Shukra, Venus, is the Emblem of Love and Attachment.
Shukra (Sanskrit: शुक्र, śukra)is the Guru of the Asuras, also known as the forces of duality. He teaches the art of indulging in the senses. Shukra‘s influence on the world is very strong, arguably the strongest of all the planets. He is associated with tasty food, beautiful art and music, pleasant and polite people, and all sensual pleasures. Shukra means purity, which indicates the ideal attitude to demonstrate in relationship with others and in the conveyance of creativity. There is a mantra that explains the balance that Shukra teaches: “the Pure and the Impure reside within all objects. Who remembers the Lotus-Eyed Consciousness is conveyed to radiant beauty.”
