Venus in Gemini

The person with Venus in Gemini has a light touch and a lively sparkle. These people love company and are very friendly in an unaffected way. They have a particular ease of social expression; and their natural curiosity makes them very quick to tune in to others. This makes it easy for them to get on with all kinds of people; and they usually have a wide circle of friends.

Venus in Gemini likes to draw people out, and will ask many questions. Generally witty and lively, these people are fun to be with; and others usually find them attractive. Their pleasure in responding to this attention can make them incorrigible flirts. Because they enjoy the company of others so much, they are often reluctant to be tied down to one person, and are very skilled at being evasive. They tend to side-step difficult issues, so that it can be quite hard to persuade them to stay still long enough to sort anything out. They tend to feel more comfortable in a fairly light-hearted relationship, and often have several on the go at any one time - like a butterfly flitting from flower to flower.

The Gemini Venus is attracted to people who are communicative - those who have ideas and enjoy talking about them. This person likes people who are full of surprises, quickly becoming bored with someone who is too predictable. They need variety and movement in their relationships, and cannot bear things to become static and fixed.

In love, Venus in Gemini wants everything in words. Close communication is what love is all about for these people, so they need constant feedback from their partner, and they will feel very insecure and rejected if they do not get it. In return, they will show their love in a very attentive, communicative way. If you are loved by Venus in Gemini, you will hear all about it through constant phone calls, cards and letters. Love letters are second nature to the Venus in Gemini person.

For Venus in Gemini, friendship will be a vital component of love. They are really looking for a companion - someone they enjoy talking to and with whom they can share their ideas and interests. Although people with Venus in Gemini may appear fickle, they generally hate to lose someone with whom they have a close connection, and put a lot of energy into maintaining the links of friendship with those they love.

Venus in Gemini: By placing an obsessive value on quick wit in social situations, you may unknowingly withhold from others your special ability for adding lightness and open communication. When you neglect listening to others' ideas, you might feel a distinct lack of confidence in communicating with them at all. Indulging in flightiness in social relationships may result in a feeling of lack of worth in yourself or others.

When you use your talent for communication to manipulate, to deceive, or to create a superficial excitement with glib wit, you may experience a lack of your own sense of value. In trying to look good to others, you might get caught up in superficiality. This type of communication leads to feelings of insecurity and to being at the mercy of how others see you.

When you are willing to share the Gemini natural gift of light-heartedness, you cheer others. The ability to listen to other points of view strengthens your capacity to contribute an appropriate optimistic insight to any social situation. Your talent for stimulating, elevating conversation can result in your experiencing a deep sense of your social self-worth.

When you see the larger picture of others' viewpoints, you can communicate in such a way that their burdens are lightened. This leads to feeling a reaction of zest and satisfaction. You establish a firm sense of self-worth and confidence in social situations by expressing cheerfulness and lightness to uplift others.

Venus in Gemini: Venus is associated with artistic creations, and Gemini rules communication. Therefore, if you have artistic talent you are likely to express it through some form of writing. You love language and the written word, and want to share your thoughts with others. Or, since Gemini rules the hands, you might use your hands in some creative manner.

Communication is of utmost importance in your relationships. If you can't talk to your partner, no amount of sexual attraction will keep you interested for long. Your lovers must also be your friends. You want a partner with whom you can share ideas, who will teach you new things and expose you to new experiences. Intelligence might be first on your list of desirable qualities in a partner; and you probably find that you learn a great deal from your lovers.

When you are with your partner, you never stop talking; and when you're apart, you write long love letters or telephone frequently just to hear his / her voice. You enjoy talking and / or writing about love - your own, or love in general. This is the position of the romance novelist, or the person who carries on a love affair mainly through letters. You aren't very good about keeping secrets, and are inclined to gossip about others' relationships. You also reveal more about your own love life than anyone ever wanted to know. What good is a love affair if you can't tell everyone about it?

Your romantic feelings aren't very deep or intense; and others may consider you rather superficial and detached. You bounce back quickly and easily from disappointments in love, eager to move on to new relationships and experiences. What you lack in emotional depth you make up for in variety.

Gemini is a dualistic sign, and you often may have more than one love interest at a time. In fact, you are happier when you are involved with two (or more) lovers simultaneously, since each of them satisfies different needs and desires in you. You firmly believe that you can't get everything you want from one person, but maybe with two, three or more you'll be able to find total fulfillment. You are perfectly capable of loving several people at the same time, and don't understand why your partners can't accept the situation, since you never mean to hurt anyone.

Also, you are afraid of missing out on something if you commit yourself to one mate. The expression 'the grass is greener on the other side of the fence' certainly applies to you. You never stop scanning the horizon for prospective partners, and can be an incorrigible flirt. Unless you also have several planets in signs such as Taurus, Cancer, Scorpio or Capricorn, you probably have trouble remaining faithful to one person for long. You can't stand possessiveness; and if your partner tries to 'clip your wings' you might lie, sneak around or employ other tactics to maintain your freedom. To you, having many different lovers is a form of freedom of expression, a right guaranteed to you in the first amendment to the Constitution.

Venus in Gemini: Venus in the sign Gemini indicates people who like variety in their romantic and social lives. The desire for varied experience, coupled with curiosity about people, makes them disinclined to settle down to one permanent romantic relationship. Like Venus in Aquarius, this position makes them want to be friends with everyone; but they are nevertheless capable of sustained devotion. Because of their wit and conversational ability, they are attracted to people with agile minds and keen intellects. This is a Venus that needs to be given adequate freedom.

