Here we are again with the passage of Venus, capricious Goddess of Love and Beauty in the sign of Apollo or the Sun, Leo, the second fire sign. The word that comes to mind when I think of people with Venus in Leo is: “fabulous” in all its meaning! Of Fable!
This is a position of the goddess full of glamour, incredibly extravagant and generous – and if any of these qualities are not evident then we should worry. Leo needs to be admired and the Venus in this sign, more than anyone else. These are the children who spend the day saying:-“look Mommy, Mommy look!””….” and how unfortunate if you don’t have time or energy to look at them, each time, since they really need it . They build their self-esteem, on the basis of the expression on the face of their parents, especially the father, when they make their little tricks.
Venus in Leo, is interested in expressing her own creativity in a unique way, not like everyone else and it is vital for them, to find the way to do it. Encouragement by her parents in that thing that they “feel” they should do is pivotal. I have seen people with Venus in Leo, forced to do something that wasn’t what their heart dictated, with terrible consequences.
Venus in its passage through Cancer, it has helped us enjoy being at home, or in that place, where we feel comfortable and relaxed, with family, with friends, with those that we consider family; Venus in Leo will drive us to find a way, a system, a job, that will help us enhance our creativity. What can we do, add, remove, invent, incorporate into our daily lives, in order to obtain better ways to express our creativity. That which will enhance our immense possibilities, and potentials, in order to live better and feel that an unknown part of our soul now has an opportunity to express itself as never before.
Venus will trine Uranus on the 12th and 13th of September, a few days before the new moon in Virgo, and this may help us find that new element we need to strengthen and rediscover our possibilities. In many cases, it will mean meeting new people, new contacts who seem to open doors that we thought closed to us.
On the 20th and 21st, the contact will be between Venus and Saturn in sextile, a good opportunity to reconsider our close relationships and look for ways to consolidate them. It could help us feel that perhaps this relationship we are having, is more serious than we thought. On the 26-27, Venus in Leo will form a square with Mars in Scorpio, these are days to mark in red in the calender of all those Taurus and Aquarius, also for the Leos and Scorpios. Red is not necessarily a bad thing, but intense and even agitated. Clashes which must be handled with more patience than usual. Mars and Venus are eternal lovers in Greek mythology, two archetypes that need each other and meet over and over again. Mars in Scorpio temp us toward secret loves and nights of passion.
Aries and Sagittarius will look more beautiful than ever, and of course Leo will look in the mirror and feel more powerful than ever. Good time to take care of our appearance, spend more time and money than usual to beautify ourselves. Beware of credit cards, because Venus in Leo does not like cheap or second hand things. Madonna, Coco Chanel are two women with Venus in Leo.
This transit of Venus in Leo that does not occur since August 2011, nor will it happen again until July 2013, can inspire us to reunite ourselves with that part of our soul that need our care. Search inside yourself and meditate on what needs expression inside of you. What has been dormant for too long and is now begging to come out or be re-invented.
