Roman mythology tells us that Venus sprung up from the sea. When Saturn initiated a bloody attack against Uranus, the latter's blood fell to the sea. Ironically, Venus is the goddess of fertility. It does not surprise us because she is also the goddess of love and those related to it, such as sex and intimacy. This goddess is a charming lady, and gods and mortals cannot help but stare at her in awe.
The goddess' realm is not far from the planet's dominion in astrology. The planet concerns itself with love and relationship. Because love and relationship encompass a variety of things, it also falls under Venus' rule. Hence, we can say that sex, desire, intimacy, affection, and fertility fall under this planet's rule as well.

But since Venus does not only encompass relationships, it also knows our carnal desires. It knows our best charms and how it attracts other people. The brightest planet reveals our most brilliant trait too. When you look closely into Venus, you will know how to highlight your charm and make it shine the brightest.
Venus also rules over the arts and lovely things. These precious things include aesthetics, fashion, style, decoration, and furniture. Additionally, the same thing also goes for the arts. It rules performing arts, literature, and visual arts.
At the outset, Venus lives a happy life. Everyone adores this planet, and the planet lives in luxury as well. But deep inside the core of this planet lurks a monster. Venus is all about pleasure, as we say, but it sometimes borders on fantasy as well. Fantasies are either highly idealistic or near to reality. Hence, too much Venus will result in delusion and addiction to things, not in the realm of reality.

Unlike the adorable Venus, Pluto doesn't get that much admiration. Since Pluto is the Lord of the Underworld, chills are sent to the ancient Roman's spine when they hear the name. He is cold and unforgiving, and people say he's unattractive too. For this reason, we can infer that Pluto does not want to be seen, for he keeps his invisible helmet at his head at all times.
Although the planet does not rule over the dead, the god and the planet are almost similar. This planet depicts dark and unconventional things. And when we say dark, it's unquestionably dark. The planet is associated with taboo, occult, incest, and forbidden love affairs. It is not surprising that some people get involved with this stuff since Pluto's influence reigns in them.
The planet rules over the things we do not want anyone to see. Hence, Pluto hides a variety of things. These things can be mental illness, childhood trauma, trust issues, and unresolved conflicts. It seems like Pluto sheds its invisibility helmet to hide these things from people around us.
And when we finally let go of these things in ourselves, a grand metamorphosis follows. For this reason, Pluto also governs change. And not just the ordinary, menial change. Pluto represents transformation and growth. It is responsible for our change in perception, ideas, and character. And these changes can only happen if we are brave enough to face the things we kept hidden.
