Venus in Business
Aesthetic Sensibility, Branding + Marketing
The goddess of art and beauty has a vital role to play in business: she rules aesthetics! Having a good eye and being able to put something beautiful together that’s thematic and tied into your vision and values is worth a King’s ransom paid in gold.
Venus rules branding and marketing, how you present yourself to the world and relate to others. She has a hand in product design, labeling, and packaging. Her nuance goes down to the selection of ingredients, colors, and other sensual aspects like flavor, scent and texture. She rules graphic design, the visual and creative elements of your social media posts, website, logos, color and font choices.
Any line of work that focuses on decoration or design has a strong Venusian influence. It’s the same with hospitality environments, where you want to create a certain atmosphere that attracts people with shared values. Venus rules that level of comfort and pleasantness that you’re looking for when you want to create an inviting space.
Customer Satisfaction + Conflict Resolution
All relationships are under the influence of Venus, including customer relations. Venus can help you navigate tricky situations with customers or clients when something goes awry.
While Mercury is responsible for troubleshooting in these situations, Venus is the balm that helps subdue an angry situation. She naturally wants to put the other person at ease. Venus makes sure they feel heard and respected, and finds a solution that restores calm, peace, and equilibrium.
Outside of her powers of reconciliation, diplomacy, and negotiation, Venus favors creating a pleasant and harmonious environment overall. Working with her, you can build positive relationships and help fulfill your clients’ wishes.
Social Influence, Partnerships + Collaborations
Venus’ role in relationships extends to forming collaborations, partnerships, and other alliances. She can help you work together to your mutual benefit, increasing your ability or willingness to cooperate and join forces.
Responsible for agreements and negotiations, Venus’s focus on relations is crucial for deal-making in business. She can play a role in helping you find where you or your product belong in the greater community.
Identify the people, brands, and social groups that share your values. See what you can build together that you couldn’t do on your own. You can borrow other people’s audiences or work to build community that bridges individual businesses and brands together.
How you attract people to your brand has everything to do with Venus! You can petition her for assistance in growing your following, attracting clients, gaining business, networking and finding your tribe.
