Venus enters Gemini where she'll remain for a very long time due to her retrograde that begins on May 13. Normally Venus only stays in a sign for approximately 28 days. When she's retrograde the time expands a great deal and she'll remain in Gemini through August 7.
During the Coronavirus the goddess of love, pleasure, relationships and values says we have lots to reassess regarding the sign of Gemini. We have to be more creative with communication and learn new ways to do that as well as new ways to teach and learn. So many will have to rely more on Zoom, FaceTime, Skype and so many other technological forms that will help recreate a source of income as well as stay connected to loved ones, friends and colleagues. Siblings, brothers and sisters of all types will become more important during this transit. On a national scale you can see this playing out so clearly with the Cuomo brothers becoming such a focal point during this crisis. Andrew Cuomo is the Governor of New York and Chris Cuomo is an anchor for CNN. Chris has also recently been diagnosed with Corona. The brothers are often seen together on TV in an interview style format, bantering back and forth. Their relationship is a reflection of what so many of us are going through in our personal life with friends, siblings and loved ones. We, as a society, project on to them all that we are experiencing. They mirror back to us of our own personal experience. It's like shooting the breeze with our buddies on the stoop of the apartment building in the local neighborhood. It's not about liking them or agreeing with their politics but they happen to be our connectors to the zeitgeist.
Venus in Gemini will force all of us while in close quarters with loved ones to learn to talk, communicate and listen in far more complex ways. Everyone will get on each others' nerves with movement being restricted so there will be far more nastiness, bitchiness and general bickering. Use the unpleasant side of this energy to become aware of what is wrong in order to be more conscious of how to help relationships grow and maneuver to a higher and better way of communicating. This is a great placement to pick up that book you've been meaning to read for the past 2 years. Read more, write more, listen to others with greater depth and awareness. Take on-line classes that decompress the mind from over analysis and over thinking.
Gossip will run rampant with Venus in Gemini. Behind closed doors, with a loved one, in a personal environment can be a fun and healthy way to gossip. But if this energy is taken into the public sector in the form of spreading false information and rumors without double checking facts then the consequences of that kind of gossip, double talk, rumor and miscommunication will be far more detrimental, harmful and deadly. This is an airborne virus and Gemini is an air sign, so there will be continued consciousness and paranoia about spreading this virus through talking and breathing in close proximity to others. We will cover up our nose, mouth with masks to block the breathing process from spreading the virus through the air.
Playing word games and crossword puzzles are a great Gemini pastime. Family get togethers around a Monopoly board or any other such bonding game time is a wonderful manifestation of this energy while trapped in quarantine.
As Venus prepares for her retrograde in May, so many people must find new ways to stimulate their income. There's a deeper thought process to recalibrate, reassess and reevaluate financial goals.
Be creative with Venus. Indulge and rediscover how to find pleasure and intimacy in hard times. We need Venus and her beauty, balance and harmony in our lives right now more than ever.
