Mars in Gemini Horoscopes – August 20, 2022
On August 20th, Mars — the planet of decisive action — moves into inquisitive Gemini. When Mars is in this sign, there’s a buzzing desire to share, learn, and verbally spar. It amplifies the push and pull between defending our beliefs and working toward consensus. As a result, you may notice curiosity is at an all-time high, communication is even more rapid or divisive than usual, or misinformation unspools at a dizzying speed.
This moment is a big one because Mars will be in the sign of Gemini for seven months (until March 25th, 2023, to be exact). The reason Mars will spend so long in Gemini is that the planet will be retrograde from October 30th, 2022, to January 12th, 2023. For context, Mars normally takes one to two months to speed through a sign — but this year, our rowdy BnB guest decided to extend their stay.
Mars in Gemini pushes us to reckon with what we might not normally have words for, and it equips us with the language to name it all — sharply, without a politeness filter. This can be both constructive and destructive. So be mindful of how you wield this sword over the next seven months.
When Mars enters the sign of the twins on August 20th, it marks the beginning of a reframe. A time to rewire our relationship to anger, courage, and treating others fairly, even as we speak our minds.
