Join Astrologer Leah Samuels and Community Herbalist Brittany Drinnon to discuss the Venus archetype and enhance your self-love practice and rituals. In the cosmos, Venus forms a pentagram pattern in the sky, solidifying its connection to witchcraft and love magic. Venus assists in ushering sweetness into your life, and can offer support during times of heartache or grief. From how Venus expresses in your astrology chart, to herbal medicine, and offerings on your altar, this class provides tangible ways to help you form a relationship with the planet of love, worthiness, and pleasure.
Herbs and plants have a strong connection with Venus and its many facets. Generally associated but not limited to beauty, Venus has a rather expansive archive of herbs for; the heart, euphoria, pleasure, happiness and of course love in all forms. Many of these plants can also be key ingredients for rituals around Venus and it’s stature in all traditions. We will discuss this material as well as make your very own love potion! All supplies will be provided and are included in the price of your ticket.
