Transiting Venus in Gemini
Having satisfied her physical appetites while in Taurus, a sign she calls home, it was time for Venus to visit Gemini and indulge her mind. Although one might think that the earthy side of Venus would be homesick for the Bull’s earthy delights and passionate nights, the airy side of this pleasure-loving planet feels very much at ease in Gemini’s breezy bungalow.
As the sign that presides over the mind, Gemini is curious about everything and everyone, which is why whenever Venus is here, her social life is a top priority. With a natural ability to work the room, Venus easily charms everyone with her witty repartee, fascinating bits of trivia and playful questions that are often misinterpreted as romantic interest. In fact, by the time the party is over, there’s usually a string of broken hearts behind her.
It’s true that Venus in Gemini is flirtatious, and at times even fickle, but it’s not because she’s cold or uncaring. Venus is all about relationships, but while the earthy side of her is ready to settle down, her airy side is hard to pin down because her heart follows her head.
That’s right. When Venus is in Gemini, romantic attraction begins in her mind and then works it way down her body. Those who excel in conversation will capture her attention, provided of course they don’t want to talk about their (or her) feelings. If your idea of expressing affection involves talking about feelings, save yourself some heartache and find another goddess.
Besides relationships, Venus is also about money, and in Gemini she views it as a means to acquire knowledge, enjoy social exchanges and participate in activities that stimulate her mind. Even when her chips are low, she’ll always manage to come up with enough money to buy a ticket for a fascinating film, a must-read book or have coffee with a friend.
For Venus in Gemini, life doesn’t need to be fancy or expensive or the finest quality.
It just has to be interesting.
Everything else is gravy.
