Watch Venus Transit the Sun!

Lovers rejoice as the Sun visibly conjuncts Venus

Naked Eye Astrology: Love Planet Venus Crosses the Sun

It is one thing to feel Astrology, but it's quite another level of amazing when you can actually see it. So on Tuesday, June 5, take a look upward and watch as the Sun conjuncts Venus at 6:09 p.m. (PDT) / 9:09 p.m. (EDT). Venus will be visible to the naked eye for a few hours starting about 6:06 p.m. EDT as it passes over the Sun in this once-in-a-lifetime event that won't happen again until 2117!

The best part about "Astrology you can see" is that it helps give us more appreciation for the way the planets' transits and aspects affect our moods and emotions every day. After all, seeing is believing, right? So to see an astrological aspect in action gives it much more impact, and allows us to better comprehend how the planets work together to shape our lives.

For example, when the Sun conjuncts Venus on June 5, it will appear as a small black dot on the surface of the Sun, and it will be visible to millions of people.  It will be more than 100 years before we'll be able to literally watch Venus pass across the Sun again, so it's a lesson to pay special attention this time!

So what does this mean, astrologically speaking? It's great news for love and relationships! When the Sun is conjunct Venus, it puts an emphasis on creativity and self-expression.  It's about getting out to meet and mingle, throwing parties and putting energy into pleasurable activities.

Not only that, but you'll likely have such a friendly and outgoing world-view during this time that you'll actually be more attractive to others, and you may even meet someone special.

You'll feel the effects of the Sun conjunct Venus whether or not you actually see it, of course. But maybe if you take a moment to look up and see that black spot crossing the Sun (it'll take six hours to cross completely), you'll remember the positive energy it's generating and let it inspire you to seize this wonderful day.
