Libra Rising – General
Your soul function involves establishing balance, and harmony in your world, and an awareness of beauty, of relationship, of style, and how things fit or blend together. Reconciling opposites and finding “the middle way” is your path, and the fine arts of compromise, negotiations and cooperation are key elements. You are the dove, the diplomat, the peacemaker, the friend; partnership and personal relations are your forte.
Libra Rising and Venus in Aries
However, your ruling planet, Venus, is in the fiery and self-assertive sign of Aries, suggesting that direct confrontation and even conflict (when necessary) is how you seek to create harmony and relationship. While appearing to oblige or give in, you nevertheless aim to fulfill your own intentions. You are learning about the true nature of love, of giving and receiving, and about personal integrity and honesty in the context of intimate relationships.
Libra Rising and Venus in Taurus
Your ruling planet, Venus, is in the pleasure-loving sign of Taurus, which suggests that you magnetically attract whatever you want and need into your life, and that you influence the world through your considerable physical beauty, personal magnetism, or charm. You are truly a lover of beauty, harmony, comfort, and peace, and you can not flourish in an atmosphere of intense pressure or interpersonal conflict. Laziness, a disinclination to exert yourself, an avoiding conflict even when it is necessary and fruitful are potential pitfalls for you.
Libra Rising and Venus in Gemini
Your ruling planet, Venus, is in the friendly and very sociable sign of Gemini: social relations and facilitating communication and understanding between people is truly your forte. Your innate curiosity about and interest in others, and your ability to speak their language, are gifts that enable you to fulfill your soul purpose as a messenger, mediator, or teacher. Words, language, or music is your forum.
Libra Rising and Venus in Cancer

You have a feeling for children or the childlike, vulnerable side of people, and this tender feeling and care is your particular gift to life. At times you may be too “other-oriented”, neglecting yourself for others’ sake or allowing more assertive, dominant or needy individuals to take too much from you. Finding “the middle way” regarding marriage partners and children is essential to your unfoldment.
Libra Rising and Venus in Leo
Your ruling planet, Venus, is in the warm, generous, whole-heartedly loving sign of Leo. You are a big romantic that loves to celebrate love, life, and beauty. You have a gift for performing, dramatic self-expression, creative arts, entertaining, putting on a show. Like Oscar Wilde, you too believe that “In all important things, style is number one. In all unimportant things, style is number one.” You need a stage, an audience, in order to fulfill your soul function, for although you are tactful and concerned about others, you are also in some way a star. Leadership and/or personal achievement and recognition are a part of your path.
Libra Rising and Venus in Virgo
Your ruling planet, Venus, is in the modest, devoted sign of Virgo, suggesting that your humility and your genuine desire to help and serve others are among your most endearing qualities as well as important aspects of your soul function.

Libra Rising and Venus in Libra
Your ruling planet, Venus, is in Libra as well suggesting that you influence the world through your considerable personal charm, beauty, finesse, and refinement. You are agreeable, disarming ingratiating obliging – and may avoid direct confrontation, direct and passionate involvement, or “getting your hands dirty”. For you, as for Oscar Wilde “In all important matters, style is number one”. Your sense of beauty; proportion, elegance, composition, harmony, aesthetic vows, and taste are instinctual aspects of your soul-function.
Libra Rising and Venus in Scorpio
Your ruling planet, Venus, is in the willful and passionate sign of Scorpio, however, suggesting an emotional intensity, a depth of desire and of feeling which is belied by your surface equanimity: you appear mild and conciliatory but possess surprising drive and tenacity, especially regarding your loves. Intimate relationships are not only a tremendously impatient means of fulfillment and self-expression, they are also, for you, a crucible. You have a very exotic and creative force which can be used for love, healing, and creative purposes, or which can turn destructive and negative, bringing you (and others with you) down. Beware of allowing yourself to be ruled by those to whom you have a passionate attachment, and/or of wielding your own attractive powers to manipulate others through their desire for you.
Libra Rising and Venus in Sagittarius
Your ruling planet, Venus, is in the idealistic and optimistic sign of Sagittarius, indicating that generosity, playful spontaneity, and a love of adventure infuse your relationships and your approach to life. You will touch many. Part of your soul function is to spread good will, tolerance, and acceptance for many different kinds of people. Traveling or at least moving around quite a bit in order to make connections is a part of this. At your best you bring people together in an atmosphere of openness, friendship, and possibly learning. Beware of your tendency to be somewhat irresponsible towards others or of promising anything because it seems good at the moment (and you want to be agreeable) but which you can not or will not follow through on. Your restlessness and love of freedom may cause you to renege on commitments or to avoid depth and “the hard stuff” in your relationships.
Libra Rising and Venus in Capricorn
Your ruling planet, Venus, is in the objective and unemotional sign of Capricorn, suggesting that you seek new solutions and alternatives in order to create harmony and make the world a better place. A concern for social justice and social betterment are woven into your very fabric. You have an “us” (rather than “I”) approach to life. Active involvement in your community, especially in conflict resolution and facilitating or coordinating groups of people to cooperate and help one another, is essential to fulfilling your soul function. The arts or entertainment may well be a key part of this, also.
Libra Rising and Venus in Aquarius

Libra Rising and Venus in Pisces
Your ruling planet, Venus, is in the sensitive, sympathetic, compassionate sign of Pisces: you are kind hearted, tolerant, giving and forgiving, with an impulse to save, rescue, heal your loved ones – anyone, actually, who is broken or in need. You are a “bleeding heart”, and angel, a care giver in the deepest sense of the word, and this is undeniably an essential aspect of your soul function. When out of balance, however, you tend to be too yielding, too malleable, easily influenced, or have very weak or distorted personal boundaries: everything’s okay, all behavior is acceptable. Take care not to fall into the “co-dependent” or “enabler” role. At best you are a champion of the weak and an instrument for grace to flow into the lives of those around you.
