Upayas for Venus


Practicing a few of the Venus upayas (remedies) on a regular basis for now can help with art and creativity, relationships (especially with our beloved), beauty, comfort, luxury, the women in your life, and even your means of transportation.

Begin or do these on a Friday, Venus’ day, with conscious intent toward honoring the Venus energy within us all.

Upayas to strengthen Venus
  • Chant Venus’ mantra (OM SHUKRAYA NAMAHA, or OM SHUM). This is powerful!
  • Wear your Vedic gemstone for Venus (diamond or white sapphire) if you have one.
  • Wear or be around pastels or variegated colors (Venus’ colors).
  • Venus rules the SE direction in general and the bedroom in your home. Beautify or create sacred space in either or both of those areas.
  • Surround yourself with beautiful things, lovely music, and things that simply delight you.
  • Sweet fragrances will invite, honor, and strengthen Venus’ energy.
  • Be creative!
  • Express your love and affection to those you love (including yourself!)
  • Contribute to any charities or services especially those related to women or creating beautiful spaces.
