MARS FINALLY gets a MOVE ON!
So Mars is spending an unusually long time in Gemini, from August 21st, 2022 till March 23rd, 2023. Where the most direct, aggressive planet of machismo, libido, ambition, assertive confidence, anger & conflict vibes more complex. For example:
We have so many desires and plans we don't know where to direct our energy. We are skilfully multi-tasking, juggling every aspect of our scenario with magician genius. We understand the subtle nuance of seducing our lover, or sexual entanglements generally. We are fascinating, and fascinated by the kaleidoscopic possibilities around us. We are delightfully charming, curious and ok, crafty communicators. We deftly avoid conflict, finding clever, peaceful solutions instead. Or ok, dance around playing headfuq games with one another, just for kicks.
Either way we understand that brute force, or even blind determination doesn't work so well, so we necessarily play with a more intelligent approach to getting what we want, right?
So it's been kind of a gift to have Mars retrograde since Nov 1st 2022... to slow us down whether we like it or not. Some of us have felt an innate intelligence, to retreat & work on replenishing our energy/scheme our next big move, dark horse style. Some of us have just been gnashing our teeth in frustration, at the constant obstacles cramping our style-grrrr! Probably a bit of both, for most of us?
Especially men, ruled by Mars. Dudes have tended to be quite elusive recently. Maybe flirty but can't commit, or disappear to chase butterflies, work on their thesis, try to get more healthy or whatever... And as frustrating as we have found some men in our lives; they're like hey, spend a moment in my head right now, I feel so thwarted & frustrated I don't know what the fuq to do!
Hallelujah, Mars now officially moving direct again, from Friday 13th! We all feel a rush of renewed energy, physical vitality, personal confidence, determination to thrive and sexy libido turning us on.
So just for fun, here is an inspiring little riff; where you suddenly feel positive momentum for your sign. I have listed according to your Sun Sign, but if you know your Rising/Ascendant Sign is even more relevant:
