The Great Jupiter-Venus Conjunction - So What Happened?
Did you enjoy the immense beauty and brightness of Venus and Jupiter as they traveled so close together through the night sky from late June through mid August? These two "Benefics" joined by close conjunction in tropical Leo on July 1 at 0:51 am Pacific Time and again on August 4th at 2:47 pm. Venus also crossed the face of the Sun on June 5th at her inferior conjunction, an event that won't happen again for 100 years! She is closest to earth in her trajectory through the ecliptic.
One might think - if astrology "works" - that some Venus event of significant proportion must have occurred on earth coincident with such potent Venusian energy. The events would have to be of a Venusian plus Jupiterian in nature. Venus rules love. Jupiter rules justice and generosity. Jupiter's expansive, happy influence is known to be forgiving and liberal. Soooo.... what happened in this seemingly endless world of woe? Our news has been far from Venusian! Or has it?
On June 26th, The Supreme Court of the United States rules that Gay Marriage is legal throughout the realm! Venus plus Jupiter delivered a full hat. There could not have been a more liberal "love event," nor one of larger impact!
