Water of Venus in Libra
$28.00 – $56.00
After making appropriate offerings to the spirits of a local stream and the attending genius loci, water was collected on August 14th, 2018 as the Moon conjoined Venus in Libra during Venus’ hour. This was used as the base for a hydrosol of star jasmine, honey, vanilla bean, and other herbs ruled by the planet of love and beauty, then distilled in a copper alembic before being consecrated alongside the rest of the Venus in Libra series.
The resulting water has a sensually sweet, skin-musk aroma, finishing with a juicy citrus note. It can be used as a body spray to induce a pleasant emotional and mental state and as a psychic and emotional attractant to others. It can also be used to set the stage for social or romantic interactions by application to any given space or linens.
This water was given a naturally occurring green cast to further ally it with the powers of Venus, as that is her primary color association, but is light enough that it won’t stain.
Arrives in a 1/2 glass spray bottle for $28 or a 2 oz for $56

As a Libra Rising, this series has definitely helped me ease into more self-love and calm my kind of feral unaspected moon. I definitely have social anxiety, and while I've had some nice synchronicities after wearing VAD, it mostly makes me feel less worried things will go wrong socially, like potential gaffes will at least be navigable. The water is especially fun to spray on before going out because the glitter is so glamorous, and if you're worried about it getting on stuff, I've never noticed any transfer (though the downside is, if you're like me and have occasionally *wanted* some of that glitter to show up on your skin, well, sorry). As befitting its domicile Venus nature, it's nice just look at it!
While I love *every* form of VAD, there is something very special about the immediate attitude shift that this water can produce. One spritz and the blahs or the dreaded do-I-have-tos loosen their hold. The sense of play, of socialability, of genuine appreciation for the beauty that exists all around us comes bubbling to the fore. The world can appear and feel as sparkling, as gentle, as lightly caressing as the dancing mica in this bottle.
I love spritzing this on me to uplift my spirits and put me in the mood to socialize. I imagine if this were paired with Froggy subset it would make for a great party experience. And it’s not as though I’m covered with sparkles after spraying it, but I do feel more sparkly on the inside for sure.
This jewel of a mist feels like a fairy godmother has just doused her sweetness upon one’s countenance. It feels so light and refreshing and lifts the spirits and the heart very sweetly.
I've used Venus in Libra (1 & 2) the most of any series, since 2019, almost always applying it in some form before any social event. All my life, I have experienced social anxiety and sometimes the feeling of being alone, or with tenuous friendships. But at this point in my life, I have many wonderful friends that bring me great joy, and feel much more social ease than I used to. I think this must be a cumulative effect of working with this materia for 4 years. This beautiful shimmery green water I spritz on myself if I'm rushing out the door to a party and want an extra-fast hit of sociability.
This water is light and pleasant mood shifter - works very subtle with noticeable and quick results I was resisting the purchase at first because did not want glitter, but after trying found it subtle and easy to take away.
This hydrosol is one of my top 3 favorites of all-time based purely on the scent - but the magic lives right up to the fragrance! It's also one of comparatively few items I've used completely up. I couldn't wear it to work, as I became entirely too relaxed and chatty, but applying it at home and before artistic endeavors cast a lovely, vivacious shimmer over all experiences. The emotional equivalent of a flower crown.
Beautiful hydrosol and love the sparkly mica - I don't find it really leaves a noticeable gleam to whatever I spray this with, it's just a nice added touch of glamour. Upon anointing, I am filled with Venusian peace and a general feeling of all is well - much like the oils/powders but muted in comparison. It's just a lovely feeling. I use this hydrosol to cleanse and anoint my Freya altar as well to which she heartily loves. Get some, you will love it!
I love this shimmer water. I wear it before going out into the world, especially if I’m going to something difficult. It’s like a spritz of peace…and it shimmers! What could be better?
So this has happened a few times with S+ Materia but this case was the wildest! I got a few items from this series a long time ago and thought welp! Not a match. Smell doesn't agree with me and I am too sensitive to ignore it. Oh well! I gave away the things I bought and that was that...
Well, a few weeks ago I had the sudden desire to try the oil again. I LOVE this scent now. The only thing I can think of that has changed is I have actively been working on my self love. So I am going to repurchase this yummy shimmery water!
