This is an air sign and the Goddess feels much lighter in it. Gemini is about making new contacts, about curiosity, about playing with duality, with the opposite inside of us, and connecting with as many people as possible. Gemini has a real fascination for people and becomes instantly interested in anybody they haven’t met before. Gemini’s lightness of being is welcome, especially after a period of deep emotional confrontations or disenchantment in a relationship.
Opening up to a variety of people is what Venus in Gemini can do for us.
Gemini’s interest in people stems from an inner need for self-knowledge, which this sign believes will achieve by connecting, observing and getting to know other people. Comparing, discarding, accepting, learning what they are not.
Venus in Gemini connects us with the world, and it teaches us not to judge, simply enjoy diversity. With Mercury, Gemini’s ruler, in its retrograde motion, since April 17th, it’ll be fun to see how we go about it. Mercury retrograde alters the way we connect. By slowing down our normal ways of communication we are forced to find other ways.
Since I moved to a new flat, just for April 15th, when Mercury was stationing retrograde, my TV have been disconnected, my cell phone does not have good coverage, in half of the new place, which means i cannot make a call from my bedroom, for example, and my internet connection is slower. So, I have been going out more, talking to people in the new neighborhood, connecting in a way I hadn’t done for a long time. I have made an effort to meet with friends i enjoy a good conversation with.
So, on the one hand Mercury has jeopardized my communication, but in other sense it has reconnected me in a different way.
So, with Venus in Gemini we may enjoy longer conversation over a glass of wine, reconnection with people we haven’t seen for a while, find ourselves making an effort in making those connections and feeling the urge to do so.
Bringing into our conscience the need to publicize what our business is all about, in order to make some more money. Creating our web page, engaging in more internet social net working, all of this is possible as the Goddess of Love, Beauty and Money, come into the sign of communication and mental curiosity. Joining new dating services in the Net is also a possibility, opening doors to connect.
If you are an actor, or a writer, or a radio host or a salesman, this passage of Venus through Gemini, will enhance your creativity greatly.
As the Full Moon in Scorpio is forming just as the same time that the Saturn-Uranus opposition becomes exact for the last time in the Pisces-Virgo angle, we may have long deep conversations with ourselves, about what we have been going through in the past 2 years, since the end of 2008, when this opposition first became exact.
Jupiter is moving through Pisces very rapidly and will come to contact with Uranus for the first time since February 1997, when they met in Aquarius. This time they will meet at 0º Aries on June 7th-8th, for the first time in this cycle of conjunctions, to then meet again at 29º of Pisces in September 2010, and then at 27º of Pisces in January 2011. Think what was happening back in 1997 in your life, and how you experienced this cosmic event then. Especially see in what area of your birth chart this two planets come together, this time.
Risk taking is one of the manifestations of this combination, with an intense need to embark in something new, out of the ordinary (Uranus), but we must not forget that Saturn will be opposing this Conjunction and Pluto squaring it. In July, Mars will come to Libra, reinforcing the opposition of Saturn, so whatever we feel like doing, we must look at all the possibilities and consequences before jumping. It’s one of those times, when you can’t be mindless.
Jump by all means, but check all your options carefully. Needless to say, this combination have never happened in our lives, so, we must all be conscious of the Present. Since this is an important Present, from the point of view of Astrology.
According to Stephen Arroyo, Jupiter-Uranus combination is connected with originality and creativity, and political and social change. Rebellion and a strong urge for personal freedom.
At the mundane level go to: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1997 to see what was going on in 1997, when this conjunction last took place.
Aquarius and Libra will get a great brake with Venus in Gemini, and the mutable signs (Gemini-Virgo-Sag and Pisces) will get a chance to connect with theirs most inner values and re-view their relationships and perhaps enjoy them in a different way.
The New Moon in Scorpio on the 28th will contact the position of Mercury retrograde at 8º of Taurus, so the time have come to say what is in your heart, keeping your mouth shut, might not work anymore. Great opportunity to realize how your mind works.
By the way, Tennis is a Gemini sport, it should be fun to watch what the girls will be wearing, during this transit of Venus!!!!!
