Venus appears to move backward in the sky from the end of July through the beginning of September 2023.
During this time of roughly 40 days and 40 nights, she disappears and reemerges again in the elemental fire sign of Leo.
We, too, have the opportunity for renewal.
Venus. Aphrodite. Ishtar, Inanna. Astarte.
Terrible and powerful.
More ancient than the Olympians.
Born from the sea from passion and power.
