reading this, I can’t help but think the election activities may get fired up even more…
Mars has exited Scorpio’s intense cauldron and zipped into passionate, adventurous, worldly Sagittarius until May 27. After two months of subterfuge, secret agendas and scintillating seduction, we are all ready to have everything be out in the open again. Mars in Sagittarius serves up more shots than a frat house fete—but of truth serum, not bargain-bin tequila. Honesty is indeed the best policy as long as tact and compassion don’t leave the building.
Mars is the planet of action, energy, and motivation, and spends about seven to eight weeks in each sign unless retrograde. With Mars in Sagittarius, there is abundant energy to assert opinions and beliefs and a greater push to fight for what feels morally correct. There may also be a desire to travel and to take on new viewpoints. Physical energy is strong with an increased enjoyment of sports and gambling.
Warrior Mars in Sagittarius could either stir the pot or bring some much-needed resolution to the international and multicultural crises flaring up around the globe. A continued focus on peace—in both the macro and micro corners of our personal worlds, too—adds a higher vision of love to the collective conscience.
Break out the passports and fire up the webcams (but please, leave the selfie sticks at home!) because Sagittarius is the globetrotting world traveler. This is a thrilling time for many to explore new vistas of our awesome planet or work together with people in distant lands on projects and business ventures.
Enterprising Mars in Sagittarius will be a golden phase for independent business owners, writers, teachers and publishers. But get rolling on any missions before Mars turns retrograde from April 17 to June 29, which could stall progress or bring some tricky opposition. Don’t be deterred! What doesn’t fully take off before late May will have a second chance from August 3 to September 27 when Mars makes a rare second appearance in Sagittarius.
“With this placement, we are going to feel a little restless, maybe even impatient at times — we want to explore. This is a great time to get into sports or some athletic activity. We have so many ideas and interests that we can’t just stick to one thing right now, so we may have several projects running at the same time.
It’s a time when we prefer to improvise and just wing it. That makes it more fun and brings a sense of adventure to our day. We also like to have some good debates with others, persuading them to share our beliefs. It’s not the best time to get too serious about life, as we prefer to feel free-flowing and excited about new things — especially when we can learn something new.
If you have an Aries Sun-sign or Rising-sign, you are going to feel more adventurous and probably more impatient. You may want to explore new sports or physical activities. If you are a Sagittarius Sun-sign or Rising sign, you will feel quite energized for the next 6 weeks. Channeling this energy into physical exercise or a project might be advisable.”
