Mars stations Retrograde in Gemini October 30, 2022 at 9:26 am ET.

Mars will be Retrograde in Gemini from October 30, 2022 until January 12, 2023.

We have already seen a lot of backtracking on information in September and October with Mercury, the ruler of Gemini, going Retrograde in Libra and Virgo, especially related to truth and health.

Since August 20th, 2022 Mars has been in Gemini where we’ve seen an escalation of talk and actions associated to war, as to be expected since Mars is the warrior.

Gemini rules the arms and hands, which are a significant part of non-verbal communication. Observing how people’s actions do or do not coincide with what they are saying can give a lot of clues to what is really going on. People’s reactions to information and opinions can be highly revealing now as well.

It’s also wise to be extra careful when driving a vehicle or operating machinery with moving parts, especially when using your hands to avoid accidents. Also be wise to how your words and actions can cause or relieve tension, particularly with those you interact with in your close social circle, or anyone in close proximity. Those that demonstrate violent behavior can expect quick responses. Others will want to dial back aggression. It’s wiser to simmer down.

Now with Mars going Retrograde in Gemini we can expect more backtracking and seeing another side to the story. Essentially Mars in Gemini indicates an information war. A battle of the minds and evidence of biases are strongly indicated. Misinterpretations of actions are also likely, as biased opinions and hiding information can put a twisted spin on what’s really happening. Some people are highly willing to lie to attain their self centered goals.

To decipher and discover best now, it would be wise to look for double meanings, and to read between the lines.

We could see the egos of leaders double down in their efforts, while others will reverse their positions creating conflicting points of view. Strategies are likely to change and the information could reveal that tactics and reasons have largely been hidden.

When information is revealed it provides the opportunity to make decisions, rethink strategies, come up with different solutions and take actions to solve problems.

This is a time to change course. We are reminded that the same actions lead to the same results, and repeating the same actions and expecting different results is insanity.

And since we’re close to Halloween as Mars stations Retrograde here’s a quote that sums it up, “If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always got.” ~ Reginald the Vampire.


We also want to look at Mercury, the ruler of Gemini for further clues about what’s going on now. Mercury is in Scorpio when Mars stations Retrograde.

This is a smart time to be a sleuth. A lot of the attention will also be on what’s going on in the political, business and financial realms with Pluto in Capricorn. Big money in pursuit of power and control are dominating themes influencing the larger picture now. It is the changes leaders are manifesting that have the biggest impact. Observing words and actions coming from those in authority will give strong clues to the changes on the horizon. Plans that are intentionally destructive to recreate transformation are a key element to what’s going on.

With Mars the warrior going retrograde, we could see a lot of retaliation for past words, actions and activities that were hidden and could be revealed now. Those that are caught red-handed or have blood on their hands are likely to be in the cross hairs.

We could also see a lot more backtracking on what’s been said in information exchanges, especially by leaders and those in media. Records in social media, audio and video will point out who really said what, when. Issues surrounding censorship are likely to be quite prominent.

There could be more attention on what goes on behind the scenes with the military as well as athletes during this period. Reversals of past opinions or regrets of past actions could be revealed.

If there are events like cyber attacks or military actions, the battle to hide and control information is likely to dominate, but the biased reactions can reveal more to the story. Efforts to maintain control of targeted information can say a lot.

Pluto is the higher octave of Mars and shows no mercy where the truth of dirty deeds by those in positions of power are concerned. Pluto reveals the darkest recesses of reality to purge. Crime and corruption are likely to be under the microscope with Mars going Retrograde and Mercury in Scorpio.
