Astrobutterfly ~ Venus Retrograde in Gemini 2020: What to Expect

This is an important article by Astrobutterfly detailing the 40 day Venus Retrograde period that begins tomorrow, May 13, 2020. In its usual uncanny way, this major astrological event hits very key areas of my chart. This past year just keeps hitting exact aspects of my natal and progressed charts. If you have planets at or very near 21, 13, or 5 Gemini, you’ll get direct hits by this relatively rare transit that also amplifies the Jupiter/Saturn conjunction at 0 Aquarius this coming Winter Solstice.

As I mentioned in my May North Node posts, the collective North Node moved into Gemini between May 4-5. It will spend 18 months retrograding through this sign, which means extra destiny level changes for any planets you have in Gemini — or its opposite sign, Sagittarius. Again, this transit will hit me in very big, personal ways, as I have four planets in Gemini, including my Sun. Sometimes it feels like I’m on one of those automatic walkways in the airport … just carried along by these mega-astro-events.

In any case, if you have planets in 21, 13, or 5 Gemini, Sagittarius, Virgo or Pisces, then this Venus Rx will affect you in stronger ways — especially if those planets include your own Venus or Moon, or the angles of your chart. Those with planets at or near these degrees in other Air signs (Aquarius, Libra) will receive a Venusian uplift via supportive Trine energy. Even if you don’t have planets or angles at these degrees, you’ll experience changes just by being here now as part of the collective. Here’s Astrobutterfly’s comprehensive post.

And here’s me, just saying hi from sunny Kalamazoo:


Enjoy the journey!

  3. Thanks for the heads up, Laura!! (Moon 21ΒΊ Gemini) πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ You noticed the upcoming Neptune square when we had our last session. Now this Venus retrograde adds another element. And it’s funny… but I could instantly remember back to the 2004 and 2012 VR events & what was going on then, and of course, it fits!

  4. Made me think about this year and timing that we were guided to trust. Getting marriage license today just before this starts and married during last 5 days of it all feels potent. I don’t know my degrees by heart, but have signs in all those planets except Virgo. So who knows. Accompanying a transformative 14/5 year of balance and alchemy where structures actually create greater freedom it feels good. Also around other areas too I’m working on. Lots of potential good changes for everyone I feel. Excited for yours too!

    Yeah, this one is important to me too, since I’m a 1st house Gemini and my natal Saturn is 2 degrees away from 21 Gemini. I’ve merely been feeling it in recent weeks, so now it’s time to begin it.

  7. You’re welcome. Yes, your Moon and my Saturn at 21 Gemini. Big time Neptune activity … and now Venus. I was trying to recall 2004 and 2012. That seems like another lifetime ago! πŸ™‚

  8. Tania, your Moon’s at 22 Sagittarius, so that’s just beyond the Shadow. Perfect! Always good to trust timing. So excited for you and Dave. xoxoxo

  9. Yep! I remembered you had something near 21 Gemini, Kieron. My Saturn is right on it, plus David’s progressed Venus is also right at 21 Gemini … and my progressed Saturn right at 29 Gemini with the NN. My Venus is at 12 degress 48 minutes Gemini, so within minutes of that 13 degree hinge point … and my Mercury’s at 4+ Gemini. Sun at 1 Gemini. First degree to last degree affected for me, if you count the North Node and progressed Saturn. May the Force be with us!


  10. Thanks, Diana!


  11. Thank you Laura…. I have no idea what is in my Chart… But I certainly ‘Feel’ energies… Surprisingly I am in a very calm mode…. In Acceptance I think, I got quickly over the grief which then turned to Anger …. As I saw a deeper layer…. Now I think I have settled into Acceptance and I am hopeful that outcomes from our experiences will take on a positive turn….
    Judging from my own community here, its joining hands spiritually speaking in helping each other and caring for each other… Which I have never seen before. Its a joy to witness..

    And as you just said in reply to Kieron… May the Force continue to be with us.. ❀ πŸ™‚
