'Maria' by Michael Parkes

‘Maria’ detail by Michael Parkes

Astro-LOA Flash:  Venus glides once again into the airy, free spirited, intellectual sign of Gemini, giving us a lift when it comes to our powers of attraction. Following Jupiter, and asteroid 896 Sphinx, she catches up to them at the end of May where a meeting of the minds will transform perceptions. Don’t be surprised if you have to solve a riddle to move forward!

Venus, now our evening star, is a symbol of the powers of attraction. She rules love (epithemia), sex, affection and sensual pleasure, and also what we value aesthetically and artistically. Where Venus resides is where we can attract naturally, where we can win others over to our side. It also depicts a desire for relatedness, not so much for the sake of merging but for the determination of deeper values. Through one-to-one relationship, personal values are identified, refined and adjusted.

VENUS INTO GEMINI
LA – Thursday 8.02 am
NY – Thursday 11.02 am
LON – Thursday 4.02 pm
SYD – Friday 1.02 am

The sign of Gemini is light, breezy, curious and open (obsessed) to learning. Think: loves space, freedom and variety. Knowledge is power so this is a time to KNOW what you desire. Get current with core values. Get conscious about how you attract experiences into your life.

Note: Anyone with natal, progressed or Draconic planets at critical degrees of the the Mutable Signs (4  and 17) may notice the transit of Venus over theses points strongly as Venus ruled experiences come to a head  – relationships, food, money, values, ideas about the body . . .

Also consider the decanates: What are they? Simply, one of the ways to divide the signs to show deeper meaning. There are several traditional ways to do this – the following is my favorite.

The first decan takes on the full nature of the sign itself. The second decan adds qualities of the next sign in its element and the third taking on the subsequent sign of its element.

0 to 9 Gemini 59′: Gemini/Gemini The first decan of Gemini is powered by pure Mercury energy – curious, restless, thinking, flexible and adaptive. This decan gets bored easily and needs diverse stimulation to keep the interest up. Multi-tasking is essential.

10 to 19 Gemini 59: Gemini/Libra The second decan combines Venus’ sensuality and social grace with the flexibility and curiosity of Gemini. It wants to play and share! Repetition and  routine is the nemeses, so amp up interactions-intimate and artistic connections. Likes to partner.

20 to 29 Gemini 59: Gemini/Aquarius The Saturn/Uranus decan of Gemini increases the need to express healthy ambition without getting trapped or over burdened. Super autonomous and freedom loving. Zany. Stimulation is vital and so are group projects or contacts with like-minded friends.
