Hima-kunda-mrinalabham daityanam paramam gurum
sarva-shastra-pravaktaram bhargavam pranamamy aham.
(I bow down to Venus, who is fragrant like crushed sandal and jasmine,
the great guru of the demons, expounding all scriptures, and the descendant of sage Brigu. Om, I bow down to Venus.)
Ever since the ancient times, Venus is known as the brightest object in the sky next to sun and moon. Often famous as the morning and evening star, Venus is the second planet to the sun. Venus is considered to be a benefic, feminine and gentle planet. The quality it attributes are romance, love for fine things in life, luxuries, wealth, food, costumes, jewellery, sensual pleasures, inclination towards arts, music, beauty and tasteful living.
A well-placed strong Venus calls for the person with a refined romantic and artistic temperament. It also provides the chart holder with luxuries and fortune in married life. A dominant Venus is a must in all the good-looking people walking on this planet. A person under the influence of Venus also undergoes study of secretive sciences. Physical pleasures and sensuality is an integral part of life for all Venusians. When Venus is not so strongly placed in the chart, the subject suffers from lack of physical appeal, coarse behaviour, and a tendency for failure in love or married life.
The Hindu mythology describes Shukra as the son of Bhrigu, the great sage. Bhrigu himself taught his son all the spiritual sciences and Vedic scriptures. Shukracharya is the one who founded Shilpa shastra (Architecture), Vimanas (air ships), and Jyotish (astrology). Shukracharya is also known to be the teacher of demons like Rahu

Although Venus (teacher of Demons) is supposed to share a negative vibe with Jupiter (Guru of Gods), the two go along with neutral effects towards each other. Venus is also neutral towards Mars.
