When I was a kid, I loved puzzles of all kinds. I have an active mind and I’ve always been interested in finding solutions to problems.
I was fairly sophisticated in this realm but the time I was ten years old. I just don’t like sitting around with oppressive problems if there’s a way out.
With Mars conjunct Mercury in my chart – tactical thinking is my forte. This true story provides a clear illustrations or my internal operations.
I came across this quote this morning: “The system has no solutions; it only generates new problems.”
It seems true to me. Let’s just say, I’ve not seen the “system” solve even one problem throughout my entire life!
Now if you think tactically, as you should with Mars in Gemini for seven months, it’s pretty clear if you want something done or fixed or resolved, your best bet is to do it yourself. Nobody was going to get me to heaven in that story outside of me, myself and I!
I’m willing to bet there are problems and challenges in your life that fit this template. This is a great time to mastermind solutions or ways to deal with whatever is dogging you. You simply have to fire up (Mars) your brain (Mercury).
I don’t think problem-solving is modeled much anymore. Maybe it never was. I addressed this in this workshop
I wanted to demonstrate my method(s) of using the natal chart to assist in breaking through or transcending and problem or block you might face. It’s a clean, unfettered way of thinking.
The collective is becoming more and more aware, you don’t make money by curing people or truly fixing problems. I don’t care! I CARE about untying knots and truly helping people. With Mars in Gemini, you want to pick up the mental knife and use it, rather than stand by passively and to victimized by it.
I left home when I was fifteen years old – why? To solve my problem, obviously. It worked out beautifully. Now what if I had not solved my problem?
I would not have enjoyed the last 30 years of my career as an astrologer, that’s for sure.
What do you want? How to you feel about puzzling out a way to get it with Mars in Gemini?
