The Venus transit began just after 10pm GMT and continued until approximately 6am GMT. It was a momentous event from both a scientific point of view and astrologically. Therefore which ever way you look at it, last night's event will influence the way we perceive life for many years to come.
A Horizon programme on BBC2 last night outlined the scientific discoveries that it is hoped will result from the observation of the transit. It also gave a history of how our view of the universe and life itself has changed since the last Venus transit, the first to be observed by 'modern' scientific eyes.
The next transit will occur in 2117.
On a personal level the rest of this week would be wisely spent reassessing our relationships and what it is we value in life.
