This week is busier than the New York subway at rush hour. So, buckle your seat belt!
This week Venus moves out of the sign of her fall (Virgo) and into the sign she rules (Libra). In traditional astrology, Venus is considered the lesser benefic, and moving into her own sign gives her power to maneuver in ways that are helpful to our growth. Now, this doesn’t mean you can sit on your couch and eat a package of Godiva chocolate (although Venus would love to do that), a planet in its own dignity still requires work.
In many astrological cookbooks, Venus in Libra relates to finding the perfect and ideal mate. Often our ideals of relationships look good on paper (after all, who doesn’t want a tall dark handsome stranger?), but our ideals often don’t work well in real life. Furthermore, you need to acknowledge that whoever you get involved with has romantic ideals of their own, which can bring forth complications, especially if one person gets their needs met more than another.
Practically speaking, Venus in Libra helps us look at whether our relationships are balanced. Sometimes they are not, and you can use this placement to bring them back to center. It’s also a time to seek compromises when necessary for the overall health of the relationship. Additionally, with Venus in Libra, you can seek new relationships (wait until Mercury goes direct before committing to one). If you’ve been holding back and waiting for the right to connect with someone, take advantage of this energy, because the time is now.
