Transit Mars in Gemini March 3 – April 23, 2021

As Mars exits slow, deliberate Taurus and enters quick-minded Gemini on March 3, time itself may seem to speed up. Mars highlights, activates, and stirs the pot. In Gemini, Mars is in the realm of information, language, and logic. Gemini is the most flexible, adaptable, and versatile of the three social air signs. Gemini is the realm of the everyday– neighbors, coworkers, siblings, relatives, and others in your orbit. 

Mars in Gemini activates an urge to talk, get your point across, be heard. But you’ll get the most valuable and actionable information if you sit back and listen to the ideas and activities swirling around us during this 7-week period.

Mars in Gemini at work

  • Workflow is quick-paced, snappy, detail-oriented, with many little tasks and errands. 
  • It’s a busy time. You may have at least 2 different irons in the fire, requiring you to be flexible and multitask.
  • Quick bursts of activity, with a high possibility of a last-minute scramble to a deadline.
  • A great time to study, learn, and explore new ideas.

Mars in Gemini in close relationships

  • With the action vibe in a changeable, unsettled place, your impulses may take you in a number of directions.
  • If this is you, try meditation, binaural beats, or other techniques to settle your mind.
  • Choose your words carefully. We’re all a little fragile now, and sharp words can injure.
  • We all feel like talking and chatting more when Mars is in Gemini– but we get what we need when we listen.
