Venus Transit: A call for Global Oneness

By Kiara Windrider and The Global Oneness Foundation

The darkest hours of night come just before the dawning of a new day. There is no question that Earth faces a tremendous crisis today, a painful “dark night of the soul”, even the possibility of catastrophic obliteration. Yet, according to the prophecies and calendars of many ancient traditions, this Age also represents a time of hope. We are moving into a time of evolutionary renewal, a time of global purification, even what some refer to as the dawning of a Golden Age!

The ancient Mayans developed a calendar system that is very relevant to these times. It can be seen as a cosmic timing code, and is prophetic in the sense that it reflects a deep understanding of long-term cycles of creation. As evolutionary cycles of cosmic energies are absorbed into Earth’s electromagnetic fields via the Sun, human consciousness responds to these impulses in a predictable manner, following a cosmic pattern of dark and light. The Mayan calendar describes the sequence and timing of these patterns. According to this calendar, the year 2012 reflects the end of certain cycles of history based on duality and separation, and represents the birthing of a Golden Age of Enlightenment.

Once we begin to use the Mayan calendar to understand the deeper significance of world events today, this claim no longer seems as improbable as it may first appear. Out of deepest darkness comes the greatest light. In his studies of the Mayan calendar, Dr. Carl Johan Calleman points to a key event taking place now which might well serve to initiate this extraordinary opening to planetary light.

The planet Venus is rich in archetypal symbolism. It is often known as the Morning Star, the Bringer of Light. It is related to love, human unity, beauty, and oneness. On June 8, 2004, the path of Venus directly crosses over the disc of the Sun, an eclipse lasting for the space of seven hours. The energies of Sun and Venus blend together, and as these blended radiations make their way into the Earth’s electromagnetic fields, it weaves the energies of love and unity into the mass consciousness of the planet, and potentially into the hearts of every man, woman, and child alive on Earth!

Interestingly, Venus transits always come in pairs. The second passage of Venus across the Sun’s disc takes place on June 6, 2012. The eight-year period in between represents a “doorway” through which Unity consciousness will come to dominate the mass consciousness of the Earth. Since this is a 130-year cycle, there are few humans alive today who have experienced this transit, yet it can be seen that every time this transit has taken place in human history, it has represented a new level of harmonization on the planet. It is interesting to note that the Taj Mahal, one of the greatest monuments to Love in human history, was built during the Venus Transit of 1631-1639 AD!

The transition into Unity consciousness could be turbulent. As old structures of human consciousness collapse, it may be accompanied by a degree of darkness and destruction. This process should be seen in proper perspective. “When the light hits”, as Jose Arguelles, puts it, “the dark gets tough”! This current “doorway of Venus” is especially significant because it remains open until 2012 AD, the completion of our current cycle of human evolution. Some refer to this date as the end of linear time, or as the end of a period of human consciousness conditioned by separation and duality. The Mayans refer to this time as the Return of Quetzalcoatl, the Plumed Serpent, and look to this eight-year doorway as the timeframe within which the mass enlightenment of humanity will take place.

We are calling people all over the world to observe the days leading up to this Venus Transit, June 6-8, as a time for opening to the bright impulse of cosmic energy that is streaming into the mass consciousness of Humanity. What are our highest dreams and hopes? What is our greatest potential as divinely inspired humans? What can we create together as we step into the “doorway” to the Golden Age?

June 6-8 is being promoted worldwide as the Global Oneness Celebration. Let us come together during this time in gatherings and prayers throughout the world to celebrate love and beauty, light and unity. Let us translate these energies into art, economics, culture, politics, education and ecology. Let us pray, each in our own way, for peace, healing, beauty, and global oneness! We will continue building the momentum on this same day for the next eight years until June 6, 2012.

Please link up to www.globaloneness.com/community for suggestions on what you can do. It will be a place for people to meet and discuss different projects and ideas for creating global oneness. The whole eight year project is described here: www.globaloneness.com/commitment . For more information about the Venus Transit see: www.globaloneness.com/venus_transit

Please publish this letter on you website if you wish and circulate it widely to you network.

Venus Transit: Venus - Goddess of the Morning Star
By Maya White 

Venus has been waiting patiently for her turn to speak. Rising silently from her scallop shell in the foamy ocean, the Goddess of Desire invites us to explore her multi faceted beauty. According to Greek legend, Venus /Aphrodite was conceived of scattered semen from Ouranos after he was castrated by his son Saturn. As a child of the sky god and the fertile sea womb, Venus emerged fully mature from primordial waters which mirror our instinctive desires to merge with love; be it the subjective desire of our imagination, or a real life object of our pursuit.

