Venus moves into Gemini
May 9 – June 2, 2021
Venus in Gemini is a social butterfly – dazzling, but flighty. She thrives on social connections, loves parties and gatherings, and craves variety. Chit-chat is her middle name, and sometimes she can be a terrible gossip. If you want to spread the news through the grapevine, tell Venus in Gemini a secret.
She doesn’t maliciously spread rumours. But she simply can’t keep her mouth shut. News of any kind just burns on her tongue. The urge to share her knowledge just can’t be suppressed.
In our society, this is often seen as a negative trait and considered ‘indiscreet’. But in terms of social evolution, it has ancient roots that served an important function. In prehistoric times, social groups tended to be small – consisting of about 25 to 50 people. But as we settled and our villages grew into cities, it was no longer possible to know everyone personally. How would we know whether a stranger could be trusted? The answer lies in social networking. Strangers are introduced through friends and friends of friends.
Thus, ‘data mining’, as we would call it today, served to establish trust – or sent a warning signal, as the case may be. Venus in Gemini always has her fingers on the pulse and spread the news via the grapevine, long before printing was invented.
The other striking facet of Venus in Gemini individuals is their extraordinary flexibility. They are not only social butterflies but also social chameleons! No matter the setting, they have an uncanny ability to magically fit into almost any social context, adapting their speech and behaviour accordingly. This can be confusing if you encounter them in different social roles. You might wonder if this is the same person? But this adaptability makes Venus in Gemini great actors: Jennifer Lopez, Uma Thurman, Al Pacino, Tom Hanks and many more have this Venus placement.
She is quick-witted, eloquent, and often very funny, too. It’s not surprising that she has such social appeal. In politics, however, she can be dangerous. She may be charming and flattering, all the while spreading lies, and being two-faced, promising one thing and doing quite the opposite.
Venus is a fast-moving planet, which means that the effects of this transit will be felt like a passing flurry of energy and social interaction. Only those, who experience it as a direct transit to planets in their personal horoscopes are likely to feel a noticeable effect.
