Venus is the planet of love, beauty and harmony. It governs our relationships (particularly our love life) and embodies harmony and cooperation in all its forms. Every year, Venus spends some time in each sign of the zodiac only once, spreading its message of beauty and love to all. As it moves into each new sign, that sign affects how Venus does its work in the world, which in turn affects us here on earth. By understanding what it means when Venus is in a particular sign, we can figure out how to harness its power and strengthen our friendships, romantic relationships and professional connections. Here’s what Venus in Gemini means for all of us.

Signs that benefit when Venus is in Gemini: Gemini, Libra and Aquarius
Signs that may face challenges when Venus is in Gemini: Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces
The overview: If Venus in Taurus’s motto was “chill vibes,” then Venus in Gemini’s motto is “variety is the spice of life.” After the low-key earthy energy of Taurus, Venus in Gemini is a breath of fresh air. This is a time about fluidity in all its forms. The urge to go out and meet people will be strong. Basically, Venus in Gemini turns everyone into a social butterfly.
Love: Gemini is the sign of communication and intellect, meaning you’ll be way more attracted to people for their mind and personality than physical attributes during this time. This is also a time of variety and trying new things—you’re likely to see an increase in high-intensity, short-term relationships versus long-term commitments. And if you happen to see a cute stranger on the train reading your favorite book? That’s game over, my friend. (Well, at least for tonight.)
Career and finances: Venus in Gemini is way more concerned with your social life than your professional life, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still use its energy to get ahead in the workplace! If your workplace friendships have been lacking, use this time to hit up a happy hour with some coworkers or to really try to connect with your boss. Now is also a good time to make sure you have some intellectually stimulating projects on the horizon, otherwise you face falling into boredom and restlessness.
Mood: This is an extremely social time for any sign, where you’ll magically find yourself hopping from social event to social event without even the slightest fatigue. You might also find yourself really craving time with your bestie, as Gemini is the sign of the twins, and Venus is all about partnerships. Can someone say partner in crime?
