Venus enters Libra: The heart of the matter

Venus enters Libra on August 15, 2021

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. 

As I was writing this post, I kept hearing “Heart of the Matter” by Don Henley playing in my head. Here are the lyrics:

I got the call today

I didn’t want to hear 

But I knew that it would come

An old, true friend of ours was talkin’ on the phone

She said you found someone

And I thought of all the bad luck

And the struggles we went through

And how I lost me and you lost you

What are these voices outside love’s open door

Make us throw off our contentment

And beg for something more?

I’m learning to live without you now

But I miss you sometimes

The more I know, the less I understand,

All the things I thought I knew, I’m learning again

I’ve been tryin’ to get down

To the heart of the matter

But my will gets weak

And my thoughts seem to scatter

But I think it’s about forgiveness

Forgiveness

Even if, even if you don’t love me anymore

These times are so uncertain

There’s a yearning undefined

People filled with rage

We all need a little tenderness

How can love survive in such a graceless age?

Ah, the trust and self-assurance that lead to happiness

They’re the very things we kill, I guess

Oh, pride and competition

Cannot fill these empty arms

And the work I put between us, you know it doesn’t keep me warm

I’m learning to live with out you now

But I miss you, baby

And the more I know, the less I understand

All the things I thought I’d figured out

I have to learn again

I’ve been trying to get down

To the heart of the matter

But everything changes

And my friends seem to scatter

But I think it’s about forgiveness

Forgiveness

Even if, even if you don’t love me anymore

There are people in your life

Who’ve come and gone

They let you down

You know they’ve hurt your pride

You better put it all behind you baby

‘Cause life goes on

You keep carryin’ that anger

It’ll eat you up inside baby

I’ve been trying to get down

To the heart of the matter

But my will gets weak

And my thoughts seem to scatter

But I think it’s about forgiveness

Forgiveness

Even if, even if you don’t love me

I’ve been tryin’ to get down

To the heart of the matter

Because the flesh will get weak

And the ashes will scatter

So, I’m thinkin’ about forgiveness

Forgiveness

Even if, even if you don’t love me

Forgiveness, forgiveness, baby

Forgiveness, forgiveness

Forgiveness, forgiveness

Even if, even if you don’t love me

Forgiveness, forgiveness

Forgiveness, forgiveness

Forgiveness, forgiveness
