Venus is a feminine planet in Hindu mythology that fills the life of its natives with love, romance, beauty, comforts and poetry. This planet is considered to be the wife of Lord Vishnu, Mahalaxmi. Legend believe it to be a one-eyed. Therefore there is a belief that if the Venus is positioned badly in your horoscope then, you may have to face problems related to eyes.
There was a king named Bali Chakravarthi who used to rule over the heaven as well as the Earth. So all the Gods including Lord Indra urged God Vishnu to get both the places – Prithvi lok (Earth) and Swarg lok (heaven) – free from the King. So, Vishnu took an avatar of a dwarf and went to Bali demanding for fulfilling his three wishes. Bali had a mentor called Shukracharya who saw through the trick and advised Bali not to fall prey of it. However, Bali agreed upon fulfilling the demands of the dwarf who was actually lord Vishnu. Bali honoured the prayer by pouring water onto Lord Vishnu’s Dwarf form’s hands.
Shukracharya used one of his eyeballs to obstruct the flow of water. To remove the impediments, Lord Vishnu used a grass to pierce through Guru Shukracharya’s eye. Shukracharya thus lost one of his eyes. Yajur Veda and Vasant Ritu are ruled by Venus (April and May)
Venus is known as Lucifer and Hesperus in Western Astrology. It’s known as Aphrodite in Greek. Nana is what Babylonians call it. Ashtoreth was the Hebrew name for it.
It governs the signs of Taurus (Vrishabha) and Libra (Thula). It governs the Kaal Purush Kundali’s second and seventh houses. Taurus is a fixed and earthy sign, whereas Libra is a mobile and airy sign. Venus-ruled people are friendly and kind.
Venus indicates wife for men and marriage in any of the horoscopes. It is the karak planet for the seventh house, which governs marriage and legal partnerships. On being positioned correctly in the horoscope, Venus promotes a happy marriage.
Venus bestows a beautiful personality if it is positively situated in your birth chart. In terms of riches and prosperity, it will be quite useful to you.
