When Venus is in Gemini, she puts on her little black dress and gets ready to party with the best of them. This transit is fun loving, carefree, lighthearted and extremely flirtatious. This is a time for making memories, meeting new friends, and talking until dawn. This is especially true as Venus moves out of her retrograde period and turns direct.
During a Venus in Gemini transit, dating is a real adventure - whether online or offline social distancing. If you’re single during this period, you’ll enjoy the unexpected nature of a blind date, but you’re just as likely to find a friendship suddenly turning to romance. Gemini’s energies can be quite fickle, however, so don’t necessarily expect a new attraction to last for long. Venus in Gemini needs variety and spontaneity, so as fast as a new love arrives, it could fade to make way for the next one.
Existing relationships may get a boost from the Venus in Gemini transit, as this bright and breezy energy helps jaded partners to rediscover all the things about each other that make them laugh – in a good way. However, some struggling relationships may come to an end during this transit, as Gemini energy will not hang around for long once it’s clear that love is lost. Unbridled flirting – even when it’s innocent enough – can also lead to a great deal of jealousy now.
Gemini is an Air zodiac sign, so when Venus transits Gemini there’s an intellectual edge to love too. It’s a wonderful time for falling in love with someone’s mind, or for finding a new partner through a shared interest or hobby. This airy vibe does tend to hold emotions at arm’s length, however, so during this astrological transit, sincerity cannot be guaranteed. Anything too sad or difficult is likely to be glossed over or ignored.
The planet Venus also speaks to how we handle our finances, our values and our resources. When Venus transits Gemini, there’s an easy-come, easy-go attitude toward money, with an emphasis on the go. This is not an ideal time to try to save or budget, although cleverness from the Gemini spirit can make some surprisingly astute judgements around now. With this transit, we tend to value things that spark our curiosity – the new and the novel is much loved when Venus is in Gemini, as is gossip and scandal and anything which gets us talking.
Each zodiac sign will find that Venus in Gemini has a slightly different message, according to where exactly Venus falls in each individual birth chart. However, during this transit, all signs will seek opportunities for human connection, socializing and fun.
Venus in Gemini for an Aries (Aries dates: March 20 – April 19)
Venus in Gemini brings you a real way with words, Aries. Think of Gemini’s wit and charm and super-charge it with your own Arian dynamism – you can see why this can be a very persuasive transit for you! It’s also super busy, so don’t expect a lot of free time. Make sure you get plenty of sleep, as insomnia can strike during this transit – and you can’t party if you’re exhausted.
Venus in Gemini for a Taurus (Taurus dates: April 20 – May 20)
For you, Taurus, this Venus transit activates your financial zone. It’s time to get creative with the ways you source income. Could you earn some extra money from writing or tutoring, perhaps? It’s a good time to splash out on a special gift for your partner, but watch out for an uncharacteristic impulsive streak which could lead to overspending.
Venus in Gemini for a Gemini (Gemini dates: May 21 – June 20)
When Venus transits your own sign, your whole Gemini being gets ready to party. This is an intensely sociable time for you and friendship is actually more important than love during this astrological transit. If you’re single, focus on meeting new people who share your interests. Love may or may not follow, but at least you’ll have expanded your tribe – something that’s dear to your heart.
Venus in Gemini for a Cancer (Cancer dates: June 21 – July 21)
This Venus transit activates the most spiritual zone of your chart, but these energies are not terribly introspective. Instead, it’s a good time to join a spiritual group of some kind – socialize with others who share your views and beliefs or from whom you can learn. Spending time alone is a mixed blessing during this transit, so watch out for twinges of loneliness.
Venus in Gemini for a Leo (Leo dates: July 22 – August 21)
For you, Leo, it’s the social element of this Venus transit which feels most authentic. It’s the ideal time to let your exuberant nature out to play and if you’re entertaining, you can create an event which will live long in everyone’s memory. Dating is fun and you’ll want to make a good first impression, but avoid trying to win someone over through lavish spending – it’s not your money they’re interested in.
Venus in Gemini for a Virgo (Virgo dates: August 22 – September 21)
During this transit, Venus showcases your career talents, Virgo. This is a very good time to emphasize your communication skills and your incredible attention to detail. Apply for a promotion or seek a new job where your talents will be more appreciated. However, beware of superficiality with this transit. Don’t be tempted by a position just because of how much it pays.
Venus in Gemini for a Libra (Libra dates: September 22 – October 22)
This Venus transit activates your travel zone, Libra – what a perfect time for a vacation! This astrological area also deals with ethics and morality though, so don’t be surprised if you have to make a difficult choice involving a matter of principle. You talk the talk very well indeed, but are you truly prepared to walk the walk?
Venus in Gemini for a Scorpio (Scorpio dates: October 23 – November 21)
Although Gemini energy is normally quite emotionally detached and easy-going, this Venus transit activates your jealousy zone, Scorpio, and that can cause real issues in your love life. Try to see the difference between harmless flirting and a real threat to your partnership. If you can’t get on the same page with that, perhaps you’re not was well-matched as you thought.
Venus in Gemini for a Sagittarius (Sagittarius dates: November 22 – December 20)
This Venus transit activates your love zone and should ensure a very happy few weeks for your closest relationship – or perhaps an interesting new encounter if you’re currently single! This is not happy-ever-after land, however, so be prepared for the fleeting nature of a potential relationship. Live for the moment, Sagittarius, and don’t think about it too hard. All things in good time.
Venus in Gemini for a Capricorn (Capricorn dates: December 21 – January 18)
This Venus transit brings a boost to your physical energy and you may find that you don’t need as much sleep for a few weeks, Capricorn. This will in turn help you get more done in your day, so it should be a satisfying period, from work to your family life. Keep a careful eye on the details though, as the rush to get things started may mean some issues are overlooked.
Venus in Gemini for an Aquarius (Aquarius dates: January 19 – February 17)
This transit brings a boost to your creativity, Aquarius, and also to your love life. If you’re single, this is the perfect time for dating, especially if you can keep an open mind about the type of person you want to meet. It’s a great time for writing, poetry, music, art, film and theater – enjoy anything that sparks your imagination.
Venus in Gemini for a Pisces (Pisces dates: February 18 – March 19)
This Venus transit is about beautifying your home, Pisces, but it’s also about boosting your sense of self-esteem and security. You can do this by socializing more, even if you don’t feel like it. You’ll discover how much others value you, which should help you value yourself. An easier time with difficult family members is on the way, especially if you use humor to light the way.
