On August 12th, Venus ingresses from Cancer to Leo joining the Sun, Mercury and Jupiter.
Tons of flirty Leo dramatics in the air.
While in Cancer, we had an opportunity to nurture the area of life (i.e. the house in your natal chart) touched by the Goddess of Love. As she moves into Leo this week, we get to bring vitality, creativity, fun and childlike exuberance to this house and/or the succeeding one. No other sign demands attention like Leo, so wherever this is going down in your life prepare to give due consideration.
To utilize Venus, it helps to understand what she represents. She rules attraction and attractiveness. She is magnetism. Her placement in the natal describes what we are attracted to and how we attract others. By transit, when she moves through an area of an astrological chart, the chance to draw energy to the workings of that house is stimulated. She is associated with money, resources of all types (financial and relational), self-esteem, beauty and love. Along with Jupiter, Sun, Moon and Neptune, she is known as a benefic planet. She is lucky.
For example, I have a Cancer/Leo 10th House, so Venus is there right now and has been for weeks. The 10th House is about career, status and public reputation. In July, while Venus was in Cancer transiting my 10th, I started this blog (birth=Cancer) and have been nurturing it along. Now that Venus is moving to Leo, which is also partly in my 10th House (I use the Placidus house system), I get to bring the aforementioned creativity to my work here, an extra boost at least.
But this is just my chart. Everyone has a different area that is affected by Venus changing signs.
And the excitement doesn’t stop there, folks. While she travels through the sign of Leo until early September, Venus is going to make contacts with other heavenly bodies that will further stimulate things, specifically Jupiter, also in Leo, Mars and Saturn in Scorpio and Uranus in Aries.
Lots of action.
I will post on these events as they arise.
Where are you feeling lucky?
