Radical Reposts: Relationships and Their Sky Reps

While the Sun is still in Libra, it seems like a good time to revisit in our repost series the topics of relationships, the sign Libra and the planet Venus. Share the best parts with your significant other!

The Planet Venus 

Many of these posts were already reprised in February  this year on Radical Reposts: The Planets – Venus. Take a ride on a love rocket to the Planet of Us! Guaranteed worth the ticket/click …


 “Mature” relationship, by the very use of the adjective mature involves making peace with Saturn. There is a good reason why Saturn is exalted—best placed—in the sign of Libra. We all want relationships that endure ...

While it’s also listed under The Planets – Venus, this article is worth the double billing. It’s Everything I’ve Learned about Relationship in Six Decades as a Venus Girl. While this article focuses on love on or after the Chiron Return, I think you'll find the insights are universal and timeless.

Speaking of relationships, don’t miss The Radical Virgo on Facebook! You’ll find much laughter and sharing with an astrological bent, plus links to every post on this blog. Like me! Really like me!

Your relationship with astrology is a long-term love affair. Like any long-term relationship, astrology needs to be nurtured and its place in your life is likely to change over time. 

This seminal article covers my theory of how Chiron rules the portion of the zodiac from Virgo through Sagittarius. It addresses how good relationships, one of the keys to wholeness, are formed through progressive developmental steps: Virgo to Libra to Scorpio to Sag.

The Sign Libra

Moonwalk: Libra (04-Oct-2010)

We often learn about the soul of a sign when we explore it as a Moon placement. While this article covers a specific time the Moon was in Libra, I think you’ll find many insights into Libra worth balancing on your own inner scales. For those who think Libras are only dimpled sweethearts, let me share from the opening paragraph:

The opening image in this post is the epitome of calm and balance. But when Libra Moon is upset, s/he seems more to me like an angry Aries with a Gemini split personality. (The duality of the two Scales surely contributes to the potential for two Libras—one Up, one Down.) While temporarily “loony,” the Libra Moon possessed by anger dips high and low in a way that can feel frightening. Think of a pair old-fashioned scales jerking up and down wildly, no balance in sight. You might even find it hard to believe that Venus rules this normally sweet Moon sign when its native is temporarily enraged.

Perhaps a good explanation why love can be both heaven and hell at times?

Happy Birthday, Libras!
