Dies Veneris means “day of Venus,” which is Friday. Venus is the Roman goddess of love, beauty, and victory. She’s a self-possessed and sensual goddess. Today is a good day to do a ritual in her honor.
Begin by taking off your clothes. Light a pink floral-scented candle in a holder.
Into a cup of coarse sea salt, crumble the petals of a single pink or red rose. Say:
In honor of Venus.
Sprinkle the sea salt mixture in the tub. Draw a hot bath and swirl the mixture to dissolve.
Take a clamshell-shaped soap and natural sponge into the tub. Recite:
I conjure Venus.
Rub soap on the sponge and wet it to create a lather. Cleanse your body. Say:
May I learn from the love magick,
Bathe in the light and warmth of the candle. See what messages Venus brings forth for you.
