Heavenly Signs: The Centennial Transit of Venus
By Hwaa Irfan
Astronomers, astrologists, comoslogists, and New Agers have been gearing up to the expected moment of June 05/6th 2012. NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope will observe using the moon as a mirror. Eighteenth century astronomers (June 6, 1761) would travel far to view the transit, becuase they believed Venus provided the clue to the size of the solar system. At that time, the Seven Years’ War was tearing Europe apart.
Space.com looks back on history and informs:
Captain James Cook (1728-1779), called by some “The Great Ocean’s greatest explorer,” observed the 1769 transit from the black sand beach now called Venus Point, northeast of Papeete, on the island of Tahiti. Cook was specifically chosen because he was among the very few who knew how to work out longitude. During the voyage, he opened his secondary secret orders, which revealed he was to search for “Terra Australis Incognita,” the unknown southern land (known to us as Australia) and claim it for Britain.
And William Harkness (1837-1903), then director of the U.S. Naval Observatory, wrote these prophetic words on the eve of the 1882 transit:
“There will be no other transits of Venus till the twenty-first century of our era has dawned upon the earth. When the last transit occurred the intellectual world was awakening from the slumber of ages, and that wondrous scientific activity, which has led to our present advanced knowledge, was just beginning. What will be the state of science when the next transit season arrives God only knows. Not even our children’s children will live to take part in that astronomy of that day.”
That day has arrived, God Willing!
As the Sun pumps out solar radiation at the height of its 11 year cycle, and its polaric flip, and as the Earth moves through its polaric flip in 2012, the second phase of Venus’s Transit will take place. The bright night skies we have grown accustomed to in recent months, will appear dull for a while.
The global tensions as a result of the universal push for change is expected to take another leap into unconditional love in the conditional world that has been driving us all to the edge at times. When the last transit took place in 2004, 226,408 people died as a result of the ensuing Tsunami. For what is in fact an eclipse, the transit takes place in pairs like clockwork, 8 years apart!
This is when the planet of Venus passes directly in front of the Sun from our earthy perspective, looking like a slowly moving small black dot. This rare moment not expected to be seen again until 2117 will be visible all around the Earth at some point in Venus’ transition, but to observe it requires protection of the eyes as most of the Sun will by visible. The transit is expected to take a period of 7 hours.
With much attention paid to Mayan prophecy, and 2012-06-02, the Mayans (there are still some alive today) associated the ennsuing conjunction of Venus and the Pleiades with the ending of the Mayan calendar, which unlike what scaremongerers woudl have us believe, is not the end of live on our Earth.
For those that are ready and open, the collective human consciousness will take a leap towards that higher goal. It is at times like these we are reminded that everything in the Universe is connected, and therefore influences each other, including us humans. We have been experiencing as much with the increased solar activity, hence auroras, and therefore the impact on the Earth’s electromagnetic field, and the human energy field. However, nothing good comes easy, otherwise what would we learn. It has been a difficult birthing process for humanity, as humanity has been oblidged to face its miscreations on a personal, and a societal level. This means that all those supporting structures of our old ways, naturally has to fall as we have been witnessing the serial global crises taking place around the world since 2004 with the most apparent sign being the collapse of the global economic system which began visibly in 2008.
The planet of Light, beauty, unconditional love, will be transiting our consciousness as represented by our Sun. It is no wonder the some of the ancients used to mistakenly worship the Sun for without the Sun, as witnessed with those who experience Seasonal Disorder, we become depressed. The Sun as a tool of the Creator animates life on Earth from the food we eat to our souls, and it is our soul that seeks the purge that the Sun responds to.
