This page -- and the subsequent continuing links -- basically offer a comprehensive list of things to know and keep in mind about Venus -- what it does and what it means in Astrology.
It contains a lot of unorganized, raw notes on the topic ... basically everything I know about this planet, its functions, its symbolism, its uses and how it operates. I add to all this from time to time and reorganize it in various ways ... but mostly this is a page for me and my personal use.
I keep it here where I know where to find it. But, of course, you're welcome to make use of it yourself, in any way you need ... or any new learning you've decided to take on. Pieces of it find their way eventually into other essays on the site, so you'll find it all here, -- but you'll also find a lot of repetition. Just be aware of that.
