Venus

Venus
Roman Myth:
Venus was the goddess of love and beauty. To her perfect figure and pure features, she added an innocent, sportive manner. On her sweet face she always wore a smile. She bore the Greek epithets Cyprian, for her place of birth, in the waters just off Cyprus, and "fair-buttocked". Her Greek name, Aphrodite, means literally "wave-born".

Aztec Myth:
Tlahuizcalpantecuhtli was an Aztec god whose symbols were the planet Venus and the feathered serpent, Quetzalcoatl. The Aztecs believed that Tlahuizcalpantecuhtli ruled the sky at noon (the twelfth hour of the day). Rituals were performed when the planet Venus was aligned with the Pleiades, known by the Aztecs as Tianquiztli. We can admire their awe of this deity at Tula, Mexico, at the temple of Tlahuizcalpantecuhtli.
