Venus Transits the Sun

Astrology transits are very specific but their effects can often seem very generalized and less easy to pinpoint.
For example, today is a very special day - Venus transits the Sun (something that won't happen again until 2117). It's not Mars that will appear to cross the face of the Sun, it's VENUS, so Venus stuff becomes paramount now. However, how it manifest for the individual, the company, the couple, the country varies enormously.
Since the Sun is the Life Giver of our planetary family, the energy that holds it all together (symbolic of our "Source"), any planet that comes into contact with it, in the skies and within our own Birth Charts, is given added emphasis, power and importance.
Many Astrologers are discussing this once-in-a-lifetime alignment, as a return of the Divine Feminine. That sounds all very dramatic, but it does touch on the vibration of Venus: Love, as opposed to Mars: War.
From this end, I see this as a time when we're urged (and reminded) to Bring More Love Into Our Lives.
What does that mean exactly?
It means continuing to Love others, even those who don't love you,
never loved you, can't love you
or even those who appear to hate you.
It means finding things to do that you Love to do,
even amidst dark times - lost jobs, broken marriages,
loneliness, poverty, illness.
It means loving yourself more right here right now today,
regardless of how you look, how you feel
and how others are treating you.
It means upping your Self-Worth,
knowing you're part of the Divine Plan,
even if your small life seems pointless,
empty or without meaning.
It means Treating Others as You Would Like to Be Treated -
even if, in your eyes, it seems they don't deserve it.
It means Being Open to Receiving
instead of walling off your heart
out of self-protection and past pain.
It means Building Bridges more,
even with those you have a 'beef' with,
or those who aren't in agreement with 'your way' of life,
and in return those whose lifestyles
don't fit your paradigm of
'what should be'.
It means that Love (Venus) should eclipse our Egos (Sun) so that we can once again unite under the umbrella of Unity, instead of being separated by our separate selves. While the Ego is the Sun in Astrology and shines through the fragments of the 12 signs (and thus doesn't see the 'whole picture' - how can you if you're always seeing life through the lens of Cancer, Scorpio, Taurus etc?
Love is at the core, and found via Venus, located now in Gemini.This transit promises to deliver to those who are ready, the cosmic code of Divine Love - a reminder that we are all one, that we are, always have been and always will be loved and that despite the appearances of separation and LACK of love, that real true love is beneath it all.
If you're seeking Love only in the Human Realm, you open yourself up to dissatisfaction, disappointment, let-downs and failed expectations. Why? Because we're all on a Human Journey this lifetime, and thus things won't always go 'according to (our) plan' in this world (the world that the Kabbalists call the 1%).
In the real world - the world behind this one (the 99%), we are always Loved, we come from a place of Love and so we ARE Love. Those who seek Divine Love, the love of something Bigger, Higher, More Connected, will feel full even in this world of transition.
The kicker is this: How much do you think you're worth?
Do you feel deserving of Love even with all your current 'flaws'? Can you let Love in despite being hurt before? Can you turn your attention away from seeking Love in your fellow humans and decide once and for all to be your own Source of Love - giving, with no expectation of a return?
If you can, you'll become of the Earth's Divine Spokespeople - Emissaries of Venus, downloading more of her much-needed energy to a planet in the throes of social upheaval, change and collapse to make way for something better.
That's my take on this Venus-Sun transit. It will only happen once in our lifetime, so let's celebrate the Love we have felt in our lives, celebrate the Love we desire in our lives (which is already calling it forth), and find ways to bring even more Love back in to the darker places in our own lives - in our relationships with friends, family, partners, neighbors, strangers.
June 5-6 kicks off a special Love-Fest on Planet Earth and you're invited.
