How Was Your Venus Transit Day?
Born to Ride, Painting by Ray McCarty. A Venus cowgirl, just like the Kougaress.
Late night yowls, my heart-playful Big Cat Beauties... milder on the tame prairie with a beautiful blue sky... when the Kougaress walked down to the mailbox the neighbor's cows were resting in the shade close to the fenceline... so this Big Cat talked to them and earned a long curious looks from some of them... best of all, the smell reminded the Kougaress of visiting her grandfather and his cattle so long ago, such nice memories... a sorta interesting Venus transit day... on her way back to the house, this Big Cat saw a moderately sized box turtle... and an actual honeybee gathering pollen from alfalfa blooms... so she's hoping there's a wild thriving colony somewhere.

Zoronado, Black Stallion Shapeshifter
By Savanna Kougar
The full moon blazed high in the heavens as Zoronado galloped on the trail at the base of the mountain. His blood raced furiously. Not because of his fast pace. A wild horse herd was in danger from ruthless poachers who planned to sell those they killed to a local slaughterhouse that distributed to European markets.
Earlier in the evening, Zoronado had overheard the four men's cruel plan as they wolfed down steaks and guzzled beer at the Hole In the Wall bar and grill. They'd scouted out a small herd, and knew where the horses rested for the night.
Many of the mares had foals. The stinky brutes had laughed loudly as they discussed the way they planned to ambush the entire herd with their high-powered rifles, then load the carcasses onto a semi-truck.

Subject: Amazon Buys Avalon Books & Its 3,000+ Backlist Titles
Date: June 4, 2012 12:31:39 PM EDT
Amazon has acquired Avalon Books, a publisher with more than 3,000 backlist books that focused on romance, mystery and western novels.
Amazon made the move as the publishing world gathered for BEA in New York City. Avalon is over 60-years old, founded by Thomas Bouregy. The books will be now be published under Amazon Publishing imprints like Montlake Romance and Thomas & Mercer.
Publisher Ellen Bouregy Mickelsen had this statement: "I've been running Avalon Books -- which was founded by my father -- since 1995, and it is time for me to explore the next chapter of my life -- I chose Amazon Publishing because they care deeply about the writers, readers, and categories that have long mattered to our family business and they are uniquely positioned to assure that our titles make the leap forward into the digital future. I am pleased they have asked me to assist during a period of transition to provide continuity and support for our authors."

The intense cosmic activity of June is in high gear -- Venus leading the way with her rare transit across the Sun on June 5...
Then, on June 6 with an ever-fun meeting between the social Gemini Sun and romantic Venus, sparks will fly, you're sure to be constantly entertained! This is a short-lived transit, but one that inspires indulgence and flirtation all day long.
Next, on June 7, the planet of communication, Mercury, will move into Cancer, an emotional homebody. For the next couple of weeks, conversations will veer toward all things domestic with some emotional biases thrown in. At times you'll be so in tune with what everyone else is feeling, you'll be practically telepathic, but there will also be days, when you'll let your feelings bias your judgments, leading to some rather heated discussions.
The last, and unfortunately most challenging, transit in this week's pile-up will be a clash between the Sun in Gemini and Mars in Virgo. If you're not careful, the aggressive, competitive nature of Mars will come out in full force, creating unnecessary stress, tension and arguments. Therefore, it's imperative that you either focus your energies on intense projects that will keep you busy non-stop, or find some incredible physical activities to channel this energy. Get pro-active, and you'll accomplish amazing feats!
Between days of flirtation, unbridled emotions and all-out aggression, you may start to wonder just what you need from your relationships.
Meaning of a Rare Event: Venus Transits the Face of the Sun

Meaning of a Rare Event: Venus Transits the Face of the Sun NASA
The transit of Venus across the face of the Sun is one of the rarest astronomical events. This coming transit of Venus will take place on June 5-6, 2012 toward sundown, and is the last event of its kind this entire century. The next will take place in December of 2117. Why are Venus and this event so special? The secret to understanding the meaning of Venus transiting the solar sphere is to be found in the planet Earth and the effect of Venus on us. It is we, here on Earth, who see this happening, not the other planets. Because this event is so rare, astrologers have not had that much experience interpreting this, so please bear with me.
The planetary orbits are placed at intervals outward from their center the sun, much like the esoteric chakras run up and down our spine, at least figuratively. If you want to better understand this event, you might have to relax, let your mind rest, and just take it in.
We all live here on Earth, for us the heart and center of our little world. I will put aside my evangelism about heliocentric astrology and the fact that the Sun is the center of all life for us and that even our beloved natal astrology-chart wheel is nothing more than a snapshot of the sun-centered solar system from Earth’s view. I will visit that thought another day.
For now I will give a key insight for you to consider as regards the planets in their order out from the Sun: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn. That key is this:
The inner is always the key to the outer.
