According to a lot of buzz on the more astrological and supernatural parts of the web, the transit is associated with the return of the Divine Feminine and Aphrodite, Goddess of Love (who according to the lectures I'm listening to right now is not EXACTLY the goddess of love, but more the sexual rapture part of the equation;the Venus Transit is thus a kind of New Age Rapture). How some people will attribute legendary significance to this bit of synchronized clockwork in the sky.

Never mind that the transit looked nothing like the image above. We stood in line in blazing heat for a chance to peer at our nearest neighbor's day in the sun. And then returned to our air-conditioned offices to look at on-line images, which were much more dramatic. Still, I can say I was there for something that won't occur again for another 105 years.

|Better than a pinhole camera or special glasses|
|Pretty much what I saw through the scope.(From 2004 transit.)|

...Venus, make her fair
A lovely girl with sunlight in her hair
And take the brightest stars up in the skies
And place them in her eyes for me
Venus, goddess of love that you are
Surely the things I ask
Can't be too great a task."
