On June 5 or 6, depending on where on the planet you live, Venus will cross the face of the Sun. As it merges with the Sun, all that Venus represents (values, desires, personal needs, love, etc) will be transformed by the Sun or will transform the Sun itself! What does our Sun represent to our psyche astrologically? Some say it’s our essence; others say its our ego/personality; some say Sun represents father energy or male energy (while the Moon represents female energy–in that way) and others say the Sun represents our life purpose. In all models, all planets revolve around that Sun and a healthy Sun in our psyche is what helps us feel whole, complete and happy. No matter which way we see the Sun astrologically, there’s about to be some transformation through the Venus occulation that is occurring this week!
This planetary alignment of Venus crossing over the face of the Sun is called an occultation [see image]–some simply call it the ‘transit of Venus’.
Venus visibly seen in front of the Sun is a symbol for the rise of feminine energy in a current patriarchal world; so male/female issues and patriarchal values versus spiritual could be brought forward.
VENUS-SUN SQUARING MARS AT THE SAME TIME
To emphasize this even further, during the occultation, Venus/Sun will be forming a square to Mars. Squares are what are called ‘hard’ and ‘challenging’ aspects, and Mars is the male counterpart to Venus.
To add to the intensity, this occurs within a day of a Lunar Eclipse, which will affect us emotionally.
This “occultation” of Venus over the Sun is similar to an eclipse, but Venus will not totally block our view, rather, she will appear like a dot crossing over the face of the sun. [see image above]
“Although Venus and Sun meet up every couple of years, we have only witnessed this event six times in recent human history. The next transit on June 5, 6 will be our seventh observance.” –Rose Marcus
PS — Venus is in Gemini retrograde, so there will be dialogue about these topics this week, even if some of it may be internal! Roles of male versus female needs in relationships; my values versus your values; patriarchical values versus matriarchal/spiritual values; consensus level consciousness and values versus spiritual level; new world values may very well be implanted, seeded, boosted or reawakened the consciousness of the human at this time. How will it affect your personal life? Stay tuned, it should be an interesting week ahead!
