Venus Altar, Ritual, and Offering Suggestions
If this type of practical esoteric content appeals to you, get it in real time by connecting with Sphere + Sundry’s social media profiles…
Venus rituals, or even just timing your self-care and social plans in accord with Venusian tides, are wonderful ways to use astrology and ritual to enhance routine life.
There are many fires to put out and dragons to be slayed, in the world at large and in our own spheres, and applying the fine art of #diplomancy is often the most winsome approach. Venus can help, massaging her cool harmony into hot tempers and enflamed circumstances.
Fridays, Monday nights after sunset, and the hour of Venus are prime times, especially when Venus is well dignified or the Moon is in one of her signs, either Taurus or Libra.
If you would like to magnify the effects of Venus, making offerings and prayers at the appropriate times is favored.
If you already have a Venus altar, clean it. If you don’t have one, during this time is a great chance to create one! An example Venus altar could have —
- A green or white cloth (paper in a pinch!)
- One or seven (the number of Venus) white or green candles
- Seven pennies or a piece of copper (the metal Venus rules)
- The glyph/ symbol of Venus
- The planetary square of Venus
- Agrippa’s seals and symbols of Venus
- A mirror
- Diamonds, emeralds, green jade, or rose quartz
- Incense, perfume, floral essential oils, or flower essences
- A green pen that you use for writing Venus related sigils or spells
- A space for offerings. These could be fresh flowers, some honey, wine or a sweet, cool beverage, fresh fruit or juice, or something sugary. I would also advise fresh water, from a natural source is always better if you can get it, but a good magician works with what they have!
The Agrippan symbols, planetary square, and hebrew table for Venus are all at the bottom of this post. You don’t have to use them all or even understand them for them to work. You can draw them by hand or print the image off the website.
Keep in mind that sometimes ritual advice can be a little extra. You don’t HAVE to pull out all the stops. Basic workings are also effective, but often your return is in proportion to the effort you put in. That fact is as true in magic as it is everything else. Applying yourself will always render better results, and the effort expounded on a planet’s behalf becomes an aspect of your offering to it.
Treat getting ready for a Venus ritual like you’re going on a hot date. This aspect can feel theatrical, which can be fun or silly, depending on your nature, but the planets appreciate and reward the effort you put in to appeal to their own preferences, and it helps you vibe with their wavelength.
Venus likes people in a clean and attractive state. Be washed and groomed. Wear clean, attractive clothes (extra credit if they are green or white!). Don a matching lingerie set, a full face of makeup, and your finest jewelry. Or don’t! Just an option.
Light your candles and incense, if you’re using it. Take a moment to visualize the planet Venus and channel her energy into your body. Meditate on her symbols or draw them fresh.
Once you feel attuned, say the Orphic Hymn to Aphrodite. The Hymn follows, addressing Venus directly —
Heav’nly Venus, illustrious, laughter-loving queen, sea-born, night-loving, of an awesome mien;
Crafty, from whom necessity first came, producing, nightly, all-connecting dame:
‘Tis thine the world with harmony to join, for all things spring from thee, O pow’r divine.
The triple Fates are rul’d by thy decree, and all productions yield alike to thee:
Whate’er the heav’ns, encircling all contain, earth fruit-producing, and the stormy main,
Thy sway confesses, and obeys thy nod, awesome attendant of the brumal God:
Goddess of marriage, charming to the sight, mother of Loves, whom banquetings delight;
Source of persuasion, secret, fav’ring queen, illustrious born, apparent and unseen:
Spousal, lupercal, and to men inclin’d, prolific, most-desir’d, life-giving., kind:
Great sceptre-bearer of the Gods, ’tis thine, mortals in necessary bands to join;
And ev’ry tribe of savage monsters dire in magic chains to bind, thro’ mad desire.
Come, Cyprus-born, and to my pray’r incline, whether exalted in the heav’ns you shine,
Or pleas’d in Syria’s temple to preside, or o’er th’ Egyptian plains thy car to guide,
Fashion’d of gold; and near its sacred flood, fertile and fam’d to fix thy blest abode;
Or if rejoicing in the azure shores, near where the sea with foaming billows roars,
The circling choirs of mortals, thy delight, or beauteous nymphs, with eyes cerulean bright,
Pleas’d by the dusty banks renown’d of old, to drive thy rapid, two-yok’d car of gold;
Or if in Cyprus with thy mother fair, where married females praise thee ev’ry year,
And beauteous virgins in the chorus join, Adonis pure to sing and thee divine;
Come, all-attractive to my pray’r inclin’d, for thee, I call, with holy, reverent mind.
Afterward, present your offerings and thank Venus for what blessings she has already given you, and ask that she continue to provide them. An example script might be —
Lovely Venus! I am presenting to you these offerings of honey, water, flowers, incense, and wine, and thank you for all the beauty and harmony you have brought to my sphere. I pray that you bring a cooling, and moderating influence into the world and my life. Bring healing and harmony to my relationships, and sweeten the words that I speak, and those that are spoken to and about me… (you can make further specific requests, as desired). Please accept these offerings as treasured gifts, and heartfelt thanks to you, Venus, who is Most Beautiful! Amen.
