Mars in Gemini | Ayurvedic Astrology For Mental Health

Episode Topics

  • August 20, 2022 planet Mars enters Gemini
  • Mars stays in Gemini until end of March 2023
  • This is a rare transit, last time a similar transit occurred was in 1991
  • Mars's transits tend to usually last about 6 weeks or so, not 7 months
  • A 7-month transit makes Mars a slow planet which goes against Mars's strong tendency for speed
  • Mars is about action, if you are going to fail, fail fast
  • Ayurvedically, Mars is associated with our physiological guts, our emotional guts and our mental guts.
  • Ayurvedically, Gemini is a highly Vata sign associated with the realm of communication, travel and study
  • If we are relatively balanced, this 7-month period can give us the courage to exercise a lot more of our creative expression and actually turn it into something tangible
  • Think about doing anything and everything that you have been procrastinating on because you have the tendency to get in your own way
  • If someone is not relatively balanced  it can lead to anxiety, impatience, anger, depression, since Vata is the fastest dosha to go out of balance
  • How do we know if we are relatively balanced?
  • According to Charaka (the original Ayurvedic physician),  health is known as happiness while disorder is unhappiness
  • Are you happy at least 80% of the time?  Then you are healthy.
  • If however, you are not happy at least 80% of the time, then the Rig Veda, a text that predates Ayurveda, says: One should eat nutritious food and exercise regularly to have sound health.
