Playful Gemini Couple in Love
Geminis in Love
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.
It's really easy to find out what astrology sign your Venus is in!
Gemini Lovers Crave Variety
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
Geminis Have Two Great Loves in Their Lives
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.
Gemini Minds Keep 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
Gemini 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.
The Couple in Love
Gemini Lovers Need Space
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.
Questions & Answers
Question: I recently asked "How does it affect your past lover(s) when your Venus is in Gemini?" but to be honest I don't even remember what I meant to ask, maybe I should have framed the question better. It's probably something to do with how past lover affected me or my life when my Venus is in Gemini? Also since you mentioned about nodes, does it also have a correlation in any way with my South Node is in Leo?
Answer: Well, if you have Venus in Gemini now, it's just for this life. But I understand what you are trying to say (I also have Venus in Gemini)! You may very likely have two big "loves of your life" or "soulmates." Just hope it's not at the same time--very confusing and quite awkward, there are stories I could tell! I was blessed with two great loves, one when very young, and the man I married for 34 years (whom I met while seeing the first one).
You are right about the nodes, the South one is about Past lives, and the North one is about this life. They are usually opposite each other in the zodiac sign, but not 100% of the time. We are all supposed to be trying to balance our karma from past lives using the direction or guide of where the North node is in this life. So with the S. node in Leo, in other lives, you were strong, very devoted in love, very protective, and romantic. You showed your heart on your sleeve, and were dramatic. Your North node is probably in Aquarius for this life. So you are a bit aloof in love and are attracted to others on an intellectual level at first.
That's true of the Venus in Gemini too. So, with two air signs, Gemini and Aquarius, you always were attracted mentally to others. Gemini wants to talk a relationship to death or at least will air all the problems, and it's good to get them out in the open. It's fun and light-hearted, even if other planets are in signs that make you more serious. Aquarius loves, but needs to kept interested, and needs a bit more freedom.
This may have been confusing since I talked about Venus and Nodes, two different, but sort of related in love and past life astrology ideas... If I didn't answer this so it made sense (very possible) you can go to my Profile page and email me through Hubpages.com, and we can discuss it more personally. That's open to anyone with a question, by the way.
Question: How is the Gemini women and Virgo man marriage?
Answer: Both of you are good communicators, so you would be able to talk through your problems and interests. You are both intelligent and get bored easily. Gemini and Virgo are what we call squared aspects, so it's a challenge, but sometimes that's good in romance. I can't really tell more with this much info. You are both sociable and he may be more critical. Air and Earth is not the best combination, but all of your planets are in a Zodiac sign, in one of 12 houses with 3 or 4 meanings, I have no ascendants or aspects (the distance between the planets), and everyone has at least 15 major ones. You would have to get Natal Birth Charts done, or at least read some of the answers I gave others to update what little you know about astrology. I can't foresee what a marriage will be like with only Sun signs, and birth charts are not done from here and not for free. I do write many instructional astrology articles so if you look up your birth data on an astrology site, you could benefit from reading some of those.
Question: What is a relationship like between a Leo woman and Taurus man?
Answer: I really can't tell by just Sun signs, astrology is a lot more complicated than that. These are signs that are both fixed, or stubborn. Leos are bossy and like to be treated like royalty. They are a tad lazy. Taurus is hard working and what you see is what you get. But he is romantic, if not in a showy way. He is faithful. It's called a square aspect, so there can be sexual attraction. There will be challenges, but other factors can make them worth it.
Question: How does it affect your past lover(s) when your Venus is in Gemini? (Additional info if needed, Sun in Taurus)
Answer: If you want to know about past lives, it's the nodes in the chart which matter, it has nothing to do with Venus. I have Venus in Gemini. I am sociable, a writer, I like to learn, I have been in love with two people at the same time, and communication is very important to me in a relationship. I want to talk about everything. If your South or North Node is in Gemini, that's different, If you find out, come on back.

Hi, I am an Aries Woman, born April 7th , Venus in Gemini. My boyfriend is a Virgo, born August 28th, Venus in Leo. My moon sign & ascending sign is Scorpio. His moon sign is Capricorn and his ascending sign is Scorpio. I’m only just beginning to learn more about zodiacs & astrology but I want to know more about him and I. Is there anything you could tell me?
