Transit of Venus June 5& 6, 2012

Coming to a sky near you, today and tomorrow…a beautiful, celestial crossing.  If you know anything about astrology or the meaning and power of the planets, what does Transit of Venus symbolize for YOU? In the scientific world, Venus Transits are historically of great scientific importance as they were used to gain the first realistic estimates of the size of the Solar System.  Transits happen when a planet crosses between Earth and the sun.  Only Mercury and Venus, which are closer to the sun than our planet, can undergo this unusual alignment. In the New Age perspective, Venus is an Earth or Earthy planet, so what she delivers (or takes away) is manifestly and concretely felt.
