Venus transits the Sun on this day. A powerful cosmic event to punctuate a year of profound transformation.
The Goddess of Love whirls before us, aligning with Earth and the scintillant Sun for a few hours in the ceaseless dance of the spheres. Declare love for all life in this extraordinary moment.
The next occurrence of this alignment will be 105 years from now.
The great struggle of our time will be over by then. Either humanity will have come to peace with itself and healed its relationship with Gaia, or the liberty and clarity to indulge in such a moment of revel will be under severe duress if not utterly snuffed out.
Declare love for all life in this extraordinary moment.
Follow the Goddess across the sky, and take care not to be burned by the Sun.
