Venus in Libra, August 16th to September 10th 2021. Love is all around.
Venus the goddess of love in her own sign of Libra, has more love to give than perhaps in any other sign. During the next three weeks, there will be an abundance of love and romance in the air. It can feel like everyone will seem so much kinder, nicer and have more love to give.
Venus in her own sign of Libra is one of the best placements possible for more romance and is a celebration of love, representing an upgrade for all of our relationships and taking them to the next level. An opportunity to make more room in our lives and our hearts for more love, abundance, harmony and joy.
It will be easier to fall in love if you are single and also fall back in love with life, ourselves and with the simple things all around us that give us joy. From the unexpected act of kindness from a stranger to suddenly seeing everything through a more positive light. We often see so much despair in the daily news that we often forget just how much love, compassion and miracles are really to be found all around.
“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle”– Albert Einstein –
Libra represented by the scales, is all about getting the right balance. We can find a better balance in our lives to achieve more peace, beauty, harmony, and love as Venus in Libra offers us the gift of diplomacy and the art of compromise to correct any imbalance with others too.
Venus, the goddess of love, is somewhat hedonistic and quality of life is more important to us now.
Do we have enough time and space in our lives for fun and relaxation? Is it all about work and no play? Are you giving and not receiving enough love and appreciation?
Love, beauty and all things bright and beautiful are in focus; we can bring fresh, exciting wind into everything Venus-ruled, our relationships, creativity, art and finances. We can suddenly feel the urge to beautify our surroundings and the way we look. Libra instills in us a desire to honour our inner and outer beauty. Break out and try new things that will enhance your joy and pleasure factor.
Venus in Libra can help us to shift our perspective from feelings of lack to feelings of gratification and abundance, as we cultivate generosity in all its forms, we shift our focus away from lack, to abundance. Generosity gets us to focus on the fact that there’s actually plenty to go around. We start to see how much love and wealth is all around you right now. And that’s when we raise our vibration and start attracting more love and abundance on an energetic level. We attract not what we want but what we are.
“Doing what you love is the cornerstone of having abundance in your life”. Wayne Dyer
Whatever your present circumstances may be, we can all download more love, light and hope into our lives.
We feel happy now when we can express our love and appreciation for our loved ones, family and friends, with authentic feelings and passion.
Celebrate your love, of yourself and others. Treat yourself and your loved ones to something special, a special treat, or through the language of love. Speak to others with more caring, passion, and love, creating an environment of love, peace and harmony. We can tap into this exuberant energy to feel good and uplift ourselves and others.
The gift of Venus in Libra is also one of self-love, helping us to release all that is NOT love. Remember your, energy, time, self-respect and boundaries are holy and sacred.
The most important relationship in your life is the relationship you have with yourself. It’s time to fall in love with YOU.
Venus in Libra offers us a chance to evolve in Love. We are being asked to mature and redefine what love of self and others really means and to take responsibility for our actions.
Don’t fall in love, RISE in love.” “Immature people falling in love destroy each other’s freedom, create a bondage, make a prison. Mature persons in love help each other to be free; they help each other to destroy all sorts of bondages. And when love flows with freedom there is beauty…A mature person does not fall in love, he or she rises in love…Two mature persons in love help each other to become more free. There is no politics involved, no diplomacy, no effort to dominate. Only freedom and love.” ~Osho
