All roads lead to Rome, Gemini.đź‘­

Is it just me or does Venus sound a whole lot like Venice when referring to Roman mythology? Usually, when we mention Venus, it’s more in relation to beauty, desire, the female body, and every form of art, especially the art of seduction. It hardly refers to the strength of women unless you’re talking about childbirth. It seldomly refers to her prowess but hey history has given us Venus Williams( a fellow Gemini). This teachable moment was probably more about laughing in the face of what we call “certainty”. Maybe it’s not as competitive as “Rumor has it” from Adele but it still shows us the combination of grace and power.

What if Venus’s persona’s true signature is actually Venice, the city? The romantic, picturesque city is known for its many bridges ( 400 to be exact) which can be comprehended as a symbol of compromise, connectivity, relationships, knowledge, even math. Personally, I have never been but one can imagine the idea of a gondola ride to be very pleasurable, especially if the destination is to experience Venice’s finest cafés. On the same note, the experience of falling in love will never be about a specific person because it goes beyond comprehension. That’s why we came up with romantic idioms like feeling the butterflies in your stomach, you are the apple of my eye and a match made in heaven, etc.

In astrology, when you observe the Venus symbol, you’re wondering if Jesus was actually trying to tell us some deeper meaning in his conversation with the rich man.

“Good Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?”

In my opinion, this guy didn’t know exactly what eternal life meant. Today, we talk about reincarnations. However, isn’t it about living different lives and experiences? In this day and age, he could have settled that question by watching a bunch of vampire movies.

“Why do you call me good?” Jesus asked. “Only God is truly good.

That’s another phrase for Jehova’s witnesses to debate with protestants or the likes.

Then he goes on to tell him about following the morals and values that are already established known as the commandments. The rich guy responds that he is on top of that. Then Jesus mentions the last step:

“There is still one thing you haven’t done,” he told him. “Go and sell all your possessions and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.” At this, the man’s face fell, and he went away sad, for he had many possessions.

One, the guy completely ignored the treasure in heaven because he probably thought that these gifts would be received when he expires. I can feel him on that. However, the dude did not mention dying in his statement. Second, he didn’t probe nor debate with Jesus about this supposedly “fact”. He could have asked about getting some of the “ heavenly treasure” now and the rest when he moves on. I guess he didn’t know Jesus was going to become some sort of an advocate, maybe that was the whole reason why he was born. How can you defend the human experience without being into flesh and blood?

Anyways, the rich dude should have stuck around ’cause Peter ask the appropriate question that led to an explanation:

“Yes,” Jesus replied, “and I assure you that everyone who has given up house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or property, for my sake and for the Good News, will receive now in return a hundred times as many houses, brothers, sisters, mothers, children, and property — along with persecution. And in the world to come that person will have eternal life.

But many who are the greatest now will be least important then, and those who seem least important now will be the greatest then.

Since this is Gemini reading, specifically about your Venus placements (Venus residing in which sign and house, 2nd house, 7th house) in your birth chart. This is an overview, especially for Gemini ascendants. Sometimes, the right thing can come in the form of taking a loss now to have a much sweeter victory later. As a mutable sign, you get to live different roles in your lifetime due to your restless nature. However, when you become overly stuck on stupid, on a person, on a situation, on a job, etc, you are not living your true purpose. You know when it’s time to leave but you also know that you’re going to be feeling that free-falling, that letting go, that surrendering.

You bring change, therefore, dynamics differ over time. Your surroundings can change with you or you have to leave (unless it’s your home lol). In the first card(arrow) we’ll be stating the positive opportunity that your Venus placements can bring about with 3 different groups of Gemini (a,b,c). The second card will confirm why. Third card( arrow) we’ll be talking about the other side of the coin, so possibly a negative opportunity can be presented to you. Fourth Card ( arrow) confirmation for the latter. Let’s begin!

