Ever wonder if there was some universal influence over your day to day life? Something that you have zero control over, but holds the keys to whether you are having a successful year or not? Astrologists believe that sun signs are that key.
Sun signs give meaning to the events in our lives. Often, they can explain our partner’s personality traits and how they blend with our own. They can also explain the pieces of ourselves and others that we just cannot put our fingers on. Astrologists compile data from the star signs, the 12 houses, and the planets to give us an overall outlook on our daily lives.
Traits of a Sagittarius
Sagittarians are those who are born between November 23rd and December 21st. The planet Jupiter rules this sign. Jupiter brings:
This alignment also gives growth, wealth, development, and plenty of luck. Other traits that the Sagittarian possesses are:
- Idealistic Nature
- Lofty Goal
They also like their freedom and the ability to explore whether it be domestically or overseas. Sagittarians are very competitive, which makes them natural extroverts with excellent communication skills.
Sagittarians are the ultimate optimists, with widely ambitious and open minds. However, they are a fire sign. Fire signs are known for their volatility and fiery demeanors. As a while, fire types are quick to anger but are equally as quick to forgive. Fire signs are also:
- Passionate about life
Many of these fire attributes show up readily in the Sagittarian’s personality. Gender plays a role in how the traits are perceived.
Male Sagittarians are incredibly charismatic. This trait creates a certain magnetism around them that naturally draws people into their circle. Breaking through the people, a male Sagittarian, can prove to be very time-consuming.
Male Sagittarians also have an abundance of optimism. However, as Linda Goodman states in her blog Sun Signs, looking up for the next goal to shoot for with their proverbial bow and arrow can lead to a disaster as Sagittarins blind faith will most certainly drive them into an unforeseen pitfall.
His imagination knows no limits, but it can also get him into trouble. However, luck is strongly on their side. The male Sagittarian will “luck” his way into or even out of situations with ease.
Their symbol is a bow and an arrow, which is fitting since they are incredibly blunt and can often make you feel as if they hit you with one of those arrows. The phrases that come out of their mouths are completely uncensored and seem to have no prior thought. Often they do not mean what they say in the way that it sounds. The male Sagittarius will attempt to justify what they said in a way that may or may not make you feel better about their original statement.
Goodman has the perfect example in her blog Sun Signs. She states, “you will have every right to take offense when a Sagittarian man who has just met you gazes at you… and remarks that you’re just the kind of woman a man would choose for a mistress.” An interesting choice for a backhanded compliment if there ever was one.
He will go on to explain, “kings and aristocracy back in the middle ages married for convenience. Their wives, therefore, were often ugly, drab creatures, with good bloodlines. But their mistresses were beautiful and brilliant, the kind of girls they would have chosen to fall in love with and marry if the rules had been different.”
This logic is typical of the Sagittarian male. It is an interesting fact that they had learned in their pursuit of more knowledge about that particular era, and they have found a practical way to use it as a compliment, however inept. Usually, their boyish charm and lighthearted demeanor will help them get off with no harm, no foul for such strange commentary.
Male Sagittarians are not the sentimental type as they find sentiment to be a trivial pursuit. They can be, however, very flirtatious, which can get them in trouble. Many times the male Sagittarian does not mean anything by his flirting. Most often, he is just being overly friendly and trying to be charming. If a woman mistakes this as him pursuing her, it will likely end poorly.
If he decides that a woman is worth his time, he will likely be attracted to her on one level with the assumption that the other will follow, either physical or mental. If it doesn’t, he may stick around in the relationship as long as whomever he is dating is still interested. This outlook generally sets Sagittarius up for a nasty breakup as he is not fully committed.
Mars Lunar Qualities
Mars, as a planet in astrology, represents raw and crude energy. It has its own force and fury that compliments it’s position in the solar system as well as it’s proximity to the sun. The red planet is a fiery force of nature that will bring many attributes to the table.
Conversely, Mars can bring negative attributes as well, such as:
It can tear through your sign, or it can give you the constructive push you need to begin a new adventure.
How Mars Influences Male Sagittarians
With traits like that, Mars’ influence on the already blunt and forceful Sagittarius can either enhance their positive attributes or turn their misguided ones towards the negative.
A Mars-influenced male Sagittarian will be incredibly adventurous, making them willing to go out and get just about anything, at least once. Mars makes them very raw and untamed.
It also brings out masculine qualities almost to the point of being overly masculine. They will want to be traveling, learning, and as a result, will enjoy teaching people the knowledge they have picked up along the way.
As long as they get to do their adventuring on their own accord, they will be happy. Mars enhances their confidence, which makes them incredibly sure of themselves, especially when it comes to things they believe and their opinions.
Mars will present itself in Sagittarian relationships as extraordinarily social to the point that they can be quite the party animals of you will. They will subscribe to a party-hard mentality, sometimes a little too hard for their good, which brings a lack of better judgment on their part.
When it comes to romantic entanglements, they prefer to have as much freedom as possible without too many traditional constructs. Athletic in nature, they may treat sex as a sport, another thing to win. Their nature is adventurous, and this will likely carry over into the bedroom too.
Since Sagittarian is very lucky, Mars in Sagittarius enhances that luck. However, this natural luck can lead to feelings of invincibility, making things like stock trading and gambling, dangerous pursuits.
They will take risks, and their sense of optimism will try to take over and make them lose all logic. They will not learn from their past, making them repeat the same mistakes over and over again.
It is good for Mars in Sagittarian to keep himself fit and active. They are best suited for being the quintessential masculine specimen. They need to have plenty of exercises. Due to Mars nature, the rougher the sport, the better. They will find themselves leaning towards games such as:
They may also be inclined to play football, though they are naturally clumsy, which may get in the way of them achieving their potential in this contact sport. If they do not channel their masculine energies into sports, they will become unhealthy with a bend towards massive anxiety.
Mars in Sagittarius men can quickly get stuck in their own heads. They can wax philosophical and start to obsess over their thoughts and ideas. This obsession can present itself as a god complex if allowed to go on for too long. They require a balance of physical and mental agility to remain their best.
Overall Take Away
Mars brings an extra forcefulness to Sagittarius’ already strong personality. They will be even blunter in their conversations, stubborn in their opinions, and steadfast in their beliefs. Despite their abrasive communication style, people see their charm and ability to become the life of the party.
Their positivity allows them to be a welcomed companion who is not often angry and generally deflects these emotions with humor. They will defend themselves if need be, but they would rather keep the peace overall.
Generally, nomadic Mars in Sagittarius men are difficult to pin down. They may settle in for a time, but it is typically short term. They tend to get antsy and feel the call of the next learning experience and adventure. Mars in Sagittarius men are fun to be around despite their abrasive traits.
