Are You A Morning Star Or An Evening Star?

Filed in D.I.Y. Astro

Peace GoddessVenus is, as you know, a planet & f.y.i. all the mountains & lakes on Venus are named after her pseudonyms; Ishtar, Cybele, Aphrodite et al. But Venus is also known as the Morning Star and the Evening Star. Her cycle is complex & intricate. She is for a while the brightest star in the evening sky & then disappears (in parallel to many a myth) for several days and then reappearing on the other side of the sky as the Morning Star a.k.a. Venus Lucifer. Lucifer being Latin for light-bearer. Venus Hesperus (spelling varies) is the Evening Star…

Some say that Morning Star Venus peeps are more passionate & impulsive whilst Evening Star Venus types are more likely to be sedate and strategic. If your Venus is at a degree earlier than your Sun, you’re a Morning Star Venus. After your Sun, you’re an Evening Star Venus. For example, if your Sun is at 25 degrees Capricorn and your Venus is 16 degrees Aquarius then you were born under Venus as the Evening Star. If your Sun is at 25 degrees Capricorn and your Venus is 5 degrees Capricorn, then you’re a Morning Star Venus & thus more Warrior-goddessy in your love & sex nature.

And yes, the cycle of Venus really DOES create a pentagram shape in the sky. Much like the Apple, when sliced in half & redolent also of the Rose.

This site here has the most exhaustive info on Venusian cycles that I think i have ever seen. They’re fascinating. A brand new Venus cycle starts in January 2010, linking back into romantic astro-weirding from Dec 2005/Jan 2006…

I’m a Hesperus Direct Venus and all that the article on Khaleda’s site says regarding that particular Venus is true for me… “Venus Evening Star direct types are inclined to evaluate and react to situations after they take place. It is not the single, isolated event she is reacting to, but to a long series of similar incidents which she has been internalizing and feeling resentful about for some time. Venus Evening Star types internalize their emotional experiences, both the pleasant and the unpleasant. So when their emotions do fully surface, they often erupt with pent-up force.

p.s.,

“Are you a Morning Star or an Evening Star?”

Was originally going to say….

Is there a difference?…..snort, sniff-sniff

Lucifer retrograde.

“Such truly avant-garde individuals may be so far ahead of their time that their true stature is recognized only after the close of an often tragic life.”

Seems I was born fighting the ties of the past. That sure fits, literally. Was expected to be stillborn – everyone was surprised when I popped out screaming – and it sometimes feels as though I’ve never stopped! Avant-guard vs taurau self esteem issues? Give me a break. Better get to grips with my venus trine uranus – it’s the only bit of good venusian news I have 🙂

That site is interesting. I’m a retrograde evening star conjunct my MC, apparently a config associated with social movements and the avant garde. One lives in hope. Maybe when Saturn is done flogging me.

A little confused but I think I’m getting it. I have Sun 21 Gem & Venus 26 Gem does that make me evening?
I still can’t get over the venus cycle linking back to Dec 05- Jan 06, definitely weird & romantic but horrible at the same time. argh!

OH BTW the pic of “venus/peaceful goddess by Shepard Fairey”
to me just screams minerva/athena goddess no?? The whole warrior goddess was a symbol of the powerful goddess. and also the owl was Minerva’s symbol — the little owl to be precise but any owl was seen as her sacred animal and gaurdian. I feel a deep spiritual connectionto this goddess i dont know why, but i wonder whether or not she has a star of asteroid that may be present on my chart????

yep, you can add in the asteroid goddesses at astro.com – for some you have to key in their individual numbers, there’s a link with the list. I think Pallas Athene, though, is with lillith and Ceres etc in one of the options fields. Take a look 🙂

my first thought too Matt. I too have a special feeling for Athena and her owls and wear a pendant with Athena on one side and her owl on the other. It’s a copy of an ancient coin.

I have Pallas/Athena on the midpoint between my Moon and Merc in 12th so it’s spiritual love thing and as an artist she’s my goddess

I’m delighted to have Venus rising just under my asc and have always considered myself to be a daughter of Venus even though she has a nasty square to Neptune in 10th. I seem to have been born knowing that I have to play it straight, no deceptions allowed but that’s probably because my Moon is exact sextile to Neptune from 12th.

and Venus is 7 degrees above my Sun so morning star. Alpha tauri’s a morning star too.

I also have venus rising, at leo 23, less than a degree before my ascendant. I also love having this placement, in what ways do you think it manifests in you?

I’ve read it gives a magnetism to the personality and appearance. I think as I become more and more grounded in my woman-ness, i feel an intense deep femininity a la women who run with wolves.

Oh, and then my sun is at virgo 10. so definitely a morning star…

oh look at that, my venus is stationary direct at 10’31 Aries – like the top point of that pentagram. I take it that the diagram is of the current stations in venus’ cycle? I recall sitting in an alchemy lesson and discussing this, including what it may portend to have Venus return so potently during this cycle. That was November ’05 and I was still rather stung by Scorpio Childhood Sweetheart. I met CUB six months later, just days after that Venus return, and my North Node return too. Karmic? Ugh, let the next cycle bring me an authentic… Read more »

are you serious, that was when most of us were up to our necks in that revolting fixed cross and getting deeper every minute…wierding? or suicide watch? (it did mean that i got out of a revolting relationship but it was still HELL)

Ack. That was the same for me UP – sheer HELL. Ended in complication Nov/Dec. Hooked back up in Jan. Over within a few weeks. Ugh. So weird to think back to that time & that 1st year was agony. Can’t believe that person was me. Never again.

Oh please say it ain’t so! – Dec 05/Jan 06 was the era of the freakazoid Saggo Iranian Jewish ex-commando descended from Moses who could fix anything with bits of string and chewing gum! I really couldn’t handle another of those. Thankfully January 2010 still falls within my year long celibacy sabbatical so hopefully I shall be safe! My Venus is almost exact at 0.09 degrees in Cancer so I must be very crablike in ye olde love life. Yup. Hang on way too long – tick. Sentimental – tick. Nurturing to the point of neglectful of self – tick.

prowln, Venus in Cancer could also mean creating harmony in a nurturing or comforting way… or magnetically attracting through excellent cooking/nest making! Do you find you express your Cancerian traits in your creative work as a designer?

Not sure nat – creatively I guess I go with the zeitgeist more than anything, though oddly enough I have worked with a disproportionate amount of food and beverage clients (without deliberately seeking them out). But I am a bit of a whizz in the kitchen and do tend to use it as a seduction tool …. hehehe 😉

I am sooo with you PC! I don’t want to revisit Dec 2005/Jan 2006 at all!! I was unceremoniously dumped by someone who was up until that moment declaring eternal love and devotion…just the week before Christmas. It felt like being ran over by a semi trailer – that I didn’t see coming. It took me AGES to get my mojo back. I remember coming home from a NYE party, three (or four) sheets to the wind and cutting all my long hair off. He loved long hair. Gave myself a sort of pixie cut. Weirdly, I got lots and… Read more »
