Transit of Venus

Transit of Venus

The Transit of Venus on 5-6 June 2012 is a rare event, and is made even more special because of the other astrological events with this Venus transit. We only get two transits of Venus about every 120 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.

2012 Venus Transit Horoscope

As mentioned, this transit of Venus is extra special because of a number of other astrological events. We have the strongest influence in over a generation with Uranus square Pluto on June 24. There is the June 4 Lunar Eclipse just a day before, and Venus is retrograde conjunct minor planet 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 in our 2012 Astrology Forecast. There is also mention of the 2012 Transit of Venus in the Cherokee Rattlesnake Prophecy.

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 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 or 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 the Minor Planet Chaos represents a struggle to find order, the conflict between good and evil, Michael and 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.

    Family life ? Career?

  5. I’m born on 21st september 1977, at 1 pm, Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and my husband on 18th August 1974 in Novi Sad, Serbia.
    He had problem with drug addiction in the past years and has been clean for a year and a half after short recidive period during my pregnancy in december 2010. We now have 1 14 months old baby, and I would like to know the potential of our relationship or should this be ended now.

    • I am not a professional astrologer, although I do study it a lot on my own, so keep in mind I am coming from that perspective. But simply from the point of view of intuition, ‘women’s’ or just basic intuition.. if your husband has been clean now for more than a year.. and you just had a new baby, unless you are still experiencing problems in the relationship, I would not be necessarily so quick to think that you HAVE to end it… but let an astrologer/counselor with more specific information come up with a reply too.. according to everything I’ve been reading on this website however, this is a time of volatility where we will be having doubts and thoughts about things… and we should not make any decisions during this time, but really take more than one look at things.. from all sides.. and see what we should really do.. my basic ‘women’s intuition says though that you do not need to be so drastic in your relationship at this time. Take it as it comes.. have some faith that your husband will pull through.. and keep on the path..

    • Do you know what house he has Neptune in? Neptune (as you may already know) is the planet that symbolizes addiction (among other things).

        • Tamara, I wish you and your family well and hope that your Heart wisdom will guide your future choices.

          As they say in my country kia kaha, kia toa, kia manawanui: When you find that things are difficult in life, Stand strong, stand tall and be of great heart.

  6. How will 3rd decan librans do out of this venus transit? are we going to be alright in our current relationships? my birthday is 21/10/1978 born seoul south korea at 6.13pm

  7. Hi
    Does anybody know the orb of the rare sun/venus conjunction to other planets? My descendant is 2,5 degr from the conjunction and my 7. house ruler mercury is trining the conjunction, but also with an orb of 2,5 degr. Does it count and will it affect my love life? Also, venus is my 5. house ruler … and presently travelling through my 5-6-7 house …

    • Yes, I would count that orb. I usually use tighter orbs but in this case, coming so close to the eclipse and being such a rare event I would give it up to 5 degrees.

      • Dear Jamie
        Thanks a lot. Counting from today for how long can something happen. I have read that eclipses can affect us up to six months … What about the sun/venus conjunction? I’m in a miserable waiting position probably because of t. saturn conjuncting my venus (25.42 libra, ruler of 4/5/9 house)

  8. I have natal Rx Gemini Venus @ 17 in the 11th, Libra IC at 14 /Aries MC, Sagittarius Vx @ 18 in the 5th, Libra Pluto@18. I am trying to remember 2004 (was 24y.o.)-was a hectic but nice year. Left abroad for a volunteer project and fall in love. Was the year I felt my life was totally changing and I was growing up in the same time. Im so curious about 2012!

    • I personally don’t know, but here in the Western United States around the same time (strange), I and my boyfriend were both having trouble sleeping … in fact, I hardly got any sleep at all and I have been up since about 8:30 this morning and it is now 2:40 am and usually I would be exhausted by now, but I am still going strong… I have been all day .. there is some intense energy going on right now.. remember, we are experiencing, among other things, the powerful Venus in Transit.. as well as a lunar eclipse from Monday.. as well as asteroids and solar flares.. all sorts of things.

    • Hi
      Sun conjuncted venus (retrograde)early this morning. A very rare phenomenom … love is in the air … I couldnt sleep either and somehow completely lost track of time ….

    • Venus conjuncted sun on its retrograde journey. A rare phenomenom. I could not sleep either and somehow lost track of time …. love is in the air and the energy is running high …

  10. For some reason I had a nervous break down last night for no reason, never ever happened to me before, but I was crying non stop and even told my friends that I can not control it! Then i slept on it, and now I’m fine! Kindda still annoyed but not as much as last night! I hope this thing won’t affect Virgo this dramatically!

