Venus joining the Sun in the heart of her retrograde season only happens once every 8 years in Leo. This rare alignment offers us a unique opportunity to delve into love, creativity, and authenticity.

At its core, the Venus Star represents a powerful convergence of Venus' cyclic journey with the Sun, creating a potent portal of Venusian energy. In the majestic sign of Leo, this particular Venus Star invites us to explore and express our heart's desires with unapologetic authenticity and passion.

However, this celestial spectacle is not without its intricate aspects. An applying square from retrograde Venus and the Sun to Uranus in Taurus ignites a spark of innovation and rebellion in matters of love and creativity. The tension between the fiery Leo energy and the earthy Uranus in Taurus encourages us to break free from conventional norms and embrace a more daring and unconventional approach to relationships and self-expression.

Simultaneously, a separating square to Jupiter in Taurus adds an expansive and indulgent touch to the Venus Star's influence. This aspect encourages us to amplify our desires, seeking both pleasure and growth in our creative pursuits and relationships. While the tension between Venus and Jupiter may present challenges, it also offers us an opportunity to find the balance between extravagance and grounded authenticity.

As the Venus Star forms an applying biquintile to Neptune in Pisces, the mystical and dreamy energies of Neptune infuse the Leo passion with a touch of ethereal enchantment. This harmonious aspect encourages us to tap into our imagination, infusing our creative endeavors with a sense of otherworldly inspiration. It calls for us to listen to the whispers of our intuition and dive into the depths of our artistic expression.

In astrology, Leo symbolizes the heart center, the space where our most authentic and radiant selves reside. The Venus Star's journey through Leo invites us to embrace our unique qualities, talents, and passions, and to radiate our true essence out into the world. It is a reminder that we are each a masterpiece in our own right, and our creative endeavors and relationships can be a canvas through which we express our inner light.

With this New Venus Star being born, let us remember that we are co-creators of our lives, shaping our experiences with our intentions and actions. This cosmic event invites us to step into the spotlight of our own lives, to love deeply, create passionately, and live authentically. It reminds us that within the vastness of the universe, we are each stars in our own right, illuminating the world with our unique brilliance.

This Venus Star is perfectly timed with the peak of the Perseid Meteor Shower, in the pre-dawn hours of Sunday, August 13th!

So, if you are watching the shooting stars blaze through the sky in the “wee hours” of Sunday, August 13, 2023, take a moment to gaze at the heavens and connect with Venus’ radiant energy. Remember that at the moment of her exact conjunction with the Sun at 4:15 am, she will be below the horizon for those of us in the States, getting ready to rise (sunrise in Los Angeles is 6:13 am, PDT).

If staying up late, or getting up that early is not an option for you, perhaps watching the Sunrise is another possibility. Venus will still be cazimi as she is rising here in the Pacific time zone. Sun gazing could be a great way to connect with this powerful new beginning for love. Make sure that you sun gaze within 30 minutes of the sunrise! A quick Google search will deliver safety tips and the benefits of Sun gazing.

However you choose to connect with this powerful time, I invite you to set intentions for love, creativity, and self-expression, and let Venus’ guiding light inspire you to shine brightly in all that you do. Embrace the magic of this celestial alignment and let it ignite the fires of your heart, guiding you on a journey of love, authenticity, and creative wonder.
