The Cycle of Venus


The Cycle of Venus contains a great mystery of cosmic order, harmony and beauty. Venus is the Earth's twin in space. The same size as Earth, she rotates in the opposite direction. Venus takes her name from the Roman Goddess Venus, who is also the Greek Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love. She is one and the same as Inanna, the Queen of Heaven, and the ancient Sumerian myth of the Descent of Inanna relates directly to the passage of Venus through the heavens. In astrology, Venus relates to the feminine, love, relationships, receiving, beauty, talent, money, and the principle of attraction. Her planetary opposite is Uranus whose energy repels. Venus is a personal planet and her energy affects us very strongly.

Venus has an 8 year cycle in which she traces a 5 pointed star, and an 8 pointed star between the Earth and the Sun. Her synodic cycle lasts 584 days, or approximately 19 months. During the 8 year cycle, Venus aligns with the Earth and Sun 5 times, for 5 synodic cycles, drawing the cosmic pentagram. She orbits the Sun 13 times. The octagonal cycle is created every 8 years when she returns to the same point in the sky where she began.

The Meta Goddess and the Chakra Gates

Each synodic cycle begins in a different sign, and this sign is known as the Overtone, or Meta Goddess of that Venus cycle. The signs will gradually shift after a certain number of years. During this 19 month cycle, Venus appears as the Morning Star, begins her descent into the underworld, disappears from view, and then reappears as the Evening Star and begins her ascent back to the heavens. Every month, she makes a conjunction with the Moon, and these Moon Venus conjunctions are known as the Venus Gates or Chakra Gates. So we have the journey of the Descent of Inanna, as Venus traces her beautiful pathway, allowing us to connect with the Divine Feminine and release our obstructions, going through a shamanic death and reclaiming our gifts and our sacred power.

New Venus Cycle beginning January 2022

The Capricorn Meta Goddess

Venus will begin a new synodic cycle in January as the Capricorn Meta Goddess. The Capricorn Goddess is here to help us bring order and structure into our lives. She is the one who organises, gathers together what she needs, creates foundations in the earth, and brings together her tribe.

She is the Record Keeper, Stone Woman, Crystal Woman, and Deep Earth Medicine Woman. She can help you to dig deep, and be stronger than you ever thought you could be. She will teach you to feel your backbone, and become the Mountain Goddess, mighty and immovable, drawing strength from all that is ancient and wise.

The Capricorn Goddess means business, and she will help you to organise your projects, ground them and manifest them in the earth element. She brings people together, and makes sure she has all the right ingredients to create the most beautiful dish. The fruits of her labours are nourishing and sustaining.

If you are in need of stronger structures in your life, stable foundations, and all the right elements to create your masterpiece then it's time to tune into the Capricorn Goddess.
