"For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair, let a child run their fingers through it once a day.
For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.
People, more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed. Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of each of your arms. As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself and the other for helping others."


-- Sam Levenson

When the planet of love and relationships enters her favored home sign of Libra on August 17, life gets way more beautiful for the next few weeks. Venus is happiest while touring the signs of Taurus, Libra and Pisces. We're more likely to compromise and accommodate in order to keep the balance in our relationships. We want to feel the sweet and effortless flow between ourselves and our partners now.

Life feels better when shared as a duo under the Libran influence. Teaming up is a natural instinct now, so if you've been looking for a good partner -- business or romantic -- this is the proverbial grace period for love. You'll also notice that people tend to have better manners, temperaments and taste during this phase. Sweetness and light and all-things fair dominate under the strong Venusian influence. If it's not beautiful or if it doesn't create more beauty in the world, don't do it.

We're also more concerned with equality and fairness under this transit. Anything that it is out of balance or unjust will disrupt the Scales more than usual. It's important to take time to consider where you need more give-and-take to reclaim any loss of equilibrium in your partnerships.

The downside to strong Venus energy is the need to compromise at the expense of your own truth. Being overly accommodating in order to preserve a connection could set off another level of imbalance and might create later resentment. It's a fine line between being understanding, gentle and easy-going and being a pushover -- as many Libras will tell you.
