Venus in Gemini (April - August 2020)
Venus danced into Gemini yesterday and will remain there for four months (3 April - 6 August 2020). This visit is extended because, in May, Venus will retrace her steps (retrograde) but for now let’s focus on Venus’s April charms.
Venus in Gemini is chatty, curious, flirty and fun-loving. We’re talking Margot Robbie and Kristen Bell sparkle and shine here (both have natal Venus in Gemini).
In Gemini, Venus reflects and answers to Mercury, Gemini’s ruling planet.
Mercury is presently in Pisces and in detriment which means Mercury’s influence is weakened in this watery sign. Mercury’s tone will be subdued but soothing and the overall mood dreamy and poetic.
Venus in response will delight at this time in poetic and romantic exchanges. This is the time to write old-fashioned letters, read and write sonnets or quote Emily Dickinson and Rupi Kaur. This is also an excellent month to take your art online. Play your music, share your creations, read your stories.
If you haven’t been adding to your personal library and organized your bookshelf yet now is the time to do so (Gemini is the sign associated with books).
Gemini is also associated with lung and respiratory illnesses. Venus here is a welcome sign and because she’s in a positive aspect with Chiron this month there’s the promise of healing and recovery (although please note you would have to take a look at your own natal chart for planetary afflictions).
Venus especially will soothe nerves and help us all feel a lot calmer.
For added benefits drink Venus-ruled Linden blossom and yarrow tea.
When Mercury moves into Aries next week on the 11th, expect declarations of amour, and an increase in friendly exchanges. This will be an excellent time to start that online blog or business or to write that book.
Please read journal prompt and meditation for your sun sign and rising sign if you know it.
