Venus in Leo: relating with confidence and creativity
With Venus in Leo from 27 June 2021 you may feel the urge to express your feminine side more openly and dramatically than usual. You’re likely to feel more confident about your style and appearance, more extroverted and less self-conscious. This is no time for hiding your talents away. You’ll want to be seen and appreciated for what you have to offer the world.
Affection will come more easily in relationships, but you’ll probably be more interested in how much others love and admire you, than in letting others know they are loved. Unfortunately Venus in Leo can be a little vain, and relies heavily on the approval of those around her to feel good, so watch out that your need for self validation doesn’t become too greedy!
Venus in Leo can also be something of a drama queen. Be careful you don’t blow little things out of proportion and create an unnecessary scene. Remember that just because it feels like a big deal doesn’t mean it is. Keep things in perspective by imagining how someone else might experience the same situation. There is always another side to the story.
Use this time to let the people you love know how much you appreciate them and do it in style: write a passionate love letter, buy someone flowers or dedicate a song request. Venus in Leo is anything but subtle!
If you have this placement natally you’ll probably find this transit particularly empowering, however be aware that others may find you a little over-powering! Try not to hog the limelight and remember that although individual self expression is important we also need to consider the needs of others.
Be aware that Venus in Leo will activate the ongoing square between Saturn and Uranus, creating a t-square, between the 5 and 12 July. This will bring the challenging energy of the square into our relationships where it may erupt in a rather dramatic and fiery way!
