Venus Retrograde in Gemini:

Space to Breathe

In Astrology, we all know Venus as the planet of love, beauty, abundance and harmony. Whichever astrological sign Venus is transiting shows us how these energies will be expressed during that period of time. But what happens when Venus turns retrograde?

Venus goes retrograde approximately every 18 months, for about six weeks at a time. During this retrograde period, the planet appears – as viewed from earth – to be moving backwards across the sky. This is nothing but an optical illusion, but the apparent backwards motion is astrologically significant, and astrologers interpret it as symbolic of Venus’ affects in our lives, according to our natal chart, during this period.

This year, Venus is turning retrograde in the 3rd House of Gemini. In Astrology, Venus retrograde cycles repeat in the same zodiac sign every eight years, so if you can recall what you were doing during the spring of 2012, astrologers say you might get some insight into how this retrograde period is likely to pan out. Jupiter is also turning retrograde at the same time; Jupiter is in retrograde every 12 months.

During Venus retrograde, the past tends to become important, particularly as it regards love, values and money. Since this retrograde is taking place in Gemini, there are strong links to communication of some kind too. Don’t be surprised if during this Venus retrograde a lover from your past gets back in touch, or an old debt resurfaces and needs paying.

In Astrology, Venus is the planet of abundance, but during the retrograde motion, this abundance can seem difficult to hold onto. This is not a time for major spending projects; try to save instead, or at the very least, take expert financial advice before spending anything out of the ordinary. Expect to find your values challenged too, especially if you haven’t always walked the walk. In love, Gemini energy is very flirtatious and quite fickle, so during Venus retrograde in Gemini, this flirtatiousness can cause issues with jealousy or insecurity. However harmless you think your behavior may be, bear in mind that your partner – and others – may see it very differently. Reputations can also be at stake during the Venus retrograde period, especially when social media gets into the mix.

At its best, however, this retrograde period allows us to stand back a little from past relationships, regardless of our zodiac sign. For new relationships, it probably signifies the end of the honeymoon period, but that’s a good thing, as it allows for a deeper and more sustainable love to emerge. For more established love relationships, try to slow things down a little. Instead of socializing all the time, find time just for the two of you, and enjoy cozy nights in for a while.

What does Venus in Gemini mean?

In Astrology, how you experience Venus retrograde depends on the exact makeup of your own astrological birth chart, but overall, all zodiac signs during this period will be seeking some calm and some quiet.

Aries Zodiac Sign (Aries Dates: March 20 – April 19) During Venus Retrograde in Gemini

Life has been exceptionally busy recently for those under the 1st house zodiac sign; this Venus retrograde period is your chance to step back from the hustle and bustle and to create a calmer period in your life with some self-care. Cut down on the number of errands you’re running and try to allow the world to turn without you for a while.

Taurus Zodiac Sign (Taurus Dates: 20 April to 20 May) During Venus Retrograde in Gemini

This Venus retrograde period reminds you that money is not the be all and end all. You may experience some financial loss and hurt self-esteem at this time, but you will manage. Use the time to budget more wisely and to become more aware of your own financial responsibilities and limitations so you don't self-sabotage.

Gemini Zodiac Sign (Gemini Dates: 21 May to 20 June) During Venus Retrograde in Gemini

When Venus turns retrograde in your own sign, you may feel less outgoing and less flirtatious than normal. Within a relationship, it could be time for some down time together – spend more time with one another and much less with other people.

Cancer Zodiac Sign (Cancer Dates: 21 June to 21 July) During Venus Retrograde in Gemini

With the retrograde in your privacy zone, this is a clear signal that you need some quiet time. Don’t be afraid to decline social invitations or to cut down on the amount of time you spend with friends or colleagues, just for a while. Quiet meditation and self-love will soothe your mind.

Leo Zodiac Sign (Leo Dates: 22 July to 22 August) During Venus Retrograde in Gemini

Venus is retrograde in your social zone, so this is a hint that you’re spending too much time partying and not enough time developing deeper, meaningful friendships. Instead of quantity, focus on quality of interactions, spending more time with just one or two friends.

Virgo Zodiac Sign (Virgo Dates: 23 August to 22 September) During Venus Retrograde in Gemini

Venus retrogrades in your ambitions and career zone, suggesting a difficult few weeks in terms of self-worth and getting along with colleagues. You may struggle to get the respect or recognition you deserve, but it’s important to remember that this is just a phase. You’ll get through it.

Libra Zodiac Sign (Libra Dates: 23 September to 22 October) During Venus Retrograde in Gemini

During this retrograde, the focus is on travel and wisdom. Instead of expecting other people or situations to have answers for you, try going within to find what you need. Exotic destinations aren’t what will give your life meaning – listen to your own heart instead.

Scorpio Zodiac Sign (Scorpio Dates: 23 October to 21 November) During Venus Retrograde in Gemini

Retrograde Venus is in the transformation zone of your natal chart, suggesting that the power of love can truly be healing at this time. Focus on forgiveness, both of yourself and of others, and ensure that you are totally sincere in how you interact with others. By opening your heart, you’re freeing yourself.

