15. Planetary Combinations of Venus with Becca Tarnas Part 1

I interviewed Becca Tarnas, scholar and archetypal astrologer. She recently received a PhD in Philosophy and Religion at the California Institute of Integral Studies, and her dissertation is titled The Back of Beyond: The Red Books of C.G. Jung and J.R.R. Tolkien. She is a deeply imaginative intellectual and a talented astrologer. When we had this conversation I honestly felt like a portal to another universe opened up!

In this episode we talked about the nature of archetypes, the current Saturn-Pluto conjunction and how we’ve been seeing that manifest, the planetary combinations of Venus through the pairings she makes with the Sun, Moon, Mercury, and so on all the way out to Pluto, and then at the end we wrapped back around to Saturn and Pluto by talking about the triple combination of Venus, Saturn, and Pluto (listen to part 2 of this episode for that). I honestly feel transformed by this conversation, and I imagine that any astrologers or astrology enthusiasts out there will also take something away from this episode that enhances your understanding of Venus.

To get into the juiciness of this episode, you probably need to know how to tell what planets you have in aspect to Venus - (those are things like Venus conjunct, sextile, square, opposition and trine). I’m guessing a lot of the listeners here are into astrology but can’t assume! So in case you don’t know off the top of your head what planets you have in aspect to Venus or what your friends’ and lovers’ Venus aspects are…. This would be a good time to geek out on, perhaps try their free chart called “astro click portrait” and take a look around, and the software on that site will tell you who Venus is touching in your chart.
