On. June 8th 2004, Venus crossed the path of the sun, marking the beginning of an 8-year Venus cycle that ends on June 6th of 2012, just before the end of the Mayan Calendar and the Great Galactic Year.
This transit released very powerful energies to harmonize the masculine or patriarchal forces of the Sun with the heartful, loving energies associated with Venus. Many indigeneous people, consider the eight years between these two dates as an evolutionary doorway or gestational period for the release of new ideas and world change. Potential anniversary dates that might trigger other events on Earth.
