Venus Altar, Ritual, and Offering Suggestions
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' Aerial Delight
Anointing Oils, Incense, Powders, Series, Venus' Aerial DelightVenusian herbs and sakura blossom featured in Sphere + Sundry's maiden Venus in Libra series: damiana, fenugreek, red clover, plantain, and more, combined with Agrippan correspondences for the fixed star Spica: periwinkle, mugwort, and emerald — ritually fumigated, consecrated, and made Celestial Sacrament in the garden of our Aerial Delight election window. The Oils were immersed in 100% organic jojoba at the time of creation, before being tucked into 5-months of quiet, restorative beauty sleep alongside Her series sistren. Consecrated herbs were roused and powdered in the hour of Venus, given additional shimmering adornments of excess emerald and 22k rose gold. Essential oils of whimsical galbanum, high-femme clary sage, and sundry others. The Aerial Queen's offerings call forth a refreshing breeze — worries dispel, instantly composting into refreshing blooms of the mind-heart. "All is well" she whispers... and we believe Her! Induce emotional micro-vacations with but a drop from a vial, or a soft sprinkling of powder, or a waft of Her intoxicating incense. Lighten the load... Live and let live...

Don't be so hard on yourself, and temper everything /anything life throws your way — including other series (via layering). Take the edge off of external conditions and internal states. Learn to let go, and to be, and how (be)autiful that **really**, truly is. and You are. because — if nothing else — She tells you so. and you believe Her.

Anointing Oils, Incense, Powders, Series, Venus' Aerial DelightBeautiful, young Eirene is the Greek Goddess of Peace, Wealth and Plenty — a member of the second triad of the Horae, oft' depicted carrying a cornucopia, scepter, torch, and rhyton in works of classical art. In a world torn apart by ideological extremism (and isolation, e.g disconnection for how words and actions impact others), this subset is for the Restoration of Faith — in Ourselves, and in Humanity. A magical invitation to return to orderly, pro-social sense and right-relationship. It provides a perfectly calibrated psychic Scale upon which to weigh our own needs and beliefs against those of the world around us, holding two spaces — equal and objective — and seeing clearly the result. How the scales rise and fall (when the bullshit has been taken off them) begs the question — What is inequitable here? What is disturbing balance? Interfering with the stable possibility of true Peace? The Eirene subset provides diplomatic gravitas and mental scaffolding to correct such dynamics, all the while issuing a cardinal edict to take action. "Harmony" is all too often established by someone selling themselves short — by sacrificing themselves at the altar of "not disturbing the peace" in response to others not carrying their own weight. "That is not sustainable", the Scales say. It is the stoking of bitterness, simultaneously crippling opportunities for growth on both sides. Thus, Eirene is for those who need to learn to stand up for themselves, and/ or to sit tf down — have fun discovering where and which! Because: not everyone else is wrong. We are not always right. We *all* have our parts and needs in relational dynamics + human beings must learn to speak *with* one another again. Be willing to correct anything that gets in the way of the most precious resource the modern world has hunted to the very edge of extinction — a sense of Peace. of Equity. of Right Accord. And therefore, Plenty. Apply to establish inner and exterior balance. To become more Gracious and Judicial in word, thought, and deed. Before yoga, meditative contemplation, or other activities that emphasize balance. Or difficult conversations, boundary setting moments, and times where honesty tempered by good faith make all the difference. Anoint the temples, back of the neck, the wrists, lower back, heart, and hips. Created during the Venus' Aerial Delight election window, with additions of dove feather, wheat stalk, freshwater pearl, ashwaganda, vanilla bean, olive leaf, and jasmine. Master root, deer's tongue, white lotus, slippery elm, corn flower, devil's shoestring, rosemary, and royal jelly powder (the nectar upon which the Queen Bee feeds). Ritually harvested peace lily, emerald, freshwater pearl, and 22k rose gold. The Oil is a combination of organic olive and jojoba. Lavender soothes agitation, hyssop makes way for redemption, and manuka offers grounded, Saturnian stability. Eirene says: "In order to have peace, we must pave Roads to Redemption." Roads which begin with honest, good faith conversations, wherein Hard boundaries and Soft boundaries can be established. The space in the middle, a battleground (or is it a garden?) wherein to establish our diplomatic aims. Advocate for yourself and others. Intervene where there is inequity. and do so from a place of Libran balance — well considered, thoughtful, and moderated, fortified with Saturnian scaffolding. Akin to Venus in Libra/ core Aerial Delight x Immortal Heart x Deneb Algedi, but a beautiful thing all Her own. Probably the most useful, life-changing offering I've ever made — at least for this people-pleasing, boundary-challenged, self-sacrificing yet Mars-y Libra... Learn Scale Gnosis, and practice the fine art of Diplomancy. Oil of Eirene arrives in your selection of a 1/2 oz glass vial with freshwater pearl, emerald, and 22k rose gold for $84, a 10 ml rose gold plated roller ($105), or 10 ml rose quartz roller ($68). Eirene's Incense and/ or Powder is available in your choice of 2 oz bulk pot ($90) or standard 1/2 oz vial ($30). Note that the Aerial Queen's subset is for more generalized Venus in Libra things — more appropriate for relaxation, enjoyment, and the like...$30.00 – $105.00$30.00 – $105.00

