⭑Hello Gemini!⭑

Welcome to your 2022 MARS RETROGRADE Survival Guide!

You are a happily busy sign, always mentally active and multi-tasking. This period puts this to the test, as MARS turns retrograde in YOUR sign, affecting you more than most. Pag baliktad si Mars, the energy is slower, which might make you feel restless and uneasy. Goals and tasks take much longer to accomplish, but no worries! If navigated well, you can emerge from this with more wisdom, unscathed and happier even!

‘Tis also the season of laziness, with MARS turning backwards, tapos malamig, maulan. It may seem so difficult to get things done, so it might be best to save significant endeavors either before or after this period.  Mars retrograde restricts energy and forward movement, making it difficult to accomplish even the smallest of tasks. Maximum effort usually yields minimum results, kaya nakakawala lalo ng gana. 

Also, with Mars also retrograding in Gemini the sign of communication, data and information, clashes of words and thoughts may lead to a standstill of action, and instead of moving forward, natetengga sa arbitrary discussions. Parang court case na stuck sa courts ng ilang taon na, puro appeal, tapos sa daming ebidensya on both ends, hindi na lalo makausad. Puro pasabog, pagalingan, walang nagbibigay, wala din nananalo.

This is not the time to start something new. Instead, it is a good time to revisit and improve upon existing endeavors. Rather than starting new initiatives, it’s better to improve your current projects. This is a time  to reflect, bago ulit mag full speed ahead.

Mars starts its reverse motion in your sign! It goes backwards in your 1st House, covering the area highlighted below:

Mars turns backwards in your solar 1st House, making this retrograde quite personal for you. You are likely to feel tired easily, and high effort is needed to fight feeling either sluggish, or antsy from wanting to move about but not being able to. Mapapansin mo nalang na lagi kang inaantok, kahit hindi ka naman puyat. Your self awareness will be heightened, and you may second guess yourself more than usual too, during this time. This allows you the space for introspection, so you can assess if there are things about you that needs revision. Mas magiging conscious ka sa pag-galaw mo, sa itsura mo, pati kung paano ka mag-salita Lahat yan up for inspection during this time. Your temper is also a point of concern now – How do you handle anger? Are you a pushover, or are you overly aggressive? These are concerns that are likely to come up during this period.

Reminders for this time:

  • This is the perfect time to learn lessons that may refine and level up how you present yourself to the world. Situations that highlight your flaws might come up, and people might be more honest than usual. Its best to be open to constructive criticism. Ikagaganda at ikagagaling mo lang ito, so try not to be defensive!

  • Be more conscious of your health. Mabilis ka mag-kasakit  at mapagod ngayon, kaya kailangan mapunuan mo yung mababawas na energy, so eat well, take your vitamins, and make sure you get enough rest!

  • Extend your patience as much as you can. Everyone is prone to slow energy during this time, and impatience may lead to frustration. You have to remember too, na ikaw din ngayon, may tendency maging mabagal.  Avoid pointing fingers. There is high probability na for stress, as most now feel pressured or trapped. Either some people are too slow and you are compelled to overcompensate for them, and some naman will push for movement, kahit seemingly irrational ang request. Communicate your concerns peacefully, try not to flare up!

  •  Please Please Please DRIVE CAREFULLY! Lalo ngayon, tag ulan! ‘Wag magmadali or manggit-git. Accident prone ka ngayon, so take extra care!

  • This is also a good time to review your life plans – are they still aligned with your inner truths? Baka naman nag bago ka na, and hindi mo na pala gusto yung ginagawa mo, na o-obliga ka nalang. The first step is to be honest with yourself – everything else will follow.
