The View from Venus 2
Tiny Treats About Venus

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?

But that's a pretty simplified, bare-bones description of the complexities of Venus. Widen the lens a bit and you see something interesting. In her Libra guise, Venus rules relationships, partnerships, marriage, alliances, close friendships, legal associations and even your connection to the public in general.

It's the way you manage your human & social connections, the kind of partner you are & the kind of partnership you want, the kind of alliances you're designed to build & maintain. Here, Venus is how you advertise yourself in order to attract others. It gives very precise information about how you're meant to "fit" with others & contribute to teamwork efforts.

Venus by sign, house placement & aspects gives a pretty good idea of how you're meant to be connected to others & participate with them (and through your own efforts) as part of the human race.

The View from Venus Series

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 1

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.

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.

Gender in Astrology

* Masculine Signs / Feminine Signs -- It has nothing to do with sex ---> Two orientations on the world ---> In Astrology and metaphysics, Masculine and Feminine refers not to physical gender or personal manner, but to one's basic orientation on the world and one's preferred strategies for dealing with problems. Essentially, "masculine" signs prefer to seize the moment, make things happen and change what doesn't suit them with their actions and choices.

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. There are also the Qualities ... or the Quadruplicities: Cardinal, Fixed, and Mutable ... whose members tend to have "problems" with one another.

From the Blogs, Ezines
and Elsewhere

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.