This can be used in such a way, or as a type of Venusian Florida Water for energetic cleansing, drawing peace, love, and adoration — anytime or before ritual. Makes it difficult for nasties to glom on or penetrate the auric body. Shake well to integrate and disburse drops of essential oil before use. Energy Clearing Protocol For energetic cleansing, sprinkle about a half teaspoon onto the palms of the hands and gently but thoroughly rub together for 10 or so seconds, coating both sides. The hands can float 2 inches from the body or be lightly touching it. Stand and run your palms from the crown of your head down the back of the head, then start from the top again, going down the front of your face and body, all the way down to the tops of your feet. If you feel any areas “sticking”, continue stroking them until energies disperse, and then proceed with downward sweeping. Continue skimming from the head downward, running your cologned hands across every surface area, including under the arms, groin, and rear, concluding with the bottoms of the feet by lifting them. You can “flick” the energy off if it feels right, or it will dissipate naturally, however you prefer. Take 10-30 seconds to close your eyes and integrate the cleansing, feeling the shift, and thank Venus for her protection, sealing the auric body from that which does not serve.

A DISTANT SONG Whether awake or sleeping, I cannot rest for long: By my casement comes creeping A distant song. A song like the chiming of silver Bells which the breezes play, Seeming to float for ever Towards an unseen day: A song that is weary with sorrow, Yet knows not any defeat: Through the past, through to-day, through to-morrow, It echoes on life’s long street. Could I but make words of its power, Bring it from the future here, Men’s souls would be waking, that hour, To the victory against fear. But the vague sweet stanza befools me With its calm joy, time after time, And no failure here ever schools me To cease from an idle rhyme. That music afar, unspoken, ’Tis I have done it wrong: I caught, and I have broken, A distant song. This oil was inspired by a poem that reflects an aspect of Venus' dance with Spica: A Distant Song by John Gould Fletcher. This oil assists in healing emotional wounds caused by fear, pain or resentment. It helps enable people to be more loving and more receptive to love.

Turkish colognes are often sprinkled upon the hands before entering households and business establishments, providing natural sanitation and also a delightful scent. ⠀ ⠀ Sphere + Sundry’s talismanic Kolonías can be used in such a way, or as Celestial Florida Waters for energetic cleansing — promoting clarity and way-opening, as life demands or before ritual. ⠀ ⠀ Doing the following makes it difficult for nasties to glom on or penetrate the auric body, and establishes a clean slate which potentiates the efficacy of other materia…⠀ ⠀ Shake well to integrate and disburse organic essential oils, colloidal metals, and botanically derived colors.⠀
⠀Quick Kolonía Clearing Protocol ⠀ ⠀ Sprinkle about a half teaspoon onto the palm of the hand and gently rub both together for 5-10 seconds, coating tops and bottoms. The hands can float 2 inches from the body or lightly skim it.⠀ ⠀ Stand and run your palms from the crown of your head down the back of it, then start from the top again, going down the sides, the front of the face and down body, all the way to the tops of your feet. Sweep multiple times. ⠀ ⠀ If you feel any areas “sticking”, continue stroking until energies disperse, and then proceed with additional downward sweeping.⠀ ⠀ Continue skimming downward, running your cologned hands across every surface area, including under the arms, groin, between the legs, and rear, concluding with the bottoms of the feet by lifting them. You can “flick” the energy off if it feels right, or it will dissipate naturally, however you prefer.⠀ ⠀ Take 10-30 seconds to close your eyes and integrate the cleansing, feeling the shift, and thank your chosen Power for the cleansing and protection it provided, sealing the auric body from negativity.⠀ ⠀ Kolonías also serve to anoint and sanctify the hands, and can be used before performing energy work, ritual work, or any activity related to each series’ arcana – on oneself, one’s clients, or loved ones. They can be used to cleanse objects, spaces, and add oomph to spiritual baths, as well as added to floor washes, essential oil diffusers, or dishes of water kept at the bedside and entries. ⠀ ⠀ Extraordinarily simple, versatile, effective, and p o t e n t .

