Happy Birthday Leo. Sun enters Leo. Venus Retrogrades in Leo.
A creative and memorable, new Sun cycle in Leo begins today, Saturday evening. We might expect some important and memorable events during the next thirty days that will spark dramatic change in ourselves. If we feel like we have gotten distracted or following a detour or simply want to change our path, this is a great time to seriously invest the mental energy into creating something different.
The Sun in Leo during the next 30 day brings new information, it might ignite our creativity and promotes the release of negative emotions, clears the clutter and builds a platform from which we can fly. Now is the time to let our inner child come out and play. This is a time we can send our spirits into a higher orbit… if we choose.
The Sun in Leo cycle is assisted by a powerful Venus that entered Leo on June 06.2023. A minutes before the Sun enters Leo on Saturday night. Venus, the planet of values, the one that describes who and what we find attractive, is moving into retrograde motion. The planet most closely associated with our attitudes and choices around love and money will metaphorically move backwards until September 3rd. Then it goes Direct to stay with Leo until October 10, when it moves to Virgo.
Venus turns metaphorically backwards every 18 months. This cosmically mandated review is a great time for exploring our creativity as Venus (ruler of Libra and Taurus) is closely associated with culture and artistry. Not to mention, Venus is retrograding in Leo, a sign associated with self-expression, performance, and creativity. Although our minds automatically turn to the usual choices – music, dance, writing, painting, fine arts, and liberal arts, creativity is a quality that runs like a thread throughout our daily lives.
When Venus turns inward, we should be thinking about exploring some new territory, learning some new tricks, attracting something new, or finding a way to use something existing in a new way. Can we re-imagine our lives with existing resources and maybe some new ones? Would we like to add to our repertoire of talents and expertise? How can we bring more beauty and balance into our lives? How can we identify with and express our own voices more effectively?
It’s also a good time to look at our choices concerning love and money. Do you draw back when you think of one or both of these areas? What would make us feel more abundant and successful? Are there shipwrecks we’d like to put to rest or avoid in the future? Knowledge is power; retrogrades are periods of introspection allowing us to see from a different perspective.
Venus can teach us about our values. The retrograde pattern can be a way to get in touch with our authentic creative expression, feel more satisfied with our place in the universe, and help us be filled with desire and expectation without feeling the inevitable discontent. We can learn to accept a greater level of responsibility both for our dreams and their manifestation.
To make the process easy and less painful, if you have a difficult situation, use Leo’s talents: be creative, express your feelings and emotion through writing, painting, dancing, acting. Be dramatic, as a Lion. Be original, show your love, be cheerful and generous, but respect and love yourself first. Be generous, be compassionate, give and receive love without falling in to trap that get you into shameful position. Do not lose connection with the real things and think again what it is going to cost you.
Another indicator that Venus’s passion or obsession during this retro cycle can brings dramatic changes or obstacle is her clashing aspect with Uranus, as it squares the planet of revolution and freedom. This desire can be strong, irresistible, you may feel that you need change, you want to get out of your dull life, to be free, to break the barriers, you want to be happy and child again. Manifest your desire, write it down, share with someone, look at all corners of possibility before you act and break your head.
You can deal with. Yes, you can find your way how to embrace your dark side, hot to accept, understand and express it and to turn it to success, instead of failure. Remember, Lilith is so close to Venus in Leo, you may have desire to express your wilderness or to do something crazy, you may want to experience something you never did before, go ahead, but know that you take risk to break your head or loose what you had built for many year, as Lilith wants attention, adventure, it may be your biggest downfall. You may look in your natal chart and find where your Lilith is, it can give you a hint what Lilith wants from you, where you want to be wild or what is the irresistibly desire that Lilith push you to follow.
Venus throws lights on the area it travels. Now, you may see the truth, now, you can understand something clearly at last. Leo will be most effected-lovers and authority will notice you; you are in the limelight again. Venus works with generosity and passion, it can make you happy, if you did not make mistake during the retro cycle. Venus brings love, harmony, beauty, it heals us, it gives us what we value most.
Venus in Leo effects mostly Leo, Leo Sun, Leo rising, if you have Moon or Venus in Leo. It can bring love lessons or karmic meetings to Aries and Aquarius. Venus will color the life of Taurus and Scorpio, as well, as it squares both signs. Again, look at your chart and see where Leo stays in your Natal chart.
