On the 13th of June Venus the Planet of Beauty and Love will enter the Mutable Air Sign Gemini. Venus is very well placed in Gemini, promoting easy and harmonious communication in interpersonal relationships. Even though Venus is still in Combustion with the Sun, this transit brings us fresh opportunities for movement and change in creative fields and romantic affairs.
There is a very powerful sign exchange (Parivartana) between Mercury and Venus. When planets occupy each other’s signs they mutually strengthen the power of both planets. Venus in the sign of Gemini is ruled by Mercury, and Speedy Mercury is in Taurus, the Fixed Earth Sign ruled by Venus. Both Mercury and Venus are natural benefic planets, and they are also in “Planetary Friendship”, which means that their energies are compatible and their combined efforts are harmonious and positive.
For the next two weeks we can take advantage of this fantastic energy. Communication, love, creativity, beauty and romance all in one. The effect on our love lives is obvious, but also be ready for the combined effect of Venus and Mercury in the professional arena. Every career will benefit from this auspicious planetary alignment, but people working in entertainment and performing arts, writers, designers and especially careers related to IT and media will feel particularly energized and creative. The double effect of Mercury and Venus is also very good for finances, this is a really good time for investments.
As the Sun is in Taurus in conjunction with Mercury for the next few days, and it will then join Venus in Gemini, there is an added strength and brilliance lighting up this already very promising planetary arrangement. We can expect new ideas, new and surprisingly easy and harmonious ways of communication and an overwhelming sense of well being and pleasure even in the midst of our everyday work.
Everything related to marriage, engagements, match making will hugely benefit from the joint powers of Mercury and Venus. When it comes to contracts and legal matters, be mindful of the Mutable nature of Gemini, so read carefully the small print, because in spite of the overall positive outlook of this transit, there is always a possibility of duplicity hidden in mutable signs.
Wear the Planetary Gems of Mercury and Venus (unless it is not advised according to the personal Birth Chart) to better receive and enhance these wonderful energies. Fortunately the gemstones of Venus (Diamond, White Sapphire and White Topaz) can be safely worn together with the gems of Mercury (Emerald, Tsavorite Garnet, Peridot).
Both Mercury and Venus rule 2 Houses in the Birth Chart, so every one of us will receive the benefit particularly strongly in 4 different areas of life. Whichever Houses (Bhava) the Zodiac Signs of Taurus, Libra, Gemini and Virgo occupy in the Birth Chart, those are the areas that will receive the most auspicious energies during this next two weeks. The Horas of Mercury and Venus will have stronger powers during this transit, so make sure you take advantage of this wonderful opportunity by careful planning in order to increase your chances for success.
