|Former President of the Maldives Mohamed Nasheed has Venus in Cancer|
Former President of the Maldives Mohamed Nasheed is famous in the West for his strident environmental stance on climate change and being the first democratically elected leader of a Muslim country, overthrowing a 30 year dictatorship in 2008. He has also presided over the first underwater cabinet meeting four years ago to draw attention to the environmental problems. He claims he had to relinquish democratic government at gunpoint in 2012 but is running for office again despite threats to his family. Speaking on the 27th July 2013 during the launch of the Maldivian Democractic Party's (MDP) foreign policy for the upcoming presidential elections, Mohamed Nasheed stressed the importance of good relations and co-operation with other countries of the World for the future of the Maldives.
'Other countries want human rights to be respected. Other countries want only an election to change a government. There are such principles held in high regard...'Cancer delights in grabbing hold of things, hugging them close to the chest and sometimes transporting them away, off into infinity. For that short period of time when Venus was in that sloppy old sense of delight the cosmos will have urge us to surf the breaking waves for the ride. Venus's visit here in Cancer with the crustacean would have wanted us to squeeze our loved ones tight and to shower them with oodles and oodles of sweetness and just generally make sure they are safe and this applies whether to those of you born with this natally, or just at any time when Venus passes through the sign of Cancer or any Cancer activity.

A word about Venus, Venus Come Out Of Your Shell basically she likes to indulge. Feeding the body, anointing it, making it look, smell and fee lovely is what she is generally all about. There are other things she loves, such as beauty in all it's forms, and an appreciation of the finer things in life, art, culture and social bonds. Relationships, money and fairness are part of the things Venus desires. A run through that list gives us a clue on just how fundamental and central she is to our lives. Love and Money, get those two things sorted and most people feel they have a good handle on life. You can deny one but it is unusual to deny both. Unless you just deny everything.
Venus had been teasing, light and curious during her time in Gemini which got us all kind of used to that way of being, taking things on face value, using detachment but what happened when she moved to Cancer, how different was it with The Squeezy Squeezy Crab running the ‘Love ‘n Money Show’? As a word of advice, don’t stray too far, don’t push a joke, operate caution and stick around. Do this and you could have navigated your path through easier than had you played around, expected to be excused or tried to keep things on the low-low.
We would all have had a month where our relationships may have got a bit more ‘cozy’ or claustrophobic depending on your bias, and Venus in Cancer comes from a very deep bias which basically is, To Have And To Hold Is The Only Way. Gooey, sensual, slurpingly indulgent and wickedly physical Cancer is not one of the signs which says No! to self indulgence, so when Venus the Goddess of indulgence comes to stay this can be quite a combo.

If you have Cancer spanning the 5th zone of Romance & Creativity, you may find your ‘fun time’ gots a perk as what you do for the sheer love of it deepens and may go to another deeper level. Who or what do you love the most?
For the time of Venus in Cancer we may have had a cupboard stacked full of emotional pot-pouri, our senses may have been sharpend to a fine point and we could have dived deeply into the embraces and cooing sweet nothings from those close to us. When Venus moves in with the Lion in Leo we were ready to switch our desires towards a more outward focus but very much on ourselves contrasting very much with Venus in Cancer. As always its been emotional.credits: star-telegram & farandfaraway & foolandcry & the guardian