People with this Venus position spend much time travelling in pursuit of pleasure and social activity. Literary activities - especially poetry - and jokes are favored artistic expressions, usually including some form of play on words.

As with other Air signs, there is a tendency to dislike coarse behavior. The natives have a pleasing manner, and maintain generally good relations with brothers, sisters, and neighbors. If Venus is afflicted in this sign, there is inconsistency and fickleness in romance. Values concerning love, marriage and romance may be superficial.

Venus in Gemini: Here is the light, airy, charming, superficial Venus if she does not have fixed signs to balance her forces. Great charm, wit, and expressiveness. Understands passion but does not feel it too strongly. Emotions are sifted through the mind instead of through the feelings. An entertaining companion but not one to be taken too seriously. Needs to learn constancy. Hard for them to decide on one love when there are so many from which to choose. Often two important loves in the life, though not always at the same time. Very friendly, and makes a delightful companion if you do not try to pin the butterfly down. Strong relationship with kinsfolk.

Venus in Gemini: Keywords: creative (particularly in writing), non-committal, enjoying multiple romances, loving variety.

When placed in Mercury-ruled Gemini, a mutable Air sign, Venus equates love with friendship, deriving endless pleasure and fulfillment from the intellectual stimulation of people, novel ideas, the media and travel. Since Hermes / Mercury was an asexual God in Greek / Roman mythology, and the only planet not assigned a gender in Hindu (Vedic) astrology, this Venus does not crave sexual power and expression as much as the regeneration of ideas and feedback. Self-worth is measured in terms of not sexual or romantic reciprocation but affability and the facility for conducting constant exchanges of information, ideas and opinions with a diversity of people. In fact, the requirements for partnership are based less on romantic love and physical passion and more on friendship, communication and mobility.

It is important for Venus in Gemini people to choose mates who respect their convictions and, most important, their need for a variety of activities outside the home. The comfort that Venus in Gemini people seek in a multitude of friendships, cultural activities, educational courses, travelling, etc., does not necessarily stem from an unhappy home life, and should not be interpreted as a desire to be unfaithful. Because these individuals do an incredible amount of networking, often serving as go-betweens and, if need be, mediators, it is indeed likely that they may be attracted to people outside their relationships, if only as a result of the variety of individuals with whom their paths cross. Unfounded jealousy, however, may be the force that drives these freedom-loving people to contemplating an affair, since Venus in Air signs is by nature detached, and sex is often regarded as a means of communication rather than an expression of love.

Like Plato's Heavenly Urania, honored for her cerebral qualities, individuals with Venus in Gemini place a higher value on the intellect than on physical desire; due to their own emotional detachment, they often do not take commitment as seriously as they should. Due to this placement's lack of physical passion and genuine restlessness, astrological texts have described this position as aloof, fickle, promiscuous, uncommitted and insensitive to the needs of others. Since Venus in Mercury-ruled Gemini, the sign of restlessness and perpetual youth, tends to be somewhat detached towards its loved ones, these people may be unable to settle into a monogamous relationship until later in life, after they have 'sown their wild oats'.

If Venus is well aspected, they possess a wealth of cleverness, wit and spontaneity of expression. Due to Gemini's impeccable timing and remarkable ability to replicate sounds, the creative influence of Venus lends itself to outstanding improvisational musicians and performers, ventriloquists, mimics and comedians / comic actors. Because Gemini rules the lungs and the ability to communicate, a dominant Venus prefigures eloquent speaking voices and the power of persuasion. These people are filled with a plethora of artistic ideas and, rather than direct their passion towards romantic involvements, their fervor is often apparent in the media arts such as film-making, photography, writing, advertising and public relations.

If, on the other hand, Venus is afflicted, these people are insecure about their opinions; and rather than look to others for stimulation they validate themselves by mimicking and / or stealing original ideas and presenting them as their own. Additionally, it is difficult for them to commit to a lasting relationship, due to an inability to follow the dictates of their hearts. As they mature, they will be less likely to seek validation from others around them and more apt to become good partners who are creative, stimulating and encouraging.

Venus in Gemini: With this placement, the individual is learning the lessons of relationships as his divided feelings seek union with compatible ideas, people, and the current movement of society as it unfolds its meaning through culture, refinement and human decency. He loves to read, understand, and sift through the myriad of opinions and ideas which are the very essence of his interest in life. Yet, he has much to learn about human nature if he is to realize the full potential of love.

The Yod to this Venus placement is formed by the inconjuncts from Scorpio and Capricorn, and it is from these two signs that the individual realizes how the fulfillment of love with manifest.

From Scorpio, the person learns to drink deep from the well of knowledge. He begins to realize the existence of a world of hidden feelings which add richness and fullness to his ideas, helping to transform and unfold his consciousness. He learns to seek beyond the trivia of idle conversation or casual relationships. Instead, he discovers the harmonious scope of ideas and the cosmic meaning of social interaction with others, so that his natural affinity for thoughtfulness, kindness and consideration takes on a deepening quality. This unlocks the barriers in his consciousness and puts him in touch with the kind of truth which transcends his tendency to be flighty.

