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.
She's also in charge of things like income, possessions, the management of material resources, spending habits and all financial considerations. Basically Venus rules "things of value" -- and things we need to survive in physical reality. Interestingly, this includes things like manners, art, beauty, comfort, enjoyment and cultural expressions that show what we consider important in life.
The artistic side of Venus is on display in dance, music, art, drama, literature ... and anything that displays grace, form, harmony, texture or an idea worth considering. Art makes a statement about who we are today, and displays a panorama of our cultural heritage. This is true for any culture anywhere.

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.

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?
The View from Venus 2
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.
