“Bring me my Bow of burning gold; Bring me my Arrows of desire: Bring me my Spear: O clouds unfold! Bring me my chariot of fire.”
– William Blake [Sun sign Sagittarius]
Mars, the god of war and passion finally moved out of Scorpio into Sagittarius early this morning Wednesday August 3 AEST, where it will reside until it moves into Capricorn on Sep 27. Here’s my take on how it may express in those with this placement in their birth charts:
Life for these natural born seekers and travelers is a quest for enlightenment or at least Adventure, undertaken through the highways and byways of foreign lands, literature, philosophy, religion, and their own visionary imagination. Their exuberant humour and enthusiastic story-telling combine to make them wonderful entertainers, guides and teachers. Strongly competitive, they strive to be the first to discover a place, to come top of the class, to know the answers to all the big questions, to win at sports or gambling, or to be the bravest in tackling the biggest wave or risky business venture, etc, etc. Negatively, an arrogant know-it-all attitude can express itself as loud and boorish punditry about life, the universe and everything, or, at worst, lead them to engage in righteous crusades to convert others to their own dogmatically held beliefs. Sex for them is a laughing matter, an un-inhibited, high-spirited experience to be enjoyed to the max!