From Capricorn he must learn to seek the inherent wisdom that creates a sense of foresight and vision, enabling him to oversee life's momentary attractions from the scope of a larger ever-lasting context. The substance of the wisdom of the ages, the knowing of the elders and the serene understanding of how man unfolds through time hold very important lessons for the Venus in Gemini individual. As he realizes the perspective of Capricorn, he begins to see the lessons that life is teaching him. This adds a meaningful anchor to his reality, giving him the substance and the stability that helps to resolve his dualistic feelings.

Castor and Pollux, the twins of Gemini, symbolize mortality and immortality. The Venus in Gemini individual experiences both; for he feels life as an isolated instant in time through the mortal part of him that he knows must eventually die, while also seeing the continuous stream of thoughts and ideas which transcend life itself, putting him in touch with the idea of man's immortality.

Capricorn symbolizes the reality of man in matter. It teaches the lessons of evolution as the individual works his way through karma to the ultimate state of dignity in which he eventually understands the 'father' principle (both in his personal life and as a sociological and religious guide point for man). This is the reason why so many people with Venus in Gemini experience difficulties with their father. The limitation of any authority figure fulfills the reality of the mortal essence of the sign, while at the same time giving the appearance of being a block to the need for immortality.

Scorpio symbolizes life after death, the regeneration of human consciousness as an ongoing part of man's immortal soul, and the endings from which new beginnings are born. It balances the limitations of Capricorn, allowing many to feel his immortal relationships with himself, the society which supports his ideas, and the universe which is the source of love in all he thinks and feels.

Many with this placement experience more than one marriage, many interests and simultaneous feelings of love for things which appear to contradict each other. Yet, when the deep lasting meaning of Scorpio and Capricorn becomes clear, the individual's search for human understanding begins to make sense. He learns about his love for finite moments contained within the limits (Capricorn) of human culture, amidst the infinity of man's search to understand his place in the universe (Scorpio).

In this way, he realizes the divine content of love. His ideas, his relationships and his natural affinity for words and language begin to symbolize the unraveling of the great mystery of life; for the true essence of his Gift of Love is to communicate, in the light and airy ways that he himself and his fellow mortals can understand, the depth and profoundness of wisdom that comes through the mortal part of his nature.

Venus in Gemini: Keynote: Affections are changeable but charmingly expressed. Symbol: Merrymakers at a dance switch partners.

Venus in Gemini refines the mind, making it imaginative and poetical. There is a fey quality to the temperament, so that beneath a show of gregariousness an indefinable elusiveness defies the intimacy it seems to invite. Sometimes it is easier for such people to write or speak exquisitely about experiences than to feel them intensely. They have aesthetic gifts, and are often talented in music, art, and literature. Their innate creativity may also be expressed through crafts and hobbies requiring manual dexterity.

The Venusian Geminian discerns beauty and virtue even in the most unpromising situations. He can stand back and observe the foibles of fallible human beings, mimicking their idiosyncrasies until his audience simultaneously laughs and weeps for the frailties of the world. His feet may not quite touch the earth, but he is sufficiently ingenious so that he may sing for his supper and end up staying for breakfast and lunch. He is naturally friendly, and knows how to exploit his charms in order to attract patrons and benefactors.

A Venus-Gemini person may be fickle and evasive; but generally no harm is meant by his flirtations. He does not want to be pinned down to one type of work or one set of ideas, because he knows that while his kind of wit may entertain, amuse, or uplift, it is ephemeral. He is better fitted to be a butterfly than a beast of burden. The same sensitivity that accounts for his artistic proclivities imparts an inner delicacy which makes him reluctant to employ the measures required for the rough, tough clamber up the ladder of worldly success.

Since Earth and Air do not blend easily, the sensuous side of Venus is not entirely in harmony with Gemini's breezy intellectuality. The person with this combination enjoys the fun and excitement of romance, but fears its attendant obligations. In his social life, he seeks out clever, witty companions who keep him amused without expecting serious commitments. Although friendly, he shrinks from becoming entangled in the personal problems of others. As a thinker, he can become so titillated by ideas that he would rather not be distracted by the unruly emotions of love.

The sentiments of the Venusian Geminian are easily aroused - but they have a disconcerting way of changing without warning. He is capable of becoming amorously involved with more than one person at a time. When it comes to choosing a marriage partner, he may be faced with the necessity of deciding between two prospects and, as a result, settle on neither but look about for a third. His erotic cravings exist largely in the mind, and may never really be satisfied, since any flesh and blood person is bound to fall short of the ideal. An individual with this position often marries more than once.

The greatest drawback of this placement is that a person may not be aware of the true nature of his desires. The resulting irresolution can lead to an unintentional wounding of the feelings of those who place their faith in him, and to his consequent withdrawal from responsibilities. He can understand passion even when he does not feel it personally; and, being aware of the complications it creates, he would rather keep the game of love moving merrily and play it as it suits his fancy.

Venus in Gemini: For you, happiness is learning and being on the move. You want to see it all, do it all. As a result, your needs may be different at different times and your affections can flit from person to person accordingly. What you need and value most are sincerity and good communication. Any relationship based on these things stands a good chance of surviving.

Venus in Gemini: As a pre-existing pattern of inner relatedness, the Venus in Gemini person hears an inner call for self-knowledge. This manifests in a deep inner restlessness, fuelled by a constant inner dialogue within themselves. This inner dialogue poses a variety of questions leading to experiences of all kinds. The essence of these questions is defined by the inner question 'Who am I?' which leads also to 'Who are you?'

