Venus Transit and the Color Green

Before I get into today’s post, I just want to thank you, my fellow bloggers and faithful readers, for the time you take to LIKE and comment on my posts.  It feels so good to be part of such a wonderful community of people, many of whom I’ve never met but feel a definite closeness with.    If I don’t get back to you right away, please forgive me.  Sometimes it gets overwhelming and yet I just can’t stop following all of the blogs I do.  They’re all great!!!

Maybe this Venus Transit, which is the energy of love and the balancing of feminine and masculine energies is having more of an impact than we ever imagined 🙂  It’s taking place tonight between 6:00 and sunset my time in Arizona.  Click here for viewing information.  As always, never look directly at the sun.  Use those viewing glasses or do what I’m going to do … watch the coverage of it on the internet after it’s over.

Today I wanted to do something in the color green.  I don’t know why really but I love the color, so finding this shot of the palms felt just right.  I found them at a mall where it’s nice and cool … yeah, baby!

I looked up what green means and here’s what I found:  Green is the color of nature and health. It represents growth, nature, money, fertility and safety. Green is a relaxing color that is easy on the eye and has a healing power to it. It is often used to represent anything having to do with health. Many pharmaceutical and nutritional companies use green in their logos and material to advertise safe natural products. Dark green is commonly associated with the military, money, finance, and banking. However it can also be associated with being new or inexperienced as being green or a “green horn”. Green is becoming a very popular color in design for web sites.  If you have a favorite color and want to see what is symbolizes, here’s the source I used:

I edited this photograph, using a pencil sketch effect, in fotosketcher and am pleased with the effect it produced.  Namaste’ and Happy Venus Transit 🙂


The Color of Kindness

My religion is very simple. My religion is kindness.
~Dalai Lama

Thank you to all my readers who sent good wishes for a nice vacation.  I do appreciate all of you.  I wish I could read all of your blog posts and send my comments.  I’m trying to catch up.  May take a while.

Today’s image is one that I took while on vacation in Nevada this past week.  My sister-in-law, Carryl, got permission from her neighbor for me to photograph this unusual flower. Her yard is lush with beautiful, colorful plants and flowers. I admire people who have a green thumb (and whose husband is a landscaper) :-). I have no idea what this flower is but I thought it to be just lovely.

Kindness (to me) is the color of purple.  It’s also the color I use when I meditate, visualizing the violet flame of healing, forgiveness, protection and peace.  Namaste’
