Venus Transit, Equal Pay Denied, and Water Ceremonies

What do these 3 things have in common?  Perhaps they are part of the Divine Feminine, and they coincide today.

Venus Transit:  Not again until 2117 will earthlings experience Venus transiting between Earth and Sun.  If you are one of the lucky ones not under cloud cover, as I am today, and you have special eclipse glasses, I hope to see your photos.

Equal Pay Denied!!:  I urge anyone interested in the Equal Pay for Women to go to momsrising.org and support our Washington State senators who voted YEA!

The Equal Pay Act was passed on June 10, 1963 – almost 50 years ago this coming Sunday and we are still nowhere near equal pay. Women in 2012, and moms in particular, are still paid less than men for doing the same job. The U.S. Census found that women who worked full-time, year-round on average still made 23 cents less for every dollar earned by men.[4] The wage gap for women of color is even more staggering.  Black and hispanic women who work full-time, year-round, make only 64 and 56 cents, respectively, for every dollar their white, non-hispanic male counterparts earn.
