And I’m only here
To bring you free love
Let’s make it clear
That this is free love
No hidden catch
No strings attached

Venus in Gemini is one of the most romantic and exciting placements for the planet of love and beauty. I would like to dispute many of the common views of this placement.
For example, you may have heard that Venus in Gemini people get bored easily and don’t like emotionally heavy relationships- which for some reason leads to the paranoid conclusion that they are likely to cheat. I don’t agree with any of this nonsense, in fact Gemini is one truly romantic sign for Venus to be. Venus at the end of the day rules not only love but also our values- what we hold dear in our hearts.
A Gemini Venus is looking for a very specific kind of relationship and won’t settle for anything less than a true soulmate match. Yes, they will not stay in a relationship that doesn’t hold on to this ideal- and they may even exit without a second glance at their broken hearted partner. But it isn’t out of some malice- they just believe in that one true partnership and they have no doubt you should do so too!
The kind of love they look for is a partnership of two equals that can keep each other interested- leading to growth, a partnership of two that are made stronger and better by being together.
They have a deeply hidden fantasy of this person and relationship. It usually evolves a lot of play, adventure, excitement and sweet moments where they get to exchange kind words with their loved one. There is something almost childlike about how they view romantic love- they want to it to be cute and fun and full of “togetherness”. As long as their lover is by their side they are happy- no need for money or crazy nights of passion. They just want someone who is sweet, kind and fits their secret ideal of a perfect friend.
Many of them had a friend like that when they were little- and they tend to look for a similar person when they grow up. They tend to express love and care in an inconsistent manner – some day they are all sunny and bring you flowers for breakfast and the next they might disappear on you completely to become engaged in some strange activity. In that sense they are indeed slightly hard to rely on- but once you get used to their comings and goings you will notice a repeating pattern. They usually engage with you for a while and then become entranced by something else- but if they love you they always come back.
If you try and scold them for their behavior you will only get sad puppy eyes or some long funny story. It’s best to accept them as they are and enjoy your moments of freedom.
A jealous partner would make Gemini Venus people sad and lost. They become confused when their “best friend” doesn’t allow them the same thing which the give with ease: freedom to discover and change. If you want to keep them happy it is best to use sweet talk or simply hold their hand. In some ways this Venus is truly poetic and appreciates the world of theater, poetry, literature or even cheap romance novels. They like to be swift in their actions and don’t like to linger too long on one thing. They probably would solve most arguments with ease with the use of a sharp tongue and a touch of humor. They are very charming in their ability to shift and change and they are never at a loss for words of love.
The Venus in Gemini is the kind of prince who would exaggerate his heroism for the sake of the story, he the kind of guy who will kiss your eyelids every morning but forget your birthday. She is the princess who asks you to slay the dragon for some action – but as long as you’re cute she doesn’t care if you actually do. This is the girl who looks innocent but is a dare devil at heart- and she wants you to respect that. They both may sound untruthful at times- but this is because they are inventing the truth as they go along- it is true for them! They can create the perfect love story and tell all their friends about how you met. In fact they love to create a fantasy around your relationship: how you met and how it was love at first sight. They need you to like and enjoy them more then they need you to love them. Love is friendship that never ends.
In some ways they cannot accept the truly painful emotions that a lover may hold within them. To them if a relationship is good- their partner should feel good and that’s the end of it. It a lover feels pain, hurt, confusion- they feel something must be wrong with the relationship. To make them understand it is best to try and be rational about your emotions and talk and talk some more.
They are deeply caring and loyal to you (once they are) and would probably figure an unorthodox way to make you happy. Women with Venus in Gemini are very easygoing in love. They will charm you with their ability to just be with you in the moment- having fun. They would also be amazing in communicating their appreciation of you. If you are a good listener, have a sense of humor and don’t accept any promises from them- it should go wonderfully. It is important for them that you don’t fill their lives with negative energy and situations.
They might stay at first out of curiosity (curiosity killed the cat was about them) but soon enough they will see you are no friend to them. Men with Venus in Gemini tend to be able to charm the opposite sex with ease, as they are very good with words and presenting an image of playfulness. At heart they are yearning for that soulmate- they know who the perfect girl is. She will be that person who would always be by their side- there to see them make amazing discoveries but also stupid jokes. They want a girl who embodies a spirit of cleverness but who is also “the girl next door” in many ways. They like girls who are both ordinary but at the same time slightly quirky and strange.
Both want a friendship that will last a lifetime- they may believe in that. Until they find it- they would be big flirts that are still searching for the one. If you have a crush on either all you have to do is be sweet and unthreatening in your approach- let them chase you not the other way round.
Some good matches for this Venus (of course the whole chart should be looked at) are for man: women with Venus in Aries, Libra and Taurus and for women man with Venus in Aquarius, Sagittarius and Scorpio.
Tips for lovers : speak up, be your crazy self, be your own person.
They can benifit from a more sobre and stable partner as long as they ahve somthing starnge or intresting to offer.
