Venus in Cancer sextile Vesta in Virgo – As Venus moves away from her connection to excessive, hungry Jupiter, she engages with priestess Vesta.
Now we learn that really, it’s the little things that count. The more we focus on details, the more relaxed and comfortable we feel.
Vesta in Virgo is devoted to a path of service, Venus in Cancer loves home and family. This aspect is about living a quiet life with grace, enjoying simple pleasures, understanding that it’s what we do every day that counts.
This is about focusing on what matters, putting love into every ironed trouser crease, home baked cake and soap sud. It’s scrubbing the floor with a smile on your face. It’s singing in the bath with a glass of wine, chasing the puppy as he tries to chew your shoe – again, packing the children’s lunch, washing the windows.
Sometimes we wait and wait for the ‘big stuff’ to happen, the great milestones. But life is a patchwork of experiences. Stitch by stitch, moment by moment – trust that something beautiful is emerging from the sacred art of simply living.
