Venus: Goddess of Love, Fertility and War

  Broadcast in Spirituality

Call in to speak with the host

Venus is also known as Aphrodite, Ix'Chel, Juno, Hera, Isis, Astarte, Inanna, IshtarThe planet Venus is the second planet from the sun. This hot and volcanic planet takes 224 earth days to orbit the sun once. So Venus' year is 224 earth days. Like Mercury, Venus turns very slowly on her axis. It takes Venus about 240 earth days to rotate once making a year on Venus longer than its day. 
Keep in mind that Venus actually spins in the oppositie direction as the majority of the planets. So if you were on Venus the sun would rise in the west and set in the east.
In Astrology/Astrolosophy, Venus is the Goddess of love in western civilization but when we make the associations with this goddess archetypes with cultures worldwide she is also a goddess of war as well.
Venus is also known as Aphrodite, Oshun, Yemanja, Ix'Chel, Juno, Hera, Isis, Astarte, Inanna and Ishtar just to name a few archetype goddesses of love and war. This is being shared in the same context that male archetypes like Mars also have a "love god" aspect to them due to the fact that each archetype has a yin and a yang side.
