By Carmel: Have you wondered lately why you seem to be retracing old ground in your intimate relationships and partnerships? During the lockdown, have you come across old yearbooks featuring a long lost significant person and then heard from the person or seen them? Have you been dreaming lately about lost or still longed for exes and woken up wondering why? Did you break up during this last 2 to 3 months suddenly but are left with a certain feeling that there has not been adequate closure or know deep inside it cannot really be over yet? Have you bumped into one or more significant others unexpectedly?
Venus in Gemini has been retrograde since May 13th which has pushing us to understand with our closest partnerships past and present and getting us to really reevaluate what we want in our love lives. In the mutable air sign of Gemini, Venus is really cerebral energy focusing on the intellectual side of our relationships,and we have all been spending time analyzing and wondering a great deal about matters of the heart, so you are not alone if this situation has applied to you during this cycle. Venus retrograde in Gemini brings back to us many issues from the past and gives us an opportunity to review our emotional connections and reach deep into our psyches to pull out real insights but it can also cause pretty rocky episodes to upset our partnership’s harmony. Some may even have broken up during this cycle with one or both partners in the dark as to what has really happened, but it may not be the end of the story at all!
Venus will move forward on June 25 and in this cycle coming right up,you may find you have answers to the questions you have been asking and for quite a few couples a second chance to breathe life into your love affairs or unions. The best way to handle this kind of cycle when Venus is retrograde is to decide not to allow yourself to sink into negativity but to be smarter in how you relate to others and yourself. Do not react too emotionally to challenges you face during this period as if you use your head you will surmount these obstacles soon!
If you have broken up with your partner or had sharp words with each other, all hope is not lost as Venus going forward on June 25 will give you time to have that longed for second chance. Reconciliations and making up could well be on the table again now.
However, this cycle is also about learning about improving our relationships if they are to endure and move forward, so the message is to take the blinkers off and see the real situation for what it is and be prepared as a couple to work towards better communication with more honesty between you. Conflicts happen for a reason, but they can be an opportunity to grow if there is respect present between a couple. It is equally important to leave toxic relationships behind for those who are not in healthy relationships where respect is not present, and look to better experiences as they clear away the past and grow in maturity.
Venus going forward in the sign of the Twins also signals a period when some could meet their true soulmate as well or their Twin flame so if you are single, start planning more meet ups even if they are from a distance or over the net to give you an opportunity to make this happen.
