LEO - "I WILL THEREFORE I AM."
Venus moves into Leo from July 11, 2024 until August 4, 2024. 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 (Rx) or not.
Since Leo is the sign of 'growth and development' and Venus naturally rules the 2nd house of self-worth, morals, values, translated into net-worth, as well as the natural ruler of the 7th house of committed relationships, business partnerships, marriages and commitments, then make certain during this time period you are looking at your own 'growth and development' that has everything to do with the 2nd and 7th houses.
Venus also rules Love and beauty. Last year in 2023 there was a retrograde during Venus in Leo, which was NOT the time to have elective surgery or make any physical changes to your 'self, growth and development' that you cannot take back. That was the time to go inward, not outward. NEVER manipulate what God gave you during Venus retrograde. That was likely a tough lesson for many.
Surely you know someone in your minds eye who is your example of who 'not' to be. I always say, "It's not the people who have the act together who influence me the most. It's the people who don't.
Everything that you have and own will not impress or influence me, that's just stuff that someone else will be going through when you turn to Light and leave the planet. That's just decoration. It's how you handle yourself when sh!t goes down that matters to me. It's how you handle yourself when times get tough. It's how you handle yourself when you get angry. But that's just me.
Save your impressive belongings for someone who cares, I want to know what your level of loyalty is and what your de'mean'or looks like during a challenge or when you are free falling due to your ego. Does your demeanor turn 'mean' or can you simply mean what you say and say what you mean without turning mean?
The Leo energy in your chart will MOST DEFINITELY reveal your ego based on its aspects, house placement or even if it is 'intercepted'.
This Venus in Leo Retrograde will definitely reveal what or who you have pulled closest to you and treasure the most. What and who you say you treasure the most may not actually be treated as such.
Well, Venus Retrograde is a Good time to 'fix' your inner brokenness before you set out to break others, financially, socially, intimately or otherwise. Why hurt others because you hurt? Well, because hurt people, hurt people. That's what they do, and they are usually not only in emotional pain, they are living in physical pain as well, as emotional pain gets embedded in the tissues. There are 'issues in the tissues'.
There is an article I wrote years ago called 'Pain Changes People', which you can click on the Meme and read about. This was an incredible lesson about pain that my Mama Bear taught me one day that I will never forget. It helped me recognize when the pain in others is revealed, it does not need to be mine. And a lot of times, ego is involved. You will see in this little short story, where the pained individual had to humble their ego.
Since the Universe (God) is giving us time to look deeper within, apparently we have a lot to learn about what we value. This can be a hard lesson when it comes to money and relationships, maybe together, possibly separate.
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. At the same time, those who have hard aspects to their Leo planets will also have a hard time with loyalty, that would giving loyalty or receiving 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™.
