GEMINI - "I THINK, THEREFORE I AM."
MARS KEYWORDS: Energy, aggressiveness, competitive, decisive, action, initiative, impulsiveness, adventurous, quick, rapid, physical energy, headstrong, courage, assertiveness and rash.
Mars is in Gemini from April 21, 2017 until June 4, 2017.
Mars is the planet of assertion and drive. Mars (along with the Sun) is the testosterone in the chart. It will describe the degree of force that we go after what we want. Depending on the sign that Mars is in, it will tell us whether we are forceful and confrontational or if we prefer to sit back and watch. It will also reveal what motivates us and what desires drive us most powerfully. The house that Mars occupies in your Natal Chart or Solar Return is where these characteristics will manifest the most.
Mars in Gemini in a very aggressive communicator because Mars rules impulse, aggressive and force while Gemini rules communication. Mars in Gemini can be downright rude, especially when it has hard aspects to it such as squares or oppositions. Those with Mars in Gemini in their personal Natal Chart or Solar Return will need to make certain that are aware of this tendency, especially if they have a hard aspect (squares or oppositions) to Mars in Gemini can cause them to process impulsively and often take things one way, when they were meant to be taken another way. Remember, Gemini has two faces, so the individual with this placement can be aggressive in a positive way, as well as aggressive in a negative way. Even though Mars in Gemini enjoys a great mind wrestle, it tends to be argumentative and 'can be' easily offended and irritable. This is one tough communicator who also carries a tough hard tone. Often times the individual with this aspect with be one who curses a lot and make even smoke. Mars is hard on the lungs with this placement, so I STRONGLY SUGGEST no smoking with this aspect, especially if it is in the natal chart because you would just be asking for trouble (called lung disease) or at the very least, bad breath.
This aspect can cause an individual to be just downright rude and foul-mouthed when there are squares connected to it. And if Mars in Gemini has squares to the North and South Node, this can put a real damper on an individual's level of success that they are able to achieve because the individual's style of communication will invariably hold them back. Mars in Gemini accompanied by hard aspects generally has a dirty mouth and often times smokes. Gemini rules the lungs, so you can see how dangerous Mars in Gemini can potentially be. An aggressive planet like Mars with hard aspects is a health condition waiting to happen. So check your natal charts to see if you have Mars in Gemini natally, or if Mars in Gemini is squaring any of your Virgo or Pisces planets (or Nodes) during this transit or natally. Also check to see if Mars in Gemini opposes any of your Sagittarius planets. While Mars in Gemini is certainly a gift for so many reasons, as all planets in a sign are meant to be, it can come with some ugliness and lip service that is just not appreciated, nor easily forgotten, which will dampen career aspirations if this energy is not checked and addressed by the individual.
EXAMPLE OF MARS IN GEMINI -- Mars in Gemini is 'two-faced' which will sure as I'm sitting here talk bad about their best friend or family member. I know one Mars in Gemini individual who could not wait to get on the phone with me to tell me what their friend said about me after something I wrote in the horoscopes. That person unfriended me, which I would have never known until this person told me. I called that individual 'out' on it and brought this 'tattling' and aggressive communication tendency to their attention. I asked, "How does you telling me this make me a better person?" This is classic Mars in Gemini energy, which is two-faced and attempts to get bad communication stirred between others. Ultimately, this same person ended up unfriending and disconnecting from me a few years later, but I always suspected it would happen sooner or later because of that Mars in Gemini tendency. One face acts out, tattles and stirs the pot between people, while the other face tries to duck out innocently. I'm a Gemini so this kind of communication really rubs me raw when I see it. I suppose you could say that telling you this is 'tattling' but I think it is a teachable moment. Notice, I didn't even reveal whether the Mars in Gemini individual or the friend of this individual were male or female.
This placement makes the mind active, critical and analytical; therefore, that one mis-spoken word could have someone else hanging on it challenging your words or vice versa, wherein you may be doing this to someone else. For instance if you said to someone with this placement, "You should drink more water." That person might aggressively answer, "Oh I should, SHOULD I?" It is merely being suggested that the person with this placement drink more water, but it is not meant as forceful as it is taken. In a flash the other person analyzed the statement, then forcefully and impulsively answered. That is the nature of Mars, which is forceful, aggressive and impulsive. Mars in Gemini with a hard aspect (affliction such as squares or oppositions) creates argumentative and irritable reactions. Mars in Gemini is just a tough communicator and will often find themselves on the outs with others, including friends. If this keeps occurring it would be wise to look within rather than blame shift.
The great thing about this placement is if there are no hard aspects, then it creates a mind that is mechanical and skillful. This is the placement found in the chart of the child that takes the TV or radio apart and puts it back together. In fact, if you have a child like this, then buy old gadgets at rummage sales or thrift stores that they can tinker around with and they may grow up to be an engineer. Mars in Gemini will figure it out!
Since Gemini rulest journalism, writing and interviewing this placement also makes it a wonderful time to further your purpose under this influential aspect. If you are a writer, website builder (like muah) or a blogger, then there is no better time to take advantage of this aggressive energy because you will not tire out during this time. Notice how aggressive journalists, interviewers and the papparazzi will be under this influence.
