Mars , the initiator, brings a sense of urgency and motivation wherever it goes. In the sign of Gemini, a sign of intellect, agility and curiosity, we will be filled with exciting new ideas, as well as the enthusiasm to put them into action.
Gemini is the sign of adaptability and versatility, and here Mars finds it difficult to be bored. There are so many new things to try and explore — so much so that instead, it may even be difficult for Mars to put its energy into just one thing.
Focus isn’t Gemini’s strong suit, for it prefers to diversify its experiences and taste a little bit of everything. When applied to the planet of action, this means that the Mars in Gemini transit is a time that supports exploration and discovery. It is about experiencing as much as we can to find out what truly excites us, before we go deeper, work harder or commit.
With that in mind, the Mars in Gemini transit can gift you with a sense of flexibility, and openness to what life brings you. With so many options, if something doesn’t work out, you likely will be able to have backup plans available to you.
Just be careful that you don’t leave too many things unfinished. Whether its romantic interests (since Mars is also the planet of sex), or your own personal or professional goals, it may not be in your best interests long term to quickly abandon things without tying up loose ends.
Gemini can be a bit scattered, and when natal Mars is in this sign, we see this trait in the native’s personality as well. People with this placement may be easily bored and unfocused. They tend to be at their very best when there is constant stimulation, where there is a flood of information to absorb and process. Where some of the more introverted placements may feel overwhelmed, natal Mars in Gemini is excited and energized.
Nothing escapes Mars in Gemini’s attention. They are agile at absorbing their environment and making use of all the information that they learn.
When it comes to expressing their anger, this is where Gemini’s innate talent for language can become fearsome. As Gemini is generally a talkative type, this trait only becomes more obvious when there is the force of emotion and drive behind it. When upset, their quick thinking allows them to win debates, throw sharp and painful insults, or simply ramble until they have said all they needed to say.
When it comes to sex and romance, natal Mars in Gemini is going to have a hard time committing. They are often adept when it comes to the dating, but settling into a routine can be terrifying for them.
