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.
It's hard to explain. One of those things you pretty much have to experience to understand. But most people by the time they're six years old -- maybe younger -- can tell the difference.
Venus rules two life areas -- essentially love and money, and the differences there are dramatic. Venus in love can be both passionate and pouty, cooperative and jealous. Venus with money can be stubbornly practical, value-conscious and able to drive a hard bargain, but she definitely loves her creature comforts, too.
Maybe it's that stark contradiction in attitudes and behavior that helps define "the woman" in her. Heaven knows it's obvious and seems to be an abiding female quality.

How you build connections
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?

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.

From EDA: Venus ---> Everyday Astrology ---> May 6, 2020 Venus ---> 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.
Elements and Gender in Astrology
Elements and Gender in Astrology -- Different Ways of Engaging the World ---> The Triplicities ---> To an astrologer, Fire, Earth, Air, and Water are called the Elements or Triplicities - as each contains three signs of the Zodiac. Traditionally, members of the same triplicity tend to get along well with one another.
