The Seven Planets of Ancient Astrology - Venus

Venus - she is of a bright shining colour. Her greatest north or south latitude is 2 degrees and 2 minutes. When she rises well-dignified in a nativity the person born will be of middle stature, rather inclining to shortness, with a beautiful complexion, light brown hair, the eyes large, of a blue or grey colour and with a slow and rather languishing movement, red lips, and dimples in the cheeks, chin and about the mouth. In disposition, gracious, very tender, inclined to love-making; easy of belief and not given to labour about anything; fond of music, plays, and all sorts of merry-makings.
When ill-dignified at birth Venus causes the native to be over-fat, with thick lips, and much flesh about the chin and cheeks. In disposition, sensual, riotous and immoral.
Venus governs the lower parts of the body, and the illnesses she gives are cancer and all affections of the womb.
All the herbs she governs have a sweet smell and, generally, have smooth leaves and white flowers, such as the lily, both white and yellow, and the lily of the valley, also the water lily, the myrtle, maidenhair, violets and roses.
The trees she rules are the walnut, the almond, the apple-tree, the box-tree, the sycamore, the ash and myrtle.
Of beasts, the hart, the rabbit, the calf and all small cattle. Of birds, the dove, the sparrow, the nightingale, the swan, the pelican and the swallow.
Her metal is copper.
Her stones, white and red coral, rubies, the beryl, turquoise and lapis-lazuli, because it expels melancholy.
Her colours are white and purple.
Her orb is 7 degrees before and after any aspect.
Her day of the week is Friday, of which she rules the first and eighth hour after sunrise. Her number is 45.
Her friends are all the planets, but Saturn is the least sympathetic to her.
