Mars stays in the Zodiac sign of Gemini from the 27th of May until the 11th of July 2017. This red, hot planet is very powerful. Mars rules over action, impulses, blood, sexuality, temper, sports, willpower, muscles and war.
In its unrefined form, Mars is a symbol for destruction. According to the sign Mars is residing in and its nature within the horoscope, a number of new possibilities, good and bad are evolving from its position.
Presently Mars is not only staying in the Zodiac sign of Gemini, but also in the Naskhatra Mrigashira. The Nakshatra is a very small part within each sign of the Zodiac and defines a certain quality. There are 27 Nakshatras in Vedic Astrology.
Mars happens to rule over Mrigashira. This Nakshatra is represented by a deer’s head, known as the quality of the searcher of the truth, showing the softer side of Mars, using willpower for gaining more spiritual clarity, being involved emotionally, searching for a soul mate, sexuality, arts and performances, spirituality.
These qualities are combined with the Zodiac sign of Gemini which is ruled by Mercury. Gemini represents the two sides of everything, the need for light and space, free spirit, quick pace, fast thinking and the abundance of possibilities.

You need more physical actions than ever! Take care of your speech, especially when you are debating with others. Nothing is as severe as it seems.
