Venus Planet owns the houses Taurus and Libra; hence it is strongly placed here. Venus is exalted in Pisces, and debilitated in Virgo. Venus shares friendly vibes with Mercury and Saturn. It considers Sun and Moon to be its enemies. Although Venus (Guru 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.

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, Ketu and Shani.

Physical and Health Features of Venus Planet
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. Venus strongly affects the physical beauty in a person. It rules eyes, nose, chin, throat sexual organs, kidneys, bladder, etc. Weakly placed Venus may yield infertility, urinary tract infections, kidney problems, feeble immune system, etc. A strong, but wrongly placed Venus causes the subject to indulge in excesses of food, wine and sex, which again fire backs on the person’s well-being. Venus enriches one’s life with beauty, arts, love and knowledge. It is this planet of peace and harmony, which brings revel and joy in every sphere of life. The planet governs the higher emotions; its greatest gift is the gift of hap¬piness. It can be said that Venus makes life beautiful.
