Secrets of Venus - Fact or Fiction?

Greeks believed that Venus was two individual objects.

One in the morning sky and another in the evening.

Usually it is often brighter than any other object in the sky - except for the sun and moon.

Venus generates many UFO reports.

When Venus aspects another planet in a natal chart, the native's manner of relating to other people will be modified according to the planet and aspect involved.

Thus, for example, a soft aspect like a trine between Venus and Uranus will make the individual magnetic, attracting unusual people as well as being attracted by them. A hard aspect between these two planets, on the other hand, might still make the individual magnetic, but the "sudden change" influence of Uranus would introduce disruption into relationships, so that the person would be prone to drop associates—or be dropped by them—suddenly and unexpectedly.

A hard aspect might also indicate a person who is erratic with money.

Under the heading traditional associations of Venus are: Love and romance, marriage, sociability, love affairs, sensuality, sexual intercourse, beauty, pleasures, entertainment, social functions, festivities, the arts, dancing, rhythm, harmony, money, beautiful possessions, females generally, co-operation, harmony, sympathy, compromise, creativeness, artistry, idealism, aestheticism, sugars and spices, the signification of victory in war, trades and industries catering mainly for women such as cosmetics and jewelers.

The second planet from the sun is toasty with twice as much solar radiation as Planet Earth and reaches temperatures of up to 900 degrees Fahrenheit (480+- degrees Celsius). What we would call air pressure from the dense atmosphere of sulfuric acid gas is 95 times greater (heavier) than Earth's and would crush you or I. You can picture what it feels like to be stepped on like an ant.

Sulfuric acid the main ingredient in Venuses atmosphere is a clear, colorless, oily, and odorless liquid. It is also known as sulphine acid, battery acid, and hydrogen sulfate. More sulfuric acid is produced in the United States than any other chemical. Its main use is in phosphate fertilizer production, explosives, other acids, explosives, dyestuffs, parchment paper, glue, wood preservatives, and lead-acid batteries in vehicles. It is used in the purification of petroleum, the pickling of metal, electroplating baths, nonferrous metallurgy, and production of rayon and film; and as a laboratory reagent. It's toxic and without a space suit, Venus atmosphere is not liveable.

The thick clouds of Venus' veil revolves faster than the planet itself -- once every four days. There is never a clear cloudless sky.

After the moon, Venus is the brightest object in the sky. Like Mercury, Earth and Mars, Venus is composed of mostly rock and metal. The surface of Venus is mostly a rocky desert. The Venusian surface also seems to reveal a certain amount of tectonic activity, with features such as ridges; canyons; a huge depression some 1,400 kilometers long; and an enormous shield volcano with a base 700 kilometers across.

But up in the nightime sky she's quite a jewel.

Venus data (averages):

Venus, named after the Roman goddess of fertility and beauty is the second planet nearest the Sun.

In Mesopotamia!! Venus was associated with the goddess Ishtar (Istar; Inana; Astarte), a goddess of both love (particularly eroticism, rather than "romantic love") and war.

This dual character was split between Venus's role as the Morning Star, in which she personified as a war goddess, and her role as the Evening Star, in which she portrays as the the love goddess.

Venus's combative associations were thrown out later in astrology, in which she is represented exclusively as a goddess of love, harmony, and beauty a Greek "Aphrodite"!

The planet Venus has an orbital period of 244 Venus days. Because its orbit lies between Earth and the Sun, Venus does not ever appear, from our earthly perspective, to be far from the Sun.

One practical astrological aspect of this is that Venus is never greater than two signs away from the sign of the zodiac the Sun is in.

Thus, for example, if the Sun is in Leo, Venus can only be in Leo, Gemini, Cancer, Virgo, or Libra. Venus rules both Taurus and Libra.

Like its mythological namesake, Venus is associated with beauty and love. Additionally, Venus is associated with charm, aesthetic sense, pleasure, affection, partnership, harmony, money, possessions, sensuality, and romantic love. While the various planets are connected with a wide range of activities and objects, they also, when found in a natal chart, represent different parts of the psyche.

Venus represents what may traditionally be thought of as the "heart"— a center of interpersonal and aesthetic feelings. Its placement in a natal chart shows much about how one relates and what one loves.

Individuals with their natal Venus in the sign Cancer, for example, love their home and mother. In financial matters, this sign represents the ability to make money through real estate and other Cancer-ruled matters.

The house placement shows less about a planet's basic nature than it does about the native's environment.

Thus, Venus in the sixth house, for instance, is favorable for health (a sixth-house matter), although such individuals can also overindulge. These people can also enjoy their work (another sixth house matter) or turn what they enjoy into their work.
