Tweeted 6/11~ Beginning Tues/Wed morning, Venus is visible rising just before the Sun (heliacal rise), as the goddess emerges from the underworld renewed.
"By June Venus disappears from view only to re-emerge a few weeks later as the Morning Star, growing bright until mid-August and early-September. As she emerges she will be sitting in the face of the Great Cosmic Bull- the stars of Taurus. This radiation of the Cosmic Bull implies that something will be destroyed or ruined but will then be re-cosmogised, reborn or remade afresh. The Assyrian priest Nergal-etir wrote that this implied a loss of the harvest while Bel-le'i added that if Venus is bright it will be worse, particularly if, 'Ishta wears a silver crown!' Translating this into a modern concept it could well mean yet again another crises in Europe over currency or another global stock market crisis- a harvest being destroyed in this period. This is a time when the heavenly patterns are indicating cosmogising- destroying to remake afresh." ~Visual Astrology Newsletter
Jupiter enters Mercury ruled Gemini today. And Mercury's now translating the light of the Uranus-Pluto square that's in effect for next 3 years, which reflects the process of building on the ruins of the old- transformation. The planetary picture Mercury = Uranus/Pluto, "An intense thought-activity, a restless mind, an indefatigable mental worker, creative activity, an inventive and resourceful person. The constant occupation with new things and plans." ~Pg. 199, The Combination of Stellar Influences by Reinhold Ebertin
In a sense, this midpoint picture is relevant to the entire transit of Jupiter through Gemini (6/11/12 - 6/25/13) as Mercury's lord of Gemini, and thus the 'dispositor' of Jupiter in Gemini.
