I just got a huge amount of work completed the other day. After I took Arielle Guttman’s Venus Star Point® (VSP) training program, I decided to take the exam to become a certified VSP practitioner. I completed the “great work” the other day. This period felt like an initiation. I loved to work on the exam, and I was amazed by the information the Venus star gave me.
Right now, I’m experiencing a creative flow. I have many ideas on making the Venus star and its insights easily accessible so that people with only a little or no skills in astrological language can benefit from it. I’m planning on starting an Instagram account dedicated to the VSP.
I’ve noticed I also started to imply more color into my life in clothing and decoration (although black and red will still be my number one duo). I even changed my color settings in Planetdance. How did I get here? Only Venus knows. 😄

I am very interested in the origins of astrology – please tell me where to start. Michael
Thanks for your comment! The oldest written documents about astrology are from the Old Babylonian period (2000-1600 BCE).
There are two books in English I recommend looking into. The first is 𝘈 𝘏𝘪𝘴𝘵𝘰𝘳𝘺 𝘰𝘧 𝘏𝘰𝘳𝘰𝘴𝘤𝘰𝘱𝘪𝘤 𝘈𝘴𝘵𝘳𝘰𝘭𝘰𝘨𝘺: 𝘍𝘳𝘰𝘮 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘉𝘢𝘣𝘺𝘭𝘰𝘯𝘪𝘢𝘯 𝘗𝘦𝘳𝘪𝘰𝘥 𝘵𝘰 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘔𝘰𝘥𝘦𝘳𝘯 𝘈𝘨𝘦 by James Herschel Holden, American Federation of Astrologers, 2nd edition, 2006. The second book is called 𝘏𝘦𝘭𝘭𝘦𝘯𝘪𝘴𝘵𝘪𝘤 𝘈𝘴𝘵𝘳𝘰𝘭𝘰𝘨𝘺: 𝘛𝘩𝘦 𝘚𝘵𝘶𝘥𝘺 𝘰𝘧 𝘍𝘢𝘵𝘦 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘍𝘰𝘳𝘵𝘶𝘯𝘦 by Chris Brennan, Amor Fati Publications, 2017.
I assume you also speak German. You might want to look into Rafael Gil Brand’s 𝘓𝘦𝘩𝘳𝘣𝘶𝘤𝘩 𝘥𝘦𝘳 𝘬𝘭𝘢𝘴𝘴𝘪𝘴𝘤𝘩𝘦𝘯 𝘈𝘴𝘵𝘳𝘰𝘭𝘰𝘨𝘪𝘦, Chiron Verlag, 2000. You can also check out the first article I published here on my blog in 2018, which is about the history of astrology: https://livingincycles.blog/2018/05/26/geschichte-der-astrologie/.
These few suggestions should help you get started. I hope you enjoy reading and learning.
Alles Gute! ✨
