I myself know nothing about astrology, but am allowing myself to be educated. Thanks to Vicky for this interesting article on Venus transits, sacred geometry, and the special role of Venus in the events of 2012 – the Return of the Goddess.
Goddess, the Divine Feminine
In Astronomy, a transit occurs whenever we see a planet pass directly in front of the Sun. But this can only occur with the two inner planets, Venus and Mercury, because they are the only planets that can position themselves between the Earth and the Sun.
The planet Venus is our sister planet – our feminine other half. Moving slightly faster than Earth, she revolves in the opposite direction. With the exception of the Sun and Moon, she is the brightest object in the sky.
Venus transits only once in a human lifetime, for a duration of eight years. The last cycle of her transits occurred in the late 1800s. We are now in the midst of another cycle, one that began in the year 2004 and completes midway through the year 2012.[i]

Venus is the Latin name for Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love, grace and beauty. But she is also known as Hesperus, the evening star. To the ancient Greeks, the god Hesperus was the evening star and his brother, Eosphorus, was the morning star. To the ancient Mayans, the god Xolotl was the evening star and his brother, Quetzalcoatl, was the morning star.

There are changes in the collective human consciousness that occur during a Venus transit. When consciousness expands, it does so according to the Fibonacci sequence of the numbers 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, and so on. Each number in this sequence is the sum of the previous two. When the sum is divided by the previous number, the result is 1.61803, or Phi. This ratio describes the proportions of everything from atoms to planets. It correlates to growth and harmonic cycles. It is the formula that all of nature relies on to maintain balance.
The Fibonacci sequence also relates to 137.5 degrees, or the sacred Golden Angle. This can be seen in the tip of plants, around which grow bumps called primordia. The measurement between these primordia is always the Golden Angle.
But the most fascinating display of the Fibonacci sequence can be found in spirals, such as pine cones, pineapples and nautilus shells – even in the DNA molecule. So our brain waves also follow the numbers in this sequence. Delta brain waves average around 3 Hz, Theta brain waves average around 5 Hz, Alpha waves average around 8 Hz, and Beta waves average around 13 Hz. When our brain is sending out Beta waves, we are fully conscious, awake and aware.
It is interesting to note that, when measured in cycles per second, the color violet also measures 13 Hz. This color has the highest frequency in the visible color spectrum. Ultra-violet is the point at which light as we see it moves into the invisible spectrum of Divine Light.
During the eight year cycle of the planet Venus, she shares the same orbit with the Earth. So Venus and Earth effectively become one planet. But what is most interesting is that, in this process, these two planets together trace out the geometric shape of a pentagram around the Sun – a five-pointed star. In ancient Hermeticism, the points of this star represent etheric Spirit and the four fundamental forces of nature. The circle that surrounds it is the symbol of unity, the symbol of a Goddess.
In the year 2012, when the last of the transits completes the formation of a pentagram, the planet Venus will be positioned in front of the Sun and in a direct line with the Earth. At that time, her higher vibratory frequencies will be intensely focused upon the Earth.
This will allow a higher level of awareness to permeate the planet, which will produce a flowering of human consciousness. And, because it is immediately followed by the exquisite galactic alignment that occurs in 2012, this Venus transit is very, very special. It’s the time of the Mayan 13th Heaven. It’s the time when the frequency of the Earth, itself, is predicted to reach 13 Hz, the next number in the Fibonacci sequence.
It is the Return of the Goddess.
