Like the Sun and Moon, Venus spends approximately 30-days in each zodiac sign — sometimes longer if it retrogrades.
In general, you can find the dates for Venus in Gemini during the months of April, May, and June depending on its retrograde cycle.
This year, Venus is in Gemini from April 3, 2020 until August 7 when it enters Cancer.
What does it mean when Venus is in Gemini, per astrology?
Venus has a gentle energy.
She rules two grounded zodiac signs Fixed Taurus and Cardinal Libra.
Venus is most adaptable when exalted in the zodiac sign, Pisces.
So, obviously Venus in Gemini is going to exhibit all the sweetness of her personality but with a twist when in the sign of the Twins.
At her worst, Venus is distant and critical, for example, when she’s debilitated in Virgo, a person with this placement may appear to focus more on the act of loving vs the emotional aspect of love and beauty.
Venus is the brightest thing in the sky beside the Sun and the Moon. Venus’ element is water. So, she’s weakest when on fire, like you’d find in Aries.
So now that you know a little bit more about what Venus is all about, it’s easier to explain what Venus in Gemini means, according to astrology.
