Love planet Venus, which rules relationships, beauty and pleasure, moves into its home sign of loving Libra on Sept. 29, 2014, setting us up for a sweet time that highlights partnerships and social settings.
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!

Libra, the Scales, is the sign of the Autumnal Equinox. It marks the beginning of fall in the Northern Hemisphere, arriving at the moment when the nights become longer than the days. This is not a time of turning away from the world. It is, rather, a period when relationships take on greater importance. Perhaps it is the lengthening night that reminds us of our dependency on one another and puts the focus on partnerships.
Ideally, Libra represents the dynamic balance of a healthy couple. This sign includes the principles of fairness, diplomacy and the recognition of others as equals. Librans, therefore, are very socially sensitive. They notice who is getting his or her share and who isn’t. They understand the role of give and take in the creation of harmonious communities.The desire for peace, though, can be so strong that honest communication becomes stifled. It is vital that we remember that moments of challenge and conflict are sometimes necessary for relationships to grow.
Venus-ruled Libra is traditionally associated with a sense of beauty and good taste. This is a period in which we benefit by paying more attention to how we are affected by our environment. It’s a good time for making your home or workplace more attractive. Outer harmony supports inner peace.
Libra has a sense of justice that can lead to non-violent political activism as expressed by Mohandas Gandhi, Lech Walesa, Jimmy Carter, Eleanor Roosevelt or Jesse Jackson. There are, too, more acerbic Librans, ranging from Oscar Wilde, John Lennon and Lenny Bruce to Janeane Garofalo, Eminem and Snoop Dogg.
Famous Libra singer-songwriters are Sting, Jackson Browne, Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, Paul Simon and Will Smith. Many Libra actresses are doing well these days, including Gwyneth Paltrow, Jenna Elfman, Mira Sorvino, Neve Campbell, Alicia Silverstone, Joan Cusack and Kate Winslet. Matt Damon is another Libra who is prospering in the movie business. There are even two double Libra movie couples: Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas and Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins.
The world of sports has Librans Serena Williams, Martina Hingis, Mark McGwire and Evander Holyfield. Barbara Walters, Anne Rice, Sarah Ferguson and Luciano Pavarotti are other celebrities born under this sign.
Sun in Libra
Your cosmic guide to life with the Sun in Libra
Fall arrives in the northern hemisphere as the Sun moves into loving Libra on September 22, 2014, and it’s not just the days and nights that are equal — all of us become equals with the Sun in this balanced sign.
Libra is ruled by Venus, planet of love and beauty, so our attention turns to partnerships, relationships, arts and culture during this time. Gone is the critical vibe of the Virgo Sun we’ve been living under for the past month, so we can now enjoy a more relaxed and social season.
Those born from about Sept. 19-25 were born on the Virgo-Libra cusp, and those born from about Oct. 20-26 were born on the Libra-Scorpio cusp. Being born on the cusp simply means that you were born during the transition time between two zodiac signs, so you retain some qualities from each sign.
Here’s how to make the most of that Libra lifestyle:
What to do: Who knows? We never met a Libra who could make up their mind about anything. There are just too many options to choose from! Everyone’s probably going to have more trouble making decisions while the Sun’s in Libra.
What to say: “You have a point, but… ” Balanced Libra sees both sides of every story, so we’re bound to be agreeable and disagreeable at the same time. Count on Libra to see your point and then come right back at you with another view, and most of us will take on this ability while the Sun’s in Libra.
Where to go: Shopping with friends! Beauty-loving Libra appreciates the finer things in life, so they’re always happiest while out on expeditions for pretty new fashions, home décor or nibbles from the gourmet food store. And you can bet friendly Libra will always have a friend or two in tow.
What to wear: Something relaxed and versatile that will work for any occasion. Libra needs chic, easy outfits that can hop from desk to dinner — or maybe to the beach or the gallery, or maybe even just for staying in on the couch. With the Sun in Libra you never know what’s next, so you’d best dress as middle-of-the-road as the sign itself.
What to buy: Clothing, shoes, makeup, hair products, furniture, art, antiques, musical instruments, fine wine — heck, with the Sun in Libra we should be telling you what NOT to buy. Ok: Don’t buy those five-toed sandal shoes. Admit it, they’re ugly, and Libra can’t for that, no can do.
What to watch out for: Libra energy can occasionally be too nice. They don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings and they want everyone to be happy, so sometimes they refrain from telling a harsh truth that might rock the boat. We love that Libra diplomacy, but while the Sun’s in Libra we all need to remember to put our own needs first sometimes, too!
What to look forward to: Reconnecting with lots of friends in playful social settings. Gone is the Virgo Sun that’s been working us hard for the past month, so now it’s time to relax and enjoy the new season. Get out there to watch the leaves turn colors with all 200 of your best friends!
