Mars in Sagittarius: Drive and Creativity
“C.R.E.A.M” by Wu Tang Clan
Who explained working hard may help you maintain
To learn to overcome the heartaches and pain“
Mars is beginning its transit through Sagittarius, moving from the deep, introspective waters of Scorpio into the realm of fiery idealism.
When Mars transits the sign of the Centaur, we are drawn towards adventure, conquest, idealism, and excitement. Hot energy and strong ego can flare up quickly with this transit, but often dies down just as fast.
This Mars placement is excellent for storytellers, preachers, and high-powered salespeople. The stakes always seem a little bit higher with Sagittarius, and competitions can get heated. Routine can become a drag but travel, personal freedom, and idealistic achievements could also cloud the atmosphere. It’s easy to start a new project during Mars in Sagittarius, but it can also be a challenge to maintain the momentum.
Today’s song of the moment, “C.R.E.A.M” by Wu Tang Clan, a throwback to the old-school days of the 90s, was produced by Mars-in-Sagittarius native and Wu Tang Clan member RZA. As a rapper, producer, and actor, RZA personifies the positive aspects of Mars in Sagittarius: an unrelenting drive and creativity that can’t be boxed-in by just one career.
“C.R.E.A.M” is a quintessential 90s hip hop masterpiece, an acknowledgement that yes, money rules the world (for better or for worse), but it can also keep you motivated and focused. RZA goes deep here, giving us a glimpse into how he escaped a life of crime through music – and unrelenting curiosity.
