This is one of the most poignant transits of the year because it illuminates how much our interpersonal relationships constitute our wellbeing. Do our words and actions promote peace? What is our communication style? Do our relationships feel harmonious and mutually respectful? These are questions to ask ourselves now.
What’s special about Venus in Libra is how she nourishes our human need for community, communication, partnership, love, family, and friendship. She listens intently and offers great advice. However, Venus/Libra must work on being more assertive and direct. She must also learn that it’s ok to be alone and that we need to be able to validate ourselves without relying on others to do this for us.
There are two main types of Libras, as far as I can tell. One is decidedly left-brained, with no patience for astrology, spirituality, or emotional decision-making. These Libras are drawn to symmetry, math, science, and psychology. The other type of Libra is romantic and stylish, often timid, and usually very indulgent. This is the true Venusian expression of Libra. Divine feminine Libra oozes sexuality and opulence. She has excellent taste and places high value on quality and aesthetic.
No matter how she manifests in human form, the archetype of Libra digs directly into the relationship and communication weaknesses we hoped she’d miss. Efforts to evade or deceive her prove futile. Confrontation can be so awkward or stressful but internalizing is ultimately more uncomfortable. Venus in Libra is like a bitter pill that burns the lining of your soul, but she’s the best tonic on the cosmic market when it comes to standing up for ourselves and stating our needs.
Remain clear and open in communication, both with yourself and others. Stand close to those who make you feel calm and appreciated. If you don’t honor your needs and ditch the toxicity, Libra will do it for you, and she can be quite forceful. If the situation calls for it, walk away with your head held high; the goddess is right behind you.
Let’s all take really really good care of ourselves and one another.
Coinciding with the first day of Venus in Libra is the First Quarter Moon in Scorpio.
