Feel Passionate and Energetic When Mars Enters Gemini

Posted on April 20, 2017

If any of the retrogrades this month have been getting you down, take a big breath, and relax. Then, prepare to tap into some energy reserves over the coming weeks, as life in slow motion is about to come to a screeching halt and go full steam ahead in multiple directions at once.

On April 21, warrior Mars enters the air sign of Gemini. This is the best of both worlds when it comes to energy. And unfortunately, it’s like enabling Jekyll and Hyde with a full forced army. So let’s talk about that today, and how to embrace the passionate energy while staying grounded when Mars enters Gemini.

Mars in Gemini – Jekyll and Hyde Get an Army

Gemini gets a bad rap, so does Mars sometimes. So today we are going to talk about how to stay grounded when gale-force winds blow into every area of your life, all at once, with warrior energy. That’s the best analogy of Mars in Gemini. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Life has been slow for a while with Mercury retrograde, Venus retrograde, Pluto retrograde, Jupiter retrograde, and Saturn retrograde. Intense, but slow.

The warrior-like and energetic transit of Mars in Gemini arrives on April 21 and lasts until June 4. Finally! You have the energy you have to move forward on a few things. Unfortunately, you will also have energy that wants you to move forward on everything all at once. This just isn’t physically possible, even if you want it to be. There will be frustrations.

In this transit, we have the passionate warrior planet Mars who does not let anything or anyone get in his way, for anything. This planet will enter Gemini, the mutable sign who, on a good and even on a slow day, is going in multiple directions at once. Gemini is symbolized by the Twins for that reason and is often compared to Jekyll and Hyde. With Gemini, you often do not know what you are going to get.

Gemini is often all over the place, very easily distracted, and it makes it difficult to focus. So imagine the energy that arrives when the warrior planet enters the most distracted sign. It sounds like chaos, it can be, but you can also get a lot done. All you need is some tips on how to stay focused and grounded and stick to your mission. We’re going to get on that in a minute.

The Good, the Bad, and the Sometimes Ugly

One good thing about Mars in Gemini is that the driven and focused energy of Mars is scattered a little bit. So Jekyll and Hyde definitely get an army, but their mission statement is a little bit unclear. This is only a bad thing if you are sending out your troops without a plan. That’s when it can get ugly.

There are also some beautiful things to be had here. Having a lot of energy after the slow month we have had is a wonderful thing. With Mars energy being a little more mutable and flexible now, you can now disperse some of that energy into different places, without worrying about everything all at once. Gemini can be a little bit reckless, so you have to keep an eye on where you are putting your energy.

Mars in Gemini transits are going to produce more car accidents, road rage, tiny little mishaps, and sometimes big mishaps if you are letting your temper control your day. That’s the bad and the ugly of this transit. The good is that Gemini is very intelligent, a quick thinker, and very charming. As quickly as you may come across the odd mishap, will be as quickly as you can get out of it as well.

Find Balance and Focus With Root Chakra Exercises

With all of this energy that is very unfocused, you are going to have some days until June where you feel like you are pulling your hair out. Keep reminding yourself that you don’t need to be the warrior all day, every day. The best way to ground yourself physically, spiritually, and emotionally is with root chakra exercises.

The root chakra is that imaginary spinning wheel of energy at the base of your spine that spins energy to this part of your body. The purpose of the root chakra is to help you feel grounded and secure and rooted in your everyday life. When you don’t feel grounded and rooted, your root chakra is out of balance.

You’re not going to feel very grounded and rooted with Mars in Gemini, even if you are Deepak Chopra. It’s called being human. So here are some very simple root chakra exercises to keep on hand that anybody can do, that don’t cost you a thing.

  • Use the power color red to your advantage. Red is the color of Mars, and also for the root chakra. Meditate on this color for a few minutes when you are feeling a little scattered. You will discover where you need to put your focus. That’s right, this is one time where ‘seeing red’ actually works in your favor! See it within yourself, instead of when out dealing with people in the world.
  • Use up that energy in a way that means nothing. This is one of those that ’ dance when nobody is watching’ kind of moments. Brun off steam. Let those arms and legs flail because nobody cares what you look like. Blast music, and just burn it off. When you are done, you will have a vision on your next task or warrior mission. Taking a long walk is also a great idea if you aren’t really keen on this step.
  • Shower. That’s right, take a shower, NOT a bath. Showering is a popular root chakra exercise because the energy of the water flowing down on you helps you to wash away all of the negative or oversized energy packs you are feeling. You just can’t get that same effect in a bath. Long baths are great heart chakra exercises. When you have warrior energy you don’t know what to do with or where to put, shower it off.


Both Mars and Gemini get a bad rap sometimes. Many people freak out when Mars enters Gemini for that reason. It is definitely a double whammy from the Universe. Although, that doesn’t mean that it’s a bad thing. Life has been in the slow lane with all of this retrograde energy.

With Mars in Gemini, take life up a notch and do something with that energy in the fast lane, use that determination to to get stuff done. When the fast-paced, passionate energy gets to be too much, engage those root chakra exercises.
