Venus is the Goddess of Attraction and Relating. Libra, an Air sign, is ruled by Venus, these qualities are his bread and butter.
On Monday, Aphrodite will move from Virgo to the 7th sign of Libra. Both Virgo Venus and Libra Venus are finely elegant ladies, the latter is simply more comfortable, nay insists upon more, flirting and chatting. Virgo Venus’ main goal was to attract health, diet and exercise into the conversation.
Now there is a change—we will attract harmony, fairness and grace to our relationships at this time. Where it felt good to take care of our routines in Virgo, it is now going to feel good to take care of our partnerships through pleasing the other with the Planet of Love’s ingress into Libra.
So, shall we get acquainted with the Goddess of Beauty here in the first sign above the Descendant?
Ok, one way to get our heads around this lovely deity is to understand that Venus also rules Taurus.
What, might you ask, is the primary difference between Libra and the 2nd sign?
Well, it is the difference between Earth and Air. Taurus rules money and possessions—our value as earners and merit through self-esteem and self-worth. Cold hard cash and solid confidence (Taurus) vs. intangibles such as popularity and social decorum. Libra also rules possessions of a kind. But they are the relational variety. Libra Venus’ worth is intricately tied to the wealth he feels or not in the exchanges of sentiment and cerebral ideas with others—family, friends, partners, the stranger at the grocery store.
Venus rules what makes us happy. Libra rules diplomacy and marriage—keeping the peace and balancing the needs of both partners in a coupling. Libra Venus needs pleasant interaction and intimate connecting with others to stay in balance herself.
Man, she just wants everyone to be nice and happy and most of all to like HER!!
While in Libra, Venus will catch up with the Sun by mid-October and spend nearly a month cutting a rug through the signs of Libra and Scorpio with the Luminary. It will be double or nothing hobnobbing, social niceties will be at their peak. Libra needs to mend shattered connections and bring fairness to situations where justice is lacking.
And boy, is she ever good at it!
No other sign is made or broken by relational success or discord. Peaceful bonds with the other are of utmost importance and we will all gravitate in the upcoming weeks to this mantra.
