Thoughts from a Girl Who Looks Up at the Sky

Venus’ Rosey Orbits


Astronomy and astrology have always seemed to be at battle with one another. It’s the classic “science vs. religion” and many scientists argue that believing the planets have an affect on the way we feel is nonsense. Even though the practice of astrology dates back to ancient times and there has been much data to prove a significant relationship between humans and the stars, it is still rejected by many. Of course, most astrology-lovers know this is because many have yet to be enlightened. Not everything can just be coincidence or explained with physical evidence. Opening up your mind and accepting that there is a possibility is very powerful and broadens your horizons.

“Astronomers are fond of describing Venus as a barren, rock-strewn planet surrounded by boiling sulphuric acid vapour, when sneering at the tenets of astrology; implying that astrologers are incapable of looking at facts straight in the face. It would help them to develop beyond so sadly limited a viewpoint if they were to contemplate the marvellous significance of the Venus orbit.” – Nick Kollerstrom

When a friend told me about the rose patterns of Venus’ orbits, I decided to do some research. I guess I am the kind of person who “believes in magic” and I don’t think anything is just a coincidence. I found it so symbolic that Venus, planet of love and beauty, forms a perfect mandala around the Sun during her 8-year orbit. As seen in the video link below, it looks like a dance between Earth and Venus. Very beautiful and rare. As the Earth orbits around the Sun, the two planets meet, or “kiss”, 5 times for each rose petal. Although it’s just an 8-year cycle, this beautiful dance only takes place every 243 years!

Dancing of the planets around the Sun

Some refer to this time as the “return of the goddess” because, during the 8 year period (2004-2012 for our millenium), Venus is directly in line with the Earth, pushing her influence upon us. Open expression of love, art, and intuitive awareness. Venus loves unconditionally and does not judge and delivers a sense of peace and balance. I realize I’m a bit late to this news, but I found it so interesting, I wanted to talk about it. Any thoughts? Please feel free to enlighten me…

    Planets have had considerable impact on human affairs and human emotions simply because they are conspicuously visible to the naked eye, especially so before mass artificial lighting in cities. The scientific worldview rejects influence for sky objects because it assumes such influence would have to come from gravitation or electromagnetic radiation, the only two known physical forces that operate over long distance. It is true that the gravity exerted on a person by any planet (except earth itself) is negligible–your car’s gravitational field pulls on you more strongly than Jupiter does, provided you are standing within a few feet of the car.

    However, what scientists overlook is that no direct physical forces are needed for planetary influence. All that is needed is for intelligent human beings to be aware that planets are there, and note various regularities in their apparent motion from night to night, which human thought can then correlate with cycles in their own lives here on earth. Celestial bodies were the most reliable clocks until the 20th century.

    Astrology never has claimed to predict the future or determine personal attributes anyway. There are charlatans in astrology, but there are also quacks in scientific medicine. Responsibly used, astrological ideas can help people become more self-aware and more responsive to changes in the world around them.

    • Well said. Science often looks for proof, but sometimes seeing is not believing. Believing is seeing. It’s as simple as looking up and feeling a connection. If others would be more open-minded to the fact that the planets are more than just huge masses floating around in space, maybe there would be more acceptance and clarity. Humans tend to be put on a pedestal, but we are just another organism amongst billions, mere specks of dust in the universe.
