Busy Woman


A Very Agile Mind

Oh damn! Gabrielle left the house about ten minutes earlier, and just realized her “to do” list is still sitting on the kitchen counter. It’s a good thing she has Venus in Gemini, a quick, sharp mind which can think about many topics at once. Can she reconstruct the list? No problem. What was the plan? Oh, of course. Stop at the ATM to get some cash. Pick up the suit at the dry cleaners. Drop off the books at the library, along with the donation to the food pantry downstairs, which she coordinates for the Democratic Club. Pick up a few things at the supermarket; she already has her reusable bags in the trunk of the car, as she’s been a convert to reusable shopping bags for ten years now. She cares deeply about the environment. Environment. Hmm, oh, yes, the Letter to the Editor she wrote last night needs to be mailed. It’s all coming back now.

Stop at the bakery to get a fancy dessert to compliment that dinner she’s cooking for Gordon tonight. Maybe a few scented candles too. She needs to make a chiropractor appointment for herself, and one for a yearly check up for Gordon. Lists? Who needs lists? People with Venus in Gemini are walking wikipedias which update themselves every few minutes. It’s a wonder they can keep it all straight. And they will change their minds about everything several times anyway.

Two Lovers with the Same Style

People with Venus in Gemini crave variety in their social, intellectual and romantic lives. They are normally taking a course about something new, just to keep mentally active (as if they need to be more mentally active). These are people who love to socialize, get out and talk to other people. Even if they have a retiring Sun sign, they still like to be around others, in the middle of a group, just to keep up with the things other people are saying and doing. These are very witty people, and normally they are ruled by what they think, not by what they feel. This can vary, depending on other astrological positions in their horoscopes, but even a gentle Cancer with Venus in Gemini is likely to get upset about something, think it through by cleaning out a closet, and then continue on as if nothing happened.

Venus in Gemini people are intellects with very agile minds, so those minds must be kept busy. They love to read, see movies, just talk, talk, talk. And since they think about so many topics at one time with ease, they forget other people do not have this gift. It’s a good thing her BF also has Venus in Gemini. Gordon also discusses several subjects at one time, expecting others to keep up. Gabrielle can usually figure out what three of the things are, but gets others mixed up. He wants to walk the dog and then play racquetball? Or he wants to join a health club because he thinks walking the dog is not enough exercise. No, wait, he wants a new dog so the old dog has a companion, and he wants to join a health club with her. Silly. Why didn’t she understand that right away?

Relaxation is Needed


Possible Two Great Loves in a Lifetime

Since Gemini is the sign of the Twins, a person with this Venus placement will often have two great loves of their lives. Hopefully not at the same time, though this may be possible. Venus in Gemini people are capable of being faithful in a relationship, but they do get bored. So if the other person is wise, they will be sure to keep thinking of new places to go, new things to see. The Gemini in Venus lover is often attracted to another first on a mental level. If they are interested and respect this person for their intellect, the relationship can go somewhere. Since Gemini is an air sign, they are sort of refined (not prudish) and will not like crude jokes or any kind of racial slurs. If they see you stare at a handicapped person or different looking person or find you rushing them in some way; that could very well end your relationship right then and there.

Venus in Gemini people love to travel to see new vistas, to learn about new cultures, and live life on their own terms. I confess, I have Venus in Gemini, and adored both Henry David Thoreau and Margaret Mead; both were heros of mine when I was a teen. I was fascinated by the way she was so independent, and traveled all over the world to study people from other cultures, and to learn from them. I never got over Thoreau I guess, I still live in my little house deep in the woods. I was recently telling a friend about the directions our lives took compared to what we thought they would take when we were much younger, and she burst out laughing. She said she could see woodlands from every window and doorway of my home, and that I was doing a good job at seeing the world too! Sometimes it is nice to know that our core values didn’t change throughout all of our life challenges.

