Venus in Gemini: The Paradox of Love

“What should I do about the wild and the tame? The wild heart that wants to be free, and the tame heart that wants to come home. I want to be held. I don't want you to come too close. I want you to scoop me up and bring me home at night. I don't want to tell you where I am. I want to keep a place among the rocks where no one can find me. I want to be with you.”

-- Jeanette Winterson

Gemini is depicted as the archetype of The Lovers in the Major Arcana of the tarot, and when Venus enters the sign of the Twins, this imagery is quite perfect. From May 9 through June 2, we have a chance to wed all of our inner dualities through our relationship with ourselves and others. Here is where we meet every contradiction, paradox and inner battle on the way to uniting our inner masculine and feminine energies.

How do we reconcile the part of us that wants connection with the part that needs to disconnect and go off in our own heads for a while with no one bothering us? Chances are, we will prefer a more playful connection than heavy commitments or intensity during this phase. There’s also a contrariness that kicks in where we want the opposite of what’s being presented. It’s a time to play with the dance of the opposites.

The love of all-things mental is where it’s at now. If you want to sweeten things up with your beloved, work on the art of good conversation. Be mindful of the words you use and how you say it. Double entendres are especially alluring. Venus in Gemini adores variety and has infinite curiosity to explore myriad creative possibilities. Keep it light, flexible and fun. Love of written and spoken word, and word play in general is part of this phase, as is a passion for learning. Curiosity, teasing, flirting and all forms of trickster behavior are highly seductive now.
