Two people stand in front of hot air balloons.

Mars is the planet of energy and drive. In the natal chart, Mars shows what drives you to take action and how exactly you act. In transit, Mars brings energy and drive to whatever it’s touching in your natal chart.

Sagittarius is a Mutable Fire sign, so this is a very active sign. It’s adventurous, always up for a good time, and willing to take a chance. It looks at the bright side and wants to pursue all opportunities for new experiences in life.

Combine the two, and you get a fiery planet in a fiery sign, amplifying energy and driving you to seek out ways to expand, explore, and experience. It’s a time for adventure, excitement, and an open mind.

Bring a bright, happy attitude into your relationships and dealings with others, and bring partners on new ventures.

Cancer: Adventurous Work

You may find that a little fun in your daily life also helps you with your health and relieves some stress - a bonus!

You may find that the more adventure you have and the more you enjoy yourself, the better you feel emotionally and the more secure you can be. So go have a mini-adventure!

Libra: Adventurous Mind

You may want to find new ways to improve stability and security in your life, and you can strive to live more closely with your values, which makes you feel more confident in yourself.

Sagittarius: Adventurous Anything
