Mars in Gemini in Your Birth Chart

Mars Gemini guys and gals are hyper, distracted and grow animated during arguments. They're witty and edgy, a combo that makes them at times snarky or cutting with words.

I knew one who couldn't talk to you without doing something else. Like you had to walk alongside and carry on the conversation, while he did something else. And he was a classic Gemini lover who craves variety, with a lot of what he called gal pals and friends on social media.

Many with this placement have a split focus and might enjoy, say, exercising, while listening to informative radio.

Gemini's ruler is Mercury, and that's a clue to how you use words actively (with Mars). So check your Mercury sign — this is how you deliver the Mars impulse.

Speedy Gonzales 

Gemini is mutable, and that means quick changes and doing many things at once. Mars Gemini thrives in high-paced situations with a lot of coming and going. They are bored easily and can go mad in a routine that's the same day in, day out. 

The pace of Mars in Gemini is head-spinningly fast. You move in a zig-zag path, often dropping one thing to pick up where you left off with another. Having loose ends doesn’t bother you since you know you’ll come ‘round to it again eventually.

You like variety, and thus enjoy juggling many projects at the same time. You are motivated by ideas and may keep the tv or radio going as a stream of inspiration. You’re flexible with the process of getting from A to B and open to altering course when new info comes in.

A failing here though is bringing things to completion. If you've lost interest, it's super hard for you to tough it out and see it through, without rolling your eyes the whole time. 

Sexy Minds 

You’re drawn to passions that catch the attention of your curious mind. And bright minds to you are an aphrodisiac. But yours is a Mars that's restless for stimulation, and this makes you emotionally fickle.

You’re attracted to witty, eclectic personalities that don’t want to envelop you in heavy emotion. The breathless dandy or waif that's just a whirl of excitement is your ideal. 

You have a kinky side, because of your tendency to be once removed, detached as if observing from a distance. This is alarming to more sensitive or grounded types, who sense you're not all there. If you play to "type," you're a verbal lover who likes pillow talk or to talk dirty. An extreme is someone who is satisfied with phone sex, even if it never goes further. 

Along with lovers, you usually have a whole network of contacts, and consider lovers as friends, too. That can lead to a situation where you've got lots of friends with benefits, but nothing hits those notes of intimacy. 

As always, though, much will depend on the rest of your birth chart, which can balance out these very Gemini tendencies.

Sampling Life's Banquet

If it sparkles, you want to grab it. You loathe repetition in your daily routine, and may have more than one “job.” You love to try new hobbies or games, especially if they’re social and challenge the mind. You may end up having dexterity in many skills, but find it harder to achieve mastery. No matter, you’re just out to learn and experience whatever life brings.

You may change careers many times, and with Mars in an air element, your activities could be to do with ideation — media, entertainment, fashion, etc. You like being in the currents of the times, like news, what's trendy, novel and cutting edge.

You enjoy taking off with friends for a day trip or enrolling in a sketch class with your inner circle. You’re here to sample life in an experiential way. You don’t like to be tied down since you’ve got to stay on the move!