The 6 of wands is always a welcoming card, especially in a positive position. It gives me the vibe of the “I Feel It Coming” song. It’s a card of luck but in this case, it was created and is the result of inspired actions. For most of you, you’ve been expecting this good turn of events for a long time.

Group A: Do you see the individual standing tall depicted in the nine of wands card? That’s you! S%%% went down, you look beat up but you’re still standing! In addition, you decided to extricate yourself from people and things that are no longer propelling you toward your goals, your path, and higher purpose. Some people can’t see but your vision is out of this world!

Group B: You are connecting the dots! Your way of life for some time was not making sense because of a lack of balance. From the outside looking in, some people have no idea what you’re really doing! They think you’ve lost your mind or that you’re “ playing ostrich”. Honestly, they’re not wrong! Remove the “tunnel vision” glasses for one second. Allow enjoyment in your life in whatever form it takes. Your loved ones want to take you out and relish some good old memories. They want to spend some quality time with you. On the other hand, you might be realizing that it’s time to meet new people. Maybe the old crew with their ritualistic ways of having fun is getting on your nerves. Maybe it’s time to start your own club with like-minded individuals?

Group C: Someone cannot wait to get their hands on and all over you, lovingly speaking, of course. They’re counting the minutes at work or wherever they are. Sexting could be part of the longing and chase. It’s a different story if you haven’t met the person in real life. You might have fallen in love with the idea of the person. Surprisingly for you, the reality is not far off from the fantasy! Don’t be too hung up on the whens but relish in the fact that it’s coming. You might question my motives for pushing you toward a life of your own choosing and your own making. It’s cliché but whatever you are seeking or desiring is right around the corner ( it might take a year or two for some, keep the faith!). The Sun card is also emphasizing the creation of something brand new! It might be a cute chubby baby (a few of you) or just getting the intentional building bricks to create the kind of life that you deserve.

What should you say a big fat no to? Uno, don’t let anything distract you from getting what you really want on the basis of familiarity. Second, don’t let appearances fool you!

Group A: You got a secret hater in your circle of “ trusted individuals’’. Once upon a time, two friends had a crush on the same person but someone had to lose in the end. He/She may act like she’s fine with the way things turned out but, au contraire, this person can be plotting your demise. Beware of frenemies!

Remember when your parents would tell you not to accept candy from strangers? You shouldn’t give yours away so easily either especially if you’re that kind of fiend. I’m all with going with the flow and I’m not admonishing the joys of sex. However, some of you have used that pretext to jump into relationships! It can just be amazing-toe-curling sex…so come off OOOOOlympus mountain (come on, it is funny!) and take care of business. If that person wants to make you their “business”, they’ll act accordingly and will be clear about their intentions. In other news, for them relationship folks; if you feel like you are being “the mother” in a relationship…please reconsider the dynamics of this relationship. Don’t go running for the hills, now! It’s time to have an honest conversation, that’s all.

Group B: I’m sure you’re aware of the situation that you’re in. However, if you want me to be an echo: This person is emotionally unavailable. Mirror that! Be unavailable to them or it will cost you. On the other hand, there’s an individual that has no grip on reality nor their emotions. They seem very sane but they are not. There is nothing to build with this one unless you want to keep it friendly and light. Spell no to an ex. He wants what he can’t have or his codependency traits have reached a new level. Don’t let your surroundings or people instigate a reaction out of you. Show emotional restraint.

Group C: The 10 of swords is not a welcome card but it makes sense in a no-no position. I believe that some of you have been overthinking your past failures, pulling them out of your memories, and reading them out loud as if its a bedtime story. How can you feel up your cup? Especially if you’re focusing on when situations, relationships, decisions came out pretty much empty. It’s a game you shouldn’t even have to play, it’s time to fold your cards. Sometimes, you need time to recoup, take time off and distance yourself from the problem. What you don’t realize is that by giving it space, something so much better fills it up! On the other hand, you need time to breathe and be alone. You have a winning hand but don’t let external factors overwhelm or blind you from reality. Furthermore, taking a step back can allow the chips to fall where they should…
