After the incredible experience of the eclipse, you’re probably wondering what else the world of astrology has going on for you in its wake. For starters, Mercury is still retrograde until September 5th, but with Venus moving into Leo this week, everyone will be able to catch a much-needed break. For more specifics based on your sign, check out what the week has in store for you, courtesy of astrologer Krystal Smith.
Aries (March 21–April 19)
Venus just moved into the passionate sign of Leo, jump-starting the week with a heavy dose of romance! If your relationship has been feeling a little too routine lately, this transition will help bring some playfulness and spontaneity back into it. If you’re single, don’t be afraid to make the first move when meeting someone new as your charm is off the charts this week. No one will be able to resist you!
Taurus (April 20–May 20)
Your ruler, Venus, has just moved into the fiery sign of Leo. As much as your sign loves to be comfortable and slightly self-indulgent, you may want to skip the breakfast in bed and get out and about instead. Leo loves to be center of attention and your attracting power is especially strong right now. Be prepared to have all eyes on you until September 19. This transit is likely to bring a spark back into your relationship or if you’re flying solo, a romance could surely blossom!
Gemini (May 21–June 20)
If Mercury retrograde is getting you down, don’t fret because Venus has officially moved into Leo, making you feel more like your social butterfly self again! Keep the conversation flirtatious and fun, because communication can still go awry until September 5 when Mercury goes direct.
Cancer (June 21–July 22)
You may be feeling more extroverted than usual this week with Venus moving into Leo. Leo loves attention and knows how to demand it. If there’s something you’ve been wanting to say to your significant other or crush now would be a great time to tell them how you feel. Not only will you be able to grab their attention you’ll also find that your words flow with ease.
Leo (July 23–August 22)
Lucky you, Leo! Venus just moved into your sign making you absolutely irresistible! This is a great transit to balance out the difficult Mercury in retrograde phase, which probably has your outgoing sign feeling a bit dull. No worries though, because communications will seem to flow much more harmoniously and you will find yourself getting along with everyone. If you’ve been experiencing any disagreements with your loved ones lately expect them to come to a conclusion by the end of the week.
Virgo (August 23–September 22)
Mercury may be retrograde in your sign, but this week you will be able to shake off some of its drabness, as Venus has entered the glamorous sign of Leo. Surround yourself with beauty this week by sprucing up your wardrobe and buying some fresh flowers, your sign can get caught up with caring for others at times, so make sure to put yourself first this week.
Libra (September 23–October 22)
Your ruler, Venus, moved into the fabulous sign of Leo this week giving you permission to be bold! Your sign seeks harmony and balance, which can often leave you sacrificing something for the sake of keeping the peace. This week the roles will reverse and you’ll find your loved ones appreciating your perspective more than usual.
Scorpio (October 23–November 21)
This week begins with Venus moving into Leo bringing some much-needed harmony and balance to your partnerships, both romantic and platonic. The intensity and passion reside, however, with Venus in this fiery sign and the moon in Scorpio. There may be a lot of sexual tension in the air, which can add some interesting (and HOT!) interactions when it comes to your love life. If you’re single just be aware that these feelings may be fleeting so don’t forget to use your logical mind when it comes to new love interests.
Sagittarius (November 22–December 21)
Venus has moved into your fellow fire sign of Leo, which will start the week off with a much-needed spark! Your optimistic sign might be feeling a little down lately with Mercury retrograde and Saturn finishing up its transit in your sign. Venus in Leo will certainly spice things up for you this week by adding some creativity to your daily routine.
Capricorn (December 22–January 19)
Your ruler, Saturn, just went direct after the long retrograde phase that began on April 6 which will give you some room to finally breathe. And with Venus entering Leo this week, you’ll be able to put more energy into your love life and creative outlets. If you’ve been putting something off, like that ceramic class you’ve been wanting to take or reservations at that new dinner spot downtown, now is the time to let loose and go do it!
Aquarius (January 20–February 18)
Venus entering Leo this week will give you a surprising desire to get intimate. You might find yourself ready to talk about future plans with your partner that you usually avoid. Any plans made during this time are better off being postponed until September 5 though, when Mercury turns direct.
Pisces (February 18–March 20)
You may find yourself wanting to take charge more than usual this week with Venus entering Leo. Your sign is known for going with the flow, but this week you’ll be front and center. Romance is in the air too, so take the initiative when it comes to your love life. You may find that your partner loves this more passionate forward side of you!
