Those having well placed Venus would have a good taste for sour items like tamarind, pickle, sour fruit juice etc. Lemon is associated with Jupiter too. We cannot ignore the fact that the outer skin of lemon is yellow in color (Jupiter represents yellow color). In South India, lemon is extensively used in worship of deities and it is used in worshipping Jupiter too. ......SHIVOHAM...
