A Spell to Begin a Relationship With Venus


Using Fire Magic is a beautiful way to bring a spell to life, especially when inviting in something new- like a relationship with Venus. This is a spell that stimulates the senses. You can See the light emanating from the candle, you can Hear the candle flickering as the wick burns, you can Smell the scent of herbs catching light as they burn, and you can Feel the warmth of the candle as your spell is cast and put out into the Universe. The candle becomes an extension of the self and the intention you're setting. It becomes a beautiful life of its own that is passionate about bringing your spell to life.


What you'll need:


Begin your spell by cleansing your space and the tools you'll be using. You can cleanse your space by burning copal incense, or cleansing your area with moon water. Once your space is cleansed, dress your candle a carrier oil- you'll only need a few drops of oil to fully coat the candle. Coat the entire candle, but be careful not to get the wick. This oil will allow you to further dress your candle with herbs, inviting in connection with your intentions. As you massage the oil onto the candle, imagine that this oil is reaching out to the energy you are intending your spell to carry out. This candle is already a vessel for your magic, and it is excited to work with you.


Once you have finished, sprinkle the herbs onto your candle. Begin with Dandelion Root to invite in growth as you begin working with your Venus sign. Next, sprinkle Rose Hips onto your candle to embody the loving and optimistic energy of Venus. Imagine your heart opening up, ready to receive. Now, sprinkle Skullcap onto your candle to deepen your connection with your Venus sign.


Now that you have finished adorning your candle, place it safely in a candle holder and find a tool you regularly adorn yourself with that you feel excited about channeling this magic into. This could be jewelry, make up, or skin care products. Once your have found the tools you'd like to charge with your Venus magic, place them beside your candle, and speak these words.


"I am ready to deepen my relationship with my ____ Venus. "


and light your candle to complete the spell. Sit with the flame and watch it flicker and dance, and notice what sensations come up for you. Try not to pass judgement, simply notice. Your connection to yourself and your pleasure, your Venusian joy, is the fiber of what makes you a Hot Witch, and you get to craft that experience to be exactly what you want it to be.

You are that Hot Witch.

When the candle has burned through, or you have a feeling of completion (whichever comes first), make sure the flame is completely out. Breathe deeply and connect back to your body. Wiggle your toes, wiggle your fingers. Wrap your arms around yourself in a warm embrace if that feels supportive.


As you explore your relationship with your Venus sign, remember that this journey is deeply personal and can be honored in many ways. Give yourself permission to fully submerge in your Venusian energy in a way that feels joyful to you. Venus represents partnership, and you are the partner that they want to build with. Venus is a guide to the parts of you that seek out and experience pleasure and glimmers. How are you showing up for these parts of you? Are you noticing that you've been embodying your Venus sign already without even realizing it? Celebrate the ways you've already been taking care of yourself, and write a permission slip to experience even more pleasure. You're a hot witch and your Venus sign knows it!
