The Conjunction

27 Comments

July 1st saw a conjunction or ‘close approach’ between Venus and Jupiter in the western horizon. At the moment of closest approach, Venus was at mag -5.3, and Jupiter at mag -1.8, both in the constellation Leo. Details from In-The-Sky.org

The Conjunction

Venus and Jupiter,
kissing in the skies,
sink together slowly
before our very eyes,
bedding and bonding
way up high,
supreme mythical beings
known for aeons gone by.

      • You’re Welcome…I haven’t been around much… creating some sense of order out my usual comfortable chaos has been a chore, so I have missed many posts, maybe this is the right way back to being me so I’ll be around more
        I enjoy your words of wisdom you share…
        Take Care…You Matter…

        • I’m not around so often either just now, MaryRose. I’m still waiting to move house, maybe that’ll happen before Christmas, but who can say? I too have missed many posts and am trying to catch up when I can. Blogging’s like that, ‘eh, sometimes life gets in the way 🙂
