Visualize fluffy seeds in the wind, or a singer in a sky blue dress, strumming her guitar beneath the sun, voice arcing to meet the clouds. Mars in an air sign brings inspiration, creative expression and social connectivity. Here we are extroverted and curious. Reach out and network with others!
Mars transits shape our drive and ambition – Mars outlines the motivating factor. In Gemini, Mars is motivated by a need for mental/social stimulation. During this transit you may be particularly drawn to puzzles, games, journaling, reading or increased social activities. The pace of everyday life will pick up considerably. Inward tempests may manifest, spewing out in a cyclone of cutting sarcasm or petty arguments. Calm your mind by working with your hands.
Short trips, new books, writing letters, gardening, pranayama, spending time with birds, cloud gazing – all recommended. Think jokes and laughter, time spent with close friends or siblings, and creative flow. Gemini is easily bored and operates best when multitasking. Keep moving and stay busy. But don’t be surprised if you suddenly lose interest in something! That’s the Gemini way: obsessed one moment, aloof the next.
Just two aspects worth mentioning: first, Mars squares Neptune on Apr 27. At this juncture, we tend to feel inadequate or undeserving, or we may intentionally deny ourselves happiness. We may be especially fearful of rejection or criticism.
On May 5, Mars opposes Jupiter. Both Mars and Jupiter are agents of fire, ruling Aries and Sagittarius respectively. Jupiter is currently “at home” in Sagittarius, which makes this planetary face-off even more fiery. Typical fire qualities like impulsiveness, strong sexual desire, or risky behavior may crop up. We might regress to a childlike ego. When we work with this energy, we nurture a healthy competitive spirit. Whatever happens, it will be inherently exciting. Leave this day empty, free of plans. If you are already a fiery person, it is wise to avoid social contact. Anger and restlessness come together at this juncture. Repetition of previous mistakes (lessons) is likely. Once again, when we work with this fire, it carries us to new, higher places. A good day to spend outside or hiking.
Mars in Gemini asks us to speak our truth. Draw upon the twins’ wit and versatility to direct your voice. For protection, visualize a blue light at the throat. Power colors for Gemini are turquoise and metallics. Keep your mind open with Gemini Yoga. If you were born with Mars in Gemini, this is your Mars return. To find your Mars sign, click here.
