Venus Invocation Paintings

"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." - Orphic Hymn

I began 2020 as the Violet Crown Snake, holding space in ritual at the Prismic Vision 2020 event in Longmont. It is only recently that I've noticed the impact of that ritual on my life. I didn't realize that invoking the Snake, the Crown, and the resonance of Violet would open me up to a deeper connection the cosmos. Much of my year has been dedicated to learning about the Heavens; the rotations of the stars and planets, the astrology, and the great sea of mythology cloaking it all.

My first love on this new quest to learn the stars was Venus. I had known the myth of Aphrodite, born of the sea, who is the Greek Analog to the Roman Venus, and I knew vaguely that Venus ruled part of my natal astrology chart. My Venus is in Scorpio. But after an afternoon of Google searched I realized there was so much to learn about this one celestial object that has captivated the imagination of my ancestors.
