Venus is the personal planet representing grace, ease and joy in life. One of Venus’ roles in the chart is to be a cooling influence. So it may be surprising that Venus is the hottest planet in our solar system. Interestingly, Venus spins slowly in the opposite direction as compared to the other planets (except for Uranus). In fact, Venus’ day lasts longer than Venus’ year. Similarly, in astrology, Venus helps us slow down a bit and appreciate the good things in life.
Venus is a Yin planet – feminine and receptive. Venus was considered mainly Warm and Moist by the ancients but also a little Cold and Wet. Venus rules the kidneys, veinous circulation, aesthetics and the sense of taste, especially sweet taste.
