THE VENUS - Regeneration, Fertility, Feminity, Beauty, Symmetry, Lust, Attraction, Harmony, Relationships, Unification of opposite Sexes, Music and Art.

Hello all,

So today i am gonna write about the Lord Venus/ Shukra deva/:

The VENUS/ Shukracharya/Lucifer/Aphrodite :



VENUS is the only Planet that rotates on it's axis east to west i.e opposite of all other planets in the solar system. Here the Zodiacs, the Stars and the Sun rise in the West and Set in the East. Moreover a theory says that Venus used to spin the same direction like earth and all other planets but it toppled upside down bcz of a multitude of proposed reasons like got hit by an astroid or bcz of Huge friction by its super dense Atmosphere, which matches with many Ancient texts where Venus is refereed to as a Good Entity turning to the Evil later on. for example in the BIBLE Venus is represented as the Lucifer or the Devil who was once an Angel of the Lord before turning evil. Similarly, In Ancient Hindu texts, Venus named as 'Shukracharya' was a Highly knowledgeable Brahmin  Priest God who turned to the 'Asuras' or 'Demons' after being rejected from the post of the Divine or Heavenly Priest by the 'Suras' or Gods.

VENUS is called the Morning Star or the Evening Star. It is always very near to the Sun( within 48 degrees) so it is visible just before Sun rises above the Horizon in the Morning if it is Ahead of the Sun or Just after Sunset if it is Behind the Sun in the Elliptic/Zodiac belt as seen from Earth. It is visible as the Brightest and Most Influential and Beautiful Star in the Early morning or Evening Sky. In-fact it is the Brightest Object in the Sky as seen from earth after Sun and the Moon.

Now lets see a few more Astronomical and Mathematical facts about the Venus and how they have become the Reason for Ancient Astrnomers to label particular characteristics as mentioned in the Heading to the Morning Star - Venus ;) :)

So here it is,

Look at the image below,

Here in this image we can notice a few things. The orbit of the Venus around the Sun and the Orbit of the Earth are not in the same flat plane. Instead they are inclined and make an angle of around 3 degrees with each other. Also that just like moon , Venus also has Ascending and Descending or North and South nodes. This arrangement is very similar to the Ascending and Descending nodes of the MOON as Previously Explained.
Also there are 2 points where Earth Venus and the sun come in a straight line and this is where from earth we can see a Transit of Venus in front of the Sun. It's a transit not an eclipse because eclipse is caused by the moon as we know due to its unique position relative to earth and sun.
Now the Point where the Venus lies in between the Sun and the Earth is called the 'Inferior conjunction' while the point when it is on the farther side with Sun in between the Earth and Venus is called the 'Superior conjunction'.

Now , What is the Significance of this?

Before knowing that let us see some peculiar and unique ASTRONOMICAL features of VENUS as a Planet and the behavior of it's ORBIT or Path as seen from the Sun or Above the Solar System (Heliocentric observation) and also as seen from the Earth (Geo-centric Observations)

Let's see a few important observations:

1) Venus is the ONLY planet with a perfect CIRCULAR (actually Near perfect circle with eccentricity of 0.01) ORBIT. All other Planets have Elliptical or ovoid orbits.

2) A year on Venus is 224.7 'earth days' long i.e it takes venus these many days to circle around the sun once.  The earth takes 365.25 days approximately to make one orbit around the sun. Now here's the Interesting fact. Dividing Earth's Orbital time period by Venusian orbital time period  ( 365.25/224.7) gives us a 'Magical Number i.e 1.625 which is a Fibonacci ratio or very near to the GOLDEN RATIO of 1.618 both of which are obtained by dividing two consecutive numbers in the famous Fibonacci series. The earlier numbers are closer to the Golden ratio (eg 1.625) but not exactly the magical number 1.618.

Okay, the 3rd Point,

Here it is,

3) The Venus is the Only planet that rotates Clockwise or East to West around it's axis. All Planets in the Solar system rotate West to east. It's Retrograde rotation is the cause that here, Stars, Zodiacs and the Sun Rise in the West and Set down in the East at the evening. A theory proposed by modern day scientists to explain this is that Venus once used to rotate the same way as all planets but later due to intense friction of it's clouds, Sun's gravitational forces or a hit by an asteroid made it topple upside down. So in a way it is still rotating west to east but upside down. This is Parallel to Many ancient texts in Which Venus is labelled to be a Good Soul turning evil due to some event. eg. In the Bible Lucifer was once an Arch Angel who turned evil later on. In Ancient hindu Mythology, Shukracharya was A Brahmin and was rejected from the post of Heavenly Gods and so turned to the Demons and Became their teacher or Guru.