Anointing Oils, Exalted Venus II, SeriesThe Fairer Benefic was conjunct the Royal Star Fomalhaut in Sphere + Sundry's Exalted Venus II election, but no formal petition was made to capture its influence. However, an infusion of blue lotus in jojoba was created following the standard fumigations and prayers, to become a subset of its own. An unreleased Oil was *also* created for Fomalhaut, which had been code named "the golden subset". I took them with me to the beach (see that write-up if you're unfamiliar) and had intended to ritually finish them there, but clear instruction never came, so they were brought back and stored alongside the rest of their brethren. Contemplating whether to add anything to the Lotus subset, the idea of co-mingling the two arose, confirmed by divination. Aphrodite was born of the sea, after all, and the mixing of salty ocean and fresh, sweet waters was a particular insight I'd gleaned on that very pilgrimage. Among many other things... Dolphin Spirit was invoked as a moderating force. The result is incredibly potent and deeply interesting, *especially* for the esoteric adepts, magical dreamers, mediums, writhers, tantrics, and sex magical practitioners among us. This is also a GREAT jump off point for anyone who has been/ is *drawn* to Fomalhaut, but afraid to dive head first into the deep end... We'll leave it at that for now, and can compare notes in the Client Community 😘 Offered in a 1/2 oz standard vial with blue lotus, seashell, and 24k gold for $91, or 10 ml flawless glide steel roller for $73$27.00 – $91.00$27.00 – $91.00

