Venus (love, money, values) transits through Leo from June 27th to July 22nd. All Venus-ruled issues will become more prominent (Leo commands attention), so this energy is helpful for promoting yourself (in love or work) and boosting your confidence. It's also about how much others appreciate you (or not). Venus in Leo can increasing cravings for new/risky romance, as well. From June 27th to July 1st, Venus will be hit with a limiting square to Saturn in Scorpio. These few days will present blocks, delays, oppressive rules or fears that stand in the way of what you want. It's a temporary influence, so don't give up if you run into a roadblock. But do pay attention to areas where you feel Saturn's squeeze; is it possible that you could adjust your approach?
Venus brings the sparkle to your sector of creativity and romance. If you're looking for love, this is the time to socialize (you'll have an excellent chance of attracting romantic attention). This is also a fabulous influence for creative work, or if you need to perform/publicize. In general, Venus' tour of this sector should help you feel more attractive/flirtatious/confident/inspired. Venus will square Saturn in your sector of shared resources, so you could feel a temporary slow-down due to debts, difficulties with your partner's finances or some deep seated, intimacy fears. This brief but frustrating influence will pit your desire to stand out against rules that you don't have control over. You don't get to call the shots on this one, so it's probably best to accept the existing limits.
As Venus (your ruler) enters your sector of home and family, you'll be focusing more on core, emotional needs or self esteem. This influence takes you back to what your bottom line desires are (and if they're being met in your current, domestic situation). On a lighter note, this energy can also indicate redecorating, or celebrating with family. However, the square to Saturn in your relationship sector suggests some tensions with a partner, or an increasing awareness of what your relationship does not give you. If you're single, these few days could be a particularly lonely time. Rather than dwelling on what you don't have, use this energy to focus on what you'd like to have, and how you might manifest that in your life. Now is the time to see how current desires are colouring your future chances for relationship success.
Venus enters your communication sector, gifting you with a greater than usual ability to charm others with your words. This is the influence that helps you say it just right, or impress others (or one particular person) with your flirtatious wit or creative chops. If you need to submit some writing, increase publicity or talk sweetly to someone, this is your time. Alternatively, you could be on the receiving end of a sweet message or romantic declaration. However, Venus' square to Saturn in your sector of daily routine may cast a temporary shadow. It's possible to hear some unwelcome news regarding a health matter or work situation. Co-worker relationships could be tense for these few days as you attempt to navigate limits or shortages. You may also find that (under this influence) your charm only carries so far. If someone's not responsive to what you say, wait until this influence passes before you approach them again.
Venus enters your security sector, boosting your earning potential, your ability to attract what you need, and your emotional satisfaction. This transit will push you to put your baseline desires front and centre; if you're not feeling like Number #1 in a relationship/professional scenario, you'll be demanding more. However, Venus's square to Saturn (in your creativity sector) can put a temporary delay on financial increase or emotional happiness. You can still get what you need, but you'll have to navigate a reality check involving a creative project, personal goal or new romance. If you find that certain possibilities are not available, adjust your focus and double your efforts. You'll have to earn what you feel you deserve.
Venus in your sign boosts your charisma, popularity, confidence and magnetism. It's your time to shine. But first, you'll have to deal with the speed bump of Venus' square to Saturn in your domestic sector. Home/family responsibilities can weigh you down, or put limits on your spending. Home renovations or a relocation may turn out to be more costly than anticipated. This is a brief influence, so relief should be close by. But for the next few days, pull back on your spending/partying. Alternatively, if fears that are rooted in the past rise up and throw a shadow over you, it's a signal that they need to be confronted. Saturn demands that you do the work, even if this means going back to the past to root out what's dragging you down.
Venus enters your sector of secrets, stirring up hidden desires or a previously unacknowledged creative/romantic potential. It's still too early to act, so allow events (or your deepening certainty of what's best for you) unfold. The square to Saturn in your communication sector can throw some static as plans/ideas clash with what you're hoping will happen. The collision of hopeful fantasy with reality can be unpleasant, but this influence is only a brief hiccup. Stare down the facts, digest them, then move on. Venus is stirring up tons of potential (the game is not over). Once Venus enters your sign on July 22nd, everything (that's meant to) will bloom.
Venus (your ruler) moves into your social sector, putting you in the spotlight and boosting group relations. This influences allows you to grab all the positive attention (with friends or a new flirtation) you want. There's a "show off" energy here; although you don't normally make in-your-face grabs for the spotlight, you may find yourself being uncharacteristically direct. The square to Saturn in your sector of resources will make you question if you have what it takes. You do, but you'll have to endure some financial or emotional limits, and work around them. Also, know that Saturn's transit through this sector is consistently urging you to pare down and become more disciplined. This will be especially evident during the Venus/Saturn square.
Venus in your career sector helps you impress management, the public or clients. Now is an excellent time to launch a job search or professional project; others will see what you have going for you and they'll be impressed. However, the square to Saturn in your sign indicates that current responsibilities/life changes may cause you to pull back from or (alternatively) focus obsessively on certain future goals. During this influence, know that you can't force something to happen. But shutting down isn't the right answer, either. Whether it's reputation, or a future opportunity that you're attempting to control, back away from the all or nothing approach.
Venus in your opportunities sector can introduce a long distance romance, or exciting developments regarding travel, education, legal matters or publishing. What's new or unusual is where you can reap the benefits (and favourable attention). The square to Saturn in your hidden sector suggests background fears or an outmoded situation/lifestyle (that you've been trying to leave behind) will cause some temporary disruptions to these new opportunities. Know that what's limiting you is actually part of your past (or it should be). Those rules don't apply to you anymore.
Venus enters your sector of shared resources, bringing positive developments to taxes, debts, loans or your partner's finances. There may not be a financial windfall, but you should find increased assistance. Alternatively, emotional/physical intimacy can heat up quite nicely. But the square to Saturn (your ruler) in your social sector may cause some brief delays related to public reputation. The opinions of others may weigh heavily on you, or external rules will feel intrusive. Alternatively, you may find that a certain friend or group does not have your back. If there's no support in one area, it's time to move on.
Venus enters your partnership sector, boosting the fun/celebration factor of an existing relationship, or introducing a new romantic prospect (if you're single). This energy can bring a nice shot of starry-eyed romance to your love life, although you may also have to contend with a partner's increased demands/ego. The square to Saturn in your career sector can see work responsibilities getting in in the way of love; for the next couple of days, it will be difficult to give your partner all the attention they crave. Although the increased responsibilities at work will continue, this tension in your love life is temporary.
Venus in your sector of work and health can smooth out co-worker relationships (or spark a new flirtation), and give you an extra shot of vitality/optimism. This influence won't cure any existing health issues, but it should give you positive resources to work with (an encouraging diagnosis or supportive health professionals). But before you get to the good stuff, the square to Saturn in your opportunities sector can indicate tensions/disappointments/delays in work or health areas. These will be short lived; you'll be tempted to slack off/give up, but know that there's a solution or work around available. Alternatively, this square could leave you feeling overlooked or unappreciated. Once again, it's temporary; you'll find some reward for your efforts once this influence is over.