Venus in Gemini people related to and understand themselves inwardly through a reactive process. This means that these individuals pose a variety of thought possibilities leading to potential experiences, and then react to these thought possibilities in such a way that the reaction itself produces self-awareness and self-knowledge. This is a perpetual process with the Venus in Gemini person, because Gemini as an archetype is mutable. The mutable archetype is one of unrestricted growth and perpetual expansion. Yet because we live in a time / space reality that is defined and understood through polarity, the process of expansion must, at some point, contract. Thus, Venus in Gemini people learn about themselves through cycles of contraction which are induced as a reaction to excessive expansion. In the cycle of expansion, Venus in Gemini people are inwardly considering a diversity of thoughts in their desire to understand themselves, and life in general. These thoughts are induced by exposure to life itself: 'What does this mean? What does that mean? By doing this, what will I discover? If I read this, what will I learn? If I talk to this person, or take that class, what will I discover?' and so on. By initiating experiences of kind, by bringing into themselves all kinds of information from all kinds of sources, they react inwardly to this relatively indiscriminate intake of information. 'Do I really believe this? What does this really mean to me? How can I apply that?' becomes a perpetual inner dialogue that is restrictive in nature as a reaction to their desire for perpetual growth and expansion.

The rhythm between expansion and contraction is ever-shifting, yet always ongoing at an underlying level. Even though the cycles of inner / outer expansion and contraction are not predictable, there is always an underlying reactive dialogue that occurs within the Venus in Gemini person. Thus, these people may enter into a cycle in which they are seeking out all kinds of experiences, taking all kinds of classes, reading all kinds of books, seeing all kinds of movies, etc.. This will then induce a cycle of contraction because they will reach the limit of such expansion. They simply become exhausted and fragmented because of too much intake of stimulus of this kind. When the cycle of contraction is induced in this way, the Venus in Gemini person necessarily assimilates the meaning of the different experiences he / she has created relative to his / her desire for knowledge. So, on the one hand, there is this reactive process occurring within these people even during the cycle of expansion; and, on the other hand, they cyclically withdraw from the cycle of expansion because they simply become overwhelmed and exhausted. By withdrawing from external stimuli, they are able to assimilate the matters to which they have been exposing themselves.

Because of their deep inner restlessness and intense inner curiosity to experience as much of themselves and life as possible, the Venus in Gemini people relate to other people in a very open, friendly way. They are naturally attracted to anyone who symbolizes new experiences or knowledge. Because they are open to all the possibilities of life, they are open to, and accepting of, the differences in all people. They are color-blind, so to speak. They are able to relate to people in a very free way that is relatively devoid of prejudice. Because of their own inner curiosity as to the possibilities of life itself, the Venus in Gemini people are very adept in being able to carry on conversations with other people. They ask good questions, and are able to communicate quite well. They are quite skilled at drawing other people out of themselves. They are versatile, quick, and quite witty.

Conversely, when these individuals are in a contraction cycle, they can be very reactive in their conversations with other people. The reactive process manifests as not completing their own sentences, or allowing another to complete their own sentences. When this occurs, the mutual reaction does not allow for either one to actually hear the other. Needing to contract and stabilize this creates a resistance to any more intake of information. This reactive process is really a manifestation of the survival instinct intrinsic to the archetype of Venus via its natural rulership of Taurus, and this the second house.

The Venus in Gemini people understand their feelings through their mental body or process. Let us understand that feelings are different from emotions. Feelings are an immediate reaction to an existing stimulus, whereas emotions are a reaction to our feelings. Because Gemini is an Air archetype, people who have Venus in this sign relate to themselves inwardly through the nature of what they are thinking at any given moment. This process will induce a feeling reaction to the specific nature of what those thoughts are. In this way, they come to understand the nature of their feelings. On a projected basis, these individuals understand what and how another is feeling by approaching another through his / her intellect. In other words, they must engage someone's intellect or mental processes first in order to understand how that person is feeling about anything.

Sexually, the Venus in Gemini person values sexual openness in the sense of mentally entertaining all kinds of sexual possibilities. Again, they are naturally curious, and they do not want to preclude any possibility out of hand. They will (at least mentally) consider almost any sexual possibility. Some with Venus in Gemini will have a dual sexual nature that leads to bisexuality. Thus, they can be quite sexually versatile, playful, and 'sporting' because of the implied adventure of being open to all sexual possibilities. There is also a particular attraction to oral forms of sexuality, and a strong mental orientation to the sexual act that induces a detachment from it. This is necessary to Venus in Gemini because it is through this kind of de facto voyeurism that they learn about themselves as a sexual being, and learn about others as sexual beings. On the other hand, this kind of mental detachment can create sexual frustration because it is as if they are forever observing instead of being totally engaged at a purely emotional and physical level. It is as if they cannot get out of their heads, so to speak.

