This there is a lot of planetary shifts and changes. Mercury moves into Leo (bringing grand plans to the fore), on Wednesday, Jupiter Retrograde moves back into Aquarius and then on Thursday, Mars moves into…
When Venus sails lavishly through Leo, the fifth sign of the zodiac, how does it affect the collective?
This is where love takes center stage – literally. With Venus in the sign of the Lion, considerations of the heart only matter, hell, only exist when you express them. As the most warm-hearted of this signs, if you’re not gazing into the eyes of your mate, showering them with a hundred compliments a minute and telling them exactly how much you adore them, you may as well take a hike.
Under this astrology, we all want to feel loved … and have the evidence to prove it.
If you’re out on dates this month, make sure you bring a gift. Or two. And order the Champagne – nothing less will do. You should also make a little more of an effort when it comes to your grooming – any potential love match will want to know you’ve gone to some effort for them (and you’ll likely want to spend enough time taming that Leo mane too – making that grand entrance grand enough!)
It’s not to say we get more demanding of our lovers under this sky, it's just that Leo knows it’s special … so under its watchful eye, we all want to feel that extra bit special too.
With Venus in Leo, being appreciated matters. And not only in romantic exchanges – whether it’s letting that car pull out of a junction or going the extra mile with a report your boss asked you to write at work unless you receive the appropriate (scratch that, gushing) thanks you believe you deserve, it’ll annoy you to the core. So try to remember this when your nearest and dearest does something a little bit extra for you this month.
Sensuality also gets a boost under Venus in Leo. This fire sign (along with cousins Aries and Sagittarius) know the meaning of passion so get ready to radiate, the month looks hot! You'll likely be feeling extra fun-loving and flirtatious too. If you're coupled up, this could create a sticky spot or two with your SO - watch out for their (or your) Leonine possessive streak if it seems your love affair's not being taken seriously enough. Try to keep things harmonious - remember who your number 1 is.
In beauty, expect to be drawn in by the lavish and opulent under this astrology. Your surroundings will need to be as flamboyant as you’re feeling, so whether it’s cocktails with umbrellas at the bar, leopard print trousers for work or splashing out on that golden caviar-infused face cream, it’s going to feel mighty fine to indulge (so try not to come down too hard on your lover when they blow the month’s food budget on those 100% jasmine silk bedsheets they’ve been swooning over…!)
