If the first half of this month has been marked by uncomfortable challenge and conflict, with the new Moon (in Libra) today we will soon be finding some relief. Venus, the ruler of this Moon is still in Virgo, so she still is being critical and picky, but from now on in she’ll be gaining – rather than losing - ground over argumentative Mars.
During the two weeks following a new Moon, everything grows more quickly, so I’m told – even your hair. This makes the period between today and Halloween (full Moon) a perfect time to undertake some (perhaps seriously needed) ‘relationship’ repair.
In this regard, keep in mind is that contrary to popular belief, Venus isn't so much about love of others as it is about love of ourselves. In other words, especially when it comes to romantic relationship, Venus seeks those who reflect back to her what she most VALUES in herself.
It only stands to reason that if you don’t yet have a good grasp on what you most value, you’ll attract the wrong people. The good news is that investigating the placement of Venus in your natal chart is the perfect place to start getting in touch with that which gives real meaning to your life. For example, if like me, your Venus is in Virgo, then you probably value that which is effective, efficient and well-organised. At heart, you’re a perfectionist and you want to be around people who reflect that back to you.
If, for whatever reason, you choose someone who is in too much of a hurry to worry about whether he/she gets things ‘right’, you’re not likely to be happy at least not in the long run.
