Mars in Gemini
Updated: Apr 3
Curious, flexible, playful, and inspired, Mars in Gemini is the ultimate multi-tasker. This Warrior has a natural ability to scan the field and see which piece is ready to move. Like a juggler balancing multiple balls flying through the air, these individuals focus on the connections between the elements rather than putting their attention exclusively on one area. This approach serves them well until they add one too many balls. When that happens, their delicate balancing act crashes down, creating confusion and feelings of overwhelm. Not to be deterred by a little setback, however, it doesn’t take long for this native to get back on track. Their facile mind and desire for movement reigns supreme.
In the language of Shamanic Egyptian Astrology, Mars is Set, the Warrior King. Gemini is The Sphinx, the Earth Altar linking Heaven and Earth. It is the job of this individual to receive inspiration from the Great Star Nations and then manifest this information as active movement on the Earth plane. This Warrior is a dancer at heart, a kung fu master, a Muhammed Ali prancing just out of reach of his opponent. Right when you think you have him in a corner, he disappears in a flash – like quicksilver slipping away into the ethers.
During this Mars in Gemini period, events in the world and our lives will speed up. There will be a quickening that will provide a contrast to the heaviness of our recent world. This is a good time to attend to matters that require fast resolution.
Mars/Set will remain in Gemini/The Sphinx from March 3 to April 23.
