Club Gemini

Club Gemini is about to reopen. You remember it, right? That cool place with the sonic atmospherics where they never remember your name but vividly recall a 2 am anecdote you regaled them with.

Selective memory has many advantages, and the club has perfected techniques that were previously only known to a tightly-knit group of luminaries. They know nothing but everything about you and assume that if you’ve gravitated there, you’re probably their genre.

The decor is naturally mutable – everything changes on a whim – but it’s currently Venn diagrams and geometric philosophy. The club’s regular patrons appreciate the referential layers beneath so-called impulse.

All of the music is an experimental ensemble or “we’re not sure if we’re going to release it yet.” At Club Gemini, every day is an emerging act and the next big production is eagerly anticipated: Seven And A Half Months Of Mars In Gemini.

What a lovely post Mystic
I feel ‘seen’.

Geminian

I’m a triple Gem with a photographic rather than selective memory. Sometimes it scares people when I offer details on things that happened way back when, even when I was four years old. Be interesting to see what Mars lobbs into the arena of past things. Might need to revisit some Proust and make random philosophical statements at will for the next six months, except that I tend to do that anyway…

Seven and a half months of Mars in Gemini.
Iโ€™m really interested in knowing more about how I can work with this energy.
Does the fact that (planet) Mars is in (the sign of) Gemini mean that the area of my birth chart where I have Gemini is going to be energised by Mars?

Tetrahedron

If you have planets or angles in Mutable signs you can expect the effects of this period to be amplified. Mars in Gemini must be about intellectual stimulation, basically, but leaving things to simmer for too long. It should intensive any intellectual tendencies. I believe when Mars transits my 3rd house Gemini Moon, it might make me whiz through all sorts of things/communications and simply go through things too quickly. Short-distance travel could come into play unless there’s an aspect to the 9th house. I might have a decrease in income. I’m going to avoid meeting people when the conjunction… Read more »

Wow, ok. Gemini rules my 12th house and I have Venus and Uranus there..
had better look out for upheaving my whole world for a long lost love.

Here to start the party guys!!! After 9 long years, we finally have a (slightly) more progressive government with our Labor (‘workers’) party, sprinkled with Greens and Independent candidates (mostly smart women). It actually feels like a heavy weight on my shoulders has lifted for the first time since Rabid Tony got in in 2013. WHEWWWW…

Current mood: Celebration by Kool and the gang  ๐ŸŽ‰ ๐ŸŽ‰ Let’s PARTAY!!

Earthstar

Yr soo right Gemyogi, and without wanting to do a mega (unqualified further than being an average voter) political analysis, this country needs so much healing!! And who better for it than water signs..? Is it any coincidence that our new PM is a Sun Pisces, his Finance minister (Katy Gallagher) is also a sun Piscean, his Foreign Affairs minister and all-round legend Penny Wong is a sun Scorp, and his deputy Richard Marles is a sun Cancer..? I don’t know a lot about anything, but I do think the water element is striking.. โœŒ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿ’™

Nooooo that’s uncanny!

Earthstar

Curiously but slightly tangentially – Antony Green, our amazing election night psephologist and a maths/computer sci graduate, is ALSO born on 02 March (as are Albanese and Chalmers). Am not sure if the Piscean chart (esp. the 10-11ยฐ point) was being activated on election eve, but I know any Gemini weather squares it (I have my Gemini moon exact square my Mars-Mc in Pisces, which is how I am aware, ha). Interesting times !โ˜บ

Aqualeo

I didn’t know this. It’s wonderful. I can feel the healing compassionate vibes already. WHAT a relief! I think I heard the whole country sigh yesterday…

Ah Aqualeo, I hope it all gets better somehow. All of it. Like aliens land and charge the global frequency to Full Rainbow Angel Discos..?๐Ÿ˜… This is the most detached I’ve ever been through a federal election, and while I don’t want to use the c-word (the worst one – Cynical, gasp ๐Ÿ˜ฑ..!), if I were to describe my current self as a stew, I’d say 2 cups life purge, 3 parts house reno hard labour, and the whole spice bottle of Boring Cynic. To watch the previous government go inspired the same lack of emotion as all the stuff… Read more »

(And i am cross with myself for feeling cynical. It is usually transient for me, like having a cold or feeling stone-tired. But it’s such a self-indulgent state of play. Back to “normal?” programming soon.. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ)

Earthstar

Just realised Dr Helen Haines (Independent) and Dr Adam Bandt (Greens) are also on the all-important cross-bench, as well as being Pisceans with PhD’s. I wonder if this (hard-won) recognition at long last is partially because Jupiter just conjuncted all their suns..? (Note to self: Jupiter is about to conjunct my own sun at the end of May, so better put the ph down & keep moving!!๐ŸŒž)

Aqualeo

Yet ANOTHER Piscean in the mix. Get ready for a big changing of the guard. People who care. Earthstar get ready to throw your cynicism in the skip and hallelujah on out of there. xx

Earthstar

Am just looking forward to the return of nuance to the political dialogue, Aqualeo – lol. ๐Ÿ˜„ And maybe, just maybe (especially given the mutability and water quotients) the ability for our leaders to simultaneously hold two opposing, even contradictory but equally true ideas in their heads and policy frameworks without going bananas/reductivist/having a cry. Anyway – here’s hoping!!๐Ÿ˜„X

Ooooh interesting! I read a Facebook astro post that predicted a Labor win based on election day chart as well as charts of major politicians.

whitewave

I’m with you! It’s going to be a long celebration. Amazing to see the Biloela family being able to go home.

