JUNE 2011 Gary Caton: Cycles of Venus: The Goddess of Sex, Love & Rebirth
The ability to distinguish the oriental/morning star appearance of Venus from her occidental/evening star appearance gives another layer of interpretive ability and greatly adds to the depth and richness of a reading. We will also learn to identify the invisible phases of Venus and explore them through the metaphor of Ishtar’s mythological descent to the Underworld. We will see how the entire process of Venus’ visual cycle is intricately related to her mythology. We can work in a discussion of the 2012 Venus transit here as well.