In evolutionary terms, the Venus in Gemini person desires to expand his / her consciousness in order to learn how to related to him- / herself in a diversity of ways through the multiplicity of experience. The process of learning occurs through reactions to initiated experiences of an internal and external nature - thought and counter-thought. For evolution to proceed, the Venus in Gemini person must embrace its polarity: Sagittarius. In essence, this means to continue the desire for expansion, to expand the inner and outer horizons of awareness, but in such a way that indiscriminate curiosity is replaced by conscious intention: 'I want to learn this for this reason; I want to do that for this purpose; I am interested in learning this and will focus on it until I learn it thoroughly before learning something else; I am thinking about that because of this reason' and so on. In addition, the Venus in Gemini person must progressively evolve away from externally acquired knowledge into the dynamic that the knowledge they are seeking is inwardly realized through the development of the intuition. They need to transfer the center of gravity in their consciousness from the left to right brain. In this way, these individuals will learn to relate to themselves in a responsive way, versus a reactive way. They will create a deep inner center within themselves that is constant, versus an inner center that becomes cyclically fragmented. They will learn to listen to themselves in a different way, and thus likewise listen to other people. In effect, they will learn to hear more deeply what is behind or within the actual spoken words and the thoughts that are occurring within their own consciousness. In this way, they will learn to communicate differently as they speak to the essence of what is being said, versus reacting to the specific nature of the words only.

Venus in Gemini: You look for lively relationships with plenty of activity and communication. When you are in love, you make light and witty company, even if your Sun is in a more serious sign like Taurus or Cancer. You look for a partner who can hold a real conversation. Scratch that—you want somebody who can talk about multiple subjects in a short period of time. When you're in love, you can be a real tease! You flirt, joke, and cajole—and you turn others on with the promise that love will be fun with you.

I'd like to take this opportunity to address the reputation Gemini has for being somewhat dishonest. Evasive, yes, but dishonest is off the mark. Venusian Geminis are not in touch with their feelings enough to give a concrete answer when they are cornered. Or perhaps you can say that they are so mentally stimulated that they are more aware than most of all of the possible answers or reasons. So, if you are asked by your partner, "Why have you been avoiding me?", for example, your answer may seem to have been pulled out of a hat. The truth is, you don't always know the answer right away, but you are so communicative that a response comes out of you anyhow. Neither are you the type to excuse yourself to soul-search, then get back to your lover with a meaningful answer. You're always quick to reply. This quality is often misinterpreted as insincerity.

You are not the most sentimental of lovers, although you do have a wonderful way with words. You value exchanging and sharing ideas in a partnership, and a good conversation makes powerful foreplay for you! Your urge for freedom and variety in love, coupled with a tendency to skirt intense topics, can lead some partners to think that you're as substantial as cotton candy. Although some Venus in Gemini people go through lovers like Kleenex, just to avoid the frightening thought of having to commit oneself to only one partner, most are very capable of loyalty in the long-term. They simply want their relationships to be interesting. Commitment, to you, doesn't mean things have to be dull.

How Venus in Gemini Relates to a Partner with Venus in Aries: Love for both of you is equated with fun. You and your partner want to be active in your relationship, and neither of you is happy if your partnership enters a boring zone. You should be pleased with the amount of independence granted to you from each other. Together, your enthusiasm is infectious. You are more intellectual than your partner, finding good conversations stimulating. In fact, you are in the most loving of moods when you engage in a satisfying verbal exchange with your lover. Your partner does enjoy having fun, but lengthy conversations are not always the ticket—in fact, if the talk drags on too long, your lover finds it mind-numbing. The key here will be to stay active with each other, being careful not to ride too high on the enthusiastic energy you two generate when together, at the expense of enjoying each other in quiet ways once in a while. Your partner can easily become impatient with your indecisiveness. As well, your partner finds it disconcerting when your conversations stray from the most favorite topic—him/her! Probably the biggest problem in your partnership is a sense of instability. You react to each other very impulsively, and neither of you is given to setting goals for your partnership. Living in the moment certainly infuses a sense of playfulness and fun into your relationship that is enviable, but your relationship may not always feel dependable. In fact, your powerful attraction to each other often runs hot and cold. Harnessing the energy and passion of your combined energies will not be easy, but if you can slow down once in a while and enjoy each other, this relationship can be both invigorating and rich.

How Venus in Gemini Relates to a Partner with Venus in Taurus: Your Venus signs are side-by-side, meaning you both approach love relationships very differently. This combination can generate much intrigue and fascination. In fact, side-by-side signs tend to turn up more frequently in love relationships than those that are traditionally considered compatible. Perhaps it's because we tend to be attracted to challenges. If your differences are not accepted and appreciated by each other, however, over time they can cause many disagreements! Your partner is a steady person in love. He/she is very sensual but quite practical as well, taking commitment quite seriously. You tend to live in the moment when it comes to love, and are an expert at infusing relationships with playfulness and a lively spirit. Although you find each other intriguing, the problems start when you recognize that your values are at odds. You value verbal exchanges, while your partner values stability and security. You show your love by playfulness, teasing, and interest. Your partner, on the other hand, is less concerned about variety and fun than he/she is with having a partnership that can be depended upon. A touch means more than words to your partner. Your constancy and physical presence does as well. You might complain that your partner takes what you say seriously, and wants to hold you to it. Your moods and wants change at a moment's notice, and you don't like being pinned down. When your partner is in need of regeneration, he/she tends to turn to physical and natural pleasures, often in solitude. When you are distressed or out of whack, you want to be able to talk it through with your partner. You enjoy new experiences and environments, while your partner is not as quick to embrace change. This is a partnership that has much potential if both of you are willing to learn from each other, mainly because each of you expresses qualities that the other lacks. If either or both of you are stuck in your ways or self-righteous, this will be a rocky partnership! However, when you are down or unsure, you can find great strength in your rock-solid partner; and your partner can certainly enjoy your wit and social ease—you are wonderful company.

