Gemini Mars April 21-June 3

We move from ‘grounded pleasure’ Toro Mars, into a ‘mental flutter’ Gemini Mars, but not without a momentary tinge of emotional discord from the (square) Moon (rising in Aquarius). While the discord won’t last long, he’s still going to need some extra special attention in this shift.
April 21 — June 3
We are leaving our cozy beds. Super-early, first thing in the morning, 3:32 am to be exact on Friday April 21st. We rub our eyes, and lean over to pull up our socks and tie our shoes. After breakfast and gently nudged off to school, we arrive. Our sleepy eyes dissipate, the room comes into focus. Our minds are filled with excitement to learn and to absorb. In complete awe and wonder of the knowledge potential, we begin to interact with the world. Mars makes his shift into Gemini, right in Gemini’s natural house — the 3rd house.
Sharing thoughts through our voice comes much easier, in ways that we have previously felt discomfort or blockages. Take this time to connect and communicate with yourself, and the world around you: friends, family (including pets!), clients, business partners and colleagues, alike. Be informational and resourceful in your exchanges. You’ll be surprised to find other people levelling with you, and open to wax intellectual. You’ll fact-check everything, and will conduct your own diligent research to confirm sources. Use this time to articulate your thoughts, clearly and fairly.
The Generative Force
Mars is known for aggression and war, but just as much, Mars is known for action, and challenge, he is a forward fighter. He generates! If you have felt stunted in your speech and in sharing what you want to say or do, Mars will be the catalyst for ease, and clarity in your efforts to get your point across, or to make something happen.
This is a time for healthy aggression, and breaking away from those who would normally dominate us, so that we may master the challenges thrown our way. Wherever Gemini Mars is operating in your birth chart, is where you will be able to manifest this energy.*
Like every planet, Mars can operate in two ways. Gemini Mars aggression expression can manifest through poor planning. Are your actions poorly thought out, where you go in enraged, and “half-cocked”? In this expression we ultimately trip over and stunt ourselves. We become our own demise (the Greek Mars). Alternatively,Gemini Mars aggression expression can manifest through principle, valor and with strength. Fertility toward with growth and with prosperity (the Roman Mars). It’s up to you, and how you wish to express; but do know, both options are equally available to you! You get out of Gemini Mars what you put into him.

Blend your Gemini Mars
Generate time to meditate. Meditation with Gemini Mars may seem counter intuitive, but it isn’t. Meditation strengthens the mind and the body, we become in alignment with our thoughts and body. By allowing thoughts to flow through, and not hanging onto any one thought — just observing the world around us, and not interacting, we become better equipped to express our thoughts in everyday life. Our mind becomes stronger. Make time to researching, to write, to blog, and to Journal. Pent up thoughts provoke a low Gemini Mars. The more that we keep the thought flow going and allow a space to house our thoughts, feelings, desires, the more likely they are to settle and rest, so we can move on and take “action” to what is most productive in a healthy mindset — this is high Gemini Mars!
Gemini Mars has energy potential just waiting to be actualized, whether though culminating or just getting started on something. Through travelling, through image, or even simply by having that conversation that you’ve been needing to have but have been putting off. Healthy discussions and debates are a great way to express your Mars, especially in Gemini, because you are most inclined to surround yourself with the necessary information to back up your thoughts and claims. The discussions become more logical and less emotional.
Venus Sextile Mars
Gemini Mars has Venus (in Pisces) in league with him as he crosses into this sign. Venus in sextile to Mars, still in her shadow-zone through May 17, soften the rougher edges of Mars. Venus infuses Gemini Mars with a need for harmony, balance and beauty. In his generating and challenging energy, she touches him emotionally with her magical Piscean aura. This is a good introduction into Gemini, before Venus moves into Aries. Aries is ruled by Mars, that would otherwise add a spark of fire to this transition. For now, we still have the soft splash of watery translucent influence. By the time Mars is nicely transitioned into Gemini at 5°, Venus will enter Aries on April 28 ~ adding some welcome oomph to this sextile.
