THE NATURE OF VENUS AND THE VENUS SIGN


We're going to find out why some people cannot stand you yet others feel so powerfully
attracted to you that they simply cannot resist your charm. And, as Venus rules art and
music as much as she rules romance, we're going to explore your instinctive aesthetic
preferences. We're going to look at both the shapes and colors that strike your fancy,
plus the figures and faces that fill your fantasies.

Venus is a planet for romantics. Her very name conjures up an image of mystery and
sensuality, but she was a seductive symbol long before the Romans coined this name for
her. The Babylonians called her Ishtar, Goddess of Fertility. The Sumerians knew her as
Inanna, Queen of Thunder. To the Egyptians she was Isis the Enchantress, and to the Greeks
Aphrodite, ultimate icon of feminine charm and the mother of Cupid.


If you are a typical male, your Venus sign represents your ideal woman. Aphrodite wears
many disguises. Today, you will see which she dons when she wants to capture your heart.
If you are a woman, your Venus sign governs the kind of person you turn into when you
exploit your feminine charm. I have to confess, though, that when reading romantic
preference in a horoscope, all astrologers find female psychology more complicated.


Aphrodite was the ultimate free woman. She belonged to no man yet she awakened a deep and
profound spirit of desire in the heart of every man she encountered. She had passionate
and fruitful romantic involvements with gods as diverse as the witty, intellectual Hermes,
the silent, muscular Adonis and the pompous, powerful Zeus. Throughout all this she also
had a tolerant husband: aloof and irritable Hephaestus, the wounded craftsman. Forget for
a moment any judgement you might feel inclined to make about her character. We are dealing
here with a symbolic goddess, not a real human being and we must view her in her proper
context: as an icon of femininity. One day, I hope to write an entire book about her. For
our purposes here, though, all we need to understand is that we are dealing with the image
of a woman who is attractive to every type of man. A man's Venus sign tells us whether he
is more likely to try and appeal to Aphrodite by acting like a Hermes, an Adonis, a Zeus
or a Hephaestus. A woman's Venus sign, however, does not tell us which of these four
symbolic gods she is most likely to be drawn to. There is an image of an ideal man inside
the mind of every woman, but to identify this using astrology we have to look at a woman's
Mars sign, not her Venus sign. That comes later in this book.


For now, while we're looking at the Venus sign, we simply need to remember that every
woman has the spirit of Aphrodite somewhere within her and that her spirit is forever a
free spirit. It reserves the right to pick and choose between all four types according to
the mood of the moment.


In a man's horoscope, the Venus sign represents his ideal female fantasy figure: the guise
in which he is most likely to perceive Aphrodite when he thinks of her and the way in
which he would most like to relate to her. In a woman's horoscope, the Venus sign
represents the way of being which is most likely to make her feel relaxed, at ease,
sensual, confident, charming and appealing. It tells us what kind of role in life is most
likely to make her feel supremely free and feminine.


'Are two people with the same Venus sign compatible?' The short answer is, sometimes
yes... but please don't be misled, especially where you notice that the female description
of a Venus sign appears to be a direct match for the male fantasy outlined below it. It's
more a point in favor of the partnership's potential than a cast-iron guarantee.


Your Venus sign reveals a lot about your attitude to love but it also speaks volumes about
the way you relate to Mother Nature.


Mother Nature is a powerful entity. To some, she appears in an impersonal, scientific

It is evident that Blanche and Stanley alienate each other further because of their astrological signs; Virgos are more sensitive while Capricorns are mo

    Astrology Astrology is the science of certain cryptic relations between the celestial bodies and terrestrial life. It is considered an art and a practical science. It lays no claim to be what used to be called an exact science, but studies certain predispositions or tendencies in human life, which are sometimes indicated so clearly that they become virtual certainties. The possible uses of astrology are endless and may be used to a variety of means. Since the days of the Chaldeans, it was known

    Robert Burns People have made entire careers off the belief in and practices of astrology. The idea of the stars determining our fate has withheld people\'s interest for centuries. Robert Burns, an Aquarius, was very anti-superstition. He had almost no belief in astrological predictions or zodiac signs. There is some humor in this though, because through Burns\' poems and songs this pseudoscience shows just how accurate it can be. The most parallel example of Burns\' personality and his Aquarius

My belief is that the nature of our behavior is based on astronomy; hence the reason that people who share the same zodiac sign have very similar characteristics, and sometimes a combination of people with certain zodiac signs cannot get along or are very compatible. Sometimes I can tell from a person\'s sign because of their behavior, and likes and dislikes. Learning more about astrology and the zodiac signs helps us to understand people and their act

    The Zodiac Killer Much is unknown about the Zodiac killer, but given what is known about serial killers in general, this man was probably born between 1938 and 1943. That would make his age between 25 and 30 years old at the time of his first murder in Vallejo, California, in 1968. Also, that age estimate works with witness statements and it\'s supported by Zodiac\'s references to his victims in younger terms in his letters of 1969.

Moreover, "after these great thinkers the world was never the same again" (qtd. in Basham 36-37). These times were dubbed the "axial period" (qtd. in Bash

    Astrology The basic astrological assumptions are not hard to grasp. For if astronomy is the study of the movements of the heavenly bodies, then astrology is the study of the effects of those movements. The astronomers of the ancient world assumed a division of the universe whereby the superior, immutable bodies of the celestial worlds ruled over the terrestrial or sublunary sphere, where all was mortality and change. It was assumed that the stars had special qualities and influences which were t
