Grace Kelly, Venus in Libra

“I think marriage licenses should be like driver’s licenses. They expire after a number of years, and in order to keep going you have to renew. What a way to keep it fresh!”

“You don’t need a pickup line. Just glance at a woman from across the room. Glance– don’t stare.” -Jenny McCarthy, Venus in Libra

“Beauty is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick ass red lipstick.”-Gwyneth Paltrow, Sun in Libra

“I’m basically a good, gentle person but I’m attracted to mean personalities.” -Rita Hayworth, Venus in Libra

If you were born when Venus was in the constellation of Libra, the Scales…

You were born under the Venus-ruled sign of Libra, allying you with gifts of negotiation and an innate understanding of how to keep peace under times of stress and differences. A consummate politician, pleasing others also pleases you – for you take pleasure in others’ happiness (while knowing that when they’re happy, they’re also more likely to give you what you want!). This doesn’t mean everything is smooth sailing: you’ll be given plenty of opportunities to work out the difference between what’s best for others versus what’s best for you. But the Venus archetype, present at peace treaties, contract negotiations and important negotiations is so central to keeping everyone happy in a relationship, & you excel here. Smoothing feathers & looking great while doing it, while making everyone around you feel great, is such a forte for you, you’re admired, sought out for your diplomacy & people-skills and often financially rewarded for them. As you see other people’s points of view, honorably and fairly seek middle ground, you dignify others with your respect and good graces– an invaluable gift. [Read more…]

Libra New Moon: Conjunctio

Marriage is the essence of human relationships. It challenges us to be of one accord without abandoning the truth of our individuality. It challenges us to not lose ourselves in one another, but rather to walk side by side heading in the same direction.

As with all relationships, marriage is an endless presentation of choices about how we want to be with one another. Each choice results in either more unity or more separation. Chose into that unity every chance you get.

Sacrifice your judgments, expectations, and any other ways that you have learned to separate yourselves from each other.

Share the gifts of your friendship, humor, vulnerability, sensitivity, and kindness. Be sure to find ways each day to protect, affirm, and support each other, and to treasure the balance and shared values that you have found with each other. [Read more…]
