Pink is a Libra color.
In the land of companions and partners
With Venus on its home ground in sociable Libra, relationships move center stage. People are cordial, charming, cooperative and "nice" in dealing with other people. They emphasize courtesy, diplomacy, consideration, and teamwork.
They are interested in companionship, and show respect for the other person's needs and views. Seeking love, they make caring, sentimental, even elegant gestures -- to show their feelings and attract notice. People are open to relationships, partnerships, love and alliances. They want to be part of a "couple" .... and can feel the stinging loneliness of solitude if they don't have a significant partner.
Being a good partner yourself
When Venus is in Libra, people use tact, fairness, sympathy and their best social graces to attract love and companionship. They show off how personable, helpful and contributive they can be. They go out of their way to "share the load" or give assistance, or appreciate their partner's position when managing money, dealing with financial matters, earning and spending income, acquiring possessions, or using other resources such as time and energy.
They hope these add to their value as a marriage partner, member of a partnership, or team player in ventures where cooperation and help simply make life work better. They spend money on things that can be shared ... or that help both partners ... or that support the interests of the relationship itself. Money is definitely treated as more of a joint commodity now, and that attitude will grow stronger as Venus moves into Scorpio next month.
When Venus is unhappy
Under stress, with Venus in Libra, the need for "togetherness" can quickly turn stifling as people become emotionally demanding for themselves ... but neglect the needs and wishes of their partners. Being in a relationship can start to feel smothering, one-sided and too close for comfort.
When Venus is unhappy in Libra, attitudes become fussy, materialistic, selfish, jealous and stingy. People start asking, "What's in it for me?" Or they look at people and shared property as things they can use for themselves ... whether that's fair or not, whether that's legitimate or not. Partners and their assets become a commodity they keep around for convenience and "what they can get out of it." It's an attitude sure to cause trouble ... sooner rather than later.
For all Libra's usual emphasis on grace and manners, its dark side can be exceedingly unattractive.

Your Venus Energy -- So much more than love and money ---> Venus the planet, and therefore Venus in Astrology, is named for the Roman goddess of love. That's the short definition of what she symbolizes, and the minute people hear that, their ears perk up and they want to know more, more, more. Her Greek counterpart was Aphrodite, but that's not the "more" people want to hear. Like all short-and-simple answers to complex questions though, this one is misleading and woefully incomplete.
What Does Venus Represent in Your Natal Chart? -- What is it ... and why is it important? ---> Venus, modestly shrouded in clouds when photographed, is named for the mythological goddess of love. It is often seen as the evening star -- so bright and shimmering some say it gets mistaken for a UFO. Maybe. Maybe not.
