26 Oct Are You Sure About This? | Mars Retrograde In Gemini Horoscope
Has the pace of your life been starting to feel a bit slower and more manageable lately?
You may have noticed things speed up around August 20th when Mars entered the busy and curious sign of Gemini.
Ever since then, your interest in socializing and trying new things has been heightened which may have pulled your attention in multiple directions.
You’ve also likely felt more talkative and interested in things that stimulate your mind, connect you with others, and make you feel excited.
Well, things are about to shift gears.
Mars has been slowing down (from our perspective here on Earth,) and is about to go retrograde.
This means that the progress you’ve made over the last two months could come to a grinding halt.
And while this creates a great opportunity for taking a vacation, tying up loose ends, or revisiting a project that intrigues you, don’t expect to make strides on anything new right now.
Mars going retrograde in Gemini is kind of a big deal.
Unlike Mercury, which retrogrades three or four times a year, Mars only goes retrograde once every two years…
And its retrogrades last for MUCH longer.
The upcoming Mars Retrograde will run from October 30th to January 12th, but Mars won’t actually leave the sign of Gemini until March 2023.
On top of that, Mars hasn’t been retrograde in the sign of Gemini since 2007!
So what can you expect during this rare astrological event?
Let’s dive in and discover the energies that will be unfolding over the next few months.
The Power To Change Your Mind
Gemini is the most intelligent, adaptable and curious sign of the Zodiac.
It also has a reputation for changing its mind about anything and everything.
Gemini has a zero tolerance policy toward boredom, and if it’s not being stimulated enough, it has been known to stir up drama for the sake of entertainment.
The biggest motivations for Gemini are exploration, communication, and gathering knowledge.
This sign loves to socialize and know a little bit about everything.
So with Mars Retrograde in Gemini, the busy energy you’ve been experiencing since mid August will turn inward.
Starting October 30th you will enter a period of review, reflection, and re-envisioning how you express yourself and use your energy.
If you try to keep charging ahead right now you will only be met with frustration.
It will be more beneficial to reflect on your desires around communication, your attitude toward learning, and your appetite for trying new things.
Is there a new language or subject you started studying but then you got busy with other things?
Now is the perfect time to revisit it.
Is there a social event or activity you’ve been wanting to go to, but just haven’t found the time?
Maybe there’s someone you dismissed too quickly or a friendship you’ve neglected that you want to invest more energy into.
Mars Retrograde in Gemini is bringing you the opportunity to revisit areas of self-expression, knowledge, and connection that you didn’t prioritize the first time they were presented.
(On a practical side note – Mars rules over all forms of transportation. So if you’ve been waiting for car prices to drop before buying a vehicle, chances are high that the Mars Retrograde could cause car prices to plummet back to more reasonable levels.)
Right now you have the power to change your mind and refocus your energy on a more fulfilling, inspiring direction.
So embrace this cosmic pause and take the time you need to figure out what your next steps will be.
And keep in mind… if there has been significant conflict in your life over the past few months, chances are the Mars Retrograde could bring a resolution.
What Goes Around Comes Around
Whenever cruel words are spoken in the heat of the moment, it can lead to regret.
And under the influence of Mars in Gemini, words have been the weapon of choice.
Not only have we been more prone to express anger and frustrations verbally, Mars in Gemini is infamous for spreading gossip.
While Mars is Retrograde in Gemini, we could see repercussions for saying things that would have been better left unspoken.
The truth can never stay hidden long.
So people who have been two-faced and deceptive toward others will be exposed.
And those who have tried to make themselves look better by talking badly about someone else, or have simply gossiped out of boredom may feel the sting of regret.
One purpose of the Mars Retrograde in Gemini is to help you see mistakes in how you’ve communicated so you can express yourself more maturely.
On the flipside, if you’ve been biting your tongue and keeping yourself from telling someone how you really feel, the Mars Retrograde will compel you to get everything out into the open so you can move forward.
Maybe you’ve pretended to like something to spare someone else’s feelings or fit in.
If this is the case, the Mars Retrograde will help you clear the air and focus on what really matters to you.
What You Need To Keep Going
During the Mars Retrograde in Gemini, you could feel like you’re taking two steps back instead of moving forward.
But there is a divine purpose in this.
Now is the perfect time to take stock of how you use your energy and express yourself.
Chances are there will be positive adjustments you can make over the coming months.
And once you do, you will be that much more prepared to move in a direction that truly brings you joy.
So take a breath, let yourself slow down, and enjoy this time of reflection.
P.S. Do you feel like you need a change in direction? Are you yearning to pursue a missed connection? Let me know in the comments below. I look forward to hearing from you!

