We’re all familiar with the symbolism of Venus; the planet that presides over relationships, pleasure, and beauty, but Venus has so much more to say! In this one-day workshop we’ll learn about the astrological significance of Venus in the birth chart, in transits, and in our current global experience.

Over the next five years, all things Venusian are going through a process of radical transformation. We will also study Venus in your personal birth chart! What, who, and how do you attract? What do you need to flourish creatively? How are you uniquely situated to receive, bond, and prosper? How does your notion of pleasure work for and against your greater good? And don’t worry we WILL cover Venus’ influence on relationships.

This workshop is open to all. You do not need to have any prior experience with astrology. Just bring your curiosity, creativity, and concentration. Oh, and don’t forget your birth chart! You can get a free calculation of your chart at or any number of astrology websites. Exact birth time data is preferred, but if you don’t know it, no worries. We can still find out a lot about your Venus without it.

The workshop will be divided into two segments. At the end of each segment I’m allowing ample time for Q&A/discussion. I want you to get the most out of this workshop, so I highly encourage participation, but it is not mandatory.
