Since the early days of the Mayans, the power that heavenly bodies exerted over life on the planet Earth has been spoken of in many circles as being for entertainment only.
Since the early days of the Mayans, the power that heavenly bodies exerted over life on the planet Earth has been spoken of in many circles as being for entertainment only. However, using their own powers, Mayan women established their own proof that this power did exist and is the basis for this numerological-based civilization's belief in the powers of astrology. Venus, the goddess of love was renamed from Aphrodite in astrology in ancient Greek times, as she was considered the embodiment of the virgin, the mother and the unmarried crone.
She is said to have been from the foam of the sea into which her father's severed genitals were tossed and the name Aphrodite in astrology is said to bear that meaning. However, as astrology become more widely practiced, when the methods reached Rome, her name was changed to Venus, although the idea of her being able to make any man fall in love with her just by looking at her eyes, still holds a spark of truth in today's astrological beliefs.
Aphrodite in astrology was the daughter of Ouranus; Uranus in today's celestial times, yet has never been depicted as a child. Every rendering in drawings and in stone statues show her as an adult, desirable female. In astrology, Venus represents the bringing together of many parts to form a single entity stronger than the sum of the separate parts.
Planetary Shifts Cause Changes On Planetary Scale
As celestial bodies revolve through space, Aphrodite in astrology, known now as Venus, changes the actions and thoughts of persons born under different astrological signs. For example, when Venus moves into the Virgo's house, persons born under that sign have a desire to help others yet can be overly critical of loved ones. When in the house of Libra, Venus creates a sense of harmony in relationships, making them excellent matchmakers.
The guidance of Aphrodite in astrology is often misunderstood as Venus is considered to be the embodiment of love and passion. While the planet retains much of those traits as it moves through celestial houses, it can also help spread the individuals passions for finer arts. Additionally, it can have a profound affect on the feelings a person living under the Venus-influenced house faces many Earthly tasks.
For instance, when Aphrodite in astrology moves into the house of Aries, it can create a personality that is more self-serving in relationships, rather than the desire to help as with Virgo. Although Venus can induce more passion in any project undertaken by an Aries.
