Usually Venus entering Libra is a happy occasion since Libra is her home sign. This time poor Venus runs the gauntlet of some rough aspects to first Neptune, then Saturn then followed by hits from Uranus and Pluto. It will be another week before she gets a big lift from jolly Jupiter in Gemini.
Generally when Neptune aspects Venus, our love lives get interesting . . . sometimes in a good way and sometimes not. We can fall in love with totally inappropriate people because we see all this amazing potential within them, only to wake up to the realization they are not capable of manifesting that potential.
The opposition of Venus in Libra to Uranus in Aries and then the square to Pluto in Capricorn have to the potential to open sore spots in our relationships. In this case we can use the pain to either decide for once and for all to get out or make one last genuine attempt to heal the damage. Whatever the cause is, it likely runs very deep and has to do with one partner or the other feeling hemmed in and controlled . . . perfect breeding ground for resentment, a relationship killer.
Most of us with either our Sun or Moon (or both) in Libra are beyond ready to leave the stress produced by Saturn transiting those bodies far, far behind. We need a certain degree of peace and harmony in our lives to thrive and tripping over these harsh aspects to Venus this week is salt in the wounds. Here’s to hanging on for now and looking forward to the promise of Jupiter in Gemini’s trine to Venus next week to lift our spirits.
I’m going to do my Sun-Jupiter conjunction “glass half full” thing and remain optimistic matters will improve!
