The radiant planet Venus is called the shepherd’s star, even though it’s not a star at all. As it is never far from the Sun, it often appears, according to its phases, at sunset or sunrise, which must have served as a time marker to punctuate the days of sheep breeders.
A magnitude of -4.58!
As it is close to the Sun and covered by reflective clouds, it is one of the brightest stars in the sky after the Moon and Sun. On September 18, it will reach its maximum brilliance with a magnitude of -4.58. As a reminder, the Sun’s magnitude is -27 and Sirius’ is -1.46. It will therefore be particularly visible on this night.
Greater seductive power
From an astrological point of view, Venus in Leo, at its brightest, will help us to shine even brighter in our social and sentimental lives and, thanks to its sextile to Mars in Libra, will make us more convincing, persuasive and charming. Our power of seduction will be greatly amplified, especially for those born in Leo and Libra. On the other hand, the square of Venus to Jupiter in Taurus could lead us to overindulge in pleasures of all kinds and to excess. Natives of the fixed signs Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius will be the most affected.
Rising star and victories
From a world astrology point of view, this increase in the brightness of Venus in Leo could coincide with the emergence of a new star whose talent is recognized by all. This could be a somewhat sulphurous icon. A certain rise in hedonism and a desire for freedom could be felt. In France, it’s the leisure world and artists who could win a resounding legal victory. The French education system could also assert some of its demands in terms of job stability and economic repercussions.
