As an individual with a hyper powered 3rd house that is live wire connected to my Venus, I can tell you that there is nothing sexier than sapiosexual Gemini energy. Temporary victory is easy. It is simple to go out there and bring yourself home a live one, kicking them out of your bed in the morning just in time to make breakfast for yourself and clean your sheets. Compartmentalization is not some grand accomplishment. It is literal limitation. What is difficult is real connection; when all the synapses start to spread information like wild fire and you begin a real, complex dance with another’s mind.
You’ve seen it and I’ve seen it; people spouting off how they are a god in their city because they plowed a few hook-ups and satiated their animal lusts. Again, temporary victory is easy. But did they connect? Did they find the eroticism in how one mind fits like a puzzle piece into another? That, Heretics, is a deeper, more nourishing eroticism. That is, when your mind is just as involved in the sex as your body. When each word they speak drips of wanting and familiarity. Though your bodies may attempt to open the conversation, it’s your minds that can truly rip back the veil between two conscious beings. Eros in Gemini energy is coming, and your sex drive will be craving something beyond compartmentalized fucking. Your body is controlled by your mind, and if you do not entice your lover’s mind you can only get so far with their body.
Sex without rapport is like a grocery line conversation. It is merely mumbling about the weather; distraction meant to satiate the present with little regard for the future and complete disinterest in the past. Your body has needs, Heretics, and we can feel these needs in the pit of our stomach. We can feel it in the hunger in our heart and the incessant compulsion to fill something that seems to consistently remain empty. But those weak “conversations” between your body and another’s are like feeding yourself candy for breakfast, lunch and dinner and hoping your teeth don’t rot out of your skull. Eventually the taste of it becomes sickening and you want something more substantial; something that connects to you and your personal pallet and kills the feeling of isolation inside of you.
Mind sex is wrapping every bit of yourself around another. From here, you immediately learn more about yourself than you could ever have if you remained compartmentalized. Eros in Gemini is getting wet just looking at another’s bookshelf, losing your breath watching them confound their mind on something they are deeply passionate about, seduction by play on words, and weakness in the knees when they wish to elaborate their point further. Eros in Gemini wont go home with just anyone. They want witty banter as foreplay. They want you to pry them open with just the right combination of words. They want you to show them just how much you want them, mind and body, so prepare for the mood that urges you toward intellectual intercourse. This is how you move from the stale boredom of hook up culture to the substance; the fun and fulfillment of real connection.
