Venus in Libra details

So, what exactly leads us to this feeling of warmth and positivity? Quite a lot, actually.

"It [Venus in Libra] will conjunct the Sun, which is in Libra during this time. It will oppose Jupiter in Aries and then trine in Mars and Gemini, so it's going to bring us a lot of very nice transits. It's going to be a season of love," Roby Antila says. 

Even though it seems like we have been a little hesitant about interactions as of late—not to place the blame on anyone, but MERCURY, you're not helping—Venus in Libra gives us the perfect opportunity to find harmony in partnerships (a main component of Libra season) and take advantage of the things that bring us happiness.

How do we make the most of this? It's all about embracing what the universe throws our way.

"Open yourself up to love and partnerships and relationship and just enjoy the loveliness of this transit," Roby Antila adds. "I think it’s a great time to schedule some things you love to do, whether it’s self-care or visiting a museum or going to a concert —anything artistic."

So, about that mani-pedi appointment...

Venus in Libra and relationships

So now may be a great time to meet someone or enrich the circles you're already in. But what is it about this particular transit that gives hopeful romantics a little jolt?

"Nothing is ever heavy with Libra, it just creates opportunities for a lot of different dialogue rather than monologue, and it gives us this soft yet strong way to approach relationships," Roby Antila says. "It can definitely enrich a relationship as far as bringing more romance and energy." 

But one (slight) pitfall is that Libras have a tendency to be a little indecisive, as they see both sides of the situation. It can make things a tad tricky, but Venus' influence certainly helps.

"It really lets us look at love in a clear, diplomatic way,"  Roby Antila says. "Sometimes when you’re able to see both sides of things, it can lead you in two directions, but it’s a great time to talk."'

We are definitely ready to close out September with a bang. Venus in Libra, we'll see you shortly!
