Libra will furthermore empower the already benefic effects of Venus, affecting positively every life matter that the planet represents in the natal chart. Venus is generally governing pleasure and what attracts us, attachment to material things and subconscious urges to claim and make something our possession. It rules what we appreciate and brings us comfort, and of course feelings that can be described under the category “love”. Libran energy will bring plentifulness and prosperity, and refine the best traits of the planet. This placement is all about love, in its purest form.
Libra is the seventh sign of the zodiac, and has planet Venus as its ruling celestial body. Libra is also the natural ruler of the seventh house, which rules marriage, partnerships, diplomacy and reconciliation. This includes unifications for business as a purpose, and is generally connected with the archetypes of “balancing” and “harmonization”. A Venus in Libra needs unions in order to feel complete, and has this as an ultimate goal. And indeed, this placement gives great joy through partnerships, which are usually successful and involving the right people. The artistic environment of Libra is very helpful for achieving a marriage that remains a love story for long, including a lot of romanticism and real affection. This placement feels as if having a magic talisman, which makes the individual choose people that also invest time and love to the partnership that is formed between them.

Venus in Libra people tend towards a life that has no nervousness, and try to make every day pleasant and beautiful. They are in love with balance, and will avoid extremes and turmoil.
In the sign of Libra, Venus is in domicile and thus in its highest potency. The other sign where the planet is also in domicile is Taurus, Venus ruling them both. This is a very good placement to have in a natal chart, as the gentle, moist and feminine traits of Venus blend wonderfully with the soft energy of Libra. This attribute may give constant satisfaction concerning one’s love-life. It will attract polite people with good manners, who know how to behave well and respect the native. Thus, any possible partnerships have more possibilities to bring a beautiful outcome, due to the good behaviors that other people will bear. Additional information about Venus’ potency in each sign can be read in the article about Venus’ Essential Dignities.
We should note that Venus needs around a month to move to a next sign, and is the second quickest moving planet, as it is located very near the Sun. Also, it cannot be more than two signs away from the sign where the natal Sun resides in. Once per year and a half, Venus has a period of retrograde motion, where it moves backwards for apparently 40 days in the natal chart. Venus is impersonated by the ancient Greek god Aphrodite, who was the goddess of love, pleasure and beauty. Also, she is strongly connected to procreation, and naturally represents the divine feminine as an archetype (together with the Moon of course, as it is the one side of the Sun-Moon dual axis).
Venus in Libra is ideal for people that are involved in occupations connected to any type of diplomacy. They have special powers of softening differences between opposite sides, and blunting any possible harsh reactions. A Libra Venus person is the peacemaker, who can reconcile even vicious enemies. They are the mediators, being able to make even people with distinct differences merge. Thus, this natal placement is wonderful for public relations. As Venus and Libra means beauty and balance, any job connected to those will also be perfect. These could be from the area of cosmetics, clothes and jewelry, or general well-being. Dancing, ballet, yoga or other spiritual paths that also involve body exercises for reaching balance are another area that this natal combination covers. It is also a good indicator of marriage, especially in a woman’s chart, it can mean taking care of her partner as the main purpose of her life. Indeed, in some occasions, it can indicate a person who does not work and just dedicates himself to his significant other. We shouldn’t forget that Libra is a sign that craves for unification, absolutely hating doing things on its own. Thus, in many situations, the individual will even open a business together with his beloved one.
People with such a placement are rather faithful, and will enter a marriage at the right time. Sometimes, more than one possible unifications can appear on the horizon, which can be equally good. This is the constant nightmare of Libra; having to choose one side of a dilemma. They can experience strong stress and upheavals, not being able to make up their mind and preferring life to bring them whatever it chooses itself. This placement is not famous for making the most decisive people. Yet, at least concerning love, Venus in Libra does not make mistakes. Every path seems to be a right one, making the native bloom as a flower and grow internally. Indeed, a Libra Venus has enormous capacities of feelings, and romance seems more important than food for them. Life is always generous towards them in those terms, offering them the necessary surroundings for their love hormones to flow freely.
When a Venus in Libra has feelings for someone, he has a tendency to give himself totally to that person. This does not bring any kind of trouble, as long as their partner returns their affection in a similar way. Yet, if this does not happen, a Libra Venus native may feel tortured by the misbalance of the situation. Such natives should be careful, so that other people do not take advantage of their feelings. Also, they should wait a little bit, not rushing in giving their whole self, and investing their whole life in another person if the affection is not reciprocated. Small steps are necessary, to build the balance needed for a healthy relationship.
Physical beauty does not play an important role concerning the choice of their significant other, they have a tendency to idealize their partners. They themselves are usually rather beautiful, having very sweet characteristics and look for the same in others. They will always prefer refined and gentle human beings than aggressive and loud ones. Libra Venus people get turned off by swearing and generally the usage of bad language. They hate redneck behavior, and will always prefer partners and people that have manners reminding knighthood.
When a native has his natal Venus in Libra, he will love wearing classy clothes and will definitely spend a lot of money on lingerie. Such a person will invest in good fabric, which feels comfortable on the skin but also looks aristocratic. For them, clothes and style are their personal art, and will definitely choose to buy those that make them seem more graceful. Concerning clothes, a Libra Venus does not wear anything that looks extreme. They will even prefer to appear sweet and charming, rather than hot and sexy. Yet, their stylistic choices definitely do not pass unnoticed, offering even more pleasant notes to their overall beautiful appearance.
As Venus is connected with wealth and money, Venus in Libra will make the native an indecisive buyer. Such people will examine the quality of various objects until they decide what to buy, yet will frequently get nervous because of difficulties to choose. In the end, they may rush out of the store without buying anything, or purchase totally different things than what they wanted or needed. They have an inner need to feel that their money were invested in good-quality objects, which will grant them a long-term pleasure of usage. They will like to share their things with their significant others, and will adore to give and receive gifts, especially romantic ones. Concerning bills and other shared expenses with their beloved ones, they will always strive to cut everything equally so that everyone pays his own half, and will feel rather awkward when another person is paying for them.
When a Libra Venus is well aspected in a natal chart, the native can be very lucky in the life area that the sign of Venus rules. We should not forget that Venus is considered to be the most benefic planet after Jupiter, and being in domicile is a great blessing. It will bring unexpected pleasant events concerning the house where it resides, and generally help things flow easily. On the contrary, bad aspects to Venus can bring quite a lot of problems mostly connected with overindulging in pleasures. As we have already mentioned, when the darker traits of Venus are awakened by difficult natal aspects, the Libra Venus person may develop strong obsessions – especially about love – which will naturally hurt back through losses in order to balance out the natal chart. Overabundance for long is not tolerated by the karmic laws, so it is always wiser to exercise modesty.
