Venus is on Leo 25: TOTALLY CONCENTRATED UPON INNER SPIRITUAL ATTAINMENT, A YOGI IS SITTING
This Symbol can bring a strong sense of the need for a sense of ‘Inner Spiritual Attainment”. There can be a strong pull towards meditation, yoga, being still, wanting time alone or seeking a sense of transcendence from this world. The Yogi can be very still, or, perhaps there’s a need for stilling the mind against outside forces. The events of the world can intrude on one’s sense of peace and quiet and there may need to be a need of cutting off, shutting out or going on your own way, at least for a while.
This degree can see us sitting in peaceful contemplation, or, as in the photo below, sitting on a bed of nails.
This Symbol shows a ‘Hindu Yogi’ sitting in contemplation, totally concentrating on inner spiritual attainment. It implies a desire to contact spirit and to be in touch with one’s body, often through the practice of meditation or yoga. This is a wonderful degree of spiritual striving, however there could be a feeling of imbalance; it is as if some aspects of your life are put on hold in favor of some central issue. This can lead to a loss of holistic balance if you’re ‘totally concentrated upon inner spiritual attainment’. Being too committed to spiritual or emotional concerns can lead one to lose touch with more immediate, physical matters. However, a sense of focus on something that is very important can bring enormous rewards.