Empress (Venus in Taurus) Offerings
Anointing Oils, Empress, SeriesClassic herbal and lapidary correspondences for Venus and Luna were combined with ingredients renowned in Hoodoo and Conjure for their ability to sweeten, seduce, and open the way, fumigated and prayed over before being immersed in a 50/50 combination of organic cold pressed extra virgin olive oil and jojoba for the Empress election, mere hours following Luminous Crown. Pink and white water lily, raspberry leaf, damiana, orris root, watercress, red clover, rose hips, passionflower, pennyroyal, yarrow, vanilla bean, aloeswood, benzoin, Royal sandalwood, pink lotus stamens, eve root, deer’s tongue, jezebel root, lucky hand root, abre camino, diamond, emerald, and a touch of royal jelly — the nectar upon which the Queen bee herself feeds. Genuine 23kt red gold — an alloy of copper (Venus’ metal) and gold (the Sun’s metal) to emphasize Sol’s exaltation and rulership of the First, from the House Joy. Left to gestate for nearly a year before being decanted into glass vials on the day of Venus and offered here to you, blessed Human Spirit, for the promotion of your own interests, especially pertaining to matters of finance, career, beauty, embodiment, self-worth, self-love, and desire. Anoint to evoke a regal air, to improve posture, and promote a more commanding presence — capable, deserving, and worthy of the utmost respect. Following opening and application, one is first likely to note the oil's divine smell — as if seated near the dessert table at the Empress’ coronation, wafts of incense smoke and clean botanical waters drifting from Her lavish procession, amidst the cornucopia of rose and pink lotus bouquets upon Her distant altar. Immediately the nerves settle, and ambient anxieties dispel. Consciousness and spirit root themselves into the vessel, and we shift to a taller, more upright position. Collected, sober, and embodied — our outlooks become clearer. We are better able to sift through our desires, selecting and actualizing those which actually matter. From this empowered, competent state, we ask for what we want (and settle for nothing less). If the outside world will not give it, we become She who is capable of taking it. Draws adoration, admiration, and adulation, as well as money, gifts, and the favor of those around us — the powerful most of all. Outputs a natural gravity which inclines others to please us. Useful for those who have a tendency to martyr themselves and put others ahead of themselves and their own interests. May promote narcissism in those who are already so inclined. Magically speaking, the Empress' Oil can be used to charm and compel, to seduce, to cast and boost glamours, to increase income, to sweeten and empower reputations, to dominate, to manifest material resources, to draw power, and to promote sexual desire as in addition to social desirability. Anoint oneself, one’s partner, or toys to enhance sexual experiences. Note that sub/ dom dynamics may well be emphasized. Appropriate and well suited to wear in the workplace. This oil, unlike our other Venus series, is well suited to games of power and doesn’t resent toiling as much as most Venii, especially toward one’s own (worthy) goals. (Mars occupying its Degree of Exaltation + the House Joy certainly doesn't hurt!) Arrives in your choice of standard 1/2 oz glass vial for $84 (with an optional Dropper Cap Kit), a 10 ml precious metal rose gold roll-on for $108, or 10 ml w/ malachite rollerball for $68$68.00 – $108.00$68.00 – $108.00
Empress, Hydrosol Sprays, Series, WatersOriginally two hydrosols were planned for the Empress: a Rose Water in honor of our maiden Venus in Taurus series, in addition to a Pink and White Water Lily, chosen to represent the co-mingling of Venusian and Lunar influences imbued by this election in particular. Each was given its own copper alembic and distilled over the course of the afternoon, filled waters placed upon the altar of operation. An Empress tarot card was distilled within the Rose pot, and freshly created malachite talismans, alongside sundry herbs and woods renowned in Hoodoo and Conjure for seduction, sweetening, and the promotion of desirability, the Water Lily. Guidance was given following the Work to combine them, so only one Water results: the Rose + Pink Lotus, aquatic handmaiden of the Empress series. The result is an Imperial floral, charming and alluring, but with backbone; fresh and notably feminine, yet stoic and self-possessed. Anxieties dispel and posture improves. A sense of competence, self-respect, and Divine Order follow. Use as an aura and room spray to invoke a sense of calm and capability, while enhancing conscious awareness of the social landscape (as well as one's ability to dominate it), seduction, and the diplomatic feats necessary to achieve the objects of our desire. Feminine leadership, at its finest. Enhances desirability and the ability to take joy in harmonious sounds, striking visuals, exquisite tastes, and the most sensuous of sensations. Spray over Venus or manifestation altars. Mist sigils and vision boards for allied causes. Apply as a linen or body spray before engaging sexual activities, whether solo or partied.

Scatter in me the seeds Of a thousand saplings. Let grow a grassy heaven. On my brow: a sun. This bliss is yours, Living World, and alone it endures. Music at midnight. Young wine. Lovers hand in hand By daylight, moonlight. Living World, hold me In your mouth,
Slip on your frivolous shoes And dance with me. - excerpt from Nature Aria by Yi Lei translated by Tracy K. Smith and Changtai Bi
This is an oil that celebrates all that is fertile, rich, and bountiful - an oil of abundance and growth, of sensuality and inspiration rooted in the pleasures and joys of the natural world. It is the curl of a rose petal, the honey-gold of a sunbeam, the renewing breath of spring’s first breezes. It is the generative and propagative impulse merging with the drive to express delight through art. Bliss and gladness, pleasure and exultation. This is the joy that creates new life.
This oil is also an oil of physical beauty and charm, of self-respect and self-love. It is a glamour oil that renews and fortifies your love of yourself, your love of others, and your love of the world around you.
Fruitful Mother of Thousands also functions as a unique lust and passion blend, one rooted in sensuality, pleasure, and luxury. This oil contains organic rosehips (Rosa rubiginosa and Rosa canina), red rose petals (Rosa damascena), hydrodistilled white rose otto essential oil (Rosa alba) and Moroccan rose absolute (Rosa damascena), apple fruit compound, apple blossoms from the TAL garden (Malus domestica), frangipani absolute (Plumeria rubra), vanilla absolute and bean (Vanilla planifolia), orris butter (Iris pallida) and orris root (Iris germanica), ambrette seed (Abelmoschus moschatus) and amber oil (Oleum succini), cubeb oil and berries (Piper cubeba), Turkish bay oil (Laurus nobilis), and rose-pink vegetal musk.Arrives in an amber apothecary bottle for $45

Pink and white water lily, raspberry leaf, damiana, orris root, watercress, red clover, rosehips, passionflower, pennyroyal, yarrow, vanilla bean, aloeswood, benzoin, pink lotus stamens, eve root, deer’s tongue, jezebel root, lucky hand root, abre camino, and malachite with Royal Sandalwood.

