In Astrology, Venus describes prevailing values, which covers a wide range of topics ... maybe more than you'd realize right away. If famously has a lot of influence in how you manage social connections, partnership, relationships, marriage, alliances & almost all contacts you maintain with other people. So there's an undeniable social component to how it works & expresses itself.

Venus' rulership of Zodiac sign Libra reflects this. Libra is the sign of bonding, legal contracts, cooperation, compromise, accommodation, harmony, balance & "keeping up appearances." Libra values the presence of other people & its association with them. In fact, it feels diminished on its own. Libra likes to have company ... & back-up. It even thinks & speaks in terms of "we" ... not "I" & certainly not the "ME, ME, ME" of, say, Leo.

There are quick one or two word answers for what each planet in Astrology means. The same goes for houses & signs & even aspects. They're snappy, common, easy to remember. Sun = ego. Moon = emotions. Mercury = communication & work. Venus = love& money. Trouble is, as with anything over-simplified, these are woefully incomplete. There's a lot more to know here, a lot more to explain.

Here we get into the story behind the story & start fleshing out details, making distinctions & talk about how the complexity sometimes gets confusing. People hear the buzz-words, "love & money" & suddenly they want to skip over everything else. "Forget all that stuff about Saturn. He sounds like a real downer. I want to know more about Venus." Ok, well, you asked for it.

Each planet is associated with at least one Zodiac sign & at least one house in the horoscope. Astrologers say planets rule certain Zodiac signs that are extremely congruent with the energy of the planet itself, & a planet is "accidentally dignified" when it occupies the house of its natural rulership.

Like Mercury, Venus rules two Zodiac signs -- Taurus & Libra. Taurus is the Fixed Earth sign; Libra is the Cardinal Air Sign. Venus is associated with the 2nd & 7th Houses of the natural horoscope -- which means it is accidentally dignified when it occupies either of those houses regardless of the sign where it's found. These houses deal with material supply (Taurus) and partnerships (Libra.)

The Full Text
('Cause I'm in THAT kind of a mood.)

Well, as the coronavirus lockdown continues, more and more we're seeing the negative side of Venus come out. People are bored ... so they whine and complain -- without really considering "the alternative" ... which is unpleasant, to put it mildly. In a sane world, being bored beats the living daylights out of being terribly sick ... or dying.

People are "unhappy" about being inconvenienced and being denied their usual pleasures ... and vanity strokes. They want haircuts. They want their nails done. They want to go to a restaurant. They " just want to shake their ass at a bar" -- I actually saw someone say this in their video blog.

So ... what about the people who have to serve them? What about the people they might accidentally infect? What about YOU catching this thing ... and possibly not living through it? Somehow the reality of this -- the cold, stark fact of death -- doesn't penetrate their shallow desire to "feel normal again." The idea that life has changed -- for a long time, possibly permanently -- hasn't sunk in. Venus ... at her worst.

This is the "let them eat cake" mentality of negative Venus. "To heck with everyone else. I just want to FEEL GOOD about myself. I just want to look in the mirror and like what I see. I just want to feel special and pampered. I want my pleasures. I want to be happy." Whether anyone else gets to feel happy while you get what you want is beside the point.

Most appalling of all is this constant drumbeat of concern about The Economy. We need our MONEY, dammit. So people will die. Get used to it. Money. That's what's important. Get back to work. Venus. She's not always pretty. Or even humane.

The Moon, Venus and Neptune are Astrology's feminine planets. The Moon rules motherhood and family. Venus rules romance, beauty, culture, pleasure and money.

Neptune rules spirituality, artistic inspiration and expression, your intuition and psychic abilities, nursing and healing, transcendence and forgiveness. These are all distinctly yin energies, receptive and feminine.

Venus is involved with relationships, partnerships and close friends -- with their varying degrees of intimacy and identity with "the other" as a form of connection. Venus is also the energy woven through all things of value, all things you enjoy -- like entertainment, comfort, the satisfaction of desires, and the acquisition of possessions

Venus
Your Inner Self of
Survival and Pleasure

In Astrology, Venus symbolizes the Inner Self who falls in love, who wants connection and community with others, the part of you interested in relationships and friendships, the one who seeks companionship -- and offers you and your assets to get them.

Venus energy shows you off as someone of value, someone worthwhile, someone with attractions and assets ... someone with whom connections would be a fine thing.

She also rules your physical resources -- the way you acquire and manage them, how you support yourself materially ... which, in turn, reveals essential bits of your psychological character. The things you value define your personal values, another factor to consider when forming at least semi-permanent bonds. When all these line up, it's a winner.

The View from Venus Series

The View from Venus 1 -- Tiny Treats About Venus ---> Always a woman ---> Venus in Astrology is a distinctly feminine planet, representing the feminine principle in life in the way Mars represents undisguised masculinity. Thus her temperament may be just as varied and interesting, just as volatile as notoriously passionate Mars, but it is definitely different in the same way that men and women in real life display the same emotions and reactions ... differently.

The View from Venus 2 -- Tiny Treats About Venus ---> Like Mercury, Venus rules two signs in Astrology, Taurus, the Fixed Earth Sign and Libra, the Cardinal Air Sign. Mainstream popular culture -- which amounts to "astrology for the masses" reduces the symbolism of Venus down to "Money and Love" -- two categories that certainly perk up people's interest. Who doesn't want to hear about that? And who doesn't want more of both?

The View from Venus 3 -- Tiny Treats About Venus ---> Simple / not simple ---> Venus presides over two essential life areas ... interests that basically boil down to "love and money." But those simple categories cover a lot more real-life territory. Venus rules relationships, partnerships, connections based on both affection and legal contracts. She deals with public relations and all involvements with allies and "other people" including work arrangements and social cooperation.

The View from Venus 4 -- Tiny Treats About Venus ---> Social fairness ---> In contrast to Mars, whose default reaction to a problem is belligerence ... coercion, force, saber-rattling and a "war" on something, Venus is interested in more inclusive, less authoritarian issues, like justice, fairness, equality, harmony and diplomacy. She works through situations that often involve compromise and cooperation.
