Venus will be in witty Gemini on April 11th, 2023.
As the planet of love, Venus is full of affection, romance, and highly sensual. And as a Mutable Air sign, Gemini is the sign of the mind — not necessarily the heart! — and governs communication and engagement.
How this affects you and your love life may depend on where Gemini is in your birth chart, as well as your own particular signs and relationship to this thoughtful sign. Let’s dig a little deeper!
Venus in Gemini in the Birth Chart
Starting with the obvious: if you were born with Venus in Gemini in your natal chart, this transit has a more profound effect! Because Venus in Gemini is literally like coming home for you, you’re going to feel this position very innately in your relationships.
But what are the implications of having this witty placement?
As a partner with Venus in Gemini, you likely need lots of mental stimulation with the people you’re closest to. For you, love is best expressed through verbal communication and meaningful, intellectual discussion. In other words…you’re big on words!
However, as a natural big thinker, you may be let down often because the real world doesn’t match what you think it should. Venus in Gemini can be just as challenging as it is stimulating, as the Mutable energy is suited for being on the move more than it is settling down immediately.
Overall, these complex issues can come up more prominently for everyone with Venus in Gemini, especially if it’s in your birth chart.
