2012 Venus Transit Eclipse Portal
This is a good archetypal background on the transit of Venus by Tom Lescher:
“We are now on the eve of the 2nd transit of a pair, after which there will be no other till the 21st century of our era has dawned upon the earth, & June flowers are blooming in 2004 (& 2012). When the last transit season occurred the intellectual world was awakening from the slumber of ages, & 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/dess only knows. Not even our children’s children will live to take part in the astronomy of that day. As for ourselves, we have to do with the present”. – William Harkness, U.S. Naval Observatory 1882

Every 120 yrs or so a dark spot glides across the Sun. Small, inky-black, almost perfectly circular, it’s no ordinary sunspot. – NASA Science News

May 20/12 a portal opened with a powerful Pleiadean alignment “Ring of Fire Solar Eclipse” (click here May 20 eclipse http://conta.cc/Kf5HW0, click here for a general discussion of the powerful gateway we now find ourselves in http://conta.cc/Kf5KB4) This portal now culminates on June 4/5, 2012 with a Partial Lunar Eclipse & historic Venus Transit across the face of the Sun. The Venus Transit is a predictable yet rare astronomical event that occurs about every 100 yrs. The Venus Transit occurs in pairs, like bookends, 8 yrs apart. We experienced the Venus Transit in June/04, this is its companion. In this newsletter I explore the *meaning* of the Venus Transit as well as the Partial Lunar Eclipse which occurs the day before the Transit. Here is an invitation to listen for the words of The Goddess as she speaks to our times. ~ Many Blessings ~ Carol Ann Ciocco ~ Three Moon Ocean
Part 1: Esoteric Meaning of the Venus Transit
Transits of Venus are among the rarest of all predictable astronomical events, happening only 4 times every 243 yrs. Careful observation of Transits of Venus in 1639, 1761, 1769, 1874 & 1882 allowed 1st reliable determination of the distance from the Earth to the Sun, & consequently of the scale of our Solar System. Imagine a scientific experiment that required 243 yrs & several generations of dedicated astronomers to complete! There is no story quite like it in the history of science. – The Old Farmer’s Almanac.
In the teachings of the Ageless Wisdom via esoteric spiritual philosophy, it is said VENUS has already achieved *SACRED STATUS* i.e. she has taken a key step in her own Ascension process toward Higher Consciousness. She has taken Initiation & increased her Light Quotient sufficiently to shed her ‘personality self’” – the same goal that we humans seek.
There are 4 planets in our solar system that have NOT achieved Sacred Status: EARTH (polarity) MARS (aggression) PLUTO (death) and THE MOON (glamorous emotion). (Note: the Moon is not a planet but is considered so for these purposes.) It is said that Earth is next in taking Initiation into Sacred Status. Venus, our sister planet, leads the way, giving even more loaded meaning to the celestial phenomenon of her walk across the Sun.
The issues associated with each of the planets striving for Sacred Status are the issues that Venus can help us with at this time with even greater vigor. These issues – polarity, aggression, death & glamorous emotion – reveal the crux of the matter: THE DARK HAS NOT YET BEEN INTEGRATED IN THIS SOLAR SYSTEM. …
Part 2: Focus on Venus & The 2004 Transit
CONTEMPLATE THE PENTAGONAL CYCLE OF VENUS: Consider the elegant and sublimely orchestrated orbit of Venus, which forms a pentagram (5-pointed star) in the heavens as it moves in its orbit. …
“There is a highly noticeable rhythm in the motion of Venus: after 8 years it returns to the same place in the sky on the same date. This was known to, and of great interest to ancient peoples such as the Maya. … In the 8-year span each heliocentric (centered around the sun) event of Venus, such as perihelion, happens 13 times; and each geocentric (earth-centered) event, such as inferior conjunction, happens 5 times. …
The numbers 5, 8, 13 are successive numbers in the famous FIBONACCI SERIES: 1+1 = 2; 1+2 = 3; 2+3 = 5; 3+5 =8; 5+8 = 8+13 = 21… This series converges on THE GOLDEN RATIO: 0.618… The number that is its own inverse: 1/0.618 = 1.618), and which crops up in proportions of Greek temples, spiral arrangements of leaves around plants, and the logarithmic spirals of shells, cyclones and galaxies. – Guy Ottewell, ‘Astronomical Calendar 2012′
Hence the pattern of a Venusian pentagram of morning stars or evening stars around the zodiac takes on a level of MYSTICAL GEOMETRY. This is true beauty, exhibited in the natural movements of the planet Venus, symbol of beauty and love. …
Part 3: Subtle Strawberry Full Moon Eclipse
The day before the Venus Transit – on June 4, 2012 – it just so happens that we will have a Full Moon that also just happens to be a Partial Lunar Eclipse. Eclipses always come in pairs (at the New Moon and Full Moon) and this is the ‘bookend’ eclipse of the May 20, 2012 Pleiadean alignment solar eclipse. The May 20th eclipse opened up the Venus Transit portal by activating a multi-dimensional Stargate with the Pleiades. The June 4th eclipse combined with the Venus Transit marks the conclusion of this powerful doorway into changed consciousness.
What is especially remarkable about this Partial Lunar Eclipse is – first of all, its proximity to the Venus Transit – and secondly, its preponderance of MUTABLE energy. That is, at the time of the eclipse there will be a triangle (T-square) involving the Sun, Moon, Venus and Mars. … The Mutable Cross is the cross of still-sleeping humanity, the majority of humanity (mass consciousness) which is largely unconscious to higher realities. … This eclipse, loaded with Mutable energy, on the eve of the Venus Transit reveals to us that still-sleeping Humanity WILL be activated by the Transit. …
To add to the unique convergence of astrological/astronomical events occurring at this time, the MOON ECLIPSES PLUTO on the same day as the Venus Transit. … Eclipse, the Full Moon will be transmitting the dark, as yet unprocessed, unredeemed and un-integrated energies of Pluto, the Dark Lord of the Underworld of humanity’s subconscious. This dredges up the energy that we are have collectively repressed and made unconscious….
Part 4: The Great Attractor ~ Gemini
The Horns of Venus
Gemini is very much the sign of ‘humanity’. It is the quintessential symbol of duality – essential duality that creates the tensions (eventual awareness) in the relationship between the Soul & personality. … IT WILL BE GEMINI THAT LIBERATES HUMANITY!
- Alan Oken, ‘Soul-Centered Astrology’
Venus Transit of 2012 occurs at 16 degrees of Gemini which is conjunct a deep-space anomaly known as “The Great Attractor” (TGA). The Great Attractor is a point of attraction in space is pulling our galaxy and all the galaxies around us towards it at 1 million mph. Scientists cannot explain it. Part of the phenomenon of The Great Attractor is that we can look BEHIND it, but not AT it. Light BENDS around it.
The Great Attractor might point to a new way to approach the *problems* we face individually and collectively: When something is utterly baffling, don’t try to go through it; don’t try to earnestly take down the wall brick by brick; just go around it to a whole new reality. Don’t beat your head against the wall, just calmly walk around it. …
At the time of the Venus Transit, when you are sending your consciousness to the merging of Venus and the Sun (either by gazing upon the Transit in person or via web, or by tuning into it in meditation) be aware that your consciousness is flying out to this massive and baffling point of Great Attraction, a point which is so unrelenting in its magnetism that it is drawing to it everything in our known Universe. What can you glean from this super stretch beyond the bounds of your ordinary reality? What can you Know that is beyond the edge of anything anyone on earth has ever even considered in the past? …
Part 5: The Black-Drop Effect ~Fusion
Kissing the Sun
There is an interesting phenomenon of the Venus Transit which is known as The Black-Drop Effect. The Black-Drop Effect occurs when the edge of the Venusian disk appears to deform and cling to the limb of the Sun. The “black drop” is an optical illusion which is the result of seeing problems due to the Earth’s turbulent atmosphere. …
When Venus is near the limb of the sun – the critical moment for transit timing – the black of space beyond the Sun’s limb seems to reach in and touch the planet. You can recreate the black drop effect with your thumb and index finger: Hold the two in front of one eye and narrow the distance between them. Just before they touch, a shadowy bridge will spring across the gap. … Venus represents the energy of FUSION. Let us see this from the relationship Venus has to Gemini. … It is on the level of the soul that the duality of Gemini ceases. …As a result, the soul can communicate with its “shadow” (the personality) and the shadow “in deep meditation” contacts the source of its light, the soul. The eventual marriage between the soul and the personality is now on its way towards completion. …
Viewing Info & Links
During a Venus transit, Venus is seen as a small, black dot moving slowly in an East-to-West direction across the Sun. The Venus Transit begins on June 5 at 22:10 UT and ends on June 6 at 04:50 UT, with mid-transit taking place on June 6 at 01:29 UT. The total duration is about 6 hours 40 minutes, i.e. the Transit starts about 3 hours before mid-transit and continues about 3 hours after.
This means that in the Eastern U.S., the transit will occur in early evening, beginning at about 6pm and reaching mid-transit at 9:09pm. The full Transit will not be seen since the sun will set at 8:46pm with twilight occurring at 9:19pm. In Hawaii mid-transit will occur at 3:09pm, which is why the entire Transit will be seen there (3 hours before and 3 hours after). Thus, the best place to see the 2012 transit is in the Pacific Ocean – including Hawaii, Alaska, and central Pacific islands. To find the VIEWING time in your area, go to:

