Love Planets: Venus and Mercury
Cancer in anyone's chart — even those with mostly all Fire or all Air, for example — will always enjoy dinners at home and long for a nice family life. Though his other signs may fight with this part of him, romantic notions will always creep into the psyche of a person with Cancer influence. Below are the side effects you can expect with Cancer in your personal chart.
Venus in Cancer
Even if you have Air and Fire throughout your chart, Venus in Cancer will always make you a bit idealistic in love. You long for romance, and you dream of being swept away by passion and desire. A mate perfect for you would have to match your main influences. If you're mostly Water, look for the same in other people. Venus in Cancer can also conflict with your other signs. For instance, if you're a Sagittarius or an Aries, this Cancer aspect will fight with your need to travel and be out and about. You'll find that later on in life, your need for stability will win out, and you'll settle down and get comfortable. Venus in Cancer pairs well with Venus in Scorpio, Pisces, Virgo, Taurus, Leo, and Cancer.
Mercury in Cancer
You're great at giving advice, but you wish people would listen to what you're saying. Because you're not as pushy as Gemini (also a great advice-giver), others don't take in and reflect on your words of wisdom as much as they should. You're instinctive and know how to get confessions out of people — making them talk about things they wouldn't normally. You sincerely care about people and are uncannily adept at giving the perfect compliment. Mercury in Cancer goes well with Mercury in Pisces, Scorpio, Cancer, Gemini, Aquarius, and Taurus.
