Venus Retrograde: TV Provocateur

Astrology and Sitcoms

I just posted a brief excerpt from the new 45-minute astrology video workshop. It begins with an edited version of the intro, followed by an exposé covering the natal Venus retrogrades of TV sitcom stars Suzanne Somers and Ellen DeGeneres, and their roles in advancing sexual liberty in television’s most saccharine genre.

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

 

1970: Suzanne Somers Arrested for Writing Bad Checks

Twenty-three year-old aspiring actress and model Suzanne Somers is arrested in San Francisco for writing bad checks totalling $100. After being booked, printed, and strip searched, she avoids prosecution by covering her debts and costs.

Transiting Neptune is conjunct Somers’ natal Venus in Sagittarius, while transiting Uranus is conjunct natal Neptune in Libra, indicating potential detachment from reality, and a period of reassessing self-worth. Transiting Mars and Saturn are conjunct in Taurus, square natal Saturn in Leo, and opposite both transiting and natal Jupiter in Scorpio, signifying a hard life lesson on personal accountability through crisis.
