How to Draw the Rose of Venus

The Rose of Venus is a natural pattern created by the orbital path of Venus relative to the Earth. 13 orbits of the Sun for Venus roughly equate to 8 Earth years. 13-8=5. Over the space of eight years, we end up with this cool five fold pattern, also known as the Venus Pentagram.

Legend has it that drawing the Rose of Venus opens one up to the harmonious energies of Venus and invites love, passion and joy into your life.

I’ll break down the geometric structure of the symbol and give you all the guidelines you’ll need to draw your own Rose of Venus using a compass and a straight-edge. I’ll let you in on my thought process and explain every step along the way from start to finish so you can draw along with me.

You’ll also get all the measurements, scans and diagrams of the whole process to simplify a complicated design.

Let’s give it a go, shall we?

I have recently started with Zak’s tutorials and have finished the seven chakras. The tutorials were thorough, easy to follow, and a lot of fun. I know I will continue with this play for a while. The only problem is that there are so many great inspirations, so little time.

I have been following Zak and his channel for over a year now. I found geometric drawing at a time in my life where I was going through a lot of change. Positive change, and following the tutorials played a huge part in that. Thank you.

I am always mesmerized watching Zak draw.
I love his designs and how he makes it seem so easy!
