Venus in Gemini

 

One I prepared much earlier…

Last Sunday I found myself in the rare position of having absolutely nowhere that I had to be and nothing that I had to do. Sure, there were places and things that I should have been at or should have done, but I decided instead to take a “whatever” attitude and get over the guilt. Instead, I got the ironing up to date and watched Absolutely Fabulous and Sex and the City.

I have never quite been able to decide whether Carrie in Sex and the City is Gemini or Libra. She is definitely the Air element in the show – and her love of designer clothes certainly points to Libra – but her absolute passion for words, flirtatious nature, and her eclectic taste certainly points more to Gemini. Venus in Gemini likes to put together things that don’t match, but somehow work… actually, that’s Aquarius too – the things that don’t match bit…

Anyway, there is this episode of SATC in Season 4 where Carrie is sleeping with Ray, a jazz musician with whom she is having mind-blowing sex but hoping to turn it into a relationship. Ray is totally scatty, spontaneous, and young – possible the quintessential Gemini?  Carrie, though, feels the mental connection is missing between them and she ends the relationship when it becomes obvious that Ray has “stopped playing her and moved onto another instrument”. Walking home from what she calls ADD (Another Dating Disaster) she ponders why they call it mind-blowing sex – perhaps that level of physical connection obliterates the chance of an intellectual one? “Great sex is great, but I still like the song of a melody I can sing to”, she laments.

When Venus is in Gemini the mental connection will always be more important than the physical or the emotional or the practical. As Carrie says- “What kind of a relationship could I have with a guy I couldn’t even talk to?”  Venus in Aries (where actions speak louder than words) could manage this – possibly even revel in it – but Venus for Gemini it would be a deal-breaker.

Venus is where we find pleasure, what we like doing and who we like doing it with. When she is in the Air signs (such as Gemini), she is social, communicative, butterfly light, and immersed in the mental –ideas, theories, logic, connections – rather than the emotional realm of the water signs, the physical of the earth signs, or the movement of the fire signs. When Venus is in Gemini words will make you feel good – settling down to read a book is therapeutic, but meeting your friends to talk about it is even more so.

Gemini is mutable and needs variety and flexibility. If you have Venus in Gemini, you will like to browse, like to flirt and like to chat… a lot… with lots of different people about lots of different things. You may spend more energy on the idea or concept of a relationship than on love itself.

Venus in Gemini also has a reputation of being fickle. Beating the boredom is why Venus in Gemini may be able to juggle more than one partner or potential partner quite effectively. The inconstancy is also due to her search for the theoretical ideal relationship. When what looks good on paper proves quickly to not be so great in reality Venus in Gemini will move on. When your idea of a perfect relationship can change quicker than the weather changes in Melbourne, the mind (and the heart) can wander just as quickly. And before you write to me, that doesn’t mean Venus in Gemini is more likely to cheat than any other sign – just that their attention span can be, well, fluid.

A man with Venus in Gemini will be looking for a partner that has these Gemini qualities- youthful energy, busy-ness, flexibility and highly social. He wants someone with a quick wit that he can talk to and engage with on a mental as well as a physical level.

So, how do you keep Venus in Gemini coming back for more? The trick is to keep things interesting, keep them guessing, keep them curious and keep the communication flowing. Gemini.

Don’t have Venus in Gemini, but think this sounds like you? If you’re a Gemini woman, or have Venus in conjunction or easy aspect to Mercury, you’ll have some or many of these traits. If, however, you have Saturn aspecting your Gemini Venus, you may have difficulty in expressing them…just saying…

Doing it for yourself…

We all have Gemini somewhere in our chart, and it’s this part of life that Venus will be bestowing her presence on. It’s this part of life that you’ll find pleasure in. It’s this area of life that you might want to follow your curiosity, try something new, meet new people.

In my chart, Venus in Gemini is transiting the 4th  house. I’m on the search for the perfect piece of art to hang behind our lounge. I have my eye on a photograph, but can’t quite decide whether I want something more coastal. The search, though, means a bit more exploration.

If you don’t have your chart, read this post on how to get one.

If you don’t know what the houses mean, check out series 1 of the Toolbox or this post.

If you don’t have any idea about your birth time, or can’t be faffed working it out, you can follow the solar guide. Obviously, if you know where Gemini is in your chart, go straight to that house:

  • If your Sun or Ascendant is in Gemini, Venus will be transiting your 1st house.
  • If your Sun or Ascendant is in Cancer, Venus will be transiting your 12th house.
  • If your Sun or Ascendant is in Leo, Venus will be transiting your 11th house.
  • If your Sun or Ascendant is in Virgo, Venus will be transiting your 10th house.
  • If your Sun or Ascendant is in Libra, Venus will be transiting your 9th house.
  • If your Sun or Ascendant is in Scorpio, Venus will be transiting your 8th house.
  • If your Sun of Ascendant is in Sagittarius, Venus will be transiting your 7th house.
  • If your Sun or Ascendant is in Capricorn, Venus will be transiting your 6th house.
  • If your Sun or Ascendant is in Aquarius, Venus will be transiting your 5th house.
  • If your Sun or Ascendant is in Pisces, Venus will be transiting your 4th house.
  • If your Sun or Ascendant is in Aries, Venus will be transiting your 3rd house.
  • If your Sun or Ascendant is in Taurus, Venus will be transiting your 2nd house.