4) A day on Venus is Longer then a Year. It takes Venus 243 'earth days' to complete 1 revolution around it's own axis which is more then a Venusian Year i.e 224.7 earth days.

5) The Planet appears to be the Most Beautiful and Brightest Star in the Morning or Evening Sky. It is the most shining, influential Star. It outshines all other stars in the night sky. A beautiful, Mesmerizing and Captivating View it is. In-fact Venus is the 3rd most Luminous object in the Night Sky after Sun and Moon. Venus is also called earth's Sister Planet because of it's size and Nearness. It is the closest planet to the Earth. VENUS SHINES BRIGHT WHITE  in Color in the Eastern or Western Sky. This may be the reason it was called Aphrodite (God of Love and Beauty)in the ancient Greek culture because it appeared like Burning Phosphorous (Bright White). Also Venus has a Dense Cloud cover of Sulfuric Acid. THIS Makes Venus Appear Very Calm, Beautiful and Mesmerizing in it's looks from the Outside as seen from earth but Inside there is a very High atmospheric Pressure on the Surface of Venus. There are Continuously Erupting Volcanoes and and Molten lava flowing on it's surface emitting large quantities of Carbon dioxide Gas leading to a non stop Global Warming and Heating up of the Planet. Venus has the highest temperature on it's surface in the solar system. even more then Mercury. And it is high all around the year where as on mercury it;s Cold at night and Hot during day. It has an Atmosphere like earth but not suitable for human body. It is earth's sister planet looking Beautiful and calm outside but full of heat, Fire, energy and Pressure inside.It is No place to settle. Once again the Planet looks calm and beautiful outside but has very Acidic atmosphere, with Violent, High pressure and Temperature conditions , molten lave, heat and Temperature everywhere inside. It's surface is continuously molding and morphing with that lava and pressure.  There is a Lot of Beauty outside but a lot of FIRE, Heat, Pressure and Molding and Variation inside. ;)

6) The Earth-Venus-Sun come in a Straight line alignment at a point called the 'inferior conjunction' of the Venus every 584 days of earth or 1.6 earth Years or 2.6 Venusian Years. The Period of Orbit of Venus around the SUN or 1 Venusian Year is approximately 224.7 days i.e 0.6 earth years approximately. So this 584 day period makes 1.6 earth years and 2.6 years on Venus as Venus travels faster as well as a Smaller path in orbit.

In a 584 days period, which is the period of time between two consecutive conjunctions or straight line alignments of Erath-venus and Sun, the earth has passed 1.6 revolutions around the sun and Venus has passed 2.6 revolutions around it.. See image see how it happens.


NOW, ANOTHER INTERESTING MATHEMATICAL PHENOMENA Referring to Beauty/Perfection is the Ratio of Time it takes earth and Venus to make 1 inferior Conjunction or straight line allignment between themselves is 2.6/1.6 = 1.625 (AGAIN) Which is near the Golden ratio of Beauty/ divinity / perfection and is a Fibonacci ratio. These numbers are an approximation the real numbers make it even closer to the Golden ratio. ;)

As you can see the Venus and Earth come in a straight line with the Sun After every 215.6 degrees of orbital revolution or 1.6 earth years = 2.6 venus years = 584 days.

Now, Earth-Venus-Sun come in this Straight line EVERY 584 days. I.e An Inferior conjunction occurs every 584 earth days. After every 584 days earth-venus and sun are in a straight line. Now if we mark this point as an inferior conjunction and mark the first conjunction point as IC 1 and positions of earth and venus as e1 and v1.
and we mark the the 2nd such conjunction point as IC 2 with earth and venus as e2 and v2, the third one as e3 and v3, then e4,v4 then finally e5 and v5 and so on we see that after every 5 points or every 6th position or e6 and v6 comes out to be at almost the same point as e1 and v1 where it all began and it forms the SHAPE of a REGULAR PENTACLE contained in the circular orbit of Venus. This cycle continues like that with each 6th position to at the same starting point with a slight shift to the right. This cycle goes on for 243 years when e243 and v243 are at the exact same location wrt to each other and the Sun as were e1 and v1 after completing 1 whole orbit with points of conjunctions. Below are a few diagrams (forgive my drawing, m sleepy) and images to show what patterns are formed by these arrangements over time.

