The Venus Working
a six week invocation of the magic of Venus
I want to invite you on a rose-scented journey of practical witchery this summer.
I want to show you how delightful and pleasure-filled life can be when you add just a little Venusian magic!
The Venus Working is a six week immersion into the seductive, delicious, pleasure-filled and life-affirming energy of the Goddess of Love, Venus. It's all about soaking you in Her energy so it spills over into all areas of your life, and learning how to embrace fun and pleasure as essential parts on a Goddess Spirituality Journey!
I made this course as I have had such a powerful transformative experience working with Venus, and I have had so many questions and calls to share my process of working with her - and the many women who have taken this course have also experienced HUGE life-changing transformations, opening up to the FUN of being alive and in connection with the Divine.
If you are done with spirituality feeling like a chore, if you are feeling like life really shouldn't be this... well, grey and lifeless, if you are feeling a low on lust for life or if you are just feeling a tug to work with the Goddess of Love in a very down to earth and practical way, this is the course for you!
COURSE BEGINS 24th JUNE 2019!
REGISTRATION OPEN UNTIL 9pm 26th JUNE 2019
"The Venus Working is an amazing course and deepened my relationship with Venus-Aphrodite in a massive and yummy way. It’s the best gift I’ve ever given myself - thanks Demi!"
a.k.a. how this course was born and what magic it makes in your life
I developed this work with Venus about three years ago. You see, back then I had just broken up with the man who I had thought of as the love of my life. I thought we would be together forever....until, after seven years, I finally took off the rose-tinted glasses, looked around and knew I didn't want the rest of my life to be like this. I knew I needed to leave, even if it broke my heart.
So leave I did.
I was devastated.
I had no money. Nowhere to live, and no deposit for a rental. I spent the next seven months living between my mum's spare room and my friend's sofa.
You know the story. Life was shitty. I now lived too far away from my friends and the city to socialise, I was skint and had no car or way to get to more work, and my only company was my mum's resentful cat Breshnev.
My life was just... no fun. No fun at all. I felt isolated and alone. I felt like all my plans and desires were impossible fantasies, and I could feel my life slipping into a rut of moping about, not really living, of the same lonely thing day after day after day.
So I started to invoke Venus. She is the Goddess of Pleasure and Love: of sensuality and sweetness. She is the feeling of when you bite into a ripe, juicy, unbelievably delicious strawberry, and it tastes soo good you savour every drop of flavour on your tongue and you moan with pleasure because it's so tasty and your whole being is opening up to the sensual bliss and pleasure of being in this juicy strawberry moment...
That's what I wanted.
So I started working with her every day. I practiced devotions to her, read books aligned with her energy, I practiced her arts of Temple Tending and Beautification. I had fun! My Venus Working was my favourite part of the day! I consciously brought her energy into my life, did things in honour of her, made decisions influenced by her.
This work saturated my life with Venus Vibes.
Only a few months of devotion later, I had moved to a PERFECT home, full of fine art and velvet sofas and puppy dogs and wonderful people, in a PERFECT location, for a PERFECT price. I was spending the most fun times with my best friends, and was opening up to hobbies I thought I'd forgotten about: I was back in Latin Dance class, and napping in hammocks in the afternoons. I'd spent a month in Brazil healing from my breakup (having all my accommodation gifted to me by a friend), and was filled with renewed confidence and hope for my work - in fact, I was inspired to create a new course and commit even fuller to my path as a Priestess.
Most importantly, life was FUN again, filled with hope and happy synchronicities. I was cycling home across fields of flowers every day, beaming with gratitude, going over and over in my mind...
".... I'm so lucky. My life is SO BEAUTIFUL. I live in the best place, have the most amazing friends, I am having so much fun.... I can't believe how amazing my life is right now."
Yup. For realsies. I was one of those people.
A little later I even met a super handsome lover man at latin dance class who was everything I desired, and we are still dancing together today.
This is the work of Venus.
She teaches you how to fall in love with life, how to open up to pleasure, and how open up to the possibility that life is miraculously fun.
So that's our game plan in this course. We are going to use every trick I know to open ourselves up to all the luscious pleasure and fun life has to offer. We will live with Venus' eyes. We will invoke her blessings in our lives and let her transform us as she will.
This work changes lives. It makes people happier. It's the work of learning to let life be wonderful - something we often need to re-teach ourselves! It brings all our desires and dreams to fruition... if we are willing to open up our whole life to her and let her work magic!
"I loved this course from the start! I felt the magic of Venus the moment I started putting together my altar - I felt the magic. I loved the daily ritual and meditation. Venus made me stop and enjoy the beauty around me and create that in my life and home. Venus woke me up to the depths of the luxurious goddess I am. She took me on a journey as an actor traveling between NY and LA for shoots, meetings and experiences where charm and heart shone fiercely. I had so much glamour in my pocket that every snapshot had an aura around me...even in sweats. I stayed healthy for 2 solid months (even with an auto immune condition during the east coast winter) and was exposed to herbalism and delicious foods. My wardrobe became exquisitely stylish in a delightfully inexpensive way (designer items at discount rates) and the cash flowed by the grace of new alchemy therapy clients and a few jobs."
- Apsara S,
Below is our curriculum outline. Expect a weekly online ritual, lecture or Q&A; lots of spells, rituals and exercises to try out; and lots of fun fun fun practical work to get on with - invoking Venus effectively into our lives is all about being super practical, taking action, and slowly building our devotions so they weave seamlessly with our lives.

