8.6) Venus : "Venus is joyful in spirit, possesses a beautiful body, is splendorous and has lovely eyes; she is the inspiration of poets, is watery and airy in constitution (Kapha and vata) and has curly hair.”--- Parashari 3.28

Venus manifests the feminine spirit; she is well known as the Goddess of love and beauty. Our Venus shows our affection and sense of harmony in life. It is Venus which gives us the capacity to be content and happy. Venus is our appreciation of the beautiful and as such, represents our aesthetic sense. Venus is significator of art, poetry, painting, music and dance. She is our music in life, our sense of the beloved that draws out our creative expressions. She indicates our sensitivity, refinement and gentleness.

On the lower or outer level, Venus shows our seeking for pleasure, comfort and luxury. She represents pleasure of our senses, and the comforts of the body. She is sexuality and sexual attraction and serves to make either the woman or man more appealing and attractive to the opposite sex. In a man’s chart, the signifier of his spouse will be Venus. She seeks wealth as an adornment and not merely as accumulation. Her concern is not just with quantity, but with quality and good test. She likes gems, antiques, and things of special and unique value. She seeks not just for the joy of possessing but to have the adulation of others. This can also be negative influence and she can be inclined to be vain, superficial and affected-and mere show. This will depend on the status of Venus in the chart, be it a man or woman. She likes not only to exhibit herself and her own beauty, but to display her adornments which serve to embellish her. She demands that we please her and that we be pleasing to her. She can degenerate into the pleasure that dissipates exhausts and debilitates, the self indulgence that can eventually destroys us. In this regard, Venus is the seductress. She is attractive and fascinating. The web of her power can catch our energy like a spider and drain away our fire - our positive will in life…. pursuing her favor, which is often fickle or hard to get or impossible to attain.

But a good Venus in the chart is the morning star,the light of inspiration which is the first spark of the Sun of truth. She opens us up to the kingdoms and realms of art and beauty of the Gods. These include not only the realms of art and myth but also many psychic abilities, powers of visualization, and creative direction of the mind force. On the highest levels, she opens us up to the heavens of devotion wherein we can commune with the Divine in the form that appeals us most.

Modern culture is bringing out aspects of a negative occult Venus in the mass media, with its massive sensuality and cult of sex and violence. Unless we are very careful, and we are able to use this glamour force in the right way otherwise we will also get destroyed like ancient civilizations which were completely immersed in sensual pleasure and cult of sex and violence. Venus can heal us if used consciously or destroy us if used selfishly. Through strong and higher qualities of Venus we will be able to experience ‘Ananda, the Divine Bliss’ in creation.
