Venus Cycle: Descent into The Underworld, Ascent Into the SolarWorld
The planet Venus moves close to the Sun in our sky. The exact Venus Solar Conjunction is January 8, 2022. We ended 2021 with Venus as a blazing evening star, bright and visible in the west at twighlight and after sunset. Before the conjunction, Venus disappears from the night sky, and is swallowed from view by the sunlight. Venus will remain "invisible" - as in we are unable to see it, for several days prior and post conjunction. After a period of invisibility, Venus will be visible pre dawn in the morning sky, when we call it a Morning Star. Let's call that the "Venus Cycle".
Ancient Skywatchers in many cultures paid very close attention to this Venus cycle. Venus disappearing from view was equated with a descent into the Underworld, and the planet's "rebirth" into the morning sky was equated with a rebirth, a resurrection, a renewal.
The sunset picture from above I took on Monday January 3. This brilliant pink orange golden amazingly bright sunset occurred after weeks of grey sky, and on the heels of a grey cloud covered day. It was truly breathtaking and spectacular! As it was happening I noted - these are Venus skies (as many of us associate these colors with Venus) - and it truly felt magical and otherworldly. I felt strongly that these skies were a reflection for me of the Venus Cycle opening.
What was also amazing to see is so many friends, from across the country, share similar pictures that same sunset. VENUS CYCLE IS OPEN - was the message I received, loud and beautifully clear.
This morning, January 6, 2022, is the Cosmic Rising of Venus and the Sun. (Cosmic Rising is a Celestial Stargate alignment when two objects rise together.). This takes place around 7:15 am EST. Know that when you see the sun rise today, and as you gaze at the sun anytime in the next several days, that you are receiving light from both the Sun and Venus, both broadcasting and coding together.
DESCENT INTO THE UNDERWORLD
Many ancient cultures would consider this the time where Venus has descended into the underworld. The ability of a planet, or a deity, to descend into the underworld, and emerge into the sky, heavens again was considered a supreme power and greatly worshiped. Many mythologies, gods and goddesses emerged to represent and tell the tale of this powerful cycle...Innana in Sumerian, Ishtar in Babylonia, Quetzalcoatl in Mesoamerica, and many more.
ASCENT INTO THE SOLAR WORLD
We as modern sky gazers have come to understand that what is truly happening is an ascent of Venus into the SolarWorld. This planet is consumed by the sun's light, and it has not disappeared for good. We can chart that it will return in the morning sky after a period of invisibility. Depending on where you are and how your land lies that is around January 12-14, when Venus emerges into the morning sky, visible with Mars just before sunrise in the eastern sky. By January 20 - 22, Venus and Mars will be right in line with each other in the morning sky, growing closer to each other prior to their conjunction on February 16 (part 2 of the Venus Mars triple conjunction cycle, a story for another day).
This amazing bright green andara has been in my collection since I purchased it to "stand in" for Venus in my crystalline grids for the Venus Pleiades conjunction in April 2020. This andara solar activation depicted below is from September 26, 2021. I chose this color green as a Venus hue, to match the abundance of Olivine/Peridot believed to be on the surface of Venus, as a product of its many volcanoes.

Allow this current Venus Cycle to assist you in any inner transformations you have going on right now. We are, individually and collectively, undergoing HUGE cycles of death and rebirth, descending again and again into the depths, and emerging into the light of day, as resurrected Morning Stars!
