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.
