Possible biblical meanings to the recent transit of Venus across the sun

Are you curious as to what signs the Lord might be giving us with recent the celestial events? Well two interesting websites that offer some fascinating information regarding the relationship of the earth to Venus as well as insights into the symbolism of the planet Venus as it applies to Jesus Christ.
