The Basics

Mars symbolizes our desires, our energy levels, and how we take action. With Mars in Sagittarius, you have a strong desire for adventure, exploration, and freedom. You are independent and have a strong need for personal space and autonomy, which can sometimes make you appear aloof or distant to others.

Your energy levels are high and you have a restless, impatient nature, always seeking the next thrill or challenge. You have a blunt and outspoken communication style, which can sometimes get you into trouble if you are not careful about how you express yourself.

You are a risk-taker and not afraid to take bold actions to achieve your goals, even if it means going against the norm or societal expectations. Your optimistic and philosophical nature gives you a broad perspective on life and a willingness to take chances on new ideas and experiences.

You value honesty and directness in others and are not afraid to speak up when you see injustice or hypocrisy. However, your rebellious nature can sometimes lead you to rebel against authority for the sake of rebellion itself, without considering the consequences of your actions.


*Look at your Cosmodyne scores to see whether your Mars is Harmonious or Discordant.

In our AI model, Mars is considered a Malefic - everyone starts out with a (discordant) negative score and harmony points are added from this base configuration if applicable.  It is perfectly normal to have a negative score.

(As we age, we learn to deal with all of our discordant placements, and hopefully, we evolve into more harmonious beings than our Natal charts suggest.)

Transits to your Mars, especially from the outer planets, can greatly affect its expression as well.
