Venus (source: Discogs)

Wow! I remember how much I liked that song when it first came out. Those were the days of dancing all night for me. How things have changed!

Anyway, Venus moves into Gemini today. Venus is moving quite swiftly at the moment, spending just over three weeks in a sign. It doesn’t go retrograde again until October, so its helping to keep things entertaining, traveling ahead of the sun. In fact, the planets are a little more stretched-out across the zodiac than they have been for a while, occupying about 190° of the sky (not counting the moon).  2018 saw a couple stelliums form in Capricorn and Pisces. Now things are getting more variable and more interesting.

That’s how I feel this morning — more variable and more interesting — and the ingress hasn’t even happened. I got out of bed with a ton of energy and not a lot of focus. Still, I’m a born multitasker and it feels as if I’m back in my element as I try to balance all the things I need to do. It’s been a while . . .

Venus is the ruler of my ascendant; I should expect it to have this sort of influence upon me. Sometimes I discount the swifter-moving planets when I’m evaluating my own state-of-mind. That’s a mistake. I feel Venus’ movements through the signs quite acutely.

That has me wondering what October is going to be like when the retrograde occurs. I need to pay attention to that. I’ve resolved to work at my new job through the autumn before I make any radical decisions about the direction of my life. It’s interesting that Venus’ retrograde coincides with the dates I arbitrarily set for myself. In the back of my mind, I had the same week of October set as a time to take stock of my situation. Weird, huh?

For now, however, I just want to stay busy. I’ve been kind of bored with the same-old, same-old for months. The fickle, unfocused nature of Venus in Gemini is going to do me some good.