Now if we continue this arrangement to go will keep making Pentacles that keep moving a few degrees to the Right in the orbit before making 1 full circle and coming back to the first point every 243 years of earth which is EQUAL to the number of days it takes Venus to complete 1 day on it's surface i.e 243 days or 1 Venusian Day.

Let's see the images below as what sort of patterns develop over time.

image 11( Geocentric view)

image 12

image 13

image 14 (Heliocentric view)

image 15 (Both Views)

image 16

image 17

So Now as you can see from all the images shown above The  earth venus sun straight line alignment also called an inferior conjunction of venus Makes a PENTACLE or a Star in a Circle pattern which repeats after every 5 conjunctions or at every 6th conjunction. This Patterns keeps repeating over and over again and again. it has been so for millions of years and will remain so for millenniums to come.

The Spirals or Rose patterns seen in image 17, 15, 13 & 12 show the Path of Venus as seen from earth. If earth were considered stationary and at the center of the universe i.e from a Geocentric view. The venus appears to form these spirals in motion. Notice 2 things.

1) The spirals form a Pentad in the Centre.

2) Venus is Temporarily retrograde and Slow and very near to earth at these Points.

A planet is nearest to the earth when it is retrograde.

"So this is a Ball of Fire which runs very fast in the Elliptic Belt of the Zodiacs (224.7 days) as seen from the earth but is Actually slow and steady in rotating inside( 243 days). It is a "Ball of fire" trans-versing the Sky which appears so beautiful, Bright, and dazzling and Rendezvous from the outside as seen from here on earth , it appears clam and beautiful as seen from the sky due to it's cloud cover BUT from the inside it has a lot of FIRE, Passion, Energy, Heat, Temperature, Pressure and Morphogenesis, Mutability, Regeneration, Changes and Variation."



5 conjunctions in a row are needed to form this Star or Pentad of Venus before the next cycle can begin. 1 SUCH CYCLE also called a SYNODIC cycle of venus requires 5 inferior conjunctions. The time it takes for 5 inferior conjunctions is 584 X 5 = 2920 days approx. which is equal to 8 YEARS on earth and 13 YEARS on Venus.

For one Cycle to complete or for the Pentacle to form once in the orbit of the Venus it requires 8 years on earth and 13 years on venus. Now, here's another interesting Mathematical correlation to the fibbonacci and Golden ratio. 8 & 13 are fibbonacci numbers. 13/8 = 1.625 ( once again) Amazing isn't it. 

SO in an 8 YEAR Period the earth - venus - sun come closest and form a conjunction 5 times. These are also the times when VENUS goes retrograde for a short period spanning a few days before to a few days after the Conjunction, marking a New beginning in the cycle or a New cycle itself.

7) Venus undergoes cycles of 8 year , 243 years transit pair cycles and much bigger single transit cycles of thousand of years. The details of which i will explain in later posts.

8) So from the above points we know a few things,

a) Venus has an excpetional circular orbit

b) Venus earth form a Perfectly symmetrical and Golden ratio 5 point Pentacle design from their orbits every 8 years on earth and 13 years on venus and this cycle repeats endlessly.
c) Venus rotates in a direction opposite to all other planets.
d) It is the 3rd most brightest, Dazzling and Beautiful Heavenly body in the Sky at night and Appears Just before sunrise or just after sunset.
e) Outside it appears beautiful and attractive but inside it has high temperatures, lava, fire, continuous remodeling and Energy.
f) It follows Patterns in a Regular Cycle in a harmonious way and in Divine / Golden Geometrical Ratios making Geometrical and Rose like or flower like beautiful Regularly repeating as well as slowly evoluting or moving Patterns in time. 

g) It becomes retrograde before each of the inferior conjunctions and stays so for a few days after also to begin a new cycle / beginning.