You can wrap up the ritual and move on, or literally use this as an opportunity to go on a hot date!
[I do not exaggerate when I say that it would be a true delight to have someone @ me a post-Venus ritual selfie! 😍 #venusselfie]

Venus in Libra Offerings
- Oils + Perfumes, Series, Venus in LibraVenus was ritually called upon during one of her finest Libra elections of 2018 to bless this oil and imbue it with her luxurious, beautiful, and joyous qualities. Damiana, raspberry leaf, yarrow, honey bee, emerald, diamond, and other ingredients sacred to Venus were combined with cold pressed almond and apricot kernel oils, along with copper leaf and sakura blossoms.The result is a lovely perfumed oil, beautiful and fascinating to even gaze upon, let alone to experience. Upon application to the body, stress, anxiety, and worry instantly give way to an easy going, pleasant, and self-satisfied state. The heart itself opens into a beautiful bloom, ready for pollination by company or indulgent activity. It will act as a powerful attractant for those around you, helping you be seen in your best, most beautiful light, and feel that within yourself.Apply to the heart or over common perfume points (wrists, neck, behind the ears) before parties, family events, or social activities where you would like to get maximum enjoyment and fawning from the experience, date nights, or when you want to give yourself an emotional vacation and enjoy some much needed time off and self-care.Magically, this oil can be applied before performing Venus rituals to create a sympathetic link between yourself and the fairest benefic. This oil can be applied to yourself, sigils, or magical icons to induce and enhance glamours, ingratiate others to your person or a desired cause, and promote a charming, magnetic, and lovely persona.Available in a half ounce glass vial for $63.$63.00$63.00
- Series, Venus in Libra, Waters + SpraysAfter 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.Available in a 1 oz glass spray bottle for $28 or a 2 oz for $56.$28.00 – $56.00$28.00 – $56.00
- Incense, Series, Venus in LibraHerbs sacred to Venus, ritually combined and suffumigated during one of her finest Libra elections, ground and mixed with intoxicating essential oils and self-combusting materials, so no coal is required to use it.This is a loose incense that can be pinched into lines, glyphs, or sigils on a heat-proof surface before lighting. Burn during Venus rituals to invoke her influence, or during other sympathetic works for love and beauty. Can also be burned to prime a setting for pleasant social or romantic interactions.Available in a 1/2 oz glass vial with cork top. No synthetic fragrances or fillers.$28$28.00
- Candles, Series, Venus in LibraPure beeswax dyed a beautiful green, poured over the blessed Venus in Libra herbal mix. Crowned with genuine copper leaf, ethically sourced diamond dust, and emerald. Poured during one of the finest Venus in Libra elections and blessed by the fairest benefic.Light during Venus rituals or dedicate the charge in a candle spell for sympathetic aims. On a day-to-day level, burn this candle when you would like to create a pleasant, joyous, and relaxing atmosphere, such as during a date, dinner party, or family gathering.Each candle is about 2 ounces and provides roughly 15 hours of burn time.$84$84.00$84.00
- Honeys, Series, Venus in LibraHoney is commonly used in Hoodoo and other traditions as a sweetening influence, to improve relationships or scenarios where softening and the promotion of love and good will is the goal. As honey bees pollinate flowers, which are allied to Venus, and produce the sweet, golden, incorruptible nectar that is honey, these animals are sacred to her.Wildflower honey, mixed with a ritually consecrated herb mix sacred to Venus, essential oils, vanilla beans, and whole honey bee. Venus was ritually called upon to empower this mix to sweeten the hearts, minds, and tongues of those to whom its charge is applied.This ritual honey comes in a wide mouthed tin about two ounces in total size, which can be used as a pre-fab honey jar spell by submerging icons or small pieces of paper with names, sigils, or images. This is a sympathetic method for improving your relationship to a given person, drawing them to you and making them think and speak more ‘sweetly’ of you. It can be used to draw lovers and romantic partners, improve relationships, or to enhance glamours.One example of a honey jar spell to draw a marriage partner would be to submerge a ring in the honey alongside some small pieces of paper sigils, or just your written desired qualities and outcome. Put the jar under what would be the partner’s pillow or their side of the mattress.Another example to improve the relationship between others would be to write both their names on the back of small photos of them and submerge these in the honey together, before hiding it somewhere on their property or where they both regularly visit.To promote self-love and acceptance, icons of your own and affirmations can be submerged. To cast glamours and enhance other people’s perception of you as beautiful, charming, and attractive, print your current social media photo. To draw attract clients and money, print your logo and some money that clients have paid you for your services.All of these would best be done at an empowered time, such as the full Moon or while Venus is strong in her day and/or hour, but since the honey has already been ritually consecrated, it has a powerful charge either way.The honey can also be used as a component in other magical works related to these principles, if you would rather use it many times instead of dedicate the charge to one honey jar working.To leave room for images, papers, and items, the tins come half filled with about an ounce of the blessed honey mixture. Honey crystalizes over time and can be restored to a liquid state using warm water. Includes instructions for this, and basic ideas for ritual use.$35$35.00$35.00

