♀♌ Venus in Leo ♀♌ : Lavender, Rose Geranium & Tangerine
This is an all-natural soy wax candle in an 8-ounce travel tin, which comes with a lid. Each hand-poured ritual candle is made using principles of eclectic green magick, astrology, divination, and aromatherapy. It is made with pure essential oils and natural wicks that are lead and zinc free.
The limited Venus in Leo candle series corresponds to The Empress and Lust/Strength/Fortitude cards in the Major Arcana of the Tarot. The electional chart was chosen for a time when there was a Mutual Reception between Venus in Leo and the Sun in Libra. Mutual Reception allows the planets to benefit each other, as if staying in each other’s homes in an exchange of places. Venus is thus brightened by the sign of the Sun’s rulership in bold, charismatic Leo, while the Sun receives the traits of Venus’s home sign of Libra, associated with the arts, beauty, and collaboration.
From Anthologies, Book 1 by Vettius Valens:
Leo is masculine, the house of the sun, free, fiery, temperate, intellectual, kingly, stable, noble, upward-trending, changeable, solid, governing, civic, imperious, irascible.
Libra is the house of Venus, masculine, equinoctial, anthropomorphic, upward-trending, airy, feminizing, vocal, noble, changeable, a diminisher of estates, the Lower Midheaven of the universe, public, ecliptic, the supervisor of crops, vineyards, olive groves, aromatics, homesteads, measures, and artisans.
Venus and the Sun are in harmony, glorious, bestowers of good. They cause the association of male and female, they bring gifts and conveyances, and make men successful in their enterprises. Occasionally they make those men who take on popular leadership or trusts, those who are in charge of foreign/secure places, those thought worthy of stipends. These men, however, are not without grief with respect to wife and children, especially if Venus is setting.
