Venus and Beauty

"Beauty cannot be defined, may be depicted only imperfectly and exists only as a resonance; a beautiful sculpture can be sensed and visually appreciated, but what exactly is it that makes it beautiful? Not comparison with one that is not beautiful for one senses beauty before ones sees it."
-Erin Sullivan in Saturn in Transit

Beauty is subjective, beauty is not defined by any sort of mechanical or mathematical precision. Beauty is literally in the eye of the beholder.

Here is a fun article by Dr. Z, one of my favorite astro writers from many years ago....Mighty Aphrodite
