Venus in Leo ~ June 14 to July 10, 2010

Venus leaves the gentle, nurturing sign of Cancer for fun-loving, dramatic Leo on June 14 at 4:50 a.m. EST, where she remains until July 10. Venus represents love, how we relate to others, how we want others to relate to us, our self-worth, what we value in life, what we like/dislike, our material possessions and finances.

In Cancer, Venus is caring, gentle, maternal, protective and nurturing. In Leo, Venus is affectionate, fearless, magnetic and loves to be adored. At best, Venus in Leo is confident, creative, spontaneous, outgoing, warm-hearted and generous. At worst, Leo-Venus is self-absorbed, stubborn, hasty and blunt.

On the day Venus enters Leo, she links up with Jupiter (ideals/opportunities), Uranus (surprises/improvements) and Chiron (healing wounds). We are conscious of what we desire as well as what may be broken in love, in life, in finances. There is an element of unpredictability with Uranus in the mix. We may be offered opportunities through unconventional means or unexpected sources. In order to be aware of doors or windows opening for us, we must let go of old thoughts, old hurts, old ways of doing things. There is knowledge we have yet to learn; there are experiences we have yet to live; there are forces at work beyond that which we have a directly influenced.

While in Leo, Venus will align with the following celestial bodies (all dates reflect North America Eastern time zone; give +/-2 days for life span of influence):

  • June 14 to 15 ~ Venus trine Uranus & Jupiter; and quincunx Chiron-rx. covered above
  • June 17 ~ Venus quincunx Pluto-rx. Total absorption. Power play. Need for control. Be mindful where decisions or reactions are rooted from. Is it love or fear?
  • July 8 ~ Venus oppose Neptune-rx. ~ Romanticizing love? This might be a day of rose-colored glasses. It's easy to overlook offenses. Be careful that you're not being pushover. On the other hand, it's a great day for pampering and giving in to fun -- whatever each of our version of 'fun' may be.

What significance do planets, signs, and houses have in astrology? Planets have the function, the job to do. The style/manner they will use get that job done is defined by the zodiac sign they occupy. Where in our life the job gets done is determined by the house the planet occupies/transits. So, when Mars (aggression) is in Aries (bold), he is more assertive than when he is in Cancer (sensitive). When traveling through the 10th house (professional life), he may bring his confidence and motivation in matters relating to our career. While in the 11th house (friendships), we may be more inclined to having our social calendar packed with activities. Having the foresight for what may be coming up or receiving confirmation on what may be happening now are ways astrology can be beneficial ... as above, so below.
