It is not seeking the mate but the lover, the friend, or anything that makes her feel good. It is the part who flirts with those she sees her reflection in. It is looks for response not bonding. It is the flower, the nectar, the sweet berry amongst the thorns. It is the Goddess in each of us that is sought after and wooed by those who desire what we have to offer.
A man's Venus will show what he ultimately desires in a woman and will some times show how he goes about attracting what he needs. A man seeking a Gemini will become very adept at kissing hands, while one enamored with Taurean ways will bite gently, and sometimes not so gently, with special attention paid to necks and shoulders.
