Venus in Leo Horoscopes – June 5, 2023
Venus, the planet of love, beauty, and connection, will journey through Leo from June 5th to October 8th, 2023. Venus in Leo turns heads. Dresses loudly. Claims space. Venus in Leo is all about loving boldly and loving on purpose. Playing boldly and playing on purpose. For Venus in Leo, pleasure is a ritual, a right, and a rite.
Venus normally only spends a few weeks in each sign, so this four-month detour is unusual for the planet of pleasure. We have Venus’ upcoming retrograde to thank for such an extended stay. Venus stations retrograde every 18 months, and this year, that retrograde will unfold between July 22nd and September 3rd. During this time, Venus will urge each of us to identify a pattern, habit, or narrative around love, intimacy, pleasure, or beauty that we are ready to reclaim, retrieve, or heal.
Venus retrogrades require that we peer inward. Investigate how your relationships mirror the past parts of you that have felt loved or unloved, nurtured or neglected. Sure, this kind of work can feel like a buzz kill sometimes — especially because Venus in Leo is so playful at heart. But it also offers the medicine that will help your heart regenerate after past aches.
