The Tower's Lightening Strikes the Lovers' Angel - Mars in Gemini

Lightening Strikes the Lovers’ Angel

Mars has moved into Gemini and will be there until June 4th.

Looking at this transit from a Tarot perspective, it’s like the Tower’s struck the Lovers’ Angel. The heavens are shaking. Are the Lovers about to go for a tumble?

Mars in Gemini, or the Tower striking the Lovers’ Angel, can be a time of disruption in relationships, and mental attitudes. Commitments you thought were sturdy, might suddenly not seem so solid.

But paradise lost could actually mean freedom from choices that no longer satisfy.

New information and circumstances can ultimately lead to expansion of the mind and a deepening of commitment. A new solidity can be established, but the foundation is likely to shift.

Look at this period as a challenge to be as open-minded as you can. Ideas will likely be flying fast and furious. Options you hadn’t considered might soon seem quite reasonable.

Go with the flow. Liberation and illumination are possible. Not despite the chaos, but because of it.

Be still, aware and fearless. It might be dark outside, but if there was ever a time you can navigate the unknown, this is it. Listen, breathe, flow.
