Mars in Gemini – How to Manage the Intensity

Mars Entering Sign of Gemini

Normally, Mars transits each sign for roughly two months but not this August where the planet of decisive action — moves into inquisitive Gemini. This combination may make the next seven months feel a little restless. Yes, you read that correctly – seven months. Mars will enter sociable Gemini starting August 20, 2022 until March 25, 2023. While Mars in Gemini hypes up our minds – our mouths may also just run away from us.

Mars starts to lose focus and drive when in airy Gemini but remains resourceful during this transit. This may intensify scattered ways of being and thinking, but may also allow us to reckon and handle what we may have no previously had words for. It’s an excellent time to diversify our interests and develop new strategies. We may also see an uptick in social aggression.

What to Expect During Mars Transit Gemini

Gemini is the sign of communication and movement, and Mars is the planet of action and energy. During this period, our tactical skills are being highlighted. We’re capable of navigating through complicated situations, so long as we don’t spread ourselves too thin. We may also be inspired to take action on long-awaited goals, bearing in mind to think before we speak. This boost in energy also gives us the gift of charm and may allow you to swing your way into places you have never been.
