Fun & Info @ Keralites.netThe Transit of Venus on the 5th and 6th of June 2012 is a rare event, and is made even more special because of the other astrological events at this time. We only get two transits of Venus about every 250 years, and they comes in pairs at eight years apart. So the last transit of Venus was in 2004, and the next one will be in the year 2117. A transit of Venus is your normal Sun conjunct Venus we usually get, but in this case, Venus passes across the face of the Sun. You can see in the picture on the right, taken during the 2004 transit of Venus, that this planets influence on us and the earth must be intensified, just look at her being engulfed by the fire of the Sun.

Transit of Venus 2012 Horoscope

As mentioned, this transit of Venus is extra special because of a number of other astrological events. We have the strongest influence on over a generation with Uranus square Pluto on June 24. There is the June 4 Lunar Eclipse just a day before, and then for this Venus transit, Venus is retrograde, conjunct asteroid Chaos, and square Mars. I have looked back at the charts of previous transits of Venus, and none had the intensity of this one. I believe that June 2012 will really kick off all the drama that has been predicted for this year.

How the Transit of Venus Affects Us

Sun conjunct Venus would generally make us "charismatic, charming, and lovers not fighters", with our love nature intensified by the Sun, we will be much more in need of love and affection, and also wanting to express love to those close to us, who we most care about. Venus Retrograde means that "our love lives enter a fated period where we may relive past life experiences in order to sort out karmic issues. Old friends or lovers may reappear and there may be more difficulty in giving and receiving love and affection". Venus and Sun square Mars will create anger and resentment, we won't put up with any more crap in our relationships. This is a love/hate aspect, we may sort out the differences through passionate and intense sex, or through screaming and fighting.

Venus is usually thought of as peaceful and loving, but in some ancient cultures such as the Mayan's, she was seen as the goddess of war, especially when retrograde. Now Sun and Venus square Mars does indicate conflict. Moon conjunct Pluto intensifies our feelings even further and represents emotional compulsion, emotional manipulation, jealousy and even pathological instincts. Uranus square Pluto will only make this volatile set of aspects even more explosive. The dramatic change is now made very personal with the Moon on Pluto. The Moon also rules our past, and with Venus retrograde, some of us could be in for some intense encounters with old lovers and even current ones.

Neptune is on the fixed star Fomalhaut "enchanted and intoxicated by love", and square the Moons Nodes would indicate some suspicions and mistrust involving family of other close relationships. It may also mean that we reach a critical turning point with negative habits, mainly drugs but also keeping secrets from lovers such as affairs. Moon with Pluto also suggests crunch time for negative habits and compulsions. This was a theme that kept coming up in the Venus retrograde post.

The overall picture emerging is one of facing up to reality in our relationships. If you have been deceitful in some way, been playing around or have an addiction, then you will likely face a lot of hostility from your partner or even close friends. If you are with someone whose addictions are putting a strain on your relationships, whether gambling, infidelity, drugs or porn, then you may reach a stage where you cannot let it go on. The great intensity shown in this chart means that any built up frustrations, resentment or anger, which has been poisoning a relationship, must now be released. It might get ugly, I can't think of an easy way to deal with such things, Sun and Venus square Mars is conflict.

Venus conjunct asteroid Chaos represent a struggle to find order, the conflict between good and evil, Michael and the Lucifer. It opens up a gaping hole where we are confronted with all the fear and confusion of the unknown. It ties the picture together really, intense feelings of love and hate, exposing the evil, fighting it, then filling the void a higher form of love. The light at the end of the tunnel is shown by the Moon and Pluto sextile Chiron, the healing of the obsessions or bad habits which have been the source of the conflict.
The people who will feel the transit of Venus the strongest, and probably find it most difficult will be decan 2 Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces. However decan 2 Aries, Leo, Libra and Aquarius should do particularly well out of it.
