While there may not be a whole lot of movement in the cosmos this week, there is one very important and exciting transit lasting well beyond these seven days. Fire, passion, curiosity, and discovery.
Change is on its way!
Mars enters Gemini: August 20
Mars Retrograde in Gemini: October 30 – Jan 12, 2023
Mars leaves Gemini, enters Cancer: March 25, 2023
Where Mars usually spends around 45 days in each zodiac sign, this week marks the beginning of a seven month stay in the sign of Gemini. Mars will move through its retrograde in Gemini beginning late October and lasting until January 2023. This seemingly backwards motion is why it’s spending so much time in the one zodiac sign.
When there is such an astrological emphasis on a particular energy, we listen. Each transit within astrology is an invitation to remember, embody, grow, and return to the self through a very particular theme or lens that the transit speaks to.
Mars in Astrology is our warrior planet. It is all things passion and drive, motivation, and strength. Each planet and zodiac holds a particular role as a teacher and as an invitation. Mars is the fire that propels us forward in the direction that is calling our name. It urges us to move towards our goals, take steps, and make the changes that we know are for us. It is an entire source of energy on its own, and by connecting with Mars, it’s as if we are gifted with an extra motor to keep us moving.
Gemini, a sign ruled by the planet Mercury, speaks to all things the mind, communication, and information. It loves variety, movement, speed, and learning. It is flexible and deeply curious. Gemini is a social sign that wants to take in as much information as it can from every possible source, and then, it wants to share it with anyone that will listen. Collecting information and sharing information. From every topic, every direction, every alternative walk of life or new perspective. With this curiosity and diversity, it’s a sign that is very changeable. It’s not fixed in any one way of being or way of seeing the world, rather it shifts and changes, moves, and transforms.
As Mars and Gemini come together, as do passion and curiosity, motivation and mental energy, drive and exploration. This seven-month collaboration of cosmic energies opens the door for vibrancy and expansion, intellectual breakthroughs and opportunities for growth. Mars and Gemini together are Fire and Air feeding each other, motivating one another, and growing together.
Mars holds an intention for this transit that is unique to each of us, but with Gemini as curious as it is, the motivation that is sparked throughout this seven months may not be geared towards one fixed direction.
It asks for a certain exploration of where Mars wants to take you. There can be periods of questioning, discovery, sharing, more questioning, learning, and re-discovery. Moving in one direction and then shifting into another.
With an entire seven months of this collaborative energy, we know there is space here for patience, we know that whatever unique lesson this transit holds for us will take time to unfold.
Don’t be afraid to be flexible, to let curiosity guide you and to try new things. If you find yourself walking in a certain direction, try to do so with open hands without clinging to a particular outcome.
There is no right or wrong way to do life here, and if you are guided to then move in a different direction, let yourself pivot. Every direction is open, every path is available, and not only is it by walking upon each path that we can discover what is in greatest alignment, but we also grow, expand, and meet ourselves in new ways with each step taken.
As Gemini rules the mind, we may find that this transit brings an intellectual hunger. This can be a period of questioning and learning, taking in new information and exploring new topics. Books, podcasts, courses, speaking, writing, anything that can feed the mind of all the incredible wisdom and information that is available within our magnificent Universe, take it all in. Soak in the topics that light your inner fires of passion. Explore new fields that feel like pure excitement. Your mind is active and ready.
This is an exciting time for each of us. A time of true expansion and change. Mars will have its own unique objective for each of us throughout this process, which can be unpacked by looking at our own natal chart and how it interacts with this transit, but what we know without doubt is that we will each step out of this period new people, changed, an absolutely transformed.
