“My words have power. I express myself with clarity and intention.”
After the Full Moon intensity, the skies lend a calm week ahead. This week’s most important astrological event takes place on Saturday, when Mars enters Gemini. The reason why this is incredibly important is that this is the part of the sky in which Mars will have its retrograde later in the year. Normally, Mars spends about one month and a half in a sign—but in this case, Mars will stay in Gemini until March 24th of 2023!
In mythology, Mars was the God of War and the assertive, directed, forthright protector of Rome. In astrology, Mars is the planet that rules our energy, drive, assertion, and ambition. It is the planet that gets us out of bed, rules our sexual drive, and keeps us motivated. It is the epitome of masculine or yang energy, and how we express our anger.
Gemini is an air sign, focused on intellectual pursuits like learning, teaching, and communicating. This is a zodiac sign of endless curiosity, as its core energy is what first connects us to the external world. During the time Mars is in Gemini, our words gain immense power in all manifestations—spoken, thought, and written. The way we express ourselves as well as our inner talk take precedence from now until the Spring of 2023. So… take note!
When the shadow vibration of Mars in Gemini manifests, words can be hurtful. Impulsivity could get the best of us, and speaking before thinking can have consequences. Luckily, this planet sign combo has many positive manifestations. For starters, Mars in Gemini gives our sexual interactions a more intellectual approach. Over the next six months, deep and interesting conversations connect us to our bodies and a good debate becomes foreplay!
Mars in Gemini can also be extremely helpful to work on any communication or media-related project. Finishing that book, recording that podcast, or fine-tuning your brand’s voice are great ways to invest this energy. While all the work we invest in them now will have to be revised and reformulated during the Mars retrograde (October 30th to January 12th), in the end, we can master the project we decide to work on.
For those that know their birth chart, it’s key to pay attention to the house of your chart ruled by Gemini. This will add another layer of significance to this powerful transit.
