The good news is that Venus
(Shukra) the planet of love, beauty, art and procreation has finally
left its sign of debilitation (Virgo/Kanya) and has moved into its own
sign of Libra (Thula) for the next three weeks. 

This article shares some important upcoming influences to Venus in the next three weeks.

While Venus is transiting Libra
there will be some icnteresting planetary interactions along with the
entanglement of Venus in the Solar eclipse on October 23rd. There will
also be a meeting between Venus, the Sun and the servant, Saturn. 

Shortly after the Solar
eclipse,Venus will meet the Sun on October 25. Whenever a planet

very interesting configuration. 

This places the planet of love
and relationships in the middle of these two planetary enemies. It may
have us considering where the balance is in our personal relationships.
Or we may seek a new-found humility as we interact with those we love.

Broadly, this transit also may
raise issues around justice in terms of the distribution of wealth,
opportunities, and privileges (particularly as it relates to
relationships) within any given society.

Venus finally breaks free from this Sun/Saturn sandwich on November 12 after a meeting with Saturn in early Scorpio.

Between the eclipse and the
interactions of the Venus with Sun and Saturn this would suggest that
important issues and decisions related to Venus and Libra (also at it
