On June 8th a rare transit occurs as Venus in Gemini passes between the Earth and the Sun. The last time this happened was 1882, perhaps presaging suffragist movements and the first steps towards the emancipation of women. Venus ruling the divine feminine in the sign of communication suggests opportunities for moving beyond the macho posturing and paralysis of the world's factions. I'm not certain but I believe this transit falls in the 12th House of the US, which may add a much needed sensitivity and selflessness to our body politic. This Venus transit will be followed by another on June 6, 2012. This somewhat new agey site puts forth the idea that the intervening 8 years is our time available to usher in the Golden Age. Just maybe the end of civilization as we know it is not necessarily a negative in the scheme of things. It offers at least some hope that the end of the Mayan Calendar represents a new beginning rather than doom.
"A Venus Transit was once the reason for the world's first international collaboration in science. The upcoming Venus Transit, on June 8, 2004, now promises to be the starting point for a deeper form of collaboration and unity including a spiritual dimension. Creating peace on Earth is to a large extent about sharing the experience of Oneness. The media broadcast meditation in Stockholm is meant to serve as support for people gathering in different places across the planet. This will be prepared for by a concert on Artists' Day (June 6th) and proposals by political and spiritual leaders how to apply the principle of Oneness to the challenges of modern man on Council Day (June 7th). Unifying humanity in such a way, at an occasion scheduled by the Cosmos, will have a profoundly positive influence on participants. It will also lead to the revival of spiritual sources that has for a long time been obscured, such as the Mayan calendar and the East Indian teaching of the path towards Enlightenment, that will provide knowledge giving hope for mankind. June 6 2004 is an important turning point in the Mayan calendar. Legend has it that the principle of light, Quetzalcoatl, would one day return to Earth from the planet Venus…and maybe the time from this Venus Transit to the next, that of June 6, 2012, around the time of the completion of the Mayan calendar is the time available to mankind for the creation of the Golden Age."
