Venus in Gemini through the houses   Leave a comment

Woman are from Venus and men are from Mars, but Gemini is androgynous.  Male or female, straight or gay if you have Venus in Gemini you will identify with the story of Androgyne.

The original human nature was not like the present, but different. The sexes were not two, as they are now, but originally three in number; there was man, woman, and a union of the two […] Terrible was their might and strength, and the thoughts of their hearts were great, and they dared to scale the heavens, and they made an attack on the Gods.

The Gods took council and Zeus discovered a way to humble their pride and improve their manners. They would continue to exist, but he cut them in two like a sorb-apple which is halved for pickling.

After the division, the two parts of man (the Androgyne), each desiring his other half, came together and throwing their arms around one another, entwined in mutual embraces, longing to grow into one; they were on the point of dying from hunger and self-neglect because they did not like to do anything apart; and when one of the halves died and the other survived, the survivor sought another mate, man or woman, as we call them–being the sections of entire men or women–and clung to that.
They were being destroyed when Zeus, in pity of them, invented a new plan. He turned the parts of generation round to the front, for this had not always been their position, and they sowed the seed no longer as hitherto like grasshoppers, in the ground, but in one another; and after the transposition the male generated in the female in order that by mutual embraces of man and woman they might breed and the race might continue; or if man came to man they might be satisfied, and rest, and go their ways to the business of life: so ancient is the desire of one another which is implanted within us, reuniting our original nature, making one of two, and healing the state of man.

Hermaphroditus, the two-sexed child of Aphrodite and Hermes (Venus and Mercury) had long been a symbol of androgyny.  All three of these gods figure largely among erotic and fertility figures, and all possess distinctly sexual overtones. Sometimes, Hermaphroditus is referred to as Aphroditus.  In one version of the myth Salmacis was overcome by lust for Hermaphroditus, who was very handsome but still young, and tried to seduce him, but was rejected. When he thought her to be gone, Hermaphroditus undressed and entered the waters of the empty pool. Salmacis sprang out from behind a tree and jumped into the pool. She wrapped herself around the boy, forcibly kissing him and touching his breast. While he struggled, she called out to the gods that they should never part. Her wish was granted, and their bodies blended into one form, “a creature of both sexes”.  Hermaphroditus prayed to Hermes and Aphrodite that anyone else who bathed in the pool would be similarly transformed, and his wish was granted.  Hermaphroditus is associated with marriage the joining of two souls into one.  Even today the most auspicious time to get married is when the sun is in the sign of Gemini.

Venus represents our intuitive emotional responses which include the intuitive expression of emotions physically.  Venus in Gemini intuitively desires to make two one and bond with their other half.  They see the physical expression of their love as part of their need to reconnect with their other half to become one with the other and they have a deep longing for this experience of being complete.  This makes physical expression important to them and they see their loved one as an extension of themselves that they need to hold and touch to heal the wound of separation they feel.

Venus in Gemini individuals are natural charmers and can smooth talk anybody when the mood takes them, this talent is often used to great effect in the work place.   These individuals can talk themselves into jobs with little or no actual experience, they also make great sales people.
