Relationship Communication Tips for Your Zodiac Sign:
So, what can you do to make sure you’re connecting mentally and communicating openly during this long period with Venus in Gemini? Read on:
Communication is number one for you during this period, and you can work on old communication issues or try to talk about something you have before. You may lack mental patience, and this can bring out lots of fights and miscommunications, so try to get some control over your mental energy. Having an outlet for your mind can be helpful.
Mental energy may be slower during this period, and you may want to give yourself plenty of time to make your point, to talk things out, and to understand what others are saying to you. Do watch for stubbornness, which may be at an all-time high! Open your mind and really listen to the people you care about and trust.
Venus is in your sign, and you can focus on how to connect and reconnect. You may bring people back into your life, and you can talk about things that should’ve been talked about a long time ago. In existing relationships, you may want to speak first so you can get things off of your chest and then allow for others to have their say without interruption.
You may be less inclined to share openly during this period, and keep a lot of your thoughts and opinions to yourself. Try to make time for those you care about and trust to be open with them privately, without anyone else getting in the way. You can feel more comfortable being open behind closed doors, and can speak up about things from the past or dive into your subconscious.
Try communicating in new and different ways. Shake things up a bit with your communication style, and listen to a diverse group of opinions. Your friendships may get a lot of attention during this period, and if you’re in a romantic relationship, you may want to work on the foundation of friendship.
Communication during this time may be focused only on what needs to be said and nothing more. There may be less patience for verbal fluff, and you want everything said to have a purpose. Try to make sure you don’t shut people off just because you don’t think they’re making a point. Be thoughtful with your words.
You can feel more open to sharing big stories and big ideas during this time, but may struggle with the details and little picture. Don’t ignore those things, otherwise you may miss something you need to see. Also, watch what you say during this period because you may be more likely to make promises you can’t keep. Be realistic with your words.
This period may have you even more focused on serious matters, and you can tackle serious subjects with those in your life. You can take what you say very seriously, but this may come across as a little too intense at times. Try to give those in your life a little breather so they don’t feel like you’re suffocating them mentally. Let them have a say, and don’t just impose your will.
Open lines of communication in your relationships can be incredibly important to you during this period, but not only for you or only for them. It only works if the lines of communication are open for both of you equally. Have balanced give and take, otherwise the lines of communication may become closed off.
You may be inclined to pay closer attention to the little things in your relationships and with the people in your life, but this may lead to being picky, to picking others apart, or to being even harder on yourself. Try to approach the details from a place of constructive action, so you can use the information but not be too caught up in perfection.
Ignoring the serious problems may be a problem during this period, but you want to enjoy yourself so much and just focus on the love that you don’t feel much like dealing with anything serious. This can lead to bigger problems though, so don’t paint such a rosy picture. Recognize what’s there, and address it quickly. This is the best way to give yourself lots of time for love.
This is a period where you’ll want to focus on merging what you feel with your words, and expressing how you feel can be more important. You may stumble over your words at times and struggle with finding the right words to say, but others can sense what you mean, and you can sense what others mean.
