With your natal Venus in Gemini, the dual air sign will blend with the planet of affection, giving to it a lot of Mercurial characteristics such as higher speed of events connected to it. Venus is generally governing pleasure and what attracts us, attachment to material things and subconscious urges to claim and make something our possession. It rules what we appreciate and brings us comfort, and of course feelings that can be described under the category “love”. Gemini energy will make the native a multi-tasker in these life areas, while also make intelligence a necessary ingredient for them to get attracted to a person.
Gemini is the third sign of the zodiac, and has planet Mercury as its ruling celestial body. Gemini is also the natural ruler of the third house, which rules our communications, short travels, flow of information, siblings and neighbours. This will make Gemini Venus quite communicative, receiving a lot of pleasure through exchanging words. They cannot stand silent and shy people, as talking a lot is a huge turn-on for their love life.
In the sign of Gemini, Venus is in peregrine condition. Peregrine is a rather neutral condition, where a celestial body does not function neither very potently (as it does when in domicile or in exaltation), nor is very weak (as it does when in detriment or fall). Venus has no real problems when in Gemini, except from the fast pace it usually develops; which is also not a disadvantage. There is some lack of stability concerning the thing that the native feels affection for; they change frequently and the native can easily lose his interest. On the other hand, a benefit that comes with this placement is the ability to frequently open their horizons and discover new things that they love. Gemini’s energy can be quite beneficial if assisted by other planetary positions, and the functions of the planet mostly depend on aspects from other celestial bodies. Additional information about Venus’ potency in each sign can be read in the article about Venus’ Essential Dignities.
We should note that Venus needs around a month to move to a next sign, and is the second quickest moving planet, as it is located very near the Sun. Also, it cannot be more than two signs away from the sign where the natal Sun resides in. Once per year and a half, Venus has a period of retrograde motion, where it moves backwards for apparently 40 days in the natal chart. Venus is impersonated by the ancient Greek god Aphrodite, who was the goddess of love, pleasure and beauty. Also, she is strongly connected to procreation, and naturally represents the divine feminine as an archetype (together of course with the Moon as it is the one side of the Sun-Moon dual axis).
We could definitely say that people with their natal Venus in Gemini are sapiosexual, and this trait can even alter their affection preferences in many ways. As they are mostly attracted to a mind and the thoughts it creates, they will tend to pay less attention to the physical gender of a person. This trait does not necessarily imply other forms of sexuality; many of their affections can be platonic and will mostly satisfy their desire to have quality time through communication. Yet, for such people it can be slightly more common to be attracted to both genders, because they first see the mind and then the body. In addition, as Gemini is one of the dual signs, such individuals will frequently have parallel relations, or generally non-defined ones. We already mentioned about multi-tasking, and that is a pattern appearing also in their love-life. Venus in Gemini people are social butterflies, enjoying discovering new characters of people, and dislike being enslaved in stable relationships for long. Their emotional status can be rather erratic, and they tend to use too much logic in their relations. A Gemini Venus will not hesitate to dump their partner as soon as he feels that his sexual needs are not fulfilled, or when their communication starts running dry. Instead, they will easily move forward towards some other person that appears more interesting. Many times, this will even happen before the previous relation is over.
This placement is ideal for people that are involved in occupations involving communication, and any type of data transfer. They simply love the flow of ideas, and this trait can keep them excited in such jobs. They do not enjoy routine, and dealing with people makes each day at work a different experience, keeping them alert. Natal Venus in Gemini is particularly good for teachers and lecturers of all types, while also for salesmen. Alternatively, this natal position of Venus will make them attracted to people who do these professions, or generally to individuals who are Gemini or have strong Mercurial traits (even Virgoan).
When a native has his natal Venus in Gemini, he will love books, newspapers and all sorts of things that he can read. He may develop obsessive behaviours concerning some particular forms of writings, which he will use to quench his thirst of data. Also, Gemini Venus people love chit-chat and gossiping, and definitely blend well with similar people. Sexual messages, dirty talk, late night phone calls and even love letters are all products of Venus merging with Mercurial energy. The fact that the third house, Gemini’s realm, rules neighbours is furthermore empowering all forms of daily trivial communication with people of their surroundings, no matter if it is about the weather or gossip about other people. Needless to say that such individuals should be careful when they have difficult aspects to Venus in their natal charts, especially connected with malefic planets such as Mars, Saturn and Pluto. Their overindulgence in speaking may create enemies, reveal secrets that should stay clandestine or elsehow complicate their relations with others. As Venus is a planet connected with sexuality, this placement may make the native brag about their affairs and generally reveal too much information about his bedroom. In addition, they are very curious to learn what is happening in the others’ bedrooms. Of course, discretion is the best advice to be given, as such information should always be handled with respect in order not to create difficult situations; both to themselves and to other people.
As Venus is connected with wealth and money, its presence in Gemini can make the native become a hasty and impulsive buyer. He will especially spend money on books and other sources of information. Also, a big part of his expenses will be dedicated to short traveling, especially for weekends. In case that the native has a sibling, this placement’s attributes include spending money for (or together) with that sibling, as they are usually quite connected and with good relations. Yet, if we observe the overall traits of Gemini, there can be no stable patterns of spending money, as there are no stable patterns of needs about possessions for this sign. All purchases done are rather chaotic, and it is a rather frequent phenomenon for them to forget to pay a bill because in that moment they saw something new and interesting to buy.
Venus in Gemini people are rather turned off by jealousy, while also by any type of pressure that other people impose on them. They are free-spirited, and will usually put their own needs over the needs of others. Of course, this does not mean any harmful intentions; they just cannot be happy if their own needs are not satisfied. And for this, they need constant stimulation of their brain – which actually cannot happen easily when they dedicate themselves to one other individual. This is why they will always be in a flirty mood; not necessarily to find a new lover but mostly to expand their social circle and fool around. Indeed, their behavior can be sometimes childish – even when it comes to serious relations with people. Yet, what else can we expect from the sign of Gemini, whose ruler is Mercury, the “Puer Aeternus”, the eternal child? For Venus in Gemini individuals, humor and a good time is a lot more important than some deep and serious bonding, so neither expect something like that from them nor press them. Indeed, A Gemini Venus may commit to a stable relationship sometime in his life. Yet, this will probably happen at an older age, and only by their own initiative. Still, with a lot of previous lovers, they will remain in good friendship relationships. After all, Venus in Gemini is mostly interested in the other people’s minds, so even when sexuality fades away the good human relations may remain untouched. Another behavior that can commonly appear, is such a native not being able to understand why others get angry to him and his actions. Whenever he hurts people, he tends to do it without awareness, later feeling confused about possible negative reactions that he receives.
When a Gemini Venus is well aspected in a natal chart, the native can be very lucky in the life area that the sign of Gemini rules. We should not forget that Venus is considered to be the most benefic planet after Jupiter. It will bring unexpected pleasant events concerning the house it resides, and generally help things flow easily. On the contrary, bad aspects to Venus can bring quite a lot of problems mostly connected with overindulging in pleasures. Also, when the darker traits of Venus are awakened by difficult natal aspects, the Gemini Venus person may bring problematic communicative behaviors which will naturally hurt back through losses in order to balance out the natal chart. Insincerity, lies and manipulation can be some of the darker sides of this placement. Overindulgence for long is not tolerated by the karmic laws, so it is always wiser to exercise modesty.
