A cosmic shake-up arrives on June 22, as Venus leaves grounded Taurus and enters intellectual Gemini. In astrology, Venus is the planet of love, affection, and beauty. As Venus changes signs in the sky, it influences the way we give and receive love. As an air sign, Gemini cares a lot about communication and the exchange of information. When Venus is in Gemini, we're craving mental expansion and stimulation, whether it's learning from a partner or sharing our own knowledge with a lover. Read on to learn more about this buzzy astrological time.
What Does It Mean When Venus Is in Gemini?
Venus in Gemini reminds us of the power of communication within our relationships. Verbal compliments and intellectual compatibility go a long way and are undoubtedly a great way of strengthening our bonds with others. If you're single and looking for love, don't be surprised if your calendars start to fill up!
Laura Chung, reiki master, astrologer, and host of the podcast "Awaken and Align," tells POPSUGAR that Venus in Gemini is the perfect time for socialization and meeting new people. "Venus is prompting us to communicate what we want, to network, and to go after what we desire in life," Chung says. "If Venus was the flower in Taurus, she is the bee in Gemini."
Gemini energy can be indecisive, as there is a part of Gemini that is always seeking new experiences and stimulation. "Venus in Gemini is a master when it comes to the art of flirting," astrologer Valerie Mesa tells POPSUGAR. "Rest assured, our notifications will be buzzing and our one-on-one conversations will be mentally stimulating. But we're more likely to chase options for the sake of having variety, as opposed to settling down with just one energy."
Venus in Gemini: What to Expect in 2022
Venus will remain in Gemini until July 17. During Venus's stay in Gemini, the planet of love will make a few harmonious connections. On June 28, our love lives receive a cosmic boost and blessing as Venus forms a sweet conversation with Jupiter in Aries. Jupiter is the planet of luck, opportunity, and expansion. This supportive energy offers a great opportunity to express how you're feeling or maybe even tell someone you're in love with them.
The following month, on July 12, Venus in Gemini mingles with Saturn in Aquarius. In astrology, Saturn is the planet of commitment, dedication, and responsibility. You can use this helpful energy to define the relationship or address topics with your S.O. that need constructive solutions.
The next day we're in for a hint of confusion, though, as Venus will form a tense angle with Neptune in Pisces on July 13. Venus and Neptune both represent love and romance. When they meet in a harmonious way, it amplifies our loving nature and the quality of our relationships. When they meet up in a tense conversation, it's easy to miss red flags and idealize a person or situation. The best way to move forward is to be reflective, rather than reactive.
That being said, Venus in Gemini does have a lot in store for each zodiac sign. Read on to gain deeper insight on how Venus in Gemini will affect your birth chart and sign.
