Earth and the Heavens were both ruled by the Bali Chakravarthi. Devas and Lord Indra made an appeal to Lord Vishnu to free them from Maha bali. So, Lord Vishnu took the form of Dwarf. He approached the emperor Bali and begged him to give three feet of land for his use. Bali had a wise preceptor, named as Shukracharya, who understood the trick of lord and advised him not to grant his request.

However, Bali granted the request by pouring water in hands of Lord Vishnu appearing in Dwarf form. Shukracharya blocked the passage of water by one of his eyes. Lord Vishnu took a grass and pierced through the eye of Guru Shukracharya in order to remove the obstacles. Thus Shukracharya lost his one eye. Venus rules Yajur Veda and Vasant Ritu (April and May)
