I hope you are well and enjoy every season with its vitality and zest for life every season started this year with a bang, because not only the sun entered Aries on the 20th, but also Venus followed very closely behind and now the two are in a conjunction, a higher conjunction, so this is an event that is actually quite rare.
Only every eight years the Sun and Venus come together in a close hug in Aries in this particular part of your true horoscope, so the last time you were in March 2013 and before this March 2005 and so on and so on this year finds the exact conjunction, so the zero degree sphere, takes place on March 26th and that is of course very meaningful and especially meaningful when it makes some kind of interaction or aspect in your natal or true horoscope. It is also especially meaningful when it is near either the ascendant descendant. d is heaven or i see on your graph but what it really means is you have to look back eight years, 2013 and before that 2005 for the kind of lesson you are here to learn that Venus is a very important planet is astrology governs everything that has to do with what we love, what we do not love, what we value, what we do not like or what we are attracted to, what we attract, what you know that others are attracted to us feel.
It also describes a person's ability and willingness to give free, whether from time, affection, or money, you name it and yes, Venus has been shown time and again to be correlated with monetary currency and other commodities in financial astrology as well You basically know, when you think about it, Venus also rules Taurus and Libra, and Venus represents, that you know all of the things that make us feel good about ourselves and life in general, and live comfortable lives that make us feel good about ourselves and life in general Example this is what Turean wishes you need money or some kind of wealth in this life also venus represents uh all social interactions, you know our style of interacting with others, and of course it also represents our relationship with ourselves not just too other people, and I think this is the important lesson that this particular Sun-Venus conjunction is bringing us this year and every eight years uh, it's about u Our self-esteem is about what we value, what we don't, what we find beautiful and desirable in others, but also in ourselves how strong is your self-esteem how strong do you believe in yourself to attract the right kind of people into In your life and when you do this you can see a repetitive pattern that makes up all retrograde Venus cycles and that's part of it, this conjunction is part of it, but let's first look at what eris represents and that then what Venus represents and what possibilities there are for this conjunction. Superior conjunction between su dden venus so Eris is the first sign of the zodiac it also marks the beginning of the astrological year and it's about the first time and about life it's about loving yourself it's about doing the right thing it's about passion, it's about moving forward, feeling alive, it's about confidence and it's also about action there's nothing more depressing to an Aries or someone with strong areas in chat than inaction trying to hold them back oh you can easy to get hurt and Venus in Aries is really no different vino cineres is very independent very passionate also very spontaneous brave is not interested in other things that others think and um knows what she likes and what she doesn't like, what she loves and what she does does not love, tends to fall in love very quickly, but also fall out of love if necessary some of the examples of famous people with expulsion ng are Marilyn tomorrow elizabeth taylor for example rihanna george clooney robert downey jr ma riah carey and and so on jennifer aniston historically we also have queen victoria, who was known to be very passionate behind closed doors, and liza minnelli sigmund freud gabriela nuntius a very sensual person who actually has Venus in Aries Natalie and he said love is not something you feel, it is something you do and that gives you an idea of how much action and life to the fullest for this Placement are important and the sun comes together in such a tight hug that it is called Kazimi or Sinichi. This is a moment of ultimate clarity.
The sun illuminates all the deepest depths of our soul and since we are talking about Venus, it illuminates how we think about ourselves, how we feel about our existing relationships. If we feel that we are being given, you know that the Taking freebies in our lives is solid. It's really honest inside us and it also gives us opportunities to heal our problems or patterns that you know, unhelpful patterns in our relationships.
It allows us to discover hidden blocks in order to have a happy and healthy love life basically allows us to see that hidden blockages are lighting up in relation to money and how much we believe we deserve it and how much abundance we have believing that we deserve it or not deserve it in this life it is fantastic to see if we are in the wrong relationship in a toxic relationship and especially helps us with Aries, helps us to go on bravely and without hesitation it is also perfect to date with an ex if it's a toxic relationship, it's also good to let us know that the relationship was indeed good and worth reviving excellent for um, to strengthen the dialogue and you knows how close we feel to the important people in our life in Aries it is fantastic to set healthy boundaries between us and then how much we give and how much we do take and also in friendships, not just in love and finances, you know, here we draw a strong line and say that I don't do that anymore, if you do it too give me just as much as I give you or that's it, that is the end and that is something we have to do sometimes it is also about expressing what we need both emotionally and financially, so it is a special time and it shines a special place in your true horoscope and this rarely happens all eight years, as we have already said. Where is Aries in your chart and do you know that you already feel that there are some problems you are thinking about and that you seem to be clearing up? and trust me, if you think about whatever the problem and whatever the blockages may be, you will be enlightened in the next few days because that is it and you will find your answers and you will have deep knowledge of what they are correct course of action for you. So pay special attention to it.