- Bath + Beauty, Honeys, Sundry, Venus in LibraThis is an all natural beautifying mask for the face, which can also be applied to the neck and décolletage. I've been making this recipe and using it myself for many years, especially during the week leading up to conferences, my own wedding, and other events where I'd like to look my best. During Venus' time in Libra, I've been doing it every Friday as a remedial Venus practice and to boost my regular skincare regimen.This mask helps clear acne, balance moisture, combat excessive oiliness, reduce pore size, and establish an even tone. It leaves the skin feeling super soft and has a lovely scent.Blackberry honey, whipped with vanilla bean, essential oils of Frankincense and Geranium, and other natural proprietary ingredients, all sacred to Venus. No fillers or synthetic ingredients. Created during the hour of Venus while the Moon conjoined her in Libra.Due to the time intensive nature of creating this mask, I chose not to make it as part of the upcoming Venus series, so my focus could be on the ritual materia at that time. I also wanted to offer my clients something that didn't have to incubate until September, to help them better connect with Venus in Libra as a transiting influence.This beautifying mask is the the first entry in the series category "Sundry", which will feature individual offerings outside of dedicated series, which are still created to exacting standards and in great accord with the shifting tides of space-time. August 14th (the day of creation) was a good Venus election, one that we considered for a Venus in Libra series, but we found one we preferred slightly better later in the month.The mask coming from a vial makes it easy to pour onto your fingers to apply to the face with as little mess as possible, without having to dirty a spoon or dip into a pot and risk contamination. I use about a quarter sized amount and get 7 masks out of each vial, though this depends on if you apply to other areas.Cleanse your skin, making sure it is completely dry before applying the honey. This mask works especially well if you have primed your skin using our Saltwater Pearl Exfoliating Polish, to maximize smoothness and get the fastest, most beautifying result.Pour the honey onto your fingertips and apply a thin layer directly to the skin using circular and rubbing motions to spread it across the face. Spend two minutes quickly patting the honey into the skin until it becomes tacky and your hands are difficult to pull away, which will exfoliate and bring blood flow to the the skin, stimulating a healing and toning response. Wear for 10-20 minutes. Rinse thoroughly with warm water.Do not re-wash your face. Proceed with toner or your usual skin care routine. If you have oily skin (as I do) this causes an oil purge the day you use the mask, which can be easily removed with oil absorbing sheets, or just applied before bed so it's not a concern. With consistent application over time, excessive oiliness is reduced and the skin develops more consistent levels of hydration.Can be applied anytime, but is especially recommended during the days and nights of Venus, and/ or in her hour. For the fastest results, use multiple days in a row, every other day, or twice per week before entering a maintenance schedule, if you so desire.$21$21.00$21.00

Includes basic instructions for timing and ritual creation. Individually hand carved and decorated with genuine copper paint, the metal of Venus.Technical specifications include —$49.00
Roses are 3 inches in diameter and come in green or pink. These are designed to be kept as altar items, rather than carried or handled excessively as it will show nicks and scratches and will soften slightly at body temperature. The wax itself is solid at most room temperature and will not melt until it is heated to over 140 degrees Fahrenheit. Beeswax will soften in temperatures above 90 degrees Fahrenheit, so if you live in a house or climate that regularly heats above 90 degrees, be careful when handling. The paint is hydrophilic and may be fragile to the touch, so take care when handling. Beeswax is an incredibly magically conductive material and I recommend charging your talisman with ritual, prayer, or the Venus in Taurus incense as you create your talisman.
At the time of the election, white 100% beeswax pellets were ritually charged, melted, dyed, and poured into rose silicone molds and left to solidify and cool. Carving and painting was concentrated to planetary days and hours of Venus, and serve to add elements of fascination.Available for $49$49.00

Once more, O Venus! hear my prayer, And ease my mind of anxious care; Again vouchsafe to be my guest, And calm this tempest in my breast! To thee, bright queen, my vows aspire; O grant me all my heart’s desire! - Hymn to Venus, Sappho
Translated by Francis Fawkes.
The scent feels like a cascade of pale, crystalline roses; it is a silken bedsheet clinging like the langurous drape of a half-open dressing robe. It is the crashing wave of rapture, it is the scent of passionate words breathlessly gasped between entwined bodies. It is the ecstasy of the moment of release from the pain of heartache. It is a bouquet of swelling joy that beauty inspires, and it contains the essence of the blossoming of self-love that enables you to truly love others.
Utilize this oil to develop your appreciation of your own beauty, to open yourself up to the beauty of others, when creating art or when you wish to enhance your appreciation of the arts, for opening your heart and unblocking your receptivity to love, to aid healing romance-rooted emotional trauma, and to bind lovers together.
This is a perfume of love, of mending hearts, of union, and of the expression of love and union through the arts; this is a hymn to Venus.
