Ana De Mendoza – the Princess of Eboli – was an archetypal Venus in Leo woman. She also had it conjunct Uranus.
Below is an extract from my Astral DNA birth chart report:
Venus conjunction Uranus
Emile Zola, the guy who actually said “If you ask me what I came into this life to do, I will tell you: I came to live out loud” had Venus Conjunct Uranus. They’re relationship iconoclasts who disdain conventional dating/mating values. They bring a unique element to their art, aesthetics or business style.
They can be super-amoral because they find rules outdated. Jordan Belfort, as in The Wolf Of Wall St, is a Venus-Uranus guy. Venus-Uranians need a galaxy’s worth of space and don’t like to have to show their working.
It must have been so hard to be a Venus-Uranian woman in that era. Born on June 29 in 1540, she was Spanish, Cancerian and an avid sportswoman. She kept pet monkeys, lost an eye in a childhood sword fight and married at 13.
Venus conjunct Uranus in Leo can manifest as deathless glamor, style, and charisma
Along with having ten children, she made time for spying, lesbian and mistress scandals. After her husband’s death, she fled to a convent and became known as the “Princess-Nun.”
She disliked the nuns to the extent that they left. The Princess Nun began a new era of life, writing radical speeches and seeking more influence. Sadly, upon her exit from this place, she was arrested and imprisoned on trumped-up charges of treason.
Ana De Mendoza was born centuries before a time when a Venus-Uranus woman had the chance of an entirely free life. Still, Venus in Leo is deathless glamor, style, and charisma. Verdi made an opera out of her life. Several movies and novels celebrated her dash and audacity. She won.
Venus in Leo
Venus in Leo has a cinematic consciousness and high ideals around love. Their golden aura and sunny charisma is hugely attractive, perhaps even to the masses, as in a performance career. But the true love of Venus in Leo is often Art & Beauty in all its forms. Their adoration of music, films, paintings and creativity is no mere affectation. It is deep and abiding. Turn-Ons: Exquisite taste or talent. Downside: Venus in Leo can and will sublimate affection/libido in complex personal grooming rituals if need be. They can be more about the moment – the scene – than the connection. Their ex-lovers become montages in the movie-like memories of Venus in Leo. Unless, of course, the Ex attains renown, in which case Venus in Leo could reconnect with them at Warp Speed.
