The Silence of Venus
I received an email from my aunt today regarding a Venus transit coming up on June 8. Since Venus is the planet of love, this will be a powerful time to release love-related conditioning that is no longer serving us. I have translated the text from my aunt from German to English. The original was written by Werner Neuner.
The Year of Venus 2008
In the early morning hours of June 8, 2008 Venus will disappear behind the sun completely and not reemerge slowly until June 10. We will be witnesses to an event of the century.
Venus has always been a symbol for love. Can Venus indeed influence love? And if so, what effects will this event have on our ability to love and our love life?
An astronomic event like this, in which Venus entirely disappears behind the sun, is extremely rare and not experienced by every generation. The last time was on December 5/6, 1878, the next one will be on December 7/8 in the year 2121.
The moment Venus steps behind the sun on June 8, 2008, her influence on the Earth and on our lives disappears as well. It is akin to a total shutdown of the Venusian love vibration. Then, on June 9, the disappearance of Venus will reach its climax.
With respect to love and relationships, we all carry a wealth of programs within ourselves, including especially those about self-respect and self-love. Many of these programs are beliefs we have adopted from the way we were raised. But just as many programs exist as a result of our heart having experienced pain throughout life. Through dramatic experiences in particular, programs develop that we have created ourselves. These programs are extremely effective, even if we have long forgotten their creation. If, for example, after a disappointment we promised ourselves never to get hurt again, this is an oath that remains effective energetically. In an emotional moment like this, if we "cursed" ourselves never to completely open our heart to someone else again, we can't be surprised if we end up perpetually alone in the heart of our being.
At the moment Venus steps behind the sun, it represents the complete shutdown of all love themes. And this is an excellent moment to get rid of everything that afflicts our love life. June 9 is most suitable for this because the silence of Venus will be deepest on this day.
It suffices to allow ourselves a few quiet minutes on this day in which we tune into our heart. We can connect with our own heart, with our own ability to love, much like with a good friend. We can talk to our heart. And we can tell our heart that now, this moment, is the time to release and give back everything that burdens and afflicts it. We can tell our heart that the time has come for renewed freedom, renewed vitality, and renewed joy.
Then, on June 10, 2008, Venus steps back out from behind the sun. She starts affecting us anew. Her influence, her vibrational patterns start beaming at us again in new forms.
Love will be reborn in this moment!
On this day, if we allow ourselves to dedicate a few moments to love, we can do the following: We can talk to our own heart the way we would to a friend. We can feel our heart and the pulse of our heart by placing our hands in the center of our chest and looking inward.
And then we can image that a rose, a red, wonderfully fragrant rose, starts blossoming in our heart. The feeling of this blossoming rose is meant to run through the entire body.
And we will experience that inside ourselves as well, love is reborn!
