Love planet Venus, which rules relationships, beauty and pleasure, moves into its home sign of loving Libra from August 16 to September 11, 2013, setting us up for a sweet time that highlights partnerships and social settings.
You can find out what's in store for your own love life during this time and beyond with a personal Big Picture Love Forecast!
Venus in Libra is naturally harmonious. This is a time when we're friendly, sociable, creative and our diplomatic skills peak. Libra is the most balanced sign, so this time always finds more of us striving to make sure things are fair and everyone is happy.
Libra is an Air sign, so it lends a breezy quality to love and partnerships of all kinds. We’ll be polite and charming with one another, and peace will prevail. If you tend to argue a lot in your relationships, you will see less of that now.
That said, while relationships are bound to proceed smoothly with Venus in Libra, they won't necessarily go very deep. This superficial quality comes into play because peacemaker Libra doesn't want to rock the boat and might tell a few little while lies just to avoid upsetting anyone with the truth.
Compromise is a good thing, but do take extra care during this time to make sure you don't sacrifice too much of your own needs for the sake of making someone else happy. Be fair to yourself, too!
In addition to creating more harmony in relationships, Venus in Libra is also very appreciative of the arts and beauty. So don't be surprised if you spend more time than usual shopping for pretty things now or fussing to make your hair look good.
But there's nothing wrong with that -- you need to look good. After all, Venus is in Libra so you probably have a dinner date!
