Venus in Libra 2011

Venus Lingers in Libra September 15 - October 8, 2011

When Venus transits Libra, the concept of interpersonal relationship is highlighted. Venus is the ruler of Libra and while most of us attribute Venus and Libra with Love, there is quite a bit more to the sign and the planet. Libra's also well known for balance and harmony, legal negotiations, business transactions, partnerships and monetary equality. In a nutshell, Libra is renowned for egalitarianism. Connections made while Venus is in Libra are less productive when the events are steeped in hierarchy or disharmony.

The Venus in Libra desire is for comfort and beauty. If money must be spent in order to attain that desire, then the amount will not be the deterrent. There is also the penchant for romance, and all the trappings that go with the rituals of love. However, love making may not be as important as the feelings of sensuality that lead up to the event. The same could hold true while trying to woo a business partnership. The energy that goes into the formation of the partnership feels so much more significant than the actual finalization of the business deal.

The cold side of the Libran Venus is the sometime haughty, "better than thee" attitude that can come through. Even though the belief of being "equal" is the precedence, the airy energies can sometime undo that as we become too indecisive or dive too deep into the game of equalization, forgetting that we are dealing with human emotions, as well. We will still need to make decisions and take actions regardless of whether others feel it is fair.

Individuals who are born with Venus in Libra tend to be very popular with the opposite sex. They are considered to be more affectionate and romantic within their relationships.  They are drawn to marriage and partnerships which value them as an equal decision-maker. They don't like to be ruled over by others. They also don't like environments where there is a lot of strife or discord. Because they are drawn to romance and marriage, they are more likely to enter into these partnerships earlier in life than their peers. They are likely to feel more complete when walking through life within a relationship. They are also likely to be a natural mediator, trying to balance the outcomes of quarrels between others. Unfortunately, their desire for harmony does not always play out well within their own relationships.
