Venus Enters Libra

Jean-Honoré Fragonard “The Swing”

August 16 - September 10, 2021

She is the goddess of good taste, the mistress of manners, the empress of elegance. Venus in Libra has arrived. Aphrodite is in her element. Awaking this morning into the masculine, cardinal, diurnal air sign of Libra—her other home—she feels calm and comfort wash over her. Here, there are friends to be called on and mates to be made, lovers to bed and to wed. Venus in Libra cannot live without love, and she finds it in the mirror of every friendly face she encounters. Relating runs in her blood. It’s a stimulating world of fashion, philosophy and art, and harmony is the key to her heart. 

Venus in Libra deals in justice, rightness and fairness, and likability is her currency—not an easy tightrope to walk. When unable to eradicate ugliness, she turns it into art. When pushed, she kills her haters with kindness, and she knows you catch more flies with honey than with vinegar. She makes lemonade out of life’s inevitable lemons. 

Where Libra falls in our charts is where we are always weighing out the scales of symmetry, civility and equality. The house(s) that the sign occupies can expect some designing and decorating, with Venus traveling through. For some, this transit may bring peacekeeping, for some, people pleasing, to that area of life. It’s a welcome dose of creativity and cooperation, and a beautiful balancing act.
