,When the God of War Meets the Art of Communication
“Thought is an idea in transit, which when once released never can be lured back, nor the spoken word recalled.” Pythagoras
This month Mars remains in Gemini for the entire month. He also is the main source of challenges throughout the month, although, as we all know communication is a 2-way street! War doesn’t exist without two sides with differing views. That said, the challenges emanate from him in two different directions which is like fighting the battle on two different fronts, then halfway through the month he switches to still fighting on two different fronts, but now, two DIFFERENT fronts, so four fronts altogether. Well, what did you expect? He is the God of War after all. If anyone can handle four fronts in one month, he can. The question is, can you?
Mars loves a good fight and Gemini is the sign of conflict for the purpose of finding harmony, which we often hope to do through communication and which often is the source of the conflict. When these two come together a battle of words is quite possible. This is a month to be cautious of your words, to take time to think. AND to remember that energy follows thought so it’s just as if you spoke aloud. The battlefronts may include your beliefs or your spiritual journey. It may be about the revelation of an understanding which didn’t exist before. While this can be a good thing, it can also upset the applecart in relationships where the parties thought they knew one another. Being aware of this potential can help us monitor our words as well as listen more carefully to the Other. Many communication issues result from a lack of good listening. Now is a great time to practice, which might suggest the purpose behind why the Universe would send us such a challenge.
