Venus, the yin principle of receptivity, enters the fire sign Leo. Venus in Leo values generosity, recognition, and acknowledgement. This is the Queen of all she surveys, present and passionate, willing to take the reins of leadership to ensure that everything is in its rightful place and everyone receives what is theirs to receive. Including her.
In the language of Shamanic Egyptian Astrology, Venus is aligned with Isis, Queen Mother of Heaven. Leo is aligned with Anubis at the point in his journey when he must release his attachment to his wound of abandonment. Anubis is not alone; everyone on Earth is abandoned in some way. The wounds inflicted early in our lives are the hardest to release. They become braided into the structure of our ego identity and periodically repeat themselves through experiences that reinforce the original wound. Our unconscious attachment to our wound can only be released by embarking on a process of personal healing that includes honest self-examination.
Natives born with Venus in Leo want to be recognized for their inherent value, something we can all relate to. In its shadow expression, this position will focus on all the ways in which they are ignored and dismissed. If these individuals continue to look outside of themselves for affirmation, they will only see the ways in which it is denied. Ultimately, this is about learning to recognize and acknowledge oneself. Once we learn to do this, we ascend naturally to our rightful place in the world. We find our sovereignty and our passion for life.
Venus will remain in Leo from September 6 through October 2.
