The Gifts of Venus: A depth of caring and empathy that allows one to truly honor and love
the other person, the ability to create Beauty and Music and to inspire others with one's
creations, an instinctive sense of fairness and respect for others rights, an open receptivity to
life's experiences, the ability to defuse conflicts and to enable resolution,
gratitude and thankfulness for all that one has received.

The lessons Venus has to learn: Confrontation, directness, honestly perceiving what problems
need dealing with, standing up for oneself (i.e. assertiveness), not getting lost in imagination
and infatuation, not worshipping others but seeing them as peers, asking for what you need,
looking beneath appearances and not overvaluing appearances.
