Arielle Guttman – Career Counseling and Life Coaching Using the Venus Star Point®
Fort Mason, Landmark Building C, Rm 210
June 3 2017, 1-5PM




A frequent question that comes to the astrologer is: “What should I be doing with my life?” In this workshop, we will discover a potent new astrological tool to answer this question.

Most of us are familiar with the position of natal Venus in our charts and what it says about the love and relationship area of our lives. But there is a greater Venus, one that represents heart and soul united within our beings. This Venus is the Venus Star, produced from the eight-year cyclical pentagram produced by Venus in her orbit around the Sun. Its five points, called by Arielle, the Venus Star Points, helps the astrologer navigate through a person’s chart to find the essential talent – that which drives them.

Accompanied by examples shown through colorful slides and images, Arielle guides us through choosing a path of the “heart” for all things in life, based on the orbital pattern of the Venus Star. In this workshop you will discover the position of your own Venus Star Point® and what it reveals about your life.

Light refreshments provided. Please arrive early, especially if you’d like to mingle with astrology enthusiasts. Peruse astrology books on a lollapalooza of a sale!
