Venus enters Leo

September 6 – October 2, 2020

Venus has been passing through the emotional water sign of Cancer (especially touchy while opposite Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn) and has finally made her entrance into fiery Leo! Quite a change of mood! And what’s more, she has the stage all to herself – and she LOVES that!

Venus in Leo is warm, flamboyant, and generous. But she does like to show off and can be a bit of a Diva. But who cares – it is such a fun, full-of-life placement. Too bad about all that social distancing stuff – with Mercury in Libra and Venus in Leo, these planets are in the mood for a fling, or at least for a party. At the very least, Venus in Leo wants to feel special – but also knows how to make someone else feel special – pass it around!

Even in everyday social settings, the warmth of Venus in Leo shines through if you open your heart to receive it.

The other side of this transit is its creative energy. To make the most of it, tap into this energy get into an art project and let the creative energy flow – with all your might!

Leo in the 12th house suggests self-transcendence – aligning the personal will with the divine order. With Venus moving through the emphasis lies on transcending the self through acts of compassion.
