VENUS Transit of The SUN, 2012

Perhaps you’ve already heard the buzz, about our currently retrograding gal Venus. As she is in the state of review while taking her backwards steps through Gemini, the sign that either unites or unties it all, she is going to do some pretty magical flirting with our mighty Sun 05 June, 9:09pmEDT/6:09pmPDT. These two benevolent planets team up at the very same 15th degree within The Twins for an astrological and astronomical event not seen since 2004, and one that only occurs twice in 8 years over an approximate 122 or 105-year period.

Do your research and you’ll discover The Mayans deeply understood this rare alignment of the Earth, Venus and the Sun to be such a powerful gateway to receive some real positive energy and channels of change from above down here below. Taking our planet of love, harmony and pleasure and letting her pair up exactly with the almighty Sun, and her energy is a force that will emit incredible things to embrace. However, even though, it’s all about to really start happening in Gemini right now with our recent Solar Eclipse 20 May and Jupiter about to jovially make the Gemini’s smile- you can not leave out that she isn’t looking where she is going.

There is still review to be had within the ongoing Venus Retrograde in Gemini and the means that it relates to our individual lives. Equally it is interesting to consider Monday 04 June’s Lunar Eclipse at the 14 degree of Sagittarius which offers up to aim in release and letting go period for over 6 months from the very opposing area of the life. As our North Node also has been transiting with The Archer since March 2011 -casting off a period of new emotional understanding and alignment where it expands your Zodiac Pie- the South Node in The Twins has been preparing the stage that Gemini is about to give a truly almost unbelievable show upon. The Nodes move on into the Taurus/Scorpio opposition for an 18month pass upon 29 August.

Jupiter gets excited to intellectualize and bring growth to The Twins starting 11 June- but Venus will stay in reflection  mode until 27 June. So as this rare transit of Venus crossing the Sun occurs at 15 degrees Gemini- the magic from it, in how it will be able to move us forward, will be on a slight delay. After she goes Direct, she will cross back over this 15 degree point upon 19 July, when we’ll also be experiencing a New Moon in Cancer. This is when you’ll receive some true pa-pow from seeing the continual positive affects from the Gemini slice of life.  (and yes… while Mercury will be Retrograde again by the 14 July, we’ll save The Messengers’ review period for another blog entry.)

Numerologically, The Chaldeans perspective of numbers casts more insightful light. First, the 15th degree of Gemini point- with the 15 representing ‘The Magician.’ What is more than likely the most important thing to visualize upon the alignment of our Sun and Venus is the image of having a midas touch where your natal 15 degree Gemini falls within the birth chart. You have magic to sow from this place for quite some time. Harmony is here as the 15 also reduces to a singular 6, a Venus guided cipher.  Goal setting is a wise way to spend some time upon 05 June. And don’t forget to DREAM BIG.

Right after those Nodes go on to get emotional with The Bull and The Eagle, Jupiter will be triggering this very same 15 Gemini degree point from 05 to 19 September. Get ready for some true adventure to be alive and very very well in this part of your life. The seeds of those big dreams you will plant now for the Universe to sow will start to see a little happiness sprouting up to start to SMILE the MILES for you.

Now, there is this pair understanding that happens with this auspicious occasion of our Sun and Venus bond -give or take every 105 or 122 years- so now we are going to go back a little ways to 2004. Oddly enough- 08 June 2004, Venus was also Retrograding in Gemini at the 17th degree when it last met up with the Sun there. Jupiter- was over in Virgo soon to form a square in the whole planetary picture, very close to where the current Mars in Virgo is at present.

Remembering that the 17’s ‘The Star of the Magi’ presence was part of the last Sun/Venus alignment, what was evolving from this part of the life in 2004 was a true learning from the experience time in the life. There is much from this time that will never be forgotten in its’ significance, so it is wise to remember what wisdom wishes to in a sense, remain eternalized.
With the 2004 17 deg Gemini and now 2012 15 deg Gemini Sun Venus alignment degree points so close, it is well advised to get out your memory banks and see what you can relate about what is happening in your life today, and the journey to get here now from 8 years ago. Whatever Current Personal Year Cycle you were within 2004, you will be experiencing that very same energy again one year from now, as another cycle of completion now begins as well. So keep pondering those IDEAS as AIDES, and you will discover how The Twins wish to make a UNITE and not the UNTIE.
