Action planet Mars completes its long haul through Taurus, the sign of its detriment, entering lighter territory in Gemini at 8:40 p.m. CST tonight. The denseness, grounded effort, and slower timing of Taurus can be very frustrating for our boy Mars to endure, something it has had to do, like it or not, since entering the sign of the bull on March 31. We've really been putting our shoulders into it since then, enduring some heavy loads, and making some great progress in the physical world.
Things start to move a little more freely as Mars settles into social butterfly Gemini for a transit that lasts until June 24.
Social circulation starts to increase now. But with Mercury in an extended stay in Gemini, including retrograde period from May 18 to June 11, along with inflammatory Mars and soon the Sun, the social circuits could be humming a little too strongly!
