We all are going to be witnesses
to a rare and powerful astrological event that will unfold on the 8 th
of June , 2004. On this date , the planet Venus will pass over the Sun
and will be clearly visible to the naked eye . This can even be called
as the eclipse of the Sun by Venus . Although Venus passes across the Sun
say once every 18 months or so , passing exactly across the disc of Sun
is a rarity . This article is an effort to visualize the possible effects
on the earth and earthlings of this astral event .
Venus stands for good things of
life . Luxuries , aesthetics , love , finer emotions , clothes ,
jewelry , wife , lover , adornment, refinement, the feminine, affability,
riches, society, aesthetics, cheer, artistic appreciation, harmony, courtship,
the fine arts , the sense of hearing and the sensual indulgence and poetry.
The Sun stands for ego , control , power , the sense of self , the
self image , the male element , the foundation . Mercury stands for intellect
, the comic side of life , the lateral thinking , the intellectual pursuits
. All these three planets are coming together in
close conjunction on this day . They are coming together in the house of Taurus , in the nakshatra of Mrigashira or the nakshatra of Mars . Thus we can say that the king , the favorite of his consort and the court jester are meeting at the house of the consort by the fireplace ! Are you in a position to visualize such a meeting ?
What would be the effect of such a gathering on the celestial and earthly life ?
The King will dominate . The consort
will try to play the best host ,while the jester will try to please both
of them . Some display of fine arts is likely like singing . Some
intellectual jugglery like work play , jokes , double entendre will also
be the fillers for the program. And behold , the strong planets Rahu in
Mesha and Saturn and Mars in Mithuna are just outside the front and back
door . Saturn is keeping a check on Jupiter the Celestial systemiser ,
while pluto representing the collective people is watching the scenario
from the seventh house . A loaded situation indeed .
Venus is retrograde , while Mercury
is going forward . Both are combust thus
will not be able to do anything by their own selves but will act it out through the Sun . The orders will be given by the Sun and will be followed by the faithful servant Saturn and the commander Mars .
A lot of unfinished business will
come to the anvil to be finished . This will be from about 18 months previous
. The decisions taken will be more in terms of indulgence and intellectual
jugglery than the merit of the matter and also with an eye to the future
. Thus a lot of unfinished business will be finalised and a lot of unfinished
business will be created whose repercussions will be known over the period
of next 18 months . People will tend to lap up luxury goods , especially
for use by the female folk and for children .Sale of throat medications
will go up and so will that of cosmetics and jewellery as people
will try to please their spouses . Also people will commit so some kind
of long term regular expenditures like buying items of leisure on rent
or on monthly installments. Everyone will
try to get as much butter on their bread as possible keeping an eye of future benefits or money to be made in the future . A delusion of megalomaniac tendency is likely to be visible . Get rich quick schemes , lotteries , mega schemes will find a lot of sponsors . As Jupiter is having its drishti on the first house , all this will be within the limits of propriety and law .
For those materially inclined , this is just the period of careful indulgence . Enjoy to your heart's content but be within the limits . Drink as much as you like but do not drive thereafter . Go to places of your dreams but be sure that you have your return ticket booked already . Go to horse races or splurge on lottery but go there with only a limited amount of money and leave at the end of it if you happen to spend it . Do not borrow and bounce at any cost .
For those who are spiritually inclined this is the period of indulging in spiritual fine art . Engaging in spirituality by material means . Like buying new mantra cassettes , reading new books , going back to old practices which you may have stopped , going for a more vigorous kind of meditation , systemizing your routines , visiting esoteric shrines and temples and taking your spouse along . Read the famous book Chocolate or beter still accompany your wife to the movie by the same name .
For those who are action oriented , please think thrice before embarking on any dangerous mission or taking any hasty steps . Not only is their discord anongst your middle in form of Saturn and Mars , this conjunction is not very much in favour of action .
For the couch potatoes , no time is better than this to be what they love to be best at . Couch potatoes . Get lots of supplies , cushion your sofa , pick handful of casettes in case the cable does not live up to its expectations and give it a go .
For lovers , this is the time to
work on their relationships . Repair , redress , address , and revisit
the trouble spots in the past and retake your vows . You will find the
atmosphere very helpful .
For students , it is time to go back to routine of schools and homework . It is time to type of their time tables and targets and start doing regular studies . They will do well to take a bird's eye view of the next two years before getting down to the nitty gritty of day to day studies . The more they systemize the more they will gain throughout the year .
For housewives , take time to look
at the family affairs and aesthetics at home . Clean up the home , use
some fragrance , dim lights , make good food and you will be able
to get what you want out of your spouse and children .
Overall the Venus Retrograde , Sun
Mercury conjunction promises something
for everyone . Indulge , enjoy and Gain !