As Venus unusually transits right across the Sun instead of up high, an electromagnetic force is created as when any two animate objects come in close proximity to another. Venus seeks fulfillment, but Venus is in retrograde which means the fulfillment must first take place on the soul level and the level of the subconscious. This will in turn affect human relations which will become more fulfilling. That is becuase Venus is in the constellation of Gemini – Venus transits always occurs in Gemini or Saggitarius. In Gemini, the revolution is a spiritual one that seeks knowlege, and understanding. This is born out by the Venus Transits of:
1631 to 1639 – The Catholic Church was challenged by Galileo’s ascertion that the Sun, and not the Earth is the center of our world
1761 to 1769 – The Anglican Church was ousted as the American Revolution brewed
1874 to 1882 – Theosophical Society and the Christian Science was established at a time when the inventor Tesla brought electricity into our world with the pure intention of benefiting all mankind
Even the global elite are following up on Venus Transit through a series of rituals that is more likely an aim to continue their domination on Earth as they believe deeply in occultism.
As London hosts the Olympics in the year of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in celebration a co-ordinated project to light 2,012 beacons of fire on all the high places of the UK on the 4th June 2012.
The Hudson Bay represents to colonialists one of the foundations of their empire. On June 4 -6 (to be safe), the Enterprise (oldest member of the space-shuttle fleet not Star Trek), will be towed up the Hudson River to remain on show at the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum, in Manhattan. This mirrors the earthly Venus Transit.
The pathway of the Venus Transit falls between the head of Orion, our Galactic Center, the Milky Way, through to Gemini. The Milky Way represents the Hudson River, Orion, the Torch bearer represents the Statue of Liberty, and Gemini the Twin Towers, that was. As the brilliance of Venus in the night sky grows dimmer through the month of June, when its brilliance returns after the Transit/eclipse, it will be the Morning Star once again, but to occultists this is referred to as ‘Lucifer’ when the Morning Star appears on the otherside of the Sun. June 4-7 is the Queen Elizabeth of England’s official birthday with Rothschild’s Olympic torch arriving in London in late July, for the tightest security set up witnessed for any Olympics.
All of this while the Sun is between the horns of Taurus indicating the end of old foundations! Jupiter is inTaurus until November, emphasizing money/material issues. It is about planning, planting, and nurturing before one can reap.
Regardless of what they have up their sleeves, the Venus Transit takes place in Gemini, which also means the reconciling of opposites:
- male vs female
- Material vs, spirituality
- The youth vs. the old
- The haves’ and have nots
- The past vs. the present
- Conscious vs. the subconscious etc.
In other words there is no more room for polarization, separation, exploitation and oppression. For those who remain so inclined, they will remain stuck in that cycle, but those who dont will move on. With Venus in retrograde until June 27, 2012, their will be a tendeny to evaluate what is really important, of value, the ability to discern worth in order to discard what is meaningless or no longer serves a beneficial purpose in one’s life. Unresolved issues will come to the surface, and if one of those issues is the 1% then one will realize that they no longer serve a meaningful purpose in the lives of the 99%, especially if one has not been appreciated! This amkes relating to one’s sef easier, and open relations with others more likely, and more fulfilling for Venus is about connecting, and retrograde in Gemini, which represents the Mind, we are being called to open our hearts and Minds, to begin anew on a more wholesome, compassionate basis, to do away with old patterns of perception so that we can avail ourselves to more of what life has to offer – and we cant do that if we are continually putting things and people into little boxes, slapping labels on them, and relegating them accordingly, including ourselves. How much of ourselves do we store away in the bottom drawer of our subconscious, and how much struggling ensues to maintain it that way as it threatens to jump out and turn us upside down!
Instead open the door of self discovery and ask:
- Do I enjoy in myself
- Do I enjoy my life
- What makes me unhappy
- What is it that really frightens m
- What do I find beautiful in myself?
- What do I value?
- What relaxes me?
- Do I enjoy what I do?
- Look at the things that you surround yourself with, including the things that you wear, and ask what does it add to my life
- What do I neglect about myself?
- Am I being sincere with myself, and with others
The Venus Transit represents the second large step up the ladder of humanity in 2012, after the Solar Ring of Fire eclipse in May 2012. We can take it all as hog wash, or listen for what holds true, and if not, wait and find out while we keep on doing what we have been doing, and getting what we get!