  11. Today is my birthday. Does this hold anything special for me in my life? I have been having a really rough time with love since 2003. Someone who I love very much but hasn’t returned feelings for me in the same way. He’s an Ares too. Any hope?

  12. My wife and I are both decan 2 Sagittarians and, besides meeting each other and getting married, have had a pretty rough go about in the last eight years. Last night, we experienced an odd purging of opinions during the second transit and communicated to each other in a way I can’t remember us ever experiencing. I am very interested to see what happens moving forward for both of us!

  13. @Ed: Wilhelm Reich would call that an Emotional Release. It’s a beautiful thing–a cleansing thing. It’s only this culture that gives it a negative connotation by labeling it a “Nervous Breakdown”. Because of this negative connotation, we tend to fear these events and thus miss the richness they possess. The only negative aspect of such a release is that it’s a reaction to this cultures suppression of emotion. Were we free to express (i.e. release) our emotions in a natural flow (without fear of social ostracism), they wouldn’t build to the point where such a massive release was necessary.

    But, please don’t fear such a release, or think it bad or indicative of a malady. It’s the labels, and the fear they inspire that is the malady, not the thing itself. In the presence of a shaman, your ‘condition’ would be handled as a healing and revival/rejuvenation/renewal would follow, rather than “recovery”.

  14. Dear Jamie and Marina
    I am pretty new on this site relating to “comments” whereas I have been subscribing to all your dark star astrology messages for quite some time, a most amazing world compared to astrology alone. However, one of your users recommends me to ask you if one of you could please check out my horoscope and a person who entered my life almost exactly at the time of both moon and sun eclipses late 2011 . Our horoscopes have many strong connections and might me karmic but our relation has been so filled with strange obstacles etc. ever since. Still I maintain the feeling of something “meant to be”? or something disastrous? I would be most grateful. Looking forward to hearing from you. Thanks. BR Eva

  15. i don’t mean to be rude, but do the ppl leave their birthdates expect marina and jaime to answer them all personally? i believe one can order a reading, as many of the questions r very specific and would require looking up each chart, etc. Perhaps i am mistaken and the comments r more like a forum where independent astrologers passing through may assist.

    • Thanks Bob! Its true if we answered all comments we wouldn’t have time to write blogs or do the readings. Plus we do have kids too. I do get quite astounded by some of the more aggressive hawkers. Sometimes it does work like a forum when someone will answer for us. But that’s rare. I like to see people attempt to interpret their own query 1st because it can be educational since they have the aspect or star. They have first hand experience. But people who just leave their birthdate!?! I think that is disrespectful of our time and clutters up the comments for people who genuinely want to participate in an astrological discussion. Sometimes if I just see a blatant date of birth from someone who has not contributed anything in the past. I just trash it! Brings out the raging Lilith in me.

      • I am sorry Marina. As I wrote I am new on this site reg. comments. I do have all the respect of your time, but just did not know how things work here. Now I do. Thanks again.
        BR Eva

        • I am new as well Eva and getting to know the site. Hopefully the people who are used to using this site could be patient with us new comers as we get acquainted and used to how things work.

  16. How can you counteract the negative effects of this Transit of Venus ?

    • by being aware of them and aware of ur tendencies and using it as an opportunity 4 self reflection in any manner that u feel comfortable

  17. i m born in hubli,india dob is23-12/1972 @21:05:00 how does this transit effect me i mean this transit is good or bad for me?

  18. Last night lived up to everything described above love-wise. My partner is a Decan 2 Gemini while I am a Decan 2 Pisces and I can confidently say that there was indeed a “revolution.” He opened up more than he ever has before, and we went through a long and intense discussion of the past, present and future. I am still in shock that it happened to be honest and I can feel without a doubt that this transit of Venus had a great deal to do with it.

  19. I was hoping you could give me some insight. Last night my partner 8/8/1978 Leo, Sydney Australia born, informed me that he was leaving me, after having reassured me all day that we were fine. He has now gone and I feel devastated, confused and scared. I am 28/11/1973 Sag, also born Sydney Australia at 00:45 am. I don’t know what to think, if because Venus is in retrograde we have hope of healing our relationship, or the eclipse has an air of finality to it. I just feel very sad because although I know we had some aspects that needed nurturing and working through, there was also plenty of beauty to our relationship. I also feel very unlovable and fear that there is something about me that will prevent me having a lasting long term relationship. Thank you for hearing me out. J

  20. I am still reeling from the energy of this transit. I think it began with the eclipse in May, in gemini and has come to a head here with this venus transit. Being a Libra, and venus in virgo, libra in mars.. I do not like war, to say the least…My lover who is Pisces and Aires moon however was on the war path for days, towards the world and himself. Such passion in reverse is great for love, but this transit brought out such intense conflict, that I am not sure I will recover easily with him. It seems that the deepest relationship wounds surfaced that need much healing. My own karmic connection to these wounds is also reflective for me, of now expanding past those blocked energies.