How Venus in Gemini Relates to a Partner who also has Venus in Gemini: Because both of you have similar needs in relationships, your pairing highlights both the strengths and weaknesses of the Venusian Gemini position! You will be pleased with your partner's willingness to talk, have fun, and ability to liven up a rainy day. Together you can enjoy some wonderful cerebral moments as well as lighter entertainment. Your relationship is less likely than most to get clouded over with possessiveness or jealousies, although it can certainly run hot and cold at times! Both of you get turned on quickly—and turned off just as rapidly. If you're not on the same cycle, which is bound to happen from time to time, there can be quite a few stormy moments! For this reason, this pairing is probably more suitable for a shorter affair than a long-term commitment, unless there are stronger connections (some boosts from Saturn, for example) between your charts. Nevertheless, the relationship can be very lively and interesting. Both of you are insatiably curious, and your interests can change quickly. Many partners have difficulty understanding this trait (they can easily find it threatening), but your partner should, at least in theory, identify with you on this level.

How Venus in Gemini Relates to a Partner with Venus in Cancer: You and your partner have Venus signs that are side-by-side. In astrology, side-by-side signs have very little in common. This generates plenty of interest and fascination between the both of you. You approach love in markedly different ways, and your partner mirrors many of the traits you lack, and vice versa. The attraction is strong between you. Your partner has a uniquely nurturing approach to love and partnership. His/her memory with regards to loved ones is outstanding, and extremely flattering! Your partner cherishes you, showering you with his/her concern and caring gestures. Your style in love is more cerebral than your partner's. Your partner is fascinated with your often cheerful disposition, your flexibility, and your intelligent charm. Over time, your very different approaches to love can surface as difficulties, with the bottom line a clash of values. You are flirtatious with your partner, and your teasing is actually a true show of love. Until your partner recognizes this, it can be difficult for him/her to feel nurtured and cared for. Your lover is sensitive in matters of the heart, although he/she doesn't always want to show it. More than likely, your partner will play along with your lighthearted games, but may ultimately long for more warmth. You believe that any problem can be solved by talking it through. Your partner will certainly try to work through problems with you, but, in his/her heart, believes in and values a more emotional bond—a bond that would not only be difficult to verbalize, but that might even be cheapened if it is defined with words. Your partner shows love through gestures and commitment, and may leave you wanting for fun and excitement. On the positive side, you will be able to lean on your lover for emotional support and value his/her ability to make you feel safe. This is important because you can go through some very insecure and uncertain moments in your life. Your partner will appreciate your flexibility more than anything, and reward you with a commitment that is difficult to break. Try to pay more attention to tenderness in your exchanges with your lover, as this can only strengthen the bond between you.

How Venus in Gemini Relates to a Partner with Venus in Leo: The first thing you will notice about each other is that you share a common sense of fun in love. Both of you are playful lovers—some might even say childlike! Your love of variety, however, may leave your partner feeling a little threatened, simply because your partner desires to be the center of your attention! When you are in love, you enjoy talking, and your lover will appreciate the easy flow of communication between you. Your partner's immense need for security in partnership may surface as what appears to be downright jealousy, especially since you don't appear (to the naked eye, at least) to be the most loyal or steadfast of partners. When your partner feels insecure or threatened, he/she is given to melodrama. Because this is not your nature in love, you don't fully understand this kind of behavior, and you might even find your partner's displays somewhat amusing and entertaining! As fun as your partner is at times, constancy is more important to him/her than it is to you. Your lover might interpret your need for variety and stimulation as superficial or flighty. Despite these differences, however, this pairing is an intriguing and (mostly) positive one. Particularly if your Venus forms a sextile to your partner's Venus, you will find much to like about each other, and this mutual appreciation can warm both of your hearts.

How Venus in Gemini Relates to a Partner with Venus in Virgo: Because your partner values intelligence and communication in a partner, there can be quite a bit of mental attraction between you and your Venus in Virgo partner. Both of you are somewhat restless and curious people. Although sharing ideas is important to both of you, you may be less discriminating than your partner in terms of who you communicate with—as well as what you talk about. Your partner comes alive in an established relationship. You, on the other hand, require a little more freedom and may often turn to other people in addition to your partner for mental stimulation. This is healthy for you, but it may be somewhat intimidating for your lover, as he/she prefers to be the most indispensable person in your life. You have a rather happy-go-lucky disposition in love, and you love to tease and joke. Your lover tends to be more sensitive in matters of the heart, and might take some of your cajoling a little too seriously for your liking. You thrive on variety, and you tire easily of a love relationship that becomes too predictable. Your partner is quite restless as well, but is at his/her best in an established, rather predictable, and safe relationship. Both of you are flexible people, although you can take this to a greater extreme than your partner and this can make him/her feel uncomfortable. If your Venus in Virgo lover begins to question your sincerity and constancy, remind your partner how much you appreciate your relationship. Thoughtfulness might make all the difference!

