Tonight: Venus, the planet named after the Goddess of Love, and Jupiter, the planet named after the God of Thunder, are crossing each others paths. To us, it will look like there is a ‘double star’ in the sky. If you’ve been watching, you will have seen them growing ever closer the past couple of weeks, and growing dangerously closer the past few nights!
From where we are, it will appear as though they’re almost touching. In reality, they are 416 million miles apart!!
What’s amazing is that they actually look very similar in size, even though Jupiter is by far the largest planet in our solar system, where as Venus is quite small, even smaller than the Earth.
This meeting in the sky is known as a conjunction. This conjunction between Jupiter and Venus usually isn’t rare, but this is the closest they will have been in 2,000 years! Together, they create the rare Star of Bethlehem.
The Star of Bethlehem Prophecy
The last time that this event occurred, it was said that the holy spirit of Christ came to the planet in an incarnation of a young newborn baby boy. Many on the internet are in wild debate and discussion about what this star means, or what meaning they can extract from it, at the very least.
Many are saying this is a sign of the end times, (some data on that here) and many are saying it is a sign of Christ returning.. (some stuff about that here)... Obviously, it’s difficult to extract specific meaning especially since our method of observation on stuff like this is very hard-lined science on one side, and very spiritual mystical information which sometimes doesn’t have as much tangibility as we would like.
We recently wrote some articles that sort of allude to both of these sides of the equation (linked in the text in the previous paragraph). Give them a read if you haven’t already, you might get the vibe we’re talking about ^_^
What we do know, is that no matter what happens, tonight is going to be a very beautiful night.
The best thing you can do, is enjoy it to the fullest
An hour after the sun sets is said to be the best time to see this magnificent sight.
So tonight, get ready for some intense energy! Just imagine both the chemical and vibrational energy these massive planets are giving off in a direct beam towards us! This is both a scientific and spiritual event.
Whether your belief lays in religion, science, spirituality or nothing at all, this can be a significant event for everyone. Whether you pay attention to it or not, the energy is present.
Take some time to do some introspection and observation. You hold the seed of love in your heart. Let it grow.
And if you just so happen to not be able to see the planets tonight from where you are in the world, just remember that it’s still there. You’re still “in the beam”. Pay attention to the thoughts that come to your mind, the feelings you experience and talk about it! Ask your friends what they’re experiencing and grow together as a community.
Allow this event to be more than a mundane passing of stars, but a merging of Love.
Thank you for reading <3
