Venus in Leo ~ July 28 to August 21, 2011

Original image source unknown.

Venus leaves the gentle, nurturing sign of Cancer for fun-loving, dramatic Leo. 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.

No matter what your Sun sign is, Venus in Leo is a time for fun and socializing so, go ahead and accept those party invitations. Make time for some friends, for play, for a little indulging here and there. Life is more fulfilling when we take the time to enjoy it. Go on a holiday with that special someone. Spend some quality time with the kids. Pick up the phone and make a spa appointment. A little pampering goes a long way.

This year, Venus enters Leo on July 28th at 7:59 a.m. PDT / 10:59 a.m. EDT, where she remains until August 21st. On the day Venus begins her transit in Leo, Mercury also changes signs to transit Virgo.

How might Venus' extended transit in Leo manifest in your world? Look to the natal house/s ruled by Leo in your birth chart. Match the sign with the house cusp/s on your birth chart.

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.
