Since the 8th House also rules sex and power, you can expect this day to be memorable and a bit overwhelming. Full Moons can bring insight and awareness where previously you felt confused or uninformed. So on August 1st, you might feel like running away from it all, but Mars makes a strong angle to this Moon and so It would be best to process what you learn.

This is a time for both single and coupled Cancer to revel in the adoration they receive from everyone around them. It's your month to shine, Cancer. Make it your mission, (if single and looking or even if you're not) to get out and about as much as possible. Under a Venus transit you also should do your best to push your career agenda forward, since VIPs will be in complete agreement with you and your innovative and creative ideas.