Invicta

Ohhhh. This post is about Mars in Gemini. Classic example of the Gemini Virgo mercurial tendency to react. Read and act to what I think I know. To think I understand something because three words and the first bit of the sentence infer or allude to an associated topic and I have an opinion – always. Quicksilver. But Saturn is not mercury. And the sixth house is foundational. This Mars retrograde will be a masterclass and I must find my seat, close my mouth and open my ears.

magnolia

Can relate to your first two sentences Invicta, have Mercury at 0 degrees Cancer, but still always think I know what someone is going to say next and if they take too long to find a word, I say it for them, aagh!

in my birth chart I have Gemini ruling the sixth house and Saturn lives there. I find mercury retrograde brilliant for renovating and re designing the space.

She ainโ€™t holding her breath and I donโ€™t blame her Deep down I know she wants to believe in structural integrity and smooth running thatโ€™s sustainable. But itโ€™s a little messy and dusty and chaotic right now. Thatโ€™s fine. Work… Read more »

Mars goes into Gemini in August, and Lord, despite all the smack talk around Gemini flakiness the uber Gemini husband is already, despite natal Mars in Pisces, an action oriented guy. I tried to get him to do a Big 5 Personality test..but he was doing busy *doing* things. Now we’re gonna have Mars all over his Sun/Merc/Venus/Sat Gemini? As it is all largely in the 5th, I predict camping, noisy fingered flamenco music, BJJ in some form, and me trailing behind dragging my hypothyroidic butt while appearing, due my Gem Asc, a tad irritable. Appearing. I am sure it… Read more »

A steady stream of projects that I switch between but never abandon, that’s the manifestation of Venus/Mercury 4th and 3rd /Moon for me. Mars transiting 3rd then 4th will only intensify this. However, if a situation/project/person is not in tune with me, I will use that *revolving door* mentioned in an earlier post. I sort of get Mystic’s take on Gems re: projects being *experimental*, since mine always have a tinge of Neptune (trine said venus/Merc conj), and, Uranus inventiveness, but they are like precious babes for me that I see through to the end, although they are likely to… Read more »

Really like the idea of ‘experimental’ projects, it’s true. It’s nice to meet another Mars in Pisces, I find it a very curious placement. My partner is athletic, jovial, martial seeming but Aqua Asc/Jupiter in 12th makes for stand offishness, recalcitrance & independence. I always feel I might meet the real him one day, but never have, haha. It’s awesome as I had a habit of seeking emotionally unavailable boys, he is available and ever present but completely mysterious to me. Your Mars sounds auspicious, tell me more!

Tetrahedron

I don’t know about auspicious… My 12th house Mars is conjunct my Pisces ascendant and trine my 4th/5th house Sun in Cancer. My Mars is combust and that, besides the fact that I have three outer planets in Leo, makes me seem like all fire, very outgoing and social but in truth, I am very private and hide my true emotions most of the time. So I am fiery but never feverish. I don’t get fevers, but I get inflammations. I should be competitive and ambitious, but I’m not really. As a child I love, loved, loved running but didn’t… Read more »

Thank you for this excellent and detailed response! My goodness, I am sorry for your suffering and so impressed by your strength. The connection to astrology for health is interesting. I have Neptune and the Moon in my 6th so have multiple issues myself and as a parent of kids with issues. As to Mars/12, I see no passive-aggressive tendencies with this Mars either and instead a soft boundary that seems nebulous until the clouds drop. eg my Gem husband was walking at night and a cyclist rode into him. He wasn’t hurt, he checked the rider who had fallen… Read more »

Mars combust is when natal Mars and natal Sun are conjunct or aspected.

While the conjunction gives excellent athletic ability and a keen desire to compete, these people can be *sore losers*.

The trine is milder and gives athletic ability but the desire to compete is milder. In 12th house Pisces, it is nebulous. Competition might be acceptable if *fighting* for a cause.

Anyway, when a planet is combust, the effects are unseen, or difficult to interpret.

Tetrahedron

Thx, but no need to feel sorry. I believe my Soul chose this path for me, and I did the best I could with it. I believe that I was *saved* and didn’t die, and in those various situations, I was able to deal with a great deal of karma early on in life. Looking back, l can understand how I survived, even thrived because of this, due to my 12th house Mars conj Asc in Pisces trine my Sun. The hospital destroyed the records, but I remember a lady who was my tutor or teacher, and my scars also… Read more »

I see my 12th house Mars conjunct Asc. in Pisces trine Sun as the trouble-shooter, problem-solver, fixer side of my personality or character. I love putting out fires!

Lol, trouble shooting, problem solving, and putting out fires is literally my Gem’s job but via a pc.

