Your Venus Sign: The Erotic Gifts and Secret Desires of All Twelve Venus Signs
Venus (Aphrodite), the charismatic mythical Goddess we know as The Goddess of Love, Pleasure and Erotic Happiness, has been immortalized and worshipped in art and culture. For millennia, Venus swaggered through the history books with unrivaled self-possession and sexual self-confidence, as notorious for seducing others as making her own pleasure and enjoyment, her happiness, central. Yet many women today have lost touch with the very aspects of our self she represents: joy, self-worth, sexual vitality and eroticism. Cultural messages about our bodies and worth conflict with our true feminine nature, while pressure to “find our purpose” as women has reached an all-time high, threatening to topple any chance we have at achieving true happiness.
What can the ancient Goddess share with the modern woman who wants these qualities for her self? Is reclaiming the Feminine as simple as breathing life back into the archetype of our Venus sign? Jessica Shepherd, author of A Love Alchemist’s Notebook: Magical Secrets For Drawing Your True Love Into Your Life takes you on an intimate tour of the inner world of all twelve Venus signs. Through reflecting on the astrological Venus, Jessica dusted off the decades of misunderstanding and bad programming around her femininity, and discovered why the archetypal Venus had lost her luster for many. Based on her newest book, Venus Signs: The Erotic Gifts and Secret Desires of All Twelve Venus Signs, Jessica breathes life back into the Goddess.
