WC 1st March - Mars enters Gemini & Last Quarter Moon in Sagittarius

Astrological Highlights for the Week Ahead

Mars :red_circle: enters Gemini :gemini: - 2021/03/03 - 2021/03/23

Mars is leaving patient and reliable Taurus :taurus: to set up camp in playful and witty Gemini until 23rd April - this is a particularly powerful astrological transit!

Things to be conscious of under this Transit:

  • In Gemini, Mars is versatile and flexible but not especially determined or focused. Don’t bite off more than you can chew during this time - we are vulnerable to becoming a bit scattered :upside_down_face: so finding balance is key! This is a great time for diversifying our interests and understanding the power of our communications.
  • Mars (The God of War :warning:) moving into the Airy and energetic sign of Gemini, means that words will have power and force to them. Be careful not to pop off on others and take their impulsive emotional responses with a grain of salt. Think before you speak to avoid conflict :speaking_head: We’re resourceful and clever and we have the potential to use words effectively.
  • Mars in an Air sign brings movement, travel, and social connectivity. We will more feel spontaneous, curious, and extroverted. It’s an excellent time for strategizing and devising useful tactics to achieve our desires and goals :soccer: since Mars shapes our drive and ambition.
  • Last but not least - Mars is all about our animal instints and carnal desires so when he heads into Gemini, the sign that loves banter and intellegical stimulation, things can get rather steamy! Expect some ultra flirty vibes and mental foreplay to take center stage in your love life :heart:

Favourable activities under this transit:

Mental and social stimulation is pushed to the foreground when Mars is in an Air :dash: sign. Vacations, puzzles, games :game_die:, new books, pen pals, gardening :bouquet:, spending time with birds and cloud gazing :cloud: are all recommended.

For extra information, take a look at where Mars sits in your natal chart - and what this means for you

If you have Mars in Gemini, or in an Air or Mutable sign you may feel this one a bit more :slight_smile:

For all you crystal lovers :large_blue_diamond: out there, here’s a few Mars-loving crystals:

-Red Jasper (nurturing, balancing, self worth)
-Fire Agate (Creative and sexual energy)
-Sun stone (Vitality, joy, self confidence)
-Carnelian (Confidence, courage)
-Citrine (Energising, boosts optimism)

Last Quarter Moon :last_quarter_moon: in Sagittarius :sagittarius: - 2021/03/05

The Last Quarter Moon phase points to rest and reflection :relieved: which might clash with Sagittarius’ need to move :bangbang: You may find you get restless if you’re bogged down with mundane chores. If you’ve really got to take care of everyday business, it’ll flow better if you listen to some stimulating talks or music :musical_note: while doing the task at hand.

The truth flows more freely when the moon is in Sagittarius and can sometimes come out with blunt force :loudspeaker: We would do well to remember that Mars has transitted in Gemini meaning our words have more power :right_anger_bubble: and we (and others around us) have the potential to snap more than usual.

The general mood of a Sagittarius moon :sparkles: however, is upbeat and jovial, and ideal for socialising :dancer: :dancer: in the real world - sadly with covid restraints a lot of socialising might not be possible where you are! There’s a rush of fire element-inspired physical vitality :fire: and this can help you out of any funk of inertia! This is a good sign for physical activity, however, during this moon phase it may be best to channel that energy through a softer form of exercise - a brisk walk in nature :walking_woman: or an intensive yoga session :person_in_lotus_position: perhaps?

Have a blessed week all :bouquet:


Sounds like a good time for journaling and chanting! :mage:
Thanks @Abs53 Abs for the useful tips and the resources you linked!


Thank you @Abs53


There is so much great information here- I love that you walk us through the events, their meanings, and also all of your wise advice @Abs53! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: Thanks so much for putting this together- I really love reading your astrological updates! :sparkles:


Thank you @Abs53! I’m going to get out my birth chart for this one and see where my planets and houses lie for this transition. I had never thought of looking into the correlation before. I’m trying to learn about the different aspects and as far as I’ve gotten is my sun, moon, and rising signs. So I am trying to learn how those signs affect my personality and such. I like the explanations in these posts. I refer back to them to see what is going on in the skies.

I’m still learning how the rising signs affect the rest of them. I understand the sun & moon signs but the rising signs have me stumped a little bit. :smile:

I feel the same way as the @TheTravelWitch I appreciate the walk-through and advice with them.


I’m back, but I found where Mars lies in my chart and I it was very interesting to read what that means for me. Thank you for the link @Abs53. This is what is says for my Mars in Leo.

"This position of Mars gives a drive for significance. Mars in Leo individuals possess a strong need to create in some way and they are determined that their lives have not only meaning, but significant meaning!

This is a particularly vital position of Mars. Passions run high, and so does desire. There is a strong will that gives these natives much staying power. Though Mars in Leo people will enjoy the pleasures of risk-taking, they generally have a strong sense of reason at the end of the day."

I followed the link provided in the original post. I’m going to spend today really learning about my chart and what makes me tick :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:


Thank you! I love astrology but I still have to look up everything for each little aspect, it’s nice to see a generalized outlook for the upcoming week.
My mars is in Gemini in the 11th house in my natal chart so thanks for the warning about watching what i say.
I’m so grateful for the warmer weather where i live, tomorrow i plan to plant some flowers, i decided that today out of nowhere which is a bit unusual for me. (Libra indecisiveness) i can understand that a bit more now, its the fire element.
