Romantic Venus in communicative Gemini spices up the next several weeks with dynamic dialogues. Get your flirt on. Confess a crush. Dare to discuss a taboo topic or two. Question conventions that don’t work for you. With Venus in this curious sign, the urge to experiment is strong. Just keep things honest and watch for mixed messages!

Love can get fickle with Venus in Gemini

The Venus in Gemini transit can make us fickle in matters of the heart, as Gemini is known for its dual nature and love of variety. Just because you can get away with duplicitous acts, doesn’t mean that there won’t be consequences.

Blurry lines will inevitably complicate things, especially if one person is thinking FWB while the other is internally screaming, “At last!” But if you can get on the same page about status, welcome to your spring awakening, in whatever format is best for you and your amour du jour.

If you are with a “happily ever after” plus-one, bring more playfulness to your time together. Take the classic advice of putting a weekly (or more often) date night on the calendar, switching off as planners and surprising each other with the agenda.

Pro tip: Plan outings that spark dialogue. Intellectual banter is an aphrodisiac while Venus hovers in this sapiosexual sign. Venus in Gemini makes people endlessly curious and eager to ask and answer questions. Another way to light the fire in this loquacious planetary pairing: A good old-fashioned game of Truth or Dare. Feel free to be as naughty as mutual consent allows.

Set your system to pairing mode! The search for kindred spirits is on—but not necessarily the marrying kind. Gemini governs our peers and platonic pals, but when Venus travels through this sign once every year, love may be found in the friend zone.

If you feel attraction bubbling up, exploring can be fun—with a caveat. Will a night of fooling around bring drama to your social circle or break up the band? Think carefully before letting the love goggles blind you to potential collateral damage.

Gemini rules all things mobile, including that smartphone in your pocket. Swipe away on the apps and invite in the spirit of playful curiosity. Even if you walk away from a coffee date with a brand new friend, you never know who THEY might know.
