Who is an enticing beauty, a bitch goddess, and the queen of every natal chart? Venus, of course! Investigating this heavenly body from all angles, Anne Massey brings new dimension to this undervalued planet.

Exploring Venus in mythology, fairy tales, and contemporary archetypes such as Marilyn Monroe, Massey uncovers this planet's striking personality. A close look at her cycles reveals gorgeous symmetry and sacred geometry, linking Venus to the golden mean, the pentagram, and other significant symbols. The author also focuses on this extraordinary planet's aspects and phases, in addition to her impact in the houses and signs, and discusses Venus retrogrades in depth. Lastly, no book on Venus would be complete without examining her dynamic influence on love and marriage.

Venus in Aries: Venus in Aries is hinging Mars. She is a rebellious, nonconforming go-getter; someone strong, quick to act, a bad boy or a tomboy. She knows Mars’ likes and dislikes; what makes him tick—so he is easy prey. She is a physical, enthusiastic spark plug, who instantly ignites flames of passion. All you can do is her bidding—wild, spirited, exciting action with no time to think. She...

Ah, Venus … the planet of love, sensuality, delight, and all things feminine. Love rules our world. We think about love, talk about it, dream about it, and spend much of our lives seeking it out. We revolve around the notion of love. When is it a better time to celebrate the seductive richness of Venus than during the fall season? Some might argue that spring is the season of love. I beg to...

I understood the word “returns” long before I knew about astrology, as most of us did. Returning home, returning to school, returning money, returning clothes, returning compliments (or insults), or even returning tides (I grew up on a boat, where ...
Each year around this time, as we approach the holiday season, I am reminded of the hope that is a part of every philosophical and religious tradition. For everyone born north of the Equator, the winter solstice and its associated festivals center on the faith that the Sun will return to bring its life-giving warmth, and that new life will begin and grow very soon. I like to think of the gifts...
Ancient astrologers observed the blazing morning star Venus vanish once every eighteen months and re-emerge as the brilliant evening star. Venus has phases just like the Moon, only we cannot see them as easily as we can the waxing and waning Moon. Have you noticed a brilliant star due west in the sky after sunset? That would be Venus. She grows bigger and brighter as she moves closer to Earth...

A midlife crisis is a household phrase in Western culture conjuring up images of middle-aged men in red sports cars trying to recapture their youth. This stereotype has become either sadly ridiculous when being lived out in front of our eyes, or just downright inaccurate when it comes to the personal reality of the experience.
