Venus in General
Your Inner Selves of Resource Management and Relationships

by Celeste L. Walker

Support comes in many forms

According to dime-store astrology ... the kind most people know from the little booklets they buy on newstands ... Venus in Astrology rules the two alluring topics of money and love. Like Mercury, Venus rules two Zodiac signs -- Taurus and Libra, and there is, indeed, a connection here between Venus ... money ... and love.

Taurus deals with things of value ... especially things of material and financial value. Money certainly falls in that category. Libra rules close relationships, important alliances and partnerships -- like marriage. Love should certainly be part of that arrangement. So, yes, there's some basis for Venus and her intriguing public reputation.

But it's also so much more

But like any grand concept reduced down to one or two words, this broad definition misses a lot about the complexity and range of Venus energy. When you understand its real scope, Venus energy is about so much more than bank accounts and bed partners. And yet she also combines those two special life areas in ways both noble and every bit as conniving as any mix of legal contracts, money matters and love connections sounds, even on the surface.

But "love and money" is easy to remember. So hold onto that idea while we talk about the "much more" ruled by Venus ... and we'll build a more complete picture of what this really means. A more complete but simple definition is that Venus rules pleasure and things of value ... the things you enjoy and the things you deem important.

You and your partners

All are part of what you'd call your support systems ... your financial and material support channels, like money, property, income, possessions and the attitudes you have toward them, and your social support network, which includes other people who are close enough to you to be called your "other half."

This can include your spouse, your best friends, your close business associates and partners, your legal allies and representatives ... and sometimes "the general public" if you have a life or career that depends on mass support and response to keep you going. Celebrities, artists, writers, musicians, actors and politicians certainly fit that description.

Sharing things of value

You exchange things of value with these people, including money and gifts of love. Together you form an alliance that is greater than the sum of its parts ... and this creation also has value to everyone involved. There is usually some mingling of money and property with these people because of your shared relationship.

And, there is an obvious but often overlooked (and resolutely minimized) factor in these two interests. The manipulation of allegiance / loyalty / feelings / love / possessions and property / and money between members of this network exerts pressure and control which can both bind the alliance more tightly, for better or worse ... and turn extremely dangerous if and when things go terribly wrong.

What Does Venus Represent in Your Natal Chart? -- What is it ... and why is it important? ---> Pink is a Venus color. Named for the goddess of love Venus, modestly shrouded in clouds when photographed, is named for the mythological goddess of love. It is often seen as the evening star -- so bright and shimmering some say it gets mistaken for a UFO. Maybe. Maybe not.

Your Venus Energy -- So much more than love and money ---> Named for the goddess of love Venus the planet, and therefore Venus in Astrology, is named for the Roman goddess of love. That's the short definition of what she symbolizes, and the minute people hear that, their ears perk up and they want to know more, more, more. Her Greek counterpart was Aphrodite, but that's not the "more" people want to hear. Like all short-and-simple answers to complex questions though, this one is misleading and woefully incomplete.

What Does Jupiter Represent in Your Natal Chart? -- What is it ... and why is it important? ---> Jupiter rules Sagittarius, the last sign of autumn -- November 22 to December 21. Opening up your world Jupiter, colorful and immense, dwarfs the Earth by comparison. It is named for the mythological King of the ancient Roman Gods. (The Greeks called him Zeus.)

Mars in General -- Your Inner Self of Action, Initiative and Self-Assertion ---> Red is a Mars color! Symbol of energy and ambition In Astrology, Mars represents physical energy, your ability to take action and your instincts for self-assertion and aggression. Mars supports your independence and your ability to set goals and achieve them.

What Does Mars Represent in Your Natal Chart? -- What is it ... and why is it important? ---> Red is Mars' color!! The symbol of force and power Mars, fiery red, the favorite prop of science fiction legend, named for the intense, passionate mythological god of war, is the astrological metaphor which symbolizes an individual's capacity to take action, show independence and self-assertion, pursue goals and ambitions, use physical and sexual energy, and exert his force and willpower in situations of competition and conflict.

Mercury in General -- Your Inner Selves of Learning and Work ---> Learning stuff, using your mind and putting it to work -- Like Venus, your Mercury energy describes two inner selves. One manages your mind and all its talents; the other is in charge of the work you do ... the ways you use your skills and abilities to help others and build the kind of life your want for yourself. Again, as with Venus, these are usually reduced to the basic categories of "mind" and "work," but they also include whole subdivisions of behavior and talents.

What Does Mercury Represent in Your Natal Chart? -- What is it ... and why is it important? ---> In mythology, Mercury was the winged messenger of the Gods. Your mind -- at work and play In Astrology, Mercury represents your conscious, rational mind. It tells a lot about your intellectual self; your ability to study, learn, analyze, communicate and work with information.

The Moon in General -- Your Inner Self of Feelings, Emotions and Intuition ---> Welcome to your inner world In Astrology, The Moon represents our inner feelings, our emotions ... and our deep security needs. It reflects our basic habits, instincts and automatic reactions. It speaks to some elements of our Karma and childhood home, our upbringing, family background and specifically our relationship with our mother (or major mother figure from the past.)

The Sun in General -- Your Essential Self of Power, Will, Vitality and Ambition ---> The essence of you -- In Astrology, The Sun represents your basic core identity. It gives information about the qualities of your ego, your individual self-expression, your self-image and your sense of personal identity.

The Lunar Light

The Moon Position Presently Indicates:
You want to be recognized for your brilliant ideas ... so you're in the mood to search through "all the things you know" to come up with interesting tidbits and creative combinations to use. Realizing that "presentation is everything" you'll also showcase your offerings nicely as you put them on display for others to applaud. This is not actually as self-serving as it sounds.

Doing this will prompt others to share ideas with you ... and you'll gather new ammunition for the next time this mood strikes. On second thought, maybe this strategy is as self-serving as it sounds. But it's educational, too. For everybody.

The Next Lunar Aspect Will Be:
The Moon in Leo Sextile Jupiter in Libra on Tue 30th of May 2017 at 4:56 am MDT

The Moon Will Be Void of Course:
from Wed 31st of May 2017 at 5:15 am MDT until it enters Virgo on Wed 31st of May 2017 at 10:16 am MDT
