The next celestial event, the Venus Transit, will occur on June 5 or 6, depending on your time zone. Venus went retrograde on May 12, just a week or so before the Ring of Fire:Solar Eclipse. This Venus event coincides with the Full Moon, which is also a Lunar Eclipse! Venus goes back direct on June 27. You are probably aware of what Mercury Retrograde means. Just imagine the same chaos, only instead of dealing with communication and technology, we are dealing with love and relationships!
WHAT IS IT?
From NASA we learn....
Introduction to Transits of Venus
Transits of Venus across the disk of the Sun are among the rarest of planetary alignments. Indeed, only six such events have occurred since the invention of the telescope (1631, 1639, 1761, 1769, 1874 and 1882). The next two transits of Venus will occur on 2004 June 08 and 2012 June 06.
The principal events occurring during a transit are characterized by contacts. The event begins with contact I which is the instant when the planet's disk is externally tangent with the Sun. The entire disk of the Venus is first seen at contact II when the planet is internally tangent with the Sun. During the next several hours, Venus gradually traverses the solar disk at a relative angular rate of approximately 4 arc-min/hr. At contact III, the planet reaches the opposite limb and is once again internally tangent with the Sun. The transit ends at contact IV when the planet's limb is externally tangent to the Sun. Contacts I and II define the phase called ingress while contacts III and IV are known as egress. Greatest transit is the instant of minimum angular separation between Venus and the Sun as seen from Earth's geocenter."
NASA: THE 2012 TRANSIT OF VENUS
To Be Published in Observer's Handbook 2012, Royal Astronomical Society of Canada
The transit or passage of a planet across the face of the Sun is a relatively rare occurrence. As seen from Earth, only transits of Mercury and Venus are possible. On average, there are 13 transits of Mercury each century. In contrast, transits of Venus occur in pairs with more than a century separating each pair.
The last Venus transit was in 2004 so the second event of the pair will occur on Wednesday, June 6 (Tuesday, June 5 from the Western Hemisphere). The entire event will be widely visible from the western Pacific, eastern Asia and eastern Australia as shown in Figure 1. Most of North and Central America, and northern South America will witness the beginning of the transit (on June 5) but the Sun will set before the event ends. Similarly, observers in Europe, western and central Asia, eastern Africa and western Australia will see the end of the event since the transit will already be in progress at sunrise from those locations.
Table 2 and Table 3 list predicted contact times and corresponding altitudes of the Sun for locations throughout Canada and the United States, respectively. Table 4 provides similar predictions for a number of cities around the world.

TRUE SIDEREAL PERSPECTIVE
THE LUNAR PLANNER by Nick Anthony Fiorenza
Venus transiting the Sun on June 8, 2004

Venus is the Roman name for the Greek Aphrodite, goddess of love, grace, beauty and sexual rapture. Venus has also been called the "jewel of the sky"; "Eosphorus as the morning star and Hesperus as the evening star"; from a modern day astronomer's view, "Earth's sister planet"; and from an astrologer's view, the "compliment to Mars."
Other cultural names for Venus include: the Babylonian Ishtar; the Syro-Palestinian goddess Ashtart; the Aztec: Tlahuizcalpantecuhtli (meaning "Lord of the House of Dawn."), an apparition of Quetzalcoatl, the feathered serpent; the Maya: Kukulcan (Venus was the Mayan patron of warfare, with several battles coinciding with significant Venus alignments); and the Norse Sif, noted for her "conjugal fidelity." Aside from the asteroids, Venus is the only main planet named after a goddess--sorry to say for our soul-ar system.
Please NOTE that the Kemetic/Ancient African Egytpian and ORIGINAL counterpart was left off of this list:. This would be HETERU!

