We’re just three weeks into a ten-week Mars Retrograde in Gemini and it’s a new niche of weird, right?
Note that Mars is already spending an extra-long time in Gemini but it doubles down on the mercurial weirding when it’s retrograde.
Have you recently radically flipped your modus-operandi regarding a specific factor? And not only that, you’re applying it with an unusually high degree of decisive, strategic action?
If you haven’t, you may want to check your location co-ordinates. You could be on another planet. Or, you’re so naturally up the yang with Mars potency that you pull this kind of stunt all the time.
The key to success with maverick Gemini Mars Retro ventures is nonchalance: if you’re grippy or too heavy with it, you lose momentum. Yes, this vibe favors the short attention spanners!
Remember, Mars Retro doesn’t rule out cool, creative action. It’s just not your go-to for fight-starting.
Another – less productive – indicator: phone fuqery and not the standard variety. I’m talking about password reset confirmations sent to the missing phone you’re trying to log in to report, messages from years ago suddenly landing afresh in your in-box and digital labyrinths.
And, the media itself serves as a strange oracle: articles and random soundbites or drop-quotes prompt reverie. A tiny tune sampling triggers a eureka flash but it’s forward-thinking or back – nothing feels ‘now’ at the moment, perhaps as it’s so sped-up and scattered.
Would you agree? Or are you keeping Retro-Mars fracas at a distance?
The FXR Crypto-Ponzi Is Classic Gemini Mars Terrain
More broadly, this Mars Retro has exposed the wackiest financial fracas on record: the crypto-ponzi run by the brilliantly named Sam Bankman Fried, a 30 year old Pisces with the Moon + Mercury in Aries and Venus, Lilith, Mars and Saturn conjunct in Aquarius.
Until the other day, he was a self-made billionaire – founder of the cryptocurrency exchange FTX – and media darling. Espousing ‘effective altruism’ and selflessly bailing out smaller crypto-companies, he was often seen on television and in panels hanging out with the likes of Tony Blair and co.
Now the billions are missing, allegedly transferred to either the Bahamas Government, his wildly eccentric Virgo girlfriend’s company or – from some accounts – his crazy lifestyle. He flamboyantly drove a Toyota Corolla to push the ‘not the normal billionaire’ vibe, whilst living in a 40 million apartment.
Bankman-Fried describes being ‘fake woke’ as one of his most profitable decisions, preferred his staff hyper-strung out on amphetamines and his story is presumably being optioned for a big-deal movie production as you read this. The
It’s too complicated to detail here but the Daily Mail actually has a bang-up summation of the weirdness. Arguably it’s part of the Pluto in Capricorn wind-down – a more garish version of the general tech malaise – but this tale is very Mars-Retro in Gemini.
How? It spins off in multiple directions like a manic hydra – the Bahamas government? – Tom and Gisele (divorced but being sued together for promoting the crypto biz) – Ukranian funding – and is going to generate a crazy string of classified intel between now and Mars Direct in Jan.
Currently, he’s in his Bahama’s penthouse, apparently being “monitored” by the government now accused of being in on the scam and his girlfriend – who may or may not have the money – could be anywhere.
The impact of the Ponzi is being reported as limited and contained within crypto but betcha by the time Mars has finished squaring Neptune this weekend, it will be admitted that it’s wider-spread. Thoughts?