"After engaging in the Venus Working, I found myself finding beauty all around me, and felt inspired to share beauty of my own with others. I began taking better care of my appearance and seeking out more creative pursuits, while also finding more moments in the day to appreciate the beauty around me." Elzibelle Goss

"When I took the Venus Working course with Demi I wasn't feeling very sexy or loved. I was hurting from a romantic rejection and didn't feel very connected to myself. But already a week into it I could sense a clear shift - I was more in my body, my sensuality, and my self-compassion. I remember going out one evening after a doing one of Demi's guided meditations, and several people told me I looked radiant. Pure magic!"
- Yvette S
"I joined the Venus Working as soon as I read about it because it was really calling me... and I've been right following my instinct: for me it has been a very sweet but solid path leading me to deepen my relationship with Venus but also to strengthen my sense of self-worth and my search for pleasure and abundance!"
Since so many of our past students have wanted more information about Venus and Money, we have a whole bonus module based on linking Money and Work to Venus!
I've invited my good friend Kris Oster to come and lead a lecture on thinking about money and work with an Aphrodite mindset - she is an author and coach with a Phd in Mythology who works specifically with using archetypes to open up our lives and business, and she's a smart lady who is going to give you a whole host of interesting things to think about.
She's spent so much of her life learning about and linking sexuality with everything she can get her hands on - money, business, manifesting, you name it - she has some seriously juicy stuff to share with us in this workshop
We'll have some worksheets to play with, and I'll be sharing everything I know about Money and Venus: you get to ask me your questions and I will give you answers. I'm thinking we'll do a little Appreciate Your Money challenge - because it's hard for money to grow and feel loved when you refuse to look at it. We will be finding simple Venusian ways to change our thoughts around money so it can be a delightful friend, rather than your jailor.
Since so many past students expressed interest in learning more about Venus and Aphrodite's history, I have added this module!
In this class, we have an interview with a modern day priestess of Aphrodite. She will talk to us about Aphrodite's ancient and modern worship, and what it means to be a Priestess of Aphrodite in the modern world.
We will also have a beautiful fully illustrated PDF all about the ancient worship of Venus and Aphrodite, her festivals and festivities, where her ancient sites of worship were, and how she would have been worshipped in the ancient world.
I'm excited to be making something really beautiful for you!
This course is very simple, and it just involves putting in the work and relaxing into Venus's flow and pleasure. If each week you show up, participate a little bit and relax and open into Venus' magic, stuff will start to shift. It's not hard, because most spiritual truths and magical workings are not hard - we like to cloud and complicate things and make things hard because humans are dumb that way. You can do it. You don't have to do everything perfectly to bring more beauty and fun into your life - Venus wants more fun and ease for you!
I feel more empowered than I have ever before. Venus is THE goddess for me. She helped me to open my heart and see beauty everywhere. I’ve taken more photos of beautiful things during this course than I have in years. How much better can it get?
Thank you doesn’t even begin to cover the deep sense of gratitude I feel for what you have given us/me, for a forever changed life"
"Do this course. You will fall in love with the real you...with so much overflowing joy spilling from your heart...it's contagious!."

We have a handy payment plan (4 fortnightly payments of £30), and you can pay through Stripe or Paypal.
(If you pay through Stripe you will get access to our prep work materials faster, as for PayPal I have to manually add you and most of the next few weeks I will be exploring the ancient temples of the Goddess in Crete (lucky me) and sorting out adding people admin whenever I find internet.)
Registration is open from the 5th June till 9pm on the 26th June. You get access to this course for whole of the next year, if not longer, so you can take it as slowly as you want and have loads of time to do stuff as it fits around your life.
This course is not open for enrollment.
I, Demi, am a practical, working Priestess of the Goddess and have been working with Venus intimately for the last two and a half years, including becoming a Priestess of Rhiannon through taking an in-depth two-year training in Glastonbury in order to further my devotion to Her. I'm known for creating powerful rituals and super badass meditations, and for presenting pathways to Goddess Spirituality in a fun down-to-earth way.
I am a Sister of Avalon at the Glastonbury Goddess Temple, and a Priestess of Rhiannon trained by Katinka Soetens and I am a Priestess of Morgan le Fey, running red tents and women's circles and training programs and retreats and all sorts.
I'm a hereditary witch on my mother's side, and have been working with the Goddess for the last 15 years. I've been obsessed with the archetype of Venus and the Goddess of Love for the last few years and have had AMAZING results from working with Her - and I want you to have amazing results working with her too!
"I've had the pleasure of taking several courses with Demi Fox and count her teachings as one of the biggest influences on my spiritual practice and journey as a witch. The thing I love the most about Demi is how real she is. She has this gift of being able to straddle the chasm between being utterly pragmatic and also divinely magickal and she's so incredibly good at teaching others how to do the same. When I take a course from Demi, I never feel bad about myself for not being enough or doing enough. She's learned how to embody the divine through the mundanity of real life, which when it comes down to it, is what this work is all about."
Frequently Asked Questions
"The Venus Working taught me that the most important thing in whatever I do is to have fun with it. Otherwise it just won't work, and I will end up miserable! It's a simple lesson, but I guess you don't fully understand it until you realise how little you actually know about what brings you joy. Another really useful lesson was the Princess and Shielded Maiden lecture. It brought into light so many unconscious patterns hiding in plain sight! Again, simple but brilliant! It has definitely helped me to review my behavior in any given situation and change how I respond to triggers, thank you again Venus!"
"I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to connect with Venus but during this course I absolutely did! Working with Venus every day brought about some big changes within me. By embracing Venusian energy, every aspect of my life is genuinely better and happier. This course is beautiful and enriching, and I’m so glad to have allowed Venus into my life."
You know you want to! This is the start of a summer lived in languorous beauty - a summer spent rediscovering your love and lust for life, working magic in the easiest, most delicious way possible and opening up to let the universe make love to you again and again and again.
Venus magic just makes us happy. That's why we do it.
Registration is open until midnight on Sunday 23rd June!
