venus bathing

It has been requested, so here is how I made my Aphrodite Bath!

  • Fake flowers, hung from the shower rod with white yarn
  • Small dollar store dishes with gold jewelry
  • Tea candles with Love Salt* sprinkled on them
  • Pink, white and gold candles (I found the shell candle at the dollar store)
  • A perfume I like (Beyonce’s Heat Wild Orchid)
  • A seashell holding Love Salt* and a gold ring
  • Seashell candles sitting on a bed of pearl bracelets (These are on the shelf but are hidden behind a flower)
  • A pink bath bomb from Lush (I don’t know which one)
  • Red rose petals

*Love Salt: ground coarse sea salt and dried red rose petals

anonymous asked:

Do you have any ideas on offerings to give to Venus? This retrograde is causing me issues

  • crystals - emerald, jade, rose quartz, celestite, turquoise, peridot, malachite, sodalite, coral
  • burn a blend of herbs - apple, bergamot, cashew, daffodil, daisy, damiana, geranium, goldenrod, hibiscus, larkspur, lavender, lemon verbena, lilac, passion flower, peach, plantain, primrose, raspberry, rose, spearmint, strawberry, tansy, thyme, vanilla, violet, yarrow, ylang ylang
  • burn a candle or incense made from of one of the herbs listed above
  • actions - do something nice for someone
  • other - set out some pretty flowers, trinkets, or jewelry; make an altar and dedicate it to venus; draw a picture of venus and set it on the aformentioned altar; dedicate your bath to venus
“Bathe me in Love” spell

A bath spell that takes the love that’s all around you and pours it out for you to soak up.

To be done on a Friday

Into a paper coffee filter, place the following:



rose leaves

dried lemon peel

Tie the bundle off with pink embroidery floss, knotting it nine times. Anoint the bundle with an oil that contains at least one of the following:  rose, yarrow, cardamom, strawberry, saffron, sandalwood, vanilla (I used BPAL’s Jezebel). Dedicate it to a love deity/spirit of your choice, or to the greatest good of the universe (if you don’t work with spirits or deities).

Get the water running in the tub, and add some lavender oil and a little splash of vanilla extract. Place the bundle in the tub. You can add some pink, green or blue food coloring to the bath as well, for extra Venus energy.

Enjoy your bath, and observe how the love feels. Let it in, and let it wash away your pain and darkness. You are so loved.

I was more than ever enraptured when I saw her again. Elizabeth was sitting at breakfast, whilst her hair-dresser arranged her hair. She was too beautiful for words, at least I thought so, and indeed the Empress, then in the height of her beauty, was a lovely picture. A négligee of exquisite lace enveloped her slender figure, and her wonderful hair, which I saw for the first time unbound, flowed around her in heavy chestnut waves. Her inscrutable eyes were of a deep amber flecked with gold, and the searching daylight discovered no flaw in her. Elizabeth seemed a daughter of sun and fire as she sat there in the golden glow which intensified her loveliness and her strange ethereal look.
