Venus: goddess of art, romance, pleasure, and beauty. Her transits shape the heart. With Venus in Leo, the heart radiates flirtatious fire. Whether you’re single, lovesick, alone in the woods, or melting in a city, you’ll feel Leo’s blaze gushing from your savage soul.
It is no secret that Leo likes to indulge. His karma (like Taurus) involves attachment to material possessions like food, drink, vacations, and luxuries of all kinds. If he has money, he will spend it.
The highest manifestation of Venus in Leo is mutual respect and childlike joy. When the Goddess of Love braids Leo’s mane, we learn the art of appreciation for self and others. The lion needs — as we all do — to feel acknowledged. Fortunately, Leo (usually) returns the favor. The emotionally balanced lion gives fivefold what he receives.
Leo is a fire sign like Aries and Sagittarius. Fire signs are active and forthright. The lion is zesty and opinionated; decisive; argumentative; stubborn. He lives by rigid rules which change according to his fickle mood. The lion’s heart is open and courageous, yet also easily bruised. One manifestation of Leo is the angry child, flickering with shades of violent emotion, inflicting pain outwardly to make his own pain go away. In the heat of the moment, Leo says things he doesn’t mean.
First things first, Mars Retrograde begins Sep 9. Then on Sep 15, Venus squares Uranus Retrograde in Taurus. This makes us feel cagey about sex and intimacy. Uranus is all about space and freedom. This is not a warm or fuzzy aspect. Weird pain in the body is common. Expect delays, cancellations, or last minute changes to plans.
Fall Equinox coming Sep 22. Venus then trines Mars on Sep 28. This is a sexy and luscious influence – total opposite of Venus square Uranus. A good day to lay in bed with your lover. Venus finally enters Virgo one day after the Full Moon in Aries on Oct 1.
In meditation, focus on the third eye chakra. Celebrate the first day of this transit with Leo Yoga. Listen to “Venus, Bringer of Peace” from Gustav Holt’s planetary suite. If you were born with Venus in Leo, this is your Venus Return. To find your personal Venus sign, click here.
