The Basics

Venus is all about your style of expressing love and your attitude towards money, things of value, and art.

Libra signifies balance, harmony, partnership, beauty, and justice.

You are charming, tactful, courteous, considerate, balanced, poised, harmonious, and have a strong desire to please instead of making waves. Because you try to be so agreeable, you have difficulty saying "no". Thus people may take advantage of you.

Although Venus is a so-called benefic planet, Venus in Libra can be fairly ruthless at times within relationships. With this position, one knows just what the other wants to hear and can thus be quite manipulative. You naturally attract people and things into your life when they are needed. Sometimes this happens so easily that you do not appreciate what you have.

Harmony is valued so much that you will compromise a great deal in order to keep it. You do not like to dwell on controversial or emotionally complex subjects and often try to "smooth things over" or "sweep them under the rug."

In marriage and partnerships, you want someone who is an equal, someone who balances you and your personality. You are attracted to people with certain finesse, delicacy, and subtlety. You appreciate good manners and refinement and are not happy with a coarse, crude or blunt (Sagittarius Sun) type of person.

You possess magnetism and sophistication, and you relate well to others. You probably have musical or artistic ability or, at the very least, a heightened appreciation of them. On the negative side, you may at times be lazy, wanting to take the easy way out or the line of least resistance. You can also be very indecisive. You need people and may find it challenging to feel comfortable in your own company.

Dating Venus in Libra:

While we all are more complex than a single Sign placement, there's plenty to glean from from the Venus position in what feeds your desires.

If you want to make a great impression on someone who appreciates beauty, refinement, and balance, consider taking them to a high-end restaurant, an art exhibition, or a seated music concert. Be sure to dress to the 9's and bring your A-game when it comes to conversation, as they value intellectual stimulation and enjoy engaging in thoughtful discussions or debates.

Pay attention to the details, whether it's the way you dress or the way you decorate your home. Show that you appreciate the beauty in life and that you're willing to put in the effort to create a visually pleasing and harmonious environment.

Be genuine and authentic. Be yourself, but also be willing to put in the effort to create a relationship that is balanced and harmonious. With a little bit of effort, you can definitely wow them on your date.

Venus in Libra & Money:

You enjoy the finer things in life and may even have a bit of a weakness for indulging in expensive purchases or experiences. However, you also value balance and harmony, so you are unlikely to overspend or accumulate debt in pursuit of material possessions. You may have a knack for creating financial partnerships or collaborations that benefit both parties, and you may even have a talent for negotiating favorable deals.

You value quality over quantity and tend to be selective in your purchases, preferring to invest in high-quality items (especially clothes) that will stand the test of time, both in style and durability.

Your preference for Art:

You have a refined aesthetic sense and are drawn to art that embodies elegance, grace, and harmony. You appreciate the subtle details, delicate touches, and overall balance in a work of art.

You may be particularly drawn to art that explores themes of love, relationships, or beauty, as these are areas that you value in your own life.

Pieces that capture the elegance and grace of the human form might particularly appeal to you. Themes of peace, justice, and partnerships may also resonate with you.