Go back in 2013 and 2005 to understand what the recurring lesson is for you and if you definitely want to book a reading with me, I am available and we can work that through together
People born during the Sun conjunct Venus transit are creatures of love, balance and good tastes. They possess a lot of affection and love having a busy social life or going out with their friends. The Sun conjunct Venus is making them more graceful, charming and pleasing. .
This episode of Crash Course is brought to you by SquareSpace Venus was the Roman goddess of love, and frankly, if you've ever seen her after sunset, hanging like a diamond in the twilight, the planet Venus is breathtakingly beautiful. The only problem? Venus is hell. Venus is the second rock from the sun, closer to the sun than the earth.
It's the third brightest natural object in the sky after the sun and moon, and it's shockingly bright when you see it. In fact, people often think it's an airplane it's called a UFO. Like Mercury, it never gets far from the sun; at best it can reach about 45 °.
If you want to see it, the best time to see it is after sunset or before sunrise. Through a telescope you can see Venus in phases, just like the moon and Mercury. When it's on the other side of its orbit from Earth, we see the face lit up so that it looks full.
As it orbits the sun and approaches the earth in its orbit, from our point of view it gets bigger because it gets closer, but it also decreases; it is arched, then half full, then crescent shaped. When it gets between the sun and earth, it is as close as possible to us, some 45 million kilometers away. It's a very thin sickle at this point, but close enough to us that you can easily see the phase with binoculars.
Ironically, although we then only see a small part of it illuminated, it appears so large that it is actually brighter than when it is full but far away. The orbit of Venus around the sun is inclined a little more than 3 ° with respect to the earth. So, like the moon when viewed from Earth, Venus usually moves above or below the Sun in the sky as it orbits the Earth and advances in its orbit.
But here too, just like with the moon, things sometimes align just right and Venus happens right through the face of the sun. This event is called transit. During a solar eclipse, the moon can block the sun completely, but Venus is much farther away, so it can only block about a tenth of a percent of the sun.
We see the planet as an inky black circle in front of the face of the sun. Transits were very important centuries ago. Scientists realized that by accurately timing the start and end of a Venus transit and by applying a little geometry, they could figure out how far away Venus was and use it like a meter stick to measure the size of the entire solar system.
Large expeditions were sent to remote parts of the earth where the transits were visible, but it turned out that the earth's atmosphere just so obscured the disk of Venus that it is impossible to accurately time the transit. Scientists had to wait until we could use radar and other methods to get exact distances to planets in the solar system, but transits are still pretty amazing to watch. They are very rare: just as the orbits of Venus and Earth align, they occur in pairs that are eight years apart, but then not for over a century.
The last pair of Venus transits took place in 2004 and 2012. I was lucky enough to see both the 2004 and 2012 transits and they were totally cool. But the next one? December 10, 2117.
If you missed the last two, I'm sorry. Venus is sometimes so bright that you can see it in broad daylight; I did this myself. So here's an obvious question: why is Venus so bright? Telescope observations show that it is an almost structureless white disk, completely covered by a thick layer of cloud, and reflecting almost all of the sunlight that falls on it.
Okay, great, so that's why it's light, but why are its clouds so thick? Well, it turns out that Venus might be nice to look at from a distance, but up close, yike. In a sense, Venus is the planet in the solar system that most closely resembles Earth. It's just a bit smaller - 12,100 kilometers in diameter, about 95% the width of the earth - and is 80% the mass of the earth.
But if it's an Earth twin, it's the Evil Twin. Venus is closer to the sun. At a distance of about 110 million kilometers, 2/3 the distance of the earth from the sun, one would expect it to be warmer.
What you might not expect is its surface temperature to be 460 ° Celsius - that's 860 ° F, hot enough to melt lead. And it gets worse. Its air is almost entirely made up of carbon dioxide and the atmospheric pressure on Venus is 90 times the pressure of the earth! As if that wasn't bad enough, it's raining sulfuric acid too, but it's so hot that the drops evaporate before they hit the ground.
