Venus in Gemini Dates: May 8 to June 2 of 2021.
Venus, the planet of love, relationships, and money enters the mutable, air sign of Gemini on Saturday, May 8 at 7:02 p.m. Pacific Time.
For the last three and a half weeks, Venus enjoyed an indulgent and sensual stay in her home sign of Taurus. Here, Venus preferred a slow and steady pace, really taking in all the luxury life has to offer. Now that Venus has entered the quick-witted and shapeshifting, Mercury-ruled sign of Gemini, things start to speed up. The mutable energy of Gemini brings a much-needed breath of fresh air. Taurus’ fixed quality can tend to prefer keeping things the same, while Gemini loves variety.

Venus in Gemini Meaning
Gemini represents the way we communicate, the information we intake, and our local community. Venus is the way we relate to one another, what we’re attracted to, and what we value. Venus’ transits can point towards what we gravitate towards in matters of love, beauty, and finances. Since Gemini is a Mercury-ruled sign, communication in relationships is highlighted in all ways first and foremost.
Under this transit, we may find ourselves hungry to connect with other like-minded folks to exchange knowledge of all kinds. Having the sudden urge to present a TED talk on every new thing that interests you, or go down a YouTube tutorial rabbit hole, is another way for this energy to express itself. We can expect to be turned on by intellectually stimulating ideas or have a conversation so riveting, you can feel the sexual tension. Our relationships are strengthened when good, strong communication is prioritized.
If that’s not your strong suit, now is a great time to practice opening your throat chakra and using your voice in your most cherished partnerships. Be open to learning new communication styles that efficiently and lovingly express your inner needs and desires.
Venus in Gemini can bring heightened awareness around our deeper truths and our message. Since the North Node is currently in Gemini, our collective destiny is pointing us towards Mercurial themes. Mercury is associated with the Egyptian deity Thoth, the god of magic and writing. It is through our words, our beliefs, and our thoughts that we create our reality. On some level, we are all magicians who can speak things into existence. Meditate on the impact you are making on the collective with your voice. Give meaning to what you create!
