And now...

Please note that the above traits are affected by input from other planets as they relate to the position of Venus in the natal or event chart; therefore, Venusian tendencies may be moderated, dispensed with all together, or stimulated by transiting planets, progressions, eclipses, or contacts with stars.
Besides romance, adoration, beauty, and art, astrological Venus affects all levels of human endeavor so for Campaign 2016 astro-notes of a forecasting nature, check out The Venus *Cycle in US Presidential Elections which includes the importance of Venus acting in the roles of Morning Star or Evening Star in November (this matters, and involves Libra and Sagittarius) based on her 8-year cycle.
