CosmiTec's Love Letter, Issue #128 -- Venus Cycles, Marriages and Divorces (Part 1)
July 21, 2015
This Love Letter comes in a wider format because we wanted to include a graph (image) that would not be readable when posted in the usual format.
We want you to know we're heading for such a monumental change.
Currently, we're still in an earth cycle that started in 1802 and we are going towards an air cycle for the next 200 years.
Let's take a look:
The Great Mutation on December 21, 2020 at 0° Aquarius will mark momentous changes for the whole world we cannot imagine yet.
Because the conjunction takes place at the Winter Solstice (Northern hemisphere) and is at a 'critical degree' (0° Aquarius) of a complete transformation (180° change of course), this really points to a BIG shift that will manifest without delay.
Look at what happened when we got a glimpse of the conjunction in the element air between 1980-1981.
This conjunction resulted in the (instant) release of numerous people's (personal) computers (Sinclair, Commodore, Atari, Apple...) and the introduction of the internet later.
The Great Mutation in air signs starting in late 2020 will no longer focus on tangible goods, materialism and economy, (paper) money and possessions, territory, banks and governments etc. but will shift and focus on relationships, connecting people and networking, human interests, sharing freely, a huge increase in digital and virtual media, artificial intelligence (AI), new means of transportation, zero-point energy (focus on 'the air' as a means to provide energy), a wireless world (perhaps no longer connected through electronic devices but likely through photonic devices), a renewed view on 'mind over matter', the dissolving borders/boundaries of countries, a new genre of music, social changes, the end of corporations the way we know them now, no more focus on money and big profits, a change in employer-employee relationships etc.
Earth is dark and heavy, while the air element is the opposite, very light and this paradigm shift will likely release quite a load from the shoulders of humanity.
Things will indeed become 'lighter', more open, more fraternal, less heavy, less confined but also more volatile.
Unfortunately, we're not there yet and still have to go through a true clearing and cleansing phase, one of breaking down the 'old' and that's the meaning of the current waning (Last Quarter) Jupiter-Saturn square (that will be followed by another clearing and cleansing phase: the waning Saturn-Neptune square).
Though every era has its challenges, it's certainly thrilling to look forward to a paradigm shifting period in the not so distant future.
It also gives a very profound understanding of what's happening now in this crumbling materialistic world in which money has become the ultimate purpose and goal of life.
This will no longer apply after the Great Mutation.
In our featured article we delve deeper into some research regarding the Venus cycle/phases at the time of a marriage and the outcome of the marriage (lasting or divorcing).

In general and on a mundane level, events are likely to happen around August 3-4, August 10, August 17, August 25 and/or August 31.
During this month of August 2015, a couple of planetary configurations will affect some birthdays in particular:
Saturn stations and turns direct again at 28° Scorpio around August 2.
This station will mark the whole month and focuses on debt, loans, taxes, inheritances and other shared resources.
In this position, Saturn will redefine and reassess security needs as well as shared resources.
Also, stationing Saturn in the fixed water sign Scorpio is extremely tenacious, persevering, conservative and strict and holding to power in forceful a way.
Saturn is in a most obstructive and defensive position and may have tyrannical traits.
Because Scorpio is also about sex and underground activities, we expect Saturn's last station and change of direction in Scorpio (before it enters Sagittarius) to trigger some releases related to sex abuse and sex scandals.
Around the same day of August 2 Jupiter at 28° Leo squares stationing Saturn at 28° Scorpio.
Because of its station, Saturn is the stronger of the two and will block progress.
There are still blockages, restrictions at work and chances are the governments, banks and the corporate world (represented by powerful Saturn) still have the last word.
Early August can be a bummer for many, the more so because 28° in fixed signs is a very tenacious degree as well as a separative one.
There is dissatisfaction and every time you assume to be able to move forward, you are blocked again.
Rulers, regulations and people in a responsible position tend to be strict.
This waning Jupiter- Saturn square is the aspect of austerity.
This aspect also points to a clash between scientific views and (religious) beliefs, between the rulings of a judge and the law.
Anyway, this aspect does not favor progress just now.
In the introduction to our January 21 Newsletter (Issue #122), we discussed this waning aspect and its influence on world events and the European Union in specific.
This waning square marks the beginning of a clearing, cleansing and breaking up/breaking down period that will last till its conjunction late 2020 which will mark the beginning of a new era.
What this new era will likely bring is described above in the introduction to this Love Letter.
Around August 3-4 there is breaking news and/or a message about a missing person, a dissolving bond, someone leaving, a hospitalization or a drowning.
Retrograde Venus and Jupiter meet at 28° Leo while they both square stationing Saturn around August 4-5.
In this position Venus loves solitude, a peaceful home and time alone.
It's a separative configuration, the more so in Leo, the sign of love.
In some instances, this combo marks infidelity, changing the partner for someone else.
Doing home improvements is favored now as well as travel (alone).
In general, don't expect too much optimism around these early August days because there are too much blocking forces at work that withhold your hopes and expectations in many ways.
Around August 6 Mercury and Venus conjoin at 27° Leo while they square stationing Saturn.
