The Venus Transit
The Venus Transit
What does this mean to us? Everyone is aware of eclipses, be they of the sun and moon but rarely do we think about the occurrence of other planets coming into an alignment worth noting. Every one hundred years or so Venus steps between us and the sun and it happens twice with a gap of eight years. The last one happened in June 2004. I was lucky enough to know about it and have some old protective glasses left over form the 1999 eclipse and had a good look at it.
This year, having been the brightest star in the sky over the winter and making those beautiful conjunctions with Jupiter and the moon its only fitting that she should still be in our minds for this momentous event. The sun is literally going to illuminate and magnify its pure energy of love for us to feel even if we can't get to see it.
The year for me has been a highly energetically charged one and I am hoping that this is going to continue to make 2012 a full on year. I feel that if we are going to step into and embrace this new energy of respect and love to all with the understanding that we are all part of one body, one human race, we need to start behaving as one. To do this we need to fully respect and love ourselves. We can only do this if we completely clear out our closet of all negative ways of working and remove all old fears and pain. That means a lot of work for all but I feel that this event is going to fast track the way forward for many of us.
As usual the great British weather often gets in the way of our enjoyment of this transit visually but I think that perhaps that's part of it. We need to stop relying on our eyes and begin to feel with our hearts. We need to trust the wisdom our hearts have to offer and stop narrowing our vision by just using our eyes and begin to use our insight. Venus can do a great deal to help us with this, being the Goddess of Love and holding a very powerful tool that we have neglected to connect with for too long.
Please join me, even if its in your sleep and connect with this once in a life time occurrence.