Thank you for your time!
Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on December 10, 2019:
Thanks for reading my work and your kindness, Conscious Dreamer.
Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on December 02, 2018:
Thanks. I have Venus in Gemini myself so that one was especially easy for me! Best wishes and thanks for actually reading the article and not just jumping to the end to ask questions. Take care.
Agnes on December 02, 2018:
This was very in-depth. I enjoyed reading, thank you!
Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on May 30, 2018:
I have a Gemini Venus, and did have two big loves in my life. I was very young when I met the first one, and he was several years older than me, which is a lot when you are in your teens. We were both immature being that young, and broke up and made up often. By the time I woke up and realized that the timing was just wrong, I met a Taurus. But I didn't want to rush into things, and was still seeing the first love. I knew it was over, but still loved him, I don't think love ever dies. But I was beginning to really get interested in the Taurus guy. So I was seeing both for a few months. Talk about confusion! I finally fell hard for Mr. Taurus, dated him for 5 yrs. (once bitten twice shy)? and then we were married for 34 yrs. until he passed away 3 yrs. ago. Taurus people are generally faithful, he was, and I was. But I haven't been interested in anyone since he has been gone.
I think for you it has to do not with your birth chart, but how the planets were moving at the times when you stayed in the marriage for 15 yrs. There was likely a transit of Saturn or Jupiter which made you feel secure and settled, or if Jupiter, content and feeling good.
Since Gemini symbolizes the Twins, often we experience two somethings, depending on where it is in our birth or natal chart. Mothers often have twins. We get two job offers at the same time. Stuff like that.
Planet Uranus entered Taurus about two weeks ago, and so that's going to cause changes in your life, even in areas you thought wouldn't change. I do believe in soulmates, but that we have more than one. I believe in reincarnation too. So you probably were with both of these people in different lives, that's the attraction. It's not only applying to Gemini, but loving two people at the same time is.
Since you tried to stay away, and it's been this long and the person is still on your mind, it seems important. The main issue is if you are ready to leave the marriage to pursue it? I am sympathetic, it's a hard position to be in. The Taurus in you does want to be faithful, but that Venus in Gemini does make us bored sometimes. I used to take courses or classes, dancing, metaphysics, go on vacations, anything to try to keep things interesting. Good luck to you!
Domy on May 29, 2018:
Hi, I've Taurus Sun, Libra Moon and Gemini Venus, been married for 15 years. Before marriage yeah I was very easily changed my mind and couldn't hold a relationship for more than 2 years, actually friends even doubt that I'd be able to hold long enough. For the first 12 years I believe I was more of Taurus side, very dedicated and loyal. However, starting in early 2016 I've became attracted to another Gemini Venus suddenly came into life, and have always been trying to stay away (I even moved job just to avoid seeing the person on daily basis because it's getting so confusing). Then I stumbled and read this and could you please enlighten about the two great loves. Is it true the saying about Gemini Venus will always look for their twin soul/flame and connection and all stuff? Being separated from a romantic interest usually worked wonder as I would be bored and went to find something else, but now it's 1.5 years without contact, still can't brush it off. I do believe Gemini Venus able to stay faithful, it's just so tiring sometimes I guess for my Taurus side :D
Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on March 15, 2018:
I have Venus in Gemini too, but mine is in the 8th house, taxes, inheritance, insurance, sex. I have inherited and always did the financial affairs in my marriage. It's the Scorpio house, so although Venus in Gemini is the "social butterfly" talks a lot" position, the house and other factors change it. I also only socialize when I am in the mood.
The 12th house is ruled by Pisces. So that means you are still sociable and accept people for what they are. But it's the house of secrets too, and of solitude, so you do need time alone. Or you may have periods where you go out often, followed by ones where you prefer to be alone or at least want to pursue creative projects without being bothered by others.
You are restless, from both the Venus and 12th house influences. Also artistic and probably a good writer. I still think with that 12th house Venus you can enjoy a party, but not a really raucous one. Best Regards, Jean
Shanthi on March 15, 2018:
I'm a Venus in Gemini person but it's in my 12th house.That makes a huge difference.Though,I'm into different subjects,I don't like to socialize that much.
Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on December 27, 2017:
Well, to be honest, in all my years of astrology study, I've only met one couple who had the same Sun signs. It usually doesn't work, because it's sort of like being with yourself. He can't have a B-day on the cusp, that's an old wives tale. If you give me the date and year, I can look it up so you are positive. He has to have a Sun in one sign or the other. I'm guessing it's Taurus though. Since your Geminis are in Venus, it lightens up a Taurus. Taurus people are quiet and normally only speak if they have something to say. The Gemini makes you both more outgoing. Taurus people are romantic and in it for the long haul. They show their love physically, though there could be sweet words with the Venus in Geminis. Don't play games with a Taurus, it will turn him off big time. He's honest and true.
The Venus in Gemini makes us more teasing and wanting to talk about our relationship (mine is there too)! If you have more planets in Gemini and his are in Aries, it could work. But normally I would advise you are too much alike. If you want me to look up the true Sun sign for me, I'm at email@example.com. Take care.
P.S. Journaling is good for you, it's a healthy way to get your emotions out.
Cande on December 19, 2017:
Hi I'm a Tarus my Venus is also in Gemini. I'm dating a Tarus Aries cusp who's Venus is also in gemini. he was born April 20.. me may 15 I read about him and can see we are the same in so many ways yet different in the way we communicate and express emotions. He is the more emotional one and I'm the more optimistic one. I have a curious mind and a positive attitude. Yet also am not satisfied unless I'm trying to capture the heart of my love interest. I'm wondering if he is the same way, then mabe sometimes I should pull back and play hard to get, or be a little more misterious instead of telling him everything I'm thinking. Because he listens but has very little to say. I recently started writing down every thing I'm thinking just to get it out of my head. I'm constantly studying any and everything..I never knew it was due to my Venus in gemini..does that mean he might be the same way? How can I get him to talk.. IDK..lol sorry for rambling..I was just trying to say thank you this was a very intriguing read..
Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on September 26, 2017:
Thanks. It's hard when you have been with someone since being so young. I feel like I was cut in half. I haven't dated yet with all the other stress going on. It's affecting my life and finances a lot.
valerie on September 26, 2017:
yes, gemini is very loyal, once they find the "right" fit.
i guess from outside, people think they are disloyal due to fickleness which is a judgment.
sorry to hear about your taurus husband passing.
Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on September 26, 2017:
You've got that right. I was dating a Taurus for 5 yrs. and married to him for 34 more until he passed away. They are loyal to the end. I miss him terribly.
valerie on September 26, 2017:
hi jean, i watched a Gemini venus in action while watching the netflix series, Terrace house Aloha version. lol They have all the character's placements, and birthdays on wikipedia. The gemini venus man is very emotional, he has cancer sun cancer mars. But his way of trying to find love was to date every girl there. lol :D so he could get socializing and find the right "niche"....
the only young woman who didnt like that approach was an Aries woman with Taurus venus. I laughed at the astrology. Because taurus hates that fickleness.
Jean Bakula on January 12, 2017:
I'm happy you found the article to be helpful. Try to turn off that busy Gemini mind once in a while to recharge. Best Wishes
Jean Bakula on January 12, 2017:
Thanks so much for reading my work. Make sure that you give your busy self some rest time!
Lis on January 12, 2017:
Spot on! I have Venus in Gemini and this could not describe me better. Great job!
Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on May 21, 2015:
It's always great to hear from you!
Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on March 24, 2015:
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.
Nell Rose from England on March 24, 2015:
Hi, this is fascinating! I am a Gemini but not sure about Venus, but a lot of this made me smile as yes I can relate! interesting stuff, nell
Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on March 18, 2015:
Hey, great to see you! I always remember what a great writer you are, I'm glad you are back.
JanikaLeeReyes on March 18, 2015:
Hey Jean! It's been such a long time! Like always you teach me something new and give us something wonderful to hope for!!!
Ill stop again soon!
Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on March 17, 2015:
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.
Doris James MizBejabbers from Beautiful South on March 17, 2015:
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.
LongTimeMother from Australia on March 17, 2015:
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 +++
