The ruling planet of Libra is Venus. There are 10 major planets, each represent a different set of qualities and characteristics, and rule over a different part of our lives β€” each bringing with them their own unique vibes. Knowing the planets and their effects on your life is just as important as knowing your sign. They all affect us differently, and knowing the areas of life they govern is critical to understanding your horoscope.

Venus governs your romantic relationships, who you attract, how you attract them, your social skills, how affectionate you are, what you consider beautiful, what you want in a partner, and how you interact with others. It also oversees money – both spending and receiving (earning).

Venus is a planet of luck and good fortune, but not as much as Jupiter. It is always found in the same sign as your Sun, or the two signs directly before or after.

If you were born when Venus was retrograde, you're most comfortable around the people you know. Your finances might be limited when you're younger, but will increase as you age. The same rules apply to your love life as to your finances.

If you were born when Venus was stationary, you have a very active social life, finding love is very important, and you have the potential for financial success.
