Venus is the principle of love, beauty, desires and values. It represents our capacity to attract and be attracted to love and be loved, and to create beauty and harmony. Venus rules matters of affection and our ability to engage in social and romantic relations, as well as in sensuous pleasures. It is a feminine planet. She is called a lesser benefic planet. Money, art, good deeds and enjoyment are her domain.
Venus symbolizes a person with good manners who enjoys good food, and lovemaking. She appreciates a beautiful and peaceful home. In a person’s natal chart, when it is badly placed, (by sign or house) it is said to make one extravagant, opposed to hard work, and can be prone to attracting loose companions.
Physical attributes, especially for women, include good looks, full lips and enticing amorous eyes. The true Venusian influence does not bring height, but roundness. Venus anatomy includes: throat, chin, kidneys, ovaries, and reproductive organs.
Other Venusian influences are: copper, blue sapphire, lilies, sweet apples, roses, gardens, bedrooms, and places connected with art and beauty. Colors are light, such as sky blue and light green, and smells are luscious.
