Sex Planets: Mars and Venus
Deepen your understanding of yourself and your lover. Whenever a planet is in the sign of Cancer, the planet is sensitized and interested in feelings.
Mars in Cancer
Mars in Cancer has been called a position of divine discontent. The world and people as they are irritate a person when Mars is in Cancer. He can't stand crowds, is sensitive to weather changes, and cannot bear rejection of any sort. Watery and sensitive, Cancer is not an easy position for fiery Mars energy.
However, if you examine the charts of many of our greatest artists and writers, you will find Mars in Cancer. Think of a beautiful pearl that forms from a grain of sand irritating the oyster. The irritation is the source of his creativity.
However, this sign is very sexy as he goes through life trying to feel comfortable. His unpredictability and sensual disposition toward life make him a responsive and surprising lover. He cannot be direct about his sexual desires or needs. To discover what technique, romantic setting, or position will intrigue him, listen if he talks about sex. He is not consciously giving you clues, but a word to the wise is sufficient.
Mars in Cancer can be a difficult placement, but remember that the sweet meat of a crab is under his shell and it takes some work to get at it.
The Moon governs all people's moods. Incidents in hospitals and police stations, and surgical difficulties, all increase at the full Moon, and Cancerian women may be the most aware of the Moon's effect on people's moods because of her planetary ruler and monthly cycle. Lucky for Cancerian women and her lovers, the best outlet for lunar madness is to be at home exploring sexual delights.
Venus in Cancer
Venus, the sign of love and beauty, is harmonious when she is in the feminine sign of Cancer. Her home life is an art, and no hot date is complete without a home-cooked meal. These people are easily sympathetic and will listen avidly to your sexual desires and fantasies. When one seems appealing to her, then the experimenting begins. Her motivation may come more from a desire to please than overflowing passion.
Venus in Cancer tends to give a person a sentimental side that looks for emotional security in sexual relations. Without that appeal, Venus in Cancer is affectionate rather than hot. This can be a very playful position because Venus in Cancer easily recalls her childhood, when games were always fun.
