The first half of the Venus Cycle lasts from June 3, 2020 until March 25, 2021. This is the time when Venus is the Morning Star (meaning visible in the morning). Astrologer Adam Gainsburg of Soulsignastrology.com (and who I consider an expert on Venus) gave an excellent talk on what to expect during the first half of the Venus Cycle. He gives both astrological interpretation and his own opinions in the talk, and is careful to specify when his own opinions are given. He also gives many dates, so I found it important to have my iPad handy to take notes as I listened. You can find the video of the talk here. In case you are not familiar with the phases of Venus found in Adam's book, The Light of Venus, here they are for the first half of the cycle. The following is an *extremely* abbreviated version of of these phases. You can find the full information, along with the dates, in Adam's book or his new Venus Calendar that he just released. Also, for those that are interested, Andrea Michelle Kennedy, also of Soulsign, is launching a new opportunity for those who further wish to explore the Venus cycle within a shared community. She is calling it the Venus Gemini Cycle Learning Circle. If you wish to participate or find out more about it, contact her at Andrea@precioushumanbirth.com. I am going to participate and am really looking forward to it!

Phase 6 - Surrendering & Discovery Phase of Venus - August 13, 2020 to January 31, 2021 - Venus as Morning Star
Theme: Through the Surrendering process, we learn of our attachments, ignorance and fear and meet them with honesty, courage, and forgiveness. Through the Discovery process, we learn of what can never be lost within us, deeply reaffirming our will to be here in our lives.
Phase 7 - Immersion Phase of Venus - January 31 to March 25, 2021 - Venus is Invisible in our Sky
Theme: This phase holds the path into our deepest transformation; there is a heightened aliveness that comes from how much of ourselves we keep hidden (from ourselves).
May all beings be at ease!
