Want a Mars in Gemini woman to inspire you? Meet Ernestine Shepherd, the embodiment of this Mars sign’s brilliance at defying the weight of the years.
Ernestine Shepherd turns 77 next Sunday and is a competitive body-builder, marathon runner and trainer. She holds the Guinness record for the oldest female competitive body-builder and only began working out at the age of 56. Her second Saturn Return was good for this self-described “slug.” In true Saturn style, she says she was motivated by an “unpleasant experience shopping for swimsuits.”
She is a multiple conjunct Gemini: Sun, Mercury, Venus, Mars, and Chiron are all in Gemini – a lot by any count. She has not got an “easy” chart either. Saturn in Pisces, Jupiter in Saggo and Neptune in Virgo challenge her Gemini on a daily basis. She’s super-mutable.
Inspired? As a Mars in Gemini woman, she packs a lot of pow behind any whim. They are brilliant at flamboyant turning points and defying the usual ‘rules.’
