Venus has been associated with the Goddess for thousands of years.

In the Temple of Venus Revolution, we align with Venus’ cycle and draw on her power as an ally in dismantling the patriarchy and priestessing a new paradigm.

Venus Revolution Immersion: Ascent of the Warrior Goddess

Join Emily, Kristine & Cindy on this 8-month revolutionary journey into the Venusian mysteries, March 16 to October 23, 2018 – registration opens March 6!

all women are welcome, at all levels of astro-knowledge (including beginners)

Get a taste of the Venus Revolution

In this one-hour call, recorded on March 7th, you’ll receive an overview of the Venus in Aries cycle, learn what it means that Venus is transitioning out of the Underworld, and get guidance for co-creating with Venus during her 8-month Evening Star phase.

Ascent of the Warrior Goddess: Venus Returns As An Evening Star

On March 31st, 2017, Venus started a new 19-month cycle in Aries, the Warrior Goddess. This will be the last Venus in Aries cycle in our lifetimes!

The fierce feminine is on the rise.

We’ve seen evidence of this Aries Venus cycle in the revolutionary MeToo movement, and in the immense popularity and cultural resonance of the movie Wonder Woman.

We’re being called to stand up and say NO to the violation and desecration of women, of the Earth, and all her inhabitants. We’re being called to take the lead in pioneering a new reality that honors ALL life. We’re being called into our courage, our commitment and our dedication.

In this Immersion, we’ll cultivate a direct connection with Venus to empower our own fierceness, passion and creativity.

It’s time, Sisters. What the world needs now is women standing in our power, a revolution of love in action.


“I have journeyed in this Venusian Temple this past year and it has been like taking a long dip in a magical healing pond. It has been truly life changing. I love and honor and celebrate myself as a woman, and all women, as never before.”

Venus-Inanna Rises from the Underworld


The story of the ancient Sumerian goddess Inanna, Queen of Heaven and Earth, directly mirrors the astronomical cycle of Venus.

From April to November, 2017, Venus-Inanna descended into the Underworld – a time of dismantling blocks to personal power.

Venus will return from the Underworld on March 4th, when She reappears as an Evening Star. For the next 8 months, Venus will grow higher and brighter in the sky, a phase of empowering the Aries Warrior Goddess.

As Venus-Inanna rises from the Underworld, she passes through seven Gates (Venus-Moon conjunctions), correlating with the seven chakras. At each Gate, She regains a vestment that was surrendered in Her descent.

In this Immersion, we’ll work with the Gates as portals of initiation to empower our own expression of the fierce feminine. We’ll explore the planets and feminine archetypes associated with each chakra (energy center).

You’ll receive in-depth Venusian astro-wisdom, as well as an understanding of the energy system as it specifically applies to women’s bodies, conditioning and history. You’ll also receive suggestions for working with Venus at home – altars, rituals, and other practices.

“I love these immersions! The sisterhood, the education, the wisdom, the guidance, etc. is amazingly powerful, inspirational, and grounding. It is unlike anything else I’ve experienced but it’s something I have craved.”

During our 8 months together, you will:


  • deepen and expand your understanding of the feminine through the lens of Venusian astrology, energy anatomy, mythology, history and culture;
  • learn astrology as a feminine art and practice, in a unique, fun and experiential way;
  • receive support for dismantling your “inner patriarchy” and activating your Warrior Goddess.


All women are welcome, at all levels of astro-knowledge (including beginners)

Option 2: Venus Immersion Deep Dive, with Kristine & Cindy (includes Option 1, calls with Emily + Gate handouts)


For women who want to learn more and go deeper, join Cindy and Kristine for mid-cycle Venusian gatherings. We’ll discuss the themes of each Venus Gate, learn how these themes reside in our bodies, and share ways to honor Venus through ritual.

In addition to sharing and discussion, in each session we’ll work with an example chart from the group and learn how to find each Gate in our own charts, and what that means. All levels of astro-experience welcome, including beginners!

This group will meet by Zoom (video conferencing), so we can all see and hear each other, and easily look at charts together. You’ll also have the option to participation in a “secret” Facebook group to connect and share with other Venusian Revolutionaries.


In each Deep Dive session we will:

  • discuss the themes at each Gate as Venus rises from the Underworld;
  • explore how these themes reside in our energy body and experience the ascent as it rises through our chakra system;
  • learn how to connect to Venus as she rises, and grow our connection with her;

Your Venusian Guides

Emily is High Priestess of the Venus Revolution, serving as a translator and voice for Venus.

When I heard the call of the reemerging Divine Feminine, I chose Venus as my starting point for getting to know the Goddess. My research has ranged from scholarly to up-close-and-personal, and has included diverse sources – historical, fictional, channeled, mythological and experiential.

The Venus Revolution grew out of my research and supports women to uncover, remember and embody their Goddess selves.

Early on, Mary Magdalene appeared as a guide to support my Venus project. I uncovered explicit links between Venus and Christianity’s “hidden goddess,” and you can read my findings in the article: “Venus, Mary Magdalene and the Reemerging Sacred Feminine.”

Kristine Backes

I am a teacher, healer, astrologer and writer who left a decades-long corporate communications career in 2010 in search of freedom. In the course of the next seven years I deepened my knowledge and practice of yoga; immersed myself it its sister science of Ayurveda; learned Reiki energy healing; and uncovered a deep intuition about astrology I did not know I had.

I also became intimate with myself, my soul, and my feminine nature. My education included two journeys to India followed by several years as a partner in a natural health clinic in Portland. I then returned to Montana and my original teacher, the mountains.

My soul’s passion is showing people how to listen to their own innate wisdom by moving in closer harmony with the natural world and its rhythms. I am a registered yoga teacher, certified Reiki practitioner and hold a master’s degree in organizational leadership.

Cindy Stockdale

My passion in life is to explore the great mystery and to connect deeply with others. These desires have led me to degrees in Psychology and Archaeology as well as in-depth study of yoga, nutrition and most recently Shamanism and Astrology.

I have been teaching yoga for over 12 years and exploring Shamanism for over 10. These mystery schools are essentially journeys of remembering; there is a call that is answered and through practice an incredible truth is revealed and ultimately the remembrance of unity, wholeness and love.

My call is to create a strong, loving space for others so that they may unveil their deepest truths and then reflect these back to them so they may rise. I love understanding how Astrology, ancestry and the soul’s purpose all interact with one another to create the stage for which this takes place and am honoured and humbled to bear witness to this inner unfolding.
