The Goddess of love. The ruler of the star sign Taurus and my favourite Goddess, although I don't feel as though she is my patron Goddess which is quite strange.
A modern Venus is any woman who is using her feminine wiles to seduce her man. But also any woman who makes the most of what she has, looks wise, body wise, intellectually. Venus women embrace their femininity and are not ashamed of it, they maximise their lives by using what they have - i.e. their womanliness.
This is how I view a modern Venus, as all women at one point or another in their lives.
