Gemini is the sign of twins and social connectivity. When Venus dances in Gemini, cerebral and creative energies soar. This transit brings opportunities to meet new brothers and sisters and open up our circle. The more we share and co-create, the more we expand. Expect more conversation, buzz and excitement in the air. This is also a great time to hone your writing skills. Games, puzzles or vocal activities like singing or chanting are highly encouraged, as Gemini is associated with the throat chakra.
Gemini is busy-bubbly, curious, flirtatious, insatiable. This influence is fleeting yet powerful, like a passing smile from an attractive stranger. With Venus in Gemini, life moves quickly. See the barefoot gypsy, running to catch the train, sunbeams shining in his hair.
In astrology, Venus rules the heart. In Gemini, she turns our heart into a dandelion puff, drifting on the breeze. The Gemini heart demands both connection and detachment. Gemini is just as elusive as he is gregarious. The twins stay shrouded, heart protected.
The karmic purpose behind incarnation as a Gemini is to find peace within the mind. Those born with Venus in Gemini can be very tricky. One moment these types are incredibly charming and affable – someone you can trust, someone who laughs at your jokes and invites you readily into their home – and the next moment they are enigmatic to the point of being impenetrable, withdrawn, completely vacant. Gemini’s greatest liability is to himself. I say this because, as undoubtedly frustrating such behavior is to witness, it incurs the most damage to the Gemini individual, tossed about by his own unpredictable winds day after day. How to please both twins at once – the introvert and extrovert, the artist and the warrior, the recluse and the clown – that is the question.
Gemini is the sign of duality, not equilibrium! Often Geminis seek relationships in which they feel either totally superior or totally inferior to the other person. The friend or partner is idolized, revered, elevated to superhuman status, and the Gemini individual (briefly) centers their entire life around this person. Or, they take someone under their wing and become that person’s “teacher,” proselytizing their own deep life philosophies, and thus making themselves someone else’s central figure or idol. Gemini can be extreme in this way. His social and romantic life fluctuate between dominating and being dominated. Gemini must learn to overcome whatever perpetuates this cycle of abandoning his soul to another, then feverishly reclaiming it, again and again.
Summer solstice on June 21! On June 23, Venus opposes Jupiter Retrograde in Sagittarius. This brings feelings of uneasiness. Some change in a relationship comes about, but this is not necessarily long-term. A time of transition, parting ways.
One day later on June 24, Venus squares Neptune. Neptune is in Pisces, the constellation she rules, and therefore operating in full force since 2011. Neptune/Pisces rule delusion, confusion and deception. When Venus, planet of interpersonal relations, forms a hard angle to Neptune, there may be confusion or deception in relationships. We may be taken advantage of; or we may try to “save” someone who is unable to receive our help. This might extend to our financial life, as Venus rules money and domestic concerns as well. Do not ignore red flags in the social or financial realm. Venus enters Cancer one day after the new moon solar eclipse!
While Venus is in Gemini, she will be obscured by the light of the sun. Nourish your brain with writing, long conversations and Gemini Yoga. If you were born with Venus in Gemini, this is your Venus Return! To find your personal Venus sign, click here.
