PROJECT 40::35:



40 Days of

With Sherene Vismaya, M.A.
Katelan Foisy



How can the Venus Rx:: of LOVE and DESIRE heal our relationships
with Self and Other?







As Venus moves between the alchemical fire-water terrain of:
 Aries-Pisces and then back to Aries we emerge from the unconscious, self-sabotaging, illusory waters of Pisces into the primal scream of Aries. We move from victims to warrior goddesses; from self-sacrifice to self-containment; from suffering to surging!

Here we are navigating the slippery slope of losing ourselves in the delusional waters of romance in our quest for the divine and the sublime. We lose ourselves in order to find ourselves. 



How to rock the room, a meeting, and your life.

Keeping your personal and creative spark alive even w hen outside world seems dark and dreary

The reading of tea leaves. Special rituals for tea time,
relaxation, and finding your fate at the bottom of the cup.

How to work with mirrors- anointing mirrors, special
symbolism, working with the mirror as ally

Moving out of negative thoughts
into the realm of imagination, creation and receptivity.



Seeing yourself, your emotions, and core self
through the eye of a lens

Working the Venus Rx:

The second of the last 7 magical P40's devoted to the 7 planets
and the last chance to do a P40 with Sherene and Katelan together. 


Imagine the power of delving into your inner world on a daily and nightly basis for 40 Days and 40 Nights—supported by insights, rituals, and community! 

P40: The VENUS: is a 40-Day Jungian journaling program that you can do from anywhere at any time.
For 40 days and 40 nights, we will invoke the power and presnece of VENUS.

Guided and inspired by daily emails, a private Facebook community page, personalized journaling reflections, individual astrology readings and more, you will emerge from this alchemical journey  with greater awareness, freedom, and a sense of co-creation with the Goddess of Beauty and Love,  VENUS

 This supported journey will help you unlock your innate beauty, self-love, manifestation and creative potential. As you embody a greater understanding of the manifestation powers of Venus, your waking life will shift towards the magical, the glamorous and the synchronistic. 
Even if you’re convinced you’re someone who simply doens't have time for self-reflection, self-analysis and delving into your heart of hearts, even 20 minutes a day of P40 will change all of that. 


I conceived of Project 40 as a way to help those who could not afford to come for regular therapy sessions. I also wanted to find a way to leverage the daily experiential tools and rituals we can all use. The Internet allows me to do this and I invest a great deal of time and energy in order to make each Project 40 journey a highly personal and “of the moment” journey. Nothing cookie-cutter or generic like you might expect with many online packages and programs.

Project 40 is extremely unique and will take you just as deep as very intensive one-on-one Jungian psychoanalytic work. If you were to actually pay my going hourly rate, for the amount of time you get in this program, it would be very costly. At 250.00 / hour and approximately 20-30 hours per person per P40 session, we would be into the thousands of dollars.

So I am happy and grateful for the Internet, as it allows us to connect in a way that is affordable for you and allows us to be engaged on a daily basis.

Project 40 has healed me and so I have decided to share it as a service to the world under the blessing of my Guru, Mata Amritanandamayi who blessed it in Amritapuri in 2009.

A Necessary Rant:

As a diehard, classically-trained psychoanalyst with eighteen years of analysis and supervision from some of the best Jungian analysts in Zurich, NYC and San Francisco, it’s painful for me to see how so much of the elegance and depth of Jung’s work is lost and misused by those with very little if any actual experience or training (not to mention their own analytic process). Jung says that the unconscious is both beautiful and terrible but not something to “play around with” or take lightly by any means. Would you throw yourself out into the middle of a dark ocean without a reliable person at the helm… or worse, without a boat or a paddle? Unless you’re trying to live the life of Pi, this is probably not wise. The danger of superficial systems that I have seen claiming to explore “shadow work” is frankly downright disturbing when you realize how tricky it is to navigate the depths of one’s unconscious without the proper clinical training, supervision and experience. This is another reason why I am trying to make this work more pervasive as a way to undo some of the damage that has been done to Jung’s work and credibility in so many “new age” and “self-help” circles that have sadly cheapened the work. A complex is something that must be worked at daily and consistently and with a skilled analyst to help you unravel the many layers. It is not something that can be magically “fixed” in one weekend, covered up with medication or removed with a juice cleanse.

You Receive:

*Daily personal emails that I create on that particular day itself (nothing is pre-baked, half-baked or it would lose the essence of tapping into the powerful messages of that particular space and time–and thus lose the power of synchronicity so fundamental to the magic of Jungian therapy).

*A creative and self-expressive journey through the essence of the Sun inhabiting the 12 signs of the Zodiac.

*A system designed to bust through any laziness, blocks, and other BS that keep you from going beyond the normal 10% of mediocre consciousness and self-awareness.

*Daily probing questions that make you stop and reflect in ways that create lasting transformation.

*A powerful collective of kindred souls seeking radical transformation and willing to do the hard work in order to uncover the limitless potential and authenticity buried in the unconscious.

*Accountability partners on a daily basis to keep you inspired and staying on top of your inner work.

*Stopping and expanding time instead of the feeling that another month just flew by without any noticeable change in your life.

*A sacred container built on 18 years of research and private practice with a classically trained Jungian therapist and astrologer.

*40 Days of powerful tools you can use and re-use for the rest of your life that will totally transform your sexuality, your relationships and most importantly your Self.

*Daily astrological guidance and reflection on the collective unconscious influences as revealed by the current astrological weather.