Yes. Venus is hell. Why? How did it get so hot? It turns out that Venus is a victim of a runaway greenhouse effect.
Long ago, Venus may have been more temperate and may even have oceans of liquid water. But the sun was cooler when it was younger, and it got hotter as it got older. At some point, it is thought, the sun warmed Venus so much that its oceans began to evaporate.
Water vapor is an excellent greenhouse gas, so the warming of Venus accelerated. It got so hot that the oceans boiled away. Any carbon dioxide dissolved in the water was released into the atmosphere, which further heated the planet and made the atmosphere extremely dense.
It got so hot that the CO2 was even burned off the rocks, like throwing gasoline on a blazing fire. The greenhouse effect was raging out of control at this point. Venus lacks a magnetic field, so it has no protection from the solar wind that blows pastit.
Over the course of billions of years, this removed many of the lighter elements and all of the water from the atmosphere. The resulting atmospheric chemistry is pretty insane compared to Earth. Sulfur dioxide is a popular molecule there, and clouds form from sulfuric acid.
These clouds are high above the surface and are very white and reflective. It's pretty incredible to think about. The sun warmed up, Venus warmed up, and then a series of events created a ridiculously hostile environment due to the runaway greenhouse effect.
Although Mercury is closer to the sun, Venus is much hotter! Given that, the last thing you could expect on Venus is… snow. Well, possibly; Observations show that something shines on the mountain tops, and snow goes with it. But it is not a water ice like on earth.
Minerals such as bismuthinite and galena are thought to be evaporated by the heat at lower elevations. They would then circulate into the atmosphere and deposit on mountain tops on the surface where it is cooler. If that's right then Venus is so bizarre it's literally snowing metal! Other strange things also happen on Venus.
For one, it has an incredibly slow rate of rotation: one day on Venus is roughly 243 Earth days! It rotates so slowly that you could jog at its equator faster than the planet rotates. Its slow spin is probably also the reason why it lacks a magnetic field, as the rotation is crucial in generating the magnetic fields of objects like the earth and the sun. Not only that, the planet is also spinning backwards! This is known as retrograde motion, and it basically means that the north pole of Venus has been swapped for its south pole: it's upside down.
It's not clear why that happened. Many ideas have been suggested, including a giant collision that halted the rotation of the planet, but at the moment the inertial rotation of Venus is still not fully understood. If you could survive, life on Venus would be really strange.
The thick clouds mean that it is almost as bright as dawn on earth, even though they are closer to the sun. The thick atmosphere also means that the surface temperature is roughly the same everywhere on the planet, from the pole to the equator. Because of its reverse rotation, the sun would rise in the west, and because of the slow rotation, its day is actually longer than its year! Calendars on Venus would be a disaster.
But calendars would probably be the least of your worries if you had to live there. Incidentally, Venus has no moon. Since it is closer to the sun, it is possible that any moon that it once had was disturbed by the sun's gravity and eventually thrown out of the grip of Venus.
It's also possible that in the beginning there just never was. And another fun fact: Venus is the most spherical of all planets. Because it spins so slowly, it doesn't arch at the equator due to centrifugal force like the earth does.
The diameter from pole to pole is almost the same as that through the equator. We don't have much data on the interior of Venus, although given its similar composition and size to Earth, it's not too insane to believe that it has a core, mantle, and crust like us. But even given the strange atmosphere, the surface of Venus is really different from ours.
Venus has no tectonic activity like the earth; Water is believed to be contributing to this, and Venus lost its water a long time ago due to the greenhouse effect. Still, the surface appears to be very young; About a thousand impact craters have been found and they are evenly distributed across the planet. The majority appear to be in pretty good shape, they haven't been eroded much, which suggests they aren't terribly old.
Additionally, the erosion we see seems to be roughly the same for all of these craters, which suggests that they are all roughly the same age! This is strange! All of this points to some kind of catastrophic event that resurfaced the planet about half a billion years ago. All of the older features were obliterated, and then large impacts over time created the craters we see today. But what could renew an entire planet? The counting of the volcanoes on Venus provides a big clue: there are 167 larger than 100 kilometers in diameter, a huge number.
These volcanoes could, over time, pump out enough lava to cover the entire surface of Venus. There is also plenty of indirect evidence that volcanic activity continues today: for example, a mountain on Venus, Idunn Mons, is unusually warm, suggesting that it might have magma below its summit. Also, sulfur dioxide levels dropped sharply in the 1980s, which could indicate a major volcanic event in the 1970s that emitted a lot of gas that then subsided.
