Venus in Leo

Romance gets colorful with loving Venus in dramatic Leo

Hollah! Can you hear romance calling? When Venus moves into Leo from August 12 to Sept. 29, 2014, love will be shouting its name from the rooftops.

There's little subtlety about this combination, because the planet of relationship and beauty is passing through the sign of dramatic expression. Expect your romantic life to be a bit more colorful these days, regardless of your birth chart. 

Leo, a fire sign, is about risk. So, Venus' placement here is a reminder to take some chances with creativity and openings of the heart. Sure, it's possible that you'll go overboard and let your imagination turn a mild flirtation into the love affair of the century. But, that's part of the fun of Venus in Leo.

We're not here now to play it safe, to carefully monitor and control our feelings, but rather to recapture the hopefulness of childhood. This is a time when wounds may be set aside (at least partially), allowing us to let love flow without restriction or fear. Excesses are possible, even likely, but a truly open heart only leads to greater opportunities to share, connect and create.

Venus in Leo reminds us that we need to be adored now, not just simply liked or appreciated. Pride expands, which can, of course, lead to hurt feelings if one does not receive adequate recognition. Be generous in giving praise, while allowing others to show their appreciation of you, as well. The challenge here is to combine the willfulness of Leo with the responsiveness of Venus. Successful relationships are based on listening, something worth remembering at this time.

The dramatic expression of Venus in Leo can be readily seen through a collection of people who exemplify this combination. The wildly inventive Spanish architect Antoni Gaudi ("gaudy") personifies the joyous creativity of Venus in Leo. Show biz icons Lauren Bacall, Bob Fosse, Barbara Walters and Tom Cruise are also part of this group.

Gestalt guru Fritz Perls was born with Venus in Leo, as were designers Joshua Logan and Pierre Cardin, author Jacqueline Susann, artist Andy Warhol, financier Michael Milken and magician David Copperfield.

Venus in Leo includes superstar performers Whitney Houston, Madonna, Michael Jackson and Paula Abdul. With Venus in Leo, Amy Fisher, Xaviera Hollander, John Holmes, Jessica Hahn and Pamela Anderson have achieved fame through sex. Yet, the higher side of Venus in Leo love is found in the charts of the Dalai Lama, Mother Teresa and Mary Baker Eddy.

Venus in Leo is a much easier placement than Venus in Virgo, whereby love does not come easily but always at a price. Love is deep but often hidden behind a wall of fear and self-analysis. Love must be practical and yet is not always the most balanced, Virgos being givers. Leos, especially those with Leo suns are more likely to get what they want in love.

I found three women in my life with Venus in Leo to be the most difficult females I ever encountered. They are extremely vain and self centered and will not tolerate any other female being attractive...

They are the classic, "Mirror, Mirror on the wall..." evil doers.

Solar Eclipse in Pisces

By Maria DeSimone

Close your eyes, and imagine you've just stepped outside into a garden or forest on an early spring day -- moments after a heavy rain shower. Looking around, you see that every blade of grass, tree, flower and patch of earth has a dewy glow. You inhale deeply; the smell of wet, fertile earth fills your lungs. Instantly, your spirits lift. Ah, there's nothing quite like the scent of the outdoors on a spring day -- right after it rains.
