Venus is the sister planet of the Earth as their dimensions are very similar. The ancients adored, but also feared Venus as the Goddess of Love and Beauty, born from the foam of the sea. Her blessings are truly blissful, but her spite or revenge could be terrible if she felt wronged.
Astrologically, Venus represents one's attitudes to love and relationships as well as ones own sense of desirability and beauty, which fuels the power of attraction. She signifies what one seeks in a relationship. Venus also rules the finer things of life, the arts, dance, painting, design, as well as the culinary arts - after all love goes through the stomach, but before it gets there it passes the test of the senses.
VENUS ~ Open heart chakra, love, compassion, sensuality, giving and receiving, prosperity.
The planets are the wandering stars that travel around the Zodiac and in astrological terminology include Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. Modern astrology has added Uranus, Neptune and Pluto to the list. The ancients regarded them as a pantheon of deities whose dynamic interactions had their repercussions in our world. People worshipped and honoured the Gods with rituals and ceremonies or prayed for their divine support in their various endeavours: to win a battle or a maiden's heart, or grant a plentiful harvest and send good weather. Modern astrologers tend to 'psychologize' these deities and regard the planets as parts of the personality.
