Venus in Leo is coming up (September 6th to October 3rd). The planet of love and money will shine like a small sun in the sign of creativity, celebrations and romance.
Venus is still in Cancer, and she’s currently hitting a square with Saturn (limits) at 26 degrees Libra. Relationship/financial needs (Cancer) will bow to realities (Saturn in Libra). It doesn’t mean you won’t get anything, but you’ll have to be a grown up about what you don’t get.
That special evening with your significant other is postponed because of work commitments. You can’t quite afford to buy X. Mr. ____ did not respond the way you wanted. How do you respond when your needs aren’t met? If you can find a way to provide for yourself and accept that external sources of comfort are not always available, you’ll breeze through this grumpy little aspect. Remember that Saturn in Libra demands social (Libra) maturity (Saturn).
This aspect will be exact on September 3rd, after which it will diminish. Those with planets between 25-26 degrees Libra and Cancer will feel the hardest pinch. But then, it’s on to Venus in Leo!
You’ll feel a shift as Venus enters the section of your chart with Leo in it, because this is where you’ll be attracting favorable attention. Venus always attracts, but Leo is where you shine the brightest (and demand the most attention in your life). The creative/romantic potential with this influence is huge; Leo is about giving your ego a feel-good outlet. But the potential for drama, diva-behaviour and overdoing it in order to impress is also huge. Keep the following in mind:
- The fullest expression of Venus in Leo involves pride in yourself and your relationships. During this transit, keep asking yourself if you’re proud of what’s happening. If the answer is “No”, you have some adjustments to make.
- A crucial aspect of the whole “pride” thing is quality. Leo demands the best, Venus likes it pretty. It will be easy to get sidetracked by appearances, but keep testing for quality. Does this new relationship have depth? Does what you’re buying have value beyond the initial “Wow” factor? What kind of attention are you attracting?
So polish up your talents, step up and grab some attention. Just remember…you’re going for the very best.
