Good golly, another planet changes signs, that makes four in as many days! Mars goes into Sagittarius today, and with it comes some velocity, especially for leaps of faith. I see the definition for that oft-used phrase is act of trust. This Mars is about trusting that gut instinct, and acting spontaneously.
It's a lucky Mars to have with us through November 16th, for a sense of being divinely guided. We act on what we intuit will jettison us forward. Sagittarius is Jupiter-ruled, the planet that gets us excited about taking the right risks -- the ones that widen our world and worldview.
If you're a natal Mars Sagittarius, you're happiest when in motion. The two friends I have with this Mars are both dancers, and one just serendipitously called me while I was writing this!
She used to be the premier bellydancing teacher where I live until she moved to Hawaii, so it was a blast from the past. Characteristically, she mentioned being restless, and ready to move again. And the call was short and sweet, as she was in-between goings on.
What's on the to-do list with Mars in Sagittarius? This tempo change with Mars can jumpstart you out of passive stagnation, for a sense of making progress. There's a desire for more real world, rather than virtual engagement. The impetus to move, with exercise or outdoor sports is activated. It's a time when things can come together in unexpected ways.
The medium of this Mars is inspiration -- what wakes you up, rather than drains your life force. Staying alert to what makes you feel more alive, and naturally gets you moving is key to making most of this physically energizing Mars transit. This offer is good through November 16th, 2012!Whirling Dervishes - Photographer's Choice/Getty Images
