Mars traveling through Sagittarius will be an extra long cycle as it turns retrograde on April 17. It will move backward into Scorpio on May 27. From there, it will turn direct on June 29 and then back into Sagittarius on August 2.
Under the influence of Mars in Sagittarius, you’ll broaden horizons and approach life as a daring adventure. You may be constantly on the move, restless to explore new vistas and impatient with the daily grind.
Personal freedom is a high priority now, and you’ll feel an urge to break free from any stifling relationship or situation. “Don’t fence me in” could be your theme song.
Energy is high and you’ll enjoy physical exercise and competitive sports. Spending time in the wilderness – away from people and ordinary pressures – recharges batteries and fuels inspiration. Travel, especially to foreign destinations, could also be on the agenda, because you long to expand beyond the familiar and encounter different cultures.
During this transit, you’re likely to feel enthusiastic about a variety of pursuits, and your zest for life is contagious. You easily attract people with your adventurous spirit and optimistic outlook.
Just watch out for a tendency toward recklessness and irresponsibility, especially with other people’s feelings. You could be guilty of “foot in mouth” syndrome now, blurting out whatever comes into your mind without thinking through the consequences. Be quick to offer a sincere apology, and you’re likely to be forgiven.
