The Full Moon in Libra arrives on Tuesday, a day after Mercury goes retrograde in Taurus. Both signs are ruled by Venus. Venus is the planet of Love, beauty, values and meaning, how we approach our relationships. Venus can very much be the planet that reveals our “Love Language” in life. Where it is in our chart, can signify how and what we appreciate, how and what we enjoy giving and what we seek in our relationships. In an earth sign, it would suggest a more practical type of “love language” where someone appreciates “gifts or touch”.
Venus in an air sign would signify a love language where words have the most meaning to someone in how they express their love and interpret being loved. These are powerful tools to use in understanding someone’s values and how to communicate we love them. Someone with Venus in a Water sign may use the love language of “quality time” where Venus in Fire signs may appreciate acts of service as fire is the action taker of the elements.
See, Tuesday’s full moon is all about love, appreciation and gratitude. We cannot have these 3 keys without balance, which is what Libra represents, in the sign itself, being the scales. To truly love someone or something, be it an event or aspect of our life, we must learn to appreciate both of it’s dark and light, benefits and challenges. Only then can we truly disarm any illusion that gets in the way of true authentic love and gratitude.
When we see only one side of a person, we create illusions that stop us from being able to authentically appreciate them. When we understand the lessing of a trait of someone that we find challenging, we can breakthrough our barriers to love. When we can find the challenge of a perceived blessing, we can once more find balance and transform our unrealistic expectations that are bound for grounding. It is all about balance. To truly love something, we must understand it fully for all of it’s gifts and lessons.
