From a demonologist perspective:

Astarte/Astaroth, or Luciferia is a very ancient Goddess, and the enemy of Yahweh. According to demonologists and occultists, Astarte is a manifestation of Lucifer (the planet Venus.) Her loins are changed into dragons. She is a representation of sexual desire (Lust). She is also a representation of War (therefore the essence of Satan, or the Adversary.) In fact, Astarte has been known by many names in different cultures. She is called Inanna in Sumerian cultures. Her title is " Queen of Heaven" which was stolen by Christians for Mary, the mother of the Nazarene. Jeremiah 7:18 actually mentions this: "The children gather wood, the fathers light the fire, and the women knead the dough and make cakes to offer to the Queen of Heaven. They pour out drink offerings to other gods to arouse my anger." She is known by her Ugaritic name as Anat, or Ishtar in Babylonia, and was worshiped with Baal in the bible (Judges 10:6): "And the children of Israel did evil again in the sight of the LORD, and served Baalim, and Ashtaroth, and the gods of Syria, and the gods of Zidon, and the gods of Moab, and the gods of the children of Ammon, and the gods of the Philistines, and forsook the LORD, and served not him." Astarte's most common symbol was the crescent moon (horns), according to religious studies scholar Jeffrey Burton Russel in his book The Devil: Perceptions of Evil from Antiquity to Primitive Christianity.  She is associated with Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love, beauty, pleasure, and procreation, which is the goddess Venus. Again, we see her Luciferic essence in many cultures. 

Astarte and her connection to Astaroth (plural of Astarte) according to demonologists, Goetic practitioners, and Satanists:

"Astaroth (or Ashtaroth) is a major demon, one of seventy-two included in the Goetia. In Wierus' Pseudomonarchie daemonum he is ranked as a duke of Hell controlling over forty legions of subordinate spirits. He ranks along side Beelzebub and Lucifer. He also is said to be in the Ministry of Hell holding the position of Grand Treasurer. Some have him visualizing as beautiful angel while others describe him as an obscene and horrible one, riding an infernal dragon, and holding a viper in his right hand. The Magus by Francis Barrett has him riding a wolf or dog. 
Among his attributes he teaches liberal sciences, like other Goetia demons he can be questioned about the past, present, and future; he possesses heavenly knowledge and can describe the creator spirits, the fallen spirits and the sins which caused their fall. His other attributes are the powerful ability to find mines and transmute metals, reveal treasure that is not magically guarded, powerfully cause destruction by raising tempests and demolishing building, and transforming animals and men. Astaroth has a horrible fetid breath and the magickan is advised to hold a magickal silver ring before his face to protect himself. Tin the True Keys of Solomon, Astaroth is named Elestor. He governs all spirits in the Americas. The Goetia of Dr. Rudd says he can be contained by the name of the angel Reiajel. In the Sacred Magic of Abramelin the Mage Astaroth is described as one of the eight sub-princes ruling over all the demons. Astaroth connection to Baal comes in the First Book of Samuel in the Old Testament. When entering Canaan the Israelites were forbidden to worship the Canaanite god Baal. Eventually both were took to be proper names for demon spirits but in ancient times "the Baals" were denoted as masculine "the Ashtaroths" were feminine. Yes, there were many deity spirits worshipped with the Canaanite Baal cults, each section appeared to have its particular version. The name Astaroth was probably derived from the Semitic goddess Astarte of the Ugaritic, Phoenician, and Akkadian pantheons, a cognate of the Babylonian goddess Ishtar. No matter what his or her derivative was she was a forbidden deity for the ancient Israelites and still remains so for orthodox Jews and Christians. Perhaps Astaroth receives his powerful position in Hell because of his relationship to the revered goddess Astarte. To those in Demonolatry the relationship between Astaroth and Astarte can be significant because the possible connection indicates spiritual power."  A.G.H. 

Within the Triangle #1 by Babylonia666

The waxing moon is a representation for her Magickal power, which is used in Sexual Magick by black Magickians, or demonologists, practiced by sacrifices of blood-letting. (Subjective.)

Fire in her eyes,
Her beauty hide the signs,
She is devil female disguise,
Innocence has died....
Astarte, born of fire, Spawn of Evil,
Dwelt down in to Her mind,
Nothing sacred from her treason...
All is lost from her denial,
Demonized in to your Soul....
Sacrifice to things unknown!
Runs sudden to the depth of the subconscious.)
Demonized from the Spirits of hell.
