Venus cycle

I was working on my solar return chart for 2015 (i.e., the chart for the moment that the Sun returns to the precise zodiacal position it occupied at birth) this morning.

When I came to the section of the book I'm using that deals with Venus, it was mentioned that Venus returns to approximately the same position in the solar return chart every 8 years. It was suggested that one take a look at previous solar return (SR) charts when Venus occupied the same location that it will in the coming year.

I'm not sure why I didn't do this last year, when I worked with this book for the first time, but I tried it this time nonetheless.

Backing up 8 years from the coming solar return, that was the time that my mother moved from a rehabilitation facility to home hospice, i.e. the beginning of the end for her. It was also the last time that I attended the main annual North American conference in my academic discipline. I'm planning to attend that conference this year.

Backing up 8 years further, my husband and I were in our first house and were--naturally--working on home improvements. (This year, once again, seems to be one for home improvements.) I was living in the Atlanta area at that time, had made friends with some gay Muslims, and was looking for a local tariqat affiliation.

Backing up 8 years more, I was teaching as a graduate assistant for the first time.

8 years prior to that, I was a senior in college, dealing with love life complications and trying to figure out what to (attempt to) do for a career.

8 years prior to that, I was in 8th grade, having just returned to public school after spending a year at a private school.

8 years prior to that, I was in kindergarten.

Each time, Venus was in late 21 or early 22 Virgo, in the 1st house of my natal chart, and direct (i.e., not retrograde).

A number of notable beginnings, and endings.
