Venus visits Leo- July 12- 1.34 am EDT to Aug 05- 11.27 am EDT- I use the word “visits” because this is not the natural home of Venus. Taurus (what we value) and Libra (relationship balance) are the two signs she rules. When the planet of self-worth and desire for harmony visits another sign those themes are influenced by that sign. Venus in Leo is outgoing, social, and generous. Party time would be a good description. But that is on the material/physical level. Spiritually Venus challenges us to be centered in our compassionate heart as we interact with others. Leo is the sign that rules the heart but also the ego personality. There is more than enough of the latter being expressed in the world these days.
Venus is a 5th Ray planet and Leo is a 5th Ray sign. It is the Ray of Knowledge and Healing and its kingdom is current humanity. Healing is so desperately needed at this time. Let us all use the gift of Venus in Leo to share compassionate love in our world and The World. The Archangels who guide this Venus journey are Raphael, the shinning one who heals, and Mother Mary, Divine Unconditional love. The Clan Mother is She Who Heals. She teaches us to serve the truth by honouring the life force in all creation.
Venus in Leo is a very creative energy. I like to call it Creation Energy. Our Animal Totem guide is Salmon, perseverance and determination to create the new. So let us all make a commitment to creating a new world based on Compassion and Love. When Venus enters Virgo on Aug 05 she is The Rainbow Bridge of Healing into Wholeness.
Mercury visits Leo- July 13- 8.47 pm EDT to July 30- 2.18 pm EDT- The planet of our thoughts and perceptions takes on the colours of Leo as described for the Venus Journey. Mercury is the natural ruler of Gemini (logic vs intuition) and Virgo (perfection vs wholeness). In Leo, Mercury asks us to choose to be centered in our compassionate hearts as we process information rather than our ego. He is a 4th Ray planet. That is the Ray of Harmony Through Conflict and that is the Ray of the human kingdom. Because Mercury is in Leo he also carries the vibration of the 5th Ray of Healing. So while Mercury travels through Leo he is also asking us to be centered in our compassionate hearts so healing happens. When he enters Virgo on July 30 he too will be The Rainbow Bridge of Healing into wholeness.
Mercury goes on one of his retrogrades journeys Aug 30 to Sept 22. He will be in Virgo from July 30 until Oct 07. The Rainbow Bridge is open to us all.
I am still reading “The Power of Now” by Eckhart Tolle. I used “to think” my mind was pretty grounded. It has been amazing to “watch” my mind and how scattered my thoughts can be. All this thanks to our puppy Prince. As I spend time with him I am learning to know myself in a new way. Perhaps the coming Mercury retrograde will gift us all with that opportunity.
