“The Beauty Within”
External beauty may fade over a life time, yet when you let the beauty of your Essence/Soul shine forth it is radiant and will glow continuously. Venus, the planet that symbolizes beauty, love and relationships enters the sign of Libra on November 8th, 2015.
Libra is an air element and a cardinal mode of energy expression. Although Libras tend to be fair, kind and always considering others, do not mistake that for weakness. It is anything but! Being a cardinal sign Libra has the potential to be dynamic, initiating and in command at all times. The metaphor that relates is: “An iron fist in a black velvet glove.” The qualities of Venus in Libra, may be used to create harmony, expand love and peace in life and within relationships. To be fair and just in all undertakings.
Venus in Libra at its potential symbolizes a time where relating with others promotes loving kindness, cooperation, “WE Consciousness” and peaceful win/win solutions in relationships. Venus in Libra provides the quality of “How can we harmonize?”
As Venus transits through the sign of Libra, there will be opportunities to see how much power and energy is given to external beauty and how much emphasis is given to genuine kindness and beauty that exists at the core of every human being.
Through relating with other human beings even animals, you get to see whether or not your real Self/Soul is expressing or a fictitious politically correct image that the egoic mind has crafted is being expressed. In other words, through relating with others and life, you get to know yourself more intimately and expand awareness. Venus in Libra tends to symbolize relationships are the gateway into your own self and the opportunity to honor others as you honor yourself.