Venus has a deep mystical side, but she also symbolizes basic attractions. Even her astrological symbol looks strikingly like a hand held mirror, reminiscent of the maiden who admires herself. By necessity, her playing field is the realm of relationships, but Venus rules all aspects of love and attraction. The root definition of love is "fond desire" which has many aspects, including religious devotion as well as brotherly love. Venus's domain is Eros, the quality of sexual passion and romantic love. Eros also contains a quality of relatedness. We most often think of falling in love with another person; but what about that of shoes you just have to own? The insatiable need comes from you, the buyer. Enticingly, though, the hypnotic power of attraction is fueled by perfectly styled smooth black leather shoes, the object of desire.

In modern astrology, Venus helps identify what is pleasing to us, as well as our style of drawing it in. Venus attracts primarily by magnetism. Mars, the red warrior planet reaches out in active pursuit, chasing after what he desires. Mars is related to our vital energy, enthusiasm, and the impulses to protect ourselves. Venus identifies with the object of her desire and works primarily to meet the needs of affection. Love fuels our sense of beauty, as well as appreciation for others; hence, the other representatives of Venus' domain - art, music, and literature.

The arts are well tempered in Libra, one of the signs ruled by Venus. Balance, equality, sensibility, and relationships are all key words for Libra. Taurus, the sign so easily associated with spring fertility and nature is her other expression. Is it surprising that the apple is one of Aphrodite's fruits? Most of us grew up with the story about Eve partaking of her forbidden delight. Venus is also represented by the tortoise, swallows, and cooing doves. Doves were symbolic of the female sexual organs to early pagans, and have been associated with feminine lore in countless other traditions. Swans were also sacred to Aphrodite. Zeus (father of Venus) took the shape of a swan when he made love to the mortal Ledo. Visualize the long graceful neck of a swan and its majestic white body. Metaphysically swans teach us how to open to our inner beauty and express it to the outer world. Swans are noted for their trait of choosing life long mates.

The Venus of Greek mythology was wedded but not committed to fidelity. This mother of Cupid ruled sexual love and instinctual behavior. Venus was married to Vulcan, a god of fire and metalwork who labored tirelessly to create perfectly manufactured objects that would please her. However, Venus was never able to honor Vulcan's need for monogamy. She is linked to a succession of lovers, and was especially attracted to the fearsome god of war, Aries.

One often repeated story of the escapades of Venus and Aries tells of how Vulcan trapped the two lovers in bed with a magic net forged of gold chains. Once the helpless pair was secured in his palace on Mount Olympus, Vulcan called upon the other deities to witness the sight of the chained lovers. His intent was to embarrass Venus as punishment for her infidelity. Much to Vulcan's dismay, most of the other gods were not swayed by this humiliating spectacle. Mercury stated that he would willingly change places with Mars to be allowed the pleasure of Venus's company. And, the female goddesses, in solidarity with Venus, gave no support to Vulcan. In keeping with Piscean qualities of compassion and mystical love, Venus and Aries were finally released at the insistence of Neptune.

Venus shines prominently in the night sky, and even progresses through phases similar to the moon. She is almost equal to Earth in size and mass; but rotates clockwise, as opposed to earth's counterclockwise movement. Given her visibility, it's not surprising she plays such an important role in ancient cultures. The Mayans aligned their temple pyramids to the rising of celestial bodies, and used Moon/Venus cycles to calculate their interlocking sacred and secular calendars. Venus shines brightly in the sky as a morning or evening star but there are also periods of time when she is not visible from earth. This cycle holds a key to deeper understanding of how feminine power has been diminished as male dominated warring cultures gained ascendancy.

Some of our earliest surviving myths come from the Sumerian culture (approximately 2000 BCE) in the area known today as Iraq. The Sumerian goddess Inanna, is an early Venus archetype. Inanna of the Morning Star had to journey to the underworld where she was trapped and rendered naked and defenseless. Only by her cunning and strength does she gain release. Another early Venus-star deity is Ishtar, who also travels in the underworld to bring back her lover Tammuz. After a terrifying ordeal, she is returned to the land of the living because the other gods cannot abide even their utopian existence without a goddess of love. Ishtar returns to reign as the Queen of Heaven, though without her lover, Tammuz.

Sadly, our early mother goddesses have lost some strengths as they were assimilated and diluted through Greek and then Roman world view. Early Venus-star goddesses were strong willed queens who integrated their power through a heroic descent to the underworld. Venus has retained her allure and sexuality, but Queen Ishtar has been fatally boiled down to Marilyn Monroe; a vision of beauty, but not of personal strength. The "heavy lifting" still gets brought to the table, but now by other personifications of human struggles, such as Pluto and Persephone. Isn't it telling that both Ishtar and Inanna were stripped naked while in the underworld? Love surely has the power to reveal our true essence. Common to all ages, the need for love is one of our most powerful human drives. The transformational power of love remains eternal, and of course we enjoy the fruits of Venus as we know her; in relationships and other pleasures that make the world go 'round.
