Red hot Mars, the warrior planet of assertive action and rising libidos stays in a single sign for just under two months, before charging forth to conquer its next new frontier.
Its planetary motion remains fighting forward the whole year long – Mars will not turn retrograde in 2019.
In Astrology (and in addition to what your personal Horoscope tells…) the 4th rock from the Sun activates our driving force, our motivation and fighting styles. This doesn’t mean its pistols at dawn every time Mars in town, but it does mean you’ll be pushed to find new ways to dominate and get what you want, according to where in the skies, this fiery front-runner lies.
In this collective horoscope Mars charges through the sign of the Twins: Gemini, the third sign of the zodiac.
Under this sky, the collective energy is busy, busy, busy!
Curiosity in abundance
Expect to feel your curiosity piqued by whatever’s passing, as under this mutable astrological transit we all become multitasking mavens, gathering tit-bits of knowledge and interest wherever we go. This makes life a rollercoaster of mental stimulation and data-processing, as the mind needs to work double-speed to filter out what’s unnecessary (which isn’t much, as you may have realized by now…) But a quick-fire should come easily as this is ruling planet Mercury’s specialty. Long-term, though, nobody can keep moving quite as fast as you may like to believe you can… pace yourself.
As the power of the mind rises, communication also takes on a whole new level. You’ll likely find yourself speedily subsumed in negotiations as if you’re not careful that passing comment you couldn’t help making snowballs into something more serious. Fuelled by the red planet’s fiery need for synergy, under this air sign discussions may quickly become heated and debates can spiral out of control. Watch your words.
But if you DO channel this energy wisely, Mars in Gemini is a melting pot of inspiration! This has the potential to be one of the most open-minded astrological transits of the lot! Channel is the operative word though – let these vibes flow through your life, but resist letting them stick.
This looks like:
- Letting disagreements go.
- Understanding the difference between fact and opinion.
- Rooting your conversations in compassion (and avoiding gossip and slander).
- Not berating yourself when you just can’t focus!
As a mutable sign (along with Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces) Gemini is adaptable. But as a lover of change and variety, the second life seems to be repeating itself you’ll get quickly bored and restless, and start looking around for something new. Under this astrology, commitment can be an issue.
This Mars transit also favors collaboration and teamwork. The stimulation and buzz of having other people around to bounce ideas off and keep you company – not to mention divvying up the workload – will help you to perform as your best self. As will creating ways for everyone to work in short bursts and get enough variety to keep motivated.
