When the Sun enters expansive Sagittarius, it’s time to open our hearts and souls to all the great opportunities the world has to offer! Sagittarius is a bold Fire sign that loves to travel, have fun, and learn new things, so now is a time to take that trip, read that book, or take that class. It's certainly time to start something fresh.
Luck runs high and optimism rules under the Sagittarius Sun. Rather than focusing on what we can’t do, it’s time to realize all the things we can do. Rise beyond your limits, and go big or go home. Watch out, though - Sagittarius is known as the sign of big truth and big lies. Because this sign is ruled by huge, expansive Jupiter, it’s hard not to exaggerate a little (or a lot) under the Sagittarius Sun.
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.