How Venus in Gemini Relates to a Partner with Venus in Libra: This is a lively combination in which communication doesn't just flow, it bounce and leaps. Together, you will enjoy some fabulous conversations. You will certainly fill your partner's need for communication, as he/she thrives on feedback. There can be considerable respect between you. You enjoy plenty of social and mental stimulation—the more variety, the better— and so does your Venusian Libra partner! However, your partner's focus is on the excitement of togetherness, while you are not so specific in your needs for stimuli. As both of you enjoy communicating in relationships, you could easily compete for "air time". Your partner may complain that you are not as romantic as he/she is, and that you are a bit too analytical and perhaps abrasive with your wit. You may wonder why your partner seems to need you to spend a lot of time together. Most of the time, however, you are both speaking the same language! Together, you may not be able to make decisions easily, and you may lack mutual, practical goals. Nevertheless, this relationship can contain markedly less of the jealousy that undermines many other pairings, and cooperating with each other is a piece of cake!

How Venus in Gemini Relates to a Partner with Venus in Scorpio: This has got to be one of the most challenging combinations! An odd couple? Absolutely. But remember that we often gravitate towards challenges, and we usually learn a great bit from people who are markedly different than ourselves. It seems that "like attracts like" on a spiritual level, but on the physical plane, opposites often attract! Initially, the attraction between you may be intense. Both of you are curious lovers (albeit in completely different ways!), and you can be entirely fascinated with one another. But the very differences that attracted you to each other in the first place can turn into serious "issues" as time goes on. Both of you are provocative in your own way. You are a tease, a flirt. This doesn't necessarily mean that you flirt with everyone, but you do infuse a lot of lighthearted fun into your relationship. Your partner's love nature is intense. He or she craves intimacy, and when intimacy is threatened, your partner can become very provocative in ways that are difficult to see for the untrained eye. The means by which your partner attempts to regain a sense of control will vary depending on the type of Venusian Scorpio he or she is. Your partner knows how to push your buttons, and can become quite skilled at doing so in subtle ways. Your partner wants your soul, not just your body! You have an entirely different view of partnership. You want it to be fun, while your partner will gladly sacrifice fun for intensity. Learning to blend these distinctly different styles and values can be challenging, but with success, very rewarding!

How Venus in Gemini Relates to a Partner with Venus in Sagittarius: Your Venus signs are in opposite signs of the zodiac, but you share some similarities. Both of you are lovers of freedom in your relationships, and neither of you will turn down the chance for a stimulating conversation. Although there isn't always a "meeting of minds" between you two, there definitely will be some passionate discussions. Both you and your partner are somewhat restless, neither lasting long in a relationship that is confining or stuffy. Your partner tends to be more passionate than you in terms of beliefs and visions, sometimes to the point of expecting his or her partner to adopt the same belief systems, but you share a common love of fun and humor in love. Unless there are strong supporting aspects in synastry, the relationship may be broken impulsively. Both of you benefit from a partner who grounds you and reminds you of the long term. You may not find these qualities in each other. Your partner values honesty from a lover, while you value mental exchanges, period. Restlessness in partnership is something you both share, and it's best that you try to channel that energy into shared activities, such as traveling, instead of finding holes in your relationship. Remembering that opposites often do attract, this relationship is certainly workable if neither of you clings to your ways self-righteously. Learning from each other, and trying to strike a balance, will pay off. Together, you can easily become inspired.

How Venus in Gemini Relates to a Partner with Venus in Capricorn: This is one of the more unusual pairings that can be fascinating and frustrating at the same time. You have a lighter attitude toward love and commitment than your partner, and you can certainly help infuse your relationship with humor, liveliness, and activity. Your partner is rather concerned about commitment, and often plans for the future. He/she is sensual and practical at the same time, perhaps a little shy or awkward when it comes to the first stages of love, but really quite dependable in the long haul. Your partner likes his or her solitude, and you like your space. If you can avoid feeling threatened by your partner's need for alone time, and simply take advantage of those moments to pursue some of your many and varied interests, this can work well. This partner is more able to handle your quips and teasing than others, although he or she might complain that your head is in the clouds. His or her feet are definitely on the ground, but your partner does not shy away from ambition. You might find your partner downright boring. This isn't to say your partner is boring, but you do favor a livelier, more active partner than him or her. Your lover might be inclined to think you are as substantial as cotton candy! It's all in perception, as well as your different values. This is not considered to be an easy pairing, as we are mixing Air with Earth and Mutability with Cardinality. Gemini and Capricorn have little in common. Nevertheless, many couples have such combinations, probably because we are often attracted to differences. Perhaps it's because we sense that the other person has what we lack, and vice versa!

How Venus in Gemini Relates to a Partner with Venus in Aquarius: This combination is definitely one of the easier pairings. Certainly, you stimulate each other, enjoy being together, and find plenty of common interests. Both of you love to talk, finding a partnership that is growth-oriented and mentally stimulating a plus. You will find that your partner, more than most people, understands your tendency to be a bit inconstant. Others might call it flightiness, but your partner appreciates your changeability. Your partner, however, is more stubborn than you are. Your moods change quickly, and while your partner can hardly be labeled predictable, he or she is not as flexible as you are. This can cause a few problems, although if love is strong between you, you will probably be the one to make adjustments when needed. Each of you understands that partners need a little space to grow on their own, and the minimal amount of possessiveness and jealousy in your partnership will be appreciated on both sides. Liveliness, cheerfulness, and plenty of activity characterizes your partnership. This is a creative combination, and while you work on keeping things fresh, your partner will help steady you. Mutual admiration is a rare quality, and it is more than likely that you have it.

