Mars Moves Into Sagittarius: Cast a Wide Net!
Sometimes you’ve got to step back and see the big picture instead of sweating the small stuff. That time is now. Ambitious Mars, the fiery red planet that stokes our motivation, has been in Scorpio since September 14 — causing us to hyper-focus on the finer points. Today, Mars moves into worldly Sagittarius until December 7, changing our microscopic focus to a wide-angle setting.
Have you lost sight of your passion and purpose? Gotten so obsessed with a pursuit or a point of view that your perspective is skewed? Mars in Sagittarius reminds us to see the divine comedy of life, to use laughter or humor as a weapon. This could certainly help ease dinner-table tension on Thanksgiving — with one caveat. Sagittarius is an outspoken sign, known for blurting out unvarnished opinions and inappropriate zingers. Edgy Mars in blunt Sag can make us all a bit tactless. Be careful not to blur the line between fact and opinion. Better to tell your aunt her new short hairstyle looks stunning (even if you secretly think she resembles Mrs. Doubtfire) or to suggest a game of Karaoke Revolution when the conversation turns to midterm elections or other charged topics.
