Get ready for bright ideas and brilliant conversations. Communication will be speeding up and flying free as Mars moves into Gemini. The last time that the warrior traveled through Gemini was in 2019.
Most recently, this passionate, feisty warrior spent six months transiting in his rulership of Aries (8/16/20 – 1/6/21). So, with his move into Taurus (fixed Earth) at the beginning of the year, we all may have gotten a bit bogged down with overindulgence. With Mars in the sign of the bull we sleep more, we eat more; we take our time. But Mars is about passion, volatility, and urgency. So now that Mars is moving into Gemini (mutable air), get ready to fly.
Mars in mutable air is the passionate, chatty, social butterfly. After all of this time in lockdown we can feel the winds of change. We want to get out and communicate and be in the world. Most likely, we will start to see the virus begin to ebb, and this will allow us the opportunity to get out there. It’s time for the discussions and interactions that we have put off or haven’t been able to get to for the last year.
There are some pitfalls to this new-found desire for interaction…you might actually have to shut up and listen. The need for you to get your point across could be so intense that you might forget that listening, understanding, and acknowledging is part of a conversation — probably the most important part.
Things will be coming at you fast and furiously; it is vital that you don’t forget to breathe. If you meet this energy with that same volatility…misunderstanding, anger, and hurt feelings could knock you off course. Keep it light and don’t forget to listen to your heart… and to others’ words and intentions.
Below I have noted some important dates and aspects that might help you maneuver your way through the next month and a half. If you want to fly, you need to know what you are about to navigate:
