Venus In Freedom

Filed in Venus

Wearing nothing but snakeskin
boots, I blazed a footpath, the first
radical road out of that old kingdom
toward a new unknown.
When I came to those great flaming gates
of burning gold,
I stood alone in terror at the threshold
between Paradise and Earth.
There I heard a mysterious echo:
my own voice
singing to me from across the forbidden
side. I shook awake—
at once alive in a blaze of green fire.

Let it be known: I did not fall from grace.

I leapt
to freedom.


Ansel Elkins – Autobiography Of Eve

Venus is dignified in her home galaxy of Taurus so if you are a Venus-sensitive person, cue more success in negotiations, commerce, art, romance and your personal aesthetics.

But the Love Goddess is also in aspect with asteroids Eros + Nemesis and beginning to form a profound synergy with Pluto, perfecting in the final week of June.

See your Horoscopes for more as this approaches but this is deeper than the usual Venusian vamp-off.

Think a la chthonic revelations about yourself, your sexuality and the different roles that you have played across your life narrative to date, especially around sex, money and power.

On one hand you are enjoying the basic Venus benefits of heightened appreciation of music and genius around scent or skin care. But you are also entertaining productive but confronting realizations and enjoying liberating/cathartic conversations with people you encounter via pure magical synchronicity.

  1. So Neptune goes retro and Jup goes direct this week (they both rule my 7th piscean house). And I have been told this is powerful.

    Venus in the 9th will be allied to Pluto in the 5th and also Mars in 11th will trine Nept in 7th during the last week of June.
    Very curious to see where all this stuff leads.

  2. Mystic!

    This poem gives me chills. Stops my heart.

    It’s like Ansel Elkins swept into my mind and pulled out the thoughts …

    Thank you!

  3. Just love that poem. I’ve had a fairly rough few weeks, culminating with some real emotional release late last week related to my recently-ended relationship, and what the mistreatment I endured throughout it means moving forward, and honestly, what it means I need to assess brazenly in myself (e.g. what caused me to put up with that for so long? It’s a confronting question to answer). I think I’m making some progress though – clouds starting to clear, getting a stronger conception of and connection to self etc.

    Something that helped me – I looked at the transits in my chart after the oracle told me to look at what’s going on in my 12th house, and noticed that Mars is sitting there. Explains why I’m so exhausted at the moment… Armed with that knowledge I can make the most of the downtime before things pick up in July.

  4. Venus conjunct Chiron in 10th + MC and square Mars in 6th. Yes to liberating/cathartic conversations with people, and yes to chthonic revelations about self, though much of latter is still hazy and slowly and uncomfortably coalescing. The part I’m still trying to work out is, I’ve been working so hard to make sure that I create a healthy professional work life that respects my physical and mental health needs (because I’ve never done so before) and have been working on diet and fitness etc. but then get so discouraged when a workshop I ran that got good feedback knocks my body out for the next three days (autism + chronic fatigue related). I’ve learnt my lesson (split different groups for different time zones for US and Europe, instead of trying to find a slot that works for all that is not so great for me i.e. midnight) but I guess still feel so panicky at my crash, especially when things are starting to pick up and look better and for so many long years it’s always been my physical health limitations that got in the way every time.

  5. Saturn reversing over my sun, at the same time this is happening. I’m just taking the first tentative steps of publicly living my soul purpose as messenger and door opener, but I’m also very much aware that a solid commitment to my art and poetry is required in the coming weeks. I have so much happening I can’t focus on the way I’d like to.

  6. This text, exactly , captures the theme of my thoughts and feelings since about mid may. I’m not intellectualising it or trying to slather on ideas and explanations for once. I’m kind of just letting it exist and trying it on for fit. The notion of embodiment, I think invicta was describing something similar. I used a coin toss to help me decide which city to visit recently. 3 hours before I had to leave, hahaha.
    I think I am learning how to leave myself alone but in kind ways not neglectful ways.

    • Learning to leave myself alone without being neglectful – yes! This! Had the four of cups as a final card in my full moon spread and knew it was about less introspection and less self absorption with the internal realm – so there’s some genuine resonance in this. Thank you!!

