Venus the Goddess of Love, Beauty, Relationships and values enters the Royal Sign of Leo June 5 until July 18 where we will be feeling Queenly courageous and passionate in our hearts’ expression.
Venus will turn Retrograde July 25 at ZERO+ degrees Virgo and regresses back into LEO until September 6. Venus turns direct at 14 degrees 23 minutes of Leo and takes until October 9 to bypass Zero degrees Virgo again. That’s 10 weeks spent standing in the shadows of love.
Venus enters her pre-shadow phase on June 21 the Summer Solstice which is highly significant.
VENUS will rendezvous with the SUN/APOLLO at 22 degrees LEO on August 15 which is one of the highlights of the year energetically. My wedding Anniversary is on the 17th.
While Venus is Retrograde for 44 days -also a significant Master number, we will re-immerse ourselves in old love dramas, heart entanglements, rewind our hearts, unbind our hearts, release the courage which we may have held back, relinquish the drama, require respect for women’s power and much more.
Do check out where those degrees are in your astrology charts now.
This is a great time to take stock of where your creativity is, how open your heart is, let your inner child come out and play.
Leo ruled stuff, big ego’s and power struggles will get even more raw, inflamed, hot and passionate, can be big time negative dramas.
Women have long been linked with Lions in mythology. The SPHINX is a half woman half lioness wonder of the world. Ancient Goddesses were depicted as being half lioness in Babylon.
Sekhmet (Sakhmet) is one of the oldest known Egyptian deities. Her name is derived from the Egyptian word “Sekhem” (which means “power” or “might”) often translated as “She who is Powerful”. She is depicted as a lion-headed woman, sometimes with the addition of a sun disc on her head. Her seated statues show her holding the ankh of life, but when she is shown striding or standing she usually holds a sceptre formed from papyrus.
RHEA was the Titan mother of the gods, a goddess of female fertility, motherhood, and generation. Her name means “flow” and “ease.” As the wife of Kronos/Saturn (Time), she represented the eternal flow of time and generations ; as the great Mother (Meter Megale), the “flow” was menstrual blood, birth waters, and milk. She was also a goddess of comfort and ease. She is closely connected to Cybele, the Anatolian mother Goddess, They were both depicted as matronly women, usually wearing a turret crown, and attended by lions.
Venus in Leo goes for the gold, GOLD and SILVER markets and all precious metals usually rise when Planets are in Leo.
