When Venus & Leo celestially intertwine, it's a time for you to indulge your senses, revel in romance, throw yourself into your creativity & most importantly embrace your playful inner child.
Leo with it's strong active masculine energy, encourages you to be bold. Don't wait around for things to happen, you need to be the instigator, like the King of the Jungle, be a hunter….rrraaahhhrrrr!
In comparison, Venus want you to pamper yourself & enjoy the good things in life, including basking in the delicious rays of romance.
Leo loves to be playful, imagine a big cat high on catnip with a huge cardboard box. During this time it's important to prioritise seeing friends, going of on fun adventures, digging into creative projects ( Leo is strongly linked to Artists & Performers ) & dusting off your best party shoes to dance the night away. Everything at this time can seem larger than life, like seeing the world through techni-coloured glasses, giving things an amazing yet slightly surreal & trippy hue.
Pride, strutting your stuff, showing off your peacock feathers, lavishing gifts on yourself or others, being indulgent, shows of ostentation, hugely over the top theatrical performances & being the centre off attention all feature heavily at this time.
Talking about pride, particularly self-pride, be mindful this transit of keeping this in balance. To little & we are giving our power away, too much & we become arrogant, cutting our nose off to spite face. By all means blow your own trumpet if you want, but do it humbly.
For work & career it's a great time for positive progress, so take the bull by the horns. Venus's abundance combined with Leo success work perfectly as a dynamic duo. The beneficial energy of theses two planets supports, completion of projects, the birth of new ventures & for getting the recognition or rewards you deserve. It's somewhat like harvest time, you can now start to reap what you have previously sown….. hopefully you sowed good seeds last season! It's important to celebrate your achievements, these are all mile stones to be acknowledged, so we can appreciate how far we have come & how much we have achieved already. Financially though, be careful of the temptation to splurge to much.
Venus teamed with Leo makes the romance & attraction aspect of this transit have a strong "kapow" factor & is great for adding extra passion & loving vibrations to established relationships.
In regard to new relationships, just be mindful Venus, is not about longevity, commitment or faithfulness & Leo struggles to mature from the fun, ego building, lovestruck stage of a relationship. It's not to say that these things aren't possible during this transit, it's more to highlight the fact it's important to enjoy the romantic "journey" of this Venus in Leo transit, rather than getting to hung up on the destination. This is an energy best relished moment by moment. Simply open up your heart, have fun, be cheeky, & allow love to flow through you.
With Venus in Leo saying "yes" all the way, it's actually a good thing that Saturn's transit of Scorpio, which sits at odds with the Venus in Leo transit, is directly effecting it. This is where a much needed balance comes in. Saturn in Scorpio dilutes the intense energy down & gives some much needed grounding & perspective, making you think with more caution before leaping into anything.
Remember the old adage, "sharing's caring", so it's a good time to remind your loved ones how much you appreciate them, maybe even surprise someone with a special little gift or a fun adventure (i'm rather fond of organising surprise treasure hunts), to let them know you care. Making them smile is worth a million dollars……. making strangers smile is hugely heartwarming too :)