      • Thanks for that note about ,4 of cups. I’ve never quite been able to get a handle on it. To frame it as ‘a bit less introspection’ is helpful 🙂 thank you too!

      • But you’re right there is a time to ‘look up’ and it’s hard to know when, if we have been doing a lot of navel gazing!

    • I recently checked my progressed sun and it is in TAURUS pretty much until I retire lol, so all of this self-oriented slow down / body focus / less switch-board-y mindset does make sense

  7. I joined the gym this week… Realised that my emotional eating habit not only has me punishing myself mentally for being weak and greedy but it also totally has me in a state of splitting off from any feelings of sexuality because I’m just not turned on about anything when I’m in a cheese-chocolate coma. Especially not turned on by myself. So enough of that malarkey, I’ve run on the treadmill for half an hour every day this week and I think I even got a little high off exercise today. If I keep this up I might even *shudder* start wanting to go out and like, meet people (cancer ascendant running for every crack in the floorboard because it’s winter and winter is solely for hibernation and mashed potatoes)

    • oh my gosh i feel ya on the first bit about the emotional eating and downward spiral of self-loathing and un-sexiness. currently pulling myself out of that, too. it is extra frustrating for me to have been dealing with that whole scene because i LOVE exercising and being strong, and being able to brag about having practised jiu jitsu and stuff without feeling like a marshmallowy poser.

  8. Yesss to all of this. I also still have Saturn on my ascendant so that’s in play too, but it feels good, like finally let’s kick this thing’s ass once and for all. I’m determined to lose 8-10 pounds and even with Venus in “eat it all” Taurus, I think I’m finally hitting my stride. It’s all for beauty and health and self love so I think that’s why it’s working now. Not sure why I was hitting a wall with Venus in Aries but maybe because I am a Libra with Venus in Scorpio. Venus in Taurus feels like I’ve got my groove back. And anything in sync with Pluto is my jam, obviously. There’s a pic of Eve bounding joyfully away from Adam and God tied to an apple tree with a snake that I will post to the FB post of this that is a perfect visual of all this. 🙂

    • Wait, oh fuq, it’s Jupiter Direct!! That’s what I am feeling! It’s my ruling planet (Sagg ascendant) and I have it conjunct Venus in Scorpio. So Venus into Taurus and Jupiter direct are my liberation. Praise the Goddess, I’m free at last! 🙂

        • i am a sadge rising too. so happy about jupe direct. also i finally feel like i have been “embracing” the lessons of saturn on my ascendant. its trip over my lilith at 1 sag was pretty intense too but it’s all coming together. natally i am venus-jupe conjunct so also super happy about venus into toro. just a few days ago began using rosehip seed oil on my skin and it’s working out beautifully. i have an appointment to get my lashes and brows tinted in a week or so and i can’t wait to roll thru this summer with less makeup on my face!

  9. For all of you into mermaid beauty routines, I am enjoying a super gentle new face scrub made of irish moss and ground up grape seed. It stinks like the sea vomited on my face (despite essential oils) but it truly lives up to it promises on the bottle. My face feels smooth but not tore the f* up like the more harsh seed scrubs i am used to…cough…st.ives…cough. I needed a change from the microfiber cloths!

    • Hahahaha !!! This reminds me of that time I got right into superfood smoothies and was dropping marine phytoplankton in them for an extra kick. I think a similar flavour could have been achieved by having a dolphin shit in my mouth. Good times

  10. Favourite warphole ever– damn reminds of the Dorothy Parker quip “tell him i was too fuckin busy or vice a versa” so I walked to town and built the future. What I love about the whole idea of orbits and the pathways they purpose

  11. I reorganised and decluttered my pantry this morning. The old the stale the unwanted. Gone.

    • I know I need to do this. Is summonsing enough energy, from a limited pool, to do it. Does it feel good?

  12. There’s a rodoe in town tonight. I’m scared to go because I actually might meet someone. Fuq, I’m such a Crab in these matters. This stuff cruels me.
