeking a relationship, oftentimes mars in gemini people are not initially in it for the deep emotional connection. chatting and talking to others gives gemini a degree of happiness, and mars in gemini tends to do that with a lot of people. like a butterfly, they flutter about and like to see what’s new. mar in gemini also is fascinated with intellectual conversation - media, technology, all of it… they’re often very intrigued with these topics and are usually well informed about them. with this mars placement, infidelity is a bit more common because it’s all about seeing what’s out there. feeling too trapped in one relationship is a hazard that will cause them to want to break free. satisfy their appetite for mystery, seeing new places and explore the world with them. they want to see what’s around them and learn all about it. do that with them and they’ll feel happy with you. sex wise, be willing to try something new every time. routine is bad. keep their interest and they’re safe with you.
VENUS in GEMINI
similar to mars in Gemini, you get Venus in Gemini’s attention when you show them something interesting and new. the newest business idea, your book on astrology, etc. venus in gemini are rarely without a strong intellectual and romantic curiosity. like mars in gemini, they are happiest when their phone is vibrating with messages from friends. often times these people love conversation, and they don’t view it too seriously, so people should feel secure for the most part about making small talk with these people. when you get to know them, these people will often seek advice and be telling you the latest stories. they feel romantically secure and loved when they talk with their partners or close friends about their feelings. talking out mental dilemmas, pressing emotions and events will give them a lot of relief. discussing new topics and exploring the sides of the human experience gets these people going. so talk to them about your interesting stories, what you do for a living, recommend the latest book and text them often. these people feel they need to be free to explore the world, but giving them that freedom with some restraints will work out better for both of you. watch TV and exchange ideas, they feel comfort and romanced when their partner is a good listener and communicator.

what love looks like to a taurus person - soft. easy. familiar. secure.
now to see how taurus the bull views love.
taurus the bull people are often frustrating for the fast paced lovers. taurus takes a long time to decide whether or not they like someone, and then even further with whether they want to date them. if they rush into things they often find themselves struggling with themselves about their decisions, second guessing their security. but… that’s how you lure a taurus in. promise security. be secure, promise them peace. and don’t deceive them, be true. taurus has a pretty good head about him/her, and they’re able to sense when they’re safe or not. once you’ve passed through the process of reaching their inner circle of trust.. you’re theirs for as long as they can hold onto you.
MARS in TAURUS
these people like to be pursued. because taurus doesn’t like to get up from what it’s doing and seek its own fortune, mars in taurus people are conservative in their moves and are concerned with their safety first. it may be harder to arouse their passions, their anger. it’s like working away at a giant stone wall full of treasure. it takes a hell of a lot of effort to get them to crack open and let out their fiery side. don’t mistake me though, their fiery passions and aggression are there… and the force of it is overwhelming when unlocked. getting mars in taurus to submit into love is a slow but rewarding process. they feel their rampant aggressive feelings threaten their security, so they need someone who doesn’t require that from them at all times. when you’ve worked your way past the wall, they will protect you more fiercely than any other mars sign. and lavish you with comfort. they’re less about passionate indulgence and more about luxurious indulgence.
VENUS in TAURUS
my personal venus placement. these people love a conflict-free world full of food, soft blankets and someone to hug. provide that for them? get them food and cater to their needs from time to time? they’re yours. they’re prone to laziness and not tending to minor details, so they could use someone who can get them up on their feet in a constructive and helpful way. in romance - they don’t need anything fancy. watching a movie with them on the couch will make them perfectly happy. going out and living too actively can burn them out pretty easily, so make sure you’re giving them time to rest and enjoy being comfortable with you from time to time. again, they safeguard your interests very closely and protectively when they let you in. it’s a slow process at times but remember they love being with familiar and secure people and environments. work your way up there.
love for an aries - illuminative, intense, and bright, but can fizzle out quickly.
kicking it off with the headstarter, aries…
these posts are mostly about venus and mars placements. but i’m posting a tidbit for generalities. these posts aren’t in depth because i want to do them quickly. msg me for any clarification and what comes next is how they react with other signs…
as a general rule, aries the sign itself is the aggressor. making the move, taking risks, being aggressive and not saying sorry for it. as such, they either are the initiators or the ones who value it the most. aries people often test people for their fortitude and their insistence… they respect people who don’t back down from what they want. they appreciate the challenge of the chase and competition and think that something too easy is something not well deserved. give them the hunt and aries will be yours. if you’re an aries, be the pursuer. but make sure they don’t run off because they lost interest.
MARS in ARIES
my mars placement. ah, what i’ll normally tell you that these people really appreciate people being UPFRONT with their intentions. honesty is so valued in these people’s books, and they are often one to return honesty and candor to others. they respect people who know their own power and view them as rolemodels. ALSO - in relationships, they want it all at once. but that tension inside of them makes getting to know a person a sort of conquest or challenge that they enjoy… seeing people unravel to their personality is such a pleasure for them. Mars in Aries sex drive is also extremely high, so someone who can match that stride is good in their book. play hard to get for mars in aries… bait them in and see what they’ll do to learn more. don’t let them win all at once.
VENUS in ARIES
swayed a lot by impulse. someone that looks to be the mate of their dreams swoops in and they’re theirs. until about a few days later. venus in aries appreciates it more when they’re actually the aggressor. and they won’t take any softies. venus is typically how we want to be romanced, but in this case it’s kind of turned around because venus in aries is the romancer. they make the decisions about who they’re friends with and they usually aren’t down for anyone who’s a wuss. they leap to confront their friends with honesty and earnest if they’re put in a bad light in any way. sometimes, venus in aries people are too passionate and lacking in subtlety. they could learn a lot from their opposite, libra.

i briefly mentioned saturn people in my previous post. having saturn in your chart makes things hard but reaps the hardest rewards.
the belief that hard work brings great rewards is the principle of saturn. but what does saturn having a prominent place in your chart mean? what does it do for you?
who are the saturnians?
i’ll tell it to you straight - they’re the presidents, world leaders, inspirational speakers, and most successful self-made people in the world.
why? because saturn taught them well that life gives no hand outs. through hard times in their mind or in their surroundings, they realized that they are the solution to their own problem. and they fight to improve themselves, get an edge up on the world and they expect no one else to do it for them. they are self reliant, independent, strong and successful. and they have the talent to show it. they’re the experts at what they do and through endless processes of trial and error, they’ve become the best.
on a more mundane level - saturn people usually appear standoffish and somewhat unfriendly upon first meeting them. their face and demeanor appears much older than they actually are. they hate
penitence and surrender.
the realms of saturn, the massive king imprisoned in rings.
saturn is the astrological embodiment of restriction, blockage, and fulfillment of karmic cycles. he is the conservative - he wants to keep things as they are. when you see people with heavy saturn in their chart - you know. an icy exterior, face turned upwards perhaps, and friendliness doesn’t look to be their thing. and they look older than they should, like their face has seen things that doesn’t fit their age. their countenance is stern.
scarf wrapped around the head. sash drifted over the shoulders. clothing similar to a halloween costume. and a crystal ball with a cherry on top.
