2022 Venus in Gemini is the cool breeze your love life needs

     Love is in the air– literally. Love planet Venus enters airy Gemini on June 22, where it will playfully glide until July 17, breathing fresh air into your love and professional relationships, as well as your finances. 

     That’s because Venus is the planet of love and pleasure, as well as money (crypto), self-worth, friendships and relating. And during this Venus in Gemini transit, those areas of your life – love relationships, friendships, money / investments, self-worth, pleasure – will be imbued with the best (and worst) qualities characteristic of the mutable air sign. 

      Whereas Venus in Taurus aimed to keep everyone and everything in your life chill, Venus in Gemini will do the opposite. After all, Gemini is the trickster of the zodiac. (Seriously, Loki ain’t got nothing on Gemini.) It’s true, though the Gemini is known as the sign of communication, activity and duality, the mutable air sign is also the sign of fickleness, flightiness, flirtation, mutation, commotion annnd change.

     Which means Venus in Gemini will see us being as lighthearted, jokey, flippant and flirty in our relationships, shopping trips and communications, as it will make us impish, fickle and as commitment-phobic as Bollywood heartthrob Ranbir Kapoor.

     Of course, how exactly 2022 Venus in Gemini will do all this depends on where the planet is transiting your birth chart. So, without further ado:

Your 2022 Venus in Gemini Horoscope

Aries & Aries Rising ♈

     According to Egyptian myths, Isis and Osiris were siblings, which makes their relationship a bit complicated and weird. Oh, but your relationships don’t have to be, Aries. If you’ve caught feelings for a sibling-like person– bestie, next-door neighbor, etc. –put your passions into words. Tell that special someone how much you wanna jump their bones. It’ll take courage and charisma, but you’re equipped with both… 

Taurus & Taurus Rising

     Tell me, have you been lavishly splurging on gifts for yourself? You will be. Venus in Gemini makes budgeting a fitful endeavor. You can’t help but go on a spending bender, especially when it comes to beautiful, whimsical things. Like Aphrodite, when you see something (or someone) pretty (an Adonis perhaps?), you have to have it (or them)…   

Gemini & Gemini Rising ♊

     Girl (or guy), Romeo and Juliet beget that whole love-at-first-sight thing, but you’ll be all about that life. Venus in Gemini cranks up your charm and attractiveness, putting all eyes on y-o-u and making you an eager beaver for finding a star-crossed soulmate. Friends, family, and strangers see you as the most gorgeous and witty being alive. Relish this time as their resident heartthrob / comedian…     

Cancer & Cancer Rising ♋

     Cuddles and kisses may be hard to come by, but communication with your partner(s) is much easier. Venus in Gemini soothes misunderstandings between you and your loved ones (in this life and others)– if you avoid misrepresenting yourself. Tbh, sharing your desires and needs with your partner helps you and them. Sure, words aren’t as satisfying as hugs, but they can heal (or hurt)…    

Leo & Leo Rising ♌

     Listen to this: Both your love life and social life are about to soar. Venus in Gemini connects you with new pals, followers and/or romantic fans. So, start posting on IG (as if you ever stopped). Join a Facebook Art / Fashion / Music-lovers group. Or flirt with people on the street. You’re literally irresistible. (Also, you should have a LOT of good hair days)… 

Virgo & Virgo Rising ♍

     Very often this time of year, you find yourself falling head-over-heels for a person of authority, status or maturity. The good (or bad) news is that feelings for this seemingly mature figure will pass as fast as they come on. Of course, if Mommy/Daddy issues aren’t your thing, know that work issues smooth themselves out and you may get that promotion you’ve been chasing…  

Libra & Libra Rising ♎

     Look, we all know you love commitment, but it might behoove you to consider Venus in Gemini’s urging to embrace your (often stifled) need for freedom. If betrothed, you and your beau could explore your wildest whimsies–together and apart. If single, you may find love–or find out how to love yourself –at an exotic art exhibit. Money from far away places flies into your pocket… 

  

Scorpio & Scorpio Rising ♏

     Still pining for a love you can count on? Well, you might have to wait for Venus in Cancer, because Venus in Gemini makes intimacy–and all that soul-deep connection stuff you crave – fickle: One minute you’re affectionate and want to buddy-up with everyone, the next you want to be alone to brood. That, or your partner / friends / neighbors give you the slip again and again…  

Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising ♐

     Soooo, yeah, you’re looking to date (but not marry) and/or hook up with a partner. Good news, Venus in Gemini brings those partners to you. This transit makes you hella appealing to the opposite sex, and dating apps – Bumble, Tinder, Hinge – could become your new favorite thing. If in a relationship, you and your current boo get frisky like a couple of Riverdale teenagers…  

Capricorn & Capricorn Rising ♑

     Chalk it up to your ruler Saturn, but you’re not looking for romance. At least, not totally. (You still wanna be and stay productive while in love.) Venus in Gemini could attract a reliable worker-bee beau– a Jim to your Pam, perhaps? –but it’s more likely to make your day-to-day routine run smoother. Money is spent on flippant trinkets that make your workspace all pretty…  

Aquarius & Aquarius Rising ♒

     Alright, ready for a love-fest? If you’re a Danny looking for your Sandy (or vice versa), then you’re in luck: Venus in Gemini could help you attract a summer lover and one after that, and another after that… Yep Venus sees you momentarily trading monogamy for polygamy (maybe even polyamory). That or you spend this transit high-vibing solo and self-pleasuring ‘til you can’t see straight… 

Pisces & Pisces Rising ♓

      Pleasing (or unpleasant) as this might sound, your house could become THE social spot this summer. I’m talking: dinner dates, game nights, and soooo many brunches. (This requires some frivolous redecorating!) OR you home-hop and relocate to your bae’s place and do the socializing / decorating stuff there. OR you eighty-six su casa and make a local dive bar / coffee joint / brewery your interim home turf…
