Women, are you ready to release any blocks to your profoundly joyous sage self?

“What an amazing body of knowledge and self inquiry you have put together….I bow in Namaste.” ~Arianna

Join us for a ceremonial journey with the Sacred Feminine within and without. By following the path of Venus through the morning sky, we empower the Divine Feminine within. Venus represents the revered Feminine and your personal Venus sign shows which aspect of that powerful Feminine you have come in to discover and share with the world.

Let’s reconnect to our lost ancestral practices by consciously communing with Venus, her beautiful journey through the morning sky and our sacredness within.

We traverse the journey following the first written story we have, from ancient Sumerian clay tablets, of the Goddess Inanna. This “myth” tells the honored passage of Venus through the sky as a path to reclaiming our Divine Power through a descent and ascent through the seven chakras.

Clearing out what no longer serves you and stepping into your true authentic Self.

The Sacred Feminine is coming back online. We see and feel it all around us. Your Venus sign gives clues as to how you will help usher this powerful energy back into the world. Are you the Aquarius version? Or Capricorn? Aries?

It is our time, magic makers, wise ones, grand conspirators in living the New Earth story worthy of the very best and brightest in us. Forging the NEW world that works in ways that are sustainable and get the best results for the well-being and fulfillment ALL life.

This is what we were born for!!

I cannot express just with words how healing, nourishing, and supportive for my personal and spiritual growth the Venus Alchemy community has been for me 

My wish is that you both receive with great abundance in your own lives all the beautiful Blessings that you are giving so generously and wisely to the world 💖 Sonia

On January 15, 2022 beautiful Morning Star Venus will rise in Capricorn, heralding the arrival of the Wise Grandmother Goddess, known in her many names as Akka (Finish) Baba Yaga (Russian) and Cailleach (Celtic).

Since 2014, Venus Alchemy has been guiding women and men through Venus Cycles, via the re-enactment of the Inanna Journey Initiation of Descent (morning star) and Ascent (evening star). We are excited and delighted to engage this new Capricorn Venus Cycle where Venus Alchemy began, eight-years ago – meaning Venus Alchemy is having its own first Venus Return!

This journey facilitates the reawakening and remembering of the Grandmother Wisdom and deep love that lives within each of us.

The Grandmothers are helping us to Implement and LIVE the in the NEW Earth Story through their wise ways that provide practical, brilliantly useful and sustainable structures where we all come together and benefit the health and well-being of our beautiful planet and each other.

The Grandmothers listen to the wisdom of the Starry Realms and then they joyfully share that wisdom with us. These wisdom-keepers are helping us know and embrace how we can easily live in joyous harmony with one another guiding us to sing the new earth into being through what we are feeling, thinking, saying and doing.


For us to gather and remember we are the ones we have been waiting for. We are the wisdom keepers of the new earth. We know how to facilitate and celebrate these changes now and for the future generations.

You are invited to join Cayelin Castell and Sheridan Semple (with guest appearances from Tami Brunk) and the ever-growing Venus Alchemy community on a guided journey through the Capricorn Venus Cycle, a profound initiation of ascent and renewal into the wisely, playful creational realms.

“Here is a shout out to both Tami and Cayelin for this extraordinary Venus journey and the incredibly provocative content, questions, and home play for this course!!!! It has been and will continue to be transformational for me!!! And thank you to all the participants whose collective energy and intentions has made this such a magical journey!”  ~ Lorrie M

“I am so grateful I gave myself this gift of doing this Venus journey with you during my Venus Return. I have just signed up for the Evening Star Journey too and am so excited. This has been such an amazing life changing experience for me.”  ~ Amy

“AMAZING CALL!! I feel invigorated!! Thank you Cayelin and Tami for sharing and embodying this beautiful sacred work and journey!! I look forward to implementing these tools as part of my daily practice. Sending so much love and blessings!!”  ~ Shelley

The tale of the Sumerian Goddess Inanna is literally patterned after the Venus Cycle and over the course of this Morning Star Venus Series you will experience a rare opportunity to recreate this sacred ceremony in your own life.

Venus rises as Morning Star, closest to Vega in 104 years, on January 15 and completes her Morning Star Journey in September. This is when she begins her underworld initiation. She rises as Evening Star in December and finishes her Capricorn journey in August, 2023.

Ancient cultures enacted the Venus Cycle via the mythic story of Inanna’s Descent into and Ascent from the underworld ceremonially because they knew the power of group intent.

“We are all in this together. It is a trying yet promising time in the world. Women joining hearts is a powerful force of beauty. I’ve had a lot of wounding from women in my life. This strong, beautiful circle is offering such healing of old wounds. Surely, the divine feminine energy from our collective is radiating to others as we each move about in our daily lives.”  ~ Alisé A

“I am so glad I am taking this course and am in this community. It probably has saved my sanity and brought me such pleasure in learning the story of Inanna. Having this teaching has made the journey into the underworld through the chakras so rich. I have so loved what you have shared here…”  ~ Adele Michal

Morning Star Venus Online Series

January 15 – August 21, Venus is in her Morning Star Descent Phase descending through Inanna’s Seven Chakra Gates (plus an 8th death by intent gate ) releasing all that blocks her from healthy expressions of empowerment, embodiment and wisdom. 

At each gate you will experience in depth experiential tools, including guided journeys, star maps, home play, chakra meditations and invocations, that reveal the hidden mysteries of this initiatory ascent journey as Venus/Inanna releases her chakra vestments clearing the way for a new way of being. 

“I feel I really did some deep throat chakra clearing during the journeys for the throat Chakra descent class. It feels like it may have cleared lineage issues for me in this chakra. Always amazed and wowed by all of the beautiful work you two Venus Vision Carriers are bringing forth.”  ~ Robyn

During the descent we join together in reclaiming healthy, vital, ecstatic chakra energy. Our ceremonial collective intent further magnifies and amplifies our individual experience assisting each participant to experience whatever is needed for a successful initiatory journey.

“It’s been a radical! and sometimes tumultuous journey so far for me in this Venus Return; a lot of life changes and experiences to navigate, yet, every step of the way I have felt profoundly supported by you, Cayelin, and Tami and the sacred container that is Venus Alchemy. I have been brought more clearly into focus around the Sacred Work that is truly mine to do and I am so grateful.”  ~ Elizabeth

“I don’t think I’d be doing near as well as I am if not for this Venus connection and community. Learning how to surrender has been key to my mental and physical health and I am grateful.”  ~ KC
