If you’re interested in palm reading, you may have heard about the Mount of Venus.

In palmistry, it’s considered one of the most essential features as it’s closely associated with your romantic prospects, relationships, and family life.

It can also reveal a wide range of information about your personality, such as your physical vitality, passion for life, capacity to love and share, etc.

In this quick and easy guide, we’ll look at everything you need to know about your Mount of Venus and how you can read it accurately. So, let’s get started!

Venus In Ancient Mythology

In Ancient Mythology, Venus is identified as the goddess of love, both spiritual and also physical. Known as Aphrodite to the Greeks, she is the siren of love and charm. She is the giver of pleasure and the patroness of the arts who inspires creativity in all forms.

The people deeply loved Venus/Aphrodite. Ancient Rome and Greece had a massive range of cults dedicated to the goddess of love.

The name Venus means “born of the sea foam.” When Saturn castrated his father, Uranus, a few drops of blood fell into the ocean and mixed with the sea foam. Venus emerged out of this union in all her splendor on a seashell surrounded by pearls. Her throne in Olympus was decorated with the most dazzling and lustrous shells.

As the siren of love, Venus is popular for her long and passionate affair with Mars. Bonds of love and passion connected the most feminine and beautiful goddess to one of the most virile and masculine gods. Together they represent the supreme pairing of masculinity and femininity. Mars was not married to Venus; instead, he was her lover.

In astrology, Venus rules two signs: Libra and Taurus. Each stands for a different aspect of the Venusian energy.

Libra stands for the aesthetic and harmony-loving aspects of the planet. It gathers people together in peace and cooperation.

Taurus is the earthy and sensual part of Venus. It highlights all of the associations with beautiful material possessions and pleasures.

The features of both these signs apply to the Venus Mount in palm reading.

Where Is The Mount Of Venus Located?

The mount of Venus is located at the base of your thumb and surrounded by your life line.

What Does It Mean If You Have A Lot Or A Little Of This Mount?

You can judge the mount either by its width or height.

  • You can determine the width of your Venus mount by referring to your life line.
  • You can determine the height of your Venus mount by measuring its fullness. This can be done by squeezing your thumb ball between the index finger and the thumb.

The size of your Venus mount is essential in determining your relationship compatibility.

If you have a high or wide mount of Venus, but your partner has a flat or narrow mount of Venus, then there can be problems in your relationship.

Ideally, the Venus mount should be of the same size as your partner.

Your Venus mount is considered narrow when your life line is closer to the thumb and has a small sweep.
