Astronomy Transits of Venus are among the rarest of astronomical phenomena.
Venus will pass directly between the sun and the earth, on June 6th 2012.
On June 6, Indians will be able to witness a spectacle called the ‘transit of Venus’. This is the last transit that Venus will make for this century...the next one will only be visible in the year 2117.
Transits of Venus are among the rarest of predictable astronomical phenomena. They occur in a pattern that repeats every 243 years, with the pairs of transits eight years apart separated by long gaps of 121.5 years and 105.5 years.
The transit of Venus occurs when Venus passes directly between the sun and the earth and obscures a small portion of the solar disk. While this is much like a solar eclipse, Venus, which is almost four times the size of the moon, appears smaller and moves more slowly across the face of the sun, as it is much farther away from the earth. Venus will be seen as a small black disc moving across the sun.
Venus is shrouded in mystery and astrologically has a huge impact on you. Venus rules the arts, wealth and material bliss. At the same time, Venus is a teacher. He holds the secrets of manifestation and the mysteries of the life and death process. Venus has a deep connection with all Goddesses and is indicative of Kundalini and Sexuality.
- This rare transit of Venus will bring good fortune and benefits to all. The following Moon Signs will benefit the most: Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces.
- People can overcome/remove a lot of Karmas and Doshas (Sins, Curses) on this day. On June 6th IST obtain the blessings and guidance of a Spiritual Guru.
- People who develop new friendships on transition day will be immensely benefited. They will be blessed to obtain help and support from their new friends.
This is not a day to go on spiritual retreat. Make sure you get out of the house and meet people, attend a network business function.
The entire transit of Venus will be visible from eastern Asia, eastern Australia, north western North America, the Arctic and North Pacific Ocean. While unfortunately the beginning of the event will not be visible in India as it will begin before sunrise, the last two phases of transit can be seen for about 17 minutes comfortably. This is one of the most rare and exciting celestial events. There are four phases during a transit: two at the start (ingress) and two at the finish (egress).
The safest way to observe a transit is to project the image of the sun through a telescope, binoculars, or pinhole onto a screen,.
