Driven and assertive Mars is quite happy in the energetic, fiery sign of Sagittarius. Mars is the planet of action. He represents our initiative and the ways in which we push ahead -- and while he moves through the sign of the aspiring Archer, the sky is the limit!
Everything is bigger while Mars moves though Sagittarius. We want more during this transit. We want to reach, to expand, and to explore. We want to go further than we ever have before. When we can’t find what we need in our current lives, Mars in Sagittarius steps in to help us look beyond our present limitations and realize the vast possibilities that are available to us.
When Mars is in Sagittarius
Sagittarius the Archer is optimistic and capable, and doesn’t see the same boundaries that everyone else sees. While motivated Mars blazes through this sign, we all get a taste of Sagittarius’ expansive way of life. Things shine a little brighter, and we’re able to see possibility where we couldn’t see any before.
Mars in Sagittarius not only has a vision, but also has the drive to turn that vision into something real. We can approach obstacles with optimism and enter new territory with the confidence of someone who’s been there before. We may feel less focused on the present moment during this transit, though, because we’re paying so much attention to what comes next.
There’s also a danger of going overboard while Mars is in Sagittarius. We’re impulsive and more likely to take risks, and may take things way too far if we don’t remember moderation.
Mars in Sagittarius wants to take it all in. People, places, feelings, knowledge, beliefs... It’s a time to seek the truth, so we cannot be closed off. We must remain open, because the answers we need could be anywhere. Learning about different belief systems and philosophies helps us realize there is no one right way of living and connecting. The further we reach and the more we seek to know, the more we understand ourselves and the things that happen in our lives.
There’s no better time to travel than during Mars in Sagittarius! But this isn’t about a relaxing trip to the beach -- it’s about finding something that is beyond us. It’s about having experiences that expand our minds and hearts, and realizing there is so much more to this world than we know. However, traveling far and wide doesn’t have to mean leaving the country, or even our home towns. Cracking open a few books on a new subject, signing up for a class, or spending time with people from other cultures can help satisfy this urge to expand and explore, too.
