Mars enters Sagittarius this morning, and it’s important to know how fierce this sign really is. Sagittarius is a fiery and impulsive sign—the only zodiac sign armed with a weapon. It serves as the protector of the universe because it’s located literally at the entrance to the galaxy. The Archer’s bow and arrow are directed at anyone who aims to bring him down, allowing him to shoot straight to the heart of the matter. While Mars in Sagittarius may encourage aggressive assertion of our opinions, Mercury in Capricorn is far more cautious in conveying any message that we can’t verify. The devil is in the details here — we won’t easily convince anyone of anything today if we don’t have tangible proof. In fact, this atmosphere is very prone to self-righteous assertions that lead us down very treacherous rabbit holes. The Moon’s square to Pluto and Venus produces intense feelings but, despite yesterday’s confidence, we don’t yet really have our foundation secured enough to make broad ranging pronouncements. Today’s intensity is more likely to be draining, rather than stirring. The Moon goes void-of-course at 6:51 PM PST this evening following a sextile to Jupiter, which should help to soften the intensity at least a bit.
Known for a love of freedom and a resilient attitude, Sagittarius takes big risks in life and often gambles against the house in order to reap big rewards. The Archer always aims to expand and evolve his fertile mind through travel, philosophy, and education. Therefore, when Mars transits this sign, it can bring major action.
This planetary switch pushes us to make intellectual decisions and use our mindfulness to move through situations. Emotions can be deep and intense, but, as long as we stay true to our beliefs, we’ll be able to power through. Choosing your words wisely will be important over the next 30 days. More often than not, it’s easy to put one’s foot in one’s mouth when Mars is in Sagittarius. Think before you speak or send that text. It could save you a lot of drama.
Mercury enters Capricorn today too, making communication more serious. We will be more concise, direct, and blunt with Mercury in this diligent earth sign.
