Venus evaluates relationships, cars, your career path, even something trivial like buying a candy bar at the check stand. Venus’ job is to get you the best deal possible in all circumstances.
Venus in Libra asks, “Is this a good deal?”
I have a brother-in-law with Venus and the Sun in the sign of Libra and he is the go-to guy in the family when it comes to buying anything because he always knows where to get the best deals!
Are Your Relationships Worth the Effort and Time?
You may be thinking about your relationships and whether or not they are worth your time, effort, and energy. The Vedic Compatibility technique is excellent at helping you to decide if a relationship worth the effort and cost (sometimes a relationship is less than 51% worth it, but if it is 51% worth it, keep it).
It’s the Rolls Royce of astrological compatibility techniques as it not only explains what each person is like emotionally, but explains the weird stuff that happens between you that is outside the control of either one of you.
Blame and it’s toxic effects disappears from your relationship when you see the forces put in motion simply by being together (there is plenty that is within your power to control too, relationship skills can be learned).
Knowledge is a type of vehicle, and astrology can explain aspects of your relationship that nothing else on earth can, including therapy! READ more about it here (the page will open into a separate window).
Do You Need a New Vehicle?
In English, that means it’s a great time to buy a classic luxury car. The car itself doesn’t have to be old, but the brand name of the car can be. I hear you can lease Mercedes for affordable monthly prices!
It’s a good time to buy a regular car too, in case you’re wondering.
Renew Your Bodily Vehicle For Your Health
The body is a vehicle too and the beginning of the autumn season is good time to pamper your body and give it a safe and gentle cleanse to get ready for the winter.
Venus is the water element and the rejuvenator of the body. Read a good article on cleansing for your body, your mind, and your spirit using Ayurveda principles (the traditional medicine of India based on the elements).
Taking good care of your bodily vehicle is especially important now because Rahu, the north node of the Moon, is in the same sign as Venus and the Sun (the Sun rules the vitality of the body). Rahu adds more of the chaotic Vata energy (the air element), which is often the root cause of disease.
Your Career or Inspirations
While Venus is strong in it’s own sign of Libra, the Sun is considered to be very weak in Libra (it’s opposite Aries, the sign of the Sun’s exaltation).
When the Sun is in the sign of Libra, we are more concerned with our relationships than with following our inspirations or ambitions for our career.
The self-confidence necessary to go after what you want is not as strong and you may doubt yourself considerably. It doesn’t mean you shouldn’t act, but it could be a time to consider how you can get others involved in your projects/ideas. Getting their “buy-in” could help you to reach your goals more easily.
Venus in Libra with the Sun will bring out your most diplomatic and cooperative side. When you think about it, our careers or avocations are made up of people and relationships, so taking time once a year to tend to those relationships can only be a good thing.
Libra is a great sign for business and people who have Libra prominent such as the ascendant in Libra, Venus in Libra in the 1st, 4th, 7th, or 10th houses, or the “essence” planet aka the Atmakaraka (the planet in the birth chart at the highest degree, not counting the nodes or Uranus, Neptune, or Pluto) are good in business because they are able to make good choices and decisions.
The FULL Moon – Revati Nakshatra & A Total Lunar Eclipse
The Full Moon this month is on October 8th and it coincides with a Full Lunar Eclipse in the sign of Aries and the Nakshatra of Revati.
The Moon will be with Ketu, the south node of the Moon and opposed by the Sun, Rahu, and Venus. This is a strongly spiritualizing configuration and a good time to make progress in your spiritual practices and growth.
This a force that takes us within so you will feel more like writing in your journal and taking long walks than attending social events.
Your intuition will be stronger than usual and your ability to see the “order behind the order” will give you profound insights into issues that have been bothering you.
Revati is the last nakshatra and relates to endings, completion and the passage of time. This is a good time to begin a spiritual search, go a long journey, or a spiritual pilgrimage.
It’s time to let go of anything that is not working for you and that you don’t want to exert the effort into maintaining anymore. “Having it all” is mighty exhausting.
The NEW Moon in Libra – Chitra Nakshatra
The New Moon occurs on October 23rd and it’s with the Sun, Venus, Mercury, and Rahu all in the sign of Libra! The house Libra rules in your birth chart is going to be a very busy house (get your FREE birth chart HERE and read the House descriptions on the same page).
The house ruled by Libra in your chart will be requiring you to make choices and to evaluate the worth of something. If you are torn between two courses of action or between two lovers, Horary astrology can help you make the best decision.
The Chitra nakshatra (aka Lunar Mansion) contains the fixed star Spica, the “star of opportunity.” There will be an opportunity in the affairs of this house, and it will very likely involve your relationships because Libra also rules love and relationships. Spica is a powerfully protective star so if you want to take a risk, you will be protected from a bad outcome.
This is a is a great time to buy flowers, colorful clothing, jewelry and other objects of natural beauty (if not for a lover, then at least for yourself). Art could be a profitable investment too.
Chitra’s motivation is desire and brings with it a strong sexual passion. May the power of Venus in Libra help you to make wise and worthwhile choices during this time!
October ends with Halloween on the 31st. By that time, the Sun, Mercury, and Venus have moved into the sign of Scorpio, the natural ruler of the hidden 8th house of death and the occult.
Perfect for Halloween. Have a good one!
