VENUS INCANTATIO is an exploration into the esoteric side of the planet Venus and the symbolism of the planet in occultism and mysticism; nymphs, white witches and poison apples. Allure is both a physical interaction and a magnetic spell. Its non physical side can be used as black magic and manipulation to enforce or manifest connection beyond the sovereign physical state. The point at which the beauty of illusion becomes delusion and the neglect of the real into psychosis, trickery and the misuse of divine magic for self attainment.
VENUS RITUS +
VENUS RITUS was written in deep shadows of codependency and lust, reaching for a higher state of being, of loving and sonically reflecting the suffocating and dense atmosphere of the planet of love, Venus. Love in its positive is liberating, in its negative and lustful state is intoxicating and suffocating. I wanted to capture this polarity, as I went through my own journey to alchemise my lustful desires into self love, forgiveness and acceptance. Exploring the divine beauty of feminine physicality, connected to the archetypes of Aphrodite, Madonna etc and connecting these to the planet and its reference to the physical female body.
