On November 4 Venus (retrograde, in Scorpio) becomes visible once again, as she rises with the Sun. Rising as Venus Lucifer, or Venus Morning Star, it is considered a time of resurrection as Venus leaves the darkness and sets foot into a new dawn.
During the last 8 days of her underworld journey, in order to free our self from old values and emotional sensibilities of the previous cycle (the previous 584 days) we ventured deeply within. We may've learned something uncomfortable about our self, and have to take responsibility for our increased self-knowledge- the cost for that self-knowledge may've been high. But there’s no turning back from what we know is true, now; our outlook, attitude and the way we interpret our life experiences and our world has been irrevocably changed. We’ve shed old skin. We've been transformed.
The Babylonians and Mayans considered Venus to be at her most fierce during this part of the Venus cycle. Venus morning star energy is fresh, spontaneous and eager for new experience -including new romances. She's feisty, direct - bloodthirsty even!
So how will this play out in our lives? As Venus rises again with the Sun, we directly contact the raw primal force of eros-desire, which we can intentionally use to create anew. In art, love and money, what and who we’re inspired by we now carry forward into a new cycle.
