Venus in the Fire Signs

Venus in Aries, Aries is the symbol of the Golden Ram whose fllece Jason went on a quest for.  Why a fleece? Fleeces are connected with magic in many folk traditions. For the ancient Etruscans a gold coloured fleece was a prophecy of future prosperity for the clan. Recent discoveries about the Hittite Empire in Bronze Age Anatolia show celebrations where fleeces were hung to renew royal power. This can offer insight into Jason’s search for the fleece and Aietes’ reluctance to relinquish it. The fleece represented kinship and prosperity.  Aphrodite (Venus) in the Myth Causes Medea (daughter of the king) to fall in love with Jason.  She helps him retrieve the golden fleece and flee.  Returning to Iolkos Jason discovers that King Pelias has killed his father, and his mother has died of grief. Medea tricks Pelias by offering to rejuvenate him, and then kills him. Jason and Medea go into exile in Corinth, where Jason betrays Medea by marrying the king’s daughter. Medea takes revenge by killing her own children by Jason.  This myth shows the passion of Venus in Aries, here she wears the Golden fleece of Royal power and prosperity,  Venus in Aries is the queen of heaven and she does not take second best…

As Queen of Heaven Venus in this sign is Ishtar the goddess of love, war, fertility, and sexuality.  Venus here knows the power of her sensuality, sexuality and uses them to maximum effect.

Venus in Leo, Queen Omphale wore the skin of the Nemean Lion and carried Heracles’ olive-wood club.  Hercules became enamoured so much by Queen Omphale that he became her slave for three years.  The African queen decided it would be fun to play some cross-dressing games with Heracles. She orders him to wear women’s clothing while she struts around wearing his lion skin cape and holding his club. Apparently, this little game gets them both very excited, and soon the two are all over each other.

Venus here wears the Nemean Lion skin and is well aware of the irresistible effect it has on her lovers, As queen she holds them captive to her desires and whims.

Venus in Sagittarius

Aphrodite’s (Venus) father was (Zeus) Jupiter ruler of Sagittarius, Zeus lusted after his own daughter. Once when Venus [Aphrodite] fled like the wind from the pursuit of her lascivious father [Zeus], that she might not see an unhallowed bedfellow in her own begetter, Zeus the Father gave up the chase and left the union unattempted, because unwilling Aphrodite was too fast and he could not catch her: instead of Venus’ bed, he dropt on the ground the love-shower of seed from the generative plow. Gaia (Earth) received Jupiter’s fruitful dew, and shot up a strange-looking horned generation [the Kentauroi or Centaurs of the island of Kypros].” The Centaur is the symbol of Sagittarius.  Venus in Sagittarius represents the wild passions of Jupiter in the presence of Venus.  Venus here inspires the lusty, wild beast to emerge in their partner as well as themselves.

Earth Venus

Venus in Taurus, Taurus in ancient times was the sign of the spring equinox, Venus in this sign is the Goddess of fertility.  The Great Bull of Heaven was a phallic symbol of virility and masculinity.  In Sumerian mythology Enki gave Inanna (Venus), The art of lovemaking! The art of kissing the phallus!  Venus in Taurus is well versed in these arts.

Venus in Virgo, Virgo represents Ninlil the Sumerian cereal Goddess consort of Enlil the chief God.

n the sleeping quarters, in the flowered bed fragrant like a cedar forest, Enlil made love to his wife and took great pleasure in it. He sat her on his dais appropriate to the status of Enlil, and made the people pray to her. The lord whose statements are powerful also determined a fate for the Lady (Aruru), the woman of his favour; he gave her the name Nintur, the ‘Lady who gives birth’, the ‘Lady who spreads her knees’. (…) Proud woman, surpassing the mountains! You who always fulfil your desires—from now on, Sud, Enlil is the king and Ninlil is the queen. The goddess without name has a famous name now,

Venus in Virgo is the earthy Goddess who always fulfils desires.

Venus in Capricorn, Aegipan, literally “goat-Pan,” was a Pan who was fully goat-like, rather than half-goat and half-man. When the Olympians fled from the monstrous giant Typhoeus and hid themselves in animal form, Aegipan assumed the form of a fish-tailed goat. Later he came to the aid of Zeus in his battle with Typhoeus, by stealing back Zeus’ stolen sinews. As a reward the king of the gods placed him amongst the stars as the Constellation Capricorn.  Pan is famous for his sexual powers, and is often depicted with a phallus. Pan’s son with Aphrodite, Priapus was famous for his huge and permanently erect Phallus.

Venus in Capricorn is very erotic, beneath that respectable exterior lies a lusty satyr and knowledge of ancient erotic practices.

