Libra season is here! Happy birthday children of Venus. Since we are now basking in the Venusian vibes let’s talk about the gifts of Venus herbs. Venus is the planet of love, beauty, balance, music, the arts, and compassion. Through this planet, we honor our pleasures, create relationships, experience attraction and beauty. This is the planet of Eros and Aphrodite.
