Venus Swan-Image Talisman
This one of a kind piece was made in sterling silver in accordance with the image of Venus described in Agrippa From the operations of Venus they made an Image, which was available for favour, and benevolence, at the very hour it ascending into Pisces, the form of which was the Image of a woman having the head of a bird, and feet of an Eagle. Instead of a dart, I put an apple in Venus' hands in the form of a chrysolite gemstone. Chrysolite is identified as a stone of Venus.
This piece was made to an astrological election that was primarily focused on Venus in Pisces but also involved embracing the Jupiterian energy that was present due to the conjunction of Venus and Jupiter in Pisces. The election took place on 27 April 2022 at 2:46am AEST, with the moon in Pisces applying to conjoin exalted Venus on the ascendant as well as Jupiter in domicile.
Venus in her exaltation of Pisces brings out the dreamy and watery side of our Venusian goddess. Here she is right at home in her triplicity of water where she consorts with the spirits of the sea, namely Poseidon (Neptune), who before becoming god of the sea originated as a personification of the fertilising power of water. The watery influence on Venus here is amplified by Neptune being in between Venus and Jupiter, closely conjoining them both. Neptune in Modern astrology is known as the higher octave of Venus, and the modern ruler of Pisces. This modern delineation does, however, have ancient roots. Before being elevated to a celestial sphere, Neptune as god of the sea was said to be at home in the constellation of Pisces, and according to Manilius, Neptune recognises his own in the aether of Pisces.
