Mars in Gemini and what it means for the world and the collective consciousness


Mars in gemini 2022,-2023, Mars retrograde in gemini 2022-2023

If you know a little about astrology already, then you know that Mars is a scary planet due to its association with war and conflict. But you might also know that Mars is more than just that.

It is a planet of defense and protection, of assertiveness, ambition, physical energy, and courage. If you want to get something done that requires all qualities above, you can count on planet Mars. Planet Mars can really strengthen an individual’s willpower.

Mars as the ruler of pioneering Aries, also indicates the possibility of fearless new beginnings.

Mars spends a long time in the sign of Gemini – a little over 7 months - because Mars will go through a retrograde phase. This transit began august 20th, 2022 and will end March 25th, 2023. The retrograde phase starts October 30th. A little spooky.


In Gemini, which rules communication, transportation, agreements between people, information technology, Mars is still a planet of action. And actions will speak louder than words.

Mars is indeed still a planet of war, of blasts and explosive nature, acting sometimes without thinking but in Gemini, the sign of logical thinking, planet Mars will become more strategic. Planet Saturn is also very helpful in this respect because it disciplines planet Mars. If you are on the defense, this transit will strengthen you.

What is interesting is that Mars is in a square to Neptune, planet of the sea. Remember the pipes of gas that exploded under the sea? Neptune also represents confusion and deception. It is still unclear who is behind this pretty serious environmental disaster and the increased distrust between western nations since everybody is a suspect.


The Mars retrograde phase will be an exhausting time for us mentally. People are on the defense but tricksters not the least.

If you want to know what people think, look at what they do, and not what they say. Neither should you jump to conclusions. Let the truth reveal itself. Eventually it will, if you can take a step back and look at the greater picture and allow all possibilities, even those that you do not want to face because of fear of what it might do to you or a certain relationship.

Mars retrograde in Gemini will be a great time to reflect and find mental stability. Watch your words but do not believe everything others say or promise. First, Neptune is deceptive, second, circumstances might not allow people to keep promises, because of the influence of Saturn.  

Will see people trying to avoid responsibility. They will gaslight you instead.

On the other hand, it is sometimes better to avoid a confrontation with someone and instead find another subtle way to make them pay attention.
