What Each Zodiac Sign Can Expect From Venus’s Retrograde In Gemini

Venus in Gemini will be an eye-opening experience for many Geminis and mutable signs. What makes this transit special is that this planet will be going retrograde. Venus enters Gemini on April 3rd, 2020 but it goes retrograde on May 13th, 2020 and Direct on June 25th, 2020. The last time Venus was Retrograde was in 2018 in the sign of Scorpio. To those who were paired up at the time might have remembered the anxiety and tension surrounding us all. We dug deeper with Venus retrograde in Scorpio; we analyzed and discovered parts of ourselves that were tied to pain. Trust issues came to light and our own relationships were tested. The cracks in these relationships were magnified during the retrograde period. Relationships built on honesty and trust flourished, adding a dynamic passion that only Scorpio can grant. Now, the year is 2020 and most of the world is either practicing quarantine or isolation, which leaves many people left with communicating either through the phone, Skype, FaceTime, etc. Venus in Gemini thrives with communication, so this will be a new way to understand where you are in relationships, what you are looking for in a partner. It will push people outside of their comfort zones to speak their truth and be more adamant about what they want. Venus in Gemini will force us for changes to be made, the mysteries will be exposed and the anything built on a lie will fall apart immediately. Instead of paranoia, we will have the need to move on from what does not serve us without holding grudges. Real connections made now will be eye opening, showing us another side to ourselves. After the Retrograde period, we will see the magic in words which will create the foundation needed for honesty and trust to flow.

Aries – For many Aries, your birthday season will be jampacked with surprises and this Venus transit will be no different. You will be comfortable with this transit because you understand the value in communicating. This will prompt you to want to establish new connections and Venus here will rekindle some older ones that were lost. During the retrograde period, it might feel like Déjà vu when people from the past make their reappearance and you are able to engage with them through social media. You may even be more forgiving towards others, or your words will be stinging more than usual. Think before you speak or write. Remember to take a break because those Cardinal transits in Capricorn will persist in exhausting you for most of the year. Do not unleash the fury, but keep it contained and enjoy Venus for the most part.

Taurus – You are Venus ruled, so you will not have many qualms about this transit. You might appreciate the wonders of Venus when it enters Gemini and might be motivated to give yourself some love in the form of material things. Try to be mindful of how much you spend, especially when Venus goes Retrograde because this will be a period of reevaluating what you are worth. Take this transit as a lesson that the material is not forever and there is greater wealth in knowledge and faith. Learn to spark that faith in yourself, because you have the ability to manifest the happiness you desire.

Gemini – A big transit for Gemini Suns and Risings since it will shape how you view relationships. This will be a learning experience for the young and a karmic one for those who are in their 20s and beyond. You will understand what changes you need to make in order to improve how you relate to others. It will motivate you to create stronger ties and help to build a more concrete future (this applies to Geminis in relationships or who are currently dating). You and Sagittarius will reminisce about the ghosts from the past and some of them might make an appearance. Now you have the power to rekindle or cut the chord with someone that was a huge impact in your romantic life. Nevertheless, this is about finding your truth and learning to move on and break free.

To scale our mountains, we actually have to do the deep internal work of excavating trauma, building resilience, and adjusting how we show up for the climb. In the end, it is not the mountain we master, but ourselves.
