On Monday September 29th, Venus will leave Virgo and return to one of its home constellations: Libra. Venus handles the romantic values and overall romantic demeanor of an individual. The Venus sign reveals how a person is most likely to behave in a partnership and what things are important to them. In Libra, Venus is compassionate, charming, sophisticated, cultured and intelligent. The graceful mannerisms of the planet blend effortlessly with the naturally cooperative qualities of the sign. Venus in Libra values open communication (Air sign) and has no problem taking the reins of the relationship to ensure balance and fairness (Cardinal sign).

Venus in Libra is “other” driven: often putting the needs of a partner before their own—even if it conflicts with their own personal values. In some essence, satisfying their partner can actually be satisfying to the Venus in Libra native. Over the next few weeks, we all seek ways to be more accommodating and compromising to a current lover (or potential lover). Of all Venus signs, Libra is most inclined to believe in self-sacrificial love: or the idea that giving up large parts of themselves for the sake of a relationship is honorable and preferable. As a result, Venus’s current position guides us back to our “soft centers”: what can we do to make our mates happy? Cooperation is key here. Venus in Libra (not unlike a Sun in Libra individual) finds comfort in sentiment and idealism. Libra wants a sophisticated and communicative lover to share ideas with (thanks to the Air quality). Unfortunately, Venus in Libra possesses an unlimited supply of rose colored glasses: seemingly more in love with the idea of a person/relationship instead of the actual person/relationship.

While Venus rests at home in Libra, we are all inclined to be sensitive, giving, and open in romantic endeavors. There’s a penchant for luxury, art and creativity. Our Venus in Libra progression drives us to seek balance and order within our relationships. This transition is best for those with a natal Sun sign and/or Venus sign in Libra. The world appears to be speaking your “love language”: partners are receptive to your needs and romantic desires.

Venus will be in Libra until October 23rd. Questions about this article or the role Venus plays in your life? Find me here: astrology.maven9@gmail.com
