Before Venus, and after

Toilette der Venus, Peter Paul Rubens, 1612–15

So what was the Venus occultation, otherwise known as the transit of Venus across the Sun, like for everyone? (about this transit, see astrobarry, Lynn Hayes, and Eric Francis)

All this activity in Gemini — eclipses, Venus, Jupiter — is activating my Gemini stellium and descendant (not to mention all that activity in Virgo and Pisces, too), but not yet in ways that I can fully grasp. There is a palpable sense of a ‘before’ and ‘after’ though. A sense that old ways of doing and thinking are rapidly becoming outdated. I’m not yet sure what form the ‘new’ ways might take, but I’m pretty sure the old ways won’t work anymore.

All I seem to be able to do right now is just be ready. Be ready to run, glide, flow, when the call comes (Jupiter?).

It’s all a bit scary, and a bit exciting too. What a summer this promises to be.

    Hi! Christina of The Oxford Astrologer has a great post on this Venus event & the one in 2004. Both took place close to my N Node in Gemini & contributed to my presence in the astro-blogosphere. This is Venus & she is often gentle. Heh . . . just wait ’til Jupiter goes tromping thru! 😀

      Hi Diane, thanks for this. Jupiter rules my chart, he can can tromp away! 😀 I’m hoping for some movement. Things haven’t really been stagnant but it feels like my life has parallel tracks — one track is moving really quickly, and another is still stuck. I’m waiting for the two to merge…. Hoping this summer will be it!
