Intuitive Astrology: Venus Star Point August 2023

venus starpoint 2023

On August 13, 2023, retrograde Venus and the Sun will align, creating what is known as the Venus Star Point.

The merging of the Sun and Venus indicates a rebirth of Venus’s energy and her gradual emergence from an evening star to a morning star.

Under this energy, our heart may experience its own rebirth too. We may feel our heart healing wounds we never thought would leave us. We may feel ourselves opening to a greater love, or perhaps releasing blocks that prevent us from feeling the love that we are.

The merging of the Sun and Venus can also bring clarity around any issues that have been coming up for us since Venus stationed retrograde.

This year, the Venus Star Point will take place in the sign of Leo. Leo is the ruler of the heart, which means we are likely to feel a strong activation of heart-centered energies around this time.

Let’s dive deeper into the significance of the Venus Star Point and how it connects to the larger Venus Cycle:

The Rose of Venus

Venus creates a perfect five-pointed star or five-petaled rose every eight years as it orbits around the Sun. Known as the Rose of Venus or the Star of Venus, this perfect geometrical shape is a reminder of the beauty and order found in the Universe.

An 8-year cycle of Venus around the Sun from our vantage point on Earth.

To create the petals, Venus shifts between being a morning star and an evening star. This transition is marked by Venus aligning with the Sun, known as the Venus Star Point.

As Venus and the Sun come together, Venus transforms from a morning to an evening star. Venus then shifts retrograde and will align with the Sun once more to become a morning star. The cycle then repeats.

Evening sky Venus is said to help us activate feelings of self-love, self-nourishment, and to bring beauty to our inner world. Morning Sky Venus is said to help us create partnerships, connections with others, and to bring beauty to our external world.

Tracking The Rose of Venus

Each one of the petals on the Rose of Venus represents a growth point or an evolution point when it comes to love, connection, our values, and our interpretation of beauty.

The Rose of Venus takes eight years to be completed, and we can track how the formation of each petal has marked a period of maturity and ascension in our relationships and in matters relating to the heart.
