Mars: fiery warrior of the solar system, ruler of the body and all its carnal urges. Mars channels fresh, invigorating energy into the body, like the first day of spring.
With Mars in Taurus since Jan 6, life has slowed way down.Even though it’s a sleepy influence, Mars in Taurus is also very peaceful and soothing. On the first day of this cycle, I finally got relief from migraines that had been plaguing me for wayyy too long.
Mars will be spinning high in the sky with airy Gemini. 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 movement, travel, and social connectivity. We will more feel spontaneous, curious, and extroverted.
Mars transits shape our drive and ambition; Mars outlines the motivating factor. In Gemini, Mars is motivated by a need for mental and social stimulation. The pace of everyday life will pick up considerably. Vacations, puzzles, games, new books, pen pals, gardening, spending time with birds, cloud gazing – all recommended. Gemini easily gets bored and operates best when multitasking, so 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.
On Mar 21, Mars trines Saturn in Aquarius. This is also the first day of Venus in Aries and the quarter moon in Cancer, so it will be packed with energy and activity. This influence brings feelings of deep contentment and pride in our accomplishments. A great day to celebrate how far we’ve come.
Mars squares Mercury on Mar 23. We just saw this aspect on Feb 10, one day before the Chinese Lunar New Year. Mercury was still retrograde at this time, so I’m thinking that the revisitation of this square will bring more harmony and resolution. But if you’re feeling “off,” this is why.
Lastly, Mars trines Jupiter in Aquarius on Apr 16. This influence brings wonderful energy to the body. Playful, lively influence.
Call on Gemini’s versatility to guide your voice. For protection, visualize a blue light at the throat. If you were born with Mars in Gemini, this is your Mars return. To find your Mars sign, click here.
