Like two parallel universes merging or intersecting. There will be a predawn occultation of Venus on December 7.
An occultation is an event that occurs when one object is hidden by another object that passes between it and the observer. Occultations of Venus by the Moon happen every six months or so.
The best places for watching the occultation of Venus by the Moon is at 6:43 a.m. Fairbanks Alaska or anywhere from Alaska, Yukon, British Columbia and the Northwest Territories. People from that part of the globe can watch as the moon occults– covers over – Venus for an hour or more before sunrise.
An Occultation is also known as a Parallel Conjunction, as “normal” astrological angles (such as conjunctions) are measured on Longitude only. When two planets conjoin not just on Longitude but also on Latitude (also known as the Parallels), it’s considered a Parallel Conjunction, and its interpretation is given much more power.
Everyone is fascinated with the occult these days. Occult means hidden and implies mysterious, mystical, psychic, magical, secret energies and experiences. Sounds exciting…
Did you know that a solar or lunar eclipse is an occult occurrence? In astronomical terms, an eclipse of the sun is an occultation of the Moon in front of the Sun. A transit is when one heavenly body passes in front of another, as viewed from Earth, we can see one move across the other in the background.
Venus will disappear behind the lit side of the waning crescent moon and then reappear on the unilluminated side of the crescent.
The moon will already be in Scorpio. The astrology of the conjunction occurs at 9:25 am PDT. Views from North America, Central America and the Caribbean will be especially spectacular, as the two bright beauties jostle for center stage. The occultation is visible from the continental U.S. but only in daylight. However, December 7 is also a great time to try to see Venus in the daytime, either with binoculars or your unaided eye.
What do occultations mean?
They are like super powerful eclipses. The Moon eclipses Venus and the two feminine planets appear to merge. The Moon is the Mother in Astrology, unconditional love and nurturing. The Moon is the Unconscious, the High Priestess in the tarot, she is the realm of the psyche and the womb. The Moon is cyclical time, menstruation, ovulation, the dreamtime, night-vision, owls, Goddess Diana, the sign of Cancer, Mermaids,
Venus is love, the heart, self-love, world-love, romantic and sexual love, agape.
The Moon is receptive, Venus is a seductress, active. From an occult point of view,the energies of this love occultation should bring you to clarity around the question of giving and receiving. This yin/yang love energy has been floating around in my unconscious mind the last few days.
This is an eclipse of love by love.
This is a beautiful symbol of combining Feminine intuition with heart. The 6th and the 4th chakras.
Use watermelon tourmalines if you have them to hold the energy of this love occultation.
I would advise you to focus on connecting with the energy of the Moon Venus occultation especially as it in Scorpio in Astrological calculations.
It is an auspicious time Let go and release any old ties that are binding your heart and keeping you in a false idea of separation. Healing sexual shame, abuse and woundedness. Healing your heart chakra.
Allow yourself to receive from the Moon, unconditional love from the planet Venus the ability to give love wholeheartedly.
“I open my heart and receive the unconditional love of the Divine Mother Goddess.”
I open my womb to the Light for it to be healed and made whole”
Use copper to honor Venus. It is Monday,the Moon’s day and silver for the Moon.
