June 6, 2012       11 am – 2 pm in Melbourne Venus will pass over the face of the Sun and we can see it here on the east coast of Australia. This will not happen again till 2117, so I am taking the opportunity to view it. Even if there are clouds, it will be shown on the internet.

To join with fellow like-minded people, go to the beautiful lawns of the Abbotsford Convent to view this rare appearance of Venus transiting across the face of the Sun.

Telescopes to view the transit will be available. In bad weather it can also be watched from the internet in the Salon.  Local astrologers and astronomers will discuss the significance of this astronomical event.

 If you try to look on your own; be very careful. The Sun will blind you if you try to look at it directly. The best way is to shine the Suns light through a pin hole in cardboard. Have the light coming through the hole and shining onto a white sheet of paper. The smaller the hole, the clearer the image.  In the white paper you will see the dot of Venus pass in front of the Sun.  Or you can watch the live event on http://www.tranistof venus.com.au

 Captain Cook was in the pacific ocean to view such a transit when he discovered Australia! Think about where we have come since then!

 The union of the Solar Sun God with Venus the queen Goddess of fertility and love, always meant good things to the ancients. It is the union of the great King with the great Queen. And since she stands in front of the King, then it means she is in charge! And when the great rulers are in harmony, and the King bows and gives way to the Queen, then “peace will guide the planets and love will rule the stars”.  


Have a wonderful day!
