Mars in Sagittarius is motivated to cover great distances, always seeking what’s at the edge of the horizon. There’s great energy bursts with your Mars, but it comes in fits and starts.
Your Mars is mutable, so you’re all about spreading the joy, making tracks and acting on hunches. This is a very instinctive Mars, for gut-level guidance about what’s got potential. Having a mutable (changeable) Mars means you’re flexible and spontaneous.
A Greater Force
In his book on spiritual astrology, Per Henrik Gullfoss writes that mutableMars signs are focused in the moment, and able to be quick on their feet, in making choices.
But mutable signs don’t hold the focus, and therefore don’t have the stamina of cardinal or fixed Mars signs. He writes, “So the mutable Mars is here to learn how to use force itself to move on. It needs to align itself with greater forces and wills than the personal.”
What could that greater force be? That’s where the secret to staying motivated lies, since Sagittarius is on a mission to gain knowledge, live truthfully and go beyond personal limits.
