Venusian Cycle Characteristics

Aztec Calendar


In traditional Western Astrology, Venus is the Goddess of Love, the one who shapes our earthly sense of style and grace, the bestower of beauty and charm. Her placement in the birth chart can tell much about an individual's potential for meaningful partnership in life, and help to identify talents and life challenges in both love and art. With certain placements and aspects, Venus can indicate more self-indulgent characteristics, and even a distinct propensity for hedonism.

Inspired by an article by Bruce Scofield in Mercury Direct (from the Mt. Astrologer), I offer the following links for those who wish to explore the darker side of Venus... specifically the cycle of conjunctions and elongations with the Sun that were of particular importance in ancient Mayan culture. Here it may be discovered that these times can trigger key events in the unfolding of profound lessons related to the potential for self-indulgence inherent in the Venusian archetype. From the fall from grace of Quetzalcoatl to the sexual scandal and national humiliation of Bill Clinton, we may see how the powerful and influential, as well as common men and women can fall victim to the veil of delight that is Venus.

Links below also explore long-term Venus cycles, such as transits (eclipses) that occur in pairs appr. every 110-130 years, and bring leaps in communication and consciousness between beings, and the 5,125 year long-count of the Mayans which defines ages. It is said that the Fourth World age is coming to an end, and the Fifth World spoken of in many indigenous cultures is beginning soon, or already has. However, there is disagreement as to the actual beginning date of the current age.

Additional links explore: fascinating astronomical and numerical observations; a connection between Venus inferior conjunction and health; and connections to Christianity and other religious and cultural traditions and myths. Enjoy!!


2012 worrying you? Stop worrying and keep working toward a more enlightened and conscious way of being! In these times we are called on to speak truth, act with compassion, and trust our higher instincts. Our acts of genuine love and care, for each other and the world, are ultimately cataclysmic to the culture of selfishness and greed, and revolutionary to those of us who wish to live sustainably, in harmony, and closer to the earth.