This configuration too is separative but it favors travel and making trips.
Indeed, while the early August days are not so auspicious for your love life and relationships with beloved ones, they are favorable for travel, doing home improvements, study and artistic projects with tangible goods.
The day after, around August 7, Mercury and Jupiter meet at 29° Leo before Mercury enters Virgo on the same day.
In this position, Mercury, the messenger meets with a religious person, teacher or lawyer before it enters a new room represented by Virgo.
There can be inspiring news that will have to be worked out yet in full detail.
This Mercury-Jupiter conjunction may bring some good, uplifting or fortunate news.
Mars enters fiery Leo around August 8-9 and is less impulsive but still assertive and action-oriented.
This is an encouraging position for Mars to be in.
Mars needs some fun and drama and will show itself when necessary.
Around August 10-11 Jupiter changes signs and enters Virgo, the sign of its detriment.
This is a frustrating combo because Jupiter of high hopes and concepts is confronted with an environment of down-to-earth details.
The gap between the hope and ideals and the material outcome can be big.
In other words, the large concepts are lost in the small print or in the practical implementation.
Perhaps you worry too much about the details and are (too) critical towards legal, religious and/or political matters and views.
Mercury, the messenger, at 8° Virgo opposes Neptune at 8° Pisces around August 13.
With both planets very strong in their own sign, they are able to act upon themselves.
There is confusion and the information or facts are distorted.
You are presented an illusion instead of the facts but you are also able to present information yourself in a distorted way.
But to whom's advantage?
It's a foggy aspect in any way.
The Sun and Venus of beloved ones join at 22° Leo around August 15.
Mid August seems to bring a karmic encounter, a fatal attraction, for good or ill.
If you are born around January 25-26, March 11, April 25-26, June 11-12, July 28-29, September 13-14, October 29 or December 12-13 the time frame between August 16-19 suggests hardship.
There can be hospitalization, confinement, not being able to live together with someone, disharmony.
You may have difficulties to adapt and/or may need to fight for your honor.
Moreover, it may take these birthdays to solve their problems till August 21 and they should also beware of theft, lies and secrets.
The Sun at 28° Leo squares stationing Saturn at 28° Scorpio around August 21-22.
This waning square in fixed signs presents a bummer and mishap.
It's a very tenacious combo though and there are tireless efforts to get attention and approval.
But at too high a cost; you feel depleted and exhausted.
Around August 23 the Sun enters Virgo.
Beware of physical injuries around this day.
In Virgo, the Sun is focused on work and health and wants to get everything organized well.
If you are born around January 31, March 16-17, May 1-2, June 17-18, August 3, September 19, November 3-4 or December 18, you may feel weak physically around August 25-26.
Around August 26-27 the Sun and Jupiter conjoin at 3° Virgo.
Some of you may consult a medical doctor.
There is good recovery under such a conjunction and renewed hope.
Around August 27 Mercury, the messenger, enters Libra, the sign of the ever balancing scales.
There are successful agreements even though finances may be an issue still.
Mercury conjoins the North Node of the Moon at 2° Libra around the August 29 Full Moon.
This Full Moon is also the 1st SuperMoon in a series and indicates a hectic and very busy time.
Expect job changes, more changes of the place (travel and moves) but most often with a positive outcome.
Because of the SuperMoon, there can be extreme weather here and there (the Moon is now closest to the earth).

What's New on Our Web Site?We updated two celebrity pages, both with the addition of their surprise marriages on the same day of July 4, 2015: Ashton Kutcher and Billy Joel.
We added another celebrity horoscope: George Clooney.
Venus Cycles, Marriages and Divorces (Part 1)While reading Michel Finey's brilliant, very well-researched and innovative book 'The Sacred Dance of Venus and Mars' ( see our book reviews ) our interest was piqued to find out if the Venus and/or Mars cycles (phases) had any influence on lasting marriages.
We wanted to know in the first instance if there was any correlation between the Venus cycle or Venus phases on the day of one's marriage and the endurability of the marriage.
To find this out we analyzed the marriage dates of the longest marriages ever and compared these with a data-set of marriage dates that ended in divorce.
To find the longest marriages we made use of two Wikipedia lists:
The graph below sums up the results neatly.
When looking at the graph you will notice that 34 out of 119 marriages were concluded after Venus reached maximum elongation as a morning star.
Another peak is found BEFORE Venus reached its maximum elongation as an evening star.
There were no long lasting marriages concluded on a day when Venus went direct nor during the superior conjunction of Venus with the Sun.
This may give the impression that when Venus reaches its maximum elongation in the west (as a morning star) a long lasting marriage may result.
However, before you jump to conclusions too soon, we have to compare these results with our database of marriage dates ending in divorce to put the results in perspective.
It would be unscientific to just show our stats in an isolated way without comparing them with a control group.
Only by comparing the results, we will be able to present them in perspective and find out about the relevance of the Venus cycle and different Venus phases.
In the 2nd part of this article we will present the results about the Venus cycles/phases and marriage dates ending in divorce and post some conclusions.
