The Virgo/Libra Cusp

Virgo is an Earth sign, ruled by the communicative planet Mercury. Earth encourages Virgo to be more grounded and focused on hard work, while Mercury stimulates the mind and guarantees that Virgo always has something to say.

On the other hand, Libra is an Air sign ruled by the social planet, Venus. The element of Air helps Libra tune into its intellectual, intelligent mind, while Venus encourages the social, flirtatious behavior that is often associated with this sign.

Mercury and Venus are in charge of different areas of life, but they flow well together and create an individual who enjoys time spent with others, someone who likes to express themselves creatively and share their thoughts and ideas with the world.


What do these signs share?

Both of these signs share the gift of creativity and a sharp, witty mind.

They’re more connected to their ideas than their feelings, which can make it difficult for a Virgo/Libra cusp to dig into and share their emotions. While both signs love deeply, they may have a harder time expressing it than a Fire or a Water sign.

When these two signs are joined in a beautiful union, you’re met with a smart, witty, social individual who deeply values their freedom – but when they make a commitment to someone, you can count on them to be loyal.

These are two signs that may need to work on their connection to the emotional realm, however, and when Virgo and Libra meet, you may experience a personality that loves deeply and values loyalty but isn’t quite sure how to say it aloud.

If you’re a Virgo/Libra cusp, you might recognize your difficulty in being open and expressive with your emotions.

Creativity can help you begin to release your emotions in a safe manner that doesn’t make your feel vulnerable or frightened. You may wish to try new forms of art or creative expression to see what flow most naturally from your aura – this creative endeavor may even bring abundance into your life if you follow your heart.

You are loyal, but your individuality and freedom are extremely important to you, as both Virgo and Libra are independent signs. You need a partner who gives you space when you need it, allowing you to take a step back and spend time with your thoughts when you’re feeling overwhelmed.

Mercury gives you the ability to share your thoughts and ideas, while Venus is dripping with charm and social grace. You have might have the most fun when you’re around people you enjoy, especially when you’re able to engage in deep conversations.

Libras adore beauty and sometimes go overboard on luxury items or decorations, but Virgo’s earthiness tampers that desire for Libra to go wild with the credit card. Virgo also encourages hard work, resulting in disposable income that allows for your appreciation of fine art and delicious food.

Overall, this is a well-balanced cusp, especially if you can find a way to embrace your emotions and share them with the people you love and care for, rather than keeping them to yourself.

Be vulnerable with those your trust to build stronger, deeper bonds.
