This 40 day course is designed to take you through the steps of the Heroine’s journey in astrological style!
Through Innana’s journey into the underworld; Venus’ journey from evening star to morning star where she is not visible in the night sky. The 2018 Retrograde of Venus begins at 10˚ Scorpio and ends at 25˚ Libra and, therefore, this retrograde journey takes you deeply into how you relate to others, including how you relate to your disowned self and your shadow.
The retrograde journey of Venus is depicted in the Mesopotamian tale of the descent of Inanna into the underworld. It is the story of a journey into the dark places in relationship. During her descent, Inanna was stopped seven times, at seven gates. Each time, she had to remove one item from her person and leave it behind so she could go on. Any or all of these items might have symbolic meaning for your explorations during this Venus retrograde period.
You will go through a virtual shamanic dismemberment and energy extraction process and then a group soul retrieval at the end. Always guided by the planets, this journey will transform you beyond belief as I guide you through the 7 gates of descent Astrologically and Shamanically.
We’ll actually begin with a recorded call on September 2nd, when Venus enters her shadow, and end with a group call on December 17th when Venus finally fully emerges into the light. The first ‘call’ is a recorded ‘how to prepare call’ and there is no ‘live’ option so you can listen at any time.
During the period Oct 2nd (Rx begins Oct 5th but I will be at the iAstrologer conference on the 5th) to Nov 16th we will have weekly calls at the following dates and times (I have a LOT of travel during October so I cannot do the same day and time). All calls will be recorded:
- Oct 2 12pm MDT
- Oct 12th 12pm MDT
- Oct 19th 12pm MDT
- Oct 30th 2pm MDT
- Nov 2nd 10am MDT
- Nov 9th 10am MDT
- Nov 16th 10am MDT
You will also receive tips in the private Facebook group before and during the 40 day period with exercises, inspiration and tools to urge you on on your journey. I will not be emailing these or the recordings. All activity, call details, recordings etc take place in the private Facebook space and we’ll be using Zoom for the calls. Recordings will be available for download in the group.
In addition to the astrological teachings etc, you will also experience deep shamanic healing journeys and will know what part of your life is affected by this retrograde as I will discuss what area of your chart is being affected.
This intensive will take you on your Heroine’s journey of exploration into your own personal underworld.
You will be given tools to help you on that journey of mastery, a virtual vision quest.
This is for you if:
- You are prepared to go really deep into the self.
- You are ready to find a deeper purpose.
- You are ready for a more meaningful life.
- You are ready to really strip down to your bones (virtually) and recreate yourself.
- You are ready to lead the way into the New Paradigm.
- Ready to integrate the male and female energies within.
This is an immersion and I know that you have got this!
Each Venus retrograde has it’s own flavor and this one has the flavor of the magical number 1, the number of beginnings.
Time to begin anew as this Retrograde comes at the end of a period of major turmoil!!! I cannot WAIT to take you through this journey!
All calls will be recorded and I’ll create a private Facebook group for the duration of the course. The group will close on Dec 31st after our final call which will be a Q&A/integration call to see how the work has changed you!
WHY 40 DAYS?
Venus’ apparent retrograde happens around every 18 months and always lasts for 40 days.
Under the vibration of the number 40, we are ready to build our higher consciousness; one that is developed on all levels of living.
