The Greenhouse Goddess

Read more


Every sign has a Goddess or two keeping a watchful and loving eye over all that she’s been assigned by her planetary parents (at least that’s what we choose to believe at CosmoMuse).

Libra’s Goddess, Aphrodite (connected to Libra’s ruling planet, Venus), is a very warm and beautifully poised figure. She knows how to add grace and charm to any situation as she emulates Venus’ greenhouse effect, reflecting warmth back and forth between herself and anything in her path.

Naturally, when visiting, Libra’s Goddess resides and recharges in a greenhouse palace, filled with plants and beauty that she lovingly cares for, all the while flaunting gorgeous styles in her airy, model-esque ways.

As she flits about in her natural habitat, each plant is equally thought about. This goddess has a way of understanding karma and the rule of equal and fair respect.

Her example inspires those under her spell to fix the world and all the wrongs they find in their path, placing judgement on situations lacking in respect and trust. There are two distinct sides to Aphrodite’s Libra figures, fury and grace. In combination, these traits provide them with a charm that’s impossible to escape.

When one enters Aphrodite’s or the Libra’s domain, it is near impossible to leave. You will find yourself following them around like a puppies, eager and willing to be given orders as our Libra Goddess works tirelessly to bring beauty, harmony and egalitarian principals to the world around her.

CosmoMuse’s modern Aphrodite watches over our legal system, karma, egalitarian societies, models, greenhouses, relationships and weddings. She is the force that brings us love and passion.

Muse, tell me the deeds of golden Aphrodite the Cyprian, who stirs up sweet passion in the gods and subdues the tribes of mortal men and birds that fly in air and all the many creatures that the dry land rears, and all the sea: all these love the deeds of rich-crowned Cytherea.

Could we not all use a bit more of this Libra, Aphrodite energy in our lives? I think the fact that the Greenhouse Effect has taken a negative turn, means we need to allow a bit more of Libra’s karmic regulation to help us find more respect, love and harmony toward our planet.

If you ever feel judged by your Libra loved ones, know that they are striving to bring harmony, beauty and balance to a tumultuous world (although their weights and measures system often goes unnoticed under their charming nature).
