This is our last week of Leo. The Sun enters Virgo Wednesday. The month is overshadowed by Venus in the sign of Cancer. Venus is the Soul (star) of the Earth, where our God (Sanat Kumara) came from and these mornings, Venus is the Morning Star. Mars is always in the news these days. But Mars is humanity’s past. Venus is our future. Returning to Mars is a retrograde action.
Most of us consider Venus in terms of sentimental love. Venus offers us a sense of unity, yes, and a magnetic quality of merging. But this unity and merging, is the result of knowledge, the gaining of concrete and scientific knowledge (Ray 5). Venus’s influence is not a mystical, emotional, passionate feeling (that’s Mars). It’s highly organized, scientific, mental planet that helped bring forth the Internet and overshadows all scientists in their search for scientific truth.
Venus in Cancer, till Sept. 7, brings to our awareness the subtleties of beauty, grace, culture and art in our home (personal). It also informs us we must create sustaining nourishment for all of humanity (Cancer), especially for our future, where foods, medicines and water sources will be compromised. Venus in Cancer develops great intelligence, nourishing and sustaining all forms of love and connectivity. Venus in Cancer creates the necessary values of giving and sharing forming the basis of the new world community. This nurturing then becomes universal, creating equal human rights for all of humanity. Very esoteric and very meaningful, this has applications for our future and how we create that future.

ARIES: You find it important for beauty, peace and harmony be that which comforts you at home. Perhaps you will look around your environments realizing more quality, luxury and comfort are needed. You think about your childhood home, your parent’s marriage, and the intelligence and love imparted there. You either imitate this way of living or revolutionize it.
TAURUS: You always choose to be kind, to do no harm, to be tactful and likeable. You learn during these weeks to provide others with more compliments and recognition. You’re sensitive to diplomacy and sometimes, so that others do not hurt, you remain silent. You have very high intelligence which you hide. You are also at times, mischievous and ornery.
GEMINI: It’s important to hear during these times that you are cared for and loved. You may not say this to others much but you need to have it said to you. But do tell those you love and who love you that you feel safe and secure with them. And thank them. What you seek most right now are things simple, trustworthy and genuine. Be sure you have these Soul qualities, too.
CANCER: The planets are affecting you in such a way that you are more sensitive, vulnerable, more aware and perceptive. Give to yourself all that you need during this time. You also may need to tend to your health and well-being with more focus. Less acidic foods, more alkaline for balance. You will feel the difference.
LEO: Parts of your life become more and more hidden, just for a while. In terms of love, it’s like you’ve closed the door and gone into hiding. Secrets become interesting, you (or others acting out your transits) speak in whispers. There’s also a feeling that some things — people, situations — have ended. It’s not apparent at first but then you begin to feel sadness and melancholy. This passes. But you learn what you are lonely for.
VIRGO: You seek someone to share your interests. You seek happiness and friendships and group interactions. You seek peacefulness, a bit of romance tinged with friendship. You teeter between depth and impersonality wanting to trust. You’re here and there with your thinking about this. You want to feel empowered but sometimes daily like feels wounding. Relationships change.
LIBRA: In relationships you find yourself choosing to harmonize rather than to challenge. In groups of friends you may meet someone very intelligent, reminding you of someone. You remember your schooling and see friends from those times. Someone makes you very happy. You value them and bring to them more love and care. You don’t talk about it. You protect them from harm.
SCORPIO: You are recognized for your work performance, seen as responsible, likeable, with appropriate authority, able to negotiate and be social at the same time. All in terms of your profession. There’s some ambition for something new, something managerial mixed with art, creativity and your particular talent. Opportunities come your way. Keep a sensible heart throughout.
SAGITTARIUS: Several things keep coming to the surface or showing up in your life. Things financial through a deep intimate connection, sharing power and finances, discussing emotional topics, seeking depth of union. Then there’s the unusual, where routine simply become a grave dissatisfaction. The appeal is other people and places, attractive and charming and rather exotic. Synthesize all of it.
CAPRICORN: A most important task for Capricorns is paying special attention to partners, intimates, friends and those close to you. Personal, one-on-one interactions are needed for those who love you. Offer yourself, with intention and heart dedication, to be more present, to love more. Observe carefully the needs of those in your life. One can radiating love yet still be unaware of the needs of others. Do you recognize the subtle difference?
AQUARIUS: Above all other things you do this month, make sure the work environment is harmonious and peaceful, friendly and tidy, generous and a pleasure for everyone. Call for team spirit, ask everyone to be cooperative and share tasks. The outcome is everyone begins to recognize your gifts and appreciates you more and more. Wherever you are, home is.
PISCES: You find yourself more loving and appreciative. You see the gifts of those around you, recognizing and complimenting them. You realize the discomfort of your environments and seek to understand comfort. You never exhibit aggression. Instead a silent magnetism surrounds you. People are attracted to something quiet and silent within. It’s important to have several creative outlets at this time — art, dance, drama, theatre. For fun.
