Romance roars into action as Venus transits through Leo the lion from August 26 – September 19, 2009. It’s all about taking a chance on love and expressing what’s in your heart. It’s time to be daring in your relationships.
Whether you’re bursting with new passion for someone special, or need to bring up a problem with your sweetie, this influence will help you find the words, actions and courage to convey your feelings.
The lusty lion
Venus rules relationships, while Leo rules romance. Leo is a Fire sign, so it’s not the ethereal kind of romance, but rather a passionate expression of love. This passion may be accompanied by willfulness and a high level of drama, however, so strive for a balanced perspective in your relationships. And because Leo craves attention, don’t forget to express your appreciation to those who are closest to you.
Venus also rules art and beauty, while Leo rules creativity – so expect a burst of creative energy during the next three weeks. You may suddenly get the urge to redecorate your bedroom, take an art class, plant an herb garden, throw a party, try a new recipe, start a journal, join a writing club or organize a charity event – whatever activity fires up your inner muse. The best way to access your creativity is to be in touch with your own heart.
A word of warning about August 26-27. If you find yourself unusually combative, stubborn or controlling, it’s probably the abrasive Mercury-Mars-Pluto influence that’s making troubling issues rise to the surface, so they can be resolved. Try to stay centered, and avoid getting drawn into unnecessary battles if you can help it. A more harmonious vibe will resume in a day or two.
Fire signs (Aries, Leo and Sagittarius)
Whether it’s a relationship or a project you feel strongly about, expressing passion comes naturally to you. So Venus in Leo will ignite your inner fire, and inspire both your creativity and some hot, maybe even stormy, interactions. This influence is divine in the bedroom, but you may need to contain the fire if an argument arises. Watch willfulness. If you’re solo, romance can be found through a creative or spiritual activity – such as a play, art opening or spiritual gathering. Taking a class may also bring a romantic prospect and inspire your creativity, too. Dare to be yourself!
Air signs (Gemini, Libra and Aquarius)
Socializing skyrockets during Venus in Leo. Both romance and friendships will be influential in your life. You’ll be more inclined to spend time with people who share your interests. In other words, compatibility will be important to you. Commitment may be in the stars for solo Air signs, or at least you may have the opportunity to widen your social circle with some intriguing new friends. It might just be a friend who matches you up with someone fabulous! Look for romance during group gatherings, community events and while traveling. Networking online can bring in someone special as well. Communication is the key.
Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn)
Venus in Leo evokes your deepest desires. The sex will no doubt be fabulous, but you’ll want it all – a merging of bodies, hearts, minds and souls. No halfway measures for you! You may feel vulnerable with this level of interaction, however, so you’ll need some courage to inspire a deep connection. Healing old emotional wounds and dealing with the past will be necessary for relationship success. Heed your intuition, too, which will be especially strong. Single Earth signs can find romance through an old friend, family member or personal-growth activity (a meditation group, perhaps?). Be sure to spend some time alone, so you don’t get emotionally overloaded.
Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces)
Your sensuality will be all fired up during Venus in Leo. Getting physical (think massage, exercise and good food and drink) will bring out your romantic side – to the delight of your partner! It’s time to ground your naturally powerful emotions with some earthly pleasure. The danger of overindulging will be the challenge, so you may need to rein in some of your eating, drinking and spending. If you’re solo, romance can be found through a colleague, work project or health-related activity – maybe via a gym flirtation. On a practical note, be on the lookout for moneymaking opportunities and ways to advance your career.
However you choose to enjoy Venus in Leo during the next few weeks, be sure to share your heart with those you love.