Air Venus

Venus in Gemini, Hermes (Mercury ruler of Gemini) and Aphrodite (Venus) gave birth to Hermaphroditus.  It was in the woods of Caria, that he encountered the nymph Salmacis, in her pool. She was overcome by lust for the boy, who was very handsome but still young, and tried to seduce him, but was rejected. When he thought her to be gone, Hermaphroditus undressed and entered the waters of the empty pool. She sprang out from behind a tree and jumped into the pool. She wrapped herself around the boy, forcibly kissing him and touching his breast. While he struggled, she called out to the gods that they should never part. Her wish was granted, and their bodies blended into one form, “a creature of both sexes”.  The union in one being of the two principles of generation and conception – denotes extensive fertilising and productive powers.  Hermaphroditus is connected to the union of marriage, and late May early June is still the most popular time to marry.    Hermaphroditus’s name is derived from those of his parents Hermes and Aphrodite. All three of these gods figure largely among erotic and fertility figures, and all possess distinctly sexual overtones. Sometimes, Hermaphroditus is referred to as Aphroditus. The phallic god Priapus was the son of Hermes in some accounts, and the youthful god of desire Eros of Hermes and Aphrodite.

Venus in Gemini symbolises the sexual union of Hermaphroditus, the Virility, fertility and eroticism of sex.  Venus here is very erotic and imaginative.

Venus in Libra, here Venus is in her own sign as she visits her daughter Harmonia.  HARMONIA was the goddess of harmony and concord. As a daughter of Aphrodite, she presided over marital harmony, soothing strife and discord; as a daughter of Ares, she represented harmonious action in war. Late Greek and Roman writers sometimes portrayed her as harmony in the more abstract sense : a deity presiding over the cosmic harmony.  Harmonia’s husband was turned into a serpent, Harmonia, in her grief stripped herself, then begged Cadmus to come to her. As she was embraced by the serpent Cadmus in a pool of wine, the gods then turned her into a serpent, unable to stand watching her in her dazed state.

Historically, serpents and snakes represent fertility or a creative life force. As snakes shed their skin, they are symbols of rebirth, transformation, immortality, and healing.

In the Abrahamic, the serpent represents sexual desire.  According to the Rabbinical tradition the serpent represents sexual passion.  In Hinduism, the Kundalini is a coiled serpent, the residual power of pure desire.

Venus in Libra represents Sensuality, desire, sexual passion, harmony and the power of love.

Venus in Aquarius, Aquarius represents the waters of Enki ‘The Great One’, this is the fertility of water(Enki’s Semen) on the land to create the fertile crescent.  Venus here is Inanna.  Enki was considered a god of life and replenishment, and was often depicted with two streams of water emanating from his shoulders, one the Tigris, the other the Euphrates. Alongside him were trees symbolising the female and male aspects of nature, each holding the female and male aspects of the ‘Life Essence’, which he, as apparent alchemist of the gods, would masterfully mix to create several beings that would live upon the face of the earth.  Enki gave the power of his Mes to Inanna which included: The art of lovemaking! The art of kissing the phallus!

Venus in Aquarius has received the powers of Enki, she is well versed in the art of love-making and kissing of the Phallus.  She understands the ‘life essence’ that flows through us all.


Water Venus

Venus in Cancer, Cancer the Crayfish or Scarab represents the womb in mythology.  Venus here represents the life giving fertility of the mother.  Dione the mother of Aphrodite, was described as “the temple associate” of Zeus at Dodona. The three old prophetesses of the shrine, known collectively as the Peleiades, were probably her priestesses. They were named “the Doves” after the sacred bird of her daughter Aphrodite–who also possessed a temple within the shrine. Dione’s Titan sisters were similarly oracular goddesses.  Dione’s name is the feminine of Zeus and it is not known whether she represents some earlier great Goddess of whom Zeus became the male version.

Venus in Cancer represents the ancient feminine energy that was worshipped throughout the earth in prehistoric times.  This Venus is aware of her place as the first Goddess, worshipped by all for her fertility, sensuality and reproductive qualities.

Venus in Scorpio. Aphrodite (Venus) ordered Eros to strike Pluto with one of his arrows so he would fall in love.  Pluto afterwards saw Persephone bathing and abducted her into the underworld to be his wife.  Demeter in Grief wandered the earth looking for her daughter.  Pluto was forced by the Olympian Gods to return Persephone but he made sure she had eaten pomegranate seeds first and had to spend half the year with him in the underworld.

Venus in Scorpio have the passion of Pluto, who was so obsessed by his love he would go to any lengths to keep her.  Venus in Scorpio is passionate, intense and deep.

Venus in Pisces, Inanna (Venus) was associated with the eastern fish of the last of the zodiacal constellations, Pisces.  Archaeologist and historian Anne O Nomis notes that Inanna’s rituals included cross-dressing of cult personnel, and rituals “imbued with pain and ecstasy, bringing about initiation and journeys of altered consciousness; punishment, moaning, ecstasy, lament and song, participants exhausting themselves with weeping and grief.”

Venus in Pisces is attracted to strong sensual experiences, where they are overwhelmed by the intensity of feeling, passion and desire.