NOTE: never look directly at the Sun! For safe viewing please read this information from NASA http://www.nasa.gov/vision/universe/watchtheskies/venus_transit.html
YOU CAN TUNE INTO THE VENUS TRANSIT EVEN IF YOU CAN’T SEE IT. THE SOLAR-CROSSING TIME OF THE TRANSIT LASTS ABOUT 6 HOURS, SO MEDITATING AT ANYTIME DURING THIS WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY IS A WONDERFUL WAY TO RECEIVE TRANSMISSION FROM OUR GENTLE SISTER AND OUR SHINING STAR.
OR you can watch the Venus Transit via the several LIVE WEBCASTS which will be taking place:
NASA Edge Webcast http://sunearthday.nasa.gov/transitofvenus/
Exploratorium Webcast http://www.exploratorium.edu/venus/
Slooh Space Camera Webcast http://www.slooh.com/transit-of-venus/
In addition, there will be a live webcast from the Mauna Kea Observatory in the Hawaiian islands which will enable us to see the Venus Transit in many different wavelengths of light- collaboration between NASA & University of Hawaii. http://www.lunarplanner.com/HCpages/Venus2012.html

What Venus sounds like
Soundtrack – music for viewing the Transit of Venus
There comes a stage when you think the planet is all inside, tangent to the edge. But wait some long, suspenseful seconds more! The black spot becomes slightly stretched toward the limb; then seems to hang by a short thick stalk from the great black curve like a ‘black drop’. This deformation is apparently caused by irradiation (spreading of brighter light in the eye) but may also be affected by turbulence in our atmosphere, since it is more marked when the limb of the Sun ‘boils.’ Suddenly the thread breaks: Venus is completely if infinitesimally surrounded by light. The instant of the breaking is 2nd Contact. – Guy Ottewell