Empress, Salves, SeriesPLEASE NOTE: This offering continues being ghost-stocked by the website, meaning despite how many times we've set it to 0 it continues resurrecting itself. The Triple Lotus Salve is *long gone* (we miss it too!). If you do check out with it, we will need to refund you because no more exist. Apologies 💓 Pink, white, and blue lotus with passionflower, valerian, and chamomile in a base of organic, cold pressed, extra virgin olive oil, aged for almost a full year, strained and co-mingled with organic beeswax, essential oils, and absolutes on the day and hour of Venus. Poured into tins and topped with genuine rose gold. This is, at first blush, a more gentle and subtle salve than the others Sphere + Sundry have to offer, with less heavy handed physical effects. It can be used at the start of the day or before stressful engagements to help anchor a sense of inner serenity and self-sustained centeredness. Promotes patience, grace, and embodiment. If applied in more liminal circumstances — such as before bed or engaging trance states — this salve possesses noticeable psychoactive and astral journeying effects, lending itself to vivid or lucid dreaming and psychic exploration, especially of a sensual and emotionally connective nature. Rub well into the base of the skull, along the neck, shoulders, and ears for this purpose, in addition to the feet, base of the spine, and heart center for more intensity. Due to its more subtle physical impact but psycho-sensorial potency, the Triple Lotus salve almost qualifies as more of a Venusian witches' flying ointment than something engaged for something as simple as better sleep or muscle relaxation. Rubbed on oneself or aided by a partner, use before sexual engagement to bring ease, desire, and promote connection. Draws the waters of the body, as the Moon does tides (lymph flowing, saliva pooling... and likely others). The scent profile remains in alignment with the rest of the Empress’ offerings — Imperial Gourmand, but in this case, with a hint of valerian musk. Each tin contains a hidden keepsake. Offered in the 2 oz size for $63, or 4 oz bulk pot for $95 Note: 100% of the Empress salves were poured at one time, so there will be no restocking of large 4 oz bulk pots. Once these are gone, they are gone forever more. Do not apply to genitalia or sensitive areas. The feet, shoulders, &c. work beautifully!$63.00 – $95.00$63.00 – $95.00
Empress, Honeys, SeriesConsecrated Empress herbal blend, made of classic herbal and lapidary correspondences for Venus and Luna. Combined with ingredients renowned in Hoodoo and Conjure for their ability to sweeten, seduce, and open the way, fumigated and prayed over before being immersed in pure unfiltered local honey, mere hours following Luminous Crown. Pink and white water lily, raspberry leaf, damiana, orris root, watercress, red clover, rosehips, passionflower, pennyroyal, yarrow, vanilla bean, aloeswood, benzoin, Royal sandalwood, pink lotus stamens, eve root, deer’s tongue, jezebel root, lucky hand root, abre camino, malachite, and a drizzle of royal jelly — the nectar upon which the Queen bee herself feeds. Genuine 23kt rose gold. I recommend that this honey be used on oneself or one’s clients, rather than to “sweeten” adversaries or other problematic contacts, since its effects are more empowering and beneficent than such operations are typically intending. Such will magnetize money and gifts, empower material manifestation, promote glamour, self-love, self-worth, and embodiment. Grace, competence, and groundedness. Aids in cultivating a regal, deserving, and empowered presence. Offered in a 2 oz glass jar for $36$36.00$36.00
Candles, Empress, SeriesVirgin beeswax dyed a sparkling peach, poured over consecrated Empress herbal mix during the height of the election. As talismanic candles tend to do, these took on the form of one of Venus’ more… iconic... associations throughout the course of their gestation. The tops were melted and each candle crowned with a drizzle of royal jelly, piece of malachite, and genuine rose gold. Burn during Venus observations, prayers, or petitions. Keep on altars for material manifestation, beauty, and self-promotion. Light in the background of photos or livestreams. Use in more traditional works of candle magic for yourself or clients. Currently offered in three varieties, with a fourth short pillar style forthcoming in a dedicated drop or next year’s Holiday Grab Bag. For now: 2 oz glass containers for $84, 8 oz slim vigils for $168, or 8 oz medium sized glass pots, also for $168$90.00 – $168.00$90.00 – $168.00

