What's Bad?

The Old maestros often painted Venus (Aphrodite), in the au naturel. Venus is often seen nude, leaning back on silk, staring into a mirror with cherubs around her. In some, she is standing holding a hand mirror and gazing into that.

If you happen to see that mirror you would see that it is shaped in the form of Venus' glyph.


The glyph for Venus in astrology is a circle sitting on top of a cross. Her symbol is the one for female, and it implies the emotions (the circle) over mind (the cross). But, subtract the crescent of Mercury and you get to the value of feelings, over that of intellectual ideas.
