Question for Gemini Mars people: What's your biggest challenge? How do you handle it?
As a native gem Mars, my challenge is sustained interest in a topic. I try to keep my focus by diversifying my activities. Aka if I'm feeling bored, I pick up a book on an unrelated topic & read for a solid hour or two. That usually does the trick!

Where's your Mars? How do you use it to persevere?

Mars Aries. Impatience is the weal spot. Ability to act right now is the strength.

@aspire For what it's worth, I really admire Aries mars. I've had 2 people in my life with this placement; their ability to cut through bullshit is legendary

@gogol Thank you for that. I am not that - yet! - but I do aspire to that.

Mars Scorpio. Anger, and slow-burning rage that I never know when it will explode, and what banal thing will be the trigger. I don't release my anger so easily because I'm aware of how destructive it will be, and the other person will be destroyed forever. Self-control is something I really mastered, but it's an everyday process, I work on it every single day. I can hold a grudge for ages. Smile Even self-control can't help with that. Smile

@dori I've a Scorpio Mars too and totally agree with the simmering rage. I keep it in check quite well by realising when I'm wronged, the negative energy usually works its' way back to the perpetrator.

When I'm simmering a bit too much, I switch my attention to deep matters - psychology, reading Tarot cards, or tackling something that's bugging me, say, a topic in Astrology that I'm having a hard time understanding.

@plutolover I do the same, I go and study astrology because sometimes transits enrage me even more, better to say they have a tendency to evoke my anger about certain things or people. Astrology helps in a way: this too shall pass and just try not to talk. Smile I'm not a person who acts in a rage, but my words are worse than a blade.

@dori Yes! I have learned to bite my tongue when I'm angry 😉

@plutolover In such cases, I call my best friend and just say: I have a drama on the bridge (once I had a big anger outburst on the bridge, and since that we call it drama on the bridge in case any of the two of us is upset and needs to vent) and then I yell and pour my anger out, but without consequences. 😀

@plutolover thanks; imo it's interesting just how different aries & scorpio mars are, despite mars being ruler of both signs.

@dori I know a couple of Scorpio Mars & damn they can seethe! But imo, mars flavored mars beats all other flavors (but that's just my opinion)

@gogol do you know that my biggest regret is not becoming a doctor? Smile I love hospitals, I LOVE ER, that rush, adrenalin, I feel good in hospitals, like I belong there. When my dad died many years ago, I was his caregiver, over the night I felt like I lost my life purpose. I was feeling very empty and lost. It was very hard caring for him, exhausting, but when it came to an end, I missed it. Years later, I was in a situation where an older man, fainted in his bed and I was close. Kids came to fetch me to help, his wife was completely in shock, but I felt alive. I knew what to do, and when I brought him back to consciousness, I realized that I haven't felt that much good in years. I had to go under an urgent surgery, I almost didn't survive, but the surgery went well and I was okay. two days later, I was walking around my room, checking other patients' charts, checking closets in the hallway, to see all that medicine, always asking so many questions... 

I was supposed to be a doctor, maybe that's who I was in my last life. Now, I'm a project leader and I love it too, but not as much as medicine. Smile

@dori oh wow! One of my cousins (scorpio mars) is also this way; comes from a family of doctors & knew, very early on, that he'll also become one. Specializing in oncology, in fact.

@gogol I have doctors in my family, but we aren't close. I used to daydream about what my specialization would be: trauma doctor, neurologist or psychiatrist. I love the brain, for me the most mysterious part of the human body, like the universe. 😀

@leobra1221 thanks; despite having a libra venus, I have surprisingly come across very few libra mars people.

Mars in Gemini:  I have 6 tabs open on my PC right now. 

Challenge: 

I have to make lists to get anything done. I will literally be cleaning out a closet and somehow, I am in the garage 20 minutes later organizing a shelf. 

When angry I really have to watch my mouth. I can burn a bridge in two sentences. 

Exercise is necessary to stay grounded and be in control. I don't function well without it. Problem is, there were times there was just no time for it. Like during the time I had two kids as a single mom working two jobs. I end up with built up energy that turns into nervous energy. 

When nothing is going on I procrastinate. When I am at my busiest, I do my best work. Makes no sense.

@gogol I know.. it's almost impossible. It takes a lot of discipline. And even then ... eekk...  If I don't have a list, I am all over the place.

Mars in Virgo here. I'm very detail-oriented. I have a hard time stopping something before it's finished. I can be a perfectionist. I'm a bit impatient sometimes, though I generally hold my tongue. I also have Mars square Sun and Ascendant . I'm extremely driven, maybe to a fault. I bite off more than I can chew, but I don't care. I will sometimes push myself to extremes, especially if there's competition, I feel I have something to prove, or there's a lot on the line. I also multitask to the point where I need lists or I can't keep track of everything.
