Yesterday was Friday. Venus’s day, but it was also the day Venus went retrograde. But FIRST, let’s learn about #VENUS in all her splendor.
When I was first learning astrology it seemed like Venus ruled EVERYTHING. All the fun things seemed to be ruled by Venus. All the Essentials of life or so I thought. Love, Money, Beauty? What more do you need. Venus is about #attraction and coming together. Venus’s true meaning was solidified for me in The Astrology Podcast when Austin Coppock said something like “Venus is about coming together and Mars is about separating.” I was like OHHHH. I get it now. So Venus rules what we attract, who we attract, HOW we attract. What we find ATTRActive whether it be interior decorating, people, or clothes. And what we #VALUE hence the money part. Who we value, what we value. In Classical Astrology, Venus is known as the lesser benefic (Jupiter being the greater one) because she for the most part bestows love, harmony, and yummy good pretty things.
Another way to understand Venus is to look at the two signs she rules. #TAURUS and #LIBRA. Taurus is the sensual part of Venus, the #earthy part of Venus. Venus is fertile. Venus is blooming f#lowers. I love THE EMPRESS card in Rider-Waite as a symbol of Venus. Wheat growing around her, pomegranates on her dress. Oh yeah, and there’s also a giant Venus symbol. And LIBRA is the harmony part of Venus. The symmetry of the two scales. Measuring beauty. The precision it takes to make a beautiful work of art or a beautifully painted face.
So let me introduce you to Veronica Venus. Veronica is my version of feminine-earthy Venus. Hair flowing, green and pink flowing dress, a flower in her hair, holding a little pink clutch, ready for fun! This is Venus at her finest. Remember her because soon I will introduce you to Venus Retrograde. .
