Blessed Full Moon! This one is especially powerful and grand as not only is it a Super Moon but also during the conjunction of Venus in Aries and Lilith in Pisces. I’ll share what these amazing energies mean in a moment but know that I’ll end the post with something practical you can do for those of you reading this and going “That’s great and all but what do with this information?” Been there, understand, bear with me.
Venus in Aries
Venus, the Goddess of Love and Sensuality and, yes, Magic is in fiery and aggressive sign of Aries. A great time for lust, being spontaneous (one night stand?), and enjoying yourself (hot baths are a must). Fantastic for Valentines Day/Lupercalia!
Lilith in Pisces
Lilith, aka the Dark Moon, in Pisces is all about intuition, integrating the shadow self, and not hiding your psychic abilities behind a mask of normalcy. Dive deep into the dark waters of the soul complex, don’t turn away from the skeletons lurking there but move forward to find the real treasure. Don’t give a fuck about what anyone else says about this self exploration – you don’t need their input right now.
Venus and Lilith
Independent, sexual, and soul-full Goddesses coming together in partnership. I like to imagine Venus in her spicy Aries, going out and taking no prisoners, outfit complete with the perfect wingtip eyeliner and rose-gold highlights – Lilith in psychic chic with culottes and piercings, her black hair side shaved and the rest braided in a long rope to bind the unwary and her manicure razor sharp.
In the light of the Full Super Moon in Leo – bring all those manifestations and desires and goals and dreams into the light. Show them to the Goddesses like counting beads or presenting jewels or laying out clothes to decide what to wear for a night on the town. Let them see and help you cut through the bullshit and focus on the steps to take.
Whether you see them as besties, sisters, or lovers tonight – these Goddesses demand an honoring of the femme, of independence, of empowerment, of activism with a heavy dose of self-work and growth and doing it with flare.
Now is a good time for femme activism. Think WITCH.
Make a Venus Lilith Conjunction Talisman
On a piece of paper, draw the sigils for Venus and Lilith. You can do this however you like or that looks aesthetically pleasing to you. I will be painting Venus in Inca gold and Lilith in black with acrylic paints that I have on hand.
Wrap this paper around a piece of onyx, garnet, or hematite for Lilith and a piece of copper, rose quartz, or emerald for Venus. This can also be a piece of jewelry containing these stones/minerals.
Add to the stones some dried red rose petals and mugwort. You can also burn these herbs and bath the stones in the smoke OR make an infusion of the herbs and spritz the stones and yourself with them (or add them to a bath before your working or all of the above and more depending on how elaborate you want to make the working).
Wrap the stones and herbs in the bundle and leave it so that it is present before the Full Moon. (If you have bad weather, settle for in front of a window.)
I don’t have those stones or minerals or herbs! What do I do? – Draw the sigil on paper, clay, whatever object you can keep (this type of sigil won’t keep as long but still usable in future workings). Paint it on a jar and fill with distilled or spring water and set out in the moon light. Paint it on yourself and embody those energies.
I don’t honor Venus or Lilith specifically in my practice – can I still do this? Sure. If you would like, call upon the Gods and spirits you do honor and ask them who would like to be called upon for this working such as Freya, Gullveig, Inanna, Hekate, Baphomet, and the list goes on. What femme deity with a dark side that works with love, lust, magic, etc do you connect with?
What do I do with the talisman tomorrow/in the future? Use it like a battery filled with the charge of the Venus Lilith Conjunction. Add it to activism spells, lust and glamor spells, spells and ritual for independence and empowerment, etc. If it needs a splash of strong femme energy of this nature, use it.
