Venusian Priestess: Mary Magdalene Feast Day Teleclass
a benefit fundraiser for the City of Joy
July 22 is the traditional Feast Day of Mary Magdalene – please join me in celebrating Christianity’s “hidden goddess!” You’ll learn about the significance of her story within the context of the closing Piscean Age, as well as her intriguing associations with the planet Venus. We’ll explore evidence that she was NOT a penitent whore, or even the wife of Christ (move over, Da Vinci Code!) but a sacredly sexual priestess of the Goddess.
Can’t make it to the live class? No worries – all registrants will receive a recording of the event, so you can listen at your leisure.
ALL proceeds will go to the City of Joy, a transformational leadership community for women survivors of violence, located in Bukavu, Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). From their site:
“When Eve Ensler first travelled to Eastern DRC in 2007… to meet with and learn from women survivors of violence, she was most interested in knowing what solutions they felt would work in the face of such horrible violence. It was these women who birthed the idea of the City of Joy, saying what they most wanted was a place to live in community so that they could heal – in essence, they wanted a place to turn their pain to power. And so the City of Joy was born.” (read more here)
To register: Make a tax-deductible contribution to the City of Joy, which you can do online here. The suggested donation for this event is $25, but a donation in ANY amount will allow you to participate (please be as generous as you can afford to be – this is an amazing organization!). Email your donation receipt to: guidedbyvenus “at” gmail.com, and I’ll send you the log-in info for the class.

Venus Revolution: 12 Dimensions of the Sacred Feminine
a talk and workshop at New Renaissance Bookshop in NW Portland, $20
How can astrology inform our understanding and embodiment of the reemerging Sacred Feminine? Venus – goddess of love, beauty, eroticism and art – is the archetypal feminine, but her expression has been downsized and diminished over the past few thousand years. We’ll uncover ancient versions of Venus, and open to more liberated and multidimensional flavors of the feminine, via the 12 signs of the zodiac. You’ll learn how the Goddess wants to be expressed through you, by looking at your own personal Venus.
All are welcome, and bring a copy of your birth chart (available for free on astro.com). To register, call New Renaissance: 503.224.4929
