New Venus Retrograde Video Workshop

I am pleased to announce my new video workshop on Venus retrograde. This is a much-improved version of my old workshop, taped in January 2014.

This 45-minute workshop offers an in-depth examination of the Venus synodic cycle and its retrograde phases in natal charts, transits, and synastry, featuring 38 example cases drawn from notable nativities.Venus Video cover - The Brightest Star in the Sky by Nick Dagan Best

 

1977: Sting and the Police Live Debut

Sting The Police 1977 Pink Stamp Astrology Horoscopes Nick Dagan BestTwenty-five year-old singer and bassist Gordon “Sting” Sumner plays his first gig with his new band, a trio called The Police, at a club in Newport, Wales. Consisting of drummer Stewart Copeland and guitarist Henry Padovani, the group is trying to break into the British punk scene. Following a forty minute set, he and Copeland also perform in headliner Cherry Vanilla’s backing band.

Transiting Venus is pre-retrograde conjunct Sting’s natal Midheaven in Aries, opposite natal Neptune and the Moon in Libra, signifying the ruse of older musicians to infiltrate an emerging youth movement. Transiting Saturn is conjunct the natal Ascendant in Leo, square transiting Uranus in Scorpio, indicating an urge for self-reinvention.
