Venus passes the 8th Gate & enters the Underworld! The Dark Goddess has arrived…
YOU are now continuing your potent Celestial Resonance Living Light Language transformational journey with Kyrona & Venus. YOU have reached the 8th Gate of DEATH BY INTENT and are now entering the UNDERWORLD. You are entering an initiation phase where you may experience the deepest purification and “burning away” of all that is in need of release and transformation in our life! Particularly as it relates to the mysteries of the Aries ‘Wild Warrior of Love’ Goddess who is overseeing this particular cycle and her desire to bring a world out of balance, back into balance again (2017-2019)!
The journey with Venus as the Dark Goddess into the Underworld is deeply transformative for everyone and totally profound for those engaging with it consciously, especially if they are in their Venus Return year – turning 8, 16, 24, 32, 40, 48, 56, 62, 70 etc during this cycle.
So Venus as the morning star having moved through the 7th Gate of Manifestation last month (removing her Royal Robes or Garment of Ladyship – thus stripping herself of her life force energy) now moves forward by choice towards the Underworld phase of her journey. Venus’s underworld journey officially begins at the first waning Moon conjunction with Venus after her maximum elongation as the Morning Star – this moment is referred to by many as the 8th Gate ‘DEATH BY INTENT’.

1. WHAT DOES THIS LOOK LIKE IN THE SKY ABOVE?
Well as we view the morning sky above, to our eyes we have been observing Venus rising later and later OR closer and closer to dawn. Venus has not been getting high into the morning sky at all, she is ever closer to the horizon, depending on your landscape she may well not be visible at all now. As she moves to the 8th Gate, she is coming closer and closer to 10 degrees from the Sun, which means we can no longer see her in the morning sky. Most people therefore can not see Venus as she reaches the 8th Gate and soon thereafter she becomes invisible to all. She has fully entered the underworld.
2. WHAT CAN THIS FEEL LIKE IN OUR REALITY?
When Venus Disappears from the Morning Sky from our view she is considered to be “in the Underworld.” Yet she is in fact at the “Heart of the Sun” or Great Mystery, crossing behind the Sun. We can see this Underworld Initiation as being held in Great Mystery (the Sun) for the deepest purification and “burning away” of all that is in need of release and transformation in our life.
Venus Journeying through the Underworld – brings us to connect with VENUS as the Dark Goddess (goddess of a million names such as Kali, Hecate, Cerridwen, Lilith, Persephone, Fata, Morgana, Ereshkigal, Arianhrod, Durga, Inanna, Tiamat ).
So at this time with Venus entering the Underworld – we know that the time of the Dark Goddess has arrived and she is overseeing our evolution. This is especially true for those in their Syndoic personal Venus Return year ages 8, 16, 24, 32, 40, 48, 56, 62, 70 etc.
I encourage you to read THE CHARGE OF THE DARK GODDESS poem below – it really helps you attune to this energy and its evolutionary imperative.
In the Underworld Linear Rules Do Not Apply! It is worth remembering that surrender is essential, judgement is to be left at the door – for the ways of the underworld are perfect, no matter how they may present themselves, there is always a higher purpose behind them.

6. The Charge of the Dark Goddess
Wisdom and empowerment are the gifts of the Dark Goddess of Transformation. She is known to us as Kali, Hecate, Cerridwen, Lilith, Persephone, Fata, Morgana, Ereshkigal, Arianhrod, Durga, Inanna, Tiamat, and by a million, million other names:
Hear me child, and know Me for who I am. I have been with you since you were born, and I will stay with you until you return to Me at the final dusk.
I am the passionate and seductive lover who inspires the poet to dream. I am the One who calls to you at the end of your journey. After the day is done, My children find their blessed rest in my embrace.
I am the womb from which all things are born. I am the shadowy, still tomb; all things must come to Me and bare their breasts to die and be reborn to the Whole.
I am the Sorceress that will not be ruled, the Weaver of Time, the Teacher of Mysteries. I snip the threads that bring my children home to me. I slit the throats of the cruel and drink the blood of the heartless. Swallow your fear and come to me, and you will discover true beauty, strength, and courage.
I am the fury which rips the flesh from injustice. I am the glowing forge that transforms your inner demons into tools of power. Open yourself to my embrace and overcome. I am the glinting sword that protects you from harm. I am the crucible in which all the aspects of yourself merge together in a rainbow of union.
