Venus: Homewrecker?

Aphrodite, Goddess of love and sexuality was known in ancient times for her beauty, sensuality, and sexual freedom. Love affairs are often under the direct influence of Aphrodite/Venus in where sexual desire is aroused. Even a married woman of high morality, integrity, and standards can not always withstand the power of this goddess and she’ll feel deeply conflicted about her aroused feelings for somebody else. Many people have changed their views of affairs under a Venusian influence and how events have played out. If a woman does stray under a powerful transit to Venus then she may well be called a slut, cheap tramp, or “that hussy.” During Meg Ryan’s affair with Russel Crowe transiting Neptune was square natal Venus when she was portrayed as a homewrecker. The actress said she was the one who ended the relationship with Crowe, who at the time had stopped seeing his then on-again, off-again Australian girlfriend, Danielle Spencer. “I hurt him too at the end,” Ryan said. “I couldn’t be in another long relationship, it wasn’t the time for that. “So I got out.” Ryan was known as Hollywood’s sweetheart with iconic roles in romantic comedies When Harry Met Sally and Sleepless in Seattle in the late 1980s and early 1990s, but she was tagged “The Scarlet Woman” when she split with Quaid and dated Crowe. “My time as a scarlet woman was really interesting,” she said. “As painful as it was, it was also incredibly liberating. Now I was utterly free. I didn’t have to care about what people thought.” Even if you think your sexuality is too shy, hidden, or undemonstrative, under a powerful Venus transit your body can be awakened by a wonderful sexual relationship and a special sense of womanhood is invoked. Venus is great at casting spells, full of sexual charms, and is about celebrating your feminity and often causes you to fall passionately in love against your better judgment. Under progressions and transits to Venus, it is likely that you’re more irresistibly attractive, seductive, and have some extra pulling power. And this is not about condoning or judging either way since as much Venus is alluring, the aftermath of adultery isn’t pretty for anyone involved Venus will give you a deeper examination of your values, and teach you about the power of eros. An affair often blooms under a Venus transit if there have been years of loneliness, abuse, resentment, sexual deadness, regret, feeling neglected, and craving attention. Venus also represents the nature of erotic desire in long-term relationships and has authority over passionate sex in a marriage. But in regards to affairs, this Goddess has a lot to teach you about relationships – what you think you want and desire, and what you feel you’re entitled to. While Aphrodite presided over the sexual relations between man and woman; Aphrodite was never really a wife and nor does she tolerate permanent wedlock. Her affairs with Ares, the young, beautiful god of war are well known. And Helius, the sun god, who sees everything on his daily travels across the sky told Hephaestus (Venus’ husband) about Aphrodite’s infidelity. Leanne Rimes had transiting Saturn finishing its 7th house cycle and sitting on the 8th house cusp when she cheated. Transiting Saturn was conjunct Venus in her 7th for a period of time throughout her relationship with her husband. I think her husband signified Saturn in this coupling for a long time and represented the whole Saturn period on her Venus. He owned up to his personal failures, especially as a husband. “We’d be sitting at dinner and I’d be like, ‘For your next video we should do this, this and this. For the tour, the production should be like this,'” Sheremet continued. “And this [part] is my fault. I’m sure for her, all she wanted to do was have dinner. I was probably getting on her nerves all the time… There wasn’t a decision that got made that didn’t have my thumbprint or stamp of approval.” While both parties were at fault, Sheremet said it was “the business” that destroyed their marriage. “I wasn’t the person she came home to and unloaded on,” he explained. “And, then, of course, I was thinking, I haven’t done what I’ve wanted to do in over eight years. I came to the realization that my name was never going to be on the marquee. No matter how much I put into this show or that tour, it was never going to be about me. And that was a really big moment. “The dumbest thing she ever did for her career was divorced me… Because we were such a good team. The last hit song she had was when she was with me. It was ‘Nothing Better to Do.'” With this rocky foundation of their marriage, Rimes received an offer to act in Lifetime’s made-for-TV movie Northern Lights. On the set, she met, and subsequently had an affair with her co-star Eddie Cibrian — who was married at the time to future Real Housewives of Beverly Hills firebrand Brandi Glanville, with whom he shares two sons, Mason, 11, and Jake, 7. Transiting Neptune opposed natal Venus when Leann was swept away into the arms of a new lover. Venus is often active at the time of affairs and when attracted to others. Other people always represent alternative love stories or represent a myriad of possibilities. Sometimes you can get frustrated and cause arguments with a current partner because you are plunged into the frustration of being unable to connect with somebody else because he/she is standing in your way. Many men and women you’re drawn towards are always fated to remain a mystery to you, and the unknown carries with it a mirror of all your deepest desires possibly being fulfilled. Transiting Neptune was square Venus when Rupert Sanders cheated with Kristen Stuart. The director called the affair a “momentary lapse” for which he shouldn’t continue to be punished, because it would preclude him from continuing to make movies. “If you took people off the table for a momentary lapse, there would be no one making art.” After their affair was discovered by the paparazzi, Sanders issued a public apology to his wife, Liberty Ross (who also had a role in Snow White and the Huntsman), and their children. “I am utterly distraught about the pain I have caused my family. My beautiful wife and heavenly children are all I have in this world. I love them with all my heart. I am praying that we can get through this together.” At the time, Ross responded by tweeting a simple, “Wow.” She also posted a photo of Snow White on her Instagram account accompanied by the caption, “Not so pretty or so pure after all.” Someone with an insecure Venus will look to others for validation to make her feel pretty, worthy or desirable. Venus is attraction and initiates a desire for another person, which includes compliments and bringing the crush into close proximity and displaying oneself as attractive and worthy as possible. You tend to render favors to the love interest and to seek affinity and receive a positive feeling. You might show your best qualities like being sensitive or self-sufficient or great at socializing –fun to be within a relationship. Sometimes it happens by disclosing something personal about yourself to find a level of connection and to bring the relationship closer. If the other is more obsessive and intent he/she can manipulate the environment to engineer contact or altruistically attempt to assist you whenever possible. If the person wants you as a serious love interest there is increased contact, escalating verbal and nonverbal expressions of affection. There are microscopic behaviors that characterize Venusian flirting like a woman’s head toss, hair flip, eye contact, touch, smile, and forward lean. Someone asking you questions or acquiring information about you through third parties shows an interest. The interested party may begin to joke or hint about a serious relationship with you. Symbols of Venus’ love or desire begin to arrive in the form of cards, gifts, and flowers, and this kind of adoration might be hard for you to resist. Aphrodite’s gifts, however, have a double edge. The arts of love and the satisfaction of desire can unite man and woman in harmonious sexuality and a happy wedded life. But on the other hand they can generate rivalries, jealousies and passions that acutely threaten the relations between individuals, kinship groups and even nations. ..It is due to her wiles that the Trojan war began, and the havoc she causes is always a threat to a relationship, whether on an individual level or a collective one.