How Venus in Gemini Relates to a Partner with Venus in Pisces: Different needs in romance and partnership can be a source of fascinated attraction, and can also cause plenty of conflicts! Your desire for communication is strong, and your partner, too, wants to connect with a partner. However, you put more value in mental stimulation and your partner values the power of understatement in romance. While you prefer everything to be defined, your partner has a hard time making definite statements when it comes to matters of the heart. Both of you are kind, live-and-let-live sorts, and this quality will certainly help the partnership. You also share a certain measure of inconsistency and changeability when it comes to love. The main difference here is your needs in love. Your partner relies on intuition, preferring to keep love on an emotional level. Cornering him or her for answers, definitions, or analyses of your partnership won't get you very far—perhaps only frustrated! Your energy leaves your partner unsettled at times, while his or her elusiveness can be difficult for you to understand. Your playfulness may, at times, unnerve your rather sensitive partner, although he or she is generally forgiving. What makes sense is to focus on the positive in your pairing—both of you are flexible, intelligent people who are capable of meeting each other's needs as long as love and tolerance are in place.

Venus in Gemini Woman: You’d make a great spy. You love intrigue. And collecting information. And wearing disguises. And meeting odd but interesting people who have some tidbit of information to offer me to add to your collection. You keep your life like a variety show, ever changing. You step lightly and keep flexible. Your versatility keeps me young and gives me charm. You can talk about anything and usually do. You’ve a good eye for catching all the fascinating detail and you don’t get heavy. Your perceptions are mostly mental and come in brilliant flashes of insight.

You're a social being and you’ll be found at occasions where you can circulate, like the air. Parties and openings, games and gatherings - you’ll be there stirring things up in your constant battle against boredom. Your interests are wide and varied, from baseball to politics, soap opera to grand opera, trivial pursuit to philosophy, fashion trends to gourmet cooking.

You don’t deny being a flirt. Why not? It’s only a game. And don’t pin you down. It kills your feelings. Find the way to your heart through your mind. You're looking for your ideal love, the man who will take you into the far realms of mind and feeling, where ordinary reality is left behind. And who will still have his feet on the ground. Being versatile is what it’s all about. And interesting. He has to be able to pique your interest continually and keep you on your mental toes. A good conversation will turn you on faster than good sex.

You're an idealist and things are always falling short of your ideal. Maybe that’s why you move around so much. It’s just so painful when you're disappointed, so you always keep one eye watching for the ideal man, no matter whom you're currently with. You hold with a light and sensitive touch and you need the same in return. Your man must be able to keep up with your ever-changing nature, laugh at your puns, appreciate your wit, and stay light. Light doesn’t mean simple. You like life’s complexities. They’re like a puzzle. And figuring things out keeps you youthful.

Venus in Gemini Woman: Women with this planetary position like to think of themselves as being intelligent, articulate, friendly and free-spirited, and want others to see them this way, too. You use your mental and verbal abilities to attract lovers, and consider a good mind to be the mark of femininity. You also value intelligence and well-developed communication skills in other women, and look for these qualities in your friends. You have lots of friends and acquaintances; and although they may be quite different in many ways, they are all intellectually stimulating, talkative, and hungry for knowledge.

Venus in Gemini Man: Most of all, you want mental stimulation. Without it, you die. But keep it light. Nothing heavy please. No dark and moody conversations- they're so depressing. Lots of variety is what you like, in all that you experience. Whatever's new and trendy fascinates you, and you enjoy change for change's sake. Change is life's blood to you, for without constant change and the stimulation it brings, you wither on the vine and your mental grapes go sour. This craving for variety extends to your social and romantic life, and you're insatiably curious about people. All people, even ones you just pass on the street or sit across from on a crowded bus or train. In fact, you're likely to strike up a conversation with a complete stranger just to satisfy your curiosity.

Romantically, you're a bit fickle, though you hate to admit it. It's hard for you to settle into a permanent relationship because there's always so much left to experience and you don't like to cut off your options. Whatever's witty, interesting, informative, or just plain different excites you and you want to be able to experience it all. You fear missing something. You go to the cultural events, where there's good repartee, take in the newest popular show or concert, whatever's different. Yesterday's newspaper is old news.

You get around. You travel in pursuit of pleasure. You play with words, play on words. You love humor and cleverness. Your tastes are versatile, too. You can go to a classical concert one night and watch "Wrestlemania" the next.

You're not naturally monogamous. Though you interact with those you love, they have to allow you your space or you get stifled. You're a mental claustrophobic. Whatever limits you mentally stultifies you.

You're an idealist at heart and you're looking for your one true love. She can discuss philosophy, play Trivial Pursuit, watch baseball, and cook a gourmet meal all at the same time. Her mind is agile and she's got a razor-sharp wit. She behaves like a lady and lets you fly. But you'll always fly home if she doesn't pin you down, appreciates your puns, and loves your changeability.

Venus in Gemini Man: Men with this placement find intelligent women especially attractive. You are not intimidated in the least by a partner who is smarter than you are. You enjoy a woman who can hold up her end of the conversation, and even teach you a few things. Most importantly, you want your lover to be your friend, someone with whom you can share ideas and good times.
