Eighth Ray Flower of Venus Ritual©
Use the Eighth Ray Flower of Venus Ritual© when you want to perform a formal ritual ceremony that fully powers up your alchemical focus and story. The Flower of Venus Ritual links you in to the sacred cycles and ancient power of the planet Venus, known by the ancients as the 'radiant queen of the sky'. It is perfect to use when you have time and sacred space for a more formal ritualised method of working with an alchemical ritual. While this particular ritual is ideally carried out with eight steps it is also designed to be conducted using a five-step ritual process shown below. For the full eight-step ritual process please see the book Eighth Ray Magic The Magic of the Goddess - The Magic of Co-Creation
TO BEGIN: Establish your specific alchemical or magical focus, objective or your alchemical story and choose a Porta Alchémica® planetary, zodiacal and mansion of life elixir that correlates with your alchemical or magical objective. If possible use a specially dedicated chalice, goblet or bowl for this ritual. Put a small amount of pure water in your chalice. You can add any Porta Alchémica® ritual incenses to your ritual, if you wish. Make sure the charcoal tablet is glowing and ready in the incense burner before you add the incense. Put a pinch of your selected ritual incense on the glowing charcoal before you begin the ritual.
STEP ONE: ANOINTING OIL Select the Porta Alchémica® planetary and zodiacal anointing oils that correlate to the planet and zodiacal sign you are working with. Place three drops of each of the anointing oils in a triangle pattern on your inner wrist. Using your index finger touch the anointing oil on your left wrist and anoint your third eye between the eyebrows with the figure of the lemniscate which is a figure eight on its side. Then rub your wrists together in a figure eight motion and inhale the fragrance deeply three times.Say,
“I attune to the magical frequency of __________”
(enter the names of the anointing oils you are working with)
STEP TWO: PLANETARY ELIXIR Place three drops in a triangular pattern of the Porta Alchémica® planetary elixir you are working with into the water in the chalice. Start at the apex of the triangle with one drop of planetary elixir then at each of the other two points of the triangle.
As you do so say silently or out loud,
“I call upon the power, intelligence and purposeful action of the planet _______”
(enter the name of the planet you have chosen which is the planetary energy you wish to invite into your life.)
STEP THREE: ZODICAL ELIXIR Repeat as above for selected Porta Alchémica® zodiacal elixir you have chosen and say silently or out loud,
“. . . to express powerfully, intelligently and purposefully through the zodiacal sign of ______”
(enter the name of the zodiacal sign you have selected which is the zodiacal energy you wish to express in your life.)
STEP FOUR: MANSIONS OF LIFE ELIXIR Repeat as above for selected Porta Alchémica® mansions of life elixir you have chosen and say silently or out loud,
“. . . and manifest powerfully, intelligently and purposefully in the ______ mansion of my life.”
(enter the number of the mansion of life you have selected which is the mansion of life you wish the energy to manifest in your life.)
Then place your hands in a triangular shape, thumb to thumb, index finger to index finger over the top of the chalice. Blow through the triangle onto the water and then say,
“The sacred alchemical rose flowers within the chalice of my being.”
Slowly drink the potentised water in your chalice that has alchemically transformed to now become an alchemical Flower of Venus ritual libation.
STEP FIVE: AURA MIST Spray the Porta Alchémica® Alchemist Aura Mist three times in the shape of a triangle: above the head, then above the right and then left shoulder to lock in your intent and seal the aura to hermetically contain the energies and powers you wish to express and make manifest. Then say decisively and forcefully,
Your ritual is complete.
Note: The First Light Porta Alchémica® Alchemist Aura Mist can be used by itself at anytime when you are wanting to seal your aura and create sacred inner space. The First Light Porta Alchémica® Alchemist Aura Mist acts to create the rosarium, the sacred rose garden of the alchemist. It creates the purified holy place wherein the alchemist can contemplate and work with the energies now contained in the alembic.