I am the velvet depths of the night sky, the swirling mists of midnight, shrouded in mystery. I am the chrysalis in which you will face that which terrifies you and from which you will blossom forth, vibrant and renewed. Seek me at the rossroads, and you shall be transformed, for once you look upon my face, there is no return.
I am the fire that kisses the shackles away. I am the cauldron in which all opposites grow to know each other in Truth. I am the web which connects all things. I am the Healer of all wounds, the Warrior who rights all wrongs in their Time. I make the weak strong. I make the arrogant humble. I raise up the oppressed and empower the disenfranchised. I am Justice tempered with Mercy.
Most importantly, child, I am you. I am part of you, and I am within you. Seek me within and without, and you will be strong. Know me. Venture into the dark so that you may awaken to Balance, Illumination, and Wholeness. Take my Love with you everywhere and find the Power within to be who you wish.
And it is so…
7. Want to go down the rabbit hole?
The summarised version of the Sumerian Telling of the Inanna Queen of Heaven Story AKA ‘The Venus Story’ as she moves into the underworld, at this time is as follows…
Venus (the Goddess Innana) as the morning star has moved through the 7th Gate of Manifestation and removed her Royal Robes or Garment of Ladyship – thus stripping Inanna of her life force energy.
Now she passes the 8th Gate of DEATH BY INTENT & surrenders to the death/rebirth process at hand by choice. So she arrives in the underworld stripped bare of all her garments/tools of protection, bare of all that no longer serves her evolution. The Gatekeeper tells Inanna: “the ways of the Underworld are Perfect!”.
Ereshkingal (her sister) now kills Inanna and hangs her corpse on a meat hook.
Ninshubar gets Enki to send two emissaries or androgynous beings called a kalatur and a kurgarra. They have been given instructions to hear Ereshkigal’s pain and name it back to her. Wisely this action heals depression, hurt and anger when we can name and witness our pain
without judgment or a need to fix, change or make it be different than what it is.
When the kalatur and karugurra witness Ereshkigal’s pain she is miraculously healed. In her gratitude she gives Inanna to Enki’s emissaries and they revive her with the water and food of life. Inanna awakes and now rises as the Evening Star. Thus Venus ‘Inanna’ begins her departure back through the seven gates as the Evening Star collecting her vestments symbolizing her renewal and rebirth.
Renewed, reborn at a higher frequency/consciousness, with new tools/garments that are suited to her new expression.
NOW Lets take a look at ‘Kali Ma’ also called the “Dark Mother,” is the Hindu goddess of creation, preservation, and destruction.
Kali-Ma is especially known in her Destroyer aspect, squatting over her dead consort, Shiva, devouring his entrails while her yoni sexually devours his lingam, penis. Kali, in this aspect is said to be “The hungry earth, which devours its own children and fattens on their corpses…” In India the experience of the Terrible Mother has been given its most grandiose form of Kali, which just is not simple imagery; it is the image of the Feminine, particularly the Maternal, for in a profound way life and birth are integrally connected to death and destruction.
Kali serves as the archetypal image of the birth-and-death Mother, simultaneously the womb and tomb, giver of life as well as the devourer of her children: the identical image was portrayed in a thousand ancient religions. Current psychologists face this image with an uneasy acknowledgement of its power. Apparently the image of the angry, punishing, castrating Father seems less threatening than the destructive Mother–perhaps because she symbolized the inexorable reality of death, whereas he only postulated a problematic post-mortem judgment. Perhaps this is one reason the Roman Catholics maintain the teaching of purgatory, to divert the final end.
The full importance of the profound meaning of the functions of Kali as the live-giver, preserver, and destroyer have been dismissed or destroyed over the centuries, as have been the aspects of other manifestations of the goddess. Many western interpretations of Kali in art and literature just depict the destructive aspect of this goddess, which tend to portray her as fearsome and evil. In the London Museum is an image of her which is labeled “Kali-Destroying Demon.” The Encyclopedia Britannica devotes five columns to the Christian interpretation of the Logos and dismisses Kali’s part in the creation of the world. This deity is mentioned in a brief paragraph as the consort of Shiva, and “a goddess of disease.”
