According to Vedic astrology the planet Venus is measured the most distinguished planet in all the planets.Venus is given the name Shukra. Venus is a female planet which denotes semen, procreative fluids and hence fertility in a chart and it is generally known as the planet of love, romance and pleasure and it works very well in the life of the person if it is strong and well placed in the chart. According to the Vedic Astrology Venus have many roles, reaching from being an adviser in guiding them towards making contact with their lost souls and also a spiritual teacher of the highest order.
According to Indian Mythology, planet Venus took on the identity of a man who was seeking help to his daughter to attain her dream. Venus’s daughter fell in love with a king and wanted to be his wife and live happily ever after. Venus was indeed successful in organizing the marriage, but as the king was in love with another woman, this marriage could not give happiness to his daughter. The marriage proved a disappointment to the daughter, as she remained loveless and unfulfilled. The purpose of this myth is to help us realise that Venus can help us attain many of our substantial or sensual goals, but cannot confirm real lasting happiness. Venus cannot avoid karma which is the result of our past actions. That comes as a realization to us in our life. However we can fulfil some or most of our needs, but we don’t always know what actions or circumstances will attend their realisation into our lives. To have what we want, but to find it disappointing in some way, can often feel very partial to us. But Venus can help or guide us to get true happiness by helping us to change our perception on life actions rather than how we would like things to be at this time. Venus has the ability to guide our souls to realise that material gains and sensual satisfaction can give us relatively brief enjoyments, but cannot result in lasting happiness. However, for most of us happiness is, when we have developed the attitudes that allow us to find happiness in the present. Happiness comes from within, being at peace with you first.
LOVE, ROMANCE AND MARRIAGE
In Vedic astrology Venus is the planet of love and romance. Venus may bring into our life a loving partner, but this may not be enough to ensure happiness unless each of us takes on the responsibility to fulfil our own needs as well. We often think that our partner will release us from our sadness, despair or isolation and take us off to the land of contentment. Yes a partner can give you physically, materially or sensually happiness but often this proves only brief enjoyment, which can leave us feeling emptied subsequently. You are advised to take the responsibility for your own happiness and “fill up your own cup ”with your own happiness and joy by choosing a meaningful relationship. So overall Venus is the planet of love represents women in general, beauty, art, mixing and pleasures of all kinds. A strong Venus will promote a good marriage, contentedness, and appreciation of the arts. A weak or afflicted Venus will tend to create conflict in relationships or an incapability to relate to others. American movie actor Johnny Depp has a tremendous Venus in its own sign Taurus, closely conjunct benefice Mercury in the 11th house of gains. He has enjoyed the berries of this strong Venus through his good looks and his career in the arts. The late Princess Diana also had a strong Venus placed in Taurus inspected by benefice Jupiter. She was believed to be an icon of glamour and beauty; she was well-thought-out to be the most snapped woman in the world. Truly, she was Venus personified. The disreputable Hollywood prostitute Heidi Fleiss has a protruding but distressed Venus. While its first house situation gives her good looks and admiration, it is afflicted by the malefics Rahu and Mars. This affliction to Venus can cause the individual to act beyond the customs of society in areas of love and sexuality. REMEDIES FOE WEAK VENUS THROUGH MANTRA
