Named in Honor of The Roman Goddess, and personifying The Feminine Divine, Beauty and Love. Her significance throughout the history of humanity would fill volumes. (As a Librian, She is also my Ruling Planet; just as She is to Taurans.)

Some of the many Names of Venus throughout history, just may surprise you!
Jesus, Horus, Lucifer, Josef and Prometheus! Certainly however, She has been more kindly accepted as Ishtar, Kileken, TaiPei, Sukra, Tioumoutiri /Ouaiti (Hathor/Isis), Noga, Helel, and Phosphorus/Hesperus (Aphrodite/Venus) and more!
Additional details about some of her more ancient associations are noted below:
♀ Sumeria/Babylonia— “Dil-bat in Akkadia” = The Star of Ishtar
♀ Maasai— “Kileken”
♀ China— “Tai Pei” = The Beautiful White One
♀ Jyotitvida (Hindu)— “Sukra” = Clear/Pure/Brightness in Sanskrit; associated with Indriani, Queen of The Gods & Indra as Over-Ruler; symbolized by the gemstone Diamond
♀ Egypt— Interpreted as two separate visible bodies “Tioumoutiri” just before sunrise & “Ouaiti” just before sunset; later associated with the duality of Isis & Hathor in the Dynastic eras; with the understanding of Venus as one Celestial Body, She retained her association with Hathor, while Sirius became Isis
♀ Hebrew— “Noga (Planet) /Helel (Archangel)/Ayeleth-ha-Shakhar/Kochav-ha-‘Erev” = shining/bright/deer of the dawn/star of the evening (consecutively)
♀ Greece— Similar to the Egyptians, the morning “Phosphorus” & evening “Hesperus”; with the same later discovery the Greeks retained her morning assoication with the name of her counterpart, Aphrodite (Phoenician Astarte)
♀ Rome— (of course) Honored Her with the name of by which we know Her today.
♀ Australia—  “Barnumbirr” = The Creator Spirit that “Sang” The World to Life; in the early hours before dawn, she draws behind her a rope of light attached to the Earth (i.e. The Sun); the aboriginal Yongu still honor this legendary part of their culture today.
♀ The Maya— “Chak Ek” = The Great Star; She was their most observed & important celestial body

About Coach Mandy

I am goal driven, knowledge seeking, challenge needing, balance finding, Child of The Universe. I believe that what I can dream, I can manifest; it's all just a matter of priorities. I've found that when I do the next right thing, life falls into place. I've learned my most valuable lessons through adversity (usually on the other side of & often long after). "I've been up and down and over and out and I know one thing...” Nothing lasts forever except for the love, beauty & truth of The Great Universal Spirit. This One Source (manifested in my life as The Goddess, Isis), always loves me, finds no imperfection in me, and is perpetually & infinitely available to me. (The only other being I know of in this realm who comes close to this is my dog.) I own and operate The Coaching Corner & Pro Fitness Studio where I offer a variety of fitness services, but my true passion lies in the work I do as Personal Trainer & Fitness Coach. I enjoy all aspects of self-improvement & well-being; but I have found that my joy in working in the fitness industry lies not just in witnessing my clients achieve their goals, but in seeing them actually transform their lives. In this, I get to be a part of something greater than myself. There is nothing of value I can obtain, that does not increase a thousand fold, upon my bestowal of it to someone else. Furthermore, when I am seen by others as a leader and a role model, I am forced to be as accountable (or more) as I expect my clients to be. In this arrangement I have always gained so much more than I could ever give. I have completed my entire didactic curriculum requisites for my PhD in Exercise Physiology at University of Miami, including an outside-supporting-field in Psychology. (Doctoral Qualifying Exams and Doctoral Dissertation remain to be addressed...) My current credentials include:  • M.S.Ed., Exercise Physiology • B.S., Exercise Physiology/Biology (Double Major) • Dietetic Technician Registered (DTR)  • Licensed Certified Wellcoach® • American College of Sports Medicine, Health & Fitness Specialist (ACSM/HFS)