Sagittarius Zodiac Sign (Sagittarius Dates: 22 November to 20 December) During Venus Retrograde in Gemini

Venus retrograde in your love zone is tricky to handle – during this period, focus carefully on what your partner truly wants and needs from you, rather than assuming that you already know. The emphasis is on listening and responding, not on making selfish demands.

Capricorn Zodiac Sign (Capricorn Dates: 21 December to 19 January) During Venus Retrograde in Gemini

This retrograde period activates your mental health zone, encouraging you to take time out or to step back from a situation you’re finding too stressful. Reach out for help from trusted allies and don’t be afraid to simply walk away from something or someone who does not value you.

Aquarius Zodiac Sign (Aquarius Dates: 20January to 17 February) During Venus Retrograde in Gemini

With Retrograde Venus in your dating zone, this is not an ideal time for forming new relationships. This retrograde also clouds your judgement when it comes to taking risks, so be very sure that you know what you’re getting into before you try something new, especially in your love life.

Pisces Zodiac Sign (Pisces Dates: 18 February to 19 March) During Venus Retrograde in Gemini

This retrograde period highlights your family zone and speaks of the need for forgiveness and calm where there has been discord. Use this opportunity to heal and to set up healthier family habits for the future – everyone concerned can learn from this energy.

    I can't describe how excited I was when I found out about this course with my favourite Astrologer Kelli Fox. It was absolutely FASCINATING! I highly recommend it to anyone, especially like me if you love astrology more as a hobby and just want to suck in as much information as you can. I loved all the extra pages of information you can go through that are linked up with Kelli's website when needing a greater understanding. I already can't wait to go back through the course again and finding out how much more I can learn. I hope there will be more courses in future with Kelli. She is the best!Cached

    Kelli is so "on point". I've come to trust her instincts as I do my own. The only issue I have is occasionally on the site itself, some of the links don't seem to connect...like the birth/natal chart...whether through email or the search engine links, or even the ones here on the site. As far as the readings, reports, horoscopes, etc. go....A+ and then some!!!! Love you Kelli!Cached

    Kelli Fox makes Astrology fun and educational. Her honest excitement about sharing her knowledge comes thru with every reading. From the daily and weekly horoscopes thru to the monthly reports she delivers a way of navigating thru even the most troublesome aspects. And the weekly Zoom meetings with her email subscribers midweek, seriously help to plot a course through the upcoming astrological currents.Cached

    Awesome Amazing Beautiful Fantastic! When I found Kelli Fox it was what I needed to know and read about that I am as a Libra. The positive words of Wisdom that was confirmed. I live in the mountains of Blue Ridge Georgia and God really helped me locate this beautiful home - one level with a very long driveway. I read the testimonial of a man called William K and i was not out looking at the stars which I should being alone with the deer turkeys and bears I am cautious about the night time. However this man had a person born November 14th that is my fathers birthday and so I thought i need to write to you. Thank you so much Kelli Fox for being there for me. I cried when I read all that your web site told me about myself. My home is way up in the mountains and it is amazingly God given wisdom that made me buy it for peace and tranquility. Now I am wondering if its time to go to a place closer to the town since it is a two lane road to get to town. I love the drive to town however when ive got to get to the airport it's 2 hours and then I'm late since I start to hesitate (as a Libra) and then I'm late by an hour at times! Thank you. I love all of your website. The time now 4.16 am early morning. I'm always an early riser! Thank you again Kelli Fox. Many blessings to you.Cached

    I live in Georgia I’ve attended yesterday’s zoom about Mars Retrograde, I opened the compass on my phone went outside around 8:45 -9:00 pm eastern time zone, walked down the driveway, it’s a beautiful driveway with and amazing view of the sky, So I walked down my driveway glancing, at my compass, got to the end of the driveway, I was already walking west, Look again at my compass, looked up and bam, there it was. Blinking I thought it was a plane at first, the sky was clear so I was able to see all the other stars very well, but Mars from where its located was by itself, there wasn’t any other stars around it, it had a bit reddish glow to it that’s how I knew it was Mars, one of the best days of my life, you want to know something cool, my son is a Scorpio Nov 14/2005 words can’t express the feeling I had knowing that I was looking at my sons ruler, I am a Taurus May 19/1986 special night for me.Cached

    Hi there! I am thoroughly enjoying receiving your horoscopes and informative information on how the planets are affecting our everyday lives. To say this year has been so unpredictable is an understatement, but when you explain how the planets are ‘behaving’, it makes much more sense to me. I have known about the spirit world from being a small child and am in fact a registered healer working in my local church helping and teaching as many people as I can. I feel very much the different energies in people who are unknown to me and can sum them up, usually with uncanny accuracy. A gift from God that I cherish and will never abuse.... if I do, I know it will be taken away from me. Thank you again for your insights and please keep them coming. Sending lots of hugs 🤗🤗🤗🤗 to you and yours. 💜💞💜Cached