It is possible, if somewhat speculative, that the entire planet is a super volcano, a giant pressure cooker made of barely limited magma. Every few hundred million years, the entire surface dissolves in a colossal eruption that covers everything with lava. Yikes Some volcanic features on Venus are different from those on Earth.
Without tectonics, slowly bubbling lava leaks from the interior of the planet can continue in one place for a long time. This creates so-called “pancake domes”: huge, flat, low domes. Many are tens of kilometers wide but less than a kilometer high.
The lava that formed them was probably really viscous, which is why the domes are flattened and spread out. The scorching surface temperature of Venus likely kept the lava hot and helped it to spread as well. Oh, and one final note: by international agreement, surface features on Venus - mountains, plains, craters, etc. - are all named after women or goddesses of various cultures.
This, of course, pays homage to the planet itself named after a goddess, but also? It's just cool. Today you learned that Venus is the same size as Earth, but with a super thick atmosphere. A runaway greenhouse effect makes them the hottest planet in the solar system.
It has the slowest speed of any planet and is spinning backwards. Tremendous volcanic activity resurfaced across the planet long ago and it can still be active today. Crash Course Astronomy is produced in collaboration with PBS Digital Studios.

After eight years, it returns to the same place in our sky on about the same date. This is known as the eight-year cycle of Venus, and stems from the fact that 13 Venusian orbits (8 x 224.8 days) very nearly equals eight Earth years. The cycle was known to, and of great interest to, ancient peoples such as the Maya. .
A Sun-Venus conjunction happens, on average, every eleven months. It lasts from ten to seventy days, according to the passage of Venus.
You know we managed to fly hundreds of thousands of miles into space, but when it comes to the earth we barely scratched the surface. The core of our planet is a great mystery full of secrets Well it's time to find out that the inner core of the earth is an extra hot solid sphere with an approximate radius of 760 miles, to put that into perspective, it's only 30% smaller than the moon, but if we've never been there how well did we figure that out, we got to know the core by observing the effects of gravity on objects on the surface of our planet from there it will estimated that the mass of the earth at your bathroom scale is 5.6 sextillion tons.
If the density of anything on the surface is not much lower than the average density of nuclei Scientists have found that most of the earth's mass is towards the center of our planet, it is estimated that more than 80% of the nucleus consists of one of the most common elements in our galaxy fire, but the iron on the surface of the earth is somehow limited. You are wondering how did iron get to the core? There is a simple explanation, the heavy elements somehow literally huddled towards the center of the earth and at I'mpardon the pun of research was done to find out how most of the earth's surface is made up of rocks called silicates, and the molten iron had some difficulty getting through it to help you understand how water struggles to get through a greasy surface, but in 2013, Wendy Mao and her team at Stanford discovered a possible solution for how this happened. They started an experiment to see how iron and silica react when subjected to extreme pressure, so they used a diamond anvil cell in the core to squeeze the two substances under those conditions and they got that pressure 330 Giga Pascal, which is about 3.3 million times the atmospheric pressure of our planet, the molten iron slowly compresses through the silicate rock and they had their answer It took millions of years for the iron to reach the center, so it happened at a snail's pace, since there were no snails back then.
The iron had to guess how fast it should go, now that we've figured this out, how do we know how big the core is when seismology comes into play during an earthquake, planetary seismologists studied these vibrations and tried the reflections on the other Reading side, it's like Thor hitting one side of the planet with his hammer and thesismologists are hearing from the opposite end, but these vibrations also take different paths that they go through different parts of the planet and that affects the sound that they make the endlets make a little detour for a log Seismology is a pretty old field of science in the old days when vibrations occurred when scientists noticed something was wrong with them, these vibrations were s-waves and when they were about to show up on the other side , they just disappeared at first, they thought something was wrong wrong with i Your equipment and there was just no picture of the vibrations increasing, but as science progressed it turned out that these picky waves could only go through solid material, not liquid material. Something molten was present in the center of the earth preventing the vibrations from digging through, so they started digging into their data and mapped the paths of the seismic waves and found that the rocks were about 1800 60 miles from the Earth's surface turned into a liquid away, but there is also an interesting fact regarding the angle of play. Amon was a Danish seismologist and discovered a new wave pattern in the 1930s.
