Venus in Gemini: The Two Faces of Love
Love planet Venus has departed earthy, loyal Taurus for playful, commitment-shy Gemini. Those white picket fences we fantasized about now feel like stakes being driven through our freedom-loving hearts. The consistency we craved now makes us restless. We want action, adventure, stimulating conversation! We don’t want a partner who agrees with us on everything; we want to be challenged.
Gemini is the Twins, and it expresses the dual nature of things. With good comes bad, with light comes darkness. During Venus in Gemini, we’ll deal with the uncomfortable side of partnership, which is our individuality. As much as we’d fancy a fairy tale where we live happily ever after, real life isn’t so seamless. During Venus in Gemini, we need to deal with our separate identities along with our coupledom. Both matter!
Gemini rules information and digital data. It’s a good time to beware what you post on the Internet. Case in point: the scandal involving New York Rep. Anthony Weiner, whose sexting gaffe led to a picture of his underwear-clad crotch spreading through Twitter. Weiner is a Virgo; both Virgo and Gemini are ruled by Mercury the messenger. No matter what your sign (but especially if you’re one of those), think before you send anything in electronic format or reveal racy personal details in your online-dating ad.
What should you focus on during Venus in Gemini? Communication. Compromise. Negotiating a relationship that works for both of you, honoring your quirks and separate interests too.