This is an oil of peace and healing; of reconciliation without surrender, of forgiveness without capitulation. It is rooted in the healing power of the natural world, and was created to assist us in moving forward from pain and trauma in wholeness and strength. It was crafted to bring comfort and emotional succor, stability, and growth through love.
Queen of the Honeyed Heart is also an oil of quiet, gentle power. It is not the red-hot conflagration of rage and desire for dominion, but power that stems from the genuine desire to care for others and create positive change in your life, your community, and the world.
Queen of the Honeyed Heart is an oil of spiritual, mental, and physical grace.
This oil contains honey absolute (Apis melliferra), Sumatran benzoin gum oleoresin and tears (Styrax benzoin), blue yarrow essential oil and herb from the TAL garden (Achillea millefolium), organic motherwort (Leonurus cardiaca), strawberry fruit compound, organic ylang ylang essential oil (Cananga odorata var. genuine), white lotus absolute (Nelumbo nucifera), pink lotus stamens (Nelumbo nucifera), organic hibiscus flowers (Hibiscus sabdariffa), and red vegetal musk.

Empress, Series, Talismans + ReliquariesClassic Picatrixian style talismans. Malachite eggs, prayed over, fumigated, and subtly etched with Venusian symbols, imagery, and glyph during the height of the Empress Election. These can serve as altar pieces or actual Yoni Eggs, if the user decides they are suitable. More information in the toggle below. IMPORTANT: Absolutely do NOT use internally if you are pregnant, or wish to become pregnant. Only 1 Malachite Empress Egg is being offered to the public, $777 [spb_blank_spacer height="30px" width="1/1" el_position="first last"] [spb_toggle title="On the potential toxicity of malachite due to copper" open="false" width="1/1" el_position="first"] Some online sources claim malachite to be toxic because of its copper content, but that primarily impacts those involved with its mining and polishing (who should always be wearing protective gear on the job). Finished malachite poses almost zero risk to the user/ wearer, save for the case of prolonged exposure to acidic environments where trace amounts of copper can be leeched, which has resulted in fear mongering around even the consumption of Moscow Mules because of lime juice in the beverage. I have yet to know a single person who has been sickened or died of Moscow Mule poisoning, or been negatively impacted by the copper leaf that features in many Venus oils and materia. Copper is considered by science not to be meaningfully absorbed through the skin (if at all), and it is an essential trace metal found in lots of foods and things we regularly consume. Malachite is featured in some online lists of Yoni Eggs to avoid due to the same issue — the presence of copper combined with the naturally acidic environment of the vagina. Copper IUDs have been used as a common contraceptive since 1967, because copper naturally inhibits how sperm cells move so they cannot reach the egg and result in pregnancy. This makes even more sense of copper as the metal of Venus, given that our Fair lady desires sex for fun, rather than procreation (that would be Luna’s purview). It is up to each individual if they feel comfortable using the Malachite Yoni Egg Talismans internally or instead keeping them as altar pieces, and I encourage everyone to perform their own research, consult a physician, and do whatever they decide is safe with their own bodies, always. Given the short period of time such an egg is likely to be inserted (especially compared to up to 12 years of 24/7 wear with a copper IUD), these concerns seem overblown to me, personally. If you are pregnant, trying to become pregnant, are sensitive to heavy metals, or have heavy metal poisoning, then do not use malachite internally. This same disclaimer/ contraindication is repeated on the Yoni Egg page. (This was only so in-depth because the issue was brought up in advance from a shared teaser, and we know how The Internet can be.) This non-controversy considered, no malachite was included in the standard 1/2 oz vial of Empress Oils, for those who still wish to avoid it. Malachite is the gem for Empress rollers. All of the malachite used in the Empress series is natural and undyed. [/spb_toggle]$777.00$777.00

Venus in Libra Offerings
2020 Holiday Grab Bag, Anointing Oils, Series, Sold Out, Venus in Libra IVenus 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
Hydrosol Sprays, Series, Sold Out, Venus in Libra I, WatersAfter 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$28.00 – $56.00$28.00 – $56.00

Each candle is about 2 ounces and provides roughly 15 hours of burn time. $84$84.00$84.00
Honeys, Series, Sold Out, Venus in Libra IHoney 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
Face + Body, Honeys, Masks + Polishes, Sold Out, Sundry, Venus in Libra IThis 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, 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

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.
