Once again 2012 is bringing on powerful celestial alignments. We have a on June 4. During this eclipse the moon will be partially or about one- third covered by the Earth’s umbral shadow.
This Transit of Venus is so rare it will not occur again until the year 2117. These types of alignments come in pairs and the mate to this alignment occurred in June 2004 and after Tuesday, it will not happen again for another 100 years.
This alignment is different than usual because Venus will track across the sun and will be observable on seven continents. The transit will last around 7 hours beginning around 3 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time.
"The sun represents our ego and sense of self and Venus represents what we want," says colleague, Laguna Niguel resident, astrologer and author, "When Venus crosses in front of sun, what we want becomes more important than anything else. So our focus will be on what we want and it's up to us to make it happen."
Lunar Eclipse Impact
It is interesting that a Lunar eclipse is taking place before this big Venus alignment. The moon is about the secret places in our hearts. It reflects our emotions and hidden facets. When there is an Lunar eclipse our inner life ‘the moon’ is impacted by the Earth ‘our body and physical environment’ and the sun which is about ‘God, and spirit.’
You may be noticing now that people around you are guilty of ‘blurting. They simply can’t help but to expose their truths. You can see it in the media, your work, family and relationships. Heck, you can even see it with yourself. This eclipse coming before the Venus Transit is going to intensify that effect.
People will find that the part of them that really wants to be released will come out. This can be a beautiful thing on one hand or a tumultuous affair on another level. Spiritually, mentally and physically, many people have lived in a programmed illusion of doing what they think they should. Now the alignment of the universe is asking each of us to live our truths.
For most people it will mean things like changing what they eat, wear, or do. For some it will shift their relationships. Many will take that they've always wanted or change their vocations. Others will become more authentic to their souls while some, of course, will deny any such things.
Some people can become disoriented and out of balance with the intensities of these alignments as we have seen with some unfortunate headlines. If it causes discomfort please seek help from friends, counselors and health professionals. These shifts in 2012 are really not about destroying us but enabling all of us to have a different type of world.
What’s This Venus Transit All About?
The planet is named for the Roman goddess of love, Venus. However, many civilizations have had similar myths. Babylonian astrologers in 1581 B.C. in the ‘Venus Tablet of Ammisaduqa’ called the planet the ‘bright queen of the sky.’
Venus’s affinity is about affection in its many forms from the love of a child, to friendship and romantic relationships. The energy of this alignment asks us to look at how we love and who we love. It will bring up feelings from past connections, mates, friends and boyfriends.
In fact, many may be feeling nostalgic for an old beau or have a nudge to look up and search for someone from the past. It is good that the feelings are coming up to be released but consideration of your actions is advised. A good way to release old stored feelings is to write the person and say what you need, and burn the letter. Don’t send it out, just release and heal. Of course, some are going to be actually contacting those old mates and well, it will get interesting.
Venus is making tracks across the sun this transit and the sun represents the soul. This alignment is about how the soul loves. Many times our relationships are based on what we should do, and who we should be with instead of what the soul really needs.
The energy of will come up very strongly. In spiritualty a soul mate is someone with whom you have a deep level spiritual connection. It focuses on the fact that we have had many life times and reoccurring connections with certain people over the course of those lives.
We all have met someone with whom we have felt an instant connection, and had a feeling of knowing them on a deep level. There is almost a chemical or electrical draw that can feel amazing or be a bit overwhelming. The soul mate connection can almost feel addictive for some. come to mind in an extreme instance.
Most people think soul mates are only lovers but they can also be children, brothers, sisters, friends, strangers, and co-workers. Unfortunately, they can also be someone else’s mate where therein lies a problem. Yet in some way we are all connected in the universal hologram.
The intensity of soul mate relationships are about reflection and revelation. A soul mate will show us what is good about us, and also what we need to change. It can be powerful and beautiful or sometimes hurtful. It can be cruel because the lessons that come up can make one or both abandon the lesson, and walk away from each other. No worries, we have many soul mates and with free will, we can all continue to learn and grow.
This alignment will force us to look within ourselves, and into each other’s hearts. The key really is about love, healing and most importantly, forgiveness of ourselves and others.
Yes these powerful alignments are going to bring up some negative energy just as a boil needs to release the infection. They will also release beautiful healing energy as well. The key is retrospection, tolerance, and consideration as we walk this path in 2012.
Good luck on the journey. Peace and blessings!
