Embracing Your Deeper Feminine, Empowering Our Shared Future
by Adam Gainsburg
"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
The Light of Venus offers a complete system of tracking with and understanding the cycle of Venus in our skies. It demonstrates how to embrace more of your inner feminine nature so that you can better contribute to an improved world. The dynamic phases of Venus are an untapped gem for those wishing to shift out of a me-centric life and into a we-empowered life. The day you were born reveals which of Venus' 13 phases is yours. It describes how your innate Feminine Self unfolds into a unique and co-creative Feminine Dharma.
As personal Venus in astrology describes our personal feminine function, dharmic Venus describes our societal feminine function. She's our contribution to a better, richer, easier, deeper and more beautiful society. When your dharmic Venus is fully operative, you enrich the world, not necessarily by trying to do so but by being your own more enriched self with others. This can translate to your feminine spiritual calling, your path of service or your lifelong commitment to personal transformation.
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.

What top astrologers are saying...
"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

THE LIGHT OF VENUS has received praise from the industry's top publications
"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).
"It is a pleasure to see that Adam Gainsburg’s work on the cycles of Venus has come into print. In the autobiographical section of this book, the author relates that, when he was younger, he was fascinated with the night sky and tried to identify planetary patterns and meaning, long before he actually studied astrology. Once he took up astrology, he wanted nothing more than to bring his earlier intuitions together with his developing astrological knowledge, and this volume is part of the result." - J. Lee Lehman, Ph. D., The Mountain Astrologer (December 2012/January 2013 issue).
"...[E]ach of the 13 phases is explored by offering key phrases, a deeper explanation, a diagram that depicts the leg of Venus's entire journey and a meditation image. Throughout the narrative, the author shows how the phase connects one's personal purpose to the advancement of civilization. This is one's dharma, which is ingeniously associated with Venus. Gainsburg's text is completely original, unique and relevant." - Chris Lorenz, Dell Horoscope (September 2013).
"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.

The Light of Venus represents a new stage in working with phases and cycles. Factors such as speed, brightness, Earth proximity and sky appearance are shown to directly reveal the meanings of each of Venus' 13 Phases. Each one is entirely unique, of unequal duration and based on far more than a simple division of the ideal circle. The Light of Venus also includes easy look-up tables, a special focus on the Venus-Moon Cycle, a method for interpreting visual characteristics of planetary aspects, and a number of appendices geared for the professional. Studying the remarkable symmetry of the Venus-Earth-Sun relationship through its entire cycle – intimate invisibility, morning star, distant invisibility to evening star – can re-enamor us to the beauty of the living sky.