The big 5 is such a fun test. Iโ€™m working on becoming more conscientious by purposefully using a schedule and making plans, sticking to them, keeping my word, to myself and others. Openness to experience 98th percentile so no need to work that aspect ha. But I believe itโ€™s possible to intentionally modify my character with work. Volatility for example has decreased with a focus on increasing conscientiousness. I read that making progress towards a valued goal creates positive emotion. Iโ€™d never thought about values or how to progress towards any kind of goal with the exception of being physically… Read more »

It is, isn’t it?! That’s interesting about the volatility decreasing with conscientiousness! My numbers were all high across the board, lol, except for politeness. I can work on my conscientiousness though. I was so madly driven to find my spiritual core my whole life, which I have to the point now I am in a state of peace and even my compassion isn’t creating the drive to work using my knowledge in this area. Perhaps it’s the fatigue or perhaps it is ennui or anxiety, I don’t know any more! Perhaps progress towards a valued goal will have its day… Read more »

Invicta

Equanimity is what most intelligent people strive for so yes, I say allow yourself to be seduced by it. Perhaps this fatigue is calling you into a direction or telling you what doesnโ€™t intrigue or inspire you? (apologies for being overly simplistic and possibly glib). I do understand how debilitating it is when someone else has the remote control and am not trying to dress up a difficulty as an advantage. ADHD is definitely not a superpower for me and in this world I want and even need to achieve tangible goals and will have my performance measured whether it… Read more »

sphinx

ADHD isn’t a superpower lol, I mean is behaving like a perma-teen charming? People who like me enjoy it I guess. I score high for enthusiasm, which suits my Gem Asc I guess, but my Moon in Scorpio is a bit one track. I can’t trust others easily either. But I do trust in ideas. So conscientiousness in terms of ADHD is an interesting question, I think a low result is due to the feeling of being outside time in the world of ideas. Creativity undirected will turn destructive it’s the nature of the beast, I think creativity needs conscientiousness!… Read more »

Thanks Sphinx yeah I assumed I was super low in conscientiousness in large part because I have been told I was that way. Daily shame storming and name calling, allegedly intended to improve my behaviour but I suspect more a symptom of bpd or something similar- splitting is a common psychological term and as soon as I read about it I was able to start understanding that this daily feedback didnโ€™t reflect on me and was instead a symptom of someoneโ€™s pathology. Iโ€™m a lot more conscientious in my basic nature than I believed myself to be. That fact these… Read more »

I am getting smacked around by Mercury Rx in Gemini so I am scared!

Can ‘Wet Leg’ be the headline band ? (bunch of teenage Brits, timewarped from 1975 – probably the last time Mars spent this long in Gemini)

Cecemesee

The ultimate musical experimental Gemini-genius-Jedi-move goes to Kendrick with his latest drop during Mercury Rx in Gemini and STILL receiving critical acclaim. Especially his deep fake visuals using some of the most polarizing / controversial / misunderstood figures of hiphop and entertainment to convey his art. When he said โ€œsometimes Iโ€™m afraid of my open mindโ€ I felt that!

Tetrahedron

With Merc/Venus and the Moon in Gemini, I suppose I am more club Gemini than I’ve cared to admit (although I’m more fire than air, anyway). In my family, both my sisters, my dad & my Granny were Gems, as well as a toddler in the family who “puts Ghosts in a box” and “blings” his pacifier.
Flakiness runs in the family…

Flakiness rules! I’d like to know how to put some ghosts in a box too. Might try the pacifier thing.

Tetrahedron

Gemini Sun/Moon/Asc’s temporary irritation with a ghost is banished to convenient box, kept nearby to be fed, played with or whatever, whenever Gemini temperament is inclined to… Flakiness maybe on the outside, the kid is in total control and not to be underestimated.

Gems may seem to be the flibbertigibbets of the zodiac, but they lead all the other Sun signs in the Nobel Price wins …. Very trixy, they are.

Agree. My kids are super Geminis but so not flaky. Smart as a whip and notice everything. One has a photographic memory which is incredibly reliable. Very trixy indeed.

Seven and a half months: is that unusually long?

Hey I’m not complaining. It’s Just what this Gemini Sun in the 4th house needs.
Natal Mars in the 8th House.

Yes! It ‘features’ a retrograde, which is why it’s so much longer than usual.

My sun and mercury just progressed into gemini last August together,hand in hand. They are in the vip section for the first bit but always end up in the back alley with the prep cooks and the barbacks taking smoke breaks.

They were in the 8th house too long and being a temporary Taurus for thirty years is a buzzkill. It’ll grow on them.

surlatable

Looking at the chart
I guess it’s my progressed birthday. Got the chiron return too in a cute semisquare to this sun gemini confab.

Each time I hear someone talk about their mlm side hustle or new take on anything a piece of my soul evaporates and rains down somewhere where people aren’t 5 seconds old.

surlatable

So I just got to my daily horoscopes saying Hekate was with the sun and gemini and so j plugged it into my chart. It’s progressed to this point as well.

This trio is exact. It’s my mercury sun hekate progressed birthday.

I fuqin love astrology.
