Saturn has been moving through Aquarius throughout 2021 and 2022, while Neptune has been in Pisces for a lot longer (since 2011/2012).
On its path through Gemini, Mars makes harmonious contact with Saturn, aligned in the air signs.
To me, this speaks of following the rules, social etiquette, being politically correct, on the side of humanity, gathering information on behalf of communities, having gone through some great changes at the level of society and its many groups (from continents and countries, to districts, cities and neighbourhoods, to niche sectors and interest groups online).
Mars also clashes with Neptune, within a couple of weeks each way.
My interpretation of this is the struggle against mis-information, fakery, deception, loose outlooks on life (drug abuse, apathy and tuning out through scrolling, streaming or addictions to our screens).
This is a key moment of illumination.
Mars will be back at a point on the Zodiac wheel before having made contact to Saturn or Neptune.
It’s almost a moment of reprieve, where we get to focus and tackle things at a very basic level (with Neptune & Jupiter not directly involved).
Definitely one to watch, a high moment for the themes of Gemini… Read more about the Full Moon in Gemini, here – horoscope coming soon!
