Venus, Ruler of Libra

Venere264.jpgTo be born under a sign of Venus is a good start, as there are planets which are much less accommodating, more serious or severe. Venus - Aphrodite, goddess of love and the protagonist of many passionate and transgressive affairs, with the majority of the gods on Olympus, well describes the need for love of this sign, and given that there are two parts to these scales, also the need of a balanced relationship, the inner aspiration of finding a partner with whom to go along the path of life with.
Venus was born from a violent act, when Saturn castrated his father Uranus, god of the sky, and threw his male member into the Mediterranean Sea. From its violent impact with the water, not far from the island of Cyprus, the goddess of beauty burst forth from the foamy water. A splendid, uninhibited creature, capable of seducing all men and gods indifferently.

Libra: the Sign of Justice

This is the time of the autumnal Equinox, which astrologically marks the beginning of the sign of Libra. Astrology observes the affinity between the seasonal evolution and the nature of the person born into that time of year. In ancient times the Zodiac was first formed by 10 signs, passing to 11 before finally ending up with 12. The last sign to be included in the Zodiac was Libra, formed by detaching the pincers from the sign of Scorpio.
