This is an extra long Mars transit as it will turn retrograde in Gemini on October 30th, 2022 until January 12th, 2023.
During this transit, our inner warriors are determined to share information and to learn new curiosities, but in doing so we can be quite demanding of others. Mars in Gemini tends to intrude into other people’s privacy and to take over in friendships.
Gemini is a changeable but flirtatious and mostly light-hearted zodiac sign, always rushing from one interest to the next and always able to see both sides of every story, usually before breakfast. Since Mars is the planet of action and initiative, we are likely to be even more restless than normal during this transit, and it can be hard to find enough focus to actually finish anything – the appeal of the next new, shiny project is always hard to resist.
As an air sign, astrologers say Gemini is a natural learner and teacher, and when blended with the enthusiasm, passion and zing of Mars, this transit can be helpful for students or for those just starting a new qualification of any kind. Gemini energy doesn’t always stick around when the going gets tough, but Mars’ transit here adds determination and tenacity.
In astrology, Mars displays plenty of passion, but also plenty of anger. When this fiery planet transits Gemini, our urge to communicate can come across quite abruptly. There’s not a lot of tact here and we definitely tend to speak out of turn during Mars in Gemini. Fortunately, however, there is a lot of charm and humor in this mix, and the quick temper of Mars can be mitigated by the quick wit of Gemini.
Overall, the Mars in Gemini transit has a lot of potential. Its biggest challenge is that we must avoid scattering our energy too widely. With too many things on the go at once, even the sheer willpower of Mars will find it hard to keep up.
Aries Zodiac Sign (Aries Dates: March 20 – April 19) During Mars in Gemini
Mars transits your communication zone here, Aries, so it’s especially important to be tactful, respectful and kind. You’re likely to enjoy a lively and busy period during this transit, with lots of socializing and entertaining – but your infamous short temper is likely to be even more easily provoked than normal, Aries, so you may have to work hard to keep a cool head and a civil tongue.
Taurus Zodiac Sign (Taurus Dates: April 20 – May 20) During Mars in Gemini
Mars transits your money zone now, Taurus, which is usually a good sign. You’ll feel motivated to increase your income or to find side hustles in some form. You may have a challenge in curbing your spending, however, as this energy is easily distracted by pretty or interesting but ultimately unnecessary purchases. On the plus side, Taurus, an improved head for figures makes budgeting easier.
Gemini Zodiac Sign (Gemini Dates: May 21 – June 20) During Mars in Gemini
When Mars transits your own sign, your confidence and charisma are increased – but your sign is known for its restlessness and fickle nature, and these are magnified too. Try to ring the changes in your daily routine so that you don’t become bored. In a relationship, you may be taking flirting to Olympic levels, Gemini – be sure that your partner is comfortable with the way you’re behaving.
Cancer Zodiac Sign (Cancer Dates: June 21 – July 21) During Mars in Gemini
When Mars transits Gemini, Cancer, your spiritual nature is activated and you’re on a search for spiritual truth. It’s a good time for widening your religious and spiritual experiences – for example by investigating faiths other than your own. Keep an open mind and don’t be afraid to experiment or to try new things or meet new people. Your beliefs are not set in stone, Cancer, but that’s a good thing.
Leo Zodiac Sign (Leo Dates: July 22 – August 21) During Mars in Gemini
When Mars transits Gemini, Leo, your humanitarian instincts are triggered, and your always big heart will feel more than ever that you want to make a difference in the world. You’ll enjoy working with charities, taking part in fundraising events or perhaps raising money yourself for a special cause. This energy also helps you to see your long-term strategy clearly in terms of your life direction, Leo, so you can make any necessary adjustments.
Virgo Zodiac Sign (Virgo Dates: August 22 – September 21) During Mars in Gemini
During this transit, Virgo, Mars awakens your career zone and floods it with ambition. You won’t want to toe the line at work, however – this is a time to hone and develop your leadership abilities so that you can shine from the front instead of among the crowd. This is a good period for changing your career path, Virgo, if you so wish, as Mars brings you confidence in your own abilities and a can-do attitude towards big changes.
Libra Zodiac Sign (Libra Dates: September 22 – October 22) During Mars in Gemini
Mars is in your travel zone during this transit, Libra, so it’s ideal if you can get out and about, perhaps on vacation, perhaps for work, perhaps just exploring your local area on the weekends. You can learn a lot from new places and new faces, Libra, so don’t close your mind to the experiences of others. Looking into the customs, ethos, beliefs and systems of other cultures will prove very illuminating now.
Scorpio Zodiac Sign (Scorpio Dates: October 23 – November 21) During Mars in Gemini
This Mars transit activates your truth zone, Scorpio, but the problem with Mars in Gemini is that it never quite knows when to stop looking. Uncover secrets if you wish, but remember that once you know something, you cannot un-know it. Sometimes, you’ll wish you hadn’t started searching. Focus on revealing your own truths, Scorpio, rather than digging into the privacy of others.
Sagittarius Zodiac Sign (Sagittarius Dates: November 22 – December 20) During Mars in Gemini
Mars is in your love zone during this transit, Sagittarius, bringing plenty of passion and excitement to your love life. There’s a lot of fickle energy here too, however, and a lot of flirting, so don’t expect a brand-new relationship to necessarily last the course. In an established relationship, you may want to push the boundaries with one another, Sagittarius, or even with someone else – over to you, so long as you have consent!
Capricorn Zodiac Sign (Capricorn Dates: December 21 – January 18) During Mars in Gemini
This Mars transit helps you to get organized and to stay organized, Capricorn. With scattered thoughts but brilliant ideas clogging your mind, you’ll be driven to write things down, to plan, to brainstorm and to schedule. There’s so much going on in your brain, Capricorn, so getting it all out into some kind of plan will help you feel more settled – you’ll certainly sleep better, that’s for sure!
Aquarius Zodiac Sign (Aquarius Dates: January 19 – February 17) During Mars in Gemini
This Mars transit activates your creativity zone, Aquarius, which is also your fun zone – and with Gemini energy being fun-loving energy, it’s probably time to party. Expect to have a way with words, so you’ll benefit from creative writing of any kind. You’ll also love being around children or the younger generation, who can inspire and uplift you. Ultimately, Aquarius, this is a transit to enjoy, so make the most of it while it lasts.
Pisces Zodiac Sign (Pisces Dates: February 18 – March 19) During Mars in Gemini
When Mars is in Gemini, your family zone is activated with a burst of energy but also some potential arguments and disagreements, Pisces. Try not to stifle debate in your household – allow everyone to have their say if you want to keep the atmosphere as calm as possible. It’s a good time for having people round to your home, or for re-decorating in a light, airy fashion. Go give your mind more “space” to soar, Pisces.
