Knowing Venus will be entering Libra next Monday, September 29, brings a smile to my face. Venus is so very happy in her home sign. She puts an extra sparkle in those already gorgeous Libra smiles. Libra celebrates peace and beauty, both things Venus is comfortable with.
Since Libra is an air sign, those with this Venus natally appreciate all that is beautiful in a rather cerebral way. Unlike Venus in Taurus who is very sensual and enjoys the physical pleasures, Venus in Libra is rather prudish. She would rather drink in the beauty around her with her eyes and ears. Her home is usually lovely and tranquil if at all possible. Vulgar people, noise, bad smells and rude behaviors are all bound to leave Venus in Libra cold and unhappy. You probably won’t find people with Venus in Libra hanging out in smoky bars chatting up the rough trade!
Making her even more sensitive to any disturbances in the atmosphere is an inconjunct to Neptune in Pisces on October 3. Good time to enjoy a movie about star-crossed lovers or read sad poetry written by someone wallowing in the depths of unrequited love. Hard aspects between Venus and Neptune do tend to glorify the sacrifices one makes for love. I’m not a big fan myself but my Venus is in cheerful, blunt Sagittarius!
The following week Venus will run up against the dynamic duo of Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn. First Venus will square Pluto in Capricorn at 11° on October 8 before opposing Uranus in Aries at 14° on October 11. Right off hand, I’d say budding love affairs which began when Neptune was beguiling Venus the week before may run into a rough patch. It would be wise to avoid overly controlling behaviors or being too insistent on being able to do whatever whenever. Venus in Libra is a big fan of moderation and decorum.
The fun begins when Jupiter in Leo shows up with flowers and compliments on October 14 via a sextile to Venus. Speaking of fine compliments, Mercury will conjoin Venus in Libra on October 17 and enable lovers everywhere to find exactly the right words to win over the one they have fallen in love with. Over the weekend on October 19, there is an excellent sextile between Venus and a playful Mars in Sagittarius. Mars in Sagittarius likes to seduce with humor and Venus in Libra will be happy to play along.
Venus almost catches up to the Libra Sun before leaving Libra but doesn’t quite make it. On October 23, Venus slides into the mysteries of Scorpio and finally conjoins the Sun in that sign on October 25 . . . and that’s a story for another day.
Celebrate Venus’s stay in Libra by taking time to watch a sunset or visit your favorite art gallery with your favorite person since this Venus loves to share her pleasures with another. Use your indoor voice at all times and make an effort to be tactful and diplomatic with your loved ones. Except for the turmoil from about October 6 to October 13, Venus’s stay in Libra ought to be quite pleasant.
