Your Horoscope for Gemini
Just be careful about decisions you make at the volatile November 8 eclipse, a time you need to treat things like you would nitroglycerine. Don’t be overly aggressive, but rather stop and think before you say or do anything. The rule with this, or any lunar eclipse, is not to initiate an action, but you can RESPOND to another person’s action. That bears repeating: do not initiate, but rather respond. In the meantime, see if you can hire help to reduce the stress on you, or take mini-breaks or weekend getaways now and then. I need you to pace yourself because you will have many weeks to go before Mars leaves Gemini on March 25. Remember, though, YOU have the ultimate control, even at times when it doesn’t feel that way!
Mars is still currently in Gemini, a place Mars entered on August 20, and late last month, on October 30, Mars started to retrograde and retrace his steps. Mars will stay in Gemini, not slipping into any other sign during the retrograde, and will go direct in Gemini on January 12. Mars will remain in Gemini until March 25, 2023.
This trend has both an upside and downside. The downside is that you may feel exhausted from all the stimulus around you—there is a lot going on. If you were born with Uranus in Gemini (August 1941-June 1949), Virgo (November 1961-June 1969), or Sagittarius (February 1981-December 1988) (these are approximate dates for at times Uranus retrograded in and out), then you would feel this trend of Mars more sharply. If you feel tense over a situation possibly related to the eclipse, you may feel like you have both hands in electrical sockets—but this is all temporary.
Keep in mind that there is a big plus side to this period. You are a Gemini (or have it rising, and that is equal in importance), so with Mars in Gemini, you have the ultimate control over events. You will be passionate, determined, courageous—all qualities of warrior Mars. You won’t shy away from conflict, you will move toward it. Mars just went retrograde, so if you are dealing with a matter that is stressful, it will take time to sort out. You won’t make rapid progress, and this may be frustrating, but realize you will start to see progress by late January. (Mars needs time to ramp up after going direct on January 12.) The entire matter may not be finished until late February or until Mars leaves Gemini on March 25. It’s hard to tell.