Minds Always Going

Venus in Gemini people are free thinkers. They like to view an issue from varied and original perspectives. This can make it hard on them though, because they also want to be fair, and can see the good in each perspective. So they waver back and forth, and have trouble making decisions. They need to just take their time. It is also a good idea to get them to relax more, because a mind going at that speed can really frazzle out a person. Venus in Gemini people do need down time, so meditation or long walks are good for them. They have trouble turning off their thoughts at bedtime, and also trying to focus in on one thing only. But if that one thing is important, once they do focus on it, think lazer beam. They will be brimming with ideas on whatever the topic may be, and have unique thought processes

A Love of Math and Word Games


Favorite Games and Career Ideas

Gordon probably loves to play word games too, on those rainy afternoons when outdoor activities are not a good idea. He’s a busy guy too, he volunteers to teach young kids soccer on Saturdays, works with older people on literacy and English as a Second Language classes, and studies martial arts. He is as well read as Gabrielle, and they spend lots of time discussing plot lines and characters. Gordon is the guy everyone calls to fix their computers, he actually understands how they work. Both probably dreamed of being writers, or may actually write as much as they can. They are both outgoing flirts, but their flirting is usually harmless, and not to be taken seriously. Both really know how to turn on the charm.

A Venus in Gemini person would make a great travel agent, and may be one who holds down several part time jobs instead of one full time one. They are well spoken, and usually do well in the arts, writing, speaking (if the Sun isn’t in a shy sign), music and drama. Many actors and lead singers are Gemini or have Venus placements there. They are refined, intuitive, clever, original, friendly, and have the strength of their convictions when they express their ideas. They like spiritual subjects, since they are curious people and enjoy mystical things, being very open minded. Venus in Gemini people have good relationships with siblings and neighbors, and generally like it when everyone gets along well.


Changing and Growing Together

Since Gemini is a mutable or changeable sign, this placement can be an indicator of more than one big love affair or marriage in life, but the natives are capable of staying in one if it is satisfying. The key is in finding a partner who shares interests, and also has enough of their own to not be clingy. Venus in Gemini people do not like to be bogged down or burdened with people, they like to flit about alone at times. If twins run in the family, this is also a sign that if Gordon and Gabrielle do take the plunge to become parents, twins may be in the future. These children will know a lot more than most their age, because this couple will just carry on with life, taking the kids along all the time. These children will know how to behave in a museum, library or elegant restaurant by the time they are three years old. This couple has a bright, if busy future, and will remain happy as they grow together and find new interests and new dreams. Even if they grow in different directions, they will continue to learn from each other, and will find this interesting, whereas a different couple could find that a negative in a relationship. Their positive and continually different attitudes about life will take them far in life.

      Hi Nell,

      Always nice to see you! As you know, each planet and the Moon and other bodies are in their own astrology signs too, so it's hard to talk about one planet like this. But I keep trying, so at least people understand that much. Take care.

      Hello MizBejabbers,

      Sometimes no matter what planet I write about, people read the piece and mistake it for the Sun being in a sign. If your Venus is in Virgo, then you probably have planets in other signs and houses that change the effects of a Venus in Virgo. Every planet is in an astrology sign, a house, and the distance or aspects from other planets all make a difference. Your chart or picture of the sky at your birth time stays the same, but the planets are still moving every day, so when you get a horoscope updated, the astrologer puts the planets on the chart where they are now, and see how that affects the planets when they were at your birth. I hope that helps. Many of the astrology sites have incorrect info, or leave out important things.

      Hi Long Time Mother,

      I'm glad you are enjoying these, they are fun to write. Since Venus isn't far from your Sun, sometimes it's even in the same sign, so then it's not so different from your Sun sign. But most people have Mercury and Venus in a sign next to their Sun sign, or in rare cases, it can be two signs away. It's a concept I can't get people to understand, but I do charts with the old books I used when I learned how to calculate them. Take care, nice to hear from you.

      My metaphysical mentor always told us that after a soul passed a certain spiritual initiation, only esoteric astrology applied to that soul. I read your Venus in Virgo, which I am, and it didn't fit me at all. This Venus in Gemini describes me pretty well, so I guess she knew what she was talking about.

      I greatly enjoy the way you write these profiles, Jean! They always inspire me to go and check (again) if I know any people who fall into the category. Voted up +++
