Product Description

Product Description

"“Venus has always been associated with the feminine in astrology and in culture, yet little emphasis is placed upon the wisdom aspect of the planet. With the cycles of Venus we are given insight into the unfolding of wisdom within ourselves and society, especially with the cycle of Venus’ inferior conjunctions – the so-called 2nd order cycle of the planet. In her timely and much-needed work, Firegazing, Gail has brilliantly outlined the meaning and import of these cycles and the deeper meaning of a planet that often only receives a passing notice in astrology, yet is so intimately connected with our own lives and what it is to be human. When Venus passes across the face of the solar orb, we are given opportunity to gaze into the very fire of the soul itself. Well done, Gail!”
- Malvin Artley"

2.0 out of 5 stars When Venus transits astrology 18 May 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
When I saw the book title and that the author had a Ph.D. I assumed that this was going to be a science based book on the astronomy of the forthcoming transit of Venus. A big mistake - this book is entirwely astrological making some quite startlingly major claims for the impact of the transit on terrestial affairs. I am not versed in astrology so cannot comment on the opinions expressed however I would warn any astronomers that there is nothing on the astronomy of the transit in this book. I have now retruned the book to Amazonn for a refund.Fire-Gazing: When Venus Transits the Sun 2004 and 2012. There is a book by Andrea Wulf 'Chasing Venus' that does cover the astronomical history of the transits - I have ordered it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Transits of Venus 11 May 2013
By Margie - Published on
Fire Gazing: When Venus Transits the Sun 2004 and 2012 gives a wonderful overview of an interesting astrological event. I found the historical perspective fascinating. This is written as much for the person with little knowledge of astrology as it is for the more serious student. Thanks to Gail for this very needed book.
5.0 out of 5 stars Excelent Perspective 7 May 2013
By Rebecca Stone - Published on
Dr. Dimitroff provides a very special observation of this event, with historical studies of the effects back to the discovery of the planet. She addresses the global changes in observable cultural events.
