“Adam Gainsburg’s work is an alchemy of intelligence and imagination that opens a brilliant pathway to take astrology from a cerebral, psychological study, more deeply into the full art of being human. As an astrologer, discovering Adam Gainsburg’s work was a bit like discovering a new wing in my well-loved house. I believe he has created a new mythology of Venus.“ – Mary Plumb, Book Editor, The Mountain Astrologer
Rooted in the most ancient skywatching practices and explained for modern readers, The Light of Venus is less astrology book and more a sky compass for empowering our femininity. It shows you how to connect what you see in the sky with how you best participate in the world. Extensive explanations, look-up tables, and attractive sky graphics make it easy to understand both the astronomy and the actual human experience of Venus in our skies at every phase. Also features an unprecedented look at our Moon and how Lady Luna further illuminates the Phases of Venus. The Light of Venus unlocks the ancient art of delineating observable planetary events and grounds them in contemporary, forward-leaning understandings.
Adam’s research of the Venus-Sun cycle spans over 9 years. It draws on information from astrology, psychology, archeology, astronomy, neuroscience, biomimicry, physics, geology, geometry, shamanism, etymology, cosmology, metaphysics, history, anthropology and more.
ACCLAIM FROM TOP ASTROLOGERS AND ASTROLOGY PUBLICATIONS
“Adam Gainsburg listened to the sky and the sky did something it very rarely does: it revealed to him a new secret. Read “The Light of Venus” and you will know the secret too.” – Steven Forrest, author of The Inner Sky
“The Light of Venus explores in great detail the phases occurring in the cycle of Venus [and] reveals the importance of seeing each specific placement in the horoscope as embedded in a network of interplanet cycles and holographic connections.” – Melanie Reinhart, author of Chiron and the Healing Journey
“Adam Gainsburg’s book will appeal to anyone interested in understanding about their unique purpose on this planet, particularly through their ‘dharma’-or spiritual responsibility- describing the unique gift that each person can bring into the world.” – Diana McMahon Collis, The Astrological Journal (January/February 2013 issue).
“This book offers not only a thorough discussion of the 13 Venus phases,but also a complete system of tracking those phases in the sky should you want to. And even if you don’t want to, Gainsburg—who is clearly an avid skywatcher himself—may change your mind with his insights. He also makes it easy for you to know where to look for Venus, as clear diagrams of each phase are included along with other astronomical information such as the length of each phase as they are not of equal length.” – Donna Van Toen, March/April 2013 NCGR Member Letter.
