When the Goddess is "Exposed", People Die
In Response To: Double Drats!! ()

Yuya Joe Trainer of Toronto the Good emailed me to say that the ~3,176 year interval between catastrophes is an integer multiple of the Venus Cycle of 243 years, and that an orbital resonance phenomenon may be at play here. There are an unlucky 13 Venus Cycles in that interval.

This got me to thinking about the passage in the Book of Exodus Chapter 33 where "the Lord" presented her backside to Moses on the mountain. This episode was part of an Exodus event. It seems then to associate the Venus Passage (in which Venus comes between the sun and earth and "exposes" her "dark side") with great catastrophe.

I did a quick google search and found some interesting pages about the uneasy marriage between Venus and the Earth. The relationship between Earth and Venus is a little "stormy" in that the orbital coupling is actually not fully stable but meta-stable. The 243 year Venus cycle remains fairly constant (at least in recent memory), but the timing of Venus transits has changed in the past two millennium (in the years 303 AD and 1528 AD) and is predicted to change again in 2846 AD. One theory is that the Venus and Earth coupling is effected by another strained marriage, that between our sun and its "dual" (a dark star/twin sun), and that this tango is also the root cause of precession of the equinoxes on Earth.


Explanations of the Venus Transit and Venus Cycle/Passage:

While Venus conjunctions are frequent events, Venus Passages, when the light of the sun sends the energy of Venus, the planet of love and beauty, to the earth are rare events. This is because the orbital planes of Venus and the earth are at an angle to each other and Venus passages only occur in the window where they intersect.

The Venus passages follow two cycles, each with a period of 243 years (Thus, there are 243 years between the Venus passages 1761/67 and 2004/12 and 243 years between those 1631/39 and 1874/82). Since the time of rotation of Venus around its own axis is 243 days, the earth will then have revolved 243 times around the sun as Venus has rotated 365 times around its own axis. What this means is that in the time between two Venus passages, Venus will rotate 365 times, the number of days in an earth year, around its own axis! Of course we may dismiss this as a coincidence, but if we don't, what are we to believe? Explain this someone!

The transits repeats every 243 years after 4 transits at intervals of 105.5, 8, 121.5 and 8 years. 152 Venus synodic orbits are roughly equal to 243 solar years, and 5 Venus synodic orbits are roughly equal to 8 solar years plus 0.83 days. Transits of Venus can last up to 6 hours.

Thus, the 243-year cycle is relatively stable, but the number of transits and their timing within the cycle will vary over time.

Orbital Resonance:

... the orbital periods of Venus (224.701 days) and Earth (365.256 days) are in an 8 year (2922 days) resonance with each other. In other words, in the time it takes Earth to orbit the Sun eight times, Venus completes almost exactly thirteen revolutions about the Sun.

There are 243 years between a pair of passages and thus the Earth will have revolved 243 times around the Sun, while Venus has revolved on its own axis 365 times - which is the length of time in days that the Earth revolves around the Sun. The cross-links are amazing and known to the Mayans for several thousand years.

Venus races for a period of 243 years to catch up 79 minutes earlier with Earth on June 8 th. After that, Venus takes it easy over the next 8 years in order to arrive 149 minutes later on June 6 th 2012. one is not ready to recognize the true cause for the precession of the Earth - the movement of the Sun around its dual.

Aztec Venus Chart

There are almost exactly 5 of these Venus-Sun conjunction cycles in 8 Earth years, with the result that 5 successive inferior conjunctions of Venus form an almost perfect pentagonal pattern in the zodiac.

The pattern of 105.5, 8, 121.5 and 8 years is not the only pattern that is possible within the 243-year cycle, due to the slight mismatch between the times when the Earth and Venus arrive at the point of conjunction. Prior to 1518, the pattern of transits was 8, 113.5 and 121.5 years, and the eight inter-transit gaps before the 546 CE transit were 121.5 years apart. The current pattern will continue until 2846, when it will be replaced by a pattern of 105.5, 129.5 and 8 years. Thus, the 243-year cycle is relatively stable, but the number of transits and their timing within the cycle will vary over time.

Venus was important to ancient American civilizations, in particular for the Maya, who called it Noh Ek, "the Great Star" or Xux Ek, "the Wasp Star"; they embodied Venus in the form of the god Kukulkn (also known or related to Gukumatz and Quetzalcoatl in other parts of Mexico). In the Dresden Codex, the Maya charted Venus' full cycle, but despite their precise knowledge of its course, there is no mention of the transit.

Venus and the Golden Ratio:

Venus orbits the Sun in 224.695 days while Earth orbits the Sun in 365.242 days, creating a ratio of 8/13 (both Fibonacci numbers)
