Also, all of my Venus exploration as of late is occurring within the current Venus synodic cycle, which has an overtone of Venus in Leo, so that’s a bit more like being the center of attention, and may have a royal quality to it. All of which is to say that my feeling of Venus in Libra being Queenly is supported two-fold! How nice.
Have you felt any of what I’m talking about? It hasn’t been very blatant- it’s been quite subtle, but I’ve noticed it for sure because I am watching for clues of Venusian qualities and changes. Whereas my nurturing efforts last month were toward cleansing (Virgo), and the month before that to play and creation (Leo), now they feel much more devoted and have a distinct [albeit quiet] feeling of sort of ‘holding it all together’ - for EVERYONE to whom I am responsible! I can imagine that folks with Venus in Libra (or other Libra types) must easily exhaust themselves with all of this unseen WORK! It may not even be outwardly noticeable, or even have much of an actual effect, but the sense of duty and devotion are unmistakable and I can see how they might get one all tied up in knots if never given space to release! Are any of you Libra Women (especially) or Men (also, of course!) like that? Holding the world together all on your own?
I wonder how we can give you a break! I say use your intuition, make art, make love, beautify, mediate, be social (work that relationship path!), listen to your own good judgement. Let some space come into your steadiness. Listen for the call from Spirit (if you can hear it) and let that guide you- rather than getting stuck in your beliefs of having to hold it all together. Use your amazing discernment with yourself to find out what you can let go of so that you can take care of YOU (you simply can’t take care of everyone else if you are a wreck! It’s just not logical!!)!
I’m not sure exactly who I’m speaking to (or, rather, to whom I am speaking...), but I sure hope that you are listening! So much love and leisure to my Libra ladies and gents! I wonder if you can ‘hold it all together’ with HALF the effort you are putting into it right now. (I also wonder IF, in fact, you actually ARE holding it all together!? Maybe you are putting all of this pressure on yourself for naught! Regardless, the following exercise is worth a go, either way!) This is a little trick I learned from a great yoga teacher- try it! Anytime you feel yourself straining to do something: see if you can’t do the same thing with only HALF of the straining! I’m willing to bet that you CAN! Then… See if you can do it with only HALF of the effort it took THAT time! See how much you can do with how little striving, and feel the breath-of-fresh-air space that opens up within you. You will be able to see straight again! You may get a whole lot more *actually* done! And, with far less suffering. Try it! Tell me all about it!! And tell me how Libra in Venus (strike that- reverse it) is panning out for you!
Love and light!