So now let's Get to the ASTROLOGY PART:

VENUS represents connectivity and interactions. it includes bonding at various levels and in various formats. It represents equality and sharing. It represents give and take relationships, committed, promised and bonded relationships. 

VENUSIAN LOVE differs from SOLAR LOVE, Ascendant Love  & the true LUNAR love.

LUNAR Love is the true, unconditional, caring, nurturing and eternal LOVE. This love know NO rules or cultures or wordly 'things' or Conditions or Situations. It is Immortal once created and is eternal forever and in every situation and is totally 'BLIND' as they say. it knows no rules of space, time, place, person , situation or life or death. It is Immortal, Pure, divine, unconditional and ever caring and ever giving and without expectations and demands, only requiring revival happiness and an eternal bonding without any demands or complaints. MUCH like the Motherly love. ONE Sided love is an example too.

VENUSIAN love on the other hand is similar but it Requires Participation of both, involves Promises, commitment, legal binding, trust is needed, give & take relationship, Marriages, PLEASURES are seeked, Satisfaction is required for both parties entering into it and this LOVE is or i would say 'Making Love' is important to create something New 'a new life'.

SOLAR or ASCENDANT LOVE is a Material Wordly attraction cum bonding. Helps to connect and bind two entities.

has Symmetry, Divine Ratios, Repetition, Repetitive yet evolving and changing at the same time pentagonal cycles in the orbit, Evolution and Harmony and Brightness as seen from earth. As viewed from earth its is the 3rd most brightest, And hence the 3rd most influential planet on our Physical and Metaphysical Being-hood. Also the planet is full of internal , self generated heat, Power and force inside while it seems calm and beautiful from the outside. What is hidden deep inside/hidden/occult beneath it's outer cloud cover is not visible on the surface.

Okay what are the things Venus Represents in Astrology,

Here are a few things the Venus represents in All forms of Astrology:

1) Regeneration 
2) Fertility & Reproduction
3) Females & femininity
4) Beauty

5) Symmetry
6) Harmony
4, 5 & 6 are seen in Art works, in Music, In Architecture, In Stage Performances and Anything Beautiful.
7) Attraction & Charm
8) Lust 

9) Seduction and Female persuasive & captivating Charm. 
10) Promised and Committed Relationships
11) Union of opposite Sexes
12) Music and Rhymes and Poetry
13) Art and Craft
14) Occult/ Hidden and Rare Knowledge
15) Super-Specialization Courses (After Post-Graduation) or Mastery of a field.
16) Fertility as in the form of Semen or Sperms etc.
17) Wife or Life Partner or a Romantic Partner.
18) Opposite Sex
19) Comforts, Luxuries and Conveniences.

20) Relationships and Harmony among Different or
     Opposite Consciousnesses. Also Romance and Romantic Love.
21) Youthfulness
23) Happiness (due to materialistic, Physical, Practical and tangible stimuli.)

23) Pleasures from the 5 senses.
24) Doctors/Medical Health Workers with Super-specialization or Specialization       in a Specialty. 
25) Healing, Curing and Reviving Powers.

#VENUS would be represented words like  ''Harmony', 'Romance' & 'Romantic Relationships'
It represents 'Harmonizing/connecting different types Consciousnesses(Minds)' by connecting, sharing, Making relationships and bonding etc.
Venus refers to "Making Relationships" with others people/opposite sex/common masses by living amongst/with them and not by living Above them.

It likes bonding with them, making a relationship with them (Sorry for the repetition) and understanding them. It refers to "COMPROMISING, SHARING, Giving and taking(in return)" , Expecting in return the same love , compassion and feelings and pleasure it gives to the opposite sex for pleasure/happiness and Sexual Gratification.

Meeting/blending/harmonizing into one body/combination/relationship  with the opposite Sex/ with Opposite poles in our life. Venus is the Relationship inducing/urging Planet in a Horoscope analysis. Venus wants to come into the masses/opposite sex and make love with them, make relationships with them and it enjoys those feelings. It lives the luxuries, gives itself comforts, enjoys the services and comforts he/she is receiving from any source e.g the King. :)

VENUSIAN love is give and take, it has connectivity, It gives something and demands the same gratification and pleasure and satisfaction in return , So it helps making bonds and connectivity.Venus wants to make you comforted, GRATIFIED and Happy but it has the same demand in return to have a Permanent Bond and Connection. :)
