“Invisible threads are the strongest ties.” — Friedrich Nietzsche
Press on the gas peddle, it’s fucking Gemini season! Everything seems to speed the fuck up at this time of year. And BAM, Venus is having her next ingress. This one kinda hit me out of nowhere. I was beginning to fall asleep from a Taurean induced stupor, cradled by ice cream and soap operas. This is a welcomed fucking wake up call. I feel like someone just dunked me in ice water and told me to get my shit together. It’s party season.
Who hasn’t fallen for a god damn Gemini (god damn fdsjlksadjf Gemini)? Venus in the Twins is a charming muse who skips around blowing minds and bringing a flair of sophistication to any romantic interaction. She makes you laugh, she makes you think, and then she leaves you. And this is why we have all also hated a Gemini.
I absolutely love air signs in Venus. It gives love a flirtatious, easy going nature (which is nice coming out of serious earth). We are crawling out of a period of time where our emotions were worn on our sleeve. The last couple of Venusean ingresses have brought to the surface the flood waters of our heart, revealing to us truer shades of our attachments. Now that we have received our insights, it is time to dive deep into our connections. It’s time to view love from the Air sign’s perspective.
Saturn and Venus are coming into opposition, so I suspect Gemini will give us epiphanies about the grand plan. What do I mean by this? It will show you just why you are connected to the ones you love, and just why you value what you value. We have a primal attraction to what we are attracted to for a reason. It’s an eerie sort of fate, and it gets stranger with a planet like Saturn involved. Saturn is going to give Venus a lot of pressure to address her grand plan. Saturn wants answers, and he wants purpose. He likes structure and lines and containers, and love really rebels against all of this. Love destroys any sense of “container.” The intellectualization of Venus in Gemini fighting a idealistic Saturn in Sagittarius is going to be quite the battle. With these two signs, I imagine two girls fighting in a pudding or something. Hey it’s still fighting, and one of them has to win! It’s just going to be kind of a sexy fight. As the fighting between these two progresses, love will address the structure of our life and the structure of our life will effect our love. It’ll be a tug of war for a while, but one of their influence will overpower the other in your personal chart. However, both will be forever changed from this interaction. The mutable Grand Cross is coming, and big changes are ahead.
How do air signs fall in love? With our brains. No, dead serious. If we can find someone who makes connections in the same way that we do, regardless of their belief system, we find great value in this. Gemini is the flirt for a reason. She is always testing our minds, seeing how everything holds up and if we are able to contend with her. This is plain and simple air sign behavior. Get ready for a lot of this, in yourself and others. Gemini is going to send us out into the world, exploring each other’s paradigms and having a lot of brain sex. Doesn’t that sound awesome?