The Venus Transit Theme
There are several factors defining the theme of this event:
- The Lunar Cycle in which the Venus transit occurs. (The Venus Transit occurs in the May 20, 2012 Lunar Cycle: A Solar Annular Eclipse)
- Where in the Lunar Cycle the transit occurs (just after the Full Moon Partial Eclipse in Ophiuchus).
- The addditional geometrical aspects to Venus at the time of the transit and other significant planetary aspects.
Kursa of Eridanus, Rigel of Orion and the Shield of Orion are the primary conjoining stars of the Venus-Sun alignment (Venus Transit). Kursa
marks the beginning of Eridanus, the River of Life. Kursa, Rigel and its immediate surounding cosmology define the theme of the event.
So, this event takes place with Full Moon in Ophiuchus/Scorpio as well as Venus in Taurus. When we look at the Moon, we will be looking towards
the center of our Milky Way Galaxy.
Astrological Meaning of Venus Transit
According to Alison Chester-Lambert, we are due for a Spiritual and Technological revolution. She reports that this is what has occurred during the three recent Venus Transits.
The Venus Transits & The Return of the Divine Feminine By Govinda
Govinda is obviously looking at the energy of Venus and Gemini, which is ruled by Mercury.
Astrologically, Venus represents our relationships with others. Communication is a major factor in all of our relationships. Whenever Venus eclipsed the Sun in past recorded history, there was a major breakthrough in communications. For example, at the time of the last Venus eclipse in 1874, the Transatlantic Telegraph Cable was completed that created the first intercontinental communications by wire between the East and the West. In 1761, another year of a Venus eclipse, there was a collaboration of astronomers at 77 observation points from all over the world to determine the distance from Earth to the Sun.
Today, we have expanded global communications for the masses through the Internet and satellite systems. Our ability to communicate with each other worldwide is continually expanding. The questions now become: What are we communicating to our world – love or fear? and, How is our media (the Internet, computer games, the movie industry, cell phones, etc.), affecting society as a whole?
The Divine Feminine Awakens Venus eclipsing the Sun represents an awakening of the Divine Feminine energies in our world. For thousands of years, the world has been ruled by patriarchal societies. These masculine rulers have created wars, power struggles, destruction, pollution, fear, pain, separation and famine. They have shown little or no respect for feminine wisdom or our Mother Earth.
One of the keys to accessing Divine Feminine healing energy is through forgiveness. Only when all is forgiven will total love be available to us. We must forgive others and ourselves for all of the perceived wrongs that have ever been done. We can heal ourselves if we are willing to feel and express all of our emotions, and then to forgive ourselves and others for all that we have perceived as wrong. This process will liberate us from the bondage of our emotional pain. Forgiveness is the key to releasing ourselves from our past. When we are liberated from our past and live fully in the “now” our true happiness may be realized and our power to create is maximized.
ESOTERIC SIGNIFICANCE OF VENUS TRANSIT OF THE SUN by ElRah
Venus is regarded as the most mysterious and occult of all planets and can be considered as a sister planet to the Earth. Her rulership over Nature, love, magnetism, harmony, beauty, arts and music indicates the innate quality of energy that will be magnified by her transit across the face of the Sun. The Solar radiance shines through the Venusian lens at this time to enhance the qualities of Venus on Earth and influence people to realise a deeper accord with her energies.

How will this affect your life and relationships?
The energies experience at this time will be beneficial for artistic activities, expressing love and creating greater harmony in your relationships. You may even find inspiration flowing brightly at this time and be captivated by beauty in all its forms with music favoured as an expression of this planetary union. You will discover deeper insight into your heart and re-kindle a forgotten gift of artistic talent or some aspect of yourself that you sacrificed as being impractical in a former time. You are open to experiencing the depths of your authentic self as opposed to your identity that you formed in order to be accepted in the world now.
This can be challenging for others around you as you will want to cut loose from restrictions that prevent you from expressing this deeper self. In a sense you will want to begin again, taking a fresh start that allows you to change and be more fulfilled through expressing what you love, not what others find acceptable. You can take heart in the faith that you are heading in the right direction and accept that there will be confusion about your direction now. Your actions will seem unreasonable to others and there may be a sudden release of pent up energy from deep in your psyche. You will be flying through clouds and unable to see the earth now, using your heart as a compass to plot your course through the unknown as you journey toward towards the true expression of your authentic self.
For many this is the opportunity to look at parts of their lives that do not work, where pain and suffering have kept them small and fear has prevented them from challenging the safe monotony that has circumscribed their opportunity for heart’s content. The change can be quite dramatic as the pent up passion finds voice and a sudden courage of the heart stands up for a more meaningful life than the one you have allowed yourself to become you.
If you are sick and tired of living a life made dull by the poor choices to please others and you have submerged creative fire in your belly, now is the time to make the changes necessary to live a freer, more authentic life.
The most important realm for authentic self-expression at this time is in your personal relationships. Whatever you are hiding needs to be expressed now, allowing your truth to be heard. What is standing between you and a deeper experience of love are the secrets you have kept, the forces of thought that separate, avoid and aim to please. The power of true love radiating from the Sun and Venus will illuminate that which stands between you and your heart’s full expression. If you are honest with yourself and others now you have a great opportunity to regenerate your love life, and find a more lasting harmony in all your relationships.
The feminine empowered
Women in particular will find they are becoming an active voice for challenging the structure of relationship now. The feminine is tired of being sequestered into a “business as usual” structured idea of relationship without true love expressing itself in their daily lives. Women will find that their arc of emotion will increase as they challenge the male to be more present and authentic. They crave more love, want to be cherished and have a deeper connection with their heart. Men who avoid emotion, rationalise emotional behaviour and fail to rise to their woman’s true need will find hell breaking loose through their banshee lover as she claims her divine feminine power under Venusian rays.
Here's to a happy viewing and experience of this amazing transit!
May the Balance of Maat, the Wisdom of Aset, and the Power of Hetheru be with You in All Ways and for All of Your Days!
