Night of Venus

Friday. Venus.

Friday candle offering; honey comb and osmanthus flower, honey powder and gold

"Seek from Venus all things that pertain to her such as petitions of women, boys, and girls, daughters and generally everything pertaining to the love of women and carnal copulation with them, art, vocal and instrumental music, telling jokes, and all those who give themselves over to worldly pleasures, those who engage in vices, male and female servants, brides and grooms, mothers, friends, sisters, and all those similar to them, and in these petitions you may also help yourself with Mars."-The Picatrix

"No sooner does she catch sight of some young man of attractive appearance than she is consumed by his charm and immediately directs her eye and her desire at him.  She...attacks his soul an binds him with everlasting shackles of passionate love.. and I advise you to beware of her, for she is always on fire, and you are quite young and handsome enough to suit her."- Metamorphoses 

"Witches are much sought after in affairs of the affections between lovers, and between husbands and wives, and to restore love between parents and children."- Italian and Neapolitan Charms and Witchcraft (folklore history series)

The sigil of erotic philters and those who work the red green arts (green alchemy and magic in Venus' Garden)

"Since ancient times, people have searched for things that can do what otherwise only the goddess of Love herself was capable of doing; beget love where none exists, kindle carnal desires where there is only weariness, provide physical enjoyment instead of  boredom, and initiate erotic adventure where there is otherwise only a lack of fantasy."- Christian Ratsch, Plants of Love

"Often dismissed by the vulgar as a crude or base form of folk magic the love-charm is a complex weaving of powers requiring great care, skill and discernment."- D.A Schulke

"All witchcraft comes from carnal lust, which is in women insatiable. See Proverbs XXX: There are three things satisfied, yea, a fourth thing which says not, it is enough; that is the mouth of the womb. Wherefore the sake of fulfilling their lusts they consort even with devils."- Malleus Malificarum