Dear Jonathan. I am in great need of advice about the direction I need to be taking. I am currently wondering what it’s all about…. I am not happy at work, my live life is non-existent and I have little to look forward to. I’m a sagittarius and usually pretty upbeat, but I am struggling right now. Thank you 🙏x

Mars being my ruling planet I am feeling the Mars in Gemini and the Rx coming will be grand. I have been on the receiving end of major betrayal from. a gang of people taking pleasure in gossiping about me after a coaching experience with someone got me banned from attending a public event. Now I am bracing to heal from the smear campaign some take pleasure at spreading unfounded rumors to destroy my reputation and boasting their ego.

I was in what I thought was a serious relationship and I don’t if it was because he’s a Scorpio or as he said, his feelings for me were crazy and he got scared, whatever. He would drop out of contact for ages and then suddenly contact me again with some excuse and it drove me mad. A 1000 bad scenarios going thru my head. Then we didn’t speak for like 6 weeks and I had finally had enough. I stopped contacting him completely. I didn’t hear from him at all. Now he’s back and I discovered he got a one night stand pregnant. I was destroyed. But. We both can’t just walk away and leave it like this. I guess what I’m asking is, can we make it work again. It was going so painstaking slow. And it seems to be the case the second time around and part of me wants to accept it won’t go the way is want and move on but my heart wants to be with him and be patient and supportive and hope for then best. Do you have any advice for me?

Gemini is NOT the most intelligent sign and I defy you or anybody else to find any ancient astrological text asserting that notion. Having a mind that cannot slow down, moves in every direction simultaneously, (whilst rarely committing to any one of them),and delves into to surface of many subjects rather than deeply knowing any of them could never make you the most anything other than anxious and/or sleep deprived. Gemini is “ jack of all trades master of none” and while this makes for an interesting if hyper-talkative and deceptive personality that can change its mind & commitment to an ideal or person in a flash by convincing itself of the value of its own (usually selfish/self-centered) reasons for doing so) this over activity & superficiality are are apt to make a person the most likely to win a game of trivial pursuit than to be the most intelligent.
Any strong Scorpio placement is mentall very intelligent strengthened with depth perception and emotions-based intuition. Capricorn gives a fine strong mind and for those who love reductionist and nihilistic life views the Virgo intellect is the one you seek, and of course Aquarius is the sign of genius combining the fine mind gained in Capricorn with mental intuition. Gemini is the 3rd sign representing the puer/child who’s mind is all over the place like a4 or 5 year old whereas Taurus (2nd) sign represents the infant who experiences the bounty of love from parents and those who dote on infants as well as discovering tasty food, joys of being cared for etc. Venus rules Taurus so we expect that & Mercury rules the Twins who cannot make up their mind, never want to grow up and always feel they a more clever than others because while you are believing the words they left you with they are free to go do something else. Think of thinking the same way you think of sunlight; diffuse it is everywhere and has no great effect but focused through a magnifying glass it’s powerful.
( and NO I’ve never had a romantic love relationship with a Gemini and my parents weren’t Gemini either.) I get a lot of emails from you Luna but calling Gemini “the most intelligent “ will never do unless you’re reinventing astrology and want to call Keo the most bashful @ self-sacrificing or Pisces the least likely to drink alcohol/do drugs etc.

I am with the knowledge there is more for me and my Twin flame to learn about ourselves, to explore, become more emotionally intelligent and aware, I only hope and pray we will become one and our connection will not be lost. It has been a long, bumpy, lonely, painful journey already.
