In the China Shop...

On August 6th, Venus enters her second home, Libra. Her stay in and around the sign will be extended, as she will backpedal into Libra from Scorpio during her upcoming retrograde. In fact, she won't leave Libra for good until early December, and her initial stay lasts more than a month, until September 9th. Towards the end of this period, on September 3rd, Venus enters the shadow of her retrograde in late Libra.

While in Libra, Venus shows her more harmonious, graceful side. This is where the goddess of love and relationship follows the rules of decorum and favors formalities and niceties. It's a diplomatic and considerate placement for Venus, yet this time around she's going to be tangling with some rather challenging astrological aspects.

As soon as she gets into the sign, in fact at the very minute she arrives, the Sun squares Jupiter, while Uranus stations to retrograde less than 24 hours later. If Venus is expecting balance in the sign of the scales, these two celestial events can be expected to upend any delicacy and harmony. While Libra is about considering the other, these aspects are all about self-assertion

Nor do things lighten up, as Venus opposes Chiron on the 8th and squares Saturn on the 9th. The first aspect is a direct challenge to relationships, as we begin to consider what we have given away by means of compromise. Venus square to Saturn also asks us what we are willing to give up for the sake of partnership, and what we are getting back in return.

The theme of me vs. us, what I need and what you (we) need, has been strong since early July, in many areas of life (what is demanded of you from work, family, society, etc, and how can you live your own best life in the face of these demands?). Venus in Libra brings the issue to relationship itself. It may seem that her pleas in favor of relationship are quiet in comparison to the shouts for independence and freedom that the Cosmos is reverberating so loudly.

If tensions have been running high, a crisis point might be reached around the 26th and 27th, as Venus squares Pluto while Mars stations to move direct. The struggle and tension of Venus/Pluto might be internalized, but Mars stationing impels us to action. If you've been straining to keep the lid on things, you may see them erupt around this time.

A Venusian square to Mars is the goddess' last aspect on her way out of the sign, on September 8th. While a tense aspect between two planets that are dealing with retrogrades, Venus and Mars are in signs that they function well in, so for those who are on solid ground in their partnerships, this might be a time of directed action and moving forward. Still, a note of caution is advised, with Saturn stationed on the 6th and Venus already in the shadow of her retrograde. AD