At first we had the S waves that didn't cross any liquid, but then there were also P waves that could travel through the core and appear on the opposite side of the planet when Inga proposed a theory that the core has two layers, the solid inner core, which is about 3,700 miles below the surface, and the molten outer core, which is about 1,860 miles below our feet, when advanced seismographs were invented, their theory was confirmed, but also that k 40 years, now, since we figured out the structure, let's talk about how hot the core is and why we've already found that we can't put a thermometer there to study the temperatures, so scientists tried to find out by putting in In 2013, a team of French researchers came up with the most precise number we have had in years kill. They put pure iron through high pressure, which was almost higher than that of the core, to get their results, the temperature of the inner core is about nine thousand eight hundred degrees while the melting point of pure iron is about 2800 degrees and its melting point is about eleven thousand degrees The fluctuations in these temperatures come from considering the extreme pressure they are under in the core, other elements inside the core could also lower the temperature by about 400 degrees, but the reason it stays solid is because of the slow cooling of the outer core and it is the compression, the inner core spinning faster than the earth, caused by the thermal activity in our planet that strangely creates the magnetosphere. It takes a lot of time, pardon the pun for warmth, to leave Earth, but I'll get to that in a moment.
There are three main reasons the earth is still boiling, the first is because the core has remained hot since our planet was formed about four and a half billion years ago. Remember this number because towards the end I will explain how this happened, that the heat has not yet been lost, the earth only cools down by about 200 degrees every billion years, second, it generates heat from the friction of the dense materials, as they're moving, and the final reason it's so high is the decay of radioactive elements going through the core, remember the P-waves I told you about earlier in the core, this shows it's still must be another element that we haven't figured out yet, but nickel is one of them, but when scientists ran some tests on nickel, the P-waves weren't slowing enough, so metaphorically they started digging in 2015, a new study by Durham University It has been claimed that 90% of Earth's sulfur is in the core, so maybe this could be the missing element. About four and a half billion years ago, the earth collided with a large planetary body that eventually tore apart and formed our planet, and when the impact happened, the earth's mantle melted and some sulphurous liquids squeezed through the ruins and reformed it , some of it was likely lost in space, but the rest was confirmed by nuclear scientists at Durham University, who confirmed this theory by measuring the isotopic ratios of the elements in the mantle they compared them to meteorites that may have been part of the original shape of the Earth, the problem was that there were so many different elements in the earth's mantle that it is quite difficult to draw firm conclusions, so they came up with another idea.
Copper is usually bound to sulfur, so they analyzed the copper from the earth's mantle and crust. Art mass spectroscopes are still with me, good for you. They found that there was a tiny little difference in copper ratios between the Earth's mantle samples and the teteorite samples, which confirmed the theory that Earth originally collided with another body and the largest Part of her coat just splashed around in space.
We also know that the core is made up of some sulfur hopefully soon we'll be able to figure out what the other trace elements are so to answer your last question yes the center of the earth is a hard core yes you've been waiting for it, or hey if if you are learning something new today then like the article and share it with a friend and here are some other cool articles i think you will enjoy, just click left or right and remember to stay on the bright side of life
Normally, it is said that Venus is combust within 6 degrees but in experience I have seen Venus giving results of combustion even when it is 20 degrees apart. So, we can say if Sun-Venus are together in a house then there is an effect of combustion,no matter how slightly.
If the conjunction of Venus and the Sun occurs in the lst house the person doesnt wana give much respect to scholars, does not have many children, at times very cruel and trouble others. Rest all will be depending on the sign and house placement of this conjunction also the aspects on them. whether Rx or combust etc.
The Cycle of Venus
Venus begins her cycle at the inferior conjunction with the Sun while retrograde and closest to the Earth. At the cycle's midpoint, the superior conjunction occurs on the far side of the Sun.
If Venus is in the same sign as your Sun:
Basically, if your Sun and Venus are in the same sign, there's a clear connection between your personality and the types of relationships that you seek out. You're also able to express affection to others more easily. .
The average temperature on Venus is 864 degrees Fahrenheit (462 degrees Celsius). Temperature changes slightly traveling through the atmosphere, growing cooler farther away from the surface. Lead would melt on the surface of the planet, where the temperature is around 872 F (467 C). .
Venus is sometimes called Earth's twin because Venus and Earth are almost the same size, have about the same mass (they weigh about the same), and have a very similar composition (are made of the same material). They are also neighboring planets.
