Here's a written piece you can reference during the six months of the Mars in Gemini transit.
Mars entered Gemini at 3:56 a.m. on Saturday, August 20th. It will be with us for a very long time so there are things to be aware of once this influence starts to make itself felt.
Mars is fire, anger, desire, passion, motivation, movement and it also indicates burns, irritation, inflammation, cuts and firearms.
Gemini is the sign of the mind, thoughts, communications, short journeys, information, neighborhood and everyday environment...siblings, extended family, neighbors, and people you are around on a daily basis...like classmates or workplace. It rules the lungs, arms and hands.
You can apply the Mars description to all the Gemini areas. And we can expect arguments to occur in Gemini areas and in general since Gemini is the sign of communications. Road rage can come from increased impatience (Aries) and this is the sign Mars will be in for the political issues in the US and elsewhere.
Mars will bring energy and activity to the house in the birth chart where the transit occurs. It can inspire studies and the gathering of information. And it can create a more socially active period, too.
But, we would be wise to focus on a practice of breathing and detachment to avoid falling into the negative influences of this energy ourselves, or being provoked by others. Using the Bach Flower for Aries, Impatiens, could be helpful. There may be others, like White Chestnut for those thoughts that keep whirling...arguments replayed, what I should have said, etc.. Overload of information and indecision might benefit from Cerato, the Bach Flower for Gemini, that turns our agitated indecision over to the Higher Mind and brings peace.
Grounding and calming essential oils can also help in diffusion or diluted in carrier oil to apply to the skin. Anti-inflammatory Chamomile is one. Lavender and Yarrow are others. Grounding and strengthening comes through Cedar, Patchouli, Vetiver. And adding a bit of citrus like Grapefruit for uplifting or Orange for courage might help, too.
DATES FOR MARS IN GEMINI Mars will be in Gemini through October 30th, where it retrogrades at 25 degrees of this sign and finally goes direct at 8 degrees of Gemini on January 12th, 2023. But, it doesn't leave Gemini until it enters Cancer on March 25th.
All Mutable Moon transits...Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces, will bring conflict moments. And that will also be the case for natal planets in the mutable signs.
As for outer planet interaction, Mars will approach to within 5 degrees but not reach the exact square to Jupiter retrograde in Pisces in late October. But Mars direct will square retrograde Neptune in Pisces in early October and in retrograde, near Thanksgiving in retrograde. In 2023, Mars direct squares Neptune near the middle of March. This aspect causes confusion that increases irritation and travel issues.
As always, for personal information about how this transit and other planetary energies will affect your chart, you can contact me about having a Natal Chart Reading.
