Welcome to Libra season! If you don’t know much about Libra or your Libra partner, then it’s time to learn. Libra is ruled by the air element & is cardinal in nature. That means they have the flexibility to change like the wind & the drive to create like expressive fire. As a Venus ruled sign, it’s all about relationships, you + me, love & of course making everything beautiful. Libra also rules over the 7th house – the House of Relationships & Marriage. Many Libras + many during Libra season will focus on their relationship dynamics with those close to them especially their partner. This is also a time for everyone to think about themselves in relation to their partners. Are you getting enough time for yourself? Spending too much energy on everyone else’s needs? If you answered yes, learn a little more about a balanced Libra relationship below!
Libra – gorgeous, harmonious, your ultimate peace maker in partnership! If there’s any sign that’s the epitome of relationships, love & all things teamwork – it’s Libra. These lovers are obsessed with harmony in their lives & that includes their bae. They really are excellent communicators to get all sides of the story out on the table & find ways to create a fair & just balance so everyone can be happy. If you landed a Libra, you’re in serious good fortune! You also may have a lot to learn in the balancing act of partnership. This is all especially true if your lover’s Venus is in Libra or their Sun, Moon or Rising.
Libra, like Taurus, is ruled by the planet Venus. Venus opens up the floodgates & wants to draw in all things of beauty & love into their lives. You may notice Libra has a very aesthetic home, super in-style clothing, & a bit more of a classy feel to them. This is the strong Venusian energy they exude as they appreciate beauty & art in every way. Don’t feel underdressed or judged, but your Libra lover may want to extend a hand to your wardrobe, home decor, or any area of your life that appears a bit messy. They do genuinely want to help!
A few things Libra needs to be aware of is this innate desire to keep things in balanced harmony. Sometimes they will bend the truth, withhold information or not share how they’re truly feeling in order to keep the peace & keep things running smoothly. Although they try to do this as selflessly as they can, if their partner catches wind, it can look quite selfish & deceitful. Do try to be patient with your Libra partner in this & encourage them that more connection & peace will be had if they tell the truth & express how they really feel.
Another thing that Libra is really good at, but it can also get them into trouble, is their ability to be highly objective. This is great for solving problems for others, staying unbiased, & finding justice for all. This can pose challenges for their partners when Libra doesn’t take the time to be subjective enough to understand themselves & what they truly feel, value, want, or need. Libra can become so involved in other’s perspectives & realities they can often lose sight of their own. It can make them appear inauthentic & hollow which is why some people think of Libra as a bit ‘shallow’. This couldn’t be further from the truth & it often just takes a Libra partner to step away from the relationship a little to catch their center & get real about who they are & what they need.
Libra rules marriage & long term partnership, they want that commitment more than most any of the 12 energies in the zodiac. If you can help them find true balance, you will be in for a beautiful life-long union!

Aquarius – electric, eclectic, your most eccentric partner yet! Welcome to the age of Aquarius where you either progress or digress if you can’t keep up. Electric with vitality & energy, an Aquarius lover is sure to keep you on your toes, entertained & doing all sorts of quirky new activities. Never a dull moment! This is especially true if their Venus is in Aquarius along with their Sun, Moon or Rising.
With a truly different approach to almost everything, they may also approach relationships the same way. They’re the first to want things to be boundless without definitions, so they might even prefer the relationship to be called anything but a ‘relationship’. To them, it puts it in a box with limits & as individuals who always want things to progress, limits is the last thing they want in love. If you’re trying to navigate your way through this type of an Aquarian connection, be patient but also express if you need more solid terms for your “relationship”. These are what we call the Uranian Aquarius types – but there is another…
The Saturnian Aquarius type is quite the opposite. This is someone who clings to the old ways, traditions, old culture & may desire a very traditional relationship in every sense of the word. They don’t desire so much to progress, but to preserve the old ways & keep them alive. This Aquarian lover will want the values in their relationship to be formulated around whatever culture & traditions they most resonate with & cling to. If you are with this type of Aquarius, learn these values & culture to better understand where your partner is coming from. If you don’t think Aquarius isn’t the most eclectic zodiac sign yet, then wait – there’s another type!
The Uranian-Saturnian Aquarius is the 3rd type. This is someone who is mixed in with both the new world & the old world & may at times struggle to be in this world. Keep that in mind when you’re with this day dreamer-go with the flow-social butterfly-entrepreneurial type! Oh yes, Aquarius is very creative & inventive – you may have lots of new experiments & projects scattered all over your house. You may find this Uranian-Saturnian type to be a little scattered as well, but do your best to either be their grounding force or flitter around with them. They are a ton of fun!
All 3 types bring their own excitement & romance to a relationship in a unique way & really want nothing more than to live the weirdest, most classically eccentric-kinda life with you!
16° Sagittarius Full Moon @ 12:11pm on 6/5/20
This Sagittarius moon illuminates many aspects of ourselves & our relationship. Perspectives, intellect, overthinking & ideas are ping-ponging around about how we can live our highest potential, best life, what we truly value as we move forward with what we feel is our purpose in this life AND in our relationships. We will be challenged by the Sun-Venus conjunction opposite the moon as we work to find balance between our thoughts/thinking mind & intuition/heart intelligence in order to feel integrated.
You may feel a bit pulled all over the place during this time, but tap into the full moon Sagittarius energy which brings us into alignment with ourselves & eachother on deeper levels than what we can see. Turning our energy inwards will help us to activate, navigate & draw energy upward in order to act effectively & efficiently as a team, rather than both of you spiraling out of control aimlessly.
This is a great time to set intentions inward, arch & aim your arrow to your highest ideals & communicate them with your partner for collaboration. You both may have differing ideas, views & dreams but that is okay! Allow there to be differences & know you can still grow together during this time. It will be a deep healing energy that allows each of you to connect on subtle levels you may not even know existed. Operate as interdependents rather than codependents. Let yourselves receive this unique energy & put your arrows together towards a bigger & brighter future!
