Q: How do I find my Venus Star Point (tm)?
A: Follow this link
Q: Why is this astrology for the 21st century?
A: Because this is an entirely new system for astrology. Venus has never been used in this way before.
Q: What is different about how you use Venus?
A: Typically, Venus (as with the other planets) are charted from their location by sign, house and degree on the day you are born. This Venus position, called the Venus Star Point, is charted from the last activation of the point, prior to your birth.
Q: When is the activation of the star point?
A: The activation of the star point occurs in the formation of Venus in its orbit around the Sun. Venus traces a five pointed star (pentagram) every eight years. So, in an eight year period, five activations happen. In a sixteen year period, ten activations occur, and in a forty year period twenty five activations occur.
Q: What do these Star Point activations mean?
A: I have named them the Venus Star Point™ and I have seen how they operate in people’s lives and in people’s charts in an entirely different manner than the natal Venus.
Q: How would you describe the difference between the Venus Star Point and the natal Venus?
A: The natal Venus and the Venus Star are certainly related, in that both energies emanate from the same planet. But the Venus Star Point incorporates the kiss of Venus to the Sun, the time when Venus was passing through the heart of the Sun. The Venus Star Point, then, combines the love of Venus with the light and energy of the Sun, acting as a potential laser beam of light and love that fills the individual. The Venus Star Point is a focal point of energy that an individual uses throughout their lives. It defines what they are best at doing, and where their real talent lies. It comes from inner love – loving what they are doing and how they are manifesting it to others and to the world. By contrast, the natal Venus operates as a metaphor for love that the person seeks outside of oneself – and looks to fulfill through relationships, experiences and environments.
Q: How would a person determine their natural talent through the Venus Star Point (VSP)?
A: Begin by looking up one’s date of birth in the table provided in the book. That will provide you with the VSP by sign, and designate whether it was operating as a Morning Star or Evening Star. From there, you would read the chapters concerning the difference between Morning Star and Evening Star, which modern astrology is just beginning to incorporate into its lingo and interpretive analysis. The difference between those two Venuses alone, is profound.
Then, proceed to the sign chapter in which the Venus Star Point is listed. For each of the twelve signs, there is an extensive amount of information given, including one’s greatest gift, assets and liabilities of the VSP in a particular sign. Also presented are numerous examples of celebrities who possess that Venus Star sign.
Q: How is this different from one’s (Sun) sign?
A: The Venus Star Point incorporates the merging of Venus and the Sun together. There is a different perspective than one’s Sun (ego identified) sign. The Venus Star position identifies the place in which one operates solely from the mind of the heart (as opposed to the mind). Also, Venus is a feminine archetype. The Sun is a masculine based archetype. From a Sun sign (solar logos) one identifies one’s will and character. From a Venus Star sign one identifies one’s core feelings from the perspective of the heart.
Q: You have talked about how one VSP feeds another. Can you explain this in greater detail?
A: The feeding of one star point to another is how Venus progresses on her journey in creating the pentagram. Although the planets transit in a counter-clockwise direction around the wheel of the zodiac, moving with the natural order of the zodiac, the Venus Star is perpetually moving in what appears to be retrograde motion, clockwise around the zodiac. The current order of signs that make up the full star of Venus are:
Aries – Capricorn – Scorpio – Leo -- Gemini
In the natural order of the zodiac, Capricorn would follow Scorpio, and Scorpio would follow Leo, and so forth. But in the Venus Star transits, they take this order.
Q: Is the Venus Star always in these five signs?
A: No, they change very slowly over the course of time. The Venus Star transits one sign for approximately 100 years, making it the longest transit of any of our planets. Pluto, for instance, can spend up to 30 years in a sign and the other planets spend considerably less time in a sign. This makes the effects of Venus Star’s transit through that sign quite profound when examining the timelines of history and culture.
Q: How so?
A: This was one of the most startling revelations I uncovered in researching the Venus Star. That history, art, culture, politics and style are all greatly informed by the presence of the Venus Star in any given time period. For instance, the five signs mentioned above are the signs of the current Venus Star transit (since the 1980s). But the baby-boomers have a different star energy. Their five signs consisted of:
Aries – Aquarius – Scorpio – Virgo – Cancer
Only two of those star signs are active now: Aries and Scorpio. Cancer’s star terminated in 1960 and four years later the Gemini Star was born. The 1960s was a profound time of changing tides and themes. Aquarius and Virgo phased out in the early 1980s and by the late 1980s were replaced by Capricorn and Leo. Both pairs are what are called life mates on the Venus Star, as they phase in together and phase out together. Aries and Scorpio are also life mates whose inception occurred in the 1920s and 1930s and their termination occurs in the 2020s-2030s. And again, in that time period, the 2020s and 2030s, we will give birth to two new Venus Star signs: Pisces and Libra, who are themselves, life mates.
Q: What else can you tell us about that time period?
A: If we can steer ourselves and our planet through the stormy, turbulent seas that we are now embarked upon, we can look forward to a time of renewed love and respect for each other and for our planet. The two signs that the Venus Star will be entering are Venus-related signs. Two of the signs that the Venus Star will be terminating are Mars-ruled signs. I believe this will have a profound impact on people’s attitudes, behavior, and actions.
