Venus enters Gemini

Is it your imagination or did the overall mood somehow get . . . lighter? Yes, there are still inflation worries, the war in Ukraine, and concerns about Democracy teetering on the brink, but somehow it feels like people are smiling, chuckling, and even making jokes that others aren’t taking offense to. You have Venus in Gemini to thank for this breath of fresh air. Venus is always a people pleaser, but it’s her presence in happy-go-lucky Gemini that breaks the ice and gets everyone feeling chummy. And don’t be surprised if you find yourself reconnecting to friends whom you haven’t spoken to in ages. Yes, you may still have your ideological differences, but that doesn’t mean you have to talk about them. Signs most affected: Taurus, Gemini, Virgo and Libra
