Mars retrograde in Gemini – recap

Mars is the planet of action and energy, and when it goes into retrograde, its effects can affect action, assertiveness, ambition and motivation. In Mercury-ruled Gemini, this Mars retrograde may have led to confusion and indecision, as Gemini is a sign that is associated with communication and changeability.

Mars likes to get into action fast, and all this back and forth and lack of ability to move forward or make definitive decisions could have definitely brought frustration and short tempers to the house in your natal chart with Gemini on the cusp. You can read a little about Mars retrograde in Gemini through the houses here, although you should definitely know by now where the delays and irritation caused by this aspect were coming from.

Some important dates concerning Mars retrograde in Gemini

  • August 21, 2022 – Mars entered Gemini

  • October 30, 2022 – Mars stationed retrograde at 25 degrees 37 of Gemini

  • January 12, 2023 – Mars is stationing direct at 8 degrees 8 of Gemini

  • March 26, 2023 – Mars is moving into Cancer

Mars in Cancer has it’s own challenges I’ll take about later, but the main thing to keep in mind is that all of the energy, focus and sometimes frustration and anger brought about by Mars living forever in the house with Gemini on the cusp in your chart will come to a close.

Mars was last at 8 degrees 8 of Gemini on September 4, 2022, so whatever Mars-related topics around action, assertiveness, ambition and motivation that came up from this time to around October 26, 2022 will be revisited as Mars moves through these degrees one more time between January 12 to March 17. Take what you learned during the retrograde period and expect less hurdles, delays and (annoying) miscommunications now that the planet is direct once more.
