Astrological Highlights for the Week Ahead
Mars enters Gemini - 2021/03/03 - 2021/03/23
Mars is leaving patient and reliable 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 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 ) 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 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 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
Favourable activities under this transit:
Mental and social stimulation is pushed to the foreground when Mars is in an Air sign. Vacations, puzzles, games , new books, pen pals, gardening , spending time with birds and cloud gazing are all recommended.
If you have Mars in Gemini, or in an Air or Mutable sign you may feel this one a bit more

Last Quarter Moon in Sagittarius - 2021/03/05
The Last Quarter Moon phase points to rest and reflection which might clash with Sagittarius’ need to move 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 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 We would do well to remember that Mars has transitted in Gemini meaning our words have more power and we (and others around us) have the potential to snap more than usual.
The general mood of a Sagittarius moon however, is upbeat and jovial, and ideal for socialising 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 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 or an intensive yoga session perhaps?
Have a blessed week all
