“Maybe some women aren't meant to be tamed. Maybe they just need to run free until they find someone just as wild to run with them.”
-- Candace Bushnell
Mars moves into the wanderlust sign of Sagittarius on October 7 and will stay there through November 17. This is definitely one of the more restless positions for the fiery planet. The grass is definitely always greener, and the farther away the promise of excitement and adventure, the better. Mars wants to run free, untethered to anything small, petty or mundane while firing up the sign of the Archer.
A lot of physical outlets are necessary, so if all else fails and you feel your energy all pent up, take a brisk run around the block before you bite someone’s head off! Anger quickly escalates but luckily as long as no one adds fuel to the fire you can also burn through the frustration more quickly than usual. Sag is not known for being patient or tactful, so you can expect a lot of blunt confrontations where the old Jupiterian truth serum is doled out quite liberally. If you can’t take it, don’t dish it out because all is fair fodder under this transit favoring between-the-eyes honesty.
Just like an archer, Mars in Sag confrontations rarely miss their mark. Sag tells it like it is and Mars shows the energy and style in which we fight. You won’t have to worry about any secrets or beating-around-the bush-behavior during this transit. People will have no problem telling you exactly what they think about you and how they truly feel about you. If you are one of the more sensitive types, you may actually have to request that people keep their thoughts and opinions to themselves for the next few weeks.
There is also a tendency for people to get preachy in the coming weeks. Philosophical ideas can easily turn into dogma under the fiery and righteous energy of Mars in Sagittarius. Just remember, truth and freedom are the driving forces during this transit, so try to make the best of both.
