Happy Solar Return to Leo Season!
Happy Solar Return, cosmic Lion!
Get ready, because your yearly horoscope is here to guide you through the exciting adventures that await you! As the fiery and confident sign of the zodiac, you are known for your boldness and leadership qualities. This year, the stars have aligned to bring you an abundance of opportunities and growth in various aspects of your life.
As the Sun return home to Leo this year, Venus also in Leo begins its retrograde motion. This is significant because it marks the beginning of the alignment of the "Venus Star Point," which occurs every eight years in same sign when Venus conjuncts with the Sun to form a five-pointed star pattern in astrological chart. This unique alignment blends the energies of both the Sun and Venus, and activations to the Venus Star Points on our chart can correspond to major events and turning points in our lives. While there is much more to explore, let's just say that for now, the activation of Venus in your solar return chart creates a powerful and transformative energy that will guide you through the journey of this solar year.
As we explore the astrological energies of this solar year, it's impossible to disregard the significant influence of not only a Venus star pattern but also a grand square. This square pattern involves Lunar Nodes with newly shifted signs in Aries and Libra, as well as retrograding Pluto in Capricorn, with the Sun pulling the karmic thread. Although the square has shifted from fixed to cardinal, the Sun is bringing it back to the fixed sign of Leo. So, while Venus star point creates a turning point, yet, combined with the energy of grand square, indicates that this is still in the run-up time before the transformation begins.
With the conjunction of Mercury and Black Moon Lilith in your sign, along with the square aspect to Uranus in Taurus, it is crucial for you to be mindful and resist impulsive urges. Taking a moment to reflect before expressing yourself may be called for. The presence of the Moon and Mars in Virgo also highlights the importance of taking a methodical and deliberate approach to your actions. Furthermore, since Virgo governs your personal financial sector, it could be an indication of how you need to manage your finances this solar year. Therefore, it's crucial to be patient and deliberate in your actions, mindful of the ongoing astrological influences this solar year.
August 13th is the day Venus conjuncts with the Sun, forming a special alignment known as "Venus Cazimi." This term refers to a moment when Venus is at less than 17 minutes away from the center of the Sun, allowing us to access the full potential of Venusian energy. During this time, it is said that we may experience a sense of heightened creativity, inspiration, and a deeper connection to our desires and values. Meanwhile, the trine of Mercury and Mars with Jupiter and the sextile of the Moon in Cancer indicate a time of financial solutions, expansion, and opportunities. So, it is the perfect day to embrace cosmic energies and ride the wave of fortune. Perform some magic and indulge in rituals to draw in divine energy, aligning with the frequency of abundance.
As Venus turns direct in early September, the Sun will be in Virgo, your financial sector, will be in a harmonious trine with Jupiter. This alignment is a great sign that your finances are expanding. However, since Jupiter is in stationed retrograde and Mercury is also retrograde, it's important to review and tie up any loose ends before moving forward. Also, keep in mind that whatever you plant during this time will have a long-term growth span. So, take your time and be deliberate in your actions, and resist impulsive urges. With patience and intention, you can make the most of the astrological influences and find success in your financial endeavors.
At the same time, the Sun-Mercury conjunction in Virgo forms a trine with the Moon-Jupiter conjunction in Taurus heralds a promising era of professional growth, expansion, and opportunities. While the prevalence of retrograde planets may suggest that your old position or boss is coming back into the picture, it could also indicate the need to realign your business trajectory with its original path. Embrace this cosmic energy and make any necessary adjustments with confidence and grace.
When Venus enters Virgo on October 8th, she will be met with Black Moon Lilith. This encounter has the potential to stir up deep-seated emotions surrounding relationships, self-worth, and personal values. Additionally, the opposition of Venus and Saturn may cause tension and frustration in matters of love and finance. But this is how we know that the cosmos has our back! Because by now, you have no doubt in what you want and what you want to create, expressing yourself from the center of your heart. So, this cosmic event will provide an opportunity for you to confront these challenges and grow stronger in your emotional resilience and self-love. It can also lead to a deeper understanding of yourself and our connections with others.
In November, as Venus shifting signs Virgo to Libra, she will be part of yet another astrological pattern called “Mystic Rectangle”. This configuration involves four planets working together in harmony, offering a chance to achieve inner harmony if we can face the challenges with consciousness. So, for you, dear Lion, this alignment encourages you to embrace your inner power and navigate any challenges that may be presented at this time with strength and compassion.
