Planet Venus, the “Jewel of the sky”’ is named after the Roman goddess of love and beauty.
Venus is one of the ‘personal’ planets that affect our personalities and immediate relationships. It is the ruler of Libra and Taurus and in these signs,its influence is enhanced.
In Astrology, Venus defines both love and money in a person’s life. Although, astrologers may interpret the position and condition of Venus differently in both genders, it is more easily related to women. When a man meets and relates to a woman, some astrologers believe that the energies from his Venus could be transferred to hers.
The energy given out by Venus spells harmony and so people who have a dominant Venus in their birth charts are normally peace-makers. They like to appreciate and be appreciated, are compromising, loving and sensual. But Venus can also promote self-indulgence, self-centeredness, superficiality and being vain.
