As Venus, the planet of all things love and money, moves into the sign of regal grandeur, you might feel like a lion crawling out of its den after a long nap, blinking and stretching in the sun.
All that time you spent hiding in your den was for self-protection. Venus has been hanging out in emotional and intuitive Cancer since May 19, making us all emo AF and giving off vibes that made most of us want to hibernate.
Think of the planets that rule each sign: Cancer is ruled by the moon and its element is water. When Venus is in Cancer it highlights any over-sensitivities and neediness that lurks deep within our psyche. It also helps us express our vulnerabilities, which can in turn bring closeness in the relationships that are important to our soul-growth.
Honestly, it can also feel a tad emotionally draining especially when you’re not feeling completely emotionally safe and secure.
Enter Venus in Leo.
Here, we are ruled by the sun, and our element is fire. Known as the planet of the self, the sun is the center of our universe. No more hiding, no more nursing our wounds. Now is the time to tap into the strength-in-vulnerability you just discovered within yourself and realize that therein lies your confidence.
This is the time to get out there, for you to do you — make that money, honey, and put on your CFM shoes!
Let the pampering begin, Aries!

Does it bring me pleasure?
