Venus, otherwise known as Shukra in Vedic astrology, is a benefic planet. However, when placed in conjunction with a malefic planet or when posited unfavourably in a birth chart, it can bring on adverse effects.
Venus is a feminine and gentle planet. It is also the brightest planet in the solar system. It is known for love, romance, sex, beauty, fashion, recreation, luxuries, art & aesthetics, and physical attractiveness. It rules over love and all kinds of relationships, and other emotional attachments. Venus also blesses the native with wealth and riches.
While a good Venus is a treasure trove for romance, luxury, and sensual pleasures, a malefic Venus contributes unfaithfulness, bankruptcy, and venereal diseases. You can check such propensities by using remedies for planet Venus.
