LEO - "I WILL THEREFORE I AM."
Venus moves into Leo on August 26, 2017 at 12:30 AM EDT until September 19, 2017 at 9:15 PM EDT.
Venus transits a Sun Sign right at about every 30 days and sometimes up to 60 days depending on its motion, meaning if it involves a Retrograde or not (like it did when Venus was in Aries back in the Spring 2017).
The Venus glyph is the upright symbol of Mars, where Venus is feminine (yin) energy and Mars is masculine (yang) energy. It is represented by the circle of spirit over the cross of matter. It represents the spirit overcoming matter through Love. Venus is the yin side of our emotional nature and rules Love, beauty, harmony, affection, appreciation, sensual, vanity, flirtatious, art, music and aesthetics. The house that Venus occupies in your Natal Chart or Solar Return is where these characteristics will manifest the most.
Venus reveals how we like to relate to our environment and other people. Venus also shows how you express your emotions in personal relationships, especially where marriage and Love are concerned. Venus will reveal if we are attracted to strong, sensual and intense relationships or if we prefer freedom and independence. It also indicates what we value, and therefore is linked with money, personal possessions, resources, creature comforts, aesthetic, social values and morals. The house that Venus occupies in your Natal Chart or Solar Return is where these characteristics will manifest the most.
Here is a nice little piece of Venus trivia for you. Venus will never be more than two Sun Signs away from the Sun. This means someone who has their Sun in Leo, will have their Venus within 2 Sun Signs on either side of Leo or it will be in the sign of Leo. This means there are five possibilities that a Leo Sun Sign individual might have their Venus -- Venus in Gemini, Venus in Cancer, Venus in Leo, Venus in Virgo or Venus in Libra. This helps you guess someone's Venus even if you don't know their exact birthdate but you know their Sun Sign. You can rule out Venus in the opposite sign (Aquarius) and the three signs on each side Aquarius (Pisces, Aries and Taurus) and (Capricorn, Sagittarius, Scorpio). Cool huh?
Venus is the planet of Love, romance, pleasure, relationships, self-worth, dignity and all things beautiful. Venus also rules our self-worth, personal finances, earned income, morals and values. Venus is like the Greek root phil- or philo- which means to have a Love of or strong affinity for something or someone. So when you think of Venus in your Natal Chart or Solar Return think "Love of" whatever sign is involved.
Venus in Leo means Love of Life because Leo is naturally ruled by the Sun and the Sun is the Giver of Life. Typically Leo's are very uncomfortable talking about death or especially contemplating their own end of Life because the Sun, which rules Leo is the Giver of Life. The sign of Leo shines their sunny disposition on the world bringing it to Life just like a the Sun shining on flowers. Everything always grows in the direction of the Sun. I think the motto for a Leo should be, "I Love Life therefore I am." Leo naturally rules the 5th house of dating, intimacy, one-on-one connections, fun, pleasure, the playground, joy, bliss, creativity, pro-creation, children and child-like behavior. As you can see, God has put Leo in charge of His playground and His children. This is why Leo's are so expressive, animated and bright in how they show up on the scene. It's like a Light is turned on when a Leo walks into the room. Head's turn toward the Light, just like a flower grows toward the Sun.
Leo is ruled by the biggest heavenly body, the Sun, which is probably why their ego is so big. Leo's have a lot of pride, which is interesting because a social group of lions is called a pride. One thing Leo's absolutely have to do is remain humble because they have to be able to relate to the children. Puffing up and standing big over someone is the absolute wrong thing to do. Leo's must humble themselves to relate to their audience, children, group or pride. If they hurt 'the pride' they will get 'their pride' hurt. Wherever Leo is in your personal natal chart this is where you will need to be admired and appreciated the most. Mark my words on that!
Leo is also the royalty of the zodiac, queen/king of the jungle. Leo's enjoy lavish parties and social gatherings and do not mind being the center of attention. There will be some Leo's who absolutely do not want to be the center of attention but somehow they will be, even if they work behind the scenes. I liken this to a film director or producer who isn't necessarily on stage but still wins the ultimate accolade called, "Oscar!" Leo's enjoy decorating their space lavishly and should have nothing but the best, especially if there is gold or gems associated with it.
It is important to note that Venus in Leo can really dramatize emotions so we will likely seek movies and/or surround ourselves with people who are rather dramatic. In fact, this transit is so dramatic that movies that star Oscar winning actors and actresses may reappear on cable, satellite or movie rentals.
Leo is also the ruler of the 5th house of children, so we may see the spotlight on children. Actually, we may also see in the news more stories on children being saved, found, protected and cured under this transit. Leo the Lion is the protector of children and no one messes with children when a Leo is around, especially when there is a fondness for children like Venus in Leo.
Venus in Leo is incredibly romantic and affectionate. Remember that Leo is naturally ruled by the Sun, the sign of the sunny disposition and giver of Life and Venus is all gooey, affectionate and romantic. Venus is musically inclined and it's artsy. Chances are everyone will be invited to some sort of lavish gathering or party during this transit and my suggestion is to accept the invitation and make certain you show up. Prima donnas will come out of the woodwork but that's okay, they can't help it because they are just living out their chart. Who knows, maybe you will be the prima donna in the crowd seeking to be the center of attention.
Leo is all about sincerity and loyalty. Leo's are not only loyal, they absolutely require loyalty in return but you have to be worthy of that kind of loyalty.
Anyone who has Venus in Leo in their personal natal chart will need their partner to look Good at all times. They want a partner they can be 'proud' of and how off. Venus in Libra is the same way but it is more about the person taking care of themselves than it is being a sense of pride as it is for Venus in Leo. Even though Venus in Leo wants their partner to look great at all times, that partner will still need to give enough attention to the Venus in Leo or they will get jealous. And I mean really 'roaring' jealous.
Remember to check-in with your Natal Chart or Solar Return to see where Leo is so you can see how Venus in Leo will show up for you personally rather than as an entire sign Stay Astrologized™.
