Venus in Gemini – Empress in the Clothes of the Lovers’ Angel

The Empress in the Lovers' Angel's Clothing - Venus in Gemini

Empress as the Lovers’ Angel

From a Tarot perspective, this transit is like the Empress is wearing the clothes of the Lovers’ Angel. She’s switched out her robes and grabbed some wings.

The Empress is the great mother of the deck. She’s devoted, nurturing and capable. Helping her children to flourish is her primary goal.

She’s Mother Earth, the source of all bounty. She celebrates the sensual, and creates beauty in everything she touches.

The Empress is fertility, fluidity, and passion. She’s a goddess of love.

The Lovers, of course, are also concerned with concepts of love. But they’re in love with each other and the thoughts they project back and forth like a mirror.

They want to express everything as openly and honestly as possible, hoping to find some sort of unity in all the contradictions life presents.

The Lovers want to commit to each other, and to the idea that two can indeed become one.

The Empress is thrilled to officiate at the Lovers’ union, but she’d rather be down on the ground giving the newlyweds a hug than floating above like a magical apparition.

And maybe she wouldn’t have chosen gray robes, but she has the knack for making all colours beautiful, gray being no exception.

Venus in Gemini, or the Empress in the clothes of the Lovers’ Angel, is a fantastic time to commit to someone or something you love, or care about greatly. The blessings of Mother Earth are on side.

Assuming of course, you’ve explored all aspects of the issue, be they romantic, familial, professional or academic.

The Lover’s might be in love, but they’re no fools. They insist on looking carefully before they leap.

And during this time, we’re all encouraged to do so as well.

Explore everything that makes up the sensual world. Take part in life. Revel in it even. Then give some serious thought to all that you’ve experienced.

Learning more about the magic of the world won’t break its spell. It’s beauty will only become more awesome through educated eyes.

    When I first saw this picture and read the title I thought you´ve read the Arcana Chronicles. It has nothing to do with that, although the connection you put up doesn´t seems to be a coincedence to me.
    However, I´m not so sure if the Empress fits in this picture, in the way you see her. What I mean is, that The Lovers also represent Adam and Eve (wich you can see in the appletree and the snake next to her). And the angel above them probably represents the archangel who exciled them from paradise.
    Don´t get me wrong, I do think these Cards have a connection, just a different one though. However, although can´t agree with the way you connected them I like your explanation for it. 🙂

      Hi! Thanks for visiting the site! I haven’t read the Arcana Chronicles though I have heard about them … maybe I should take a look. I think you’re absolutely right about the Lovers’ image on the Rider-Waite-Smith version of the card, but that’s not really my focus in this piece, which was uniting the idea of Venus/Empress with Gemini/Lovers. I really appreciate your input though, thank you!! I hope you have a wonderful day and a great weekend!

  • That’s awesome. I’ve never thought to equate astrological aspects to tarot, but it makes so much sense. Thanks for opening my eyes.

      Thanks so much! If you’re interested in the topic, you might want to check out Corrine Kenner’s ‘Tarot and Astrology’. She puts the two together really well.

      Have a great day!
