5 Zodiac Signs Who Will Thrive Under Venus in Libra

Venus is moving into Libra—and it’s bringing some exciting energy with it!

On November 8th, Venus will shift from grounded, analytical Virgo to one of its home signs in sociable, balanced Libra. While Venus in Virgo had us focusing on love and beauty in organized, practical ways, Venus in Libra is ready to embrace the romantic, aesthetic vibes that this planet has to offer.

In the midst of Scorpio season, Venus in Libra is here to add some charm, appreciation for beauty and artistic inspiration, and even some flirtatious sparks in our romantic lives. This is a great opportunity to connect with others and treat yourself a little in the process—just remember that balance is important, too!

While all the zodiac signs will feel the effects of Venus in Libra, five zodiac signs will likely experience the most potential to thrive during these next few weeks under its influence. Check out the signs below (Sun and Rising!) to see which signs will thrive under Venus in Libra.


With Venus (your ruling planet) sitting in your sign and 1st House of Self, this transit has so much potential for you. Getting in touch with the person you are inside and finding ways to showcase that version on the outside will be on the brain—you may feel the desire to change up your hairstyle or try out some new clothing choices. Indulging in self-care and pampering yourself without feeling guilt is worth doing during these next few weeks. Relationally, you’ll find that your usual Libra charm feels more electric than usual, and you may notice people want to be in your company more. The one thing to watch is a desire to want to please others more intensely, which can be a good thing unless you allow others to take advantage. Remember that balance in taking care of yourself and others is key.


As Venus in Libra moves through your 7th House of Relationships and Partnerships, the desire to feel connected is stronger than usual. If you’re single, the desire to go out and meet new potential partners will be more intense than usual, and you’ll certainly have your share of opportunities to do so. If you’re in a committed relationship, this transit may spark up new feelings of romance—you may even look at your partner in new ways and appreciate them more. If there’s been some tension or disagreements, this can also be a great time to talk things out with diplomatic Libra’s energy more powerful than usual in the mix. 


As Venus in fellow air sign Libra lights up your 5th House of Romance and Creativity, sparks are bound to fly. If you’re single, this is a great time to put yourself out there—flirting and having a little fun never hurt anyone, right? Your usual social graces will feel more effortless with Libra adding a dose of elegance to your usual desire to connect. If you’re partnered, you may feel inspired to shake things up a little in the name of passion and romance, so don’t be afraid of trying new things. You may also find you’re feeling more creative than usual, especially in artistic pursuits, so lean into the inspiration and see what comes up over these next few weeks.


Like Libra, you’re also ruled by Venus—making this transit feel like a balm in the midst of an intense Scorpio season. Venus will be moving through your 6th House of Health, Habits, and Wellness, making it an ideal time to prioritize self-care in more ways than one. Even if you feel the need to schedule moments to indulge, it’s worth the extra effort to keep you grounded and feeling like your best self.


Rounding out the air signs, Venus in Libra is ready to expand your mind and creativity if you’re open to the possibility. This transit will move across your 9th House of Travel, Higher Education, and Expansion, making it a great time to do some traveling and get outside of your usual routines if you’re able. You may also find that you explore the world in more local ways, such as museums or art festivals—and Venus may likely push for you to be more creative yourself. This could also stir up some potential romantic connections, especially if you’re willing to go outside of your comfort zone to meet new people. The potential is there, you just have to be willing to take the chance.