In Hinduism Kali’s three functions are assigned to the gods: Brahma, the creator; Vishnu, the preserver; and Shiva, the destroyer. It is noted that Vishnu, who is thought to have brought the world out of the primal abyss, wrote the following about Kali: “Maternal cause of all change, manifestation, and destruction…the whole Universe rests upon Her, rises out of Her and melts into Her. From Her crystallized the original elements and qualities which construct the apparent world. She is both mother and grave… The gods themselves are merely constructs out of Her maternal substance, which is both consciousness and potential joy.”
As a Mother, Kali was called Treasure-House of Compassion (karuna), Giver of Life to the World, the Life of all lives. Despite the popular western belief that she is just a Goddess of destruction, she is the fount of every kind of love, which flows into the world through women, her agents on earth. Thus, it is said of a male worshipper of Kali, “bows down at the feet of women,” regarding them as his rightful teachers.
Some say the name Eve perhaps originated from Kali’s leva or Jiva, the primordial female principle of manifestation; she gave birth to her “first manifested form” and called him Idam (Adam). She also bore the same title given to Eve in the Old Testament: Mother of All Living (Jaganmata).
Although referred to as “the One,” Kali was always a trinity Goddess: Virgin, Mother, and Crone. This triad formed perhaps nine or ten millennia ago has been manifested in many cultures: the Celts with their triple Morrigan, the Greeks with their triple Moerae, the Norsemen with their Norms, the Romans with their Fates and triadic Uni (Juno), the Egyptians with their triple Mut, and the Arabian Moon-goddess. Kali can be identified everywhere. Her trinity is recognized in the Christian triple Godhead; some conclude this Godhead is all male, not nothing that in the Hebrew Old Testament the word for Spirit, ruwach, was of feminine gender.
Blood sacrifice was important in the worship of Kali as they were in the worship of the early Biblical God, the commanded that the blood must be poured on his alters (Exodus 29:16) for the remission of sins (Numbers 18:9), but there were differences. Jewish priests ate the sacrificial meat themselves whereas the devotees of Kali were permitted to eat their own offerings as in Calcutta. Kali demanded only male animals be sacrificed; a custom dating back to the primitive belief that the male had no part in the cycle of generation. The god Shiva, Kali’s sacrificial spouse, commanded that female animals must not be slain on the altar.
Kali was the Ocean of Blood at the beginning of the world; she might be said to be the primordial mass from which all life arouse; and her ultimate destruction of the universe is prefigured by the destruction of each individual, though her karmic wheel always brought reincarnation. After death came nothing-at-all, which Tantric sages called the third of three states of being; to experience it was like the experience of Dreamless Sleep. This state was also called “the Generative Womb of All, the Beginning and End of Beings.” Kali devoured Time, she resumed her “dark formlessness,” which appeared in all myths of before-creation and after-doomsday as elemental Chaos.
The Tantric worshippers of Kali readily acknowledged and accepted her Curse; they willing accepted her terror of death as well as they accepted her beautiful, nurturing, maternal aspect. They knew the coin of life has two sides, life and death; one cannot exist without the other. Kali’s sages communed with her in the grisly atmosphere of the cremation ground, to become familiar with the images of death. Her devotee would say, “His Goddess, his loving Mother, in time who gives him birth and loves him in the flesh, she also destroys him in the flesh. His image of Her is incomplete if he does not know her as his tearer and devourer.”
The name Kali Ma comes from Kalma, a hunter of tombs and eater of the dead, as she was called in Finland, also called the Black Goddess. European “witches” worshipped her in funeral places, for the same reasons, that the Tantric yogis and dakinis worshipped her in cremation grounds, as Smashana-Kali, Lady of the Dead. Former pagans adored her in cemeteries as the Black Mother Earth, where the Roman tombstones invoked her with the phrase Mater genuit, Mother receipt-the Mother bore me, the Mother took me back.
Sometimes Kali, the Destroyer, wore red symbolizing the blood of the life that that she gave and took back: “as She devours all existence, as She chews all things existing with Her fierce teeth, therefore a mass of blood is imagined to be the apparel of the Queen of the Gods at the final dissolution.” The gypsies in their worship of Kali, the Goddess of disease, clothed her in red, the proper color of gypsy funerals.
