Since January 6th, Mars has been in Taurus and in a tough square with the two largest planets in our solar system – Jupiter, Saturn. Mars was also square with Mercury which was in retrograde through Aquarius for the majority of February and created all sorts of havoc and mental confusion. However, Mars is about to get a breath of fresh air and break free from Taurus’ restrictive chains as it moves into the sign of communication and messages – Gemini. Now that the planet of action is in the sign of the Twins, it forms a free flowing and harmonious trine with all the planets in Air signs, making things feel a whole lot lighter.
Do not get too excited though because even though Mars is trine Mercury, Jupiter, and Saturn, it is squaring the current Pisces stellium – Venus at 7°, the MC at 6°, the Sun at 13°, and Neptune at 20°. This can cause conversations concerning relationships a bit of distress. Right now, talk is cheap. Mars is persuasive and passionate while Gemini is talkative and witty giving the possibility of this transit to bring out the fast-talking charlatans and devil’s advocates who want to argue for argument’s sake.