* Jungian insights and techniques you can utilize to delve deeper into your core Self.
* Mythical, metaphysical, and cultural symbolism and reference material related to astrology and Jungian psychology.
* Astrological insights into the moment, so as to tap into the archetypes that are potentiated through our journey,
* Sacred Space with kindred spirits willing to go as deeply as you are.
The Project 40 community, P40 partners, journaling prompts, questions, rituals, and one-on-one support are all designed to help you unleash the courage, the passion and the resources you need to tap into your authentic potential! 

* Private Facebook Community with supportive peer group

* Guided  Meditations and Rituals

* Jungian Active Imagination Meditation Recordings

* Opportunity to receive one-on-one sessions with Sherene and Katelan at a discounted rate during the P40.

I am thrilled to see how much Project 40 has grown and expanded over the past six years. There are only SIX left before we reach the 40 mark and complete the series. The final seven are the pure form and expression of the planets.

Private Sessions
with Sherene Vismaya, M.A.  
and Katelan Foisy

In a private session with Sherene Vismaya:

Sherene’s readings focus on uncovering life themes, relationship patterns, and karmic cycles by interpreting the wisdom of your horoscope in the poetic language of archetypes. The psychic mandala of the horoscope reveals our deepest entrenched soul patterns and psychological complexes. What is the Self engineering in this lifetime? What has the soul come to master? What is our purpose in this incarnation? Who are we at the most fundamental level of our being? If we were fully individuated, who would we be? What would that look like? What is our vast potential in our career, relationships, creative expression? These are just a few questions that the horoscope can answer. The art of the horoscope interpretation is not something one can get from a cookbook computer-generated report. Sherene has eighteen years of experience as a Jungian Analyst and professional astrologer in private practice in New York City, San Francisco and India. 

One reading is often compared to the insight gained in a year or more of therapy sessions. The horoscope is that powerful of a tool to self understanding. At the end of Jung’s life he said he wished he had studied more astrology as it is an invaluable and illimitable source of information about the Self.

We'll focus on:
Attraction, Relationship patterns and pitfalls, Money, Self-Love, Self-Image, Sexuality via:
Your Natal VENUS, Aspects and House Rulerships
Key Venus Returns and Venus Rx cycles throughout your life and how they influence your relationship patterns.
Progressed Venus Cycles

In a private session with Katelan Foisy:

Whether your at a crossroads, trying to forge an already presented
path, or about to cross the finish line, a little divine guidance can
help. Katelan uses 5 decks, to create an in depth reading catered to
your needs, your goals, and your desires. The first deck offers
practical answers to pressing questions, we create a road map to
navigate. The second deck condenses the reading into a main energy,
the third brings three special messages for you to meditate on, the
fourth and animal guide and helpful questions when life throws a few
pebbles in your path, and the fifth a little fortune telling to what
you can look forward to. Together we will create a system and ritual
for you to best navigate this 40 day journey as well as useful
information and tools for creating your desires into reality.

Katelan received her first deck (Rider Waite) when she was just 12 years old and began reading that day.  From 2005-2007 she read at Magickal Realms in the Bronx alonside many wonderful spiritualists and upon leaving in 2007 started her own practice.  She has read for numerous people around the globe and has a strong following of both online and off. She is the co-founder of Beneath the Half Moon with Sherene Vismaya, held new and full moon circles at the Edgar Cayce Center, and travelled extensively with tarot in hand. Katelan is a Taurus, with Leo rising and a Moon in Capricorn

Hear from others about the Transformative Experience of Project 40!

  • My experience with p40 has been completely transformative. Sherene creates a deeply healing, consistent and structured space that makes it possible to surrender to a profound psychologically transformative space while still staying grounded in daily life. This balance and the daily guidance creates an opportunity to really integrate the work in a way that makes lasting change. Sherene writes the daily guidance each day and this keeps the work inspired and relevant and gives it a sense of immediacy that keeps me moving forward. Sherene is a very graceful and compassionate guide who is willing to be present with you and go as deeply into the work as you're willing to go, this presence is one of the deepest gifts of p40.

  • "Project 40 has helped me uncover fears and desires, clarify intentions, and bring awareness to my life. Like magic, the process has helped me to 'live the questions' to listen to myself and the world around me deeply, and to reflect. My heart has opened through the last three rounds, and thought I feel more humbled, I also feel more grounded."
    Jessica Larsen
    Los Angeles, CA
  • It's hard to put into words how amazing p40 is and the last one was extra amazing for me (it's my second). I think the journaling questions along with the archetypes just gave us a tremendous amount of material to work with. It was a very creative process. And the icing on the cake is just receiving the daily emails and reading about how your lives were intersecting into the whole thing. It was just fantastic! You're really sharing amazing gifts! Probably the most powerful part creatively for me were the meditations. I really took a deep journey each time and it opened my mind and eyes. 
    Roxanne Kennedy
    New York, NY
  • "Project 40 is a great way to start the day. Being in it is like being in a magic circle. Everyone is connected in a certain and inexplicable way and there are lots of synchronicities happening with Sherene and the other people in Project 40. I have found solutions to many questions, I would have been totally alone with otherwise"
    Elisandra Sevenstar
    Udaipur, India
  • Sessions with Sherene provide comfort and encouragement in a safe and sacred space.  The P40 Intensives offer the opportunity to extend one's work into a private cybergroup setting (participation can be as involved as personally desired - no pressure!), with specific esoteric themes upon which to focus. Surprising and often amazing revelations abound! The personal transformations can be subtle, can be profound - but are always unique and ever-fascinating. Sherene's methods are progressive and dynamic, and help to manifest positive changes in personal attitudes toward life and this world
    Carla Kali Ma Salls
    New York, NY
  • "Project 40 has changed my life. I have been in various forms of therapy and analysis since I was a teenager, and as helpful as that has been, I have not found anything more useful than working with Sherene in Project 40s.
    You will be amazed by the changes that occur within 40 days!!"