  21. I’m aquarian (22 jan 1972) with Mars in Aries and Venus in pisces and I have been through one of the worst times emotionally and relationship wse, especially coming to a head during this transit. My partner is an Aries (7 April 1964) Can anyone give me any insight as to why this has occurred please? And if the changes will be final or if things will go back to how they were?

  22. this is a very sophisticated interpretation; this website is great

  23. my 14 year finally marriage disintegrated; my daughter 03.03.00 Pisces (London) was in the middle and my husband 15.07.75 (W Africa) was the culprit

    what happens next guys ?

    • You grow out of dependency in the institution of marriage and start to find out who/what you really are.

  24. Hi
    Does anybody know if the energy stored during a solar/moon eclipse in the birth chart planets involved will be triggered when another planet (mars or sun or?) hits that high energy spot later by conjunction or could this spot also be affected by other aspects (sq, trine etc.) and by any planet aspecting this spot, not just the personal ones. Thanks. Eva

  25. Hi
    Is anybody experienced in saturn transiting your venus 3 times (going retrograde) and if this is a process involving the same issue which will be finalized when saturn hits the last time? In my case love.


  26. Hi
    Is anybody experienced in venus return charts? If venus, sun, mercury and saturn conjuncts in 7. house + juno + vertex, could this mean love the year involved? and will this conjunction block be activated as in an ordinary birth chart. Thanks

  27. Hi
    If venus receives only 1 aspect from mercury (sextile) and no other aspects at all i nthe birth chart could this mean that this person is not able to receive love from others, lacking the venus quality? His venus is in aq in 12. house ….

  28. I am living intricately and profoundly through everything described in all these posts and pages here… and too dumbfounded and overloaded, angry and emotional about it all to share any details. All the pages I’ve read here are absolutely awesomely spoken and exactly on the bullseye. Wish I’d seen all this coming… but feel that weird sense that seeing it coming, I still would have landed up smack in the middle of it all. Fated… unavoidable… too much.

  29. You know, the odd thing about all of this is I know that it is true. Planetary movements effect life on earth, and the types of experiences we undergo however this specific transit did not effect me in this way. I think it is because I was dating this guy who refused to be faithful but I broke it off with him in April and since then I have been SUPER SINGLE (if ever their was such a thing). It was really hard for me to do but I knew it was for the best…my best that is…screw him. So I think because I broke it off wit him I may have bypassed everything that you all have experienced. I hate broken hearts. It hurt for about 2 weeks and now I’m good again.

  30. I really wish I knew about the effects this was going to have. I went crazy! Like a Banshe, ruined my relationship and now I think he will think I’m a complete nutbag. The week leading up to the transit was horrible, I felt like I had no control of myself.
    Even I would have thought that I was crazy. Is my life going to be shit until the next transit in 2017? Please say no.
    Also, a weird question…I have really strong hormones and normally am the girl in the group to make other girls get their periods. I can usually set my clock to my cycle and have typical PMS symptoms intensely. If I am really effected by this am I more perceptive to the universes movements?
    Might be completely silly but just thought there may be a connection.
    Also I am a Aquarian and the report said I would be more than likely affected positively. I might not see it now but it could be down the line but at the present time it felt like the world was caving in. My parents told me they were splitting after 30 years of marraige.
    My partner was scorpio, I know technically we aren’t that compatiable so that may of had something to do with it.

    If any light can be shed, this would be amazing.

  31. i have my sun in 15 Gemini30 min and i am Belgian (Europe)
    i was in Virginia Beach at the time of Venus transit on 5th June 2012 (about my astrological birthday)
    In the evening i went for the first time for a past life reading .
    The person told me that at that moment there was a Venus transit :
    I got a very special energy from the cosmic forces that filled up my whole body during about one hour ; i could also transfer this energy to the person who assisted for the past life reading; he said he could feel the flow of the energy that he got from me.
    I saw i nice horizon , blue sky ; circles with nice colours going higher and higher away into heaven ; after one hour everything has gone, but this power stayed into my body.
