From Dana Gerhardt’s Your Venus Unleashed report:
The goddess is a chemical! Chemists have a name for Venus in Cancer: “oxytocin.” It’s the “cuddle hormone.” Its presence was first noticed in nursing mothers, but was later identified as an active ingredient in romantic bonding for both sexes. It’s what transforms sex into love. Emotional support–caring, compassion, soothing touch, appreciation—all increase oxytocin levels. This in turn decreases stress, depression and illness. Open-heartedness is the best way to bring this goddess into your life. You don’t even need a partner to float in oxytocin. Just feel love and tenderness for every being you see, even the ants marching sweetly across your kitchen counter.
Venus in Cancer invocation by Jessica Shepherd
I am the daughter of the Divine Feminine, from whom sweet, healing waters flow constant and steady. I am your safe haven, your refuge. I am a moony-eyed romantic who enjoys a fanciful day filled with laughter, enchantments and mystical diversions almost as much as I love having people and pets to care for, nurture and support. Trouble me with your cares (I want to hear them) but don’t take me for granted. Feel me… feel me enter your heart, and allow me to nurture you with the mother’s milk of empathy, tenderness, kindness. Build a nest with me, a place we call home together.
