Venus enters Libra today, August 15, 2021. When Venus enters Libra, we bring our hearts into the realm of others. The first six signs of the zodiac, Aries through Virgo, we are getting to know ourselves deeply. When we enter the last six signs of the zodiac, Libra through Pisces, we are getting to know ourselves through our relationships with others and the world. We see who we have become mirrored back to us from our interactions with others and the world outside of us. Venus is how you receive, value you place on yourself & others, what you desire to make you feel good, what you love, opens you to love and be loved. Entering into that sacred realm of other, we open our hearts to love and be loved. It is a vulnerable place to be, to open yourself up to another. To bare yourself to another being or even to life, daring to expose yourself to possible pain and hurt. But to not expose yourself to that deep place of connection and intimacy, you will never feel the full aliveness of being. Let Venus in Libra help you find balance, peace, beauty, and serenity in connection, in sacred relationship and partnership.
