When lovely Venus enters Leo, the most expressive of all the zodiac signs, we’re ready to shout our love from the rooftops. Leo is a Fire sign that’s all about creativity, showing off, and speaking from the heart, so this energy lights up love like a torch. Expect playful dates, loud declarations of love, and maybe even a few jealous tantrums. Big feelings will be expressed now, one way or another!
No one wants to simply be liked or appreciated when Venus is in Leo, we want to be adored. This is a time to take risks and make grand gestures, so those who play it safe could be left on the sidelines during this transit.
Clearly, love isn’t calm or easygoing while Venus is in Leo. While the Lion just wants to play and enjoy life, Leo is also a sign that’s full of drama, and if we feel like we’re not getting the attention or recognition we deserve, we may lash out at lovers who are only doing their best. During this transit we may even start a passionate argument just to stir things up and feel like the center of attention again. Remember, there is no "i" in "we," and the more we focus on only ourselves and our own needs, the more likely we are to end up with just that: only ourselves.
Money is a means to an end while Venus is in Leo. It’s all about making yourself and the ones you care about feel like a million bucks. Leo is an extravagant sign who appreciates glitz, glitter, and glamour, so it’s natural to splurge a bit during this transit. But pampering ourselves will only bring us a certain amount of satisfaction. Leo is a supremely generous sign, and spending money on thoughtful or over-the-top gifts for others will make us even happier than treating ourselves now.
Venus is Leo is an especially colorful time that can re-energize your relationships with others, and remind you that a life without a little bit of fun and excitement is no life at all.
Leo the Lion knows that life without enjoyment is no life at all. All work and no play makes us all dull. So when Mars moves through this fun-loving sign, we’re encouraged to not just recognize the positive moments, but to actually make time for more happiness, excitement, and play.
Mars in Leo is also a time to follow your heart. Leo rules the heart, and his enthusiastic passion is rewarded during this transit. Adopting the Lion’s confidence and courage helps us pursue whatever it is that sets our souls on fire. Outside of Mars in Leo, there are few chances to reach this level of creativity and eagerness in our lives, which is why we must relish this opportunity!
While confidence is a good thing, overconfidence can lead to trouble, and that’s definitely a risk while Mars is in Leo. We think we deserve the rewards without doing the work, and deserve unwavering respect whether we give it or not. Leo is a stellar performer, but acting the part isn’t enough. If you want to be admired, you must be admirable. If you want to be a leader, you must lead. If you want to be respected, you must be respectable.
Enthusiasm is contagious while Mars is in Leo but so is drama. We crave more attention during this transit, and when we don’t get it, we feel offended. Because Leo is the sign of expression, we won’t sit idly by. We need to roar to show how we feel, which could lead to one or two explosive situations.
The best lesson to learn while Mars moves through Leo is that the ego can be both a beautiful and a disastrous thing. We feel proud when our egos are fed, but offended when they are hurt or ignored. This transit offers you a chance to reflect on what ego means to you, and to balance the role it plays in your life.
