Venus in Leo
Venus is ruled by the Sun in this sign. This indicates a noetic quality and ideal as to what is beautiful. They like elegance and are attracted to a social atmosphere filled with important and interesting people and are especially fond of large parties. They are romantic and tend to be physically attractive to the opposite sex. They sometimes have an interest in modeling or they may be involved in work with theatrical makeup or casting for plays or movies. Under negative aspects they may be accused of social climbing or of being snobs and can be too class conscious; or their idea of what is beautiful borders on the gawdy and trashy. Under some rare conditions where Venus is afflicted, it can be an indication that the native is a social outcast, because the Sun as ruler shows one who stands alone, unique and separate from others.
In a diurnal chart, the heat and dryness of the day cause a rarification of the social atmosphere of the native, making for contacts with important people. The native is very outgoing and active in the local nightlife. They tend to be quite popular, and occasionally become well known and famous. However, they may become involved in scandal from time to time because Venus is not of the sect in favor.
In a nocturnal chart, the cool and moistness of the night supports the easy going nature of Venus. They tend to be less self conscious as a result. The native is elegant and refined and often has modeling potential, but is a little less interested in climbing the social ladder. They prefer intimate romantic settings and are fortunate in love.
